UNO, everyone’s favorite card game, has in recent years become “unplayable”. Not because it is bad. It is because it has become a collectible item – thanks to a series of super cool collab UNO cards Mattel has introduced. Speaking of which, yes, there is going to be a new collab UNO, this time, it is with Japanese contemporary artist Takashi Murakami as part of the UNO Artiste Series.
With the soon-to-be-available Takashi Murakami x UNO Artiste Series, expect to find familiar characters and playful iconography by the artist, including Mr. DOB, smiling flowers, and more.
The cards in the Takashi Murakami x UNO Artiste Series have a premium finish and also include a unique surprise: four double-sided “Artiste Extra” cards that create two different art pieces. The set will be perfect for both UNO collectors as well as art lovers.
The set includes one UNO card deck containing 112 cards, each featuring a piece of art drawn by the artist in his signature Superflat style masterpieces. While so, the gameplay of UNO does not change. Players will still match cards by color, number, or in this instance, iconic art piece. Rounding up the package is a 5×7 mini poster of Murakami-san’s iconic smiling flowers.
The Takashi Murakami x UNO Artiste Series will be available from creations.mattel.com on August 05, 2022, at 9 AM PT, for US$25.
