UNO, the American shedding-type card game, is never associated with ‘premium’ or being ‘classy’ (perhaps, UNO Minimalista is an exception?). Makes sense, after all, it is a card game designed with family and kids in mind.
No one expect to be playing UNO with a glass of Martini dry but not stirred and with extra olives, right? Well, perhaps you could with the UNO 50th Anniversary Premium Card Set.
UNO turns 50 this year and Mattel is marking the card game’s golden jubilee by introducing new decks, including aforementioned premium 50th anniversary edition and the Iconic Series featuring throwback designs.
Plus, there will be a “diverse slate of collaborations” and the first-ever global UNO Tournament.
While we are waiting to hear from those, you can get your hands on the UNO 50th Anniversary Premium Card Set now from Walmart for US$14.88. But you may want to hurry because, last checked, there are just 4 sets left.
For the premium price, you will get a set of UNO cards in deluxe packaging, an exclusive commemorative gold coin, and added gameplay with a special “50/50” card.
If you prefer not to splurge, there’s the “lesser” UNO 50th Anniversary Card Deck, featuring GOLD wild cards.
If you are an UNO collector, you want to check out a couple of collaborative limited-edition decks, including UNO x The Hundreds (US$25) and UNO Artiste #3 – Nina Chanel Abney (US$20). No wait. We just checked. Those are sold out. Bummer.
