Crazy Eights is our alternative to the popular card game! Play the world famous card game with the +4! You can play the popular card game here on gidd.io with all your friends. Uno is Spanish for one. And that’s exactly what you have to say when you have only one card left.
This cardgame is a great adventure for friends and family. You have all the good cards to annoy your teammates like the Skip card, where the player misses his next turn or the reverse card, where you can change the play direction. Of course, if you want to get one over on your opponent, you can use the draw two (+2) card and let the next player draw two, but don’t forget, this card can be stacked. But you can also use the draw four card (+4) where you can choose the next color and your next opponent has to draw four cards. Last but not least you have the color change card and the normal number cards in different colors.
At Gidd.io you can configure various settings for Crazy Eights. You can set the Uno delay time and enable how oft a powercard should be placed at all.
Furthermore, Gidd.io allows you to customize the deck itself for more fun. You can change the amount of plus 2 and plus 4 cards in the deck. The higher frequency of drawing cards makes the game unpredictable. Fun guaranteed.
There is no real winning strategy for crazy eights, most of the time it comes down to pure luck. Some basics can be applied for most games.
Save your “choose colour” and “plus 4” cards for when you need them. They are precious. Play them when you otherwise would have to draw a card, otherwise you might struggle when you’re nearing the end of the game.
Pay close attention. If a player forgets to call out his “UNO”, you must hit the button and force him to draw an additional card as punishment. This could allow you to make an awesome comeback.
Be optimistic. Uno is very unpredictable. Although it might seem like you are close to losing, because all other players have less cards, this can change at any second.
Never ever give up!
