This minimal and very striking Uno redesign has been done by Brazilian designer Warleson Oliveira, and while it looks like the kind of thing that’ll be sold for $US100 ($162) at a select few stores around the world, Mattel is actually going to be giving this thing a widespread and affordable release.

With an all-black card design and smaller iconography, it’s probably not as easy to play as the original, but it sure does look nice.

It’ll be selling for $US10 ($16) at loads of international retailers in the coming months (or…who knows, really, given how things are right now).

  • With an all-black card design and smaller iconography, it’s probably not as easy to play as the original, but it sure does look nice.
    Not as easy to play? Maybe, if you didn’t know the rules to begin with. Knowing the rules, these cards are easy as to read. They’re also not all black, either. The wild and draw 4 ones are, as they were in the original. The others are all solid colours, as you can see in the pictures in the article.

  • Dark card backs look cool are are completely shitty for longevity. Any minor scuffs and your deck is marked for life.

  • Yeah 100% edge bleed doesnt work for games like this where the colour of the card is important, as you see all the colours down the side of the deck. Unless they ink the sides after cutting, in which they’ll end up chipping to white over time anyway.

    It’s a huge problem I’m having with card designs at the moment, can’t use bleed to the edge because you dont want players to know what colour cards are coming up but adding white or black borders makes printer drift super obvious if they’re out by even 1mm :'(
