It’s a hard truth, but UNO has officially confirmed that +4 or +2 cards cannot be stacked — at all.
The card game company issued a post on Twitter yesterday confirming that the move has in fact been illegal all along and that the company knows you’ve been trying to pull it off sneakily. Apparently, if a player puts down a +4 card, the next player must simply draw four cards and skip their turn. No stacking allowed.
Of course, anyone who has ever played a very competitive game of UNO with friends and family will know that stacking +4 and +2 cards is a commonly used strategy, so it was to no surprise that the Internet didn’t take the official clarification well. Many users went online to comment and tweet about it, resulting in some pretty hilarious tweets. Check out the internet’s reactions below in a list of tweets we’ve compiled.

I love how folks were arguing with Uno about how to play Uno. A game they created.
