A modern twist on the classic game, UNO Roboto is a fun and interactive card game that everyone aged 7 years and up can enjoy. Following the same rules of classic UNO, two to six players attempt to get rid of all of their cards but with one catch: an unpredictable interactive robot mixes up the game every chance he gets. The robot calls out random rules and funny phrases that change the way you play. You never know what UNO Roboto will say next, but you'll still race to say, "UNO!"

Interactive Game with a Simple Objective

UNO Roboto comes with 108 game cards and an interactive robot figure that serves as the dealer. The objective is simple: try to get rid of your cards as quickly as possible to win the game.
Each player is dealt seven cards from the deck varying in color, number, and symbol. UNO Roboto will call out the name of a player to go first. Players must try to match a card from their existing pile with the card on top of the discard pile. If they don't have a match, they have to take an additional card from the draw pile. Players whittle down their cards, and the first player with only one card left must shout "UNO" to win the game.
Customizable Game Play Adds a Twist
If you've ever played UNO, or even if you haven't, playing UNO Roboto is simple. Prior to beginning the game, players record their name into the robot's microphone for personalized play. Players can also record special house rules, such as "Recite the pledge of allegiance," or "Do the chicken dance" for the robot to call out randomly during the game. Make up your own house rule or choose one from the house rule cards.
Unlike classic UNO, the robot will speak surprise commands at random, challenging players by name to perform certain tasks. The robot may tell you to trade your cards with another player, or instruct everyone to raise an arm, with the last person to do it forced to draw two cards.
Fun, Ready-to-Play Game
This interactive card game comes with everything you will need to play. Three AA batteries come ready to power the robot, and no other setup is required. Your group of two to six players can get right down to the fun--draw, discard, and race against each other to rid yourself of cards and complete the robot's commands.
Playing UNO Roboto is fun. While the concept of an interactive robot may initially seem unnecessary for such an easy to play game, its presence adds unpredictable excitement. Players will appreciate the customizable nature and crazy challenges offered. The robot is small enough to carry for on-the-go play too.
What's in the Box

As a kid I loved playing UNO with my sister and cousins and of course my beloved granny ( may she rest in peace). And over the years UNO has evolved like no other game in my eyes.  Coming out with several new games for all ages.  Their latest rendition featuring UNO is UNO Roboto.  
Now I was super excited to get to play this game.  I mean it is UNO with a cute robot, what is not to love. The other great thing is the fact that my kids will enjoy this game like I used to the original game.  I am all for playing an original game with my kiddos.  You get to record your own name so the Robot can call commands to you.  My kids love personalized songs, games, books and such so this feature will make the game even better.  I am sure it might be a little challenging for my youngest daughter since she is not even 5 yet but we are going to give it a try.  She knows her numbers and colors so I think she should be okay.  
One other nice thing about the game is that it comes with everything you need including batteries so you can take it out the box and play right then. Also the Robot is not super heavy or bulky so you could easily take the game on vacations or family get togethers. I am saving the game to be opened by the kids on Christmas morning!
The game is available now where board games are sold and online at for $ 32.75.  So go out and get a classic game with a new futuristic spin on it.  Your family is sure to have a blast playing it.
