It has to be UNO! The multicolored, fast paced card game works perfectly whether the dice are in your hands or on your screen. It’s fast, fun and enthralling. You will find you shout out ‘UNO’ even if you’re playing on your own, and quickly pressing ‘play again’. You can play against the computer in 2s, 3s or 4s or against a friend who is also playing online. Time flies when you play and it is one of the most played games in the last one hundred years, so why not give it a go now? The game was originally developed in 1971 by a card loving barber in Reading, Ohio. He started to develop it with his son, and soon his family and friends couldn’t get enough of it. He decided to get five thousand copies of the game made, and to buy it you had to go to his barbershop. Soon other local businesses began to sell it too and it wasn’t long until UNO as we know it was being played all across the world.

Is Dungeon & Dragons a board game?

We’ve decided that tabletop games like Dungeons & Dragons or Warhammer 40,000 aren’t board games in this sense – they’re more like wargames and RPGs, and so they have their own categories. Why not check those out on our Gamepix site, alongside racing, arcade and sports games?
