Well, you've done it again. Not only did you review this in a few hours, you also somehow managed to make something that should be totally boring to read about interesting. Bahaha. I am highly amused.

You even managed to teach me a few new rules! =/ I always played this game with real (and real-life) people, which is why I find an online version hilarious (if not necessarily surprising), and since we've always played a specific way, there are a few things that we never applied. The scoring system for one thing. I didn't know you could tally points like that. We usually just played until somebody won then started over. I also didn't know about the challenge rule, either. That'd certainly make things more interesting in an actual game.

Anyway, yeah. Gotta say, I'm impressed. It's like your darts reviews which should, by all circumstances, be dry and boring somehow aren't. LOL XD I think you just cured my headache. Though I don't want to get too hopeful yet. There's always something out there to spite me! =x

I have 2 pedantic corrections to a very enjoyable review, too!

a) you mention 1 million downloads
b) later you mention playing against #2846757 in the world

Also "drown out" should be "drowned out."

Big picture though--it's great to see evidence of a simple concept executed well. Be it a praise review or the game it's praising.

Thanks, WQ. Your catches are fixed. And stop playing Uno wrong!

Since you're 1/3 of the swine who made me review the game, I hate you it's only right you should have to suffer through the review. I guess it's okay that you enjoyed it, though I'm a little bitter about that.

I'm glad it's readable, anyway.

Schultz -- You FOOLISH FOOL! The game was the first to hit the million mark but has since been downloaded several times over that!
(Thanks for the other catch!)


For us. For them. For you.

Haha. Oh, hush. I know you're secretly appreciative of us making you review this game because now you have the letter U taken care of for the alpha marathon thing. ^_^
