ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — When you think of potential triggers for family drama over the holidays – a friendly card game probably doesn’t make your top ten.
‘UNO’ has helped generations of people pass the time while the turkey turns golden-brown (at least before the dawn of the device age, anyway), but Mattel seems to think the classic version of its timeless card game may be just a bit too political.
UNO is going ‘nonpartisan.’
Basically, it’s all about Republican red, Democrat blue – and a tongue-in-cheek response to the state of current American politics.
‘UNO Nonpartisan’ elects orange and purple cards to replace those two incumbent colors, and introduces a ‘VETO’ card – just in case a not-so-woke uncle or an easily-triggered cousin tries to turn family time into a conversational cage match. Even the package itself appears to be a proverbial olive branch. It’s purple – a peaceful mix of red and blue.
BUT, this version is a limited-edition, so we'll be back to politics as usual before you know it.
