Monopoly Bid is designed to be easy to learn and quick to play. It’s a game of chance, luck, and strategy as players bid in blind auction, pay with money cards, steal properties with action cards, and change their luck with wild cards.

In UNO All Wild, just as the name suggests, every card is wild! Play is fast, with no matching colors or numbers required like in classic UNO. It’s also more surprising with the action cards in the deck — Wild Reverse, Wild Skip and Skip 2, Wild Draw 2 and 4, Wild Forced Swap, and Wild Targeted Draw 2.
