New Uno Deck Wants to Make Your Holidays ‘Politics-Free'

November 21, 2019

In order to keep the peace this holiday season, Uno wants to make your family gatherings a little less colorful.

Mattel has come out with a new edition of the popular game that replaces all of the red and blue cards in hopes to keep fighting over politics at bay, reported Market Watch.

Since the primary colors are typically associated with the Republican and Democratic parties, the new limited-edition Nonpartisan Uno deck features more neutral orange and blue cards instead.

“Whether you lean a little left or a little right, one thing we can all agree on is how much we love UNO®!,” Mattel said on its website.

“Without Red or Blue cards the focus can stay on the game. And remember to yell ‘UNO!’ before you reach across the aisle and play your last card!”

The updated version also includes a new Veto card, which allows a player to skip someone should they slip and bring up the impeachment hearings, the 2020 election or anything else remotely political. Good luck!

In addition, the game’s normal red packaging has also been traded out for the more bipartisan color purple.

While political discourse can be healthy, especially with people outside your social media feeds, it’s also important to be able to take a break and enjoy some family time, even if it is  with your awkward cousins.

“UNO created Nonpartisan for the moments in between political conversation, providing an opportunity to keep the focus on the fun, even when a family debate could arise,” said a spokesperson for the company. “The purpose is to bring fans together over the love of the game this Thanksgiving!”

Besides, you can always go back to screaming into your respective red and blue bubbles on Black Friday.

Uno Nonpartisan is available at Walmart for $5.
