To mark the 40th anniversery of the venerable party game, Mattel is selling a retro styled deck for $1, on 1/11/11. Good hunting to you all.

Target had that on ad last week.

My store accidentally put them all out over Christmas.

It's great fun explaining that to customers.

But seriously good luck finding it if you want it, ours didn't last a day on ad.

Yeah, please say where! That would be quite cool.

According to the release it's supposed to be everywhere.

the local Toys'R'us gave me blank stares when I mentioned this. the local Target had plenty. I've snagged an extra deck for anyone who is unable to find one.

See it here (http://www.toymania.com/news/messages/12591.shtml).

As the article states, the Skip, Wild, and Reverse cards are marked with letters as in the original decks, not the symbols that later replaced them. They also have a slight yellowing to simulate age.

I haven't played Uno in probably 25 years. I actually had no idea it ever looked any different than this.

I still remember seeing it pop up in an episode of His & Her Circumstances. I loved that scene, my family would play like that.

So...
No takers on the extra deck?

Man, I missed this event, but I don't know if I have $1 and shipping for an Uno deck...

Edit: Uh, not that I'm trying to obliquely beg a free Uno deck from Daikaiju. I just don't like paying more shipping on an item than the item itself cost.

I did too (Yukino's family in Kare Kano was one of the best things about the series.) My family still plays like that -- we like to gang up on my father.

Sorry, a friend at work claimed it when no one asked here. If I see one though, I'll grab it for you.
