Karen ⊰✿ | 2944 comments For those return players, did you notice a slight change in the rules from previous years?
*hint* the change is a bit wild ... ;)

I'm just worried I'd let the team down or something! :O
How many books would be needed from each person?

Don't worry about letting your team down, Uno is about having fun, we try to make the teams as even as possible in terms of books everyone reads, so read what you can and when you can :)
I don't know that we have a specific lower limit, but you should read at least 1 book each month.


message 20: by DoodlePanda (new)

DoodlePanda | 244 comments Oh 1 book per month I can do easily! :D

I think I'm gonna try it then!

lol Catie, I too have way too many books on my TBR shelf!


message 31: by Eldarwen (new)

Eldarwen | 3578 comments Uno is a very easy and fun team challenge to start with on your way into more team challenges. It was my first one as well when it was first set up. And I've played every round since :-)


message 32: by Catie (new)

Catie Currie | 133 comments Haha yeah, I don't think anyone could be on GR for a significant amount of time without acquiring a massive amount of TBR books :P


message 33: by Veronica (new)

Veronica (veraj121) I am so excited the Uno Challenge is starting. I am like a kid in a candy store right now... YAY!!!


message 34: by Kate S (new)

Kate S Hi, I'm Kate.

I enjoy doing team challenges and participate in several each year.
This will be my second UNO challenge and I am looking forward to the fun (and a bit of the craziness that comes with it)!
I have a hard time nailing down my favorite genre. I think it changes pretty regularly. At the moment, I am most enjoying general non-fiction and literary fiction. But at other times, I like horror, mystery, suspense, science fiction, classics, historical fiction and others. I tend to shy away from romance and paranormal fiction, but even these I do enjoy from time to time.
I do not have any specific titles I am looking forward to in 2018. I am excited to start reading some of the many titles I picked up at my winter library book sale.


message 35: by Tefek (new)

Tefek | 60 comments Hi

I haven't played uno before but I'm interested in playing for the first time in this way including books!
Do you think it will be confusing for me, or I can do it?


message 36: by Laura (new)

Laura Tefek, you can do it! It's a great fun challenge! Sign up, you won't regret it.


Lisa - (Aussie Girl) | 1181 comments Definitely Tefek. It's a fun challenge and your team mates will help you if you have any questions.


message 38: by Annalisa (new)

Annalisa | 1024 comments Hi everyone,
I loved UNO last year. I can't wait. I've been told I read all books with words. My current preferences are historical romance, fantasy, and science fiction.

message 42: by Andrea (new)

Andrea (ajareads) | 115 comments Last year I almost missed it , I wasn't about to do that again this year :) this is the most fun reading challenge !! <3 I am so psyched to get going, I always meet such amazing people :D


message 43: by Karen ⊰✿, Avaricious Reader (new)

Karen ⊰✿ | 2944 comments So nice to see so many familiar faces, and welcome to all the new ones!

I was trying to think of a book for 2018 I am waiting for, as I am so far behind most books I was waiting for in a series were published last year and I haven't read yet :o
But there is one in 2018 - The Prisoner in the Castle - which is a series that unexpectedly grew on me and the last book ended on a bit of a cliffhanger

This is our fourth year of UNO. I put it together in 2015 and I can't even remember where the idea came from now. I must have been playing the card game one weekend ;)


message 44: by Romina (new)

Romina (romii) | 260 comments Aaaah I am so excited to do this again! Loved participating last year!
I havent been reading much or on goodreads lately so Im hoping this motivates me to read more and be more active! I cant wait :D

I had a great team last year, had some great conversations and a really fun time during the challenge so Im hoping for a repeat of that :D


Rachael (The Bookish Ray) (thebookishray) | 393 comments Hi! This is all so exciting. It'll be my first UNO and I have no idea what to expect but it looks like such a fun challenge :)
