The tournament, called the “40 Days of UNO Tournament,” will begin on August 15. You can compete with players from around the world for the title of “UNO World Champion.” The tournament will last a whopping 40 days and run on the UNO Facebook Page, which at the time of this writing has over 3.5 million fans — that’s a lot of competition!
The competition is run in 3 stages and you will be able to earn points by participating in the different stages. The more games you play, the more points you receive. If you’re one of the top players, you’ll be able to move onto the next round. During the tournament you’ll be able to track your progress by viewing 3 leaderboards — one for your country, one for your friends and one for all global players — leading up to the last round on Sept 24, where the top 4 users will compete for the championship title.
In addition to the tournament, which is open to users worldwide, UNO is launching a sweepstakes called the “UNO Play, Enter, Win Sweepstakes.” The game makers are giving away over $40,000 in the form of hundreds of prizes. Unfortunately, the sweepstakes is only open to U.S. residents.
