It won't happen for a number of reasons, one of them being Uno is owned by Mattel and we don't have the rights.

Like we mentioned in the release notes, we wanted to make something that would be quick to play, allow players to enter the game at any point, dynamically changing from 2 to 5. And something mechanically simple, so not requiring complex UI or networking to implement and allowing us to build AI for easily. Hope that makes sense!

While we might have been able to build some sort of card game, going with dice ended up being the simpler option.

Hmm. That's a bummer. I did notice IRC bots have Uno games like https://github.com/ruby-rbot/rbot/blob/ ... mes/uno.rb. I guess it is because they're free and open source unlike Pulsar that is a commercial game. :(
