Skip-Bo is playing solitaire with Uno's cards in Hyderabad. It's a classic Mattel game that's now available as a video game (like Uno). There are no skips, reverses, or draws in this version of Uno because the cards are numbered up to a 12. Skip-Bo cards can be used in place of any other cards in the deck, just like the traditional joker.
When it comes to solving numerically arranged decks, Skip-Bo has a twist: Most levels require you to accomplish something else on top of that. While new cards are given to you from a different pile on the right at every turn, you must clear the draw cards on your left as quickly as possible before other players can (almost like Uno). While balancing the cards from the two piles, the goal is to finish the left pile first. Solitaire-like puzzles are also available in the Skip-Bo mode of the game.
The fact that the game features both classic and puzzle modes is a welcome addition. You play classic mode in multiplayer and puzzle mode to clear levels in the single-player mode. Coins can be used to enter new multiplayer games or levels as you progress through the game. Despite this, there is a catch: if you fail to clear a level or game, you must pay the cost to try again. If you win or clear the level in the shortest amount of time, the more coins you get. While playing Skip-Bo, efficiency and strategy are your best bets.
A new rule is introduced at every turn, making the game's levels more difficult and the multiplayer even more difficult if the opponents are strategic. When you end a turn in Skip-Bo, your opponents will know how to win themselves as well as how to keep you from winning, because you must reveal a card to do so. There is plenty of room for strategizing here, as the number of cards remaining in the pile on the left for any player is displayed to other players.
Skip-Bo is a blast to play because of how fast it moves and how many different ways you can play it. Nevertheless, it could use more features or in-game currency. A good place to start is with themed decks and avatars. Another thing that could've made this game a hit from the get-go would have been to include the ability to play with friends from the start.
If you're a fan of solitaire and cards, especially Spider Solitaire and Klondike, give it a shot. You won't be dissatisfied with this.
