Cheap and Free Kindle Fire Apps for 1/19

This beloved game has been around for a long, long time, but now you can take the fun of Uno and play it on your Fire! The bonus of this is that you don't have to handle ALL of those cards, making it easy to play the game absolutely anywhere. Note that a lot of the poor reviews were for a previous version, but this works great with the Fire. Enjoy and get it now for just 99 cents!

Name: UNO (Kindle Fire Edition)
Rating: 3.1 stars over 106 reviews
Price: 0.99
Description: Admit it. You are obsessed with Uno. You often wake up in the middle of the night yelling "Uno!" You chuckle with evil glee every time you hand someone a Draw Four Wild Card. Now you no longer have to carry around a deck of Uno cards with you everywhere. Gameloft has brought this classic family card game to your Android device, in all its colorful, turn-reversing glory.

For the uninitiated, Uno resembles the card game Crazy 8s, but Uno is far crazier than its inspiration. There are always four players in a single match. The deck has four colors: Red, Blue, Green, and Yellow; and the cards are numbered from 0 to 9. You drop a card from your hand into the discard pile to match either the color or the number laid by the previous player. The first person to drop all his cards is the winner. But within the deck are special cards that add an element of surprise to the game: Wild Card, Reverse, Skip, Draw Two Cards, and the dreaded Draw Four Wild Card. These special cards make Uno wildly unpredictable. Just as someone thinks they're about to win the game, the momentum can suddenly swing against them. And you must exclaim "Uno!" when you're down to one card, or you have to draw two cards!
