* '''''UNO Triple Play''''': There are three discard piles. However, players may only play on piles that the unit lights up. The discard pile Discard piles have a overload limit, and playing on a discard pile that "overloads" incurs a one to four card penalty, decided by the unit. In a twist, playing a Wild Card ''does not'' let you choose the color that continues play; rather, the next player chooses it by playing any card onto it. Wild Clears allow the user to reset the "overload" limit and Wild Give Aways, if played on an overloaded discard pile, allows the user to give their cards they would otherwise get to other players.
