Yep, but that would make it a SC-only game... :(

Well, after all these years of homebrewing maybe it's time to see one.

I was also thinking about how much RAM it would take to do a 2600 version of UNO and I really think it's impossible to do without the SC, or at least a Superchip. There are simply too many cards in the deck.

But UNO was my favorite card game as a kid and it would be nice to do a 4-player Uno on the 2600 with paddles, and the visual kernel wouldn't need to be too fancy so it's the kind of thing someone might be able to do since it's mostly inter-frame game logic.
