Now that Overwatch’s new Workshop mode is available for all players on live servers, players have let their imagination take over. One user even found a way to recreate the popular card game UNO in Overwatch.

This comes courtesy of reddit user Ochotonida, who threw the Overwatch rule book out the window to create this masterpiece. They have also recreated classic games like Pong and Snake in the past.

The aim of UNO is to get rid of all the cards in your hand. Each player starts with seven, and on each turn, they must play a card matching the colour or number of the top card on the pile. If they can’t, they draw a new card from the deck. The cards come in four colours, with numbers between one and nine. There are also a number of action cards.

Ochotonida made the card game fully compatible with Overwatch through some genius innovation. In this version, there is a circle (or “table”) that the players stand and play the game at. In the middle of the circle, the number and colour of the card at the top of the pile is displayed. There is also a spotlight which shines on each player during their turn.

In the most recent update to this game mode, you can now aim at another player to see how many cards they have left, and if a player only has one card left, they will catch on fire. Players who are skipped become frozen.

Here are the controls:

  • Primary fire and secondary fire are used to change your currently selected card.
  • Jump is used to play your currently selected card when it is your turn.
  • Crouch is used to pass your turn to the next player without playing a card, taking a card (or multiple when a +2/+4) has been played.
  • Ability two is used to cycle the color of white cards (+4 and "pick" cards).

If you want to try out this Workshop creation, the code you will need is WMVZC.
