It's official. Mattel is releasing a freshly-designed version of its UNO card game. The new look is inspired by a concept that received a lot of traffic and likes on Instagram. The new version will be called UNO Minimalista, a name clearly influenced by a clean and simplistic design much like what we've grown accustomed to across iOS and Android apps. It's not entirely surprising that UNO is receiving a makeover as unique designs ranging from Minecraft to Jurassic World already exist.
What's different here is that this modern take arguably has more broad appeal than many of the other film and game-inspired editions. Continue reading to find more photos. UNO Minimalista is gorgeous We all have things in our life that could look or even function better if redesigned. Thanks to Warleson Oliveira, we will soon be able to check UNO off of our list. The new version is bright and lively with a minimal approach to every facet of the game.
While higher than some other versions, this does seem to be a very respectable price given the amount of attention it has received. 9to5Toys' Take I find it incredibly refreshing that Mattel has not only run with this idea, but also that it seems as though it will debut with an affordable price. While I have little to no interest in buying a unique version of UNO, this modern take is one that I will almost certainly purchase. In fact, this design makes me start to think about the possibility of other classic games receiving a similar makeover. If they do, you had better believe that once again I'll be happy to pay a reasonable amount to refresh the aging games in my closet. Do you feel the same way?

Mattel announced the launch of Uno Minimalista – giving the card game we all know and love (fine, some of you hate it) a new minimalist design. This is not the first time Mattel dropped a special edition deck of UNO – over the last few months alone we've seen a Braille version in collaboration with the National Federation of the Blind, an Artiste Series version featuring Basquiat artwork, and even a Nonpartisan deck that lacks all red and blue cards. The latest special edition of the well-known family card game is UNO Minimalista, and it was created by Brazilian designer Warleson Oliveira. The design gives the deck a minimalist treatment with black being the color of choice for the back and edges of the cards.
