Star Trek Uno

This week's featured item is a Star Trek version of a classic:

This was one of my favorite games growing up, and the Star Trek edition is just as much fun, but has a couple of added features: According to the back of the tin, when you get down to your last card, instead of merely saying "Uno!" you have to say "Uno, I'm a Doctor!" My favorite part of the game, however, is the "Beam Up" card, which allows you to "beam out" of trouble by cancelling out draw-two or draw-four cards.
  • If you're not familiar with Uno, here's a link to the official rules (for regular Uno).

Here is the tin out of the box.

This is the back of the tin, with an explanation
of the "Uno, I'm a Doctor!" rule.

A sampling of the cards. I wish they'd picked
a better photo of McCoy, but since there's a rule
based on one of his lines, I guess I shouldn't complain.

This card is my favorite feature of the game:
If a "draw two" or "draw four" card is played
against you, you can use this card to "beam
out" of trouble.

Star Trek Uno can be found on

Next week on Zach Trek: On Tuesday, check in for a short but well-done video related to piloting spacecraft. On Thursday check in for a recurring alien presence.
