    Games aren’t political — even the ones that involve storming the White House — but according to the maker of Uno, colors definitely are. So, to ensure that everyone in your family can reach across party lines to screw someone over with a Wild Draw Four card, Mattel has released a new, supposedly more politically neutral version of the card game, called Uno Nonpartisan.

    The new version’s alteration in its bid for apolitical acceptance is the change from the traditional red and blue cards to purple and orange cards. This move away from the clearly politicized colors of red and blue should help keep families from getting too political around the holidays — saying “holidays” here is definitely political.

    How the color green continues to make the cut in the nonpartisan version we have no idea at all. After all, there is a Green Party, the only party with its color right there in the name, there’s the extremely partisan Green New Deal, and even the topic of literal Green Cards, which has frequently become a topic for discussion considering the current administration’s restrictive policies on both immigration and Green Card access.

    I hope so too.. since there are literally parties that are orange, yellow, green, purple... etc...

    anyone claiming to associate a colour to politics in a card game needs to stop breathing our air.
