I know its a older game  but are there still people playing it online?

It's the most popular arcade game ever.

I never really knew why this game lured so many people into playing it... Its uno ffs :P

I know people are going to flame me for this one, a few of my mates yell at me every time i give them shit because of it.

There are still plenty of people playing it. I'm not going to say that they are all the kind of people you would want to play with over Live, but it has a solid community.

I used to play this every night for a few hours as a warm down after a few rounds of Gears of War and some of the banter that went on in there was some of the best i've heard on LIVE anywhere.

I use to play this game all the time. It was like the first game with xbox live camera capabilites.

It is a pretty fun game and it came with my vision camera. :-)

Are you sure? What about Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved?

From my experiences with it, you might have a bit of trouble finding matches in less popular times, but in peak times you'll have no problem.

Uno is on top of the Live Activity list almost every week, and has been since I've known about the list (in my memory, anyway). People like myself enjoy it because you don't even have to play, to play XD. I just sit there chilling with a group of friends, some people do funny shit with their cameras, etc. Nice hangout game.

I don't really play it that much anymore, I've gotten into the actual card game. :P

Get dose its a really great XBLA game. It just came out though and 1 billion people tried to dl it at once, so they had no choice but to remove the game for now. Try tomorrow.

I never got into it because it's purely a game of luck. No skill is involved other than deciding to use a wild or not.

Always. Purely because of the camera. :D

I think you can play against the computer if no one is around to play it.

Yes. There is offline play, but it's always more fun to play with others...as long as they follow the rules and don't bring any balls into this game.
