The makers of the beloved card game have come out of the woodwork and claimed that most people have been breaking a fundamental rule when playing - that you're not allowed to stack a draw two card on top of a draw four card and force the next player to pick up six - and Twitter couldn't quite cope.

The official Uno account wrote: "If someone puts down a +4 card, you must draw 4 and your turn is skipped. You can’t put down a +2 to make the next person Draw 6. We know you’ve tried it. #UNO".

And Twitter exploded with the revelation.

One replied: "You don’t know how to play the game right", another: "F*** what Official Uno Account says, stacking +2's fine and stacking +4s is fine.", and many attempted to argue with Uno about how to play their own game.

However, some were shocked that many *weren't* playing the game the correct way, with one writing: "y'all have really been STACKING draw cards in uno?!?!?!?!??!!??!!??!".
