Remember the good old days when there was no TV, no social media and no phones? The good old days when you had to talk to your friends and family or play card games with each other as a way of whiling away the hours?

You have to admit that nothing beat an evening of UNO and cups of tea in front of the fire.

But the bad news is, there's a pretty good chance you've been playing the card game wrong your whole life.

You know that dreamy Draw 4 card, that basically makes you invincible? Well, apparently you can't just use it whenever you're feeling spiteful – you have to have absolutely no other options.

LaToya McCaskill Stallings shared a status on Facebook expressing her shock at finding out this ridiculous rule.

"So it's taken me 35 years on this earth to realise that I've been playing Uno wrong since I was a kid," she wrote.

"Did y'all know that you can only play the Draw 4 card IF you have NO other cards that can be played??!

"AND if you suspect that someone has illegally played this card, they have to show you their hand. AND if they in fact played the card illegally they must draw four, but If not, the person who challenged the play must draw six?"

Right, go call your friends, because you're probably owed about a thousand UNO rematches.
