Based on the classic card game, "UNO" for the iPhone is best played with friends; for this reason, the application offers three multiplayer modes: multiplayer using one device, an online mode with gamers from all over the world and a wireless mode you can play with local friends who also own the game on their devices. Whether hosting or joining a game, a 3G, 4G or Wi-Fi connect is required. To play a wireless game of "UNO," one player must first create the room, or host, and then other players may join.

Hosting a Wireless Game

Step 1

Launch "UNO."

Step 2

Tap "Multiplayer."

Step 3

Tap "Local Multiplayer."

Step 4

Tap "Create Room."

Step 5

Choose either "4 Players" or "6 Players."

Tap "Start" after all players enter the room to begin the game.

Joining a Wireless Game

Step 1

Tap "Multiplayer" on the "UNO" main menu.

Step 2

Tap "Local Multiplayer."

Step 3

Tap "Join Room."

Step 4

Tap either "4 Players" or "6 Players." You must select the same number of players that the host did, otherwise his game will not appear in the room list.

Tap the host's game from the room list and wait for the host to begin the game.
