Introduction:

Welcome to Uno and Friends, the latest Freemium game made by Gameloft. It is the first Uno game to hit the Windows Phone platform with live Multiplayer. If you are familiar with Uno or even if you’re not you should have no trouble completing this game, it might just take a while.

 

Preparation:

Each game takes 2 tokens to play. Winning a game nets you 2 tokens, losing nets you nothing. Each game depending on where you place, gains you points which are needed to level up. First Place nets you 80 points, Second Place nets you 30 points, Third Place nets you 20 points, and Fourth Place nets you 10 points. In addition, completing a Bonus Goal nets you 10 points, you get a level bonus, and if you use the 50% boost you get 50% more of all the points you earned for that match. If you have less than 10 tokens, you will get a Scratch Off ticket every hour to get more, ranging from 2-6 tokens. You can purchase tokens if you wish, but it is not necessary to complete the game it will just speed things up.

 

Multiplayer:

This game is entirely multiplayer based. The game will play just like any other UNO game, but with 3 live opponents. There are some connectivity issues where players get disconnected and just Time Out all their plays or the bot players take over. Occasionally you’ll get disconnected and lose your two tokens for that match. If you want to try boosting this game with other members you can use the Achievement Trading Thread to find others wanting to boost.

 

The game starts you out with 10 gold tokens. The first thing you should do is play a few games to familiarize yourself with how the game works and to add as many people as friends as you can. Remember to purchase the 50% Point Boost whenever you have enough silver tokens. You should get “Bonus Complete!” and maybe “Back-to-Back!” during this step.

 

Once you have a few friends, from the main menu go to Create Game then you can either invite five different people to the game or just invite the same person five times. This will get you “An Inviting Friend!” Once the achievement pops you can go back to the menu without actually having to play a game. Note: You must have at least two gold tokens to be able to enter the Create Game menu.

 

The final step is to keep working your way to level 100. At some point you’ll want to send five gifts to other players to get “Keep on Giving!” The rest of the achievements should come from playing naturally as you work your way to level 100.

Conclusion:

The achievements in this game aren’t hard by any means. It will just take a while to get to level 100 and obtain the full 200:gsicon:. Luckily this game is fun enough that you will want to keep playing it for a while.

When a player only has one card left and doesn't call Uno a yellow button that says, "Challenge Uno" will appear beside them. Press this to Challenge their uno this will force them to draw two cards. You have to be fast if the next player plays or they press uno the button will disappear.

Achieve Level 100 in UNO & Friends!

 

Reach level 100. It takes 102,000 points to reach level 100. This will be the last achievement you get in the game by far.

Some tips to make this go faster. Always use the 50% point boost when you have enough silver coins to do so. Related to this, you are going to want to try and finish in the top 1000 in the weekly challenge since the silver coins you will get as a reward should be enough to let you keep purchasing the 50% point boost for the following week. The weekly challenge ends on Friday nights. You are also going to want to add as many friends as possible. There is no limit to the amount of friends you can add and once you add someone as a friend they can send you tokens as gifts, which will allow you to play more often.

Once you have at least one friend, from the main screen tap Create Game and then just invite that person to the game five times. Then you can back out without actually playing the game and get your two gold coins back.

Simply win two games in a row. Since this game largely relies on luck there's no real sure way to do this, but just keep playing and it will come eventually.

 

Alternatively you can boost this with friends. Use the Achievement Trading Thread to find Friends.

Use 5 Boosts!

 

Boosts are the items you can purchase with silver coins before the game starts. Simply purchase and use 5 of these. The only Boost I would bother with is the 50% point boost to make getting to level 100 faster.

good guide... can i ask.... if i finish it all on W8 and then do it on WP8 will i get all chevos? like this but vice versa?

Thanks! I can't confirm that it would work the other way since I did it WP to W8, but I don't see why it wouldn't work that way since it seems to use the same servers for both. If you end up doing that let me know if it works and I'll add a note to the other guide.

Just a FYI, unlocking achievements does work both ways ;)

 

Thanks for letting me know. I was pretty sure it would, since it seems like both games use the same servers, but I wanted to make sure before I added it into the guide.

 

 

Here's a question that I can't answer myself right now, but maybe it will factor into your guide. If you have both the WP8 and W8 versions, can you alternate between the two to get free tokens?

 

Looks like you can only scratch for free tokens every 45 minutes or so, but is that timer exclusive to each platform?

 

I don't believe that the timer is exclusive to each platform given that nothing else seems to be.
