Uno cards

Does anyone know a source with a good routine using an Uno deck? My nephew loves that game and I'd like to be able to do something cool for him.

I'm sure you are aware of the fact that an infinite number of card tricks can easily be adapted to Uno cards. Their one-way back design is also a nice feature.

Recently, I saw Pit Hartling and Thomas Fraps perform a fine version of the Sympathetic Cards with Uno cards with a spectator via Zoom in their online show.

There was a Uno based Six Card Repeat effect in Magic Magazine. I can’t recall when but I believe it was in David Kaye’s column. The numbers corresponded to the counts in each repetition.

Check out Hugard's Encyclopedia of Card Tricks. Lots of good ideas there.

I think Fredrick is referencing "A Trick That Repeats On You" by Nick Brown which appears in the June 2007 issue of Magic Magazine. It can also be found in chapter 10 of Super Sized Silly by David Kaye.
Not the one who created the Potter Index.

Alex Zander has constructed an entire act using games and game pieces, including Uno cards. Saw him do a clever six card repeat recently during the IBM online convention.

Here's something to consider. I don't have it but I have some of Scott's other work and it's pretty good:

UNO-IT by Scott Creasey
From the blurb: "...you will find a number of real world routines using UNO cards. Available from most toy stores and regularly advertised on TV, if you perform any kind of mentalism, you will find them perfect as a substitute for playing cards or ESP cards"
