Full Answer

The person who first rids herself of all cards is said to have won the hand. The face value of each card is awarded for each card one-through-nine remaining in the opponents' hands. For example, if opponents' have a three card, a four card and two five cards, the winner of the hand is awarded 17 points.

For a "Draw 2," "Reverse" or "Skip" card, the winner of the hand is given 20 points. For example, if opponents are left with two "Draw 2" cards and a "Reverse" card, the winner of the hand receives 60 points. If this were in addition to the cards mentioned before, she would be awarded 67 points.

Finally, for "Wild" or "Wild 4" cards, the winner of the hand is given 50 points. For example, if opponents were left with one of each type, the winner of the hand would receive 100 points. If added to the running total, it would equal 167 points. If the player has not reached 500 points, another hand is dealt. This process is continued until one player accumulates 500 points. At that point, the player is declared the winner of the game.
