# How to Shuffle UNO Cards?

How to shuffle UNO cards? This is a question that has puzzled many people, young and old. But now, after reading this blog post, you will be able to shuffle UNO cards like a pro!

There are different types of shuffles- the finesse shuffle, the riffle shuffle, and the overhand shuffle. In this blog post we will show you how to do each type of shuffle. We will also teach you when it is best to use which type of shuffle. Finally, we will answer the all-important question: how many times should you shuffle uno cards? So without further ado, let’s get started!

## What are the different types of shuffling?

### Finesses Shuffle

The finesse shuffle is the most common and widely used type of shuffle. It relies on one hand gripping a segment of cards, and sliding it back to the edge of the deck. The other hand takes another segment from the top of the deck, placing it at the back. The hands then exchange segments, the top segment is placed at the edge of the deck and the bottom segment at the front. This cycle is done repeatedly until the cards are randomized.

### Riffle Shuffle

The riffle shuffle is widely considered the most secure and reliable way of shuffling cards. It is performed by splitting the deck into two roughly equal segments, holding them at their ends with thumbs meeting at their backsides and fingers meeting at their front-sides. The cards are then interwoven as the thumbs release their ends and pull out cards from the opposite end, placing them at the end of the deck. This process is repeated until the cards are randomized.

### Overhand Shuffle

The overhand shuffle is also known as the Hindu shuffle. It is performed by holding a segment of cards in the dominant hand , allowing gravity to pull them down to the bottom of the deck. The segments are inserted between the cards in the upper half of the deck, placing them at the front. This process is repeated until the cards are randomized.

Before we answer this question, let’s go over some basic math. The standard 52 card deck contains 52 cards, with no jokers or extra cards. There are four suits (clubs, diamonds, hearts and spades) with thirteen cards of each. So if we add up all the number on each card, we get (5+2+3+4+A+0+9)+(5+2+3+4+A+1)+…= 719.

The closest whole number to 719 is 720: this is the total number of permutations (ways in which we can shuffle the deck so that it does not look familiar) with no repeats. Since the standard 52 card deck has no jokers, we can conclude that there are 720 different ways to shuffle a standard 52 card deck.

## Finesses Shuffling UNO cards Step By Step

Step 1: Pinch the deck in your dominant hand with your thumb at the back facing you and fingers on the front.

Step 2: Allow gravity to pull the cards down until they are separated from each other.

Step 3: Make sure your thumb is on top of the deck to avoid exposing the cards.

Step 4: Slide your thumb along the back of the deck, allowing it to separate from the rest of your hand.

Step 5: Repeat steps 1-4.

## Riffle Shuffling UNO Cards Step By Step

Step 1: Start with the deck face-down in front of you. Separate the deck into two even halves and fan them out so that they’re facing you.

Step 2: Lift the right half of the deck and push it slightly forward with your index finger.

Step 3: Lift the left half of the deck up slightly with your thumb, while keeping it flush to the right half.

Step 4: Continue fanning out both halves of the deck as you pull your thumb forward to release the left half.

Step 5: Repeat steps 1-4, alternating which side of the deck you lift up first.

## Overhand Shuffling UNO Cards Step By Step

Step 1: Place your thumb underneath the deck from the side and pull out a small packet of cards. Keep this packet between your thumb and index finger.

Step 2: Move your thumb forward and allow gravity to pull the packet down into the lower half of the deck.

Step 3: Add the next packet by placing your index finger on top of it and pushing it halfway into the lower half.

Step 4: Insert your middle finger in front of this packet and push it in completely.

Step 5: Repeat steps 2-4 until the deck is randomized.

For a standard 52 card deck with 54 cards, the answer is 526 because there are five extra cards. For a standard 52 card deck with no jokers and an additional joker, the answer is still 720.
