"A card game similar to crazy eights, played with specially printed cards.". I've played this game, and think this is a trademark name for a game, like Dungeons & Dragons or Monopoly. Can someone explain to me what is crazy eights? --Volants 08:02, 9 July 2010 (UTC)
- Delete as brand name. I have added an entry for crazy eights: it's rather like Uno, but played with standard cards (so you have to match rank or suit rather than rank or colour). Equinox ◑ 13:29, 9 July 2010 (UTC)
- So basically if the reference has a ® or mentions Mattel, it's out? I think I can still reference it from Google Books.--Prosfilaes 13:57, 10 July 2010 (UTC)
- Keep; I've added three citations to the citation page, including one from a refereed journal, that use Uno without mentioning the company or treating it as a trademarked name.--Prosfilaes 14:35, 10 July 2010 (UTC)
- Keep. I don't know what the rule for trademarks are, but it seems obvious that this is a word, and, as such, that it should be kept. Generally speaking, trademarks are words, but it might be a good thing to define stricter, attestation rules (anybody can create a trademark, it's not a reason to include it automatically). The number of independent attestations required should be larger, and should exclude the trademark owner as a source. Lmaltier 15:09, 10 July 2010 (UTC)
- The only place that's linked from Criteria for inclusion is as examples. In any case, what does that mean for the citations I just added?--Prosfilaes 13:02, 11 July 2010 (UTC)
- I don't think the second two (Kimberly, Bernhaupt) are ideal, but I couldn't find anything better myself. They might be okay if they require some knowledge of the way the card game is played. Likewise for the earlier (Coleman) quote I've added. In your first one (Jance), this is irrelevant. It barely matters what kind of game it is, so the text can be understood without a precise definition. That's probably true of the other (Williams) citation I added for illustrative purpose, indicative of the kind of game Uno is.
- This is definitely an RFV issue, but I won't be the one to close it. DAVilla 12:42, 20 July 2010 (UTC)
