The company behind UNO are on the hunt for a 'chief player' offering a four-figure sum per week.
All those hours spent arguing with your family and friends about the rules may now be worth it, because Mattel - the toy company behind the popular card game - has revealed a new job position has opened up which requires someone with a passion for UNO.
The job - titled 'Chief UNO Player' - involves a new version of the game and if that wasn't exciting enough to tempt you to apply, the role also comes with a pretty tasty pay rate.
Prepare to roll up your sleeves and challenge more than just your family and friends to a game.
The 'Chief UNO Player' is being hired to test out Mattel's newest version of the game - UNO Quatro family.
According to the toy company's website, the game is 'a classic four-in-a-row challenge' but 'with a twist'.
The job entails challenging strangers to play the game, 'creating and starring in social content for various UNO games' to help 'get the word out'.
Oh, and having 'a great time in sunny New York City (NYC)' where the role is based.
If you get the job, you'll be required to work in NYC for four hours a day (2:00pm-6:00pm ET), four days a week for four consecutive weeks starting from 13 September.
Mattel's website states anyone considering applying should be 'comfortable with interviews and appearances'.
"Be friendly and willing to ask strangers to play the game. Be able to teach strangers how to play the game in an engaging way," the job description continues. "Must be able to sit for long periods, lift and carry 50 lbs., and set up playing tables & tents on location."
You'll also have to work exclusively for UNO during the 'activation period' and not partner with any other games until the end of the year.
But sorry guys, it turns out you've got to be a permanent citizen in the US to apply for the job.
Mattel questions: "We’re looking for someone who’s just as passionate about throwing down a Draw Four as they are engaging strangers in a game.
"Someone who knows how to play a reverse and likes to get WILD (in a nice-ish way). Is that you?"
Well, for a whopping £3,482 ($4,444) per week for a total of four weeks, I think it's fair to say even if we have to dust off our UNO cards and start losing a few friends by challenging them to get some practice in, it would definitely be worth it.
£3,482 a week amounts to a staggering £13,926 ($17,776) by the end of four weeks - so where do we sign up?
Well, to apply for the role, you have to answer just four questions.
"What's your best memory of playing UNO? What's your best Reverse Card moment? Why shouldn't you get skipped as the Chief UNO player? What's your favourite version of UNO?"
All you have to do is answer these questions in a video and stitch it together with UNO's clip.
Ray Adler, Mattel's global head of games, said in a statement, as per CNBC: "We’re constantly looking to create new ways for fans to engage with UNO.
"We’re thrilled to offer a position to the ultimate UNO player to help introduce our brand-new game."
