Giannis Antetokounmpo and Nike have teamed up with Uno for a fun new collection in celebration of the beloved game’s 50th anniversary.

The collaboration features a line of shoes and apparel as well as a custom Uno card deck. The special Giannis-branded deck incorporated a new rule in which players can “force a turnover” to steal an extra discarded card. Fans will be able to cop the deck through Mattel Creations and NTWRK on Nov. 11.
