Bug Description

When nothing else can be played, taking a card is not mandatory. You can just click on the Pass button and it's to the next player to play.

This does not respect the original Uno rules.

The fix resolves the bug in two ways:
- The UI only enables the button when necessary.
- The referee can now check if a player is authorized to draw a card.

Nice fix. But there still remains somethin, I don't know if we have to track it down through another bug report or not.

Now, if the previous player payed a +2 card, you are forced to draw cards (as before), but once you've drawn them, you still have the ability to play, whereas you should pass (previous behaviour).

What do you think?

Yes I've seen the problem.

The patch removes auto-passing previously achieved by the referee when drawing on +2 or +4. I think this is a better behaviour, which allows the player to calm down the game, check his new cards and so on.

I think the problem you describe should be the subject of a new bug: the referee does not check the move enough.
