Santana is the first-ever chief UNO player and starts the job Wednesday. She will introduce players in New York City to the new UNO Quatro game and play against them over a four-week period, UNO announced Wednesday.
The Austinite is a recent graduate of Texas State University with a UNO card collection of more than 70 set extensions, according to a release.
