Dos is the card game that follows UNO. The rules for this game will be offered below.
To enjoy this game, you will need the following:
-players from 7 years old
-number of players between 2 and 4
-108 cards distributed as follows: 24 blue cards, 24 green cards, 24 red cards, 24 yellow cards and 12 bonus cards (joker 2 and super joker cards)
The dealer deals 7 cards to each player
The remaining cards will be placed in the middle of the table and will be used as a draw deck
Reserve a place next to the deck for the discard pile
Goal of the game
Dos’ goal is to get rid of all his cards first.
Flow of the game
Turn over at least two cards from the deck and place them face up in the middle of the table and will be used as a draw pile
Reserve a space next to the deck for the discard pile
Black: The two cards turned over
Green: The deck
Red:The discard pile
- The player who starts the game must place one or two cards on one of the two cards turned over in the middle of the table
- To place a card, it must be of the same value as the card you wish to cover
- To place two cards, the sum of the two cards must be equal to the value of the card you want to cover
Note: it is possible to put cards on both visible cards on the table if your game allows it
Example: The visible cards on the table are 7 and 9. A player can put one or two cards on the 7 as well as on the 9
- When a player has finished placing one or two cards on one of the two face-up cards on the table, he must remove them (the card(s) he placed + the covered card) and place them in the discard pile face-up
- If the player has covered only one card, he must draw another card from the deck and place it face up in place of the one he has removed
- If the player has covered both cards, he must draw two cards from the deck and place them face up in place of the two cards he has removed
Be careful! There must always be at least two cards face up on the table before the next player starts his turn.
The next player in turn places one or two cards from his deck, removes them when he is finished, places them in the discard pile and draws again to form the two face-up cards on the table
The next player also does the same and so on until one player manages to get rid of all his cards
In Dos, the association of value takes precedence over the association of colors as in Uno
When a player cannot play, he must draw a card and can play it immediately if the card allows it
When a player draws a card and it still cannot be played, he/she must put it in his her deck and pass the turn to the next player
Bonus card combinations
It is possible to get bonuses on the back when you cover a visible card on the table with one or more cards of the same color.
- Simple Bonus
When you have placed a card of the same value and color on top of one of the face-up cards on the table, you place a card from your deck face-up on the table + the two cards from the deck placed on the table. You just have to choose a card from your deck and place it in the middle of the table (after discarding the cards you have played).
- Double Bonus
When you have laid down two cards (the sum of which is equal to the value of the card you wish to cover) and they are the same color as the covered card, you lay down one card from your deck face up on the table + the two cards from the deck laid down on the table. You just have to choose a card from your deck and place it in the middle of the table and the other players will have to draw one card each.
Joker card 2
Joker 2 cards allow you to play a card of value 2 in the suit of your choice when you play them.
Joker # cards allow you to choose the value of the # card when you play them.
End of the game
When you have only two cards left in your hand, don’t forget to call out “Back! If you don’t call out “Back”and someone else does, you must draw two cards as a penalty.
The game ends when a player has successfully discarded all of his or her cards. At this point, all other players must keep track of the points of the cards they still have in their hands and offer them to the player who has managed to get rid of all his cards.
The points are counted as follows:
- cards with numbers are worth their numerical value
- Joker 2 cards are worth 20 points
- Joker cards # are worth 40 points
After several rounds, the player who first reaches 200 points wins the game.
