The object of the game is to be the first player to score 200 points. You score points each round by being the first player to get rid of all the cards in your hand. Setup. Pick a player to deal. Shuffle the deck and deal each player 7 cards. Place the deck face down on the table and flip over the top two cards, called the center row.

The player left of the dealer goes first then play proceeds clockwise. On your turn, you must either match one or both cards in the center row; or draw a card from the draw pile.

To match a single number, play a card from your hand that has the same number value as one of the cards in the center row. If this card also happens to have the same color as the card in the center row, then at the end of your turn place one card from your hand faceup, adding to the center row.

To match a double number, play 2 cards from your hand (and only 2) that add up to the total of one of the center row cards, placing both cards on top of it. If both cards happen to have the same color as the center row card, then at the end of your turn place one card from your hand face up, adding to the center row; then every other player draws 1 card from the draw pile.

After you play a match on a center row card you are allowed to play again on another center row card that hasn’t already been played on this turn.

If you cannot, or do not want to make a match, you must draw 1 card. If you NOW can make a match and would like to, you may do so. If you don’t play a card, lay one card faceup in the center row. To end your turn, discard all the piles of cards in the center row that have more than 1 card on them. Single cards stay. If there are now fewer than 2 center row cards, flip over cards from the draw pile into the center row until there are 2. Finally, if you scored any color bonuses, place those cards in the center row now.

There are two special cards. The wild DOS card counts as 2 of any color. You decide what its color is when you play it. The Wild # symbol card counts as any number from 1 to 10 in that card’s color. You decide what its number is when you play it. If either wild card is faceup in the center row, then you decide what color or number it is when you match to it.

Whenever you have exactly 2 cards in your hand, you must say “DOS!” (meaning 2). If you don’t and another player catches, you must immediately draw 2 cards, unless currently it is your turn, then, you must wait until the end of your turn to draw the two cards.

The first player to get rid of all the cards in their hand ends the round. Apply any double matching color bonuses then score points. The player that went out earns points based on all the remaining cards in other players’ hands. Number cards 1 and 3-10 are worth their face value. Each Wild dos is worth 20 points and each wild # symbol is worth 40 points. If no player has 200 points or more, gather up all the cards, shuffle and play another round with the winner of the previous round dealing the next. The first player to get 200 or more points wins!


  1. Imagine accidentally saying uno instead of dos

  2. Playing Dos with standard playing cards:
    Red = Hearts
    Yellow = Diamonds
    Blue = Spades
    Green = Clubs
    1 = Ace
    2 to 10 = Same as face value (although the 2 can be any color)
    Any face card = Wild # cards

  3. Can you explain how to play in English please?

  4. What in the actual confusing f**** s*** is this

  5. I think the hang up people have about this game is that it's so different from Uno. It's definitely more complicated than Uno is. But if you forget about Uno compared to this game while you're playing it, and just accept it for the game that it is, it's very fun.

  6. It's true that it's not so so complicated compared to other games.

    But being used to Uno and thinking this was similar, the jump on complexity is quite a lol, lol.

    Well explained.

  7. This is kind of a weird one, I mean, there are no Skips 🚫, Reverses 🔄 and Plus Num. Cards ➕

  8. To be honest Dos just seems boring, I'd prefer Uno, it has that "charm" to it

  9. So after your turn and put the center row in the discord pile and you put two new cards down and one from your hand, what happens to the card you put down out your hand?

  10. What confuses me is the fact that when a player, who is unable to play any of their cards, draws a card, they add another one to the center row. Which is the same result as the reward for playing a color match..

    So there's no penalty for being unable to play?

  11. What happens if I draw 1 card while I have 1 card, so that I would have 2 cards by drawing? Will I have to say "Dos" or not?

  12. This game looks familiar I just can’t put my finger on it

  13. Does anyone acturally know how to play this game. Because I’m having trouble. UNO is so much easier

  14. I. . I cant understand, how tf cant i understand this, why do they place a different number and color to the left side, it doesnt make any sense, and whats the bonus card in the left of the left, what are those for?! Wtf, i cant understand a single thing on this game, idfk why did i even bought this card game instead of uno without understanding this sh*t, oh god plis could someone explain those things i cant understand, im such a brain-ded. Even if i watch other videos i still cant undrrstand this card game. Guys help! I beg of y'all i gotta learn this, or else ill feel depressed of getting wasted my money for this.

  15. The rules are the same as uno, except for….nevermind. This bears almost no similarities to uno.

  16. Just got this game tonight, wish I didn't. These instructions are ridiculous

  17. This is one of the most unnecessarily complicated FAMILY card games I've ever seen. This almost makes me lose all respect for the original UNO.

  18. Yeah…..I'm just gonna mix uno and dos, bc dos' rules are confusing

  19. I already know how to plat it, # card :: any number (to change colors with color variants) 2 wild card to change the color, i'ts the same as uno, but different name as two
