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. When do we put the 3rd card back though from the center row?

  2. Whoever made DOS is a nerd, instructions too hard to understand for my tiny brain cell, threw my DOS in the trash and played Uno instead. Cri cri

  3. lol…seriously. just got this and am now more confused than i was…wow

  4. I’m going to need to raise my grandma from the dead to explain this game to me.

    The only enjoyment we got from this game was reading the other frustrated/angry/funny comments. Didn’t even know there was a 3rd row till watching this video

  5. "Uno is the greatest card game ever"
    "if it's so good, where's Uno²?"
    D O S

  6. Ok that's cool and all but where's the +4 card?

  7. How about just no this is basically yugioh now

  8. i just bought DOS and now Im regretting. 🙁 gotta go grab my old and torn UNOs

  9. can someone put this in dumb ppl terms 🥲

  10. I play this alot with my friends hahahah. But i found my dos card and watched this again cause i forgot😐 its so easy. All of my friends easily knew how to play lol

  11. I only understand the 1/4 of the game.

  12. I watched the video and still don’t understand it lol but isn’t there a loophole? If your caught when you don’t say dos but it’s your turn you could play your 2 cards and win right? You wouldn’t need to draw 2 cards

  13. An additional rule is to score the 2 cards as 99 points.

  14. We don’t play by points we play by whoever runs out of cards first wins 😂

  15. What I learned😂:
    1. Match the number either the color or any color important is the number is match it can be double or single match.
    2. If you match the number with double match with same color to the center, everyone will draw then you can place 1 card from your hand to the table.
    3. Wild cards: the 2 wildcard that is any color match you can use that for double match with double color and everyone will draw.
    3. The # sign wild card will represent any number either single match or double match that can match the number at center.
    4. If you can't match the card at the center you draw a card then next player will play.
    5. If you have 2 cards left you should shout DOS that means you only have 2 cards left if not you will get another 2 cards from the center.

    The objective of the game is the first one to reach the 200 points.

    But for me the first one who will finish first the game will be the winner 😂

  16. I got confusion how can the next player play the game/how to proceed to the next player

  17. This is UNO But 2 Things Are Different For Me

    1. DOS is UNO's Brother
    2.It's UNO But for Smarter People

  18. im just gonna make my own game from dos card lol

  19. Weird weird all out weird i can taking argue with me . That's really weird

  20. Uno, dos, tres, cuarto, cinco, sais

  21. For people who don't undestand,then try to play while listening to this vidio,it will help you.

  22. Am I the only person who thought there was only uno?! I was browsing on amazon and found DOS. This is more confusing for me

  23. This game's mere existence is meme fodder, and I love it!
