Mattel to release Uno sequel Dos with new rules and gameplay

What comes after Uno is Dos.

The classic card game has been virtually unchanged since its inception in 1971, but with the launch of Dos comes a new objective and several new rules for Uno’s sequel.

There are a few key differences in the follow-up to Uno — the most obvious being how you win. Points are added up and cards are expelled from a player’s hand. But this time around, a player must be holding two cards to call out “Dos” and secure a victory for any given round.

In the spinoff, two decks of cards are used in each game for two to four competitors. Everyone selects one card and the player with the highest number becomes the dealer. Each person is dealt seven cards and selects two from the deck that remain face up and create the “center rows.”

Dos has similar rules as Uno, except players make two piles of cards and can throw down two cards at a time instead of one.

Players can then — each in turn — lay down one card in their hands that match the rows or two cards together that add up to a number shown in a row. Like the original game, there are two special cards in the deck, now called Wild Dos cards, and they both benefit the person who finds them and hurt the opposing players.

After “Dos” is called, the cards in each opponent’s hand are added and awarded to the winner but that’s not the end of the game – another round commences, and, perhaps tediously, more games continue until someone reaches 200 points.

Target stores called first dibs on Dos, and will begin selling the game for $ 5.99 on March 4, Mashable reported, and will be available at other retailers in August.
