What’s better than one? Two, of course! Introducing the newest member to the UNO® family, the first new game release from the classic card brand in over 50 years – DOS.
Based on the same simple rules that have made UNO® one of the world’s much-loved card games, DOS is a new spin on an old favourite, reflecting UNO’s® perfectly simple premise of matching numbers and colours, but offering the additional challenge of multiple play options.
DOS features new rules and 3 new cards to offer players a different challenge alongside the nostalgia of the classic UNO® brand. The DOS game starts with two cards in the centre and each player with seven cards in their hand. As per UNO®, the aim of the game is for players to get rid of their cards before their competitors do by matching them to the cards on the piles on the table, either through numbers or colours.
In a fun twist, if a player has two cards that add up to the number on the pile, they are able to put down both cards at the same time. Anytime a player has only two cards in their hands, they must yell “DOS”. The winner is the first person to attain 200 points.
If you love UNO®, you’re going to love DOS twice as much! It’s a fun, fast-moving game that’s set to become a firm family favourite.
DOS hits South African shelves in March 2019 and will be available at selected retailers for RRP R119.99. Suitable for children aged 7+
