Mattel Gives UNO an Upgraded Companion With New Card Game DOS
Yes, you read right.
The card game that’s brought friends together and comically torn them apart is back, with a twist; Mattel’s UNO card game will soon welcome DOS, its befitting sequel. Along the same lines as UNO, the forthcoming game allows players to make two piles of cards in addition to the ability to throw down two cards at a time rather than one.
The unexpected game comes as a result of Mattel attempting to give a positive surge to its business by updating some of its classics along with Hot Wheels and Barbie dolls. Mattel’s revenue dropped 11% last year thanks to Toys “R” Us filing for bankruptcy and the attention of kids moving from card games to technology — although UNO served as its savior thanks to its sales increasing 12% in 2017.
Retailing for $5.99 USD, DOS will make its debut at Target this March with other stores to sell the game in August.
