Playing Dog Man The Hot Dog Card Game
To start your turn you will choose one of the face down cards on the table. You will flip over the card so the picture side is visible. When you flip over the card, you should do it in a way where all of the players can see the image on the card at the same time.
What happens next depends on what type of card you flip over. See the cards of Dog Man The Hot Dog Card Game section below for more details.

Cards of Dog Man The Hot Dog Card Game
If you flip over a Hot Dog card, keep it face up. Your turn then ends.
When a Dog Man card is flipped over, all of the players should start picking up the face up Hot Dog cards on the table. You are trying to pick up as many of the cards as you can.
Some rules you need to follow when grabbing Hot Dog cards are as follows:
- You can only use one hand when grabbing cards.
- Players can only pick up one card at a time. You must put each card in your own score pile before you can pick up another card.
When all of the face up Hot Dog cards have been taken, the current turn ends. The instructions don’t specifically say what you do with the Dog Man card. I am guessing you discard the card at the end of the current turn.
Should a Dog Man card be flipped over and there are no face up Hot Dog cards, discard the Dog Man card.
If you flip over a Petey card, the players flip all of the face up Hot Dog cards so the pictures are now face down. The cards should be left in their current location so players can use their memory to try and remember where there are Hot Dog cards.
After players have flipped over all of the Hot Dog cards, the current turn ends. The game does not specifically mention what happens with the Petey card at this point. I would assume you discard the Petey card.
Should you turn over a Petey card and there are no face up Hot Dog cards, discard the Petey card and the current turn ends.
Winning Dog Man The Hot Dog Card Game
Players will keep taking turns until all of the Hot Dog cards have been taken by one of the players. If the last card is flipped over and it is a Hot Dog card, all of the players race to grab the remaining face up Hot Dog cards.
Each player then counts up how many Hot Dog cards they collected during the game. The player that collected the most Hot Dog cards, wins the game.
