Thank you so much. I wondered how well-known in Germany the English phrase (do's and dont's) is. I will also keep 'Spielregeln' and 'Regeln' for future reference (to use in a different context).

3. do's and don'ts

Regeln Plural

Spielregeln sounds good too, but depends on the rest of the text.

I would use only Regeln.
