After each complete round (i.e. when all players have been the Judge for an equal number of turns) players may purge and re-draw as many cards as they like from their hand.
The player with the most points after 3 complete rounds wins the game.
For groups of 6+ players, it is possible to play Profanity in teams.
Two-person teams work best, however, if there is an odd number of players it’s possible to have one team of 3 players.
Shuffle the deck and deal each player 10 cards. Place the rest of the deck, face down, in the middle of the table as the draw pile.
The smuttiest team begins the game as the Judge. The Judging team turns over the top card from the draw pile.
One player from each team should now select a pairing card and will place this face down in front of their teammate. The card recipients have 30 seconds to look at the card and come up with a smutty definition for their chosen phrase.
Once the phrases and definitions have been given, both Judges should point at the person whose answer they liked the most and a total of two points will be awarded. If the vote is split, both teams receive 1 point.
If the judging team has more than two players, only two votes should be cast.
Once the scores have been written down, play continues and the team to the Judge’s left become the Judges for the next round.
The first team to 10 points wins the game.
