Getting started

First time players? Learn the basics here and get going quickly.


Take out the four rule cards and leave them on the table face up for everyone to read and refer to during the game.
Play a few practice rounds until everyone gets it. Move on to the advanced rules if you’re looking for a new challenge or create your own!
Don’t feel stupid, everyone F**ks up and that’s part of the fun!

Before starting, remove any cards from the deck you may find too offensive.
Hint: The last five cards in the deck contain the C word.
  1. Divide the deck amongst the players.

  2. Take turns to flip over your card and say your answer.
    See the four rule cards for the correct answer.

  3. If you take too long or say the wrong answer, other players race to slap the deck.

  4. The winning slapper gives the top two cards to anyone they choose.

  5. The rest of the deck goes to the loser who goes again.
    The winner is the first person to lose all of their cards.



The details


The first player to lose all of their cards wins. Here’s how F**k. The Game works.

  1. Your dealer distributes all cards evenly among the players – face down. Don’t shuffle or look at your cards. Leave the four rule cards on the table for reference.
  2. Starting with the dealer, you take turns to flip over one of your cards. Always draw from the top of your deck and place it face up in a pile in the middle.
  3. Depending on your card, you’ll need to quickly shout out the colour you see or the word you read – only the current player shouts.
  4. If you take too long to answer or get it wrong, other players can call you out by slapping the central pile:

The first player to slap the cards can give a total of two cards from the central pile to any one or two players.

The remaining cards in the pile go to you for losing your turn.

How long is too long? It’s up to your group to decide.

  1. The player who answered incorrectly resumes play.
  2. The game continues until someone gets rid of all of their cards.

All cards must remain on the table or held in view. You cannot hide your cards (e.g. under the table).


Advanced rules

Finding it too easy? Make the game harder by adding the following rules.

The point rule

  1. Select your favourite swear word – we recommend choosing the word that has the most impact!
  2. Let’s imagine your group chose Cock. Every time Cock is drawn, the following rules apply:
  3.  Black text: Say the background colour.

     Coloured text: Say Cock and simultaneously point at another player. The player you point at will then be forced to pick up the cards in the pile.

    1. If you get it wrong, take too long or don’t point simultaneously you’ll be forced to pick up all the cards in the pile.



    Cock up rule


    If you take too long or get it wrong on a Cock card

    all players must give you one card from their decks and you must pick up all the cards in the pile.


    Slap happy rule


    If the group decide another player is slapping too early or unfairly before the player can answer, then that person must pick up all the cards in the pile.


    The heckler


    Anyone can yell out any colour or word in the game to mess with the current players mind making them second guess their answer. Keep in “mind” (ba doom ching) the more you do this it will mess with your head when it’s your turn.


    Double swear word


    Any time there are two swear words in a row, every player has to perform an action. (Eg Stand up, put a thumb on the edge of the table, it’s up to you to decide.) The last person to do so picks up all the cards in the pile.


    Substitute swear words


    Every time a swear word appears the current player mentions a substitute word (e.g. for “Cock” you could say “Penis”). You can’t say a word that someone else has already said.


    F**k. No


    Deal each player eight cards.

    Players look at and pair up their cards based on colours and swear words.

    The colour of the text is disregarded, only the word and background colours are matched.

    Pick up 2 cards


    Pick up 4 cards


    Wild card (choose any colour). This card can also be used to negate any other card (e.g. cancelling out 3 x F**k)

    1 x F**k

    Every one gives the next player 1 card from their deck

    2 x F**k

    If the next person also plays a F**k card, the player after them (the third person) picks up 10 cards

    3 x F**k

    If the third person also plays a F**k card, this player can nominate a player to pick up 10 cards
