I'm thinking of taking some of the cards from Deep Undercover and adding them to Codenames. I've already whittled down a bunch of cards. Right now I'm considering these

Maybe I cut some pairings that you're currently using. What would you add that I don't have included?

What is the criteria you're asking people to vote good/average/poor on?

Huh. All the words would obviously work in codenames. But what are you trying to achieve by adding them? Knowing that would make the votes actually mean something. Are you trying to:
-Increase the variety of words in the base game without making it "dirty"
-Add a little bit of "dirty" to the base game
-Make the base game totally naughty
-I don't know, something else?

I guess this would be the closest description.

Its hard to separate almost all of these words from their double meaning once you know that the cards were designed in that context.

I've selected a few in the poll that I think could maybe work.

I was also considering mixing the 2 sets, but after seeing this word list I think I'll pass.
Honestly, it will just be an annoying reminder that Codenames: Deep Undercover even exists whenever a word like "Headlights" would turn up.

I like the ones that have a double meaning (almost all of them). You've seeded out the straight up vulgar ones which is what I would do as well. the only one I'm not a fan of is 'vomit'.

Also not a fan of it, but I think Sin is a really good word card.

This. Except, I think I'd want the diarrhea card depending on what is on the other side.

The following words are common to both sets (and I have rated them poor if they're above due to missing the cross-over initially):

box, pound, whip, bottle, bear, watch, mouth, nurse, tie, film, needle, beach, hotel, fire, drill, hole, club, chick, bar, queen, nail, hand, and log are common to both.

Apple in Codenames, Apples in Deep Undercover
Ball in Codenames, Balls in Deep Undercover

I'll edit this post as I find them.

The original Codenames uses no plural words.
