Freestyle Rapping Games

The 'Vers' Card Game Lets Players Partake in Freestyle Raps

— May 10, 2017 — Life-Stages
Board games are ideal for breaking the ice at gatherings and parties, and the 'Vers' card game aims to take things to the next level by having players create their very own freestyle rap. The game works by having players pick up template cards in order to get them started with their personalized rap in order to ensure that everyone will be able to partake regardless of their freestyle skills.

The 'Vers' card game is suitable for all ages, genders and demographics as it simply provides players with simple words in order to get them started that are quite neutral. The 'Vers' rap game is the work of Jerry Spatch who created the pastime as a way to make freestyle rapping something that everyone can partake in without having to feel restricted by their skills or experience.
