Boston rapper and university student Jerry Spatch created a card game to help rappers become better freestylers. Spatch launched a kickstarter.com campaign and is halfway to his goal.
The game is called Vers and works by players drawing two cards – a theme card and a words card. The theme card describes what you must rap about and the words card give you three rhyming words you must use in the bars you spit.
A pledge of $25 will get you a full set of the 400 cards when it launches (expected in September 2017, assuming his Kickstarter project is fully funded).
Writing on the Kickstarter page, Spatch explained how he came up with the idea for Vers:
“I was tired of people in university saying I shouldn’t rap because it was unprofessional. Everywhere I went, when people heard about rap they’d think of a bunch of things that it wasn’t. So I made the game and it’s fun and silly and everyone can play it.”
