About

What is Rhyme & Phlow (aka RAP)

If Jay-Z, Dr. Seuss, Missy Elliott, and Run DMC sat down together, this is the game they would play. It's like Apples-to-Apples meets Munchkin in a battle for for lyrical street cred.  

In this game, you challenge your friends to somewhat epic rap battles by creating rhymes using two decks. There's a Rhyme deck and a Phlow deck.

The Rhyme deck gives you a word which, you guessed it, is the basis of your rhyming words. The Phlow deck gives you a scenario to compose your rhyme.

For example, let's say your Rhyme card says "Keel" and your Phlow card says, "About feeling lazy." Using this combination, your rhyme could go something like:


I'm still lying on my couch

The struggle is real

There's food on my shirt

On the floor a banana peel

I wish I could get up

I wish I had zeal

My shirt used to be blue

But the mold makes it look teal 😂😂😂


What's In the Box

There are 50 Rhyme cards and 50 Phlow cards. There are instructions on how to play the game and blanks for you to create your own. 

How To Play Rhyme & Phlow (RAP)

There are lots of ways to play Rhyme & Phlow. In fact, the game was designed to be flexible based on your skill set, level of competitiveness, and amount of time you want to play. We have included instructions and encourage you to come up with ways of your own to play.

Here are a few:

Hot Potato - Using only the Rhyme cards, take turns coming up with words that rhyme with the card until someone cannot or until time runs out. This a great way to warm up and is also a great game to play with kids. 

Phlow As You Go - Choose three Phlow cards then choose the one you like best. A friend decides the Rhyme card. Using both cards, you must compose a rhyme. You must start your rhyme within 3 seconds.

Rate My Phlow - Choose three Rhyme and three Phlow cards. Choose one of each to create a rhyme. Everyone scores each other's rhymes anonymously from 1-10. Everyone raps three times then adds up their scores.

Written not Spitten - Draw one Rhyme and one Phlow card. Everyone in the group has 5 minutes to compose a rhyme on paper. Everyone shares and votes on the winner (no voting for yourself!). 

Finish This - The first person shares one line of a rap. The next person must continue the rap by adding the next line, keeping with the theme, and so on.

The games are simple, fun, and flexible. 

  • Who chooses your cards? 
  • How much time do you have to create a rhyme?
  • Are players awarded points?
  • Is there a panel of judges who determines the winner?

You decide!

On Gaming

As a kid, I've always enjoyed making and playing games, whether card, video, board, or just playing outside. Today, in just about every room of our house you'll find a game to play. 

Raising three young children, my wife and I teach and play games with them regularly. We often have one set up in the middle of the dinner table and play while we eat.  

The idea of Rhyme & Phlow came when one day I had a completely random thought, "What if we could have family rap battles?" I mean, who hasn't had that thought, right? 

Like a musician practicing scales, I realized the foundation for family rap battles would be a game which helped us all create rhymes around everyday situations.

Playing games has so many social, intellectual, and problem-solving benefits. This game was designed to encourage creativity, conversation, and laughs.

I'm thankful to be able to share this with you.

Risks and challenges

The only risk in this project is not able to reach the goal. There's a minimum amount of cards that must be met before they're able to be printed. As you can see from the prototype deck, the cards are designed and ready to go. Final card design is subject to change.
