  • Ask everyone to contribute 2 or 4 rhyming sentences.
  • Everyone should provide their lyrics (sentences) in the chat. To start things out you should provide 2 or 4 rhyming sentences to give participants an idea of the cadence that will be used. For example, I woke up this morning and the sky was blue. I thought about taking a trip to the zoo, works well with many instrumental beats.
  • The person who will rap or sing the song should be told ahead of time (prior to the event) so that they can find an instrumental beat that they like.

Game Flow
  1. The werewolves (bad guys) are picked before the game starts (via private message).
  2. The good guys are picked before the game starts (via private message).
