Essentially, I will speak a line. You will then speak a line which meets the meaning, matches rhythm, and turns my line against me. You can be “mean or rude” as this was just a friendly way to pass the time

.An example: Me – I’m the terror of Eastmen, a wolf of pure white.You – That’s all well and good, but you surely can’t Flyt.Each candidate will do 3 lines against me.
