Vice Verba helps students of Latin master verb forms. Players parse verbs and produce forms to earn togas. When enough togas are collected, an ‘imago’ of a famous dead Roman is unlocked. Collect all XII ‘imagines’, and don’t forget to flip the ‘imagines’ over to see their stats! Players can customize the game by choosing tenses, voices, and moods, and the presence or absence of macrons. The game increases in difficulty as the player’s skills improve.
Vice Verba was inspired by the ‘Hoplite Challenge Cup’, a non-digital game created by Drs. Hardy Hansen and Gerald Quinn for the intensive Greek program at CUNY. Thanks to Dr. Hansen for his encouragement and advice at the earliest stages of development. Thanks also to the University of Winnipeg for its generous financial support.

Ratings and Reviews
Fun and effective study app!
Great app, very polished and useful. I only wish it had more verbs to choose from and a noun format would be a great extension of this format. Definitely recommend it as an easy and convenient way to review verb synopses.
Great Study Tool
Enjoyable to play (actually rather addictive) and best of all, a great way to help memorize the conjugations. I love the art work and overall design. A very well done app! Can't recommend highly enough!
Really a fantastic resource; any chance of an Ancient Greek app?
This is a very well designed and fun app; who knew conjugations could be addictive? You are able to easily quiz yourself on any given form with accuracy, including macrons, and the UI is great.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
