Design by Raf Reyes: slime is slang for friend, brother, mate, homie, son and other similar terms🕷🕸👅 ~ the serpent and the spider could be said of certain totemic value here at VERYRARE: early millenia westerner-vreligion(s) have come to depict the snake as a representative of death, destruction, evil, a penetrating legless essence, and/or poison, temptation, the devil, and deceit 🕸 ~ but historically, serpents/snakes represent fertility or a creative life force 🐍 Last but not least, spiders mean/symbolize artistry, manifestation, patience, ancient wisdom, mystical/esoteric powers, illusion, balance, and interconnection. A source of fear for some and fascination (to others), the spider is an ancient being, having inhabited the Earth for more than 300 million years. it’s very real. and very rare. VR®® ⚔️❤️

Design by Raf Reyes. As is the case with many veryrare games, the origins of 'foul hand' remain to be unearthed. It is believed that the earliest version of 'the Game' was played by the Romans, but with us it is a skeletal hand playing the 21. Play nice but play right. VERYRARE.
Design by Raf Reyes: Always been fascinated by angels and biblical, religious, symbolical stuff pertaining/referring to mythical encounters 😇 Stuff sitting within the chasm between ethereal and very real realms. That visual represents tobias and archangel Raphael (my full name), granting protection and giving back vision to the blinded Ones.
Design by Raf Reyes: In the 17th Century, the three monkeys were carved on a door of the famous Tôshô-gû shrine in Nikkô, Japan, to embody the proverbial principle of `See no evil, hear no evil, and speak no evil'—a teaching of Confucius. at VERYRARE, the three Mystic Apes (namely Iwazaru, Mizaru, and Kikazaru) certify/incVRnate sound mind, body, spirit. the tvrifecta.
