Play Against and Verse :

Some young people use “verse” as a verb meaning “to play against,” as in “I’ll verse you at basketball after school.” Computer gamers are particularly fond of virtual opponents versing each other.

Presumably this bit of slang derives from the word “versus,” but it’s not standard English and is likely to confuse outsiders.
