    Look at your title -- it's also perfectly fine without a verb! :) Mar 23, 2020 at 9:04

    Wenn es ein ganzer Satz sein soll, beginnt er mit einem Großbuchstaben und endet mit einem Satzzeichen. Mar 23, 2020 at 9:14
  • Funktioniert auch im Imperativ: Alle Macht den Verben! Diese Art von satzwertigen Ausdrücken hat doch inzwischen sicher einen Namen.

I can't tell you if there are grammatical rules that make this legitimate, but I can tell you that your feeling is right. Usually you say:

In some cases it sounds fine to drop the verb when it's between a subject and an adjective. But this is only applied to short sentences, e.g. for advertisements. Maybe it gets clearer when you see the english translation:

FYI: Anyways, this is more of a feels/sounds right thing and depends on context. Just use verbs, which is formally correct, and be on the safe side.
