Bored? Try Playing These Weed Games

The energy will be high during these games.

by Kelly Pitts – November 11, 2020

Looking to spice up your next gathering of cannabis enthusiasts? Inject some added amusement into your next smoke session with some fun weed games! Some of these entertaining pastimes are similar to drinking games, but with a weedy twist, while others are in a league of their own.

To make sure that everyone has a safe and enjoyable time playing these weed games, keep in mind the following tips:

  • It’s recommended to use dry flower instead of concentrates or edibles, which can be a bit too intense for some.
  • Mixing significant cannabis consumption with alcohol is not recommended and can have negative effects.
  • Know your limits and feel free to take a break from smoking if you feel yourself getting too high.

Never Have I Ever

Pack up lots of weed before getting started. Go around in a circle. The first player will say “Never have I ever” followed by something they’ve never done (i.e. gone snowboarding or eaten a ghost pepper ). If any of the other members of the group HAVE done the action mentioned, they take a hit from their piece. Then the next player says “Never have I ever” and the process repeats until you get bored or tap out. In the time of social distancing, t his game can be played virtually via video chat as well.

Musical Marijuana

If you’ve ever played the “Thunder” drinking game, this is a similar concept. Pick any song with an often-repeated word or phrase (examples include AC/DC’s Thunderstruck , Bob Marley’s Jammin , or Outkast’s Hey Ya ). Every time you hear the phrase repeated, take a toke. This game is super intense when every player has their own joint or piece to smoke. You can make it easier by using only one joint and passing it to the next person after every repeat.

Medusa

In Greek mythology, those who gazed upon the face of Medusa were turned to stone. In this game, gazing upon your opponent could cause you to get stoned. The game is simple: all players stand or sit in a circle and begin with their eyes closed. With eyes still closed, turn to face another opponent. On the count of three, everyone opens their eyes. If the person you’re looking at is also looking at you, both players take a hit. Any players who do not meet someone else’s gaze are safe…until the next round!

Cannagories

For a game that’s easy to learn but not always easy to win, pick any category and go around the circle, with each player naming a member of that category. Consider starting with an easy category like “Spongebob Characters.” The first person to get stumped takes a toke. After two players get stumped and take their hits, change categories.

For an added challenge, choose a broad category. Make a rule that each new player must use the last letter of the previous person’s answer as the first letter of their answer. Let’s take the category of “Musicians” as an example. If Player One says “Elvis Presley,” then Player Two’s answer must start with the letter Y, perhaps Yoko Ono. Player Three must then choose a musician whose name begins with the letter O.

Ash Bomber

For this game, you’ll need a few easy-to-find items:

  • A glass cup or jar
  • A piece of tissue paper/facial tissue/paper towel
  • A rubber band
  • A penny
  • A joint

Cover the opening of the glass container with the tissue or paper towel and secure it with a rubber band, similar to how you would make a sploof. Place the penny on top of the tissue and light the joint. After each hit, the player must use the joint to burn a hole in the tissue paper. When the penny falls into the cup, the last player to burn a hole is out. You can replace the covering and the penny and continue to play, if desired.

Bong Pong

Like the ever-popular game of beer pong, you’ll need several Solo cups, at least two ping pong balls (it’s always good to have extra, however, in case they become lost or damaged during the game), and a relatively long table to set up on. Arrange the solo cups in a triangle formation and play as you would normally, with each player trying to eliminate cups by tossing the pong balls into them, with one key difference: Your reward for sinking a ball into a cup is a hit of weed.

You can also make up a few weed-related rules of your own. For example, you can establish the rule that if one team captures a ball on a roll-back, they must hold in a hit of weed while taking their trick shot.

Straight Face

Keeping a straight face when you have a case of the giggles is harder than you might think, and the higher you get, the more difficult this game can be to win. On the count of three, everyone will put on a serious face. The first one to laugh or smile is out. You can choose to take a hit as a penalty, a reward, or as a way to make each round progressively harder.

Buzzwords

For a fun ongoing game, consider picking a few “buzz” words in the beginning of your gathering and inform everyone that getting caught using one of these words means taking a hit. Some common examples include weed , pot , or high , but you can also get creative. You may choose to make “I,” “me,” or any proper names (city names, brand names, people’s names) into buzz words. This game is also fun to play in a group or alone while watching a stoner flick.

High card

For this game, you’ll need a deck of cards. The dealer deals one card face down to each player. The dealer then flips one card from the deck face up. The first player must guess whether their own card is higher or lower than the card that is face up. After guessing, the player flips their own card face-up. If they’re right, they take a hit. The next player must then guess if their hidden card is higher or lower than the previous player’s card. Once every player has made their guesses and taken their hits, deal again to play another round!

Final Thoughts on Weed Games

Weed games are a fun way to add some fun and excitement to any social gathering. Remember that moderation is key, and that you can sit out from any game if you feel like you’re getting too high. Watch out for your friends and yourself to make sure everyone has an enjoyable experience.

Similar to drinking games, playing games with marijuana brings a group of people together over a common activity. Next time you’re looking for something to spice up your smoke session, try one of these weed games.

6 Video Games Where You Can Make Your Character Smoke Weed

People seem to be mostly fine with video games that involve shooting thousands of people with guns, but as soon as those games include a little nudity or sex, everyone loses their minds. And that outrage is doubled if there’s anything involving drugs, even marijuana. But there are some games that are willing to include a little cannabis in their gameplay.

Here are six video games where you can smoke weed:

1. Grand Theft Auto V

Grand Theft Auto is one of the most popular video game series ever because it basically just drops you into a giant city with guns and let’s you do whatever you want. In the most recent game, they added bongs in the houses belonging to your characters. So you could use your bong, and then you’d stumble around your house for a little bit. It was pretty fun.

2. Saints Row 1 and 2

The Saints Row games are basically just rip offs of the Grand Theft Auto series, although they usually took everything one step further. As part of that, the first two games in the series allowed you to smoke marijuana even before Grand Theft Auto did.

3. Far Cry 3

In Far Cry 3 you’re stranded on an island trying to help your friends who have been kidnapped by pirates. In one mission, you’re tasked with burning down a field of marijuana. And if you get a little too close, your character will start feeling the effects and the mission gets a lot more difficult.

The original Narc game was a 1988 arcade game where police officers basically shoot a bunch of drug dealers. But in a 2005 remake of the game, after you confiscated a drug dealer’s stash, you had the option to turn it in to the evidence room, sell it on the street yourself or use it yourself. In fact, the game even gave you performance boosts for using the drugs, including marijuana.

5. Weed Shop

Weed Shop and its sequel Weed Shop 2 are PC games available on Steam where you go through the process of building a marijuana business. You can grow your own cannabis, staff your own dispensary, and even roll your own joints. Technically, you don’t really smoke marijuana, but you literally do everything else related to it so we’ll still include it.

Postal and Postal 2 are two controversial video games that included a ton of material that was meant to gross or offend many people. For instance, you could pee on enemies to stun them, and that’s really just one of the more tame things. So obviously including marijuana use (and a bunch of other drugs as well) was going to be included.

People seem to be mostly fine with video games that involve shooting thousands of people with guns, but as soon as those games include a little nudity or sex, everyone loses their minds. And that outrage is doubled if there’s anything involving drugs, even marijuana. But there are some games that are willing to include a little cannabis in their gameplay.
