Picture this - It’s been a long week and an even longer time since you have seen your friends and had a nice, relaxing ‘chill sesh’ with them. As excited as everyone is to meet each other, the goal is to get high, relax and enjoy each other’s company. While you can do this by simply rolling a J or lighting a bong, a weed party game is a fun way to spice up an otherwise normal hangout. Whether you are looking to get completely lit or just slightly buzzed, these smoking games are guaranteed to cater to everyone’s preference. From the evergreen ‘never have I ever’ to the more challenging ‘straight face’, these smoking games will leave you and your friends high AF, in a fit of giggles, struggling to catch air (in a good way of course). So pick a game that you find most interesting, keep some joints or bowls for the bong ready and gather everyone to get high in a new, fun way by playing these games-
1. Never Have I Ever
This classic party game is great with joints a much as it is with booze. Once you have gathered everyone around and made sure there are enough joints to go around- a person has to be picked first. That person will make a statement that starts with ‘Never have I ever...’ followed by something that they haven't done yet. For instance, ‘never have I ever gotten high and eaten an entire pizza by myself’. Whoever in the group who has done it would have to take a drag. The game continues with the next person and so on till everyone has taken enough drags to get buzzed. This is a fun game to play with a group of friends who want to get to know each other a little better while getting stoned.
2. Heavyweight or Last Person Standing
Known by many names, this game is just what the name implies- smoke until you can't smoke no more. While this may sound fun, it is best to play this game towards the end of the party or when one has no prior commitments for the rest of the day because this is guaranteed to knock you out. The goal of the game is simple- smoke until you physically can't smoke anymore. If you pass out, fall asleep or stop smoking because you get too high, you're out. This game will definitely leave you and you're friends, especially the last person, with the severe case of the munchies, so proceed with caution and stock up on supplies and make sure this game is played in a comfortable setting (for the losers to sleep).
Definitely, one of the most fun games to play while toking, medusa will leave you and you're friends clutching your stomachs in fits of giggles. You start the game by sitting in a circle with everyone while putting your head down. On the count of 3, everyone is supposed to look up and stare at another player. If a person is looking at someone who IS NOT looking at them, you're safe. However, if you find yourself staring at someone who is staring right back at you, both of you have to shout ‘MEDUSA!’ and take a hit. This game is played better with a bong as the bong rips will make sure your tokes are harder and the game even funnier to play.
4. DIY Master
If your friends and you are in the mood to get creative while getting high, this is the most fun smoking game out there. The goal of this game is to create a bong out of everyday materials that are around the house, for example - a plastic water bottle, an apple, empty toilet paper roll and even a pen .. the options are literally endless! Once everyone has created their masterpiece, all the players will gather around and test the DIY bongs. The players then vote on which of the bongs gave them the smoothest and fastest hit and that player wins. This game is played better with a larger group of people so everyone gets high sooner while trying out all the ingenious DIY bongs. A bonus is you also get to keep a cool memento from the party!
5. Marijuana Jenga
Playing Jenga sober can be stressful as there is always pressure to not drop all the blocks and loose but marijuana Jenga is a fun alternate way of playing with these blocks. The first fun aspect of this game is everyone getting high and writing some sort of action on the block, for example - take 2 back to back hits or play the rest of the game blindfolded or play with one hand. Since everyone is high, it won't be long before everyone comes up with creative actions. Once every block has an action written on it, the tower can be assembled and played normally. The difference here is, when a player pulls out a block, they have to do what it says and when a person causes the tower to fall, they have to watch everyone take at least 2 hits of a j without them. While you can even make up your own rules while playing, this is an exciting alternative to the normal way of playing Jenga. Played best in a large group, the key to making this game fun is making sure the rules are innovative and designed to get everyone baked.
6. Straight Face
Any stoner will agree that one of the hardest things to do while being high is keeping a straight face and trying not to laugh and that is the exact goal of this game. Before the game is started, penalties have to be decided and they can be as creative or absurd as you want. Some of the penalties could be something like - rolling the next few joints with their own joint or buying everyone munchies or prank calling someone on their contact list. Once the penalties have been decided, everyone relaxes and lights one or multiple joints and when everyone is sufficiently high, a person will call out ‘STRAIGHT FACED STONER’ and from then on everyone has to put on an absolutely straight face. No form of smiling, giggling, laughing or grinning can be tolerated. Whoever looses (and there will be many losers) will have to perform a penalty from the list that was made before. To make it tougher for people to win, losers can go the extra mile and try and do stuff to make the remaining players laugh or even crack a smile. This is a fun game to check your laughing tolerance but the fun of the game lies in finally being able to laugh after holding it in for so long!
One of the most common weed games out there, every stoner has played this game with their friends at one point of the other. While the joint is lit and being passed, the point of the game is to hold your breath after you have to take a puff, till the joint comes back to you. One of the easiest and no fuss games to play, you basically just light the J, take a puff, hold it in and pass it to the next person and exhale only when it comes back to you. IF you can't hold it in or you choke before the joint comes back to you, you're out of the game. If there are 5 or more players, this game definitely gets more challenging so if you are an amateur smoker, play this game with a small group of friends. However, if it is played in a bigger group, the longer the joint takes to get back at you, the stronger your high will get (provided you can hold it in for that long).
8. Stoner Movietime
Definitely one of the most relaxed games on this list, you can play this game if everyone is in the mood for a chill night in. All you have to do is pick out a classic stoner movie and every time anyone in the movie gets high or mentions getting high (or anything related to weed), everyone in the room takes a hit of the joint or a bong too! This is a great way to get high while watching a movie about getting high and will leave you and your friends with a chill and mellow vibe. To switch things up, you can even play this game with various categories like if you choose a rom-com, everyone can take a hit whenever the actors kiss or if you choose a horror then everyone can take a hit when there is a jump scare scene. The possibilities are endless and you can be as creative as you want.
9. Traffic Lights
The point of this game is to basically increase the number of hits every time the weed is passed around to make sure everyone is super high by the time the joint is over. The person who lights the j is the starting point and they start by taking one hit and once the joint is passed and comes back to them, they take 2 hits and passes it again. This gradual increase in the number of hits every time will get everyone super baked within 4 rounds. To make things more interesting, you can also switch things up and add the rules of the Taxi game to this round by making the players hold in the puff till the joint is passed onto them. If you weren't high when you started this game, a couple of rounds for sure will leave you baked.
10. Bong Pong
No party game is complete without beer pong and this game combines the best of both the drinking and the stoner world! The rules of the game are no brainer, every player will try to bounce a ping pong ball into a cup of water or beer, the choice is up to the players. Once the shot is made, the player can either take a big rip, drink the beer in that cup or do both to make things interesting! A fun way to get everyone in the party playing, this game should, however, be played with caution as one can get cross-faded if they are mixing marijuana with beer.
