Let’s face it, there are plenty of people who would consider themselves a “lonely stoners,” but the truth is, many of us prefer to meet with a group of friends and indulge.
Do you ever find that without engagement from everybody, the room can get a little quiet? If it is, no need to let the place fall into silence. Throw a few stoners games into the mix.
All you need for most of these games are your lungs and a few good friends to share some laughs with.
So, without further ado, here are some of the best weed games to play.
10 Best Weed Games to Play
1. Green Jack
Blackjack, also known as 21, is a super popular card game. I’m sure you’ve played it with your buddies, but if you haven’t, the rules are simple.
You’re playing against the dealer, aiming to reach “21.” Each card has a value. Two through 10 are face value, face cards (jack, queen, king) are worth 10, and an Ace is worth one or eleven.
Each player receives two cards to start. If he’s happy about what he received, he can stay. If he received low cards and wants more, he can “hit.”
Whoever has the higher card total (dealer or player) wins the round. But, if someone busts (goes over 21), it’s an automatic win for the other party.
To make it a stoner game, have the winner of the round take a bong rip, or smoke a bowl. Rounds go pretty quickly, so you won’t be sitting around for too long.
Keep in mind; Blackjack can be a much more complicated game. But, with these rules, it’s easy, fun, and a great way to get stoned.
2. Traffic Lights
An oldie but goodie, traffic lights is a classic weed game that’s sure-fire to get everybody really stoned.
All it requires is a heaping dose of cannabis and some iron lungs. Those that don’t have iron lungs will have to play the next round.
First off you’ll want to roll as many joints as possible. The more, the merrier in this case, as in most cases, 1 or 2 joints aren’t going to be enough.
Gather everyone in a circle and fire up the first one. In the first round, everybody takes 1 toke and passes the joint off to the left. It has to be to the left because as we all know, the left is law.
Once the joint has made it around the circle, the number of tokes in the next round is upped to two. And as you probably guessed, once it makes it around again, it’s then raised to three. This keeps going until everyone’s had enough or you’re out of weed.
And if you’re out of marijuana, then you didn’t roll enough. There are no losers in traffic lights, have fun!
3. Ash Bomber
If you’ve never heard of Ash Bomber, don’t fret, it’s not the first stoner game that comes to mind. While it doesn’t involve a tonne of skill, it does require some precision and a bit of cunning.
To get started, you’ll first need to assemble the game pieces. You will need the following.
- Toilet paper roll
- Toilet Paper
- Penny or a nickel
- Rubber bands
- Rolled joints
First off, start by taking a single sheet of toilet paper and placing it on one end of the toilet paper roll. After you’ll want to strap it down by using the rubber bands. If you’ve ever made a sploof, you’ll get the idea.
Once the toilet paper is nice and tight, place your coin on the toilet paper in the middle. The name of the game is to keep the coin on the toilet paper without falling through.
Well, how do you correctly do this? A great question! This is where the fun part starts.
The first person starts by lighting the joint and taking a big puff. While they are holding in their toke, use the ember to make a hole in the toilet paper. This is while simultaneously not letting the coin fall through. If the coin stays perched on the toilet paper roll, perfect, it’s the next person’s turn.
Keep toking, burning a hole and passing the joint until someone eventually makes the coin fall through. The person to burn the final hole is the loser.
The loser then has to do a predetermined penalty. We like getting them to roll the next joint, but it’s up to you!
Best Weed Game #4: Chicago
Another old-timer stoner game is Chicago. Why it has the name of the American city that created deep dish pizza is beyond us. But what we can guarantee is that after playing you could probably eat an entire one to yourself.
Like Traffic Lights, it doesn’t require anything but some buds and buds.
Get a nice sized joint rolled. If you can roll and L Joint, even better. It will last much longer and keep everybody toking.
The lucky contestant in the pole position will spark the joint and take a big toke and hold it in.
Once they pass it on to the next, they’ll also take a big toke and hold it in. Everybody must hold in their tokes until the joint has made it around the circle to the person that sparked it.
You can make a penalty for the loser, but it’s not necessary. Be wary of those that hot dog the joint and purposely don’t pass it to see everybody’s face go red. It’s happened once, and it’ll happen again.
5. Bong Pong
The odds that at one point or another you’ve come across or played Beer Pong yourself are pretty high. While it can be a fun game, there are repercussions with it.
Alcohol hangovers are no joke and drinking itself can have many detrimental effects on your health. But we’re not here to tell you how to live your life, only stating the facts. And this isn’t an article about beer pong, and we’re here to play its friendly cousin, Bong Pong!
Line up the cups just as you would in beer pong, except instead of filling them with beer use water. Or mango juice, as it’ll have you feeling the effects of cannabis even more! If you want to get tricky, you can stack the cups up and make a tower.
Either way, you can’t go wrong.
While there are many rules and variations to beer pong, let’s keep it simple. Everybody has that friend or acquaintance that likes to make up rules on the fly and ruins all the fun. Each team gets either 1 or 2 players. If it’s 1 player aside, then each will shoot once, and it’s the next team’s turn. If it is a doubles match, each side shoots twice then it’s the next team’s turn.
Every time you sink a cup, the opposite side has to take either a huge hit or a bong/pipe hit. Once all the cups have been sunk, the games over and everybody can go back to just casually smoking weed. Or rack the cups up again as it’s one of the best games to play high.
6. Rolling Competition
Just like there’s more than one way to skin a cat, there’s more than one way to roll a joint. If you’re not great at rolling, then you’re going to want to be a judge.
Don’t worry; there’s no shame, you’ll get to smoke plenty of weed while others stress over rolling the best joint.
Everybody is afforded the same rolling materials. So get unique papers, blunts, crutches and anything that will make the joint looking cooler. Not everybody is the best at rolling joints so that they can be selected as judges. But if they want to participate and potentially be a dark horse, power to them.
All you need is a minimum of 1 judge, but three would be ideal. Everybody has 10 minutes to roll the most unique and best looking joint; they can use the materials given.
The joints will be judged on looks, originality, and how well they smoke. Just because a joint looks like a Charizard doesn’t mean it’s going to win. If it can’t burn, that’s an automatic loss.
The judges will score the joints on a scale of 1-10, the winner having the most points accumulated…duh!
7. Power Hour
Another drinking game that’s been resurrected for the better good of humanity, power hour. As well a great way to forget what you did for more than just an hour.
Power hour is essentially taking a toke every minute, on the minute, for an hour. What makes it fun is the playlists that have been set up by people on youtube to accompany the game. Just search “Power Hour” on youtube and find your favourite.
They’ll usually have hit songs that change up every minute to let you know it is time to take a toke. If you need to sit out a couple of rounds don’t worry, nobody is judging.
Stoner games should have no pressure attached to them, unlike the noisy and obnoxious neighbour, alcohol.
8. Smoking Dice
Smoking Dice is as easy as it gets. All that’s required is that you or your friends have some income and can afford to purchase the game from Amazon for cheap.
Now that everything has been settled, it’s time to get rolling!
The rules are fairly straight forward; each dice will have either a rule or action. Such as taking a toke in slow motion while a player touches their noses. There are four dice, so the combinations aren’t endless, but enough to have fun for quite some time.
If you liked the game but want some new variations, purchase blank die and make your own rules. This can be even more enjoyable and interesting.
9. Cards Against Humanity and What do you Meme: Cannabis Expansions
The ever-popular games of Cards Against Humanity and What do you Meme get a fresh facelift with their cannabis expansion packs. If you’ve never played either, get ready to be in for a world full of laughter.
These two games are easily some of the funniest card games to have come out in a long time and you’ll soon see why.
Every turn, there will be a new “Card Master.” They draw a card that has either a meme or a phrase on it. To win the round, you must select what you think the card master would find the funniest.
This is done by pairing the phrase or meme with the best word or phrase combination. The card master then selects which they thought made them laugh the most. The one who played the winning combination wins the round.
The first to either 7 or 10 wins will be the grand champion. If there was a king of weed games, these just might be it.
Best Weed Games #10: Geography
This game is an excellent way to brush up on your world geography. Those who are well travelled may have the upper hand, but there’s no excuse for not knowing more than a handful of countries, cities and states.
The rules are simple. Someone starts off by naming something to do with geography. This could be a state, country, city, geographical phenomenon, military base, or street.
Whatever the last letter of the first word is, the next person must name a place starting with that letter.
For example, if I said “Namibia,” the next person would say “Antigua.” The following person would say “Albuquerque,” and so on.
The further you get into the game, the harder individual letters will become. If someone doesn’t respond in a “reasonable” amount of time, they must then smoke.
This game is designed more to have fun than to get super stoned. But, if you want to be very sinister, you could suggest it to your non-geography loving friends. Either way, you’ll impress yourself with your world knowledge.
Now that you’ve got some stoner games in your tool case, all you need is some weed.
Cannabis is a Social Instrument
So there you have it! The use of weed games is an excellent way to enjoy the company of your friends and add a little spice to consuming cannabis.
While there’s plenty you can do to enjoy the high, adding some stoner games to the repertoire is highly recommended.
Even if it’s just one game at a time, there’s never going to be a point when you run out of games to play.
