Weed games are like cannabis slang: there are a lot of them and they can be pretty creative. Plus, they are a great way of getting you flying sky-high really fast and spend a fun time with your friends.
To give you plenty of options, we trolled the internet (as in carefully and systematically searched, not the offensive comment) looking for the best weed games. We then assembled 21 of the best for your smoking pleasure.
Never Have I Ever
Gather everyone together and make sure there’s enough ganja to go around. Roll a few joints, pack a few bongs, or have some blunts standing at the ready. Pick a person to go first. That person makes a simple statement starting with “Never have I ever…” followed by some action.
So, for example, someone might say, “Never have I ever been chased by a bear.” Anyone who has done or experienced that action takes a toke. The next person in the group (clockwise, counter-clockwise, zig zag around the room, whatever) makes a statement and the play goes on from there.
Sit in a circle with your cannabis at the ready. Everyone puts their head down or just looks at their feet. On the count of three, everyone looks up and stares at another player.
If you’re looking at someone who ISN’T looking at you, you’re safe. If you’re looking at someone who IS looking at you, shout “Medusa!”, fire up your joint and take a hit.
This game is simple in its concept but requires that everyone have their own weed. Put on the song Jammin’ by Bob Marley and take a hit every time Mr. Marley says “jammin’” or “jam.” There are a couple times in the song where the backup singers say “jammin’” or “jam,” so you can decide beforehand if you want those to count.
Be warned, though, those backup-singer “jams” come fast and furious (4 hits in 4 seconds). Either way, it’s a fun weed game that is sure to get you baked in no time.
This requires a bit of planning and prep beforehand, but you can make a game out of that too. You’ll need a permanent marker and a box of Jenga blocks. Get plenty high and then write rules on some or all of the Jenga blocks.
You can skip the get high part (although why you would, I don’t know) but you still have to write rules. Rules like, “take two hits” or “close your eyes for the rest of the game” work well. Get creative and have fun (that’s why the get high part first).
When you’ve finished writing the rules, assemble the Jenga tower and play as normal. When a player pulls a block, they have to do what it says. When the tower collapses, the person responsible has to watch while everyone else takes a puff on their joint or blunt. That’s the basics, but you can make up your own rules to make the game more interesting.
While not technically a game, Power Hour is a great way to get seriously stoned and have fun. You’ll need a bunch of your favorite music and a bunch of weed so there’s enough to go around.
Alternatively, you could download a Power Hour mix or play one on YouTube. A Power Hour mix is an hour or two of songs in random increments (15 seconds, 20 seconds, 30 seconds, etc.). You can also do it with your own music by randomly and manually changing the song.
The thing about weed is that some strains help you become extremely creative. Therefore, if there is a group of you getting high, why not put your heads together and come up with some fun and innovative weed games? I invite you to try some of the following 30 and perhaps write in and provide us with any well-known games that I’ve missed, along with your own ideas.
Before I begin, here are a few ground rules to ensure you don’t get completely blitzed. Sure, it is fun and everything, but isn’t it better to stay the course and be able to enjoy multiple games?
- Stick with dry herb: Weed games and high-potency concentrates are NOT a good combination. Take a single hit from a joint or bong and don’t go crazy!
- Use moderate strength weed: Steer clear of weed with THC content above 20%. It is a similar scenario to drinking games, where you use beer instead of wine or vodka.
- No extra hits: Resist the urge to get baked in between games. Save yourself for the games or else you’ll pass out halfway through ‘Never Have I Ever.
- Select your games wisely: There are so many games on this list for a very good reason; variety rules! If the group contains a few beginners, pick games where you only have hits every 10 minutes or so.
- Alcohol and marijuana don’t mix: I learned this lesson as a neophyte and ended up feeling very ill as I passed out on a sofa while my friends made prank calls.
This weed game is sure to test your lung capacity. It requires everyone to have something to smoke out of, so it may not be the best idea for large groups. The premise of ‘Strip Choker’ is simple; all members of the group take a hit simultaneously and hold it in for as long as possible. The first person to exhale or cough has to take off an item of clothing. Make sure no one cheats by turning up dressed like Scott of the Antarctic.
This is another game where everyone needs a smoking implement. For best results, make sure everyone has a bowl or pipe capable of holding roughly the same amount of marijuana. Choose a referee and start smoking! The first to finish the bowl is the winner.
This is an all-time classic and is often associated with the alcohol version: ‘beer pong.’ Bong Pong is very similar except that you obviously use cannabis instead. You can create a 1-on-1 or 2-on-2 scenario, and the goal is to try and throw a ping-pong ball into your rival’s cup.
One way to play is to fill up the cups with water and when you make a shot, you can either reward yourself with a hit or force your opponent to do so instead. Alternatively, fill the cups with beer and when you make a shot, force your rival to drink the beer while you treat yourself with a hit.
Make sure you have the following materials before beginning:
- A joint.
- A rubber band.
- A penny.
- A cup.
- A sheet of toilet paper or rolling paper.
