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.
1. 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.
his 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.
4. Weed Jenga
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.
5. Power Hour
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.
But for that to work, the person doing the changing has to pay attention—something that may get harder and harder as the hour goes on. Whenever the song changes, everyone has to take a hit from whatever ganja is nearby. Dancing and revelry are encouraged.
6. Video Games
This weed game is pretty self-explanatory. Pick your favorite video game—Super Smash Bros. or Mario Kart work well—and play until there’s a winner. Winner gets to take a puff from the bong while the others have to watch. Play again. Alternatively, the winner could get 2, 3, or 4 puffs while the loser(s) only get one.
7. Rock Band
Rock Band is great for groups of 2 to 5 players and can be a seriously entertaining way to pass a few hours…and a few joints. If you don’t have Rock Band, you can use Guitar Hero.
You could add any number of different rules, but basically, you pick a score or a percentage and everyone (or the team as a whole) has to be above that number. If you achieve that goal, everyone gets 2 hits. If you don’t achieve that goal, you only get 1 hit (or no hits).
Alternatively, you can go head-to-head (no pun intended). The person with the highest score gets two tokes while the loser gets none. Make up your own rules and rock on.
8. Movie Time
For those who want to move as little as possible while getting amazingly high, there’s always movie time. First, pick a movie. Then make a rule that when something specific happens or is said in the movie, everyone has to take a hit.
So, for example, if you chose a stoner movie, every time someone smokes in the movie, you all have to puff-puff at home.
And it doesn’t just have to be stoner movies. If you pick a rom-com, smoke when someone kisses in the movie. If you pick an action movie, smoke when someone gets shot. If you pick a horror movie, smoke every time you see blood. Need I go on?
9. Bong Pong
This weed game is similar to beer pong but the reward is bud instead of beer. Players attempt to bounce a ping pong ball into a cup of beer. If the ball lands in the cup, the person who made the shot gets to hit the bong while her opponent has to drink the beer. Make up your own rules for an added bit of fun.
10. Smokin’ Dice Game
Smokin’ Dice is a quick and easy way to have some fun and get high at the same time. Purchase a set of Smokin’ Dice, pack a big bowl of bud, and start rolling.
The four dice give you different combinations of tasks such as, “Player of your choice take 2 tokes then laugh as hard as you can while spinning in a circle” or “You take a puff then do a dance in slow motion.” No remembering a long list of rules, just plenty of smoking fun.
11. Hold Your Smoke (Taxi)
Just as the name of this weed game says, the point is to hold your smoke as long as possible. The simple version is: take a hit and hold it in, pass the ganja to the next person, exhale your smoke when the MJ makes it back around to you. That’s it!
If you can’t hold your smoke, or you choke, before the bud gets back to you, you’re out. There are endless variations of this game so make up your own rules for even more fun. This game can be pretty challenging if you’ve got 4 or more players, or if you really suck at holding your breath, so plan accordingly. At least you’ll be high while you’re doing it so who cares, right?
12. Wheel Of Weed Game
This one is perhaps the most prep-heavy, although we have seen rumors that an electronic version might be up for sale soon. You’ll need something that spins easily like a spinner from a board game (Twister?) to make this work. Label the spinner with the following tasks:
- Pass the Toke
- Spin Again
- Anything else you’d like to add
Take turns spinning and performing the task specified. You can choose a set number of rounds, play until the ganja is gone, or play last man standing.
13. Strip Choker
Strip Choker requires that everyone has their own weed, so plan accordingly. Other than that, the rules are simple. All players take a hit at the same time and hold it in. The first person to let their smoke out (be it by coughing or exhaling in any way) takes off a piece of clothing.
14. Ash Bomber
For this weed game, you’ll need the following supplies:
- A wide-mouthed jar (a cup will do too)
- A sheet of toilet paper, tissue paper, or rolling paper
- A penny
- A rubber band
- A joint or blunt (not a bong)
Cover the opening of the jar with the paper of your choice. Secure around the rim with the rubber band (like you would a spoof). Set the penny in the center of the tissue paper and light up your bud. Each person takes one or two tokes (decide beforehand), holds in the smoke, burns a hole in the tissue paper, passes the joint, and then exhales.
Players must burn a hole each time they take their tokes. The person who makes the penny fall is the loser and has to perform some task. We like making them roll the next joint so we can play again, but you can make up your own penalties.
Basically blackjack with weed as the reward. Player(s) closest to 21 in each hand gets a toke or two.
