Alcohol has a way of strengthening the effects of cannabis. For many consumers, that can spell the end of their night. Or the end of their participation in smoking games, anyway.
Now that you have a few pointers for how to keep everyone in the game longer, let’s dive into the actual games. And be sure to share your favorite marijuana game in the comments. The 14 Best Cannabis Smoking Games (for Your Next Party) The following games will work whether you have dozens of participants or it’s just you and a friend. Turning movies and TV shows into drinking games is about as American as baseball. Start by picking a movie or series with cannabis as a key element or plot point (we have a list of the most popular in our Best of 420 post). Now, take a hit every time: someone in the movie or show mentions marijuana (or weed, pot, cannabis, ganja, etc) someone smokes marijuana (or eats edibles) you see marijuana on screen. Instead, choose a song with semi-repetitive lyrics. Finally, take a hit every time that lyric is repeated.
Here are a few of my favorites: Jammin’ , Bob Marley & The Wailers (every time you hear “jammin’”) Thunderstruck , AC/DC (every time you hear “thunder”) Roxanne, The Police (every time you hear “Roxanne” or “red light”) Hey Ya, Andre 3000 (every time you hear “Hey Ya”) Single Ladies, Beyonce (every time you hear “Uh oh”) You Spin Me Round, Dead or Alive (every time you hear “round”) I Wanna Be Sedated, The Ramones (every time you hear “I wanna be sedated”) The selection is almost limitless. Just find a song you like, pick a lyric, and enjoy! You can also make the game less weed-intensive by passing the weed each time the keyword or phrase is used. Categories is one of those games that anyone can play. Get everyone to sit in a circle (or a vague, circle-like amoeba). For example, “Movies that start with ‘w’.” The first person to miss takes a hit. After two misses, the next person in the circle picks a category and letter. For longer-lasting rounds, just pick the category (don’t choose a letter). You can make the game more difficult (and fun) by requiring subsequent picks start with the letter the previous pick ended on. For example, if the starting letter is “A” I could say “Avengers: Infinity War.” But, because my movie pick ends in “R,” the next player must choose a movie that starts with “R.” 4) Ghostride the Hit. This last-person-standing style game gets more difficult the more people you have, and is best for smaller groups of 3-5 people. Pass the bowl or joint to the next person in the circle. Try to hold your hit until the weed gets back to you. If you exhale before the pot gets back, you’re out. The goal is to get your cards to add up to 21 without going over. This game takes a little more prep work, but it’s a guaranteed good time whether you’ve got a full house or you’re one of the last ones at the party. Cover the opening of an empty wide-mouth cup or jar with tissue paper, toilet paper, or rolling paper and secure with a rubber band. After someone takes a hit, they must burn a hole in the paper before passing the joint. The person who makes the coin fall into the cup loses. As a penalty, you can either assign more tokes or have the “loser” roll the next joint from their stash. In case you were worried pong wouldn’t make the list. Set up a game of beer pong (or fill the cups with water). If you make a shot, the opposing team has to take a bong rip. If you prefer to be rewarded for a good shot—instead of penalizing your opponents—set the rules so the scoring player gets to take the bong rip.
What better name for a stoner game than the famous mythical creature that turns people to stone.
Arrange the group in a circle and make sure everyone has their own joint (or bowl or bong). On the count of 3, everyone looks up and stares at another player. If two players look at each other, both take a hit.
