Video/Computer games

1. Grand Theft Auto 5

The highest-grossing game of all time is also the perfect way to chill and get high with friends. Besides the complete randomness of the game, you can, in fact, start your own weed empire, slowly amassing a powerful Los Santos-based business. This game is fun to play even if you are not stoned. Although, the dialogue does take on new meaning when baked and trying to play.

2. Fortnite

Fortnite is a world of many experiences. Drop onto the Island and compete to be the last player — or team — standing. Hang out with friends to catch a concert or a movie. Create a world of your own with your own rules. Or Save the World by taking down hordes of monsters with others.

3. Pokemon Go

Pokemon Go is a game that uses your phone’s GPS and clock to detect where and when you are in the game and make Pokemon “appear” around you (on your phone screen) so you can go and catch them. As you move around, different and more types of Pokemon will appear depending on where you are and what time it is. The idea is to encourage you to travel around the real world to catch Pokemon in the game.

4. Ape Out

Ape Out is a beat ’em up single-player video game played from a top-down perspective. The player controls a gorilla running through a maze while evading enemies in the form of gun-wielding humans. The human enemies are easily killed with a single attack and can also be grabbed and used as a shield; however, as they are armed with guns, they can quickly kill the player as well. The principal aim of the game is to escape each level and killing enemies is not technically required in order to proceed.

The maze design is randomized and is slightly different on each play, making it impossible to memorize the layout of a level.

Play this game and release all that stimulation that you got from smoking a strong sativa.

5. Mario Kart 64

Nintendo is famous for making party-friendly games that are fun no matter your age. You have to wonder if the developers knew their prized creation would become a staple for weed-friendly play.  Players race around varying tracks trying to finish in first place.

Along the way, you get to pick up fun and even trippy (star power!) power-up items.  To add some extra fun, you can add some weed wagers into the equation. Those that place first get to take a hit from the bong; those that lose do not.

Of course, you could make the rules where you have to take as many hits as the place you finished in. This could be cruel, however, as the person in 8th place would hopefully have a high tolerance.

6. Skyrim

Another popular game, many people love playing the most recent release of the long-running series, The Elder Scrolls V. It is not without good reason; the mystic setting, dragons, and the tale of an underdog have cemented Skyrim’s place in the video game hall of fame. One weed-themed suggestion would be to take a hit from the bong every time a guard tries to take you to jail, every time you see a dragon or your companion gets downed.

7. Minecraft

Want a good game to play high, how about one where you get to build your own world, block by block? Let your artistic side run wild with abstract creations or go full survivalist with an underground bunker guarded by spiders. Whatever you want, Minecraft is your dominion. Make a point to hike to the highest spot in your world to watch the sunrise. Just do not piss off any Creepers along the way.

8. Journey

With no text or spoken dialogue, Journey is a unique, ethereal experience of a game. As you slide and glide through an alluring environment of deserts and ruins, you are free to explore your own route, the goal on par with the emblematic title. Enjoy your favorite indica and get cozy for this atmospheric, immersive adventure.

9. 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 do not have Rock Band, Guitar Hero is another great option. Being high and jamming out to some good music is a great recipe.

To spice it up you could add any number of different weed rules.

For example, you pick a score or a percentage and everyone in the band has to be above that number. If you achieve that goal, everyone gets 2 hits. If you do not achieve that goal, you get no hits. Alternatively, you can go head-to-head with a friend. The person with the highest score gets two tokes while the loser gets none.

10. Monument Valley

Talk about getting in the zone. The mobile puzzle platformer Monument Valley features stunning levels of impossible geometry alongside a dreamy soundtrack and minimalist art style. Equally minimalist in its story, the emphasis is on figuring out the clever puzzles of each monument’s dreamscape. Do not be surprised if you cannot pull yourself away from your computer while you play this high.

Weed games

1. Strip Choker

This game may sound crass and well, it kind of is. The object of this game is to test your friend’s ability to hold in a hit for as long as possible. First, everyone needs a joint to smoke from. Then everybody takes a hit of their joint and the first person to exhale or cough has to take off an article of clothing.

2. Bong Races

This game is very simple and sure to get everyone stoned. The idea is that everyone has a bowl or bong to smoke from. The bowls must have close to the same amount of weed. The idea is that the first person to finish their bowl is the winner.

3. Bong Pong

As you can guess, this game is like beer pong but with weed. The objective is to shoot a ping pong ball into a cup of beer. If the person makes the shot then they get to take a bong rip while the opponent has to take a bong rip and chug the cup of beer all before exhaling the smoke.

4. Hold Your Smoke (Taxi)

This game also tests your lung capacity. To play this game you take a puff from a joint and hold it in. Then you pass the joint to the person next to you, still holding your inhale. You cannot exhale the smoke until the joint makes its way back to you. If you exhale or cough before it comes back around then you are out.

5. Ash Bomber

To play this stoner game, you need to gather the following items:

  • A sheet of toilet paper, tissue paper, or paper towel.
  • A wide-mouthed jar (a cup will also work)
  • A joint or blunt
  • A rubber band
  • A penny

Take your type of paper and cover the opening of the jar. With the rubber band, secure it over the opening. Place the penny down in the middle of the paper product and light up a bowl. Each player takes a hit, holds it in, then scorches a hole in the paper with the joint and passes it on to the next person as they exhale. The player that makes the penny fall loses the game.

6. Wheel Of Weed Game

To play this game you will need some sort of spinner like from certain board games. You could try using a bottle to spin if you do not have a spinner. Next, label the spinner (or ground) with the following actions:

  • Truth
  • Dare
  • 420
  • Pass the toke
  • Smoke
  • Joke
  • Spin Again

The rest of the rules are up to you such as, how many turns each person needs to take or what happens if someone turns down a selected action.

7. Power Hour

This is another game that will definitely get you stoned. This game is also commonly played as a drinking game. Basically, you select a playlist of music that is already created on YouTube for the game Power Hour. The mixes are made up of music that only lasts for a certain amount of time. The times can interchange but typically people use mixes that change songs every minute for 60 minutes.

The objective of the game is to take a puff from a blunt or joint every time the song changes (every minute). This means you will take potentially 60 hits in an hour! This is a nearly impossible feat so naturally, the winner of the game is the person who lasts the longest without giving up.

8. Never Have I Ever

Just as the game is normally played but with weed; a person says, “never have I ever” then anyone who has done whatever that person said takes a puff from a joint or blunt. To make it more weed-specific, players are recommended to include weed-related experiences in the game.

9. Smokin’ Dice Game

To play this game you have to first buy a set of Smokin’ Dice. This is not a DIY game like most of the other listed games but you could try making your own set of dice if you do not own the Smokin’ Dice set. Playing the game is self-explanatory. You just roll the dice and do whatever they suggest. The four dice provide multiple actions such as, “You take a puff then do a dance in slow motion” or “Player of your choice take 2 tokes then laugh as hard as you can while spinning in a circle.”

10. Weed Jenga

This also requires you to own a game, but this is more custom than Smokin’ Dice. If you own a box of Jenga blocks, then grab a sharpie and write a set of stoner rules on them. List weed-specific tasks like, “take two hits,” or “take a bong rip and hold it in for 20 seconds.” After you have written some tasks down on the blocks, set up the game as if you were playing a normal game of Jenga. When someone removes a block that has a listed task then they must perform it or else they lose.

The person who knocks the tower down has to do something humiliating. What that is, depends on your group of friends.
