20 Games to Play When High

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

This is another video game that you can play with your friends or on your own. The popularity of this game is growing, and you have probably already heard of it. Few realize that it is even better stoned. In this game, you and up to 99 other players will be dropped off on a map by a blimp. Once your feet hit the ground, there is a scramble to gather weapons while simultaneously chopping down trees to build a fortress.

You will also be engaged in gathering wood, in addition to many other supplies that you will need to survive. The longer the game lasts, the smaller the map becomes. This results in a mad frenzy in which the different players attack one another while building forts at the same time.

The weed that you have been smoking will supercharge each of your guests to give the game everything that they have to survive the scramble and remain on the rapidly reducing map. The player who stays in the game the longest is the one who wins.

3. Pokemon Go

The game you enjoyed playing as a kid has only gotten bigger and better over the years. It makes its way onto this list of the top games that one should play while high mostly because of how popular it is.

According to Guinness World Records, Pokémon GO revenue was the highest ever of any mobile game in its first month, at $207 million. The revenue generated in that first month puts it in fifth-place in terms of the highest one-month revenue for a free-to-play game.

4. Ape Out

If you are alone and want to play a video game while high, Ape Out might be the single-player game for you. The player controls an ape that is trying to escape through a maze in which the enemies (humans) are trying to kill it. As the gorilla makes its way through the maze, it can grab human beings and use them as shields to evade the incoming gunfire. Alternatively, the gorilla can kill humans in its way.

The bottom line is that you, as the player controlling the gorilla, have to decide whether to kill the humans you lay your hands on, or you push them in front of you as shields. There is no chance that you will master the maze after playing the game several times because the layout of that maze automatically changes each time you start the game.

Play this game and release all that energy that you have got from the weed you have been consuming.

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 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.

2. Bong Races

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 cannabis. Choose a referee and start smoking! The first to finish the bowl is the winner.

3. Bong Pong

This weed game is similar to beer pong but the reward is a hit of bud. Players attempt to shoot 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 their opponent has to drink the beer.

4. 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 joint to the next person, exhale your smoke when the weed makes it back around to you. Easy as that. If you cannot hold your smoke, or you cough, before the joint gets back to you, you are 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 have 4 or more players, or if you really suck at holding your breath.

5. Ash Bomber

For this weed game, you will need the following supplies:

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

Cover the opening of the jar with the paper of your choice. Secure around the rim with the rubber band (like you would a sploof). Set the penny in the center of the tissue paper and light up your bud. Each person takes one toke, 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. Like making them roll the next joint.

6. Wheel Of Weed Game

This one is perhaps the most prep-heavy. To make this work you will need something that spins easily like a spinner from a board game such as Twister or The Game of Life. If you do not have any spinners then you could try spinning a bottle on the ground. Label the spinner or the ground with the following tasks:

  • Smoke
  • Joke
  • Pass the Toke
  • 420
  • Truth
  • Dare
  • Spin Again
  • Anything else you would like to add

Take turns spinning and performing the task specified. You can choose a set number of rounds, play until the weed is gone.

7. Power Hour

While not technically a game, Power Hour is a great way to get seriously stoned and have fun. You will need a bunch of your favorite music and a bunch of weed so there is 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, which is something that may get harder and harder as the hour goes on. Whenever the song changes, everyone has to take a hit from whatever weed is nearby.

Dancing and revelry are encouraged.

8. Never Have I Ever

This is another classic and requires a reasonable amount of cannabis. Choose someone to go first in the group. That individual says, “Never have I ever” followed by an action or activity. For instance, they may say “Never have I ever gotten too high from an edible.” Every member of the group who has been super stoned from an edible has to take a toke.

9. Smokin’ Dice Game

Smokin’ Dice is a quick and easy way to have some fun and get high at the same time. First, you must purchase a set of Smokin’ Dice. Once you have the 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.” There is no long list of rules, just plenty of stoned fun.

10. Weed Jenga

This requires a bit of planning and prep beforehand. You will need a permanent marker and a box of Jenga blocks. Write rules on some or all of the blocks. These can say things similar to the Smokin’ Dice including how many hits to take, silly actions to perform, and etc. When you have 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 is a jumping-off point, but you can make up your own rules to make the game more interesting.
