What makes a great house party or social event with friends? Laugh out loud moments, junk food, and weed of course! If, however, you are stumped when it comes to the best games to play when the party is flowing and the marijuana is on point, our selection of the best weed-related games will elevate your event to legendary status. Even if it doesn't, at least your guests will feel like they're on cloud nine.

Party game or video game, there's something for everyone

Don’t worry if the idea of sitting in front of a TV has you turned off from playing weed-themed games; we have collated a mix of regular party games (with a twist of course) and video games to be played solo or with a group. All that's left for you to do is decide which one you want to play first, and make sure there is plenty of cannabis to go around. Pot is all about having fun, so let the good times roll.

The Best Party Games To Play While Stoned

Without further ado, here are the best party games to play while in flight. Prepare yourselves for one of the best nights of your life.

In no particular order, each selection either features weed at its core, or as a forfeit that puts your stash to good use.

1. Movie time

Another game that has a ruleset determined by the party host. Pick a movie category of your choice—could be horror, romcom, or action. Then, decide on a suitable set of rules. If it’s a horror, everytime someone gets killed, all players have to take a drag. For a romcom, it could be every time someone on screen kisses another member of the cast. The choice is up to you.

For the hardcore among you, a fan favorite is the Friday The 13th game. While watching any of the movies, you have to take a hit when the following happens:

  • Jason appears on screen
  • Any of the cast get naked
  • There is a sex scene
  • When the iconic, suspenseful music kicks in
  • Anytime someone screams (either in the film or in real life)
  • Whenever a dead body is shown
  • Someone says “Jason”
  • No one has ever made it through all eleven films...

2. Bong pong

Who said you couldn't remake a classic? Standing opposite each other, two players must bounce a ping pong ball into a cup of beer or water. Should they succeed, they get to fire up a joint. As an additional bonus, successful shots can either be rewarded with a shot of beer, or that can be the forfeit for the losing player. Either way, both parties are going to be stumbling away from the table.

3. Medusa

In Greek mythology, looking at Medusa would turn you to stone. In this variation, looking at another player will get you stoned—close enough, right? With a joint in hand, all players start the game with their heads down, looking at their feet. After being counted in, all players must look up and stare wide-eyed at another player. If the person you are looking at is looking at someone else, you are OK. If they are looking directly at you, yell “MEDUSA!”. Both of you have to light your joint and take a toke. The game ends when all players have a lit joint, or everyone is too stoned to continue.

4. Straight-faced stoner

Never has one title contradicted itself so much. The chance of a straight-faced stoner is slim to none, so you can imagine how high everyone is going to be at the end. The premise is simple; once everyone is high, all participants have to keep a straight face. The first one to smile, laugh, or awkwardly snort through their nose has to do a penalty of the group’s choosing. That could be a hit from the bong, or much worse.

5. Strip Choker

No house party would be complete without some mild nudity. To support what is often a rite of passage for many young adults, strip choker is played almost exactly as it sounds.

As a gracious host, it’s worth checking that everyone's okay with potentially stripping down to their underwear. Assuming they are, the rules are simple: while sitting in a circle, a bong or dab rig is passed around. Each participant takes a hit.

The only requirement is to hold that hit in until the bong comes back around to you. If any player coughs and splutters between turns, an item of clothing comes off.

Now, how far will this game progress? That will be up to you.

6. Lungs

Here’s a classic game that’s familiar to every stoner you’ll meet. It goes by different names, depending on where you are in the world, but the rules remain the same.

Just like Strip Choker, Lungs is all about containing that precious smoke. If you’re smoking a joint, take a puff, hold it in, and pass the spliff around until it goes full circle back to you.

But unlike Strip Choker, the losers of this game won’t necessarily have to strip. Punishments can vary, from push-ups to a much-avoided shot of tequila. Also unlike strip choker, winners get a reward here. A special treat from the munchies table, perhaps?

Pro tip: keep your players to a maximum of five. You wouldn’t want anyone passing out or potentially developing health problems. You can also swap out a blunt or joint for a vaporizer to avoid that tar intake.

Another way to play this game is to add a timer to the equation. Whoever holds their hit the longest, wins.

7. Never Have I Ever

This one’s originally for the drinking crowd, but stoners are geniuses in their own right, and they’ve found a way to incorporate this into smoking sessions.

Never Have I Ever is easier to play when everyone has a glass of their own. So for a weed party, be sure you have enough herb to go around.

The mechanics are simple: everyone gathers around and a person says, “Never Have I Ever…”, then details a specific experience. If you’ve ever done said action or experience, you take a hit.

This game is usually sexually charged, but you can keep it wholesome. Or not.

The Best Video Games To Play While Stoned

The following are aimed at the gamers out there. For those of you who like to light up and zone in, these games are the perfect high accompaniment.

8. Limbo (Puzzle video game)

Whether it is the dynamic of the puzzles or the simple elegance of the game design, something about the greyscale approach is both haunting and mesmerising at the same time. Suitable for either indica or sativa strains, Limbo will be sure to open your mind to new possibilities and keep your guests interested as they try to predict your next wrong move. Take turns to play and remember, every time you fail a puzzle or die, it's time to take a toke.

9. Rock band

The internet is awash with memes of people rocking their heart out to Rock Band. While chasing internet fame may be a byproduct, nothing screams good times like a stoner trying to sing “Afroman — Because I Got High” while your mates try and play the remaining instruments. Anyone that fails the song or loses timing through laughter has to take a draw from their joint.

10. Mario Kart 64

If there is one thing Nintendo excels at, it’s making party-friendly games that are fun no matter your age. We don’t imagine for one second the developers thought their prized creation would become a staple of marijuana-themed antics. Players give it their all to come in first, except there is no forfeit this time around. Instead, a bonus. Those that place first get to take a hit from the bong; those that lose don’t. The only problem with this game is there is always one super-competitive friend. At very least, the higher they get, the worse they’ll perform...hopefully.

11. Skrym

Don’t worry if you haven’t “Fus Ro Dah’d” yet, because Skyrim will soon be released on every platform imaginable. It is not without good reason though; the mystic setting, dragons, and the tale of an underdog have cemented Skyrim’s place in the video game hall of fame. The rules can be as fast and loose as you like, but one suggestion would be taking a hit from the bong every time a guard tries to take you to jail or your companion gets downed. Oh, and you have to take a hit every time you see a dragon. Other than that, the rules are up to you!

12. Grand Theft Auto

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. To be honest, this game is just fun to play full stop, even if you're not stoned. Although, the dialogue does take on new meaning when baked and trying to play. As a fun mini-game, make sure you smoke everytime someone gets run over—you’ll thank us later.

13. Jackbox Party

Everyone loves a good interactive team game that’ll make you think. But if you mix in a bit (or a lot) of THC, things can get pretty interesting.

The Jackbox Party pack can easily turn a fairly dull smoking session into a rowdy bash you won’t forget in a long time. It includes a list of games to choose from, such as “You Don’t Know Jack”, a multiple-choice trivia game where you earn in-game money for answering correctly. You can also “screw” your opponents into answering wrongly, and therefore make them lose.

“Drawful” will test your drawing skills. You’re made to turn a silly phrase into an image. A list of answers, including the actual phrase, will then be presented, which the players need to make a guess from. You earn points for guessing the original phrase.

These are just two examples of what you’re getting into. And since this is a thinking person’s game, be sure you have a reliable sativa to keep that cognitive motor running.

14. Super Smash Bros.

Fighting games require a good amount of hand-eye coordination. However, if you’re stoned to the gills, that becomes a bit of a challenge.

But what’s great about Super Smash Bros. is that it’s also a treat for the senses. Action sequences can get boisterous in the best way possible. It’s colorful chaos that you’d only see elsewhere in a pinball machine.

It can be described as a wholesome version of Tekken with a few Final Fantasy elements. It also involves your favorite video game superheroes like Sonic the Hedgehog, Megaman, Pikachu, Ryu (of Street Fighter fame), and, of course, the Mario Bros. As one game reviewer brilliantly put it, it’s the “perfect digital action figure toy box”.

15. Call of Duty

Just like with the Grand Theft Auto series, what makes Call of Duty stand out is its realism. The first-person shooter position puts you right at the front line of the battlefield, and you’ll feel each hit as if the bullet pierced right through you.

Now, you may think it would be an absurd idea to play such a gory game while high, but you’d be surprised. Your coordination, aim, and ability to maneuver will be challenged. You think your server is lagging? No, that’s all thanks to your fried brain.

Turn it into a multiplayer affair to spice things up. But to level the playing field, have everyone smoke a fat one first. Then you’ll see who the real Call of Duty champ is.
