Playing games while high has been a long standing tradition in the cannabis community, and is also a great way to enjoy some of the more energizing, sativa dominant strains with your friends.
With Christmas just around the corner, and the weather getting colder and colder with every passing day, there is no better time than now to host house parties and get thoroughly stoned with your mates. And what better way to enjoy good weed, cold weather, and good company than with exciting and fun games.
So if you are looking for the perfect indoor games to play on your Christmas or new years eve party, you’re in the right place. In this blog we’ll be telling you about some of the best indoor games you can play at your house party, and the only rule is that everyone is supposed to be thoroughly baked.
The only question is, are you ready to have some fun?
A true classic, Lungs is perhaps the oldest stoner game around, and has been played for several decades now. Don’t worry if you’ve never heard this name before, because this game has several of them, though the basics remain the same.
So imagine you and your friends are sitting on a couch, with some nice and trippy music playing in the background. One of you takes a hit from a joint, holds his breath and passes it to the next person who then does the same. The joint makes a full circle and returns to the first person.
Whoever exhales (or coughs) first loses the round, and the one who can keep it in the longest is the winner. Sound familiar? Of course it does.
Now it’s up to you and your friends to decide whether to penalize the loser by daring them to do embarrassing stuff, or reward the winner with money, prizes, or a special treat from the munchies table.
The game can even be played with a bong, though it is practically impossible for someone to hold their breath long enough for 5 or 6 people to light a bong, take a hit, and pass it. Which is why, it would be best if each of your friends has their own bong. Or, you could simply start timing people, but that becomes impossible if you get too stoned.
A word of advice, we strongly recommend not playing with more than 5 people. Why? It’s simple really, a larger number of participants can result in a risk of someone holding their breath for an extra long period, which is hazardous to health.
On the other hand, it might be best if you used vaporizers to play this game instead of a joint. Holding in the smoke for too long can allow additional amounts of tar to gather in your lungs, and is something you want to avoid.
2. The Floor Is Lava
The game we have all been playing since we were kids. But with the added excitement and merriment which only comes from smoking weed.
As you probably know, the game is quite easy to set up. Randomly place cushions, chairs, pillows etc all over your room. Players then have to move about the room on these objects, making sure not to touch the floor.
And while touching the floor used to “kill” the player back then, that does happen now. Instead, the person who does lose his/her balance and falls on the ground now has to suffer a penalty. Which could be anything really. Maybe they have to bring the remaining players a snack.
Our advice is to take a hit every time someone falls into the lava. Not only will this make the game so much more intense, it will also help everyone get high.
3. Weed Pong
The best games you can play while high are in fact, improved versions of the classics you’ve been playing for a long long time.
Just like beer pong, Weed Pong is also quite a simple game to understand. But playing it while high on premium indica dominant strains is quite another story.
Even though the cup is only a few feet away, trying to get a tiny ping pong ball into it is not that easy. For one thing, the table between you becomes extra long, and depending on the strain you’re smoking, can even become full of additional obstacles you have to overcome.
The winner, the person to get the ball into the cup, deserves a reward. This can be a glass of beer, or even a hit from the joint. Believe us, you and your weed pong partner will be exhausted, and quite happy to stumble towards the couch, sweating all over the place and happier than you have been in a long long time.
4. Poker face
Now that you and your friends are considerably baked, this is the game to play.
It’s quite simple to play really. All you guys need to do is make sure that all you are well and thoroughly stoned, and then start looking at each other with a serious face.
The first person to laugh, giggle, or even smile loses the round, and must now suffer a penalty. What that is depends totally on you and your friends. It could be an embarrassing dare, or you could make that person powersmoke a joint (smoke an entire joint in a limited number of minutes).
5. Never Have I Ever
We saved the best for last. With the year almost ended, it is now time to look back on all your accomplishments and successes, especially the crazy ones.
Even though the game is primarily a drinking one, it can be quite easily played with weed as well. If you don’t know how the game goes, it requires all participants to sit in a circle. Each person would then make a statement about something they haven’t done in their entire life. For example, “Never have I ever, gone skinny dipping”.
People who have been skinny dipping, will then have to take a hit. The game begins innocently enough, but can quickly progress as people start making crazier and crazier statements. But we guarantee that the entire group will be well and thoroughly stoned by the end of the night.
