Bongs are bubbling, dabs are sizzling, and smoke clouds the room. The air smells either dank or sweet, and your appetite may be at a peak. It’s 4-20, a date celebrated by stoners all across the globe.
That’s right! Weed Day is finally here. An untold amount of people will light up to ring in the green holiday cheer.
If you think smoking joint after joint or bong hit after bong hit sounds monotonous then:
a) Maybe you should try some edibles.
b) Find a fun smoking game to play with your pals
Huh? There’s games to play with pot? Well, of course. Marijuana has many uses. Hemp fibers and stalks from certain sativa plants can be used to produce clothing, construction materials, paper, bio-fuel, plastic composites, and more. But that’s a whole ‘nother story. Let’s get back to the smoking games. What fun games can I play on 4-20?
Chicago (Smoke Holding)
This is a good game to play with a couple of friends if you’re smoking a joint, a blunt or a phillie. You can play this game with a bong or a bowl as well, or get dabbie if that’s your thing.
The objective of the game is to take your hit and hold it in until it’s your turn to smoke again. The smoker typically takes only one hit, but you can double the amount if you’re really that daring (though not recommended, especially for cocky, novice stoners).
Last Stoner Standing
You may need to strap yourself in for this one. Grab a buddy or two and a whole ounce of the stickiest nugs you can wrangle. Find a cool location, preferably indoors with snacks, a refrigerator, a TV, a sofa, an Easy-Bake Oven, you get the picture.
The objective is to smoke as much pot as you can with your buddies. If you’re too high to compete, you’re eliminated from the competition. Only the strongest stoners can make it!
The last person to take a hit before the clock strikes midnight wins! It’s like a Cinderella story, except instead of a glass slipper and a fairy godmother, you have a sh*t load of weed to smoke.
If you’ve ever played “beer pong” then you know where I’m going with this one. Find a table, some friends, a few ping-pong balls, a decent amount of pot, and a bunch of plastic cups half full of water or beer or whatever.
The objective is to throw the ping pong ball into the other player’s cup. If that ping-pong successfully enters that cup then the person on the opposing team must take a hit from a bong, hold it in and then chug whatever is in that cup.
The Movie Game
If you’re a movie buff who likes to toke then you’ll dominate this game. If your smoking buddies are into movies then this one might get extremely competitive very quickly.
How do I play “The Movie Game” you ask? When you’re blazing it up with your pals, someone will call out the name of a movie to start the game. If you’re in possession of the smoking instrument (blunt, bowl, joint, etc.), you must name an actor from that movie or you’re eliminated from the game and will not get passed the pot until the next round.
If you call out the correct actor from that movie then you’re still in the running. But then, the next person who takes a hit needs to name another movie that that actor appeared in. If that person can’t come up with the right movie then he can’t take another hit until the next game.
If that person does come up with a movie title then the next person needs to name a different actor who appeared in that specific movie.
This goes on and on until there is one stoned film buff left smoking. Sound confusing? I’ll break it down for you again with two stoners I made up: Rad & Chad.
For Example: Rad takes a hit, calls out “The Shining.” Chad grabs the blunt, takes a puff and says, “Jack Nicholson.” Rad smiles, grabs that burning blunt, and says, “Easy. He appeared in The Departed.” Chad quickly responds, “Leonardo DiCaprio,” grabs the blunt, takes a hit and hands it back to his friend. Rad thinks for a while and a grin appears on his chubby face, “Titantic.” Chad is stumped! “Damn, man. I quit. Who even talks about that movie anymore? Sh*t’s old!”, says the disgruntled Chad still unable to accept defeat. Rad wins. Oh, yes. Rad wins.
Take a hit every time Trevor Noah from The Daily Show mentions Donald Trump (The Trump-Trevor Smoking Game)
Prepare to get so lifted that Neil Armstrong would say damn. I’m talking “so high you’re on Mars” type sh*t. This guy mentions Trump so much it isn’t funny (literally). If you play this game, prepare to get high off your ass.
Yesterday, I told my editor “lol Trump took over The Daily Show.” I didn’t tell him what I meant by that statement. I didn’t mean that President Trump has successfully concocted a covert government takeover of our beloved Comedy Central fake news program. No, not at all. It’s just that, every time I turn on The Daily Show, it’s Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump, Trump.
Sound a little tired and repetitive? Now, you know how I feel.
Alright, back to the game. In order to play this game, you must watch an episode of The Daily Show featuring Trevor Noah. He started on the show on September 28, 2015. Donald Trump announced his intention to run for US President on June 16, 2015. So, any episode featuring Trevor will do.
Oh yeah, you’ll need a whole lot of weed for this one. Pack the heck out of your piece, roll up that J, and smoke that bong. Every time Trevor says the name “Trump” or “Donald Trump,” or even at all makes reference to the forty-fifth President of the USA then take a hit.
Wanna know how to find this show online, so you can play this game right now? Just click here or just go scrounging through YouTube. Either way will do the trick. It won’t be hard finding multiple “Trump-Trevor” videos.
Red, white and blue rolling papers are preferred for this occasion. The only other option is bright orange rolling papers or orange-scented blunt wraps.
