  • Want to beat quarantine boredom? Here are games to play while high.
    COVID-19 has managed to sneak its way into every aspect of our lives, including the time-honored tradition of getting a bunch of friends together, playing games, and getting high. However, with stay-at-home directives in place for most locales across the country, having friends over for a stony game night is an unnecessary health risk for you, your friends, and loved ones. The nights that revolved around a ping pong ball for a game of bong pong are suspended for the foreseeable future. But with a little bit of imagination and some creativity, you can easily adapt some of the classic stoner games to play with friends on remote platforms. Or, you could just forget about your friends and have a game night all to yourself. Whatever you decide, keep this list handy for games that would be fun to play while high.  Stoney movie night First, make sure that you and your invitees have a Chrome extension called Netflix Party, which allows everyone to watch the same movie at the same time. You can pick a classic stoner movie like Dazed and Confused or The Big Lebowski, but any movie will do. The only preparation you'll need to do is to agree on the rules beforehand. For example, if you choose an action movie, you could light up every time the hero shoots someone. Or for a rom-com, when the main characters kiss, players must take a hit. The options are endless.  Straight-faced stoner This classic game can easily be adapted to play on a remote platform like Skype or Zoom, and the rules are really simple. Once everyone is good and high, all participants have to keep a straight face. That's it. The first one to break has to take a penalty of the group's choosing.  Never have I ever Another one of the simple and adaptable party games that is perfect for getting together in a remote fashion. To begin, pick someone to go first who will make a statement like, “Never have I ever...eaten a kumquat,” for example. Anyone who has eaten a kumquat has to toke up. The next person makes a “never have I ever…” statement, and the game goes on from there.  High video games Pretty much any video game will do, and you can do this activity with friends or go solo. Should you decide to have a sesh and go it alone, pick a visually stunning ... read more
