3 Awesome Board Games You Should be Baked Playing
If you want to smoke marijuana in your basement, I don’t care! I’m not going to get a search warrant and kick your door in. I think that’s foolish. – Bill O’Reilly
Thanks Bill, especially because a lot of us are actually smoking in our basements; and kicking down doors makes us paranoid as shit.
Sure, it might sound mild, even boring on paper (ha, get it?), but with the rise of the adult board game industry, incredible board games are coming out every day. Hell, even classics like Monopoly, Risk, and Catan are fun to play when friends get together.
But today we’re talking weed board games. These are games that are even better when you’re blazed (although don’t sleep on playing Monopoly baked out of your mind either).
Without further ado, here we go.
DIY Weed Board Games: Exploding Kittens
Exploding Kittens is one of the best card games ever made and it’s our first candidate for DIY weed board games.
While the game sounds a bit, well, off; it’s simple and anyone can learn. The object of the game is to not draw an exploding kitten card, if you do, you lose.
Thankfully you have cards in your hand to prevent that loss, like a defuse, “See the Future” cards which allow players to view the top three cards (and hopefully avoid an exploding kitten), and other interesting cards to mix up the game.
My all-time favorite card is the “Nope” which can be played at any time and negates any action someone played. So maybe you played a “See the future?” Well, if you get noped then you’re screwed. That is unless someone nopes your nope.
Yeah, this game gets crazy quick.
DIY Weed Board Games: Secret Hitler
You will lose friends from this game.
In one round of Secret Hitler, friends will see who’s the best liar amongst themselves, the most deceptive — and certainly who can shout the loudest. It’s a recipe perfect enough to tear apart lifelong friend groups, and that’s why it’s so great.
The game is split into two sides, Fascists and Liberals. There’s also one player who plays as a hidden Hitler who the liberals have to either stop or kill.
The Fascists know who’s on their side, but not the Liberals. Each turn players draw three cards — only revealed to themselves — and play one that will further the Fascist or Liberal agenda. It’s Mafia meets contemporary politics.
Sure, it sounds a bit confusing now (and confusing is never good for a group of stoners). But once you get the hang of it, you’re hooked.
Mall Freaking Madness
Now it’s time to end this list off with a BANG! And there ain’t no game that’s as banging as Milton Bradley’s Mall Madness.
All jokes aside, this game is a ton of fun. It doesn’t matter if the players are teenage girls who just the game for their 13th birthday or a 40-year old stoner with a neckbeard. In other words, this is the king of weed board games.
The goal of Mall Madness is to SHOP TILL YOU DROP and use your mom’s credit card to fulfill the six purchases on players’ buyer cards. Then, you have to make a mad dash back to your mom’s minivan to take the win.
Ok, it may be more of a guilty pleasure game, but Mall Madness will make for one night you’ll never forget.
