Things to Do for a Stoner Stuck Inside
We bet your thinking “Most stoners are already used to doing nothing in their house when they light up, so what are we going to learn here?” Look, we are facing something completely new and we might have to be stuck inside for a while. Not everyone is a stay at home stoner who veg’s out all the time. Some stoners are super active and aren’t used to being stuck inside!! I mean look at all those hippies out there Hoola-hooping the day away and hiking around all them mountains!…lookin’ at you Red Rocks lot. (By the way, can we just say that we really dislike the misconception about stoners being lazy?! I mean come on its 2020, weed is basically legal and lots of people partake now!!)
Anyways, back to the point of this blog. We sat down and thought about it for a while and came up with a list of some things to do for any stoner stuck inside!
Play a board game:
Bring your childhood back with a board game. It’s 2020 we don’t have to play Shoots and Ladders or Hi-Ho! Cherry-O anymore. There are tons and tons of great board games out there for adults from single player to groups of 8! This is the perfect activity to do for a stoner stuck inside!
The Fox in the Forest – Foxes are known to be little tricksters and in this two-player card game it’s is all about tricking your opponent and winning more tricks than them! But if you become too much of a trickster, you’ll lose the game like a villain in a fairy tale. This game is easy to pick up and play and your typical round lasts about 30 minutes. With 33 Cards and 17 Tokens, this card game will eat up a lot of time and best of all, Its’ hella fun! Pick it up from your local card game shop. We’d recommend Enchanted Grounds.
The Binding of Isaac: Four Souls – Based on the popular indie game The Binding of Isaac created by Edmund McMillen. With over 2.5 million dollars backing this project on Kickstarter Four Souls came to light in late 2018.
This game is not for kids. 2-4 Players take turns using loot cards and items to kill monsters, by doing this you can win more items, loot cards, and even Souls! The first player to reach a total of 4 Soul cards wins! Betrayal, bartering, and trading are strongly encouraged. For those of you who have played the indie game…this is probably the best card game you can play!
Dungeons and Dragons 5e – Dungeons and Dragons has been around since 1974 and is arguably the first true roleplaying game. A game that garnered so much attention that it was protested in the ’80s and groups such as BADD (Bothered About Dungeons and Dragons) were formed. It was even claimed that “The game is an occult tool that opens up young people to influence or possession by demons” by a church leader named Jon Quigley. Much time has passed since all the controversy and D&D has been featured in lots of pop culture like E.T., Community, The Big Bang Theory, and most well-known, Stranger Things.
Start a campaign with a handful of friends and go on an epic adventure using only your creativity, imagination, a rule book, and some dice. Countless hours of fun and adventure are to be had as you create your own unique character and immerse yourself into unique worlds. Roll playing is highly encouraged and it’s a great way to escape all the real-world problems right now. Check out Roll20®.net for all your “Social Distancing” needs.
Cards Against Humanity – We all know it, we’ve all played it, and we all could use a laugh like this now… This game is especially great with their Weed Pack! Did you know you can download a free version of this game? Check it out here!
Exploding Kittens – From the hilarious cynical mind of Matthew Inman who created the comic The Oatmeal and game designer Elan Lee, who was a former CCO at Xbox, formed the Tabletop game company Exploding Kittens. They launched a Kickstarter campaign with the initial goal of $10,000 to get the game funded, but by the end of the campaign, they raised over $8million making it the most-backed game of all time on Kickstarter.
This card game is probably about one the funniest games out there and we really don’t want to ruin it for you, so all we are going to say is there isn’t much to this game other than it being a “highly strategic kitty-powered version of Russian Roulette.”
Is your favorite gym or yoga studio closed? Well, ours is. So, we have to stay active at home for the sake of well-being. What can we do at home that will help us stay active and keep us going? We have a few ideas.
Yoga is great for your posture, joints, health, and overall mind-body wellbeing. It’s not just for hippies, it’s a great daily practice to get into. Hatha is the most basic form of Yoga that we use today combining a series of basic movements with breathing exercises.

Spring is here! Now is a great time to start up that Spring Cleaning and reset your space for better Feng Shui!

What makes this game super fun is not only the Cross-platform online gaming, multiple beautify created arenas and non-stop action.

Turn any drinking game into a smoking game. Just replace the drinking rules with a massive water pipe hit or fatty dab! We have a shortlist of games below that you can easily play by smoking down instead of drinking!
Beer Pong | Toke Pong – Fill up 10 16oz cups with water a quarter of the way full and arrange them in a pyramid formation on each side of an 8-foot long table. Teams take turns throwing a ping-pong ball into the other team’s cup. Once someone has made it in a cup, remove it from the table and then that team must now take a hit or dab. The team that successfully removes all cups from the table wins!
Movie Smoking Game – Before watching your favorite flick come up with a list of 3 or more keywords that are said in the movie. Also pick at random a few things that might happen, like someone falls over or an explosion happens. Every time a keyword or key event happens, take a hit or dab! Not feeling that creative? This website has a ton of movies already set up for you!
Stoner Jenga – Normal Jenga but with funny challenges written on each Jenga blog. Start out by creating a losing rule like; the loser has to take a 1g dab or loser has to sit out of the smoke circle next go-around. After the losing rule has been put into place, get creative and write down some funny challenges, truth or dare, stoner challenges, hits or waterpipe rips and have some fun! The person who knocks over the Jenga stack must do the pre-determined losing rule.
