Waiting Game is another Capulator creation. It is a cross between FPOG (Fruity Pebbles OG) x MAC (Miracle Alien Cookies). The smells and flavors it gave screamed Sativa. Yet, the high felt more like an Indica one. Nonetheless, I enjoyed the smoke and the high so, let’s break it down!

Waiting Game

Looks & Presentation

Looks wise the Waiting Game was a true beauty. Every bud was heavily coated in a thick layer of trichomes. The colors of the buds consisted of a light green with a dark purple mix. They also had bright fire orange hairs sporadically covering the buds. There is no denying that this is a MAC cross just based on the looks alone. I could easily give this strain a 5 out of 5 in the looks and presentation category.

Smell & Frehsness

If you are an earth and pine type of person then this Waiting Game is for you. It smelled exactly like Jack Herer with a little funk to it. Once broken down, the smell amplified. It become more sweet, more piney and more musty. I must say this is the first Sativa leaning strain that actually made my mouth water. 9 times out of 10 I normally get nauseous from the smell. It was different with this Waiting Game though. Instead of wanting to get rid of it as quickly as possible, I wanted to break it down and smoke it as soon as I could. The buds as well, were perfectly cured too which indicated that this baby was going to smoke great. A definite 5 out of 5 in the smell and freshness category.


The taste was an exact replica of the smell. Super sweet up front with a mild piney finish. Made it more refreshing than anything. It reminded me a lot of an Arnold Palmer drink to be honest. Or, imagine going into the woods and inhaling a big breath of fresh air through your mouth. It was the perfect mixture of sweet and piney terps that gave the smoke a superb taste. For a guy that truly despises those flavors, this strain earned its 5 in the taste category.


The high was the cherry on top. Seeing as I was visiting California when I purchased this, I figured it would be perfect for the amusement parks. I was hoping that by smoking it while out, I would get that extra boost of energy. I couldn’t have been more correct. Except, not only did I get that burst of energy but, it left me more relaxed than anything. I usually get a little paranoia from strains like these. However, that wasn’t the case with the Waiting Game. This was the type of high I needed on my vacation. It was easy to give this strain a 5 out of 5 in the high category.
