How To Play Never Have I Ever

The game starts with someone saying, “Never have I ever…” followed by something you have never done before. The other players will then tell if they have done it or not.

For example: Never have I ever ruined someone else’s vacation.

There are two ways to play “Never have I ever”. Depending on your age and what you are comfortable with, you can select the game that works for you and your friends:

1. The (non-drinking) points game

The original way to play “Never have I ever…” is to gather in a circle. Then somebody says something that they haven’t done. If you have not done it, you earn a point, and if you have, you don’t. Then the next person says something they haven’t done “Never have I ever…” and so on. You can keep a record of your points on your fingers or draw circles and cross them out on a piece of paper.

The game goes on until you want it to stop. Then you can then count your scores, and whoever has the most wins. If only one person has done the thing from the question, they are usually asked to tell the story of how it occurred.

The drinking game

Another way of playing is with sips of a drink rather than points. The game starts with one person saying, “Never have I ever…”, followed by something you’ve never done before. If other players have done it, they take a drink. Then it goes to the next person. And they say, “Never have I ever…” and round and round it goes.

There isn’t really a winner, but there are unquestionably people who end up drinking a lot more than others. Usually, the game stops when people get too drunk, or the questions get too uncomfortable.

If only one or two people take a drink, usually the group will ask for details or a story. But if no one drinks, the person who said “Never have I ever…” drinks.

No matter which version you choose, keep things relatively light and fun. No one has fun when the questions get too awkward, harsh, or embarrassing.
