How to Play Never Have I Ever

There are two ways to play Never Have I Ever. You can play it as a Non-Drinking Points Game or a Drinking Game.

Think about the ages and personalities of the people you are playing with. Pick the version that everyone will enjoy the most!

Remember that it’s fine to make people sweat a little, but no one should feel uncomfortable.

Keep things light and fun so that everyone has a good time!

- Non-Drinking Points Game Version

Did you know that Ten Fingers is another name for Never Have I Ever? At the start of the game, everyone raises their ten fingers, equivalent to ten points!

To play the Non-Drinking Points Game, follow the instructions below:

1. Sit down in a circle

Firstly, you need to gather everyone around and sit in a circle. If you’re playing with a small group, you can have people sit on the floor.

Chairs might be more comfortable if you’re playing with a large group.

2. Hold your fingers up

Once everyone is sitting in a circle, tell them to hold up their ten fingers. All players have ten points at the start of the game.

3. Decide who will start

The person who starts the game can be chosen randomly (e.g., by a round of rock-paper-scissors), or you can take turns in clockwise order.

4. Take it in turns to make a statement

Once someone has been chosen to start, that person makes a statement beginning with the phrase “Never have I ever…”.

For example, “Never have I ever been to Europe” or “Never have I ever had a pet.”

5. Put a finger down for each statement that applies to you

If the statement is true for you, you put one of your fingers down. For example, if I say, “Never have I ever been to Europe” and you have been to Europe, you would put one finger down.

6. The first person to lose all their points loses the game!

The game aims to be the last person with any points remaining. So, if you put down your last finger, then you lose!

You can also play the game so that the winner is the first person to lose all their points.

Pro Tip: Play as many times as you want or if you’re going to speed things up, start playing with just five fingers.

- Drinking Game Version

The second way of playing Never Have I Ever involves alcohol. If you’re of legal drinking age and plan to play this version of the game, please drink responsibly!

We recommend playing this version with beer, wine, or spirits. If you don’t drink alcohol, you can use soft drinks as a substitute.

1. Sit down in a circle

As in the non-drinking version, you need to gather everyone around and have them sit in a circle.

If you’re playing with a small group, you can have people sit on the floor. Chairs might be more comfortable if you’re playing with a large group.

2. Get some drinks

Secondly, make sure that everyone has a drink. It’s up to you how much alcohol is in each glass. Always remember to drink responsibly!

3. Decide who will start

The person who starts the game can be chosen randomly (e.g. by a round of rock-paper-scissors), or you can take turns in clockwise order.

4. Take it in turns to make a statement

The player who starts the game makes a statement beginning with the phrase, “Never have I ever…”. For example, “Never have I ever been drunk" or “Never have I ever had a one-night stand.”

5. Drink for each statement that applies to you

If the statement is true for you, then you take a drink. For example, if I say, “Never have I ever been drunk” and you have been drunk, then you would take a sip of your drink.

6. The first person to finish their drink loses the game!

The aim of the game is to be the last person with any drink remaining. So, if you finish your drink, then you lose!

You can also play the game so that the winner is the first person to finish their drink.

Additional Never Have I Ever Rules

Want to take your game of Never Have I Ever to the next level? Here are a few tips to make your game more fun and exciting for everyone:

1. Set Ground Rules

Some people might feel uncomfortable talking about sensitive topics such as anything sexual or too dark, so decide which topics are off the table from the start.

No one wants questions to go too far that people get upset. This game is about bringing friends closer, not breaking them apart!

Remember to keep things light and fun at all times!

2. Choose Simple Questions

The simpler your questions are, the more chances you have that one or more players would have done it already.

Even if your questions are simple, they can still lead to totally unexpected stories!

For example: “Never have I ever gone on a blind date.”

3. Try to Make your Questions Funny

Choose questions that will make you and your friends laugh at yourselves. Pick situations that range from the weirdly funny to the absolutely absurd.

It’s hilarious when you find out that your friends can relate to one of your crazy questions because they have done it themselves!

For example: “Never have I ever accidentally entered someone else’s house because I was too drunk.”

4. Ask for Details

Some answers are too bizarre or surprising that you need to know their story. Take your time and ask for the details! It’s exciting to hear stories that you have never heard before.

If things get too hot, quickly move on to the next player to keep the party mood going!

For example: “Never have I ever jumped out of a moving vehicle.”

5. Play to Win

There are strategies to increase your chances of winning. Some may not be that fair but remember that it’s a drinking game.

One example is if a guy is playing with a coed group, he can give questions that would apply more to girls.

For example: “Never have I ever gotten a manicure or pedicure.”

It’s a surefire way to avoid drinking. Just don’t be surprised if others fight back in the next round. It’s all just for fun anyway!
