Rules for Playing Never Have I Ever

"Never Have I Ever" is also called "I Never" and "Have You Ever?" and starts when one person asks if anyone has done a specific thing. Anyone who has done the action mentioned is then playfully punished in some way, like losing a life in the game or taking a dare. In some versions of the game, players who have not done the activity are the ones to get punished.

Playing With Points

The point system is great for groups of kids or teens because answers lead to relatively harmless consequences.There are two ways to play using points:

  • Each player starts with 10 points (their ten fingers represent the points) and loses one point for every action they have done. When a player has no points left they are out of the game.
  • Set a time limit for the game and assign one point for every time someone can say "I have." The person with the least points at the end of the time is the winner.

Drinking Version

Adults over age 21 often play this as a drinking game with friends. Each time you can answer "I have," you must take a drink or a shot. Setting a time and drink limit for the game helps ensure no one gets too intoxicated.

Creative Consequences

If you want to make the game more interactive, use creative consequences such as:

  • Make players who have never done it imitate doing it
  • Have all players who have done it switch seats so they are all sitting next to each other
  • Eat a disgusting, uncommon, or super spicy snack

Get to Know Each Other

Question games like "Never Have I Ever" and "Would You Rather" and yes or no questions work great as icebreaker activities or for groups of close friends to learn fun facts about each other. Now that you've read all these suggestions you get a point because you can answer "I have" to the statement "Never have I ever read this article!" Now explore other games like Truth or Dare.
