Do you rank above average on the fun scale?
Never Have I Ever is one of the most popular party games right now, for a number of reasons. Firstly, it doesn't require anything to play. Secondly, it usually involves drinking, which instantly makes it a party classic. And thirdly, it allows people to get to know each other better and relate funny stories to each other, stories that the people telling them may even have forgotten themselves.
The premise is simple. One person makes a statement that "Never Have I Ever..." and then chooses something that they've never done, but which they suspect someone else playing the game has done. If no one else has done it either, the person who made the statement loses the round and must have a drink. This is designed to keep the game from getting out of hand with crazy suggestions that no one is likely to have done.
However, if anyone else has done that thing, they must admit to it and have a drink themselves. In cases where the scenario is exceedingly funny, they may be asked to regale the other players with a recounting of it. Score may be kept, but often isn't; it's primarily just a fun way for people to pass time together.
In this quiz, we'll ask you 35 basic Never Have I Ever questions. Simply agree (meaning you've never done it) or disagree (meaning you have done it) with the statements and we'll tell you if you're boring or not. Get ready to relive some hilarious, awkward, and possibly painful memories as we delve into some of your life's defining moments! And if you want to share any of them in the comments, feel free to do so, we'd love to hear your stories.
How to Play "Never Have I Ever"
Never have I ever played a game of “Never have I ever.” If you’re trying to get to know some new friends or a new boyfriend/girlfriend, this is a great way to go about it! What better way to get to know someone than by learning about their past experiences, no matter how trivial!
"Never Have I Ever" Drinking Game Variation Players sit in a circle and take turns making a statement of fact, starting with the phrase "Never have I ever..." and followed by something they've never done. For example, if you've never flown in a helicopter, you could say "Never have I ever flown in a helicopter."
After the statement is made, any players in the circle that have done that particular action before must take a drink!
The winner can either be the person who drank the most shots or the person with the most fascinating stories. But let's be honest, whenever there's good company and good drinks, everyone's a winner! Remember to drink responsibly.
"No Takers" Penalty Variation A particularly funny twist is the 'no takers' penalty. If a player makes a "Never have I ever..." statement and no one else there has done that action before, the player who made the statement must drink a shot!
This forces players to be more strategic with the statements they make and ensures that everyone will enjoy a few drinks throughout the game!
Non-Alcoholic Variation (Kid-Friendly) Any drinking game can be played without using alcohol and can still be just as fun!
In this variation, each player is given 10 bite-size pieces of candy, and when they have done the particular action mentioned, they must eat one of their pieces of candy. The player with the most candy left at the end of the game wins!
Whether you’re playing one-on-one or with a group, you probably need some “Never have I ever” questions to get started, so here’s a list to keep on hand!
