Rules for the Never Have I Ever drinking game

Although this site is an online version of the famous drinking game, here are the actual rules of the game should you want to play with your friends.


Participants must sit in a circle, each with a drink. The first player announces something he has never done, such as "Never have I ever eaten calamari". All players who have eaten calamari must take a sip of their drink. The amount to drink must be predetermined at the beginning of the game. It is recommended to play with beer, as shots can go down fast. One by one, each players anounces something that starts with "Never have I ever...".

In some variations of the game, all players must put up their 10 fingers. Every time the drink, they put done one finger. The game ends when someone has all fingers down.

Never have I ever can also be combined with card games, such as Kings.
