There is nothing like a drinking game to get the party rolling, and “Never Have I Ever” surely delivers the fun and laughs-along with the secrets. All you need is a group of friends (or strangers), alcoholic drinks, and your fingers.
Also called “I Never,” “1054 Fingers,” and “I Have Never,” this popular game starts with the players sitting in a circle and holding their ten fingers up. The rules are rather simple-just as we like them. A player says a statement starting with the phrase “Never have I ever.” For example, the statement may be “Never have I ever danced on a tabletop.” In response to this, anyone who has danced on top of a table before must drink and put a finger down. The play moves along with the next player making a new statement. The game reaches an end when a player ends up with all fingers down. This person is the loser of this drinking game. Needless to mention, things can get quite personal and revealing. Sex is usually a hot topic.
There are different variations of “Never Have I Ever.” According to one variation, players don’t use their fingers; they simply drink to announce that they have done what is stated. This game is also sometimes incorporated into other drinking games, like Kings.
