How To Play Never Have I Ever

Hopefully it goes without saying that there’s no need for game formalities at all.  Just pose a question or two to your nearest and dearest and see what happens!

But if you fancy going all in and embracing things game style, here’s a few ideas for how:

Bingo Challenge

Print or share either or both of our free Never Have I Ever Bingo cards.  Then sit back and see which of your friends, colleagues, classmates or family members has the most to reveal.  If you want, you could always soften the blow for the winner with a little prize for each line or indeed full card!

Classic (Drinking) Game

It’s the classic party game!  Discover the cringeworthy festive truths about your closest friends and family.

Make paddles for every player from our free printable template below.  Take it in turns to read out the questions.  Players then twist their paddle to reveal their answer!  (Traditionally those admitting to the ‘crime’ take a sip of their drink as punishment.)

Last Man Standing

A less alcoholic version of the party game!

Everyone stands up to start.  Again take it in turns to read out from the question list below.  Anyone who answers yes to the statement described sits down and is out of the game.  Continue until there is only one person remaining on their feet.  They of course are the winner and can take pride in their lack of embarrassing accomplishments!

Never Have I Ever Child Wrapped

Gift Exchange

Combine Never Have I Ever with Secret Santa!

Everyone brings along a wrapped gift that is suitable for all. (Agree budget and whether going funny, nice, tacky, etc in advance.)

Then play rounds of Last Man Standing above.

EITHER: The winner (last person standing) each time chooses a gift from the selection.  If wrapped, they unwrap it.  They then decide whether to keep the gift and retire from the game or leave it in the selection and rejoin the action. Continue until all gifts have been claimed.

OR: Start with everyone placing the gift they brought on the floor in front of them.  When the question is asked, instead of sitting down if you answer ‘I have’, move one place to the right.  Once everyone has shuffled around the circle accordingly, the question caller chooses whether to open the gift in front of them or take it and retire from the game (whether gift is already unwrapped or not).  The person to their left then becomes the question caller and play continues until all gifts have been claimed.

  • Fold each smaller A5 sheets in half.
  • Turn the sheets over and place a lollipop stick in the middle of one side, with half of the stick pointing out the bottom.
  • Fasten in place with glue or sellotape.  Then seal the two sides of the A5 sheet together with more glue or tape to create the paddle.
