The Ultimate Guide to a Strategic Game of ‘Never Have I Ever’

by 5 years ago

Anyone who has done what the first player has not must take a drink, (not a sip, pussy). The game then continues in the same fashion, moving clockwise. To ensure your group makes it out of the game vomit-free, many play with ten fingers raised (drinks can sit on your lap or by your side.) And every time a player has done something that’s been mentioned, they must take their drink and drop one finger until, eventually, all ten fingers are down. When this happens, you're out of the game.

The last remaining player is then crowned most sexually inexperienced and will be mocked for the remainder of the night—as they should be.

The beauty of this game is that it reveals fascinating facts about its participants. And when attractive women are involved, you need to get strategic. Sure, you still want everyone to get buzzed, but you also want to know if you have a shot with the cute brunette across the table, right?

Bros, let’s do both: Here are the ten best questions to ask—and what they reveal—when you play Never Have I Ever with a group of gorgeous women and some bros.

Additional Rule (Recommended): If nobody has done what a player mentions, the player who uttered the statement must drink. This will kibosh any shitty, ineffective statements by participants and will force them to get more creative and strategic on their next turn.

Disclaimer: Assuming you're playing an honest game, tell the truth. If you have done any of the below, skip to the next suggestion. Liars can easily ruin this game.
