How Do You Play Never Have I Ever With Kids?

For the classic version of the game you don’t need anything except a list of questions. The aim of the game is just to have fun and maybe learn something new about the other players. Get ready for lots of giggles!

Girls holding up fingers for a Never Have I Ever Game

Invite players to hold out both hands with all fingers and thumbs outstretched. One player reads out a Never Have I Ever question, so for example, “Never ever have I eaten a lemon.”  Any player who has eaten a lemon, must fold down one finger or thumb. You can choose one player to read out the questions or take it in turns.

Continue playing and asking questions until the first player has all finger and thumbs folded down. A player is out when they have folded down all their fingers and thumbs. The last player with fingers outstretched is the winner.

Of course, some questions have stories attached to them, so encourage kids to tell their stories. Seriously, aren’t you curious to know what kind of prank call your kid made? Or maybe not!

Of course, there are many variations of this game to keep things fun. Try these!

Different Ways of Playing Never Have I Ever For Kids

Playing with candy

Each player is given 10 pieces of candy. Play as before but players must eat one piece of candy instead of folding down a finger.

Playing with Water Balloons

This is a fun one for summertime birthday parties. Each player is given 10 water balloons! Play as usual, but everyone who has done it, throws a water balloon at someone else.

Worried about the impact of balloons on the environment? Use a water blasters instead. You are out when your water is gone.

True or False

This one is a fun twist on the game. Players take it in turns to read out “Never have I ever” statement. The other players must guess whether they think the statement is true or not.

Each player that guesses correctly gets a point.

Playing As Teams

You can also play as teams. This is great for large gatherings and birthday parties. Divide into two teams. Each player gets 5 points. A player on one team reads the first never have I ever statement. If anyone on the other team has done it, then their team loses points as follows.

  • For 1 person the team loses 1 point.
  • When 2 people have done it, then their team loses 4 points.
  • If 3 then 6 points

And so on.

What Are The Rules For Never Have I Ever?

  • Have fun
  • Keep it light, particularly when using the questions in the confession category. Don’t use those questions if a positive answer will upset you.
  • Each player starts with 10 points.
  • Each player loses a point for each never have I ever statement they have done.
  • If you want to make the game competitive, continue asking questions until all the players except 1 are out of points; the player with points is the winner. Or switch it around so that the person who loses their points first wins.

Never Have I Ever Generator

If you run out of questions, then an on-line generator can be helpful. The following sites produce random questions suitable for kids. Both sites have the option of adult and “dirty” questions, so I would suggest that an adult use the question generator.
