Never Have I Ever is a popular game that's often played by teenagers at sleepovers or adults who are trying to get to know one another better. It's often paired up with a certain variety of beverages, although it definitely doesn't always have to be. The idea is that one player will make a statement about themselves such as, "Never Have I Ever kissed a cat on the mouth," and the other players will volunteer whether or not they've done it. Generally speaking, if the players have done something, they will either put down one of the ten fingers they're holding up, or take a sip from their beverage, or something similar.
There are, of course, millions of different ways to play, because each group of players comes up with their own rules that fit themselves and their circumstances!
While it might not be quite as easy for a person to get to know someone through Never Have I Ever without revealing some personal information of their own as it is in the game of Truth or Dare, it's definitely still a fun way to break the ice with friends - or more than friends, even, as it can get pretty spicy along the way.
