We’ve all had to come up with never have I ever questions before, right?
As a classic college party game “Never Have I Ever” (or “I’ve Never” or “10 Fingers”, depending on where you’re from) ranks up there as one of the best ice-breaking, get-to-know-you games in history.
With a simple series of questions to ask, you can learn things you never would have imagined. From playing with your best friends to starting a game with perfect strangers, use these Never Have I Ever questions to make people laugh, get embarrassed, reveal hidden secrets, and more!
Even in a game like Never Have I Ever, where one of the goals is to get people to reveal crazy things about themselves, it’s important to use a few questions at the start to warm up the players and break the ice, easing the tension in the room while people have a chance to have a few drinks and get relaxed.
Here are the 11 best have I ever questions:
1. Never have I ever eaten a whole pizza by myself?
Because who hasn’t ordered a pizza for delivery and overdone it?
2. Never have I ever gone skinny dipping?
Favorite of kids at summer camp (or college), going for a naked swim can be innocent or naughty, depending on the person.
3. Never have I ever cried while watching Titanic.
This one can usually score a drink for a lot of the ladies in the group.
4. Never have I ever tried out sweet martial arts moves by myself.
Have you ever played Bruce Lee in a mirror? Plenty of guys have!

How do you play never have I ever? The rules are simple:
First, make sure everyone has a drink! Or don’t, if you’re so inclined — but Never Have I Ever is traditionally a drinking game, because it helps everyone to loosen up and answer questions more honestly.
Next, get all of the players together into a circle so everyone can see everyone else’s hands.
The first player, whoever is brave enough to start the game, will make a statement beginning with the phrase “Never Have I Ever”. Anyone who has done the action in the statement has to take a drink!
For example, if the first player said “Never Have I Ever met the President of the United States”, and you had met a U.S. President, you (and everyone else playing who has met a U.S. President) would have to take a drink before the game continues.
Play continues around the circle, with players trying to create more inventive Never Have I Ever statements.
The trick of the game is to ask questions which may make the other players reveal more about themselves than they would normally volunteer, without revealing too much about yourself in the process. Never kissed a stranger without knowing their name? Maybe you haven’t — but what about the people you’re playing with?
And that’s it! Play continues as long as everyone involved can keep coming up with great questions, which is where we come in! Use our collection of great Never Have I Ever questions, and you’ll never run out of great questions to ask.
