From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"Never have I ever", also commonly known as "I've Never...","10 fingers",[1] is a popular party game that typically involves drinking.[2] The verbal game[3] is started with each player getting into a circle and putting up 10 fingers. Then, the first player says a simple statement starting with "Never have I ever".[2] Anyone who has done what the first player has not must drink and put down one finger.[4] Play then continues around the circle, and the next person makes a statement.[5] The game is finished when any player ends up with all 10 fingers down.[6]

Games such as never have I ever "reveal interesting things about the participants and help build friendships", according to one American college student.[7] Players often admit to things that they previously had not.[8] As with truth or dare, the game is often sexual in nature.[9] In some variations, the game may be incorporated into other drinking games, usually Kings.[7]

The game has been portrayed in many television shows and films, such as Lost, The L Word, Family Guy, Gossip Girl, and Beerfest.
