I Never Have...

I Never Have...

Everyone sits in a circle, each with 10 pipecleaners. Designate one person to start.


The starter then says "I never have..." followed by something true that they have never done but also that they think others in the group definately have. For instance, "I never have baked peanut butter cookies." Everyone in the group who HAS baked peanut butter cookies must give up one of their pipecleaners to the asker.

If no one in the group has ever baked peanut butter cookies, then the asker must give one pipecleaner to each member of the group. Play moves clockwise, each person having a chance to say "I never have..." and collect or lose pipecleaners.

At the end of a round or designated time, the person with the most pipecleaners wins!

I never did that.....

Have all of the children sit in a circle.(If you have a big group you can make mulitple circles)

Give each person 10-15 pennies, jellybeans, or anything you like really!

Start at one side of the circle and pick the first "speaker". The "speaker" says one thing they have never done. Anyone in the circle who has done this gives the "speaker" one of his or her pennies or jellybeans.

After going around the circle twice, giving everyone a chance to be "speaker" twice, the person with the most pennies or jellybeans wins!

I Never

by youth leader

Can be played with a wide number of people, 6-15. If there's more than 15 you may want to split up into 2 groups. Each player is given the same number of "tokens" (we've used toothpicks once and m&ms another time. The more tokens given the longer the game will last. 10 tokens seem to be a good amount).



One student at a time makes a true statement about themselves that starts with "I never" (an example would be "I never have been on an airplane"). After the student makes the statement, everyone in the group who HAS done this particular thing forfeits a token into the center of the group.

Players who haven't done that particular thing get to keep all their tokens for that round. Then the next person gives their "I never" statement.

Continue around the circle until only one person has a token left- they are declared the winner.
It's a great game to get to know unique facts about everyone!
