Have You Ever? – Gaming Edition

I’m sure you’ve all heard of the party game ‘Never Have I Ever?’, right? If not, it’s a drinking game, in which the first person says something they have never done, and anyone who has done that thing takes a drink. Well, Michelle at GeekGirl has created a video game twist on this classic drinking game. Where all the questions are related to gaming.
