I am a traditional drinking game fan, but recently a friend asked if I had ever played any online drinking games with my partner… I can honestly say at that time I hadn’t…
So what are Online Drinking Games for 2? Well they are a variety drinking games for two or more people that have been designed to be played on your phone, tablet, computer or TV. They are simple and easy to learn, they can be downloaded in minutes and are Free to play.

It has taken a bit of time to go through them and is still a working progress. There were many I really like and lots I discarded.
My partner Claire and I regularly add drinking games to our social night, and we made it my mission to research and play as many of the online drinking games for 2 as possible!
Here is the start of our run down on what we liked. Like many apps there are paid and free versions. The free version on some of these drinking game apps are limited but if you love you game you may decide it’s worth paying for the full version.
As there are lot’s of online drinking games, this is just the first in a series of articles. Let me know your feed back and any recommendations.

Never Have I Ever
There are several online versions of this popular drinking Never Have I Ever to choose from. We have tried a few and here is what I thought of them.
Never Ever Drinking & Sex Game
Looking at the title of this game its odd to understand why the sexy part comes with the paid portion of the app and not free!
But It’s a very easy game and can be played by 2 people.
Here’s what you do
You add your names (players) at the beginning and tap the let’s have fun button.
Choose from 5 categories; 3 that are free and 2 you pay for.
- Random mode – Questions from a mixture soft and Party category
- Hot – Naughty section
- No Mercy
Tap your chosen category
Take it in turns to answer the question with either Never – or I have
What we liked was that it is so basic and simple. Claire and I can head down to the local pub and play it from our phones, have a great drink and a laugh without disturbing anyone…
Not sure we would pay for the additional categories. We will decide when we have gone through every question!
Never Have I ever
Our Best Pick – love this game and all categories included in Free version
Known as the spiciest drinking party game that is in the palm of your hand. Like all never have I ever games the aim is to reveal the truth by answering a range of questions that are meant to push the limits. If you have done it … take a drink
Here’s what you do
You read the question out load and answer with I never or I have… The best thing about this game is all the categories are included in the free version and the questions are endless. You get ads that pop up but they really weren’t a problem for us…We are playing all these online drinking games as a couple, but there is no limit to the fun you would have if you had friends join you
The categories included are:
- Dirty & Sex
- Random Game
