What Is Best Friends?
OK, it's a game about being Best Friends and all the little hatreds that Best Friends have for each other.
Oh, I know. You're gonna say that y'all get along just peachy.
Well, that's fine too. No one said any of this was true...
But, between you and me:
it really is.
Best Friends is a role-playing game for 4 or more friends.
It features a simple and genuinely innovative character creation system, and devilishly childish circle-triangle artwork.
Written and illustrated by Gregor Hutton (3:16, Frenzy, ERP, Ghostfighter) Best Friends bristles with dark humour and an impish tone.
Featuring an innovative group character creation system it requires only tokens, such as poker chips or shot glasses, to play. The simple rules are designed to get players telling stories of Best Friends and all their petty hatreds right from the start.
Equally adept for playing characters in crisis or angst-ridden teenagers Best Friends is illustrated throughout with devilishly stylish art, which gives it a quirky care-free feel.

"Best Friends is one of the most genuinely innovative role-playing concepts I have come across in a considerable time" - Hendrik Little
“My fave element of this is character generation, where the other players vote on your various stats. Nice clean visual presentation.” - Robin Laws
“Even though the game is about conflict and hatred, it lends itself easily to a humorous, tongue-in-cheek tone.” - Michael Erb, Graffiti Magazine
“...the game is nothing if not subtly provocative... Character creation is brilliant. Setting creation is simple and elegant...” – Don Corcoran
