We Used To Be Friends is a collaborative teenage detective drama game. As a group, you’ll create your teenagers, the city they live in, and a season-long mystery that ties them all together. 

We Used To Be Friends involves a series of interwoven mysteries. You’ll have your season mystery, every character has their own personal mystery, and each session has its own episode mystery. Since the game is collaborative, you’ll investigate locations to find clues and then apply those clues to the various mysteries, moving them along as you discover what happens together. No one needs to plan it out before you play. You can pick up the game and immediately begin to figure out who did it.

While the mysteries are going on, the characters still live their lives. They have friends, enemies, acquaintances who are all around them. They open up to each other, they fight over their feelings, and get into trouble while figuring out what happened. Part of the essential conflict and drama of We Used to be Friends is balancing the tension of the mysteries with the reality that these characters all have to live in the same town.

Jonathan,

I just wanted to say that the game looks fantastic! I understand that this is an ashcan, but after a quick read-through, I was wondering about a few things:

pg. 7 - Under "Build your City", you refer to a sheet to keep track of the city information generated, and I assume, changed during play, but the sheet is not included.

pg. 17 - Under "To Solve a Mystery", you mention that a number of clues must be placed on a suspect to trigger the end of the episode and solve the mystery, but that number does not appear to be in the text. You also mention getting rewards for solving the crime and a set of questions to answer (which I believe can possibly alter the city sheet?), but these also do not appear to be in the text.

pg. 44 - Under "The Tech Geek", the tech geek's Traits seem to be off. All the other profiles' traits add up to a net +3, but the top line of the Tech Geek's traits add up to +2 and the bottom line to +1....See more

Hello Jonathan!

Thank you for posting these questions. I'll give you some short answers now and expand on them in the next few weeks on the blog over at http://growlingdoorgames.com/

1. Pg 7. Yes, that must have gotten missed. Originally there was a plan to have a separate sheet that was like a character sheet for the city. We'll get them up on the site.

2. Pg 17.

Episode Mysteries = Number of clues on a suspect equal to number of players (so if you're playing with 5 people, there needs to be 5 clues on one suspect)

Personal Mysteries = Number of clues on a suspect is number of players -1 (so if you have same 5 people, you need 4 on one suspect to solve a personal mystery)

3. pg 44 - The Tech Geek has the most "stuff." Like everyone else gets involved a lot, the tech geek kind of gets to be the "I HAVE JUST THE THING" so we found that when they stats were higher they were just dominating games so to counter that...See more

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
