Based on the manga, it's the hell of a psychological drama.
I liken it to "Liar Game," where people manipulate each other for money by lowering their debts. Both have tons of puzzles in a game that will test their humanity, morality, loyalty and, of course, friendship. So it comes down to the premise of "Tomodachi Game" that should be translated as "Game of Friendship".
The drama was very well planned, starting with the story that is not at all simple, it is rich in tormenting elements, where they test all the feelings of the participants and stirring the feelings of the spectators.
The quality of the cast here is irrelevant, after all they are all players of distinct minds who act differently under the pressure of a complicated game with a soundtrack that helps and much to give the climate of tension necessary for the story. Reasoning in a limited time to choose the correct answer is undoubtedly torturous, experiencing real tension and emotion is difficult even for those who watch, imagine who plays.
"Tomodachi Game" explores all the variables and perspectives of the participants, just a wrong answer and you are out of this game! Where friendship will speak louder than money or money will speak louder than friendship!

Tomodachi Game is a short drama with an interesting story. Although the exact origin of the game and how the friends ended up in it, wasn't properly explained, the drama was enjoyable. The game that the friends played revealed that they didn't know or trusted each other after all and brought out some secrets. The performances of the all the actors and actresses were really good overall and they helped with the suspece and thrill of the story. Finally, the anime-manga elements, like that creepy pinnochio character, were well managed and didn't stand out too much.
