Holy god. I made made shitty board games all the time as a kid. my favorite one was the earthbound game. it was in the caves of onett and you would roll the dice to see all the hit points you’d take off. If you rolled a 10, you’d get a smash. i even made those rudolf the rednose rats or whatever the fuck they were.
April 8, 2010 at 7:06 am
The Nerd should totally review this and rip Board James a new one. “What were they THINKING?!”
April 8, 2010 at 4:32 pm
man james what a hard game you should really post a full size picture on your website so people can play
April 8, 2010 at 7:31 pm
Man James your such an inspiration to me. I love watching your videos over and over!
April 8, 2010 at 8:57 pm
wow thats one mother ****ing hard game that’s a dick game good video
April 8, 2010 at 10:52 pm
That looks like one “Bastard” of a game; good job James.
Hmm…I test the sanity of my friends enough as it is, if I made them play that.
April 9, 2010 at 4:58 pm
lol 1 2 3 4 FUCKIN’ 5!!!!!!
April 9, 2010 at 8:07 pm
April 9, 2010 at 10:48 pm
I can imagine what would happen if you did publish this sadistic game. Suicide rates go up 100%!
April 10, 2010 at 5:05 pm
Yeah… we did make some what board games… but sure not so hard like this motherfucker.
April 11, 2010 at 12:08 am
Hey, love the board james episode, i especially love seeing mike being a normal guy insteada acting as some character in an avgn episode or somthing and daaamn that game is so hard.. specially the last ladder part… i feel sorry for the chracter who fell in the trap in the first place… if i ended up in your dungeon james and was trying to get out.. i think i would break down and cry because i know i wouldnt see day light ever again!
April 11, 2010 at 12:40 pm
good thing this was never sold and released to a game company…because if it was….chuck Norris would be pissed!
April 11, 2010 at 12:43 pm
every time you, you drink. fuck yes. you should REALLY make this and market it as a fun drinking game.
April 11, 2010 at 12:44 pm
every time you die, rather.
April 11, 2010 at 3:35 pm
You should make this public… create some board james and motherfucker figures and put it on ebay, I would definetly bid
April 11, 2010 at 6:11 pm
wow, I hadn’t thought about home made board games till this!! Me and a buddy made one slightly based off of the Daggerfall game for PC… looking at it now it just makes no sense haha
April 12, 2010 at 10:37 am
Aaw, that brings memories back to the surface. xD
I used to make board games with friends as well.
Greetings from Denmark.
April 12, 2010 at 4:16 pm
Ah, Mike. You are one Mother F**ker.
April 12, 2010 at 8:26 pm
I think you should scan this into your computer, and sell copies of it online. just make like 20 copies, see how it goes.
on the back just sign the sheet of paper, and then see how much you can get for it
April 14, 2010 at 3:01 am
try a 20 sided die, maybe then you could escape
April 14, 2010 at 4:45 pm
… wow there´s the key to the door … to the human being you are NOW! ^_^
April 15, 2010 at 1:42 am
I really want to play the Street Fighter Games and Mischief Night.
Deadly Danger Dungeon is by far the hardest and cruelest Board Game I’ve ever seen. Looks nice though.
James – you did a great job with this – although I see no way to beat this – okay if you’re extremely lucky. I really want to try this out.
April 16, 2010 at 3:07 am
Hey James, I’d like the plans for this for a D&D campaign. I’ll let you know how successful it is and what I would need to do to adapt it.
April 17, 2010 at 3:24 pm
Dude, you should totally make this a Flash Game!
April 21, 2010 at 3:51 am
A board game based on Pit Fighter? I bet you don’t even get health back in that one.
April 24, 2010 at 2:37 am
This brings back memories. My sister and I used to make our own board games. I don’t think we ever actually played them though… most of the entertainment was in making the games themselves. We also used to make our own comics. For a while, I was convinced that if they were good enough, Marvel or DC would publish them!
April 26, 2010 at 9:13 am
I have the same exact situation!
April 26, 2010 at 4:37 pm
Yeah, making your own (dead hard-random) boardgame was a blast as a kid! Me and a friend made this mammoth of a game that took about 2x2meters and was way too long and punishing to play through. But we kept adding branches and extentions all the time anyway. Good times!
April 27, 2010 at 7:29 pm
DAM! dude THATs looks hard
April 28, 2010 at 9:25 pm
May 2, 2010 at 6:52 pm
I think this boardgame is the lost grandfather of Ninja Gaiden.
Anyone else agree?
May 4, 2010 at 6:53 pm
i really wanna play this fuckin game!
May 8, 2010 at 3:39 pm
And this, my friends, is how those shit Nintendo games were made. By some mad little kid with a pencil! XD
May 10, 2010 at 12:19 am
When i was 8 or so i had made a giant board game/trading card/rpg game. the game was you were a king and you had to roll dice to move around this giant board and collect fighter and equipment cards by visitng towns and beating other players. if you and another player were within like 5 or so tiles of each other you had to play the card game, loser lost a random card. i never got round to finishing it though. thanks for the nostalgia!
May 11, 2010 at 3:11 am
You know, James, a simple Save Throw mechanism on your falls would have made this an entirely workable game! I wonder if your kid self would have thought of that, or if he really was just an asshole.
May 12, 2010 at 3:53 am
wtf? no extra lives? lmfao as long as you have unlimited continues thats okay right?
thought at least 1 extra life, or a extra life spot will make it a little more beat able
May 12, 2010 at 7:39 pm
Coincidence that Deadly Danger Dungeon makes me think of Deadly Towers? I had deadly towers the entire time I have ever owned a Nintendo and I never got ANYWHERE in it, and not for lack of trying. I think your board game is the sequel.
May 17, 2010 at 10:25 pm
Mario must have been plumbing Bowsers shiter when he got pushed down, which would make Deadly Danger Dungeon the sewer system below Bowser’s castle. You should add this to the beginning of the instruction manual.
May 18, 2010 at 8:35 am
That country tune that’s playing through out the video totally fits. Is that the Muther Fucker Mike song?
May 21, 2010 at 7:02 pm
Have you ever made a board game based on Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade?
May 22, 2010 at 3:56 am
Back in sixth grade, I had to make my own board game for an architecture class…or whatever it was…anyway, it was this game where you had to go into the pharaohs tomb and get the treasure, and there were traps all over the place and different characters with different stats and enemies you had to fight in a turnbased rpg fashion, and everything…and when it came time to test everyones games, I was mocked…like I always was, because that school was full of assholes who hated geeks like me and anyone else who dared to be different and mock their way of life…so, I was given a mediocre grade because part of the grading was that everyone else had to like it, and since no one liked me, my grade was low…ahh, good times…back in the days that made me the evil sadistic person I am today…but, I still come up with games from time to time
May 23, 2010 at 6:24 pm
should just call it Mr.put balls in mouth (sorry if spelled wrong)
May 27, 2010 at 1:55 pm
i want that came you gotta publish this or just send i to me.
please i mean it. heres my mail
May 28, 2010 at 7:11 pm
I wasn’t old enough for the board game craze; I grew up with shitty trading card games all around me. But I did make a really popular trading card game. I’m pretty sure it was called “Battlemagic” or something, and had monsters and stuff. Everyone made their own cards, and it was insanely hard to even finish a match between people because of it.
June 5, 2010 at 12:40 am
I BEAT THE GAME YEAH!!
IT TOOK ME 9 TIMES!!
June 8, 2010 at 6:44 pm
When with friends, best game ever.
June 9, 2010 at 9:56 pm
James, your game is an asshole. It beat me up until diarrhea came out of my dick.
June 13, 2010 at 1:58 am
Wow, this game is the unholy assload of the motherfucking bullfuck, I walked around saying “Cowa-fucking-piece-of-dog-shit” all day after I printed this and tried to play this. I got SO FUCKING CLOSE to winning. I had the key and the magic talisman, and I had one roll away from winning… DEATHFUCKINGTRAP! I started freaking out, burned the game, and then took a giant shit on the ashes.
June 19, 2010 at 2:55 am
Hi I love your video and wanted to say that you’ve inspired me to make my own board game! Also i was wondering if you could do the board game “grape escape” that was the awesomest game ever and i would be tickled pink if you would review it!
June 19, 2010 at 10:40 pm
Can we get other board games to print out? That prank one looks awesome!
July 8, 2010 at 9:51 am
you can play it here http://www.kongregate.com/games/dj0wns/deadly-danger-dungeon#
July 11, 2010 at 3:31 am
unless u play that game for hours and hours or if ur the luckiest man alive u will be able to beat it
July 13, 2010 at 7:22 am
Never taught id hear those words “what was I thinking”.
July 14, 2010 at 8:11 am
Hey James, I was wondering what music was playing at the start of the video and during gameplay, it sounded awesome. Thanks a lot and keep up the good work!
July 18, 2010 at 10:22 pm
you were one sadistic fuck
July 23, 2010 at 10:47 pm
Good god, this game is just pure evil. This is what they should have used in Clockwork Orange.
July 26, 2010 at 6:27 am
I BEAT THIS GAME or the turbo version of it
And me and my friend added battles to it
if ur at the same spot u roll dices and highest wins and u the loser dies and the winner gets the key or the talisman if the loser has any!
July 30, 2010 at 1:21 am
What the fxxk is this freaking punishable abomination of hellish man-hole? I’ve played the flash-version for like half hour and keep falling to the stake pitch! Hahaha, it’s a punishment, not game, James. XDDDD
July 30, 2010 at 2:50 am
Wow very clever to draw your own game And I love the title card
August 3, 2010 at 4:50 am
you should have this published as a fan object.
August 3, 2010 at 4:51 am
if this would be all made nice and so i would buy it.
August 4, 2010 at 12:51 am
My friend and I had a game called Star that he made, but it could be won.
August 10, 2010 at 11:19 am
I almost got to the end.then when i got the talisman… bloody rope fall spike game over.ALL THAT SHIT WITH 1 HEALTH POINT LEFT AND SPLAT DEAD!
August 13, 2010 at 2:43 am
That is AWESOME – I thought I was the only person who ever tried to make his own board game: when I was like twelve or something, I made this board game for all of my Godzilla action figures, with them as the player pieces, and all the evil monsters were bosses you had to fight, should you land on a boss square and draw one of them out of the boss pile – even the army as a whole was its own boss, with my little military toys being that game piece. The goal was to make it to monster island, and the battling was all dice based, but just like what you said about all these games you made it pretty much sucked ass.
Fucking love Godzilla, though… Spacegodzilla was my favorite enemy…
September 4, 2010 at 5:36 pm
LMAO “itsameee ohhhohhhhhitsameeeaaoohohh”
Loved the Bugs Bunny reference.
September 5, 2010 at 1:09 pm
This is like a Board Game equivelant to Hell.
September 15, 2010 at 9:11 am
This is the first Board James episode without any balls in it.
September 16, 2010 at 1:44 am
I think you were inspired by all those annoying LJN-games, James. One life, no continues. You should’ve at least got some continues once you get the key, so you can start there!
September 16, 2010 at 7:32 pm
It’s awesome to see Mike Matei play a role in a series regularly, helps the fans familiarize themselves with the previously mysterious name. Plus, Mike is just freaking awesome. But he still is a Mother@#$%er.
September 16, 2010 at 11:01 pm
I say Mike gets his own show. James has AVGN, Board James, Monster Madness, and every other thing that come out; Mike needs… something.
September 23, 2010 at 10:33 pm
this game is the biggest dickfuck I’ve ever played!!! I spent three hours on this damn thing!! This isnt a game, it’s a cruel joke you play on your friends. If I ever tried to get someone without as much patience as me, they’d disintegrate this fucktarded pile of ape crap!!! In the words of Ricky Bobby, “It’s not worth a velvet painting of a dolphan and a whale getting it on!”
October 2, 2010 at 9:59 am
You know, it would be easier, or even beatable if the roll of the dice was the max number of spaces you could move, and that you had to move at least 1 space

This Inspired me to make a board game myself, Ive spent like 6 months work on it so far (on and off) but i think its gonna be pretty damn awesome.
November 20, 2010 at 5:26 pm
Waiting for the home version of Deadly Danger Dungeon.
November 25, 2010 at 1:08 pm
Nice game. Im thinking of making one of my own.
November 28, 2010 at 2:23 am
aww man i wanna try, that sounds like a challenge and i like being challenged win or lose
November 30, 2010 at 7:13 am
I so totally made some board games when i was a kid, too! I only remember one specifically – a halloween themed one, with skeletons, Dracula, ghosts, and the goal was to get the giant pot of gold inside the haunted house. It spanned 2 taped-together pages of 80s printer paper (that my parents would bring home from work to give us to draw on), and was a curvy, but linear path, with typical go back a few spaces, go forward a few spaces, lose a turn, back to start, all the basics. But i had drawings of all those monsters and a huge pot of gold with gleaming gold-crayon coins, haha. We even stored it in an old “The Bay” gift box – a clothing department store in Canada, in one of those boxes you never want to see under giftwrap on christmas morning because you know it’s going to be clothes … except there’s home video from 1985, when i was 5, of me being excited to get clothes, even so far as to once say, “I hope it’s a package of clothes, again!” I was always an odd kid, i guess i’m genetically more inclined to want to be in control of how i look. *shrugs*
Anyhoo, i ramble, awesome review. I much enjoy Board James, as it lets me play along to games i’d always seen advertised on TV and wanted, but never owned or got to play. Though this particular one doesn’t count, i’m speaking of Mouse Trap (which i never owned, but saw a friend “trip”) and Fire Ball Island (which always got my attention as a kid, but i never personally saw).
December 14, 2010 at 10:59 am
I one time made a Pokémon Board Game. It had squares that made you go to the Pokémon Centre in the begin like Pikachu is on Fire, Horsea cut himself and Unknown has an Identity Crisis. :p
December 19, 2010 at 8:08 pm
You should make a scan of the prankster game. I think i would LOVE that one.
January 29, 2011 at 8:20 pm
i think that game would be easier and better if you played with two dice
February 1, 2011 at 10:03 am
Boo! James is using this site to advertise his products! >=(
February 6, 2011 at 8:52 pm
use 2 dice and pick which one you want
February 10, 2011 at 6:10 pm
HAHA James ROFLs
March 12, 2011 at 8:37 pm
This reminds me of games my younger brother use to make, when he was a little kid. He would make huge games, something like that Weapons & Warriors game, out of cardboard and paper. These games were enormous, with mazes, buildings, custom characters, and of course, very strange rules. Some of them actually made sense. To bad I don’t remember any of them specifically. He was always trying to gain my attention, since we were the only two kids my parents produced, and I was a rebellious teenager wanting to do ‘grown up’ stuff. Not kid stuff. However, I did play with him quite a bit. It was fun.
March 18, 2011 at 8:09 pm
1,2.3.4 FUCKING 5 i always lmao xD
March 22, 2011 at 7:13 pm
Lol I always find all of these videos hilarious. Though this one stood out, mostly for Mr. Bucket’s “BALLS B-B-B-B-B-B-B-B-B-B-B-B-B BALLS BALLS BALLS BALLS” at the end xD
March 27, 2011 at 1:51 pm
I’m a huge fan of this Board James series. It has inspired me to do a video on the 1995 OverPower card game with Marvel, DC and Image super heroes. If anyone is craving more retro gaming you should check it out. Thanks!
April 2, 2011 at 3:41 am
i shude try makeing one :]
April 17, 2011 at 4:02 am
Chuck Norris Wins this game on his first try.
April 20, 2011 at 10:44 pm
Got so far! Got the key and over to the ladder…Then fell with 6 HP…
May 14, 2011 at 3:12 pm
I’m thinking of making a version of this game in Roblox… and including an “if (player.UserId = placeCreator)” subroutine in the dice algorithm so that I never land on an instadeath space. Maybe expand it so anyone who coughs up 15 Robux for the VIP Shirt is safe from them too.
And for even more mua-ha-ha, create an inverse of it so that Guests and Banned Users land on nothing but instadeath spaces.
May 21, 2011 at 7:00 pm
If I have to lissen to he UPS we heart logisitics advert once more I might kill someone.
May 30, 2011 at 2:53 pm
I actually got the talisman in one shot, but I died shortly afterward.
It was pretty cool.
June 11, 2011 at 10:02 am
I used to do this same exact thing. I made a Mega Man and BTTF board game. I wish I still had them. Watching this video actually made me kind of sad and a little afraid. I’m just worried that kids today aren’t using their imaginations like we used to because of all the crap out there now like the Internet, smart phones, etc.
June 14, 2011 at 11:45 am
dude i so want a copy duplicate of deadly danger dungeon
June 16, 2011 at 4:53 pm
Dude, this would be an awesome way to kill a rainy day at the beach. I’d totally play it!
July 18, 2011 at 5:41 pm
This looks so diffucult!
July 21, 2011 at 2:35 am
This is a nice game but very difficult to play.
July 22, 2011 at 1:25 pm
It would be nice to have a scan or something like that of the game. I would love to play it (well in fact I thinking to create the game to try it…)
July 26, 2011 at 2:33 am

Get your ass over here you mother fucker.
August 18, 2011 at 5:27 am
@lol_lee_lo try the link on the right of the video that says “You can get a scan of the game and instructions here”.
August 29, 2011 at 4:24 pm
I smell a app for this or flash game. Come on, someone do it – you know James would be all over it.
September 5, 2011 at 3:13 am
So….as a child you designed the game Talisman?
September 18, 2011 at 10:36 am
I gotta say that you had some serious imagination and a violent mind James >=D
November 18, 2011 at 5:29 pm
http://www.kongregate.com/games/dj0wns/deadly-danger-dungeon people copy and paste the post and you will find a copy of deadly danger dungeon
December 1, 2011 at 12:25 pm
i think they should make a Cinemassacre DDD board game i would buy it xD
January 7, 2012 at 9:50 pm
I used to make games on paper and manilla-tag but they all ended up being rip-off’s of MONOPOLY XD
January 24, 2012 at 10:18 pm
Well, you may have had one life, but at least there were continues.
January 24, 2012 at 10:21 pm
i would play this game just to try and beat it!! Even if it is just chance!
February 8, 2012 at 5:33 pm
@jolteonbeast Just make your own and be sure to place “Game Over” spaces all over it.
February 2, 2012 at 1:28 am
Hey this is a great video and no lying this is like the 10th time I’ve come to watch it once again. However I want to ask something about the video…Where can I get the song??? It’s so hilarious and cool for me xD “Motherfucker” Please, if anybody knows tell me where I can get it or the name =P
February 3, 2012 at 11:34 pm
March 7, 2012 at 4:08 pm
this was posted on my birth day. no joke.
March 8, 2012 at 9:32 pm
I kept losing because this game is so freaking brutal!
April 28, 2012 at 4:06 am
hey, just wanted to say that i’m really impressed with the creativity you and your neighbors showed making those games. They were awesome looking though incomprehensible. I think the next time i hang out w/ my nerdiest of friends i’m gonna suggest we make our own game. Thanks for some inspiration.
May 5, 2012 at 10:39 pm
Yah know James I totally used to make little board games too Although none of them were really playable…so my hats off to yah! Too bad yours were so damn hard haha.
May 17, 2012 at 4:22 am
thats what a board game of ljn looks like
June 5, 2012 at 3:45 am
Wow, that game must of been a byproduct of all those incredibly hard NES games you played.
July 1, 2012 at 8:21 pm
looks like we need to change it from board james to motherfucker james
August 9, 2012 at 5:30 pm
Live like a windrammer as you fuck.
