    It was a while since you made any Board James episode, but this one was awesome.

    I remember this commercial all the time from when I was 10. The song went something like SMASH, WHIIRL, BANG, TORNADO REX! It’s been literally 20 years since I’ve seen it and I’m too lazy to YouTube it. I thought you were going to do a cover of THAT song, but instead we get original content. Wow.

    sorry but it’s too short and not funny. your new guest was… shit. I usually like your Board James videos tough, until Mr. Bucket and this one.

    I have an old shitty Goosebumps board game (based from the RL Stine Books) that completely blew nutsack and was a pain in the ass to setup and play as a kid

  • September 15, 2010 at 1:20 pm

    @J.J. McSandfar
    Glad you enjoyed. We didn’t know if Tornado Rex had a song or not, so thanks for enlightening us.

    September 15, 2010 at 1:24 pm

    Oh, James is reading the posts, awesome. I just want to say that I really like your AVGN videos and I have no problem waiting a month because they really have quality into them. As for the other videos I think you could do some more Bullshit videos but your trivia ones and every video you make about movies is really fun to watch. Thanks for the free entertainment πŸ™‚

  • September 15, 2010 at 1:46 pm

    I had this game! Loved it!

  • September 15, 2010 at 1:50 pm

    G0d, I loved this.

  • pojut

    September 15, 2010 at 2:03 pm

    Super awesome! Never heard of this one, will definitely have to check it out. Always been a huge fan of board games, can’t believe this one slipped past me.

  • Cabamacadaf

    September 15, 2010 at 2:13 pm

    Tornado Rex looks kinda like Taz.

  • TheEntertainmentGuy

    September 15, 2010 at 2:14 pm

    Adding a new personality eh? I like it,might make things more crazy than they already are.

  • September 15, 2010 at 2:15 pm

    Great job James! I always enjoy watching Board James. I don’t remember this game, really, but the box looks familiar somehow.

    Anyways the game bares a striking resemblance to Fireball island, just a smaller version.

  • JohnnyV123

    September 15, 2010 at 2:17 pm

    I think I had this game? I usually don’t forget those kinds of things but that whistling sound of the tornado rex and the shitty plastic that makes up the board seem really familiar.

  • September 15, 2010 at 2:18 pm

    I love how you guys talk shit about Bad Luck Boosty. I was laughing my ass off when you gave that look and said he sucks his own dick. haha

  • September 15, 2010 at 2:25 pm

    Wow, this was hilarious, every Board James is, i’ve never even seen this game before but it looks like loads of fun!

  • Dazbean

    September 15, 2010 at 2:26 pm

    Motherfucker Mike… allways cheating….
    Great with a new Board James, short, fun and awesome.
    / thanks from Sweden.

    September 15, 2010 at 2:28 pm

    This was the shit! Speaking of Board James… I was watching Child’s Play on Netflix yesterday and I seen Fireball Island in the beginning toy store scene. I don’t know if you mentioned it, knew it, or even give a shit but I was all excited.

  • Elemence

    September 15, 2010 at 2:30 pm

    Tornado Rex was the best board game I played as a kid besides “Dynamite”. Awesome video made me laugh!

  • gruven42

    September 15, 2010 at 2:34 pm

    HAHAHAHAHA! Fucking hilarious. Funniest “Board” yet!

  • Krieg

    September 15, 2010 at 2:34 pm

    James – We so would have been best friends growing up, me and u have same sense of humor, freaking hilarious. I wanted to throw that new guy into a fat barrell of monkey spunk.

  • jsin1276

    September 15, 2010 at 2:37 pm

    I love your videos though this one was lacking in the “funny”. Also introducing a new character felt forced and really unnecessary. I look forward to your next AVGN video and this years MonsterMadness.

  • strint519

    September 15, 2010 at 2:47 pm

    Hillarious….was kind of jonsing for a new Board James ep…Thanks guys.

    BOOTSY MOTHER FUCKING SPANKINS P.I.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ^I’ve seen that video so many times, haha.

    What a great addition to Board James. And damn, can Bootsy sing or what? I’ve heard some of his shit before on Facebook. He’s uber.

  • WVUer21

    September 15, 2010 at 2:56 pm

    Been a long time since we last saw Board James, but this was a great way to bring him back! Great job, fellas.

  • Ultra Magnus

    September 15, 2010 at 2:58 pm

    That was awsome hahah. James could you please do a Board James for the board game from the mid 90’s called Loopin Louie that or Kerplunk. Fuck it just film you and your boys playing a Ouija board if you have the cohonies.

    Can Anybody give me the lyric to that song “Tornado Rex” ?

  • September 15, 2010 at 3:46 pm

    I see a Hatchet DVD!!

    You going to see the sequel James? I am! In theaters!!

  • MisterE

    September 15, 2010 at 3:59 pm

    Fucking hilarious. The song is great, and that’s one thing I’ve always noticed about these videos, is that any time original music is made for them (these or any other of James’ videos), it’s always great. This video had perfect editing and flow, and the acting was great too. Keep it up guys!

  • Necramonium

    September 15, 2010 at 4:01 pm

    Lol, its a wonder that the company who made this game did not got a cease and desist notice from Warner Bros see Tornado Rex looks allot like the Tasmanian Devil… He even spins like him!

  • TomEWylde

    September 15, 2010 at 4:03 pm

    why does tornado rex look like Taz ?

  • September 15, 2010 at 4:09 pm

    Yea, nice… stupid game though. But great for good old boardgame commercials

  • Undertaker

    September 15, 2010 at 4:14 pm

    loved it! and especially at the end with the nice gore effect :p
    nice one james πŸ™‚

  • Dr.That1guy

    September 15, 2010 at 4:40 pm

    This lacked the humor of some of the older one’s but entertaining anyway. But to be honest I think Mike is a better motherfucker than the new guy. I did find the conversation between you and Mike hilarious though. Espacially “I seen you shove something up your ass!” What a motherfucker!

    Thanks James!

  • Lusignan

    September 15, 2010 at 4:41 pm

    Weird episode, I like Mr. Bucket best when it comes to
    Board James. Kevin Finn is also hilarous ever since you had him on the team, but Kyle, Mike, and Liam are still the best guys that help ya

  • Omi-san

    September 15, 2010 at 4:51 pm

    I liked the first “Board James” videos because you reviewed the game first before doing sketch.

    If it’s just a comedy sketch without any explaination on the game and how you felt about it as a kid versus today, I’m not really interested,

  • September 15, 2010 at 4:57 pm

    another board james, this one was awesome, i laughed my rear off. the new guy is funny. we all had a “bad luck” kid we used to hang out with, good times.

  • RetroGamer3

    September 15, 2010 at 5:10 pm

    Crazy, wacky, and just plain fun to watch.

  • September 15, 2010 at 5:13 pm

    A lot of fun!

  • September 15, 2010 at 5:22 pm

    I dunno, I kinda agree with Omi-san, I prefer a more straight-forward review as opposed to this random, special-effects ridden stuff.

  • Albylion

    September 15, 2010 at 5:44 pm

    Well, at least they didn’t call it Tornadian Devil.

  • marigold23

    September 15, 2010 at 5:44 pm

    My God but I just wanted to hit Bad Luck Bootsy in the head with a board! But I really liked the by-play between you and Mike, and Bootsy was a lot less irritating than the Glitch Gremlin. But how’d you talk him into accepting the moniker “Bootsy”? πŸ˜€ And I wonder if Warner Bros. can sue retroactively for copyright infringement? You may have done the proud makers of Tornado Rex some harm here, guys!

  • GoldRoger

    September 15, 2010 at 5:47 pm

    Hey a new character for the cinemassacre crew, James ?

    cool video

    September 15, 2010 at 5:53 pm

    “Awww noooo BAD LUCK BOOOTSIEEE!?”

    I don’t know why but it makes me laugh anytime I see that part. Great ending too, you totally gave the audience what they wanted after being annoyed by bootsy for so long!

  • horrorfanboy

    September 15, 2010 at 5:53 pm

    Sorry if this is a random comment but James, could you put your Top 10 Shitty Shatner Movies video on Youtube? Just asking. Please?

  • MasterOfHyrule

    September 15, 2010 at 6:09 pm

    I have this game and I used to just play with the top for the fun of it… It broke and the board game is still in the box but missing all the pieces somehow… yeah, I’m sure James knows how it is since his other board games are missing pieces…

    I was waiting for this board game to be reviewed…

    Btw, I submitted it to digg, give it a digg:

  • September 15, 2010 at 6:16 pm

    I liked it man. Yeah its nice when you talk about the game and your perspective on it as a kid, but do I expect you to do the same video everytime? No way, you’re creative, you’re better than that. Keep it up, Board James!

  • ZeFlyGuy

    September 15, 2010 at 6:33 pm

    I suggested this to James awhile ago, I’m glad he decided to do it! Awesome video.

  • Analbag Thats Me

    September 15, 2010 at 6:34 pm

    Mike’s response to Omi-San is epic lol! Great video as always. I remember Tornado Rex commercials when I was a kid. That game always looked really stupid hahaha

  • September 15, 2010 at 6:47 pm

    I really liked this one guys! It was fuckin’ hilarious! The video was a little short and was missing a few key elements, like when it was first released. Maybe a TV commercial from You Tube on Tornado Rex, but I understand. You guys got a lot of work on your hands with other projects. Hope you guys come up with another crazy episode for Board James before the end of the year. Good luck with the store!

  • scottybones

    September 15, 2010 at 6:51 pm

    lol i remeber this game! so simple nothing to it. I dont know it anyone ever played this one game called “DWEEBS GEEKS and WEIRDOS., but it was this ASININE game where u would thro a DIP CHIP into a street and who ever is the closest to a manhole cover gets to pick a card….and then the card would have u do some CRAZY FUCKING SHIT just to move ahead a few spaces on the board. And the board was pictures of HIDEOUS looking dudes and when u get to the END the picture was of some hip looking guy w/ sunglasses and a hawaiin shirt called “TOTALLY RAD DUDE” I know SOMEONE must have played this game!! it was SOOOO Ridiculous!! lol

    Bad Luck Bootsy kinda rocked this video, and you may have inadvertently created the makings for a spin-off!

  • random-hero-

    September 15, 2010 at 9:29 pm

    Mike is funny as shit!! Love that guy!!

  • September 15, 2010 at 9:33 pm

    You should do a Board James of Dragon Strike. It’s a game where you have your hero go through a cave to retrieve jewels, and you win by getting the golden eggs back to the entrance to the cave. But watch out! Because there’s a Dragon that will try to stop you! He’ll knock your gems off allowing other players to steal them (Keep it away from Mother Fucker Mike. XD)

  • September 15, 2010 at 9:33 pm

    EXTREME AWESOMENESS. I was so scared that Bad Luck Bootsy was actually going to let that thing go and kill you guys. I was having suspension of disbelief!!!

    But seriously, that looks so fun. But my un coordinated self, I don’t think you can trust me with that one lol.

  • September 15, 2010 at 9:56 pm

    haha awesome!

  • chimeradave

  • September 15, 2010 at 10:36 pm

    @Dan The Enigma and @Mike Matei
    Dan, you are referring to the game Milton Bradley’s Dragon Strike. The board game with the mechanical dragon in the middle. My brother and I used to play that all the time. Until we got so pissed off and started yelling. The good old days…

  • WillWill

    Yeah, thats a kick-ass song!

  • Mariusz69

    September 15, 2010 at 11:16 pm

    The custom T-Rex theme really puts the episode over the top into the realm of awesomeness. I like the addition of the Bootsy character because it adds another dynamic into the Board James vs. M’Fer Mike storyline. It should be a running joke from now on, that someone HAS to die at the end of each Board James episode πŸ™‚ M’Fer Mike got blown up in Crossfire. Now Bootsy gets a tornado into his brain through his eyesocket πŸ™‚ Good job you guys.

  • September 15, 2010 at 11:17 pm

    Bad Luck Bootsy!!!!! AhahahahahXD

    Nice to see another light-hearted episode after the horror of Mr. Bucket! (Well..except for the ending there). I’m always getting flashbacks to commercials from early ’90s Saturday mornings with these board game reviews James. Oh and your cameo in Kickassia! was probably the funniest part of the whole movie. “How do you play this game anyway?”

  • JeremySwiff

    September 16, 2010 at 12:13 am

  • Gavie

    A purple Tazmanian Devil, he can turn into a tornado, just like Taz. Why didn’t they just make a deal with Warner Bros to use the actual Taz.

    Game looks fun though! Nice vid!

  • Rayta Marsh

    September 16, 2010 at 1:32 am

    Ha! I love this. I wish I had cool board games like that when I was a kid. The only cool board game that I remember owning was Jumanji. My grandma had Candy Land and that was my favorite whenever I would go over there to spend the night. Other than that, I mostly just played the NES or the N64. But anyhoo, very funny and very well done!

  • September 16, 2010 at 1:36 am

    One of my friends had this game when we were little (he had all the cool board games). We never paid attention to the three-wind rule. Or the card drawing rule. Or any of the rules. We just moved our guys up one at a time until one of us randomly let that spinning bastard fly.

    XD Haha, awesome, this was the game I was thinkin’ of when ya reviewed Fireball Island. Played Tornado Rex a lot back in the day, lotta fun, I was the sorta player who always tried to put my pieces to the far side of each space rather than the center…then have the bastard come down and skim the side anyway, beltin me off.

    that was great, I love how the game pieces fly off the board when they get hit by tornado rex. Damn I would have loved this game as a child. I probably would have used dice though instead of the cards.

    You guys playing this like little kids was so well done and hilarious especially the part where Bootsy comes in and doesn’t know what he’s doing and wrecks everything. I remember what that was like.

  • September 16, 2010 at 9:02 am

    I love this game! But no one remembers it!

    My cousin and I found this again in my grandma’s basement and played it….we were like 16 at the time!

    I have to say, I’m not usually fond of the Board James videos, but you hit all the right notes with this one. It’s one of your best videos yet. Bad Luck Bootsy!? The way you say that alone is hilarious. He’s great, he should be in more videos, and if he did the song in this one, he should definitely provide more music too. The guitar is great the whole way through, not to mention the vocals.

  • September 18, 2010 at 4:27 pm

    It’s simply hilarious when the colorful people jump all over James and Mike.
    Bad Luck Bootsie says he’s a boob. I think he says that because of the title of a Looney Tunes cartoon James and Mike saw on film last Summer. πŸ™‚

    Ha. I just noticed that James has an X-Arcade. Look behind James and Mike when Bootsy is overwinding the tornado. I frickin love that thing. I remember I had a Halo Lan party not too long ago, and my X-Arcade stole the show, really. We only played, like, 3 games of Halo. The rest of the night everyone wanted to play with that damn thing. πŸ˜€

  • September 22, 2010 at 6:00 am

    I went straight on eBay to buy this game after watching the episode. To my great surprise – AND DISMAY – the game is nearly IMPOSSIBLE to track down, on the entire internet!

    If you ever want to put up the game on eBay, James, then you should expect to earn A LOT of money on it. I know I for one would throw myself on an offer like that.

    Just please inform the rest of us on here before you post it there, or at least at the same time. That is, IF you ever consider selling it. πŸ™‚

  • September 23, 2010 at 3:04 am

    Y’know… the incredible thing is that I think this is the video that has the least focus on the board game itself, but is also one of the best Board James reviews yet. I still love the Crossfire episode the most though… but this. Hilarious. Great character of Bootsy too, just awesome XD it’s hard to describe why this video is so damn fulfilling for me… but it’s great!

  • adam loewen

    September 23, 2010 at 4:33 am

    motherf*er Mike is so funny! 3 great characters. Bad luck Bootsy is like your own Jar Jar Binks that you can just cuss out continuously. A little over the top in this one, but a very funny guy nonetheless. I look forward to seeing these characters play some other worthless board games.

    The “Hikers” they use in this game are the same they use in Ka-Boom.

    btw im not sure if its called ka-boom, the game has like 4 bridges rigged with tnt and a “igniter” in the middle

    love your site

    More footage from the actual game would have been nice, but overall, a decent video.

    I still have this game, unfortuantely Tornado Rex broke because I wound him up too tight too many times! I need to find another one! I have a game from the ’80s called DYNAMITE! The objective is simple, get all the way around the board once, but the bridges you cross EXPLODE! It’s an aawesome game and I reccommend trying to find it!

  • October 13, 2010 at 2:40 pm

    Love the Over The Top reference when you flipped your hat backwards. The name Bad Luck Bootsie is pure gold too

  • October 13, 2010 at 8:39 pm

    God i love this series. It’s a shame there is an fairly finite amount of games to cover though. At this point i think you have covered every game i either recieved as a gift or watched commercials for endlessly on the after school cartoons growing up.

    Such fun to look at some of these crazy gimmicky games being played by such comical individuals.

    He’s not shitting when it comes to winding up that piece of shit rex. Everytime we would wind him up too much he would go flying off of the board like an asshole. Everybody in the room would duck b/c you literally had no idea if it was going to go flying or stay on the board. Good times

    I swear, I just can’t get over the fact that you and your close friends are so fucking talented. You are a fantastic actor and film maker (James), Mike Matei is one hell of an artist (his work on your title cards (ESPECIALLY the Star Wars episode)), and Kevin Finn writing the Tornado Rex song and being an awesome actor as well (this, Game Glitches, Ninja Gaiden). I would personally love to see more Kevin and Mike in your future videos, James. They both add quite a bit to the screen!

    I never owned or even got a chance to play Torando Rex as a kid, but that’s probably a good thing. Me and my friends would have always done more than three spins and a lot of eyes would have been lost.
