    Nice. Always good to see new Board James!

    and to answer your question….it was bad luck bootsy. i mean come on…any guy who fucks some sort of sea creature is pretty “fishy”

  • May 3, 2015 at 10:38 am

    If you watch the comentary on board james you can hear james that he say to mike and bootsy
    that some fan who watched it said that in shark attack video james says i just wanna play a game and in the dream phone video the phone says the same thing so technically it wasn’t james who came up with the idea in this video

  • Allen Lucas

    Good idea to let the viewer decide the ending! I chose the FALSE ending because…well I always wanted a happy ending in James’ videos!

    • Kieran St James

      July 16, 2015 at 1:28 pm

      Ikr, man this video was hilarious. I loved how well it all ties together, and the multiple choice ending was excellent too

  • Rick

    May 3, 2015 at 10:57 am

    WHAAAAAAAAA — !! XD I hate to say it but i’ve always thought he did it thanks to the ‘I just wanna’ play a game’ line. So yeah. He did it.

  • Shannon Gold

    May 3, 2015 at 10:58 am

    This was intense! I’m not sure how to answer the question… Hm… I’m going to say True just because I’m curious on what will happen.

  • May 3, 2015 at 11:13 am

    Is it just me, or does it seem like Board James has more continuity than AVGN?

    • Cryptic Wizard

      July 30, 2016 at 4:35 pm

      Well, yeah, Board James is supposed to be an ongoing story, unlike AVGN. The AVGN series isn’t really telling a story around the game reviews like Board James does.

  • May 3, 2015 at 11:30 am

    FALSE! because we all like James Rolfe ๐Ÿ™‚

  • The Kaleidoscopic God

    May 3, 2015 at 12:11 pm

    I’m guessing the most-viewed ending becomes canon? In that case I hope not everyone views both like I did.

    • greedo

      May 3, 2015 at 4:00 pm

      Yeah, I’m guessing the same thing, too. Having said that, sometimes two paths converge onto the same road. So… guess we’ll have to see!

    • ZomboCombo

      May 4, 2015 at 3:04 am

      Didn’t think of that. I just figured that what the game said didn’t matter.

  • GameCom

    May 3, 2015 at 1:00 pm

    NICE, cant wait to see zombified MFM and Bootsy return!

  • May 3, 2015 at 1:12 pm


  • Miyake

    May 3, 2015 at 1:32 pm


    but true

  • JayRam

    May 3, 2015 at 1:45 pm

    The idea of continuity in the Board James series is very cool. Although this episode was simple, this may be one of my favorites just for the fact that you involved the viewer by letting us choose if Board James was the killer–that was ingenious. Hope there’ll be more chances like this (where we help steer the series) in future episodes.

  • geddon

    May 3, 2015 at 2:06 pm

    Judging by the comments, it seems like most people don’t realize you click the ‘true’ or ‘false’ to see the alternate endings.

    I like the alternate endings, but I missed the other Board James characters.

    • Shannon Gold

      May 3, 2015 at 2:50 pm

      Oh… I watched it on my phone… I’ll do it later.

  • damon

    May 3, 2015 at 2:13 pm

    Woah….. that’s all I gotta say, is woah… I’m still not sure of the true killer, so I’m not voting. I ain’t convinced yet.

  • May 3, 2015 at 2:25 pm

    I can tell from watching both endings exactly what the next episode is going to be. And it’s pretty much the best idea ever.

  • Weldin Dunn

    May 3, 2015 at 3:05 pm

    Nice! love the ending(s).

  • greedo

    May 3, 2015 at 3:58 pm

    James, go with the “false” ending. I don’t care what the final tally is. It’s a far more intriguing story line, and it has more potential. Let’s face it, the whole “Board James is guilty” thing is too predictable. I’d love to see where you’d take this series, otherwise!

  • May 3, 2015 at 4:07 pm

    Wow. Amazing episode. I love the Taxi Driver reference.

  • nathan Dunphy

    May 3, 2015 at 4:15 pm

    So the next Board James will be Ouija, right?

  • sattua

    May 3, 2015 at 4:42 pm

    has always great job!!! tx for make us laugh

  • May 3, 2015 at 5:02 pm

    haha, I watched both true and false.

  • DBZMagus

    May 3, 2015 at 5:25 pm

    Whatever gets this bullshit over with so we can get back to standard episodes again. I guess that would be false?

  • May 3, 2015 at 5:27 pm

    False the card is lying

  • May 3, 2015 at 6:49 pm

    One of the best episodes so far, awesome!

  • Satnav

    May 3, 2015 at 8:38 pm

    So what happened to the Robo-Jameses from the last one?

  • Don Skiver

    May 3, 2015 at 9:05 pm

    Okay so I liked this episode…but…what the hell happened with the robots!? I was looking forward to some kind of wacky adventure or something!

    Oh well. I guess a seance with a Ouija board contacting the spirits of Mike and Bootsy is fun too.

  • Shannon Gold

    May 3, 2015 at 9:34 pm

    So I just watched both the True and False endings… and the false ending just proves my fan theory. The Dream Phone, Mr. Bucket, and heck even the camera in “Cinemaphobia”… Snix is coming back isn’t he? I mean… many he got tired of possessing people he decides to possess inanimate objects. And since Board James’ name is James, Snix is seeking out his revenge… (So that makes the actor in “Cinemaphobia… ‘pre- Board James'” Anyway… awesome episode!

    • greedo

      May 7, 2015 at 2:38 pm

      That’s an interesting possibility. Never thought of that before. Prior to this, James has walled off his early films from his more modern stuff. (Board James, AVGN). Would be interesting to see a crossover!

  • Aaron1375

    May 3, 2015 at 10:47 pm

    I am going to assume the ending means we say what we want here so I go with “False”.

  • fantasticfink

    May 3, 2015 at 11:02 pm

    Cool ending. Nice to see something different.

  • May 4, 2015 at 12:27 am

    Brilliant! ‘choose your own ending!’ I love it, just like those old adventure books ๐Ÿ™‚ Also Next time on Board James: Ouija! ๐Ÿ˜€ Excite and Hyped!


    May 4, 2015 at 1:03 am

    Board James is the killer, he’s just crazy, he imagined that whole phone thing. Dream phone episode was shown how it looked like through his head. But in reality he killed bootsy and mike.

  • Phoenix7786

    May 4, 2015 at 1:12 am

    C’mon happy ending! C’mooooon happy ending!

  • Rayta Marsh

    May 4, 2015 at 1:31 am

    This was an awesome episode! <3

  • Tross

    May 4, 2015 at 1:42 am

    I’m going to go with true. I’m interested to see where this series is going.

  • malekdarshin

    May 4, 2015 at 2:40 am

    False because they’re not dead! (But really true because now he can play board games with their corpses thinking they are still alive, having cut between his live friends playing (what he sees) and their actual corpses.

  • ZomboCombo

    May 4, 2015 at 2:58 am

    Next time: Ouija board?

  • Jason Stosiek

    May 4, 2015 at 3:30 am

    I can’t click on “True” or “False.” I have tried everything! What the fuck am I missing? HELP!

    • bud

      You’ve got to go to YouTube and watch the video. The links are provided if you expand the description.

    • greedo

      May 13, 2015 at 11:40 pm

      Weird. Do you have an ad blocker? If so, disable it and see what happens. That’s all I can think of. Hope it helps!

  • May 4, 2015 at 3:57 am

    Absolutely epic! Now we’re ****ing talking. Superb. Both choices allude that the next episode will be Ouija Board ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Clemens Drewke

    May 4, 2015 at 4:10 am

    I really made an account to partake in answering the question.

    Yes, let him be the killer. We will get to see him battle his psychosis or some other crazy stuff james can come up with. This story is far to good to make him simply “the wrongly accused innocent”. ๐Ÿ˜€

    No matter what the result will be, I bet it will be epic.

  • bud

    May 4, 2015 at 5:49 am

    I really enjoyed this episode, as well as the “Choose Your Own Adventure” feature. Nice job. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Smokingspoon

    May 4, 2015 at 8:57 am

    Board James did not do it!

  • stoney_1

    May 4, 2015 at 11:52 am

    oh, Board James is the killer for sure!! This show is worthy of HBO.
    too much suspence now!

  • Joker83

    May 4, 2015 at 11:58 am

    a new Board James and a new James+Mike! Monday’s are always awesome at Cinemassacre, but this is even awesomer.
    Bonus for me because I definitely remember this Lie Detector game from back in the day–
    Thanks guys!!

  • Kevin Rogers

    The lack of AVGN videos is clearly allowing James express his creativity and the quality speaks for itself. I sill love AVGN but I’m happy to wait for creative vids rather than demand he puts out whatever he can come up with in a couple of weeks. Ask a landscape painter to paint a portrait and it will likely look shit. I’m loving these new Board James vids; he’s clearly worked hard on a story line and the fact he’s dedicating a month to each one, is bringing out his best attributes. Also, true – I love the psychotic character.

  • erik37

    May 4, 2015 at 7:44 pm

    Awesome video!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Your Fucking Guilty!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • unicornprincessofhearts

    May 4, 2015 at 9:11 pm

    I love this video!!!! False all the way baby!

  • Don Skiver

    May 4, 2015 at 11:44 pm

    I just realized something:


    Sounds like he just described the Nerd. ๐Ÿ˜›

  • gluserty

    May 5, 2015 at 1:14 am

    It looks like James has Dissociative Identity Disorder; I wish him the best for the future. Maybe some strong meds will help him out, though that won’t bring back his friends.

    • Shannon Gold

      May 5, 2015 at 7:36 am

      And to those who don’t know what that is… It’s the new term for Multiple Personality Disorder. By the way… I never thought of that. Makes sense.

  • May 5, 2015 at 10:30 am

    What a cool ending!

  • May 5, 2015 at 3:26 pm

    Board James > AVGN > You Know What’s Bullshit?! > James & Mike Mondays

  • Tanooki suit mario

    May 5, 2015 at 5:14 pm

    False!! Bad luck bootsy and mf mike set up the whole thing with an complex system of smoke mirrors and string and maybe a projector. To get back at him for making impossible to win board games as a kid.

  • May 6, 2015 at 12:20 pm

    Good to see Board James back. If the old cast is needed could always do a episode of playing Back to the Future card game and bring the others back ๐Ÿ™‚ just an idea to throw into the hat. Personally I like the horror aspect of Board James.

  • May 6, 2015 at 1:09 pm

    Please do a Jeckyl and Hyde board game! Please do a Jeckyl and Hyde board game! It will resolve everything! Or open new pathways to madness. Either way, can’t lose! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • damon

    May 6, 2015 at 1:53 pm

    dammit… I’m still not sure….

  • greedo

    May 7, 2015 at 2:43 pm

    One last thing. When I watched the false ending this time, I noticed the Ouija board in the background, right when he says, “and I’m gonna prove it”. I’m definitely at the edge of my seat, now!

  • Weldin Dunn

    May 9, 2015 at 5:41 pm

    What if they aren’t even dead??? What if they were all extremely drunk or high, and James was hallucinating them being stabbed? Since they were drunk or high, they fell asleep in the closet and fainted against the door. They couldn’t get in contact with him because of him hiding in his attic! Of course!

  • The Shamster

    May 10, 2015 at 3:57 am

    I chose “False”

    Board James is innocent!

  • Dean Nielsen

    May 12, 2015 at 5:44 pm

    I love how you connected seemingly innocuous details to frame a larger plot in the Board James series. His decent into madness is fun to watch and I can’t wait to see you resurrect Bootsy and Mike with the Ouija board.

  • rabidchild

    May 13, 2015 at 4:25 pm

    Cool idea for the ending. Any way to post the results of views like a poll?

  • Ben_from_G-town

    May 13, 2015 at 11:27 pm

    Oh cool, so it’s a choose your ending thing. I went with False. One could argue that James is crazy and murdered his friends, and that the talking Lie Detector game is his guilty conscious taken form to try to get him to fess up. I say there’s no way that can be true! He has to be innocent! Will future episodes have a different story depending on what result got the most votes or views or something?

    • Ben_from_G-town

      May 13, 2015 at 11:31 pm

      But yeah, I think the Lie Detector game is alive, like the Bucket and the Phone, and it’s fucking with James. In the original episode, Mike never said the bucket was just a toy, or whatever. That’s clear manipulation by the Lie Detector card!

  • May 14, 2015 at 8:41 pm


  • gameboynin

    May 16, 2015 at 11:52 pm

    definitely false.

  • May 17, 2015 at 1:36 am

    i picked true because i thought it would be hilarious, does that make me sadistic?

  • May 21, 2015 at 2:22 am

    I love this show. So glad you are doing more of them.

    This was awesome. XD
    I would love to see a Board James horror movie about how he has hallucinations of the games coming to life and killing his friends, but its really him killing everyone the whole time. 8D

  • flawn scorpion

    May 26, 2015 at 12:52 am

    James I love where this is going, but there has to be a way to bring back bootsy and mutherfucker mike…my vote is False.

    Man, it’s genius!
