    Wait, what? Checking date… So it’s BoardJames Monday? ๐Ÿ˜›

    • June 1, 2015 at 12:28 pm

      Why’s this episode gotta be so fucking AWESOME!?
      The suspense in the buildup was almost to much to take ๐Ÿ˜›
      The very ending makes me love it even more, although I wouldn’t have found it necessary to include.
      Nice one, very nice one.

      Two for the price of one!

      But seriously, what in the actual fuck just happened? It’s like James is taking all the fan theories he’s read and is deciding to just run with it. I know we’re playing up the whole “Board James is crazy” thing, but I’m really hoping that it’s just a red herring and Board James isn’t nearly as crazy as we think he is.

      Or maybe James will pull a “Tommy Westphall” ending and have everything that happened be the product of some kid’s imagination while staring at a snow globe.

      “It’s not a tumor!””Jim? Your name’s Jim..” How many references can they add more xD

      It somewhat makes me think of The Regular Show but even more trippy.

    This would have made a great Halloween episode. Fun video!

  • June 1, 2015 at 1:23 pm

    I don’t think they are really back, all of this is happening in Board James’ deranged mind.

    Wow, this was the best episode ever! Hell, even better than the AVGN episodes I thought were best!
    James, you did it again!

  • frostare

    June 1, 2015 at 1:31 pm

    I knew James was innocent! Of course his thoughts became a mess while in jail, but I’m convinced this is more than a black or white scenario.

    I’m sure the other side of the board is pleased as well…

    Hopefully this is the end of the Board James mythology business. I don’t mind seeing silly stuff with the board games like Mr. Bucket coming to life, but Dream Phone was just a copy of that episode and now Board James just acts like AVGN. These vids are the best when they are just fun plays and reviews of nostalgic board games.

  • June 1, 2015 at 1:55 pm

    Wow this episode was Two thumps Up!! LMAO! Freaky ending thou.

  • June 1, 2015 at 2:36 pm

    That was fucking suspenseful! Cool to see Mike playing Elvis Presley. BTW Mike, will you ever do a video on Elvis, maybe a top 10 or something else, that show your appreciation for the one and only? It could be cool to see your Elvis knowledge in display.
    I myself can’t get enough of his music, even the soundtracks interest me (mostly the ones released by FTD, because of outtakes etc.) But the American Sound Studio period is my absolute favorite.
    Greetings from Denmark!

  • June 1, 2015 at 2:42 pm

    OMG OMG OMG When 8:54 comes on the Letters minus the RED L spell DEVILS!!!James is holding hands with devils NOT his friends resurrected!
    “Devil Mike” as I will call him here, is who voices the bucket. He called James Jim, as if somehow disconnected from James like he doesn’t know him like Motherfucker Mike would. “Devil Bootsy” is the voice of the phone. This was no accident. When Bootsy and Mike are telling him everything is okay, they were obviously up to something. They may have trapped him somehow but that’s just speculation.
    James quoted dozens off Necronomicon like spells (and some from it) who knows what spirits he invoked. I’d like to think that this is the same kid who was haunted by Snix and that all these years later he’s returned and is haunting him again in new forms, or maybe these are Snix’s lackeys, and more will come who knows. Either way James will not like his new friends nor does he really like his old ones.
    James may also be hallucinating like in the speculating post http://cinemassacre.com/2015/05/29/a-fans-board-james-analysis/ and this may further prove his theory as well so definitely keep an open mind when reading this.
    Side note, did anyone else notice when BJ is putting away his Dream Phone game, who else noticed the poster “You have now crossed over into THE TWILIGHT ZONE”. This is an obvious easter egg, but maybe, just maybe there’s a LOT more to it. James is a clever film maker and will not hesitate to add old film nuances like hidden plot elements in clear sight. The only thing is why IS there an extra “L” thrown into the mix. I had to make an account here just so I could share my thoughts and hopefully get some feedback as well. This is a mystery and James isn’t holding anything back.

      lol Mike calling James Jim was a Star Trek joke.

  • June 1, 2015 at 2:44 pm

    James plz do a tutorial for setting up an Atari I just bought an old one and I have no idea for setting it up

  • June 1, 2015 at 2:48 pm

    That… Was some of the weirdest shit… Saw the “devil” looming in the corner. And who knew MFMike was Elvis in a previous life? :p

  • dcco

    June 1, 2015 at 2:58 pm

    as an elvis fan, mike getting to cameo as elvis was amazing

  • mrgerrit

    June 1, 2015 at 2:59 pm

    I was like wtf at the 2 min mark with that skull appearing.

    Great episode yet again!

  • June 1, 2015 at 3:23 pm

    That was fucking awesome, James! I loved the story, the plot, the build up, and the acting was superb. I can’t wait to see what you come up with next! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Great and creepy episode! Can’t wait for another one ๐Ÿ™‚

  • June 1, 2015 at 3:48 pm

    Love how you knocked over the No Respect game. Still can’t get no respect.

  • June 1, 2015 at 3:55 pm

    Great video you guys! Wait a minute! Where’s the Fight Promoter? No respect for him, no respect at all!

  • June 1, 2015 at 4:06 pm

    AAAAWWWW SHUCCKS! Thank you for not mentioning the film ‘Ouija’ that terrible horror film from last year! Mind you James review The Descent, Let the Right One In, The Women In Black, The Babadook and It Follows on this year’s Monster Madness!

  • June 1, 2015 at 4:23 pm

    You guys are epic as shit.

  • Shannon Gold

    June 1, 2015 at 4:33 pm

    I still think Board James did it. I’m convinced he’s in a coma after the blood loss. So what he is seeing is just a dream.

  • Dan021

    June 1, 2015 at 4:59 pm

    Wow, this was incredible. These videos are just pure fun for the mind. Trying to understand the puzzle behind the Board James episodes
    is as much fun as watching the review of the games. Also, it was really cool that you guys spent so much time putting the dominos down. Really gave this episode a special feeling… All of my thanks to you James, Mike and Bootsy!

  • June 1, 2015 at 5:50 pm

    Loved this one, James! The geeky references and call backs to previous videos were hysterical!

    Hmm.. with the repeating at the end, and the crazy look from Board James, are they alive or is it just him being crazy again?! :O

  • June 1, 2015 at 8:13 pm

    i kinda hoped the camera would pan out on james and show he was talking to himself,but it was still an awesome episode!

  • Phoenix7786

    June 1, 2015 at 8:28 pm

    Damn I am hoping they’re alive but I can’t help feel the ending is another allusion that this is still some part of some hallucination.

    • Shannon Gold

      June 1, 2015 at 9:09 pm

      I think James is hallucinating… Especially that laugh at the end… Board James is a baby-faced nutcase and I absolutely love it!

  • ScaryManiac

    June 1, 2015 at 8:41 pm

    it’s wee-yah! it’s supposed to be a double yes. Oui = french for yes and ja = german for yes. that’s the true answer.

  • ikensee

    June 1, 2015 at 8:49 pm

    Sweet! Loved this episode! Great to see Mike back dressed up as a character! The ending seemed like it was trying to say it was the last Board James, which makes me sad if that’s the case. If not, then TORNADO REX in the background!!! I loved that game, but Rex broke when I was a kid and never got another one.

    June 1, 2015 at 9:59 pm

    Fucking brilliant!! Thank you Jim, I really appreciate you bringing MM & Bootsy back…. Amazing

    Full length board james movie PLLEEEEAAASSSEEE ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Andrew

    June 1, 2015 at 10:11 pm

    Things I love about this episode:
    1. Everyone’s back
    2. Bootsy’s “comforting” (shhhh… shut the fuck up) lol.
    3. Mike dressing up and playing a character like in the old AVGN episodes. He’s good at it, he should do it more ๐Ÿ™‚

    Well done boys – entertaining and funny. Loved it.

  • dah jabbah

    June 1, 2015 at 10:50 pm

    My theory: Board James killed himself.

  • June 2, 2015 at 1:05 am

    So James is Vincent Price? Wha..?

  • Tross

    June 2, 2015 at 1:53 am

    Well, it’s good that you brought back Mike and Bootsy. Now you can get back to good old fashioned Board James episodes, and you will actually have other players. Now we just have to wait and see how long it takes for Bootsy to lose an eye again.

  • Kent Gissing

    June 2, 2015 at 2:00 am

    Damn… these Board James episodes are getting extremely epic ^^ Me likey. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • June 2, 2015 at 2:49 am

    this is one of your best episodes to date.

  • Debtor

    June 2, 2015 at 3:56 am

    It’s official, James is crazy.

  • June 2, 2015 at 5:06 am

    You’re going to keep milking this until Halloween aren’t you? I’m going to pretend to hate it while secretly loving it. HURRY UP AND EXPLAIN WHATS GOING ON!

  • June 2, 2015 at 5:07 am

    Also Mikevis kicked a hunk of burning ass.

  • Goro3d

    June 2, 2015 at 8:09 am

    Excellent episode and so happy to see Mike and Bootsy back on the scene (resurrection) :)!
    Can’t wait to see more future episodes with Mike and Bootsy in it!
    Great work James! I was always hoping you would do a game that would resurrect Mike and bootsy and sure enough you delivered wahoo. As for domino rally I had that g;loow oin the dark one with the ghost and big glowing skull it was awesome I spent hours setting it up after I got bored with SNES and NES games that sucked lol. Great Job James, Mike, and Bootsy keep them coming I love them all :)!

    “is there a Z?” “I don’t know, man” That made me laugh pretty f’n hard lol

  • June 2, 2015 at 4:23 pm

    James – this is some of the best work you’ve ever done. Totally absurd, lovingly nostalgic and gut-wrenchingly funny – you really should feel proud of what you do. FUCKING GOOD SHOW SIR.

  • greedo

    June 2, 2015 at 4:31 pm

    Pretty good vid. This whole story line has more twists and turns than a Hitchcock movie. And there still are no clear answers. Are Bootsy and Mike still alive, or not? Is this real, or is it all a twisted fantasy inside B. James’ brain? We don’t have enough evidence to prove that B. James isn’t hallucinating.

    After seeing this, there’s one thing I can say with absolutely certainty… Board James is CRAAAAZY.

  • June 2, 2015 at 6:21 pm

    I’m at work watching this. “Hunka Hunka Bucket Fuckit!” My co-workers literally jump up to see if I’m ok since I’m choking on my lunch with laughter. I have not laughed at something so hard in a long time. You shit gold James! (or Mike or Bootsy or Finn or whoever wrote that line)

    • June 2, 2015 at 10:06 pm

      That line was ad-lib.

      • June 3, 2015 at 12:55 pm

        The timing, tone of voice, etc. is perfection! It’s now my text alert on my phone. Haha!

  • Jcr3ws

    June 2, 2015 at 9:02 pm

    Wow in the fan analysis reply I didnt think I would be correct when I said he would take on a Ouija board or wee-ja.. Boardj is certainly nutty as squirrel shit for sure whether it is if he killed any one or hallucinating / dreaming he is 100% crazy for sure.

  • Alyson Furze

    June 2, 2015 at 10:38 pm

    OMG that video was amazing! So glad to see Mike and Bootsy back.

  • June 2, 2015 at 11:46 pm

    Awesome episode! One of the best of all times!

  • Garrett South

    June 3, 2015 at 1:36 am

    Wow you have really honed your craft James (and crew). That was fine tuned and jam packed. I Loved all the references and the overall eerie tone. What was with the tally marks scratched into what I assume was a water heater in the final shot with the Cinemassacre logo?

    Also Bootsie’s eyes and mouth shopped over Dangerfield’s face was visually disturbing. Had to rewatch and pause to see why his face bothered me for the instant it was shown.

    Can’t wait for the next installment. It’s almost like the old serials.

  • June 3, 2015 at 4:26 am

    Nicely done James. Can’t wait till the next one!
    Also fantastic job as Elvis Mike !

  • June 3, 2015 at 10:56 am

    Well it’s nice that Mother Fucker Mike and Bad Luck Bootsy will be back…or are they!

  • June 4, 2015 at 12:28 am

    LMFAO!.!>! hunka-hunka-bucket-fuck it! omg mike I think you found your calling.

  • Antony Pols

    June 4, 2015 at 2:54 pm

    Mike, this may have already been asked somewhere in the comments, but did you just make a little reference to ‘Black Dynamite’ right there in the Elvis song?
    Maybe BD got it from somewhere else..
    Anyways, Love you guys! Keep up the awesome work you do!

    June 5, 2015 at 3:39 am

    Obvioulsy it was JAMES who died and he is in some kind of purgatory. FORCED to play board games!

      That would be the Necronomicon from the Evil Dead series. Makes sense that it would be kickin around given Ash vs. Evil Dead is on its way.

  • June 14, 2015 at 1:02 pm

    I’m sure that many have said already the same thing, but this was the spirit and the tone that the Nerd Movie should have had.

    Excelent episode, I could have certainly watched a two hours episode like this =)

  • June 15, 2015 at 11:43 am

    BAM! Called it two months ago! I was ready to send in my 1960 Ouija board too!

    June 15, 2015 at 9:25 pm

    Even though its just a piece of wood/plastic, never a good idea to mess around with a Ouila board just because of its premise. Pretty much playing right into the Devils hands. And the idea they market(ed) it to kids let alone anyone. I remember watching this one kids show where the entire thing was this grown adult teaching them how to speak to spirits of the dead. I was just thinking..these people must really hate their kids to get them into it. It never dawned on any of them them what they were doing was pretty irresponsible. Not one of the parents thought maybe going to church or something might be better than talking to Satan for the afternoon. That far off the self.
