    hahaha! awesome. Board James, we need more of you πŸ™‚

    also, have you ever heard of the horror-themed board game called Nightmare? you play it along with a VHS tape featuring a countdown, and a spooky “host” that interrupts at times and scares the crap outta you on the tv. there are even 2 “video explansion” sets for it! if you’ve never played it, check it out! it’s actually pretty awesome πŸ™‚

    keep up the good work James! (and friends) πŸ˜›

    Best Rube Goldberg machine ever. Glad to hear new Bootsy song.

    Where on earth is Kevin Finn at the moment? Seriously needs to be The Fight Promoter character again soon. Also you might as well bring back Richard for another AVGN Mike!

    • July 3, 2015 at 4:13 pm

      Must say that ending is incredibly creative with all the Board Games going off in a chain reaction!

    James, Mike, Bootsy,

    Make a horror movie. You know you want to. Just do it.

      The whole Board James saga IS one long horror movie πŸ™‚

    • July 3, 2015 at 11:59 pm

      I agree with you. I would love to see them do a full length horror movie. Perhaps they can do another kickstarter like James did for the AVGN Movie.

      Fuck horror, they’ve got to do an ensemble comedy. Their combined antics are too funny!

    Use bootsy more! See all kinda crossovers for example this omegaalphasin dude…so shitty. Throw in more bootsy shit instead.

    Gotta love Bad Luck Bootsy and Board James

    • July 3, 2015 at 6:00 pm

      And Mutherfucker Mike who can’t stop cheating.

      • Glorious Gerbil

        July 3, 2015 at 6:26 pm

        Motherfucker mike is mostly just annoying! Get rid of him…

    I remember the yellow one never blowing the powder puff very well

    That was cool man! So cool!

  • ToadRoad

    July 3, 2015 at 8:38 pm

    That was absolutely hilarious. Bad Luck Bootsy would be that friend who feels the need to explain why everything is funny. I liked too that it was a fun review of the game with just enough of the mystery subplot ‘what’s really going on with this guy and his friend’

    On the downside the framing was really off in the opening shot. You could barely see Mike.

    • bud

      July 4, 2015 at 4:35 am

      He’s also the friend who feels the need to be extremely, over-the-top perverted for no reason. I’ll never forget the classic line: “I like my coffee how I like my women — with my dick in it!” πŸ˜›

    They look like Q*bert or something πŸ˜€

    This is classic Board James, along with Bootsy song and Bootsy fucking everything up in the end. Like. πŸ˜€

    My ass is gone, it went off while laughing so hard! Great Episode Guys. The bootsy dry humor was cool, giving him more character

  • July 4, 2015 at 4:23 pm

    that was blast man, like man that was blast

    Nice πŸ™‚

  • Don Skiver

    July 4, 2015 at 6:35 pm

    I have no idea where the hell he’s going with all this shit. Is it like fight club where Mike and Bootsy are like Tyler Durden or something?

    I just really hope there’s a payoff for all of this ambiguity in the end.

      Don’t get pissy. Have faith in the James.

  • July 4, 2015 at 7:19 pm

    What’s with the scratch marks on the floor at the end of the video? Is Board James in Prison? Counting the days past?

  • July 4, 2015 at 8:55 pm

    I think Board James is in prison and is hallucinating how things used to be, the way Bootsy and Mike faded out in the middle of the vid kinda hints that this is all happening in his head. Can’t wait for the payoff.

  • greedo

    Yep, it’s definitely not over. Notice the spaced out look Mike had towards the beginning. I think that they’re all dead. We can see that, when Bootsy and Mike faded out (or appeared to) at one point. Oh, and did anyone notice towards the end, that the one of the boardgames that dropped from the shelf was called, “Ghosts”?

    The plot thickens!

  • July 4, 2015 at 11:25 pm

    This video blows the entire time. Literally. Blows balls. Literally.

  • Ben_from_G-town

    Okay, so we still don’t know if those two are ghosts or just James’ hallucinating. The game stuff was great, though. Was that an original song? Sounds totally like the commercial would be. The leafblower segment followed by the rube goldberg thing was great. πŸ˜€

    James cool man πŸ™‚

  • July 5, 2015 at 8:43 am

    Great one guys ! Was hilarious. Ending was neat !

  • Cal Lugosi

    July 5, 2015 at 10:07 am

    Awwww man, I remember owning this as a kid. The yellow one did seem to have a problem with mine too, guess it was a common problem

  • creecreehoneybee

    Great work! I laughed out loud here all by myself…

  • July 5, 2015 at 9:48 pm

    Such wacky fun

  • Grandmasterp

    July 5, 2015 at 11:40 pm

    Oh, Fuck yeah!

  • July 6, 2015 at 3:58 am

    Short, but awesome.

  • Sean Churchill

    July 6, 2015 at 11:42 am

    Seriously one of the funniest concepts for a video, which of course worked well with the game itself! Great job, guys. How did you pull off the final “domino effect” sequence?! Wicked.

  • July 6, 2015 at 11:59 am

    Nice try to return to form, but it’s not quite there yet. It’s coming though πŸ™‚ You really need to just go back to the original style with Bootsy coming in. When he’s just there from the beginning makes him feel like a real friend, not that awkward guy that’s half friend/half douchebag.

  • Aaron1375

    That was a funny episode; however, I can see why this game is rare. Not enough to it. Strange cryptic hint that things are not quite right was cool too.

  • Mark Knight

    July 9, 2015 at 10:20 pm

    hahha, I now think Bootsy is super cool.

  • Jesse Ohrn

    July 10, 2015 at 3:24 pm

    This probably has been figured out but in the ouija episode before mike, bootsy ,and James put there hands on the plantia you can see letters that spells out ” Devils”.

  • Rayta Marsh

    July 29, 2015 at 1:35 pm

    This has to be my favorite Board James yet!!!! This is so goddamn funny. Thank ya’ll so much for making these. I love your work. >:) I love you guys.

    well that was just silly πŸ˜›

    Didn’t you feel that flipping the character over and squeezing it upside down worked better than having them upright? The yellow and blue characters would make those foam balls fly like crazy
