It started out as a SpinOff of WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd, but is now its own series. It follows the same MidReviewSketchShow formula that the [[WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd AVGN]] helped popularize, but features a much less ''[[CausticCritic ''enraged]]'' style of reviewing, often focusing on the good too.

* DuctTapeForEverything: Used in the Weapons and Warriors episode while setting up the game, because glue takes time to dry, and all is going to get fucked up again anyway.
** James seems to get a bad time keeping the pieces together with the tape. [[FridgeBrilliance The thing is, he's actually using masking blue tape, which has a weaker adhesive than regular tapes to A) be easily removable, and B) prevent further damage that a stronger tape could cause.]]

** In the "Video Games" episode if you pause the video just right around 1:08 [[spoiler:you can see an image of Mike and Bootsy just as Board James is explaining being trapped for eternity with two ghosts.This foreshadows the reveal in "Board James Mythology Explained" that they have alredy died, and each death just sends them deeper into an another boardgame.]]

[[AsHimself Board James]] is a pretty normal guy, a kid at heart who collects a great variety of BoardGames as a hobby, and reviews them. Sometimes Board James does his reviews alone, and from time to time he's joined by his [[VitriolicBestBuds vitriolic best bud]] [[{{Jerkass}} Motherfucker Mike]], who is a bit of a cheater when it comes to playing the games. And when there's a place on the board for an extra player, there's [[TheJinx Bad Luck Bootsy]], an annoying but friendly guy who is prone to ruining the games and who causes nothing but trouble to James, Mike and himself. The series also gradually develops a bit of a [[CerebusSyndrome shockingly deep]] [[MythaArc overarching plot]] as it goes.

The show was put on hiatus in April 2013 after the Dream Phone episode. [[WordOfGod According to James]], he had plans on continuing the series with a new season, but had fallen behind due to working on the AVGN movie. He promised that more episodes would come, and the promise was fulfilled when the series returned on, of all days, AprilFoolsDay 2015.

The finale of the third season (not 'period', as it stands) came out on December 4, 2015, and centered around the board game ''Nightmare'' of the Atmosfear series while incorporating numerous other board games within it. James Rolfe himself clarifies the more confusing aspects of the episode [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qE6Gmy2t-Es here]].

** The ''Nightmare'' episode, because [[MindScrew so many subplots were unfolding simultaneously]] that all of the characters' fates are somewhat vague. Even with the MindScrewdriver James provided, it's still unclear if James has really, truly been defeated.
