This is a "Wild Mass Guess" entry, where we pull out all the sanity stops on theorizing. The regular entry on this topic is elsewhere. Please see this programme note.
Board James
The Nerd and Board James exist in the same continuity.
  • Some of the Board James videos take place in the Nerd's room, and in his review of Dragonstrike he had used similar powers as the Nerd.
  • Since Board James is basically an Author Avatar, you can argue that they have being seen together.
  • There's also the fact that Pat stole the Nintendo World Championship cartridge from James in this video , and days later he was contacted by the Nerd to ask him to bring it to his apartment.
  • In the Halloween episode of 2007 of AVGN, some of the Board James caps can be seen in the closet in which the Nerd keeps the Atari he gives to the kids.
  • Also, Board James appeared in Kickassia. Since the Nerd has also appeared in TGWTG, they obviously share the same universe.

Bad Luck Bootsy's next appearance will have his face be covered in bandages.
In his first appearance, Bootsy accidentally gouges his own eye out when he overcranks Tornado Rex. In his next appearance, he's wearing an eyepatch, and at the end of the video, he gets spooked by the donut machine exploding and dumps his coffee all over himself. It goes without saying that in every video he's in, he's going to progressively dismember himself in various ways.
  • You were right! Bootsy appeared covered in bandages in the Splat! episode. Thankfully he didn't permanently dismember himself this time...

The Zelda board game will become Board James's ET.
Because if you notice the comments section of the videos, a lot of people ask for it since it appeared in the Heroquest episode. The same way everybody used to ask for the Atari ET to AVGN, and James used to taunt us a lot that he would eventually get to it in the videos.

Board James went insane after the Dream Phone episode.
During the ending you can clearly see him smiling and making faces at the camera, and he has a good point to be mentally unstable—he saw the corpses of both of his best friends and fought an evil toy phone. He was probably checked into a mental facility which is why there haven't been any new episodes, but that brings up this question: Was Board James the killer the whole time? Was the night just a figment of his imagination?

The "Dream Phone" episode is not the series finale, and the series will be revived in the future.
Recently, an update on the Cinemassacre website advertised the DVD for The Angry Video Game Nerd and Board James. Said Board James DVD is labelled as volume 1, which contains every episode of Board James made so far. This could mean that there will be a volume 2, which means that more episodes of Board James will be made in the future.
