YMMV: Board James

  • Awesome Moments:
    • James reaching his Rage Breaking Point and upright screaming at Mike and Bootsy at the end of "Shark Attack".
    • James' acting at the end of "Dream Phone". It's sure to send a chill down your spine.
    • The show's long-awaited return after a two-year period of absence. And it was on April Fools' Day, and it wasn't a joke.
    • James laying waste to Mike's army in "Weapons in Warriors"... When the former had only one guy left!
    • In the "Ouija / Domino Rally" episode, there was Mike appearing as Elvis and killing Mr. Bucket and the Dream Phone, simultaneously saving James.
  • Awesome Music: Every time Bootsy Spankins appears, he also comes with some awesome music for the board game of the episode.
  • Ear Worm:
    • All of the "theme songs" for the different board games. It got to the point where some people actually thought they were from the actual commercials, not knowing they were performed by Bootsy.
    • "When the devil calls your name...YOU BETTER FUCKING ABIIIIIIIDE!"
  • Ensemble Darkhorse: Deadly Danger Dungeon had gotten tons of popularity in its episode that not only did people make their own versions, but Board James even uploaded his own version for people to play.
  • Girl-Game Ghetto: Despite Dream Phone having been made with little girls in mind, it seemed to break out of it when James, Mike, and Bootsy said in the review that they actually enjoyed playing the game themselves.
  • He Really Can Act: James' acting at the end of "Dream Phone" is genuinely terrifying, and really showcases Sanity Slippage.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight:
  • Memetic Molester: Mr. Bucket. He just wants to suck on your balls.
  • Narm:
    • Despite the Dream Phone episode being a fairly effective horror movie pastiche otherwise, the revelation that the phone was the killer is rather silly — particularly when it starts going around the house holding a knife. Yes, a phone somehow holding a knife by its side.
    • The Mr. Bucket episode, which was also Darker and Edgier. The fact that James and Mike allows themselves to be terrorized by a fucking plastic bucket says a lot.
      • In one instance in the episode's, er, "climax", James tells Mr. Bucket to get away from him and instead attack Mike, and the bucket obliges. James then comes over and acts terrified as if he didn't just let the event unfolding in front of his eyes occur.
  • Nightmare Fuel: See here.
  • Suspiciously Similar Song: The combat theme from Weapons and Warriors sounds a lot like He's a Pirate.
