[edit] Transcript

{Open to a slow pan of the game board while the Peasant's Quest theme plays. "Once every thousand years..." appears below.}

ANNOUNCER: Once every thousand years...

{Cut to an above shot. "or...Hundred years," appears below.}

ANNOUNCER: Or... hundred years...

{Cut to another panning shot. "Some period of time..." appears below.}

ANNOUNCER: Er, some period of time... the peasant kingdom of Peasantry is terrorized by...

{The "TROGDOR" song starts playing, as different shots and zooms of the board are shown}


{Abrupt switch to the Jurvy-Skat music from Family Resemblence as the Boardelectrix logo appears against a light blue background}

COMPANY SPOKESMAN: From Boardelectrix, the company that made that game {Jurvy-Skat box appears} Jurvy-Skat, and that game—

{Zoom out of a board game featuring figurines of the Sad Kids and a spinning orange guy with raised arms, an open mouth, and one tooth. The board resembles a backyard with a lawnmower, hammock, and barbecue, with the title written at the bottom.}

COMPANY SPOKESMAN: Don't Make Daddy P.O.'d, comes...

{Cut to Trogdor!! The Board Game with a banner logo, as music switches to low 8-bit instrumental of "TROGDOR"}


STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Trogdor.

COMPANY SPOKESMAN: A cooperative game of burnination, {a few tiles are seen being flipped to the burninated side} majesty, {the Trogdor figurine is shown with majesty lines and a "ding"} and consummate V's. {the "Consummate V's" movement card is shown on a white surface}

{Cut to a panning shot of the board}

COMPANY SPOKESMAN: Available in two varieties:

{Cut to the game box, cards, Trog-Meter, tiles, and meeples}

COMPANY SPOKESMAN: Wingaling Level, {cut to the meeples} with wooden meeples—

{Cut to the game box, cards, Trog-Meter, tiles, meeples, and miniatures}

COMPANY SPOKESMAN: —and Burninator Level, with {cut to the meeples and miniatures} high-quality plastic {stumbles over word} miniatures.

{Cut to Strong Bad at the bar with the game on the table in front of him. Homestar Runner, the King of Town, Marzipan, Strong Sad and Homsar pop into existence around him.}

COMPANY SPOKESMAN: You and up to five of your friends—

STRONG BAD: {eyelids lowered} Friends?

{The Keepers of Trogdor cards are shown: Galgabudge, Cranjegg, Hegeltha, Stonklar, and Worchex}

COMPANY SPOKESMAN: —can take on the roles of the ancient Keepers of Tragdar.

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Trogdor.

{Various item cards are shown: That Dog Tennis Thing 'cept with Fireballs, Ring of Voip, Shield of Cumberdale, and Two Gross Beans}

COMPANY SPOKESMAN: Using your unique powers and enchanted items...

{Cut to footage of the board game being played: the Trogdor figurine being moved and "burninating" the pieces below him, burninating a peasant meeple, and burninating a cottage.}

COMPANY SPOKESMAN: ...take turns controlling the Burninator, in order to achieve your goal of burninating the entire countryside, burninating all the peasants, and of course, burninating all the thatched-roof cottages! {emphasis is put on the end of "cottages", like in Trogdor's song}

{A flame helmet is placed onto a peasant meeple, who is then moved across the board; as it moves, each tile it lands on changes to its burninated appearance, until it lands on the same tile as another peasant and passes the helmet over. A disclaimer appears at the bottom of the screen reading "*Actual tiles do not Billie Jean".}

COMPANY SPOKESMAN: Use the flame helmet, and watch as peasants leave a path of destruction, and even cause chain reactions.

{Cut to the Knight, Trog-Hammer, and Archer figurines. A movement card is played, and a knight is moved into Trogdor, who is then wiggled about indicating damage. One of the peasant figurines is then flicked off of Trogdor's Trog-Meter.}

COMPANY SPOKESMAN: But watch out. The countryside can fight back. Knights can, like, hurt you real bad.

{Zoom in on another movement card, showing the peasants' healing powers. A peasant meeple moves onto a burninated tile, and it is then flipped back to its normal state.}

COMPANY SPOKESMAN: Pesky peasants can repair the countryside.

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Ugh, what jerks!

{The archer meeple moves next to Trogdor, and the controlling hand spreads thumb and pointer finger to emulate the path of arrows. Two dotted lines fly to the left and right of the archers, the left arrow hitting Trogdor.}

COMPANY SPOKESMAN: And the archer twins can shoot in two directions.

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Arrowed! {a word bubble appears by Trogdor, reading:} "Ow, my beef!"

{Cut to Strong Bad and Homestar Runner at the bar, playing the game together. They are both badly acting, and their lines are wooden and forced. A can of Coldson Lite is next to Homestar, and a bowl of peanuts is next to Strong Bad.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: I drew Wingaling! {close-up shot of the "Wingaling" movement card} I can start my turn anywhere on the game board!

STRONG BAD: I got Consummate V's! {moves Trogdor in a diamond motion} I can move diagonally!

{Cut to a close-up of the table, where a Trog-Hammer card is placed}

STRONG BAD: Uh-oh! I drew the Trog-Hammer! {zoom in on the Trog-Hammer figure on the board}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: That increases difficulty, and makes for exciting play! {Homestar and Strong Bad both look expectantly at the camera}

{Camera wipe to further into the game. All the tiles have been burninated, and all the cottages are burninated except for one, which Trogdor is two spaces north of.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: We're almost there! {Homestar lifts up the "Shot Put" movement card, which the camera zooms in on} I drew Shot Put!

{Focus on Trogdor and the unburnt cottage. A dotted line travels from Trogdor's mouth to the cottage, simulating a fireball being thrown.}


STRONG BAD: DOOJ! {flips over the roof of the cottage, making it burninated}

{Cut to a wide shot}

STRONG BAD: We burninated the last thatched-roof cottage!


{Cut to a silhouette of a balding man. A question mark appears inside of his head, resembling Trogdor}

COMPANY SPOKESMAN: And now you can do it. By pledging to this... hard drive. {a hard drive comes in from the right next to the silhouette, making a loud noise while its light flickers} Fund... drive. {the Kickcheater logo comes in from the left beneath both of them, and the hard drive slouches down before disappearing to the right again} What is it? Fundraiser drive.

{Cut to the game box and assets being displayed, sans miniatures}


STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Trogdor.

COMPANY SPOKESMAN: From Boardelectrix. And the Tragdar comes in the night.

STRONG BAD: {he rises into view, and the camera focuses on him} Ugh, it's Dor! It's Trogdor! IT'S TROGDOR! And the Trogdor comes in the night!

{A short stop motion film plays of Trogdor approaching a cottage and peasant, and burninating them both. Cut to black. Fade in to interior of Videlectrix office. A piece of paper with "boar" written on it covers both the "Vi" in the Videlectrix logo, and the "t" is missing.}

VIDELECTRIX ONE: What do you mean there's no graphics in board games?

VIDELECTRIX TWO: Well, there's graphic design...

VIDELECTRIX ONE: You don't design graphics!


VIDELECTRIX ONE: You... {slap} progrum them!
