Straight from the mailbag comes a plea for help! He wants to learn D&D, but doesn’t know how. Have no fear! I’ll teach you the same way I learned how, by playing Dragon Strike!
Beware the Sacrilege!
For the past five years jacking up on coke and urinating on prostitutes was a way of life for Stanley. Then Stanley saw this video. Stanley knows now what shall be his destiny. Stanley must find every single tape of “Dragon Strike”,get jacked up on coke and urinate on it. Stanley is all better now. Stanley thanks you, Spoony.
I have a dead prostitute in my closet.
Roll the die!
This for some reason is my favorite spoony video
One of the Spoony one’s best video’s
This commentary stuff never gets old. Great display of wit, Spoony.
I have never laughed so hard before in my life! Who made this VHS tape? I want a copy!
Damn you Spoony and your Holly reference joke–now I have to go dig out my old Red Dwarf tapes. D:
Pen and paper role playing games FTW.
I play GURPS (Generic Universal Role Playing System) and have almost every if not all the supplements.
Personally I find it to be better than D&D ’cause it focuses on many other things then combat and is very, very customizable without making it feel homebrew.
I love p&p ! I play a german one and i gotta say its a little diffrent from what i´ve seen.
This is the second video that made me headdesk out of laughter… within the first minute.
The warrior guy would fit perfectly to The Village People :)
And I can’t resist the feeling that the thief would be a good SM mistress with her whip :D
whenever i get bored or depressed which is alot, i just visit your site and watch your videos and they never fail to cheer me up. so i just wanted to say thanks for making the world a more entertaining place.
if you read these comments, i just want to know if you will ever do a Friday the 13th review for the NES, yeah i know AVGN trashed it already, but you are a better reviewer although i like the nerd you are better. by the way Friday the 13th the game, is the reason im so screwed up, that game was just bad.
Ah, the Chick Tracks
People, google for those badly drawn comics, they are a damn gold mine of comedy from a sad religious shut in
Man I wish my brother and cousins would’ve been into this stuff when I was growing up, even Dragon Strike would’ve been better than the 20th family game of Monopoly
Does any one know how to make levels in doom and doom 2, i need to know how for school programming class
And he kicked him-self in the head.
Hah! Nice “The Cask of Amontillado” reference. This is such a poorly made video. 200 ft drop but they land on their feet and stumble a bit. WTF?
D&D is probably the best roleplaying game out there, as long as you have the patience for it. Actually, I think the atmosphere towards pen/paper roleplaying games is improving, because everybody I talk to about it seems actually INTERESTED in it and they actually say it sounds fun after I explain it.
Also… believe it or not, I got an actual human female to play a few weeks ago.
Nothing seems to be easier than seeing someone whom you can help but not helping.
I suggest we start giving it a try. Give love to the ones that need it.
God will appreciate it.
Great Review man loved it I can watch it over and over again and get the same fun out of it :)
For some bizarre reason this video reminds me of 97% off all Deadmines pugs I have done in World of Warcraft
shining force 3 reference ftw
wow i cant belive this is an INSTRUCTIONAL movie and not just a crappy movie
loved this…especially all the random references!!!!

Woah, what’s with all the Viagra spam? O.o
Awesome video, I can’t believe I laughed that hard at it. I kept looking for a certain talking gumball machine and golden robot. Well done sir!
Feeling brave tonight? Hm? I love this review! I’ve watched it more than any other! I love your reviews, Noah! You crack me up!
I love how the wizard in his great intelligence, simply restates what the dwarf said about him being able to destroy the Sunstone since he made it. Kinda reminds me how Timon would take Pumba’s idea and present them as his own. Love your movie and game review videos, Spoony.
I like how the dwarf is the “only one” who can destroy it, but doesn’t actually DO ANYTHING in the end, they just shoot arrows and magic at it.
yes red dwarf wooop
Of all your commentaries i love this one the most!
“Good, because i almost forgot to tell you…” – “I’m banging your wife!” etc. etc.
Holy crap! I have been trying for years to remember what this RPG-style board game I used to have was! I am so happy that I randomly stumbled in here from youtube videos! Oh thank you!
This is one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen! Almost every line you say is a stitch! Kudos on the E.A.P’s The Cask of Amontillado reference, that was subtle, but genius!
Haha! Richard Garriott casts the highest level fireballs! Awesome
Ahh! I had this game! I always felt a bit cheated that the mini’s you got with it didn’t actually look like the ones used in the video, but I did have a European version of it, so maybe that was it?
I didn’t actually enjoy the game as much as I did Hero Quest, but that video got re-watched a lot! (Mainly for the unintentional comedy… and the Thief. Probably more the Thief… Hey! I was young!)
Great MST3K-esque take on the vid, anyway. I loved the various D&D references and the ‘hidden-room’ ref was excellent.
I love how the actors manage to ham it up without laughing. I gotta wonder how they managed to do this given the shitty script…
“Fount of Stupidity!”
Sounds like a sequel title…
Hey! They king played Mr. Twinkaceti on the early episodes of “Perfect Strangers.” The actor is Ernie Sabella:
Hey! The king played Mr. Twinkaceti on the early episodes of “Perfect Strangers.” The actor is Ernie Sabella:
LMAO, great job :)
Oh come on! My comment refreshed the page =[
The DM has an awesome voice. Wish he’d be my DM.
If you ask me Treguard makes a much better DM then the guy in this video.
Heh. This was hilarious. I did love the reference to Baldur’s Gate, though I dun know if there were any castles in Baldur’s Gate. There was one in Baldur’s Gate 2 tho’.
Now I really want to play this stupid game…
Dear God….Mike Adamle.
I can’t believe you passed up the opportunity to crack a joke when they were talking about nailing the enemy.
Casks of Amontillado! I never caught that reference to that Edgar Allan Poe Story! Awesome Spoony!
I just noticed something weird: the announcer at the end said, “Everything came down, hair and everything.”
….there’ve been incidents when the hair didn’t come down?
Hey hey, Mazes and Monsters is an awesome movie! Well as a movie it sucks balls, but watching it as someone who plays RPGs it’s hilarious. It gets better and better every time I watch it and more of the stupidity put in gets revealed to me. Well, of course it can’t rival the Chick Tracks, but then again – what CAN?
Yours was better then the nerds Spoony
Here’s an interesting bit of trivia: the guy who plays the Warrior in Dragon Strike and Malibu on American Gladiators was also the voice of Agent Snake in Terror TRAX, and even reprised his role in the Terror TRAX FMV game. And by an amazing coincidence, the narrator in Dragon Strike also appeared in that game as Dr. Hemos. Small world, eh?
So yeah, great video as always, Spoonster.
“Written and Directed by Flint Dille”
Amazing that no one has noticed this has the stamp of a guy who wrote and story edited for G.I. Joe and the Transformers, including everyone’s favorite Transformers five-parter.
Hey, maybe the wizard should give the warrior his coyote gear, seeing as warrior is a child of mother nature…
Mystery Science Theater 2009.
It had me rollin’.
sad thing is this was quite a bit better than that dungeons and dragons cartoon from the early 80s if I remember.
Also sorta like the repub party.
Btw why isnt this posted to TGWTG?
lol, I just noticed American Gladiator is starting in Finland next week, go Malibu
Malibu is so dreamy :3
You watched Red Dwarf?
Your blue robot always reminded me of the little Critters things, or whatever they where called, from that series.
They were called Skutters, except for one or two that had actual names like Bob. =)
Malibu Barbie– 3, 6, 9, damn s/he fine!
Have you ever played Space Crusade? It was made by the same people who made Hero Quest (I think) and it was based off Warhammer 40000. I loved to play it as a kid but now I can’t really get anyone to play….
Stop napping! and Cask of Amontillado
I dunno how i feel about Baldurs Gate (well– the second one). Too young to remember. Must attempt to redownload it and play it. (and fail…)
The Wizard reminded me of Christopher Walken…I think he was trying to b e Christopher Walken!
Spoony, I believe I’ve just fallen in love with you. Why is it that I get every single reference you make? Funky!
I remember this, my bro had it when I was like…. four so I don’t remember it that well, all I remember is watching the video for it like ten thousand times.
god those tree puns slew me
and i cant believe you didnt make fun of the “nailing” part lol
well I own a copy of heroquest, but do the diffrent versions have diffrent classes, in mine it´s babarian, dwarf, mage and elf… just curius if it´s so or if spoony simply forgot the exact classes
There’s a problem with this video! It keeps cutting off at 26:54!
Can you please fix it Spoony?
I don’t see any similarities between this video and this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PDF9mAHSWZg
That guy who saved the wizard awfully looks like Geoff Mead from Buffy. O_o Please tell me I’m wrong.
We must fuck, I mean nail Taraptus
what’s the deal? there are some things on this video that are different. i remember Spoony saying, “Hey bows don’t kill people” and now he says, “Hey people kill people”. Is this a different audio track?
To think, Mike Adamle went on to become General Manager of WWE Raw…for about a month.
I remember getting that game when i was little, and i was really fired up about it, because i always wanted to play D&D but it seemed to complicated and i couldnt find any of the books. So i was really excited about getting this game, and i watched the video and it completely kill all interest i had in D&D type gaming. I just threw the game in a closet, eventually lost all the pieces to it and threw it in the trash. I honestly thought that D&D was as gay as in that video. I was kinda right, because i ended up playing it many years later, and wasnt impressed at all. So i’m kinda glad this vid destroyed any hopes i had for it, maybe it saved me from spending my teenage years rolling dice and dressing as a final fantasy character for fun.
Im suprised no comment on “We must nail Teraptis.”
“It’s pretty sad when you have to remind the Cleric to turn undead.” Haha, that cracked me up.
Aside from the awful and cheesy video, this game looks awesome. The video sort of reminds me of Magic: The Gathering’s introduction video with the Starter Set, the cheese factor that is. I will say though, the video is a pretty decent interpretation of a D&D game; player interaction with the surroundings, and even character “conflicts” (ranger’s comment towards wizard’s hat). I can see how this could help a newcomer get acquainted with the game basics. Thankfully with the rise of PC gaming, I learned some D&D basics through the Baldur’s Gate game series, but it was still many years before I finally had a chance to play an actual campaign.
D&D was difficult to get into for me simply because I didn’t know where to begin. Not knowing anyone who was familiar with it, and going to a book store and seeing a shelf full of several $30+ books, I never wanted to take my chances with some random book. It really is overwhelming for any one who is totally ignorant of the game, not to mention the complete mentality of people towards the game due to stereotypes, as well as the taboo associated with it. All it takes is a good group of people to play it with, and that can pretty much make or break your attitude towards the game. I absolutely love it and proudly admit that, and even my girlfriend thoroughly enjoys what is now her first D&D campaign ever!
I also have to mention that your video’s and commentary are phenomenal! Your videos are on par to watching a television show due to their length, and I love all of the random references that you throw in! Keep it up!
Sharp Swords Settle Scores, lol
I enjoy all of your videos, but this is by far my favorite.
The Warrior is Malibu from American Gladiators
Spoony!! You’re literally one dewback in the background from totally pulling a george lucas on this review!
That fan service was too obvious, with the thief… God damn.
“Infiltrate my ass.” “And here you begin to realize the elf is a little weird.” Hmm.. perchance might Spoony be an elf?
Oh heck yes. Hero Quest is the bomb. Used to play that as a kid. Way to go Spoony.
Wow! Hero Quest! My brother got that for Christmas one year, and it was like the best thing ever!
Thank doughnut you reposted this w/ blip. The Revver copy only has your commentary on the right side, and as you may recall I have hearing issues with this side. It was very annoying to have to switch my headphones around so I could hear the Grade A snark in place of the cheesy script.
Thank doughnut you reposted this w/ blip. The Revver copy only has your commentary on the right side, and as you may recall I have hearing issues with this side. Very annoying to flop your around the head headphones on backward so you can hear the snark over the junk audio.
I’ve been following TSE since Bayou Billy on youtube and i think this review is the most hilarious of the lot its perfect and the formula that some of Noahs other great reviews such as terror TRAX, phantasmagoria and The Thing its that the review is about the game or video not you it only supposed to have your take on things something alot of other reviewers have forgotten but Noah (almost) always sticks to the formula
So Sunstones are made of pure ice eh? Makes perfect sense.
Hey you play Dungeons and Dragons to. Hey I was wondering do you D.m?
In fact is all the other way round. Space Crusade was the first game set in that universe, it was the parent of WH40k. Look like th set had some success and GW decided to further develop it.
Oh WOW, you actually have ‘Hero Quest’ still ! My best friend growing up had this and we played the HELL out of it. Just seeing Les Edwards’ AWESOME box art brings back so many fond childhood memories. I would buy this game and every expansion (the five I am aware of that is) in an instant if I found them. Spoony, you should shoot a review on ‘Hero Quest’ that includes you and some friends possibly playing some quests. If anyone is unfamiliar with this gem of a game, check this site out: http://heroquestbaker.altervista.org/indexenglish.htm..it’s well worth it.
Gotta love the Edgar Allen Poe reference. Spoony, you’re awesome.
Nice Cask of Amontillado reference. My favorite Poe story.
Well, first, loving the videos. Becoming a fairly quick fan of your reviews.
Next thing, nobody actually died playing D&D. I’m thinking you’ve probably heard this before, but I’ll explain it.
Basically, a kid once disappeared without a trace, and his parents hired a detective to find out what happened. The detective went to his college, found out he played D&D with some friends in a large pipe system on campus, and wrote a story about a game of D&D gone too far and called it a day.
A few years later after the kids death the detective released the real story which he agreed to keep secret. He had an unrelated drug problem and was trying to run away from his life. He continued to have issues, and eventually he successfully committed suicide. I believe it was his third or fourth attempt. Truth be told there is no real case of kids dying playing D&D, just this one story here that became a bit of a corner stone of the anti-D&D argument. That’s pretty much it.
This review was drop dead HILARIOUS omg it was so funny, it puts the nerds review to utter shame, Wow, His is really bad and unentertaining by comparison. I was laughing almost the whole time with ur review, i didnt laugh once during his.
Your awesome Noah, just tuned in on this site after viewing you at TGWTG site
i’ve seen James’s board review first and like e’m both
must say that this review you did, was to much MST-ish your other reviews that you do are way funnyer
and more uniek, keep up the great word dude
Red Dwarf FTW!
I was wondering if Spoony ever heard back from the the Last Templar if he/she got into D&D?
great.probably on of your best some of your lines had me in complete stitches.
I think the warrior realy was Malibu.
Oh sorry for the double post but I didn’t watch the video to the end before posting, sorry.
Brilliant MSTing, Spoony. Absolutely hilarious. Keep up the great work!
This was great! I loved the MST3K style riffs. You should really make an iRiff for Rifftrax.com
You ever play the Eragon PS2 game? Is it just me or was that the easiest game ever? It’s probably the only game I know where the last level is one of the easiest.
Woot, Malibu! And yes, it’s him.
haha cask of amontillado reference
It was fun, but a little annoying. I haven’t played D&D but I have played WoD and Exalted and other RPGs so when I saw this video I wanted to learn. What can I expect? How does the rules work? How does the narration work? What settings is it? Etc.
But with Spoony talking all the time, and I mean ALL THE TIME it was pretty hard to follow. Sure everything wasn’t important to the rest of you, but it were to me. I want to hear what they say and try and understand how the game works.
Of course the best way to find out is to play it, but I have no idea if the game is something for me to try since a lot of the video was lost in puns and commentaries. Its funny, but it isn’t helping. I think a lot of spoonys jokes could’ve been left out, not all of it thou. This is one, probably the first, video where I would say: less is more. I want to learn so that I can have fun with the game, not laugh at the game and learn nothing. I hope its clear enough.
I swear Malibu is the clone of the Ultimate Warrior and some tooth-whitener…
doesnt baldur’s gate work on a d&d engine?
the comments form Spoony are so great xDDDD
and he plays Hero Quest *_* the first Game before Warhammer hits the market.
Is that queen cosplaying Rita Repulsa in the cheapest set they could find?
i LOVE it when u talk abt D&D
Oh wow, that was cheesier than the Dragonlance Animated Saturday Morning Cartoon Show Wannabe.
Don’t worry, you aren’t missing much :) They don’t give much info on how to play, though this…um…adventure is something of an example story line. Anyways, try looking it up on rapidshare or youtube if you want to hear it un-changed.
If you like RPGs of any sort, or novels and movies that fit your DM (dungeon master’s) campaign, and are willing to try and act out a character, you probably can get into D&D. Since as a beginner you prob’ly won’t be DM, the most important thing you have to do is design a character that you like and you can play as. You will be acting out this character vocally…maybe physically depending on your DM. I don’t recommend an accent though because it really tends to annoy other players. T_T
If you have no clue what to start out as, talk to your DM. Ask him or her what the setting will be, and maybe what classes are needed. For instance, we always needed a cleric in my group, so I would take that role. Once you have a basic setting, think of your favorite character archetypes that are relevant to that setting. Is it going to be a medieval town? What’s in a medieval town? Knights? Apothecaries? Maidens? Friars? Pick something out. Maybe you say “I like the idea of a Robinhood like thief” and that can be your base idea.
Next you consider a starting class. Keep in mind that with D&D you can multi-class if you want, meaning you can take on characteristics of different classes every time you level. If you like the robinhood idea, the best classes would be either thief or ranger to start as, but you would probably want to combine them later on.
You also need to pick a race. You might want to do this by looking at racial characteristics. Some like half-elves have high listening, movement, and other observation-skill points. This makes them a good choice for a thief or ranger, better than say a dwarf. Some DMs won’t limit you to the basic races. D&D has a lot of books after all, and most books have a new class or race in them. You also might get a DM who will work with you to develop a wholly new race, though that takes someone who is really good with the game and numbers.
Once you have the race and class, start fleshing out his or her backstory. The DM might help you with this, esp if he or she wants to tie the character more fully into the story. Consider your surroundings, class, and race.
Then, in sessions, just act how you think your character would. Just… a word of advice from my experience. Watch out if you are playing a snippy, sarcastic character. Sometimes your friends won’t be sure who’s talking…you or your character…and that can be bad….
A game master has to cheat.
fuck u malibu
Easily Spoony’s best video! ^_^
Id like to see spoony and some other guys actually play this game
I wish Spoony could get a group of people to play a game that are willing to be recorded. I know I would love to if I lived in Arizona.
lol the video with the actors is more confusing then helpful
When I saw that you had reviewed this game, I literally squeeled with delight. I had this game as a kid, although it wasn't my introduction to D&D. My friends played, and had included me in a couple of games, and when I saw this existed I had to have it to impress them (I was like 11 at the time, but in retrospect considering my friends that played D&D as my “cool friends” is pretty sad). When I was little this video had to be one of the coolest things I had ever seen. I watched it so many times that to this day, seeing this video, I still had it memorized practically word-for-word.
Thank you, Spoony, for bringing back my childhood and turning something that was once incredibly entertaining into something even more entertaining over a decade and a half later. This video was hilarious! Especially the “DM section” part. Simply genius!
I can't believe I found a copy of this game in my uncle's attic the other day. Sadly, the instructional VHS tape was long missing.
I still have this game in my basement….and I loved playing it back then though at the time I only had one other friend who was into it….so it was sorta lame trying to DM this with one other person and a few times I even tried playing it myself haha
anyways Spoony's riff on the video was spot on and perfect. It was sooo intentionally corny even when I watched it as a kid, I was like man that was definitely a B movie at its finest and a relic.
Terraptus is the ultimate evil!
Only a Sith deals in absolutes!
“SUMMON ALL YOUR LIFE FORCE!”
This may be the funniest video ever, also I played this too as a kid and still have this video.
“Is this the cover to a Iron Maiden album?” :)
I miss this game I used to have it till by jerk sister took all the parts and threw them down the hill at our elementry school. Still don't know what the hell I did to piss her of but she distoryed that game for me. And this isn't some pussy little hill our school at the time on two sides of the playground had this 45 degree drop down a 30 to at least 60 foot hill. The teachers didn't even like to go down that hill. I found one piece which she promtly took from me and threw it down the hill again.

This review >>>>>>>>>>>> The Nerd's review
Good god I miss DnD…
omg that was the longest 30 minutes of my life
I remember seeing ads for this game in comic books when I was a kid, and I was always kind of curious about it. Interesting to finally see what I missed. It's too bad I didn't get it then; I might have gotten into D&D much sooner than I did. I only started playing it a few years ago, and even then I didn't know anybody who currently played, so I had to start my own game. Let me tell you, DMing when you've never even played before is one hell of a learning curve. Still, lots of fun; it's always a blast finding ways to push my players to the brink of death without outright annihilating them. And hearing them reminisce about how fighting their way through an army of giants makes it all worthwhile.
That was a hysterically cheesy video, though. Great job as always, Spoony!
haha the fabio guy is from the terror trax game
I got this game from my dad about 3 years ago, maan, we played the hell out of it. Was nearly as good as Monopoly at some point :P But it gathered dust as we played Chess for a while back then…Gonna resell it at FCLA.. How much is this worth these days? I'm sure your review put it up :P
1:01 is hilarious lol
a labyrinth reference? love it haha.
well, it's taken years for me to find this, but i think you've successfully made me considerably geekier. i want to play this so bad.
That actually looks pretty fun, though I doubt I could last through an entire game without turning it into something completely silly. While I might not be a D&D nerd, I am enough of an anime nerd to know that the first cosplay photo you showed was actually Hikaru from Angelic Layer. Not important at all, but I had to say it.
In what D&D PC games i've played, Thiefs sneaking around is useless, all you get is double or triple damage for one attack and with their strength the like 7 damage becomes 21 when enemies have hundreds of hit points.
I wanna cast magic missle!
Using magic missile again, because it was so useful the first time…
I personally have been playing D&D for a while now, only versions 3.5 and 4.0. sadly enough i got kicked out of my group for accusing the DM of being an idiot,useing deus es machina all the time, and not coming up with original ideas or following one story or thought. Nobody else i know has another group which i can join around town which sucks but ill find some group hopefully in the next town over.
like you spoony this is how i got into D&D to i have been playing for like 14 years
for anyone that is trying to get into D&D any cant really aford it or dont want to spend $50 on the stuff get it on ebay for much better prices
Is the floating Zardoz head the same actor who played Lion-O in Thundercats?
OH MY FUCKING GOD! I have Hero Quest (or used to, it's so old it just may have disintegrated all by itself and I have no idea where it is) and I used to play it with my friends! In our games I was the referee and I always had to kinda cheat and help my friends since they sucked at the game. It felt so bizarre when you suddenly go “Hero Quest!” and lift it to the screen…I never thought I'd see that game anywhere.
Is the floating Zardoz head announcing the game the same actor who voiced Lion-O in Thundercats?
This is the best MST3K episode not called MST3K!
Don't you just love ruining – supposed to be – serious moments in movie, shitting on bad acting. xD
any reason all of your websites ads are all pornographic?
any reason all the comercials on your website are borderline pornographic? i don't care but it is kind of weird.
NOW FEAR MY AWTIC BWAST!The reference to Noon from Shining Force III just killed me.
Ha! nice red dwarf ref there. God I miss that show :'(
“You will tank and draw aggro.”
I almost fell out of my chair. Freaking awesome Spoony.
OMG i played the same games too. Spoony, how did we not hang out together back in the day?
they shoulda just killed the jester like you said…
D&D rule #284: Always kill the jester immediately.
There is a loony in EVERY party. This one is spoony.
Dude! That guy decked out like Hercules with the ’80s rockstar hair is the agent from the Terror T.R.A.X. vampire game- AND the guy who played Motaro in Mortal Kombat Annihilation! And- dear God, he was on American Gladiators?! What a horrible career this man has had. I wonder if he’s still out there somewhere, or if he jumped off a bridge when they stopped making FMVs.
Well, why the hell do you think Spoony kept calling him “Malibu”?
“Is it okay to watch until I get the hang of it?” Same thing I asked my first time having sex.
now i know what to say my first time too!!! Thanks Nigel!!! ^^
I remember owning this game, I only ever played it once.
in fact I owned Hero Quest as well
Whoa! haha, that was very funny Spoony!, I have a question, when “the guy” asked you, if there was someone at the window, and you said something about sweat dripping from you *ahem!, you made a reference to Duane and Brando? haha.
This video is hilarious and I love your riffing on it, but I noticed you never actually got around to saying whether the actual game is any fun or not. Then again, since you start by recommending it as a way to get into D&D I suppose it is.
that was amazing…. you could even say it was…. “sweet”
Malibu failed his saving throw.
Wow I’ve never seen a video on here that’s had this hard of a time playing. It buffers for about 30-40seconds for every 3 seconds of the video. And this seems to be the only video that does this.
Now that I’ve finished the video I have to say you were rapid firing those puns excellent job.
Great review! love the music references. You had 2 fan shots from the thief! i agree more entertaining than both eragon and in the name of the king.
while the warrior looks like malibu, he also looks like the one hit wonder singer from critters!
“you will tank and draw aggro” i use that line in RE5
holy shit I have hero quest!!! It’s the best board game ever :DDD
You and James, like the same things and are evenly awesome.
Yeah you and the nerd are frikin funny and awsome!!
I learn D&D from my friend…. I’m not allowed to be a necromancer….
This is the scariest and coolest thing at once I have ever seen! Great job Spoony!
Malibu is just a dumbass. XD
Dude, “Fabio” I think is the same guy from that horrible TRAX vampire game!!!! NOOOO WORLDS COLLIDE!
Spoony makes fun of actors and things happening in the video and that is hilarious, but how could he resist doing it when he played AD&D himself?
wrong spoony, people dont kill people, CHUCK NORRIS kills people
A very good introduction to D&D, Spoony. Also, I think this is the calmest and nicest I’ve ever seen you.
I’ve seen those black and white comics around, with the girl talking about D&D. Holy shit, I had no idea those were serious! I thought it was a gag, like parodying Jack Thompson’s over the top video game beliefs.
Holy crap, I was stunned when you suddenly held up Hero Quest! That’s the first board RPG I ever got into, and I have some really great memories from it. Way cool, Spoony, I respect you even more now!
Feeling Brave Tonight? How Brave? Brave enough to convince your friends to play, brave enough to show them the movie, brave enough to wander through the deep mires of confusing hyper reality, and chance being the next dissapointed…with Dragon Strike!
Dear god I love this movie and this game. Its the only board game that is specificly designed for one player, should you so wish. Like, people have no idea how much it influenced me. Im 24, I got this board game when I was 7 years old, the week it came out. By this point, id already aquired all the monstrous compendiums from AD&D sets (Yes, I still have them, and the binders, and this board game, and the boxed sets from most AD&D settings.)
Because of this, and my extreme enjoyment of magic, I will forever picture the mage in Dragon Strike when I think of them. Which is not a good thing: “I dont much care for your choice in headgear, wizard.” “Do you not know of a wizards transformation? I was turned into a coyote, to learn the ways of the wild. no animal came to harm.” …I mean come on! Thats like one of the strangest things someone could pull out of thin air to explain something else that they pulled out of thin are…except you can tell it was all scripted!
Thats the beauty of dragon strike though. No matter how many times you watch it, its always fantastic. “Alright, Your sun stone’s done! Now what do you want me to do with it?!” “Let darkness rise. And in the darkness, let evil grow.”
I literally have this movie memorised line for line.
King: “Guards! Eject this…Elf.”
Queen: “I think all the guards are dead.”
the king was all sorts of kickass. He pulls a level which pulls him, throne and all, into a secret passage in the wall, to return when the battle is over. Astute observers may notice that the queen does not have such a trick.
God I love this movie. I mean, is there anything better? Is there? I cant think of anything.
As soon as I heard turn I was wishing he was going to say “I will turn this banquet hall right the fuck around!”
My mum didn’t want me to go to D & D games because she thought we were actually trying to summon demons. Yah. I should have just told her it was acting club. It might have made wearing a huge cloak and carrying around pbc pipe and foam swords around, not as weird? Although I have no will to play it anymore as my rp group was a bunch of asshats that totally ruined it for me. WoD is still fun though.
Also the christian comic book artist that demonized D & D is Jack T. Chick I believe, which apparently came out just as Tijuana Bibles (under the counter comic porn) stopped appearing and were the same tiny size. They are fairly outrageous and kind of comical in some cases.
Yep. That’d be Chick’s handy work. Though calling him a “christian” or a “comic book artist” is stretching both terms quite bit (the first count because his beliefs are heretical and have pretty much isolated him even from the fundamentalist sects. The second count because…well, his art sucks. The proportions and angles are just weird on some of them. )
Of course, while he was not the only person to unfairly (and let’s face it, stupidly) demonize D&D (in fact, there was an Atheistic parents group who lobbied against D&D claiming “corruption of the youth” and that it was “a religious indoctrination system”, among other panicky blowhards from other ideological/demographic backgrounds) I will give him credit for being the most famous person to do it in comic form.
You want to talk bonkers? There’s your boy. The Pastor of my church once debated a member of Chick’s sect (and a quite the splintered and wacky group they are. Thankfully they only number less than a hundred.) and they actually brought up D&D. My Pastor, being a gamer himself countered their accusations, and the guy flipped out and left the debate. So yeah, bonkers. Chick’s anti-Catholic conspiracy theory tracts are hilarious too.
By the by don’t let your bad experience with one group get you sour on D&D over all. Give it another chance.
Your pastor plays D&D? Sign me up! Does he play a cleric? Or does he play a chaotic-neutral druid, just to be ironic?
Depends on his mood at the time and the edition….but he mostly plays Rangers.
It’s just a model..
I always laugh at the Amantillado reference.
I was exposed to D&D at a young age when at a sleep over in 5th grade. my best friends parents let us stay up and watch them play.I wanted to play ever since but kids aren’t that smart and my mom didn’t think much of it. The first time I actually got to play was freshmen year in high school. I learned with 3.0 But now play a home version that’s kinda a mix of ad&d, second edition and some of our oun mechanics. I would like to see one of your campaigns Spoony, sounds like fun.
Ugh! That elf was licking his prairie chicken feather!
“Feeling brave tonight? Hmm?”
Evil floating head ahoy!
“Somehow the castle is actually retreating from them!”
Well yeah…wouldn’t you be retreating in any way you possibly could from these people too?
This has gotta be one of Spoony’s best. I was laughing my ass off at the D&D jokes. It’s good to be a geek!
LMAO this is like mst3k xD
Who would actually ask to play the Warrior?
Seriously, the Thief is the only likeable one. It’s like she knows she’s in a stupid short movie.
Well, the guy jumped at the chance to play him, then asked what he could do. Seriously? Is it not blindingly obvious? And why would he volunteer to play a class so enthusiastically, having no idea what it does? When told that (surprise surprise) a warrior fights in close combat, he asks if can do magic. I’d say he’s definitely the right guy to play warrior.
At 4:18, the gamepiece of the guy with the bow and arrow was stolen by Heroscape.
I have Hero Quest! It’s Awesome! =D
Huh, and here I thought all dwarves were jolly and sang disney songs while digging gems the whole night through.
According to this, they’re rude, ungrateful, cowardly butt-heads.
You are an evil gob monster. And I am going to kick you in the BALLS! IN THE BALLS SPOONY! THE BALLS!
no offense but did you utter the words, What do they assume every wizard wears a stupid hat? Exhibits A-D; Rincewind, Elminster, Gandalf, Schmendrik. :P I love wizards to death but fashion conscious they are not. Hell rincewind even combined the fashion sense of a wizard with the fashion sense of the outback, by dangling corks from his wizard hat.
Gandalf the Gray had a stereotypical stupid wizard hat :)
Rincewind also had the word “wizard” sewn onto his hat. With two Z’s, if I’m not mistaken.
Feeling brave tonight? (In the background a faint spoony voice is heard) “Nooo”
i think after watching this i might actually know how to play d&d now and laughed my butt off at the same time
best one yet
best one yet]
The amazing thing is that there was a planned sequel for this game. Someone found a trailer for it, called “Wild Space.” Even features the same characters including Malibu the Barbarian! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UHGz5r-b1do
Had to rewatch this today after finding the comic book based off it in my closet.. I’d totally forgotten there was a comic for it…
SEND IT TO LINKARA! :D
I’m not sure if it qualifies as bad enough though! Though the condition of it sure is bad..
Because of you, Spoony, and this MST in particular, I’ve ordered my own copy of Dragon Strike! Still waiting for it to come in the mail, but I’m sure I’ll enjoy it when it gets here in the mail.
I dunno how I have missed this, this ENTIRE time, cuz I’ve listened to this review at least a dozen times, but today I realized something. Remember the part when the jester showed up to give the wand to the wizard? How Spoony said Oh no? I just realized his dislike of that mother fucking jester came from Ultima! I feel so fail for not putting 2 and 2 together years ago. Thats fucking Chuckles!
*removes glasses*…mother of God…
Nice Poe reference. I love that story!
I grew up on Hero Quest too. My brother was the ref and I did the characters. We had to stop after a while because I was pretty little and half the pieces got broken or lost because I was too young to know better. I got another copy at a yard sale in great condition a couple of years ago, and I’ve been using it as story fodder ever since.
I also got a copy of Dragon Strike at the same yard sale, but the movie and half the pieces were missing so I didn’t keep it long.
“Magic is for wimps” who wants to be the wizard after that?
The woman was the worse thief ever! And what’s with the warrior’s hair?
Time Bandit reference for the win.
Woah. I know DnD.
…your awesome moves?
This was terribly awesome. Yeah, it’s pretty bad but also endearing beyond measure.
Noah, thanks for making me discover Journey (band) through this vid.
Just cuz you called the goldy locks guy “American Gladiators Malibu” :) … google and youtube did the rest.
I have always wanted to know how was Dragon Strike.
I only knew about it from ads in comic books at the time, but I never had the opportunity to own it or even try it. Besides, I didn’t understand English and my parents didn’t have the money for that anyway.
The only similar board game I had (and I still have it) was the Star Trek: The Next Generation Interactive VCR Board Game – A Klingon Challenge (holy god damn long name). It was at the time my older brother was a Star Trek Fan, so they ended up cosplaying when playing the game (well, it was only once, but still).
Anyway, thanks for the video! :D
I own Dragon Strike. I think it is still in my basement. The game itself is actually pretty awesome and I always wished there were like more adventures for it like expansions or something, but that short vid was terrible. Even as a kid I thought it was terrible. It definitely had its own style, but it just wasn’t very good.
This is one of my fav reviews from Spoony though because this is something I could have easily done just not as well or as funny probably ha
interesting but boring vhs tape to be honest also i have something else that might will learn people dnd aspects in the form of pc games such as liked you named buldersgate but there is also bulders gate 2 icewind dale 1 & 2 and never winter nichts witch all of them are all available at gog.com (without serials) i know i now sound like a promoter but that is false wy i tell you people where to get them is because these older games seriously rock and it will teach you also dnd gaming in a very interesting way and it doesn’t need the mind for the grafix (since a lot of people don’t really have good imagination :P
ow and thx spoony (i always forget your real name since ive just recently found your video’s :P) for sparking a real interest in (non pc game) DND in me :P
Google translate, ladies and gentlemen :D
I still give the guy an A for effort lol. At least he took the time ;P
Wow, that “Fabio” guy looked like freakin’ Malibu/Agent Graves/Agent Snake!
Wait a minute, he doesn’t just look like him, he IS Malibu!
Woooow. That guy’s in everything.
So freaking bad..
The only enjoyment of this video was seeing Malibu getting drop kicked, lol..
Honestly, this video just makes you wonder who the hell could play D&D in any incarnation, lol..
I’ll admit: I love this vid. It was the first thing I ever watched game-related and I was about 12-13 at the time. I still have a soft spot for it.
I know what you mean dude. Now it looks cheesy, but your nostalgia filter makes it look kind of like an epic show. I love that kind of sensation.
Trust me, DnD is NOTHING like this any more.
Yeah, it’s a lot better(not including 4th edition thou).
Spoony, you’re riffing is so awesomely stellar at times it’s on par if not better than MST3K/rifftrax quality riffing. And seeing you in livestreams I know a lot of it is off the top of your head too which is epic. You should really do more riffing in my opinion, or Let’s Plays, because your off the cuff sense of humor has me rolling on the floor all throughout. Also, pretty sure I’m putting that ESPN game at the end in the “Wtf sports/game shoes” category with all the crazy ass japanese ones. Seriously, the purpose is to swing on a rope and knock the opponent off? I’m curious to know if there’s anything else to that game, I can’t imagine it being terribly rivoting other than laughing at how absurd it is! XD
Oh you, Spoony… Now you’ve done it! Now you’ve got me interested in MST3K-style crap! You did a damn good job on this! :D

Its funny how the magician looks like a druid.
That’s what I was thinking– seeing how he’s wearing a wolf pelt and keeps talking about nature.
Did anyone else continue singing when he made that Labyrinth reference? You know, with the song Magic Dance? …..”What kind of magic spell to use”? ……Just me? ……..ok then.
Lol I got the amantillado reference
Oh my God I remember this movie and game… holy shit nostaglic backlash.
And not the good kind. I need a shower…
So awesome! I remember this from when it came out and had not seen the VHS since. Priceless!
You know being a dungeon master myself and well… being known for playing DnD I always encountered the stereotype you more or less summed up : “a bunch of nerds dressed up as elves jerking on their 5d6 + dex modifier sword” And this really frustrates me because the problem with Dungeon and Dragons it seems.. is that it’s called dungeon and dragons.. nothing sounds more geek but the good thing about dungeon and dragons is that it’s called dungeons and dragons: nothing sounds more epic and nothing describes best what the game is really aiming for. But truly and what really but really made the whole game interesting (at least for me) was the hanging with your friends, drinking some beer and just listening to the players making their own adventure by simply putting them in a bar or a whorehouse.. The number of hours my players spent brawling in bars, insulting dwarves and making sexual innuendos about shifters were nothing like the stereotypes upon DnD players… those moments really summed up the whole experience: “You are in an epic world, filled with epic things and you do whatever the hell you want, follow the quests if you want and trust me those quests are made with passion, or stick at the bar to get friends with the owners’ daughter and end up in the streets with a bottle of rhum exploded in your face.” DnD is simply unbelievable, it’s complex, rich and imaginative… I always say it’s like Skyrim but you can rape if you want. And that’s a way to put it simply and make it sound funny and to really prove that you do whatever the hell you want. And of course we also spend endless nights on Orcish raids and those moments were and are still precious an intense, the players are stressed, they over think everything and they work in team because they would get literally crushed by those berserkers if they weren’t going to do so. I always enjoy having new players and to tell them : “Okay well the party consists in a halfling druid that shapeshifts into a bear, a dwarven female rogue that rolled a 40 on 2 20sided dices for her breast so she once killed a man by suffocation with those, a palladin that always gets into very very VERY strong arguments with the rest of the group cos you know.. paladins are god knights, seekers of purity, a semi-devil (thiefling) homosexual history teacher and a wizard elf that always have to argue over the nobility of his race because all the party is just bashing on him.. yeah I know tons of adventures that weren’t scripted happened with those guys… would you like to join?” And immediately (I spot those people) they look at me with a “wow” face and they are like : “Can I play a necromancer with drinking issues?” And every time I answer: “You can play whatever you want.”
“It’s like Skyrim but you can rape if you want.”
And in one sentence, the entire argument falls apart. Not only is that the creepiest fucking thing you could possibly use as an argument to play D&D, it’s also not really helping the entire situation when considering people already think of D&D players as weirdos.
Not to mention Skyrim sucks balls.
I do not have the game, but I have the VHS tape. I found it at a flea market. So hilarious… and MALIBU! Hahahaha! That was great.
What the hell Spoony? Why are you so freaking amazing? WHY MUST WE SHARE INTERESTS?!?!?!
It’s Chuckles, the fucking jester.
“Don’t you people knock?”, is so much more funny now after watching Counter Monkey Videos.
The narrator’s voice…..I can totally hear him saying “Jill, here is a lockpick. It might be handy if you, the master of unlocking, take it with you.”
I love this video. I still have dragon strike too. But the more I think about it the more I realize: The movie that plays is the best recreation of a standard quest, in all its greatness and silliness and all that. This is basically every adventure in every D&D campaign ever, minus spelljammer.
Teraptus’ castle is Laputa?
Me: Mike Adamle?! I go to kill him with my sword!
DM: Not only do you not kill him, but he becomes the General Manager of WWE Raw.
honestly I’ve always thought about getting into some form of DnD… this kinda killed that
Don’t worry, the real deal is not nearly as silly XD

Awh man, the memories. This was the first video I ever watched on your website. Been watching Spoony for four years now and I plan to stay around for another four!
Dang, I loved this game when I was a kid. Sadly, I could even quote the video.
The video narator is awful.. But Spoony’s commentary makes it epic ^_^
5 years old, and it still cracks me up XD
Am I the only one who thinks that the Dwarf sounds like Lewis Black?
Where can i get a banana hat like the one the queen is wearing?
Beware. The tree may “sap” your strength.
I’ll bet the tree is weak against fire damage. I don’t know for sure, I’m just going out on a “limb”.
Good thing the elf shot that skeleton in the back and head. Because, you know, that’s where all the vital skeleton organs are.
You want the tooth? You can’t handle the tooth!
Huh, does anyone find it weird how this kingdom’s coat of arms is a crossed out crown o_O ?
