[edit] Transcript

{The scene opens up with a shot of the board game. Strong Bad has his hand over the Trogdor piece, before lifting it up and putting it behind the table. The shot pans out to fully show Strong Bad.}

STRONG BAD: What the?

[edit] Remarks

  • In the toon the expansion deck is spelled "Majicks", while on the store it is spelled "Magicks".
  • This toon is animated in a noticeably higher frame rate at certain points. Some examples include Homestar shaking his Stray Action Point card, the "Expando Deck" splash screen appearing, and the "appear" effect of the cards showing up on the live action wooden table.
  • When the cards on the wooden table appear, the lighting becomes a bit darker.
  • The new cards that are seen and readable in the toon are as follows:
    • Action Cards
      • The Trogorb - 4 AP - Before Trogdor's actions, flip over the top movement card to forsee the Peasant and Knight movements.
      • Wraparound Burnination - 5 AP - Once during Trogdor's actions, if he is on an edge tile, he may burninate one corresponding wraparound tile for free.
      • Flaming Haldo - 4 AP - If Trogdor ends his turn on the Archer, a flaming arrow is shot in the direction Trogdor last moved, burninating all countryside tiles from the Archer to the edge of the board.
      • Sneak 'Em Up Stan - 4 AP - Before Trogdor's actions, he may teleport to any tile occupied by a Knight without taking damage.
      • Peasant Intern - 5 AP - For this turn only, every Peasant Trogdor visits becomes a Junior Burninator. When Junior Burninators move, they burninate the tile they start on and the tile they move onto, even if they're supposed to Repair. Peasants stay on the board.
    • Emergency Cards
      • Stray Action Point - Add 1 AP to Trogdor's actions.
      • Troghammer Rejection - Ignore a Troghammer card. Discard it and keep playing.
      • Instant Recharge - Recharge any one Item of Trogdor... expect for Disk of Healing. Sorry.
      • Movement Card Snob - If you don't like the movement card that was JUST drawn, discard it and draw the next one instead. You gotta stick with that one though!
      • Third String Keeper - Choose any one Keeper NOT currently in the game (like, still in the box). For this turn, use both their power and the current player's power.
      • Tile Swappins - Swap any 2 empty map tiles.
      • Singular Consummate V - Move Trogdor one tile diagonally now.
    • Spell of Un-Voidening
      • Perform these tasks (in any order) on a single turn to move one Peasant from the Void to the Trog-Meter.
      • Card 1:
        • Burninate a tile Trogdor is not on
        • Visit a tile directly south of any Knight
        • End your turn on a burninated forest tile
      • Card 2:
        • Move 3 tiles consecutively in the same direction
        • Visit the Archer
        • Hide in the Mountain

[edit] Goofs

  • In both the beginning scene with Strong Bad and the part where Strong Sad shows up to cast the "Spell of Un-Voidening", a peasant can be seen on the same tile as Trogdor. In the scene where the Emergency Card is demonstrated as the Knight advances towards Trogdor, the peasant on the aforementioned tile is not present.
