Stand by for action! Modiphius Entertainment has shared promotional cover art and announced the release date of its THUNDERBIRDS CO-OPERATIVE BOARDGAME.

As we reported last year, PANDEMIC creator Matt Leacock has teamed up with ITV Studios Global Entertainment and Modiphius Entertainment to produce the THUNDERBIRDS CO-OPERATIVE BOARDGAME. The game’s publishers have announced that it will be on sale September 2015, following a Kickstarter campaign. The creators are now asking fans for their input.

Modiphus will be going live with the Thunderbirds Kickstarter in February. This has become standard practice in the industry and allows producers to improve the quality of components.  Planned pieces include models of Thunderbirds 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5, plus character figures. The Kickstarter hopes to add Tracy Island, the villainous Hood, Lady Penelope, Parker, Tin Tin, Brains and others. Fans can help by filling in a special survey here.

Matt Leacock is best known for PANDEMIC, a best-selling co-operative boardgame in which players team up to prevent virulent diseases destroying the world, and this new game has excited enthusiasts. The Thunderbirds game promises a similarly addictive experience, and will also come with a large number of detailed Thunderbirds models as well as art from artist Graham Bleathman, known for his work on the show.

Chris Birch, head of Modiphus Entertainment told Starburst, This will be a fantastic co-operative journey in the Thunderbirds universe with your favourite death defying missions and a set of high quality pre-assembled models of the Thunderbirds to save the day!”
