Standby for action! Modiphius Entertainment have announced that they will be producing a THUNDERBIRDS themed co-operative boardgame, designed by none other than Matt Leacock.

THUNDERBIRDS is a cult 1960s British science-fiction television series, created by Gerry and Sylvia Anderson, about an organisation called International Rescue. The group uses a family of heroic pilots in special vehicles to fix global problems. Matt Leacock is best known for his smash hit co-operative boardgame PANDEMIC, in which players work together to prevent the spread of deadly diseases across the world. Bringing the two together seems like a perfect match.

The game is still currently in the design stages, but we have been told that Modiphus will be “producing some awesome miniature Thunderbird machines as part of the package” and that the game will keep its iconic and world famous THUNDERBIRDS look and feel.

The company’s Publishing Director Chris Birch told STARBURST Magazine, “With Matt Leacock at the helm we're going to be seeing a great cross-over game of perilous rescue where you get to use the awesome Thunderbird machines. Whether you know the classic THUNDERBIRDS TV show or not, it's promising action and rising tension across the globe. I've seen the prototype and I'm really excited, Matt's had some genius ideas to translate the thrills of the show to the tabletop. ”
