The Thunderbirds Co-Operative Board Game from Modiphius, designed by the genius gaming mind of Matt Leacock has got itself a promotional cover and there’s a survey to help Modiphius plan their Kickstarter too!
Some more on the game from Matt Leacock…
““I’ve had a great time immersing myself in the world of Thunderbirds, learning all about the Tracy family, Lady Penelope, and all their wonderful gear. This game will give players the chance to see how they would perform in the role of the Tracys. Will they be able to anticipate global disasters and complete impossible rescue missions? This game will test each player’s nerve, logistical sense, and mettle,” said Matt Leacock. “It’ll tell you if you could be a Tracy!””
…and from Modiphius.
““Thunderbirds has always been the geek dad brand of choice as people introduce models of Thunderbird 2 or the original TV show to their kids,” said Chris Birch, Publishing Director of Modiphius.“From collecting the models and avidly watching the shows as a kid, it has been a dream of mine to create an awesome game with Thunderbirds. With Matt Leacock on board, I know we’ll be able to create the ideal co-operative gaming experience for whole families to enjoy the Tracys’ world. F-A-B!””
Leacock has designed such games as Pandemic, Forbidden Island and Forbidden Desert so there’s quite the pedigree behind this game. It’s also going to probably be a REAl challenge is the designers past is anything to go by!
There is also a survey as mentioned above which allows you to vote on things like stretch goals, add-ons and more. Of course the game is also touted to carry some awesome miniatures of the Thunderbirds themselves AND the characters.
Esdevium Games will be presenting the Thunderbirds Co-operative game on Stand E109 at Toy Fair on 20th-22nd January in London.
Will you be waiting for this one?
