Thunderbirds_logoModiphius Entertainment has just announced a licensing deal with ITV Studios Global Entertainment to develop a cooperative board game based on the 60′ TV show Thunderbirds.

For those unfamiliar, Thunderbirds was a sci-fi show set in the year 2065. Founded by the Tracy family, International Rescue saves people using highly advanced air, land, sea, and space vehicles. Modiphius is working with Matt Leacock on the game. Matt is well known in the industry for creating games such as Pandemic, Forbidden Island, and Forbidden Desert. Between the 5 Tracy family members and Lady Penelope, I’m guessing we’ll be seeing a 6 player game.
