Coming this summer from Anderson Entertainment is Thunderbirds: Danger Zone – a co-operative card game for 2–6 players that can be completed in 30 to 50 minutes. Players assume the role of International Rescue operatives taking on daring rescue missions based on the original television series episodes.
To bring this new game series to life, Anderson Entertainment teamed up with award-winning games designer, Andrew Harman.
Players take turns leading as Jeff Tracy and decide how to move the mission forward – using resources gathered by the other players, preparing pods and equipment for missions, or deploying other characters as mission support. And all of this is against a countdown.
There are a variety of levels of difficulty across the episodes, from beginner missions right up to full expert level scenarios like Terror in New York City and The Impostors. These first installments all draw inspiration from the classic TV series, but future episodes could incorporate elements from the TV21 comics, audio adventures, and beyond.
The first release features seven episodes with the plan of an expansion pack later in the year.
The game is currently in production and will be available from July 2022 via The Official Gerry Anderson Store online, selected games retailers, and Amazon priced at £24.99.
