    Thunderbirds-board-game

    When the world is in danger only the Thunderbirds can save the day, and they are the target of today's spotlight.

    The Thunderbirds board game was released to coincide with the franchises 50th anniversary, and sees the players taking the role of member of international rescue trying to thwart the dastardly plots of the Hood, as well as prevent natural disasters.

    The Game

    Thunderbirds is a cooperative game for up to four players, with each players choosing a character from the British cult classic and attempting to save the world. Each turn players will travel the globe and even into outer space to preventing disasters and stop the Hood's schemes, these will require you to manoeuvre the best characters and Thunderbirds in order to do the job.

    Once prevented, the disaster will give you a reward, this bring a token that you can use to grant you a bonus during the game or save in order stop the Hood. As using these tokens to prevent all three of his schemes is the only way to win.

    If you fail to prevent a scheme or you running out of time to prevent a disaster the game is lost, as international rescue cannot afford to fail.

    Not much I can say that I haven't already said, but if you're a super Board game fan and you want that game delivering to you ASAP so you can get it to the table as soon as it arrives, then you won't find anywhere better than Zatu. Left numerous reviews for them now, after having bought from them several times and every one I have found their service to be top notch and given them 5 STARS. I hope this never changes. Keep up the good work, Zatu.
