Set in the year 2065, Thunderbirds follows the exploits of International Rescue, a secret organization committed to saving human life, secretly founded and funded by the millionaire Tracy family, with the motto: ‘Never give in, at any cost!’ International Rescue has a host of technologically advanced land-, sea-, air-, and space-rescue vehicles and equipment ready to launch at a moment’s notice.

Racing to the rescue from a secret island base beneath the luxurious home of the Tracy family somewhere in the South Pacific Ocean, International Rescue defies government spies and criminals who want the secrets of their incredible machines for their own. To combat this threat, Lady Penelope, the Thunderbirds’ aristocratic English secret agent, and her chauffeur Parker lead a network of agents to uncover those behind the disasters caused by deliberate sabotage.

A criminal mastermind known as “The Hood”, operating from a temple deep in the Malaysian jungle and in possession of strange powers, often engineers events to allow him to spy on the Thunderbird machines with the goal of selling their secrets to the highest bidder.

The iconic Thunderbirds are designed by the Tracy family’s close friend “Brains” and are assigned to each of the five Tracy brothers:

- Thunderbird 1, piloted by Scott Tracy – a hypersonic rocket plane used for fast response and rescue-zone reconnaissance, and as a mobile control base.
- Thunderbird 2, piloted by Virgil Tracy – a supersonic VTOL carrier which transports their major rescue equipment in detachable pods.
- Thunderbird 3, piloted by Alan Tracy – a single-stage, vertically launched spacecraft
- Thunderbird 4, piloted by Gordon Tracy – a utility submersible for underwater rescue, launched from Thunderbird 2
- Thunderbird 5, manned by John Tracy – a space station in geo-stationary orbit that monitors calls for help from across Earth.

Finally, Lady Penelope has the iconic FAB 1, driven by Parker – a pink, amphibious car.

Thunderbirds is a cult 1960s British science-fiction television series, created by Gerry and Sylvia Anderson. It was produced using a combination of marionette puppetry and scale-model special effects, which was dubbed “Supermarionation”. Two series, totaling thirty-two 50-minute episodes, were produced, along with two films using the same techniques.

Players will work together using Thunderbirds characters and vehicles to complete rescue missions and save the day.

    5/5
    Dans Thunderbirds, vous allez être amenés à bien optimiser tous vos déplacements afin de ne laisser jamais personne bloqué et de combattre efficacement toutes les catastrophes.  Et entre l’urgence de combattre toutes les catastrophes dans le meilleur ordre possible, vous allez devoir penser à déjouer les plans machiavéliques de Mister Hood afin de l’emporter avec un brin de chance nécessaire.  Les amateurs des Thunderbirds originaux vont être aux anges mais les autres ne seront pas en reste pour autant en découvrant un univers nouveau, cohérent et faisant rêver aux jouets de leur enfance (on en a un peu marre des Cthulhus, Magiciens, Orcs, Zombies, aliens et autres bestioles des donjons ;-)).  C’est sûr, dans Thunderbirds, vous allez vous prendre pour l’agent 007 qui sauvera le monde contre Mr No et qui, en passant, friquotera un peu avec Pénélope

    Fan absolu de la série qui a bercé mon enfance, j'ai été rempli de joie quand j'ai vu qu'il existait un jeu dédié à cet univers. Une fois la boîte ouverte, on retombe vite dans l'ambiance de la série et on se prend au jeu. Une fois les règles lues, on s'y plonge et on n'en ressort plus. Le mécanisme de jeu est très fluide, la coopération est totale et il faudra anticiper tous les mouvements à venir pour ne se faire piéger par le plateau. Optimisation des ressources, coopération, stratégie, anticipation et chance aux dés seront les conditions à remplir pour gagner la partie. Que vous soyez coutumier ou non de l'univers, ce (très beau) jeu vous offrira de nombreux moments agréables.

    Très bien équilibré. 2 parties en facile et normal. On a hâte d'essayer la difficulté supérieure. Très bon matos. Le jeu est assez tendu il faut vraiment bien se coordonner. Beaucoup de discussion. Il faut constamment anticiper les futurs sauvetage en essayant de résoudre ceux en cours sans oublier de déjouer les plans de The Hood. Les erreurs de choix et les catastrophes inattendues permettent d'apporter un peu de stress et de revoir sa stratégie. Très dynamique. Les jetons bonus et les cartes FAB sont bien pensés.
