Modiphius Entertainment has just released information for the expansion to their Thunderbirds board game, Thunderbirds: Tracy Island.

The expansion introduces new elements in the fight between the villainous The Hood and the heroic Tracy family and includes 56 new disaster cards, four F.A.B. cards, four event cards, three character cards, four pod vehicle tokens, three new models, three character pegs, 14 pod vehicle models, and two gameboard overlays.

The original game, designed by Pandemic veteran Matt Leacock, was released last year, initially funded via Kickstarter, to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the TV show. The expansion is set for an August 2016 release.
