Master the Elements in 'Avatar: The Last Airbender Fire Nation Rising', Coming Soon from The Op

Master the Elements in Avatar: The Last Airbender Fire Nation Rising – Coming Soon from The Op

For more than a hundred years, a war has been waging among four nations deeply rooted in the elements of Earth, Air, Fire, and Water. Initiated by an attack by the disruptive Fire Nation, the conflicts will continue unless one destined Avatar, a master of all the elements, can engage in the battle with a working plan to unite these once-peaceful Nations.

The story unfolds in the popular Nickelodeon animated series Avatar: The Last Airbender, but unlike the episodic journeys we’ve followed so far, soon we will be able to determine how the battle ends ourselves! Avatar: The Last Airbender Fire Nation Rising is the newest title to join The Op’s Rising series of cooperative card and dice games, and it’s coming this Summer!

“It’s not magic” that’s needed to end The Hundred Year War, but the ability to work together to stop Lord Ozai and The Fire Nation’s takeover. In Fire Nation Rising, defeating the enemy takes places as two phases: Recruit new Heroes and fight Villains in preparation for The Day of Black Sun, then claim victory in three Final Battles after the eclipse to restore balance to the world!

You and your friends will fight as up to five Teams led by starting Heroes Aang, Katara, Sokka, Toph, and Zuko, each with their own dice pools and special abilities. Standing defiantly in the center of a Map board is a custom sculpted figure of Fire Nation leader Lord Ozai, who will deal damage with every turn based on Fire Nation cards that dictate his direction and Ruin spaces.

Recruit new Heroes such as animal friends Momo and Appa, or former Avatars Roku and Kyoshi to strengthen your progress on the eclipse track, which marks the arrival of The Day of Black Sun. The Balance side poses objectives that players must complete to advance their preparation for the celestial event, which will ultimately impact their success with the Final Battles. The Ruin side negates Balance as the Fire Nation attacks, and Villains including Azula, Ty Lee, or Long Feng can further harm the Heroes unless they’re taken out! If 10 or more Heroes are defeated, or if any one player loses all their Heroes, Fire Nation wins.

Avatar: The Last Airbender Fire Nation Rising is the sixth installment of The Op’s richly themed and immersive battles and will include solo play rules for the single player with a master plan! Made for 1-5 players ages 10 and up, the game will be available for $49.99 from The Op this Summer, just in time to beat the real heat!

Sign up for The Op’s emails at to be notified upon its release, and while you’re here, check out the company's accessories for Avatar The Last Airbender fans such as Avatar: The Last Airbender Card Sleeves, Dice Set, and RUBIK’S® Cube! To experience the suspense of The Op’s Rising cooperative card and dice games in the setting of other worlds, the company suggests Harry Potter™ Death Eaters™ Rising, The Batman Who Laughs Rising, and SpongeBob SquarePants: Plankton Rising among other fandoms for everyone in the family! Let them know which side you’re rooting for by tagging @theopgames and #theopgames in your photos for a chance to be featured on their Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram!

I had a dream
I got everything I wanted
Not what you'd think
And if I'm being honest
It might've been a nightmare
To anyone who might care
Thought I could fly (fly)
So I stepped off the Golden, hmm
Nobody cried
Nobody even noticed
I saw them standing right there
Kinda thought they might care
I had a dream
I got everything I wanted
But when I wake up, I see
You with me
And you say
"As long as I'm here, no one can hurt you"
Don't wanna lie here, but you can learn to
If I could change the way that you see yourself
You wouldn't wonder why here
They don't deserve you
I tried to scream
But my head was underwater
They called me weak
Like I'm not just somebody's daughter
Could've been a nightmare
But it felt like they were right there
And it feels like yesterday was a year ago
But I don't wanna let anybody know
'Cause everybody wants something from me now
And I don't wanna let 'em down
I had a dream
I got everything I wanted
But when I wake up, I see
You with me
And you say
As long as I'm here, no one can hurt you
Don't wanna lie here, but you can learn to
If I could change the way that you see yourself
You wouldn't wonder why here
They don't deserve you
If I knew it all then, would I do it again?
Would I do it again?
If they knew what they said would go straight to my head
What would they say instead?
If I knew it all then, would I do it again?
Would I do it again?
If they knew what they said would go straight to my head
What would they say instead?

Channel 5 Axes Aussie Soap 'Neighbours' [Update: Australian Soap Cancelled]

Australian soap opera Neighbours has been a fixture in UK TV schedules for decades

Update (3/3) - Neighbours has been axed for good after Fremantle Media failed to find a new home for the Australian soap. Neighbours will end this summer after four decades on our screens.

Neighbours has been axed by its UK broadcaster Channel 5 - prompting moves to find a new production partner for the soap.

The beloved Australian soap opera, which follows the lives of residents on the fictional Ramsay Street, began airing in 1985 and has been pivotal in the careers of many A-list stars.

The likes of Kylie Minogue, Jason Donovan, Guy Pearce, Liam Hemsworth, and Margot Robbie all had big career starts on Ramsay Street.

Neighbours - which is the longest-running drama series on Australian television - is still reported to bring in 1.5 million viewers in the UK each day it airs. It had begun airing in the UK in 1986 on BBC One before moving to Channel 5 in 2008. The soap also aired briefly on Nickelodeon UK & Ireland in 2016.

Despite the soap’s continued popularity with UK viewers, UK broadcaster and soap production partner Channel 5 will no longer be airing or contributing to the soap from the summer onwards.

The news comes following a report that the soap was facing being axed by the broadcaster, which is understood to have been the primary financial backer for Neighbours.

A Channel 5 spokesperson confirmed to “Neighbours will no longer air on Channel 5 beyond this summer. 

“It’s been a much-loved part of our schedule for more than a decade, and we’d like to thank the cast, Fremantle and all of the production team for their fantastic work on this iconic series. 

“We’d also of course like to thank the fans for their loyal support of Neighbours across the years. We recognise that there will be disappointment about this decision, however our current focus is on increasing our investment in original UK drama, which has strong appeal for our viewers.”

Despite the soap being axed by Channel 5, its Australian broadcaster Network 10 is optimistic that production company Fremantle will find a new production partner to help the show continue.

A Network 10 spokesperson said in a statement: “As outlined in the email to Neighbours cast and crew, it is our intention to continue our association with Neighbours if another broadcast partner comes forward. 

“Network 10 has an ongoing commitment to the show, the cast and crew and is hopeful that Fremantle will find a new production partner. 

“We will provide further updates as they become available.”

Network 10 and Channel 5 are both owned by ViacomCBS. has reached out to production company Fremantle for further comment on this story.

Fans of the soap have already begun using #SaveNeighbours on social media in a bid to encourage support for the soap's survival.

Neighbours usually airs on Channel 5 on weekdays at 1.45pm. A repeat of the episode also airs later in the day at 5.30pm.
