SGJ Podcast #215 – A Hodge Podge of a Show

One of the Biggest Surprises of the Year So Far!

Welcome back to the Space Game Junkie Podcast my friends! We’re back from hiatus, and this week, Jim, Hunter, Spaz and I talk the games we’ve been playing, some news, and discuss what a surprise and delight 2017 has been so far in terms if space games. Over two dozen space games have been fully released (i.e. hit 1.0, not early access) this year, and we’re on track to beat 2016 in terms of releases. Not only have there been a lot of games, but many of them have just come out of nowhere and shocked us with how great they are. Star Fleet Armada, Icarus, Nevalia and more! It’s been such a great year so far. We’ve also been playing a lot of other awesome games (as you can see below, we talked about a LOT, and I likely missed some). It’s a pretty loose show, but it was a lot of fun to record, so we hope you enjoy it.

Next week on the show, we’ll be having the other half of the team that brought us the original Star Fleet games, Mark Baldwin. We’ll not only talk about those, but his work on the Empire games as well! Yay! As always, if you have a suggestion, comment or request, drop it below, email us at or hit us up on the forums. Thanks for listening!
