SGJ Podcast #272 – 2018 Year in Review/2019 Looking Ahead

The Best of 2018!

Hey friends, welcome to this week’s podcast! This week, Jim, Spaz and I close out 2018 by looking back at this busy year and talk about what surprised us, what depressed us and a lot more. We talked about a LOT of games, so it’s a pretty long episode, but we covered a lot, and had a lot of fun, so I hope you have as much fun listening to it as we did making it.

We’re back on January 8th, 2019 with Star Dynasties, so until then, may you have a joyous holiday season and a very happy new year.

As always, if you have any questions or comments, drop them below, email us at or hit us up on the forums. Thanks so much for listening, and enjoy the show!
