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 hail@spacegamejunkie.com or hit us up on the forums. Thanks so much for listening, and enjoy the show!
