1[[quoteright:350:]]²²[[ Steve Jackson Games]] is a gaming company based in Austin, Texas. It was founded in 1980 by Steve Jackson ([[OneSteveLimit The American one, not the British]] co-founder of Creator/GamesWorkshop). While it began as a TabletopRPG company, it has branched out to produce CardGames, BoardGames, miniatures games, UsefulNotes/{{dice}} games and VideoGames in conjunction with Creator/OriginSystems. Their current FlagshipFranchise is the ''TabletopGame/{{Munchkin}}'' CardGames.²²In 1990, Steve Jackson Games was raided by the U.S. Secret Service, which believed that their in-process book ''GURPS Cyberpunk'' was a manual for computer crime. The Secret Service seized computers and other materials from the Steve Jackson Games offices. Steve Jackson sued and won damages, but still had to reconstitute the book from playtest notes and other materials, as they never got all of the seized computers back. The 'Steve Jackson Affair' was one of the cases that led to the foundation of the Electronic Frontier Foundation.²²Steve Jackson Games has published a lot of games over the years, including:²²!!Tabletop [=RPG=]s²* ''TabletopGame/TheFantasyTrip''[[note]]Originally published by Metagaming Concepts.
