Steve Jackson Games is a game company that creates and publishes role-playing, board, and card games. It was founded in 1980 by Steve Jackson.

Their best-known games include:

On March 1, 1990, because of a misunderstanding about a game under development called GURPS Cyberpunk, SJG's offices in Austin, Texas were raided by the U.S. Secret Service. The raid was part of Operation Sundevil, a nationwide investigation of computer crime. More than three years later, a federal court awarded damages and attorneys' fees of US$51,040 to SJ Games, ruling that the raid had been careless, illegal, and completely unjustified. Cyberpunk popularizer Bruce Sterling discussed the affair in his book The Hacker Crackdown: Law and Disorder on the Electronic Frontier. The case also motivated the formation of the Electronic Frontier Foundation. See GURPS Cyberpunk for more information on the raid and the ensuing case.
