2007 ENnies Voting Open

ennies2007vote.gifThough most of you don’t care at all about gaming awards, you can still make a difference in the RPG gaming world by casting your vote for the 2007 ENnie Awards. The voting is open to anyone with an internet connection, and showcases the best of the RPG industry of the year.

Of particular note is that Treasure Tables, the invaluable GMing resource, has been nominated for Best Fan Site. Even if you aren’t familiar with anything in the other categories, please vote for TT, as the hard work that Martin has put in to the essential blog about GMing deserves to be rewarded.

Voting is only open for a short time, and you don’t need to vote for every category, so head there now!

  1. Thanks for the kind words about TT! It’s a huge honor to be nominated, and TT’s fellow nominees are very tough competition.

    I enjoyed your post on gaming awards. When I took the TT community’s pulse on that topic in 2005 (Which RPG Awards are Relevant to You as a GM?), the folks who replied mostly didn’t pay much attention to RPG awards.

    With a good year for the Origins Awards under our belts (as opposed to last year’s shambles), the ENnies gaining prominence and the Diana Jones Award continuing to surprise, I’m surprised at the results of your poll. What are gaming awards doing wrong?

  2. Martin: Sorry, you got caught in the spam filter temporarily. There are still plenty of complaints about the awards and how they’re run, but there seem to be more and more people coming up with their own awards (Ogre’s Choice from Ogrecave.com and Golden Geek’s from Boardgamegeek.com come to mind). I don’t know if it’s fatigue from there not being a single prominent gaming award, or if there has been too many blunders in the past for people to care. I wish I knew, since I was the only person who voted that I use awards to guide my purchases!

  3. No worries — spam filtering is a necessary evil. 😉

    I’ve definitely learned about products from this year’s ENnies that pique my interest, although that interested hasn’t turned into any actual purchases yet.

    On some level, it would be nice if there was an Oscars of gaming — one award “show” that meant the most, and covered the most stuff. But even the Oscars have meaningful competition. I’m not sure where I fall on that issue.
