The Woman From The ENnies: She Say Yes!
After a afternoon of frequent refreshes and growing impatience, I can now announce the news I've been waiting two days to announce.

Game Night, by Magnum Opus Press, has been nominated for a Gen Con EN World RPG Award (a.k.a. an "ENnie") in the category of "Best Regalia", which is awarded for the best product used to complement role playing game play.

http://www.ennieawards.com/08/2008noms-4.html

The other nominees are:
  • The 100 Best Hobby Games, by Green Ronin Publishing

  • The Art of Eve, by CCP/White Wolf

  • Confessions of a Part-Time Sorceress: A Girls Guide to Dungeons & Dragons, by Wizards of the Coast

  • Dungeons & Dragons Inn-Fighting, by Wizards of the Coast

So, Wizards of the Coast, White Wolf, and Green Ronin. No competition there then.

Still, it could have been worse. Last year's winner, the incredibly popular webzine Order of the Stick, isn't on the list, which I think might just have increased my chances of winning from "absolutely none, no really, absolutely none" to merely "absolutely none".

That is absolutely fantastic. Really, you're in amongst the giants there and, imo, you should have been for the Origin Awards as well, oh, and the HUGOS (yes, I'm quite serious, but you know how I feel about the book). It is that good.

Anyway, best of luck. The fact that you're there is amazing, we'll just have to see how it works out. :) (And 03:00 or whatever is *not* too late for a text message when you win!)

3:30 text it is then.

If I win. :)

It said in the email that they'd contact us about that in the next few weeks.

does that mean an early copy will be priceless, as later editions of your book will be labeled "Nominated for a ENnie Award", and should things go to plan, the follow-up edition will be "Winner of 2008 ENnie Award."?

Yes.

As an ENnies judge from this year, I wanted to congratulate you on writing a seriously funny book. You did an absolutely great job, and I think you've got a solid chance (especially if folks actually, um, you know, *read* it). Best of luck at the awards!
