2021 ENNIE Awards Nominees and Judges’ Spotlight Winners Announced: The header says it all, the list of this year’s batch of Nominees and Spotlight Winners has been released. There are a number of creations we’ve looked at in the mix: Cortex Prime, Vaesen – Nordic Horror Roleplaying, and Alice is Missing are all nominated for more than one category, and SLA Industries 2nd Edition got a Judge’s Spotlight!

Discussion of the Week

An Apology: A needed piece of meta-discourse. A Redditor concedes that he snarked about the game Ten Candles because designer Stephen Dewey was “a dick” to him…over a decade ago. The resulting post makes you feel good for knowing it happened, and reminds us all to take a step back from all the heated discussions we can so easily be sucked into, online and elsewhere. Also, you should probably check out Ten Candles.
