De ENnies 2019

logo ENnies

Tijdens de afgelopen Gen Con zijn voor de negentiende keer op rij de ENnies uitgereikt. Gen Con is de grootste Amerikaanse bordspellenbeurs, alles wat je aan tafel kunt spelen is er aanwezig en natuurlijk ook Rollenspellen.

De ENies Awards zijn prijzen voor alles wat met rollenspel te maken heeft, omdat het een Angelsaksische aangelegenheid is zul je niet snel iets van het oog des Meesters zien. In maar liefst meer dan twintig categorieën is er iets te winnen. Hieronder zie je een uitgebreide lijst. De eerste heeft Goud gewonnen, de tweede Zilver, de rest zijn de andere genomineerde.

Wat opvalt is dat de wereld van het rollenspel groot en gevarieerd is, deze lijst is ook een startplek om eens naar andere varianten te kijken en inspiratie op te doen.

Nog een opmerking over de uitslag van dit jaar: Vorig jaar oktober is Greg Stafford ( *1948- †2018) overleden, de ENies Awards 2019 kun je zien als een eerbetoon aan deze game designer, vandaar dat in bijna elke categorie uitgever Choasium (of een partner) er vandoor is gegaan met Goud of Zilver.
