I know the posts here have been few and far between recently but, to be quite honest, I posted a link to the 2010 ENnies voting and when I saw it was time to vote for the 2011 ENnies now, I felt like I should post a new link. So I settled down and tried to remember my password to log in and post again.
Several months ago I started a poll about how often people look at bluealien.org and the results are approximately in line with what I expected (though I'm surprised that there are 4 votes for every hour and suspect it's the same user voting on four machines).
The 2010 ENnies, a popular award line given to tabletop roleplaying games and wargames by ENworld, are open for voting by the general public until midnight on 25 July.
So if you can get in under the wire and you want to vote, do so:
The ENnies Ballot.
The classic boxing game returns to the ring on May 18 for the Nintendo Wii after a 15 year break.
