This roleplaying game created by two Maltese sisters is nominated for 3 international awards

Flabbergasted! up for Best Art Interior, Best Game and Product of the Year at the Ennie awards

Flabbergasted! a comedic 1920s tabletop roleplaying game created by sisters Fleur and Chelsea Sciortino has been nominated for 3 Ennie Awards – Best Art Interior, Best Game and Product of the Year.

In the next few weeks, fans will vote for their favourite game in 22 different categories in the prestigious and internationally recognised Ennie Awards.

Fleur and Chelsea have a passion for tabletop roleplaying games. Together they write, produce, and design lighthearted roleplaying content that’s comedic, character-driven, and unique in setting. They are also dedicated to creating inclusive and diverse games.

They successfully kickstarted Flabbergasted!, their first tabletop roleplaying game in October 2021, and there are now over 4,000 copies in distribution in four different languages.

The Ennie Awards celebrate the best role-playing game products and their creators. They are hosted at the international gaming convention, Gen Con which takes place in Indianapolis, the US and sees over 50,000 attendees. These awards are an annual fan-based celebration of excellence in tabletop roleplaying gaming which gives game designers, writers, and artists the recognition they deserve.

The selection process comprises two rounds. In the first round, publishers submit their products for nomination where five democratically elected judges judge the entries. In the second round, the nominated products are then voted for by the public.

The Ennies are unique among gaming awards where judges follow a strict set of ethical guidelines which help ensure that the Ennies isn’t just a popularity contest by narrowing down hundreds of submissions to only the very best. Only once that shortlist is created, is voting on the final winners open to all. Being nominated for these awards is already an outstanding achievement.

Flabbergasted! joins the ranks alongside other major tabletop roleplaying games that have been nominated for these awards, with recognizable names like Dungeons and Dragons, Tales from the Loop, Avatar Legends, and The One Ring. The winners of each category will be announced on August 4. We wish the two sisters best of luck!
