Chaosium's horror-investigation game Call of Cthulhu has received an outstanding ten nominations in this year's ENnie Awards, including Product of the Year.

The ENnies are the annual fan-based celebration of excellence in tabletop roleplaying gaming. A panel of judges select titles for nomination, which are then voted on the gaming public. Voting commenced on July 11 and runs through to July 21.

The Call of Cthulhu titles nominated include the core 7th edition rules and various supplements. They are:

In mid 2015, Chaosium founder Greg Stafford and Call of Cthulhu creator Sandy Petersen returned after many years to reassume control of the company, which had run into well-documented difficulties attempting to deliver on Kickstarters for Horror on the Orient Express and Call of Cthulhu 7th Edition. Under their new management team, the outstanding Kickstarter issues were resolved over the next year, and retail releases of Call of Cthulhu 7th Edition began by early Fall 2016. A line of new Call of Cthulhu products has since followed, including ENnie nominees Doors to DarknessPulp Cthulhu and Call of Cthulhu: The Coloring Book.  

"Like the Great Old One himself, Chaosium is rising once again from the depths", said Michael O'Brien, Chaosium vice president. "These ENnie nominations and the support of Call of Cthulhu fans everywhere are helping the company get back to where it once was, at the forefront of the hobby games industry".
