Best of Fenix includes some of the best gaming material from the Swedish gaming magazine Fenix – translated to English. In Best of Fenix you will find inspiring material written directly for Fenix’ readers by renown international game designers such as Kenneth Hite and Pete Nash, but also some of the best from the Swedish arena. To top it off, we got our own comic strip Bernard the Barbarian, created by Åke Rosenius and at least one standalone game in every issue.
