"I ordered the premier issue and eagerly awaited its arrival. I was expecting quite a lot from it, but I still was completely blown away by how good it really was."

Your non-chess playing friends would pick it up and say:

“Wow! This Is A Chess Magazine!?”

It’s like getting a book of instruction, news, and close-ups every second month — one you would be proud to casually lay out on your coffee table. Treat yourself to quality.

"Wanting to support American Chess, I took the leap of faith and subscribed. And I am so glad I did! This is the finest chess magazine I have ever held in my hands and I am 70 years old!"

Chess Magazine As It Was Meant To Be

Take a look for yourself in these pages: Joel Benjamin’s “Musings of an American Grandmaster” takes chess commentary to a GM level! Get almost personal coaching from Ivanchuk as he takes you through a game. Fishbein’s endgame columns have already received wide notice. Our Olympiad coverage went 57 pages (!!) in bringing you a whole staff of writers to do justice to the American championship team.

Grandmasters At The Forefront

Our authors are world-class players – champions – but, above all, grandmasters and experts who are excited to share their knowledge within the chess community. No ghost-writers or “special” contributors, only fully committed authors, proud of their hard work. The job of our team of experienced international editors is merely to create a supportive environment where the work of our chess heroes can shine in full splendor.

Testimonials

"Cover to cover, my favorite chess publication. It has everything I want to see and the physical quality of each page is outstanding; great pictures that just jump of the page, print that doesn't come off on your fingers, and pages that don't stick together."

Is American Chess Magazine For Me?
