The Chess Public Deserves The Best

There is no reason why a chess magazine couldn’t be equally good as any mainstream golf or tennis magazine. We have been receiving rave reviews around the world for our bi-monthly that has 100 pages (or 156 with combined issues) of chess each issue the way chess fans want to read it. Our issues won numerous awards from the Chess Journalists of America.


We concentrate on presenting educational articles that will have value not only today but years from now.

Celebrating The Resurgence Of US Chess

This is the chess magazine, America, in its chess renaissance, deserves. And we will consider it a great compliment if readers find it worthy to share the American Chess Magazine with their friends, exhibiting the same pride they feel in being members of the American — and indeed worldwide — chess community!

"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 other 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.


Steve C.

"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?

What Our Readers Say

Starting from Issue #10 we went from quarterly to a bi-monthly publishing schedule, without raise of the subscription price! This enables us to be more topical when reporting on events as well as to focus on high energy and maximum impact articles. At the end of the day, it all depends on whether you as a chess aficionado want a truly high quality publication worthy of American chess to succeed.  Whatever we made, we owe to our dear readers and subscribers.

I love everything about it. The articles, the strategic lessons, the tournament insights are all thrilling. Can't wait for the next issue!

Manuel | Oklahoma

Excellent production; color photographs, tournament news/updates, game annotations/analysis, endgames, studies, etc.
Very in depth....

Paul | New York

Have already shared the magazine at our local chess club. All were impressed. Arrived in stellar condition.

Melvin | Illinois

Of all the chess magazines that I have seen in the past, ACM is by far the best. The magazine is really ABOUT chess.

David | Massachusetts

ACM does a great job of covering American chess and Worldwide chess through an American lens.


In general, I do not recommend things. However, I am impressed by the magazine, and I wish it continued success.

Benjamin | California

I like the magazine so far. Everything and so informative for my taste. So far so good. Keep up the good work.

Leo | New Hampshire

Content, layout design, unique chess perspective, shipping quality, PGN availability.
