Chess Life magazine is now in full color

7/31/2012 – After six years existing as a two-color magazine, the print edition of the venerable Chess Life, the flagship magazine of the US Chess Federation, is finally going into full color. This may seem long overdue to some, but contrary to the World Wide Web, where any Tom, Dick or Harry can put up a color publication, print magazines have a different financial burden altogether. Here is a sneak preview.

Chess Life magazine is now in full color


The cover of the August 2012 edition of Chess Life

After six years existing as a two-color magazine, the print edition of the venerable Chess Life, the flagship magazine of the US Chess Federation, is finally going into full color. This may seem long overdue to some, but contrary to the World Wide Web, where any Tom, Dick or Harry can put up a color publication, print magazines have a different financial burden altogether.

A warm congratulations to the famous publication on not only surviving the embattled world of print but thriving well enough to make themselves that much more attractive.


Press Release

Effective with the August 2012 issue of Chess Life, available now for USCF Members via our online viewer or pdf download at uschess.org, the USCF's flagship magazine is in full color after six years as a two-color publication. The magazine will be arriving in our Premium Members' mailboxes soon.


A sample of the new look in color

A few items have been added to take advantage of our new look:" Faces Across the Board" (p. 9) by Al Lawrence will celebrate class-level players who have a chess accomplishment of note or interest. "Knight's Tour" (p. 46) is a tournament travel section that will highlight one or more of the events in each issues' Tournament Life section. "My Best Move" (p. 72) will look at a chess, business, or celebrity personality each month and ask them to describe either their literal or figurative best move.

The August edition includes full reports on the US Championship and the World Championship


The color reports give the magazine a reinvigorated look

We hope you enjoy Chess Life's refreshed design and the same great chess coverage you've come to expect.
