Originally posted by greenpawn34When you say 7.95 and 3.95 are you talking about a single issue? Or a subscription.
Currently CHESS are doing deals for time subs.
I am not on their pay roll I get nothing for this.
If I see good deal for us chess bums then I pass it on.
Write to them asking for a sample copy.
Heaven knows there are plenty of people trying to take money out ...[text shortened]... s and DVD's.
Ask them for a free sample copy. (get June 2010) it really is a very good mag.
Originally posted by nimzo5If you go to the NIC web site, you'll find that they put out 8 issues per year. There's an introductory subscription for 5 issues for 47 USD to the United States. Also, there's a 1-year subscription to the USA for 94 USD (8 issues). Two or three year subscriptions are only very slightly cheaper per issue.
GM annotations that are more verbal than informator
Photo's etc of tournaments (kinda cool- reminds you that not all chess is played in some dingy basement of a dilapitated hotel.)
the cover.. massive head shots of some player.. hard to explain to non chess players why you are toting around a magazine with a 14 year old boy's pict ...[text shortened]... p enough for a CC player's use.
I think a sub is quarterly and less than 8 usd an issue.
Originally posted by chesstoraI'm confused about Kingpin magazine. Is it still be in business? It seems that the current issue (40) is somewhat out of date. How long has Kingpin been publishing? Is the publication schedule a matter of "We'll put out an issue when we're good and ready." ?
Fellow posters; I've subcribed to New In Chess (NIC) for the past four years. I think it is an excellent source of chess information.
I'm wondering if other posters subcribe to NIC and is it the best chess magazine out there. What other chess magazines are there to subcribe to?
Thanks in advance for your opinions.

Originally posted by toeternitoeIf you really enjoyed the magazines, I think you are already more successful.
I took CHESS' reduction offer and subscribed for a year.This morning my first issue,August,arrived.They included a July back issue without me asking for it.Very nice!
I spent all day with the July issue and really enjoyed myself.Something I never had with NiC.
So I'm now in the position to compare and my conclusion is:
NiC is good.
CHESS is bett ...[text shortened]... 2 chess magazines.I better get real good real fast to account for this exuberance
