Welcome to the StrateGems website - the official magazine of the Good Companions (US Chess Problem Society).

StrateGems has been publishing high-quality original chess problems from composers across the globe for over 15 years. All originals compete in a yearly informal tournament, and there are 9 different sections covering everything from Directmates to Fairies. Solvers enjoy the wide variety of problems and composers appreciate our timely publication of originals and awards.

We also offer a library of books on problems.
