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.

It is with great sadness that we report the passing of our solutions editor, Danny Dunn. Danny was a tireless worker doing one of the most demanding editorial jobs. He will be missed. Our prayers go to his wife, Nancy, and their children. Danny died on September 14th. He was 71 years old.
