About Us


50 Moves is Australia’s Premier Chess Magazine. Established in 2014 to provide an outlet where our leading stars and chess players of all ages could share their unique knowledge and experiences with others. We believe in a platform to educate, entertain and inspire the next generation of chess players. In doing so, helping to popularise the game we all love.

Our magazine is available for Print, Digital Web (PDF+PGN) and Digital App formats. Full of high-quality material about all aspects of chess, suitable for players of all levels. We have various articles on opening, middlegame and endgame strategies, interviews with local and international players, chess psychology, history and news about Australian chess from a team of passionate and dedicated Australian writers and International Guests.

We will share everything we have learnt from many years of playing/coaching and take Australian chess to a whole new level. For us, chess is our greatest passion and we look forward to sharing it with you.

Happy Learning.
