New In Chess magazine: frequently asked questions


  1. Is there a difference between the print and the digital magazine? Yes and no. There is no difference in the content. The digital edition has all the stories of the print magazine. But the digital edition has a very nice bonus: you can replay all the games on a built-in interactive gameviewer. You won’t need you chessboard anymore to enjoy all the annotations by top grandmasters as Magnus Carlsen, Fabiano Caruana, Wesley So and Anish Giri.

My subscription to New In Chess magazine

  1. I am a print subscriber. How do I access the digital edition? We have three subscription offers: print, digital or print + digital. If you have chosen print, you won’t get access to the digital edition. If you would like to add the digital edition to your print subscription, please send us an email at: nic@newinchess.com
  2. Why isn’t digital included in the price of the print magazine? Our aim is to charge a fair price for all our products. We have invested heavily in the digital edition – and we have to spend extra production time to publish this digital edition. Therefore the price for print + digital is higher than for either print or digital. Some magazines have only one (all inclusive) subscription offer, other magazines (such as The Economist) have the same business model as we have. 
  3. How do I sign in in the app? Once you have your username and password, you will have to find the sign-in menu at your device.

For most tablets and phones you will find the sign-in menu by trying all available buttons and menus. Your best chance is the top right corner of the screen or the middle of the bottom of your screen. The Windows app has a menu at the top right of your screen.
  4. I am a subscriber and I have signed in, but the issues still have a price tag. How can I solve this? You can try to sign out and sign in again. That will usually solve the problem.
