In the second half of 20th century, the game of chess swept around the world. "The Royal Game had become a game of the people." Chess Informant appeared, collecting some of the most precious games created by chess players. From millions of games played at some of the most important tournaments worldwide, 101,031 games have been published in the first 100 volumes of Chess Informant (1966-2007).

From all the games ever published in Chess Informants, the Editorial Board and a jury of leading grandmasters chose the ten best games from each volume, and among them - a Golden Game, that volumes best for each volume. These 1,000 games (100 of them are "Golden") have been compiled in a book that represents the greatest achievements in chess.

This book is a testament to the creative efforts of thousands of chessplayers. Every game is annotated and every Golden Game is illustrated by a photograph or caricature of the winner.
