The Danish Chess Problem Society (DCPS) was founded on January 14, 1932 by a group of chess problem enthusiasts in Copenhagen. The membership grew fairly rapidly, new members being recruited from among the readers of the various newspaper chess columns and the chess problem column in Skakbladet (published by the Danish Chess Federation). This column was for a period edited by the chairman of DCPS, Kaare Vissing Andersen, but from 2005 Hans Larsen has taken over.
Our chairman also functions as librarian, lending material to members from the library comprising some 800 chess problem items. DCPS conducts monthly meetings in Copenhagen, normally the second Thursday of the month. Membership amounts to 200 DKK per year for Scandinavian members, 28 Euro per year for other European members and 35 USD for members outside Europe.
Through a period of 32 years the club magazine was published under the name of Thema Danicum with Leif Schmidt as editor. He stepped down after 2007 due to health problems. It was decided to let the name go with him. In 2008 a new quarterly magazine, Problemskak, emerged with Bjørn Enemark as editor. This magazine now enters its tenth year. Each issue contains around 50 chess diagrams, more than half of them originals, and articles for both beginners and experts. It contains direct problems, self mates, help mates and fairy problems. A solving tourney runs for one year at the time. The original help mates and fairies take part in two-year competitions. The judges have been:
