a new kind of whiteness I never thought possible with my old Chess Magazine – and without boiling
Kingpin is not a chess magazine in the normal sense of the word
the ‘Private Eye’ of the chess world
Utterly irreverent . . . genuine wit . . . good instruction for club players
Kingpin is often pretty controversial too, with many an allegation or insinuation strewn amongst its pages.
In the chess satire stakes @KingpinEd are masters of the art form … a veritable feast: irony, sarcasm, hyperbole
Aside from being funny, Kingpin is often pretty controversial too, with many an allegation or insinuation strewn amongst its pages
Scurrilous, funny, sometimes serious, sometimes libellous
Unpredictable, honest, the funniest
uses impiety and parody to hew down the conventions of publishing, even including mock testimonials
