Material from these scarce early issues will be posted on the website. Articles include ‘The $400 Club’ by Yasser Seirawan, ‘How to Win a Lost Game with a Pizza’ and ‘Great Swindles of Our Time’.
an entertaining, irreverent chess magazine that takes you over to the lighter side with verve and panache
Its rather coarse satirical manner may not appeal to everyone – just the majority of us who enjoy sharp games and low humour
very, very entertaining . . . some of the back issues of Kingpin were instant classics
those who are unfamiliar with Kingpin are missing out on a real delight: there are many good chess magazines around, but in my opinion Kingpin is the best out there
Kingpin is not a chess magazine in the normal sense of the word
very, very entertaining
a must-read for everyone who doesn’t take chess too seriously; it’s especially a must-read for everyone who does take chess seriously
Aside from being funny, Kingpin is often pretty controversial too, with many an allegation or insinuation strewn amongst its pages
Both serious and funny, I recommend it to anyone who wants to smile as he reads
A great English chess favourite
