Kingpin is a very, very nice magazine
one of the very few chess publications that call a chess spade a chess spade
combines an amusing style with solid instruction
unquestionably the funniest chess magazine in the world
very, very entertaining
A great English chess favourite
Both serious and funny, I recommend it to anyone who wants to smile as he reads
some of the most varied, sometimes most interesting, and certainly least inhibited chess writing available today
uses impiety and parody to hew down the conventions of publishing, even including mock testimonials
