a new kind of whiteness I never thought possible with my old Chess Magazine – and without boiling
Utterly irreverent . . . genuine wit . . . good instruction for club players
Kingpin is a very, very nice magazine
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
the magazine I most enjoy . . . Gary Lane’s agony column is a must for all chess addicts
Kingpin is often pretty controversial too, with many an allegation or insinuation strewn amongst its pages.
Kingpin is not a chess magazine in the normal sense of the word
attractive zany humour
very, very entertaining
