The joy of chess is nowhere celebrated to such climactic excesses as in Kingpin
William Hartston, The Independent
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
John Emms, The Survival Guide to Competitive Chess
sharper than a bone-saw!
Prince Mohammad bin Salman
[its] satirical nature and penchant for sharp games makes it compulsive reading for the average club player
It seems to me that you haven’t quite achieved the manic, off-the-wall style of humour that Informator manages so well, but you run them a pretty good second
A great English chess favourite
British Chess Magazine
In the chess satire stakes @KingpinEd are masters of the art form … a veritable feast: irony, sarcasm, hyperbole
If more people read this magazine then it would have a higher circulation
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
some of the most varied, sometimes most interesting, and certainly least inhibited chess writing available today
