irreverent and entertaining
an entertaining, irreverent chess magazine that takes you over to the lighter side with verve and panache
one of the very few chess publications that call a chess spade a chess spade
one of my favorite magazines
combines an amusing style with solid instruction
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
uses impiety and parody to hew down the conventions of publishing, even including mock testimonials
Both serious and funny, I recommend it to anyone who wants to smile as he reads
the gutter press of chess
