Aside from being funny, Kingpin is often pretty controversial too, with many an allegation or insinuation strewn amongst its pages
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
attractive zany humour
a new kind of whiteness I never thought possible with my old Chess Magazine – and without boiling
[its] satirical nature and penchant for sharp games makes it compulsive reading for the average club player
one of my favorite magazines
uses impiety and parody to hew down the conventions of publishing, even including mock testimonials
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
some of the most varied, sometimes most interesting, and certainly least inhibited chess writing available today
