Please, do people really believe what they read in Kingpin? I am amazed! It’s like taking a satirical show and mistaking it for the news
sharper than a bone-saw!
I actually paid good money for No.9
Kingpin is not a chess magazine in the normal sense of the word
one of my favorite magazines
uses impiety and parody to hew down the conventions of publishing, even including mock testimonials
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
the ‘Private Eye’ of the chess world
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
In Kingpin, nothing is sacred, and this makes Kingpin such a hit
