Britain’s most entertaining chess magazine
Publication of the British magazine Kingpin is always an eagerly-awaited event
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
very, very entertaining . . . some of the back issues of Kingpin were instant classics
Scurrilous, funny, sometimes serious, sometimes libellous
Aside from being funny, Kingpin is often pretty controversial too, with many an allegation or insinuation strewn amongst its pages
some of the most varied, sometimes most interesting, and certainly least inhibited chess writing available today
If more people read this magazine then it would have a higher circulation
Both serious and funny, I recommend it to anyone who wants to smile as he reads
Unpredictable, honest, the funniest
