‘Session of the FIDE presidential council. FIDE president proposes temporarily suspending himself from duty until the next council.’
Both serious and funny, I recommend it to anyone who wants to smile as he reads
I actually paid good money for No.9
combines an amusing style with solid instruction
sharper than a bone-saw!
the magazine I most enjoy . . . Gary Lane’s agony column is a must for all chess addicts
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
the ‘Private Eye’ of the chess world
unquestionably the funniest chess magazine in the world
