attractive zany humour
unquestionably the funniest chess magazine in the world
If more people read this magazine then it would have a higher circulation
Aside from being funny, Kingpin is often pretty controversial too, with many an allegation or insinuation strewn amongst its pages
James Plaskett, New Statesman
some of the most varied, sometimes most interesting, and certainly least inhibited chess writing available today
A great English chess favourite
British Chess Magazine
Unpredictable, honest, the funniest
Hugh Myers, The Myers Openings Bulletin
Utterly irreverent . . . genuine wit . . . good instruction for club players
William Hartston, The Independent
[its] satirical nature and penchant for sharp games makes it compulsive reading for the average club player
In the chess satire stakes @KingpinEd are masters of the art form … a veritable feast: irony, sarcasm, hyperbole
