the ‘Private Eye’ of the chess world
a new kind of whiteness I never thought possible with my old Chess Magazine – and without boiling
Kingpin is a very, very nice magazine
uses impiety and parody to hew down the conventions of publishing, even including mock testimonials
In Kingpin, nothing is sacred, and this makes Kingpin such a hit
attractive zany humour
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

Scurrilous, funny, sometimes serious, sometimes libellous
