Its rather coarse satirical manner may not appeal to everyone – just the majority of us who enjoy sharp games and low humour
The joy of chess is nowhere celebrated to such climactic excesses as in Kingpin
Britain’s most entertaining chess magazine
[its] satirical nature and penchant for sharp games makes it compulsive reading for the average club player
irreverent and entertaining
Scurrilous, funny, sometimes serious, sometimes libellous
In the chess satire stakes @KingpinEd are masters of the art form … a veritable feast: irony, sarcasm, hyperbole
In Kingpin, nothing is sacred, and this makes Kingpin such a hit
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
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
