sharper than a bone-saw!
A great English chess favourite
very, very entertaining . . . some of the back issues of Kingpin were instant classics
Kingpin is a very, very nice magazine
the magazine I most enjoy . . . Gary Lane’s agony column is a must for all chess addicts
Utterly irreverent . . . genuine wit . . . good instruction for club players
Scurrilous, funny, sometimes serious, sometimes libellous
I actually paid good money for No.9
It seems to me that you haven’t quite achieved the manic, off-the-wall style of humour that Informator manages so well, but you run them a pretty good second
very, very entertaining
