If more people read this magazine then it would have a higher circulation
Kingpin is often pretty controversial too, with many an allegation or insinuation strewn amongst its pages.
the magazine I most enjoy . . . Gary Lane’s agony column is a must for all chess addicts
Both serious and funny, I recommend it to anyone who wants to smile as he reads
Britain’s most entertaining chess magazine
Kingpin is a very, very nice magazine
irreverent and entertaining
very, very entertaining
Its rather coarse satirical manner may not appeal to everyone – just the majority of us who enjoy sharp games and low humour
attractive zany humour
