Unpredictable, honest, the funniest
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
some of the most varied, sometimes most interesting, and certainly least inhibited chess writing available today
the ‘Private Eye’ of the chess world
Kingpin is a very, very nice magazine
very, very entertaining . . . some of the back issues of Kingpin were instant classics
A great English chess favourite
The joy of chess is nowhere celebrated to such climactic excesses as in Kingpin
unquestionably the funniest chess magazine in the world
[its] satirical nature and penchant for sharp games makes it compulsive reading for the average club player
