Both serious and funny, I recommend it to anyone who wants to smile as he reads
Scurrilous, funny, sometimes serious, sometimes libellous
In the chess satire stakes @KingpinEd are masters of the art form … a veritable feast: irony, sarcasm, hyperbole
uses impiety and parody to hew down the conventions of publishing, even including mock testimonials
The joy of chess is nowhere celebrated to such climactic excesses as in Kingpin
the gutter press of chess
leaves my game shiny, manageable, natural looking
een mixture van absolute totale kolder en serieuze schaakinformatie
very, very entertaining . . . some of the back issues of Kingpin were instant classics
If more people read this magazine then it would have a higher circulation
