Utterly irreverent . . . genuine wit . . . good instruction for club players
The joy of chess is nowhere celebrated to such climactic excesses as in Kingpin
very, very entertaining . . . some of the back issues of Kingpin were instant classics
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
one of the very few chess publications that call a chess spade a chess spade
Please, do people really believe what they read in Kingpin? I am amazed! It’s like taking a satirical show and mistaking it for the news
Kingpin is a very, very nice magazine
I actually paid good money for No.9
Publication of the British magazine Kingpin is always an eagerly-awaited event
In the chess satire stakes @KingpinEd are masters of the art form … a veritable feast: irony, sarcasm, hyperbole
