unquestionably the funniest chess magazine in the world
the gutter press of chess
[its] satirical nature and penchant for sharp games makes it compulsive reading for the average club player
a must-read for everyone who doesn’t take chess too seriously; it’s especially a must-read for everyone who does take chess seriously
Utterly irreverent . . . genuine wit . . . good instruction for club players
William Hartston, The Independent
Britain’s most entertaining chess magazine
Scotland on Sunday

James Plaskett, New Statesman

a new kind of whiteness I never thought possible with my old Chess Magazine – and without boiling
