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
unquestionably the funniest chess magazine in the world
A great English chess favourite
combines an amusing style with solid instruction
an entertaining, irreverent chess magazine that takes you over to the lighter side with verve and panache
Britain’s most entertaining chess magazine
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
very, very entertaining
