In the chess satire stakes @KingpinEd are masters of the art form … a veritable feast: irony, sarcasm, hyperbole
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
Aside from being funny, Kingpin is often pretty controversial too, with many an allegation or insinuation strewn amongst its pages
The joy of chess is nowhere celebrated to such climactic excesses as in Kingpin
Britain’s most entertaining chess magazine
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
Unpredictable, honest, the funniest
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
Its rather coarse satirical manner may not appeal to everyone – just the majority of us who enjoy sharp games and low humour
unquestionably the funniest chess magazine in the world
