I bought a book by Nimzowitsch
But to me it made no sense
For I thought that a prophylactic
Was a form of French Defence.
First published in Kingpin 28 (Spring 1998)
If more people read this magazine then it would have a higher circulation
The joy of chess is nowhere celebrated to such climactic excesses as in Kingpin
In Kingpin, nothing is sacred, and this makes Kingpin such a hit
I actually paid good money for No.9
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
the magazine I most enjoy . . . Gary Lane’s agony column is a must for all chess addicts
uses impiety and parody to hew down the conventions of publishing, even including mock testimonials
one of my favorite magazines
Scurrilous, funny, sometimes serious, sometimes libellous
