Black to play
‘This games deserves a special prize for the most stunning move of the Olympiad’
Keene and Levy, Chess Olympiad Nice 1974: World Team Championship (Batsford, 1975), p.137
attractive zany humour
one of the very few chess publications that call a chess spade a chess spade
The joy of chess is nowhere celebrated to such climactic excesses as in Kingpin
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
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
sharper than a bone-saw!
combines an amusing style with solid instruction
unquestionably the funniest chess magazine in the world
Britain’s most entertaining chess magazine
one of my favorite magazines
