Britain’s most entertaining chess magazine
[its] satirical nature and penchant for sharp games makes it compulsive reading for the average club player
leaves my game shiny, manageable, natural looking
Both serious and funny, I recommend it to anyone who wants to smile as he reads
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
some of the most varied, sometimes most interesting, and certainly least inhibited chess writing available today
an entertaining, irreverent chess magazine that takes you over to the lighter side with verve and panache
irreverent and entertaining
one of my favorite magazines
very, very entertaining . . . some of the back issues of Kingpin were instant classics
