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
Kingpin is not a chess magazine in the normal sense of the word
uses impiety and parody to hew down the conventions of publishing, even including mock testimonials
In Kingpin, nothing is sacred, and this makes Kingpin such a hit
the gutter press of chess
a new kind of whiteness I never thought possible with my old Chess Magazine – and without boiling
an entertaining, irreverent chess magazine that takes you over to the lighter side with verve and panache
If more people read this magazine then it would have a higher circulation
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
