attractive zany humour
Unpredictable, honest, the funniest
Kingpin is a very, very nice magazine
Kingpin is not a chess magazine in the normal sense of the word
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
combines an amusing style with solid instruction
The joy of chess is nowhere celebrated to such climactic excesses as in Kingpin
sharper than a bone-saw!
unquestionably the funniest chess magazine in the world
very, very entertaining
