If more people read this magazine then it would have a higher circulation
very, very entertaining . . . some of the back issues of Kingpin were instant classics
leaves my game shiny, manageable, natural looking
Unpredictable, honest, the funniest
Kingpin is a very, very nice magazine
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
attractive zany humour
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
Utterly irreverent . . . genuine wit . . . good instruction for club players
unquestionably the funniest chess magazine in the world
