Its rather coarse satirical manner may not appeal to everyone – just the majority of us who enjoy sharp games and low humour
I actually paid good money for No.9
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
A great English chess favourite
attractive zany humour
sharper than a bone-saw!

uses impiety and parody to hew down the conventions of publishing, even including mock testimonials
Both serious and funny, I recommend it to anyone who wants to smile as he reads
