I wish I could resist the urge to view it on the Ipad and wait for the "real" thing. There's something so much better about the actual magazine - at least to this irrelevant old guy.

Anyone receive this in the mail yet? Just wondering if it will take longer because it's heavier. It shouldn't, of course, but logic seems to have no connection to the workings of the post office.

Giant-sized Genii arrived in Madison, WI on Saturday (Nov 17).

Love the timeline of Genii covers, and art/layout examples from many eras.

I look forward to sitting down for a full read over the holiday weekend!

Orlando in Monday's mail---I had to help the Mrs carry it from the mailbox. Goodie bag--Genii Bash--double issue. An amazing way to finish of the 75th year. Proud to be a subscriber for life! Congrats to the small but mighty Genii team.
Every day is a magical adventure!

And in Indiana. I was impressed with the digital edition, but the physical magazine is even more awesome. The Larsens and the Kaufmans should be very proud.

Picked up mine from the Post Office yesterday, so it arrived in southwest Virginia either on the 19th or 20th. Lots of holiday reading (and viewing, thanks to the DVDs in the goodie folio) ahead of me over the weekend. :)

North New Jersey yesterday. A nice Thanksgiving gift and a respite from the stress of dealing with the mess at the Jersey Shore.
Happy Thanksgiving all! Gratitude is at the top of my psyche today.

While I am still interested in hearing when your issue reaches you, I would also like to know which trick you like best among the 69 that I chose to include. There's a wide variety of times and everyone (I hope) will find at least one item that is of interest. Please post here.

Evan: it's a clever thing. The sliver can be tiny and half the thickness of a card and it will work. Makes doing a Second Deal as easy as dealing cards normally.

As an aside, the copy of the issue sent to our home arrived today, November 23.

So many great items - current favorite is blowing the dust off of Paul Harris's 'Erase the Ace' to put it back in my repertoire.

Impromptu, ends cleans, looks like CGI.
