Advanced convention report:

The dealer room will be very busy on the first night and less busy thereafter.

Friends you meet on the first day or two you will not see again.

There are a lot of events on the schedule and some are better than others.

One of the two stage shows will be better than the other.

Some of the lectures will be more interesting than the others.

Mr. Kaufman is displaying strong psychic abilities. There is no doubt that his prophecies will come to pass.
Not the one who created the Potter Index.

Thanks, Scott--look forward to your reports!

(FWIW, I just found out that MAGIC Live overlaps for a day with the Creation Official Star Trek Convention at the Rio: https://www.creationent.com/cal/st_lasvegas.html --sounds like Geek heaven in LV...)

Pre-MAGIC Live event : Johnny Thompson, Rick Maue, and Paul Vigil on mentalism. A Penguin Live taping for the future. Some cool effects. I hope we can all be as sharp-minded as Johnny as time goes by.

The trading cards at the opening night party were photos of magicians' iconic effects and props. No faces. The object of the game, as in the past, was to trade cards to have a complete set of nine. Then once you identified the magicians you could seek them out for autographs.
The dealers' room was jumping as always and there were about 10 prize packages worth about $1000 each. And there were ice cream bars.
The main events begin Monday morning at 10 o'clock.
