Quick question. Can someone please size-up an issue of NGC Magazine for me?

Anything to do with games at all.

I'm looking to buy some suitable holders for my old mags, but the 'fat' issues of NGC (after it first redesigned, issue late-sixties onwards IIRC) are at my dad's. Could someone with access to a copy of one of these bigger issues give it a quick measure up with a ruler / tape measure and let me know just how wide they are?

EDIT: research suggests these were issues 68 through to 79.

Blimey - Gecko going above and beyond with that response!

N64 / NGC / Nintendo Gamer were all massive :-). They looked cool but once you started getting a collection going they could take up a ton of space.

I'm missing some issues but I have mostly up until NGamer. That only uses up about a cubic foot on a shelf in my living room. I swore I had more, but I think my memory just exaggerated the amount of awesome.

I had every issue of NGC Mag until a few years ago when I threw away the last few issues (four I think) that didn't come with proper spines, they were just stapled. The quality of the magazine had gone downhill pretty badly by that point, sadly, so I didn't think anything of it, but now I kind of regret it as it means my collection isn't properly complete.

The majority of the NGC Magazine era was unbelievably good though. I definitely want something decent to store those copies in. Thanks GG!
