The Hoff (Josh Burch)
- Difficulty: EASY
- Category: CARD MAGIC
- Product Type: MAGIC TRICK
This is a very clever handling of the classic Hofzinser card problem with the four aces helping you find a selected card and ending with a surprise transposition. This version is as clean and easy a solution that you will find.
The four aces are produced and used to divine a selected card. A spectator takes the deck under the table and cuts the deck to select a card. With a wave of the hand, one of the aces mysteriously turns face down. When the selected card is revealed, it is discovered that the suit of the selected card matches the ace that has turned face down. After a magical gesture, the deck is spread on the table to reveal that a card has turned face up in the middle of the deck. Impossibly the face-up card in the middle of the deck is the ace that was just face down, and when the face-down card between the other aces is turned over, it is discovered to be the selected card.
Comes with two specially printed cards that you can add to any red Bicycle or Maiden back deck (The partial back on one of the gaffs is a Maiden back but could easily pass for a Bicycle back within this routine), and access to an online video tutorial. Manufactured by Penguin Magic.
"This is a great hands-off trick. Not only that but the spectator gets to make the selection in their own hands! I think Hofzinser would think this is pretty cool!!!" …Nathan Kranzo
"If you have always wanted to perform the infamous Hofzinger Ace Problem, then you need to forget about the hassle and get THE HOFF!" …Cody S. Fisher
