Scripted #25: Hofzinser Card by Larry Brodahl

The Hofzinser gimmick is an odd gimmick that has limited usage. But with a little analysis and some scripting you can make an effect that, while not magic, is still entertaining.

The Hofzinser card is a gimmick, not a trick. So what can you do with it. Well, the author of How To Write A Script shows how he used his methodology to write a script that entertains even though it doesn't fool anyone. And it gives the spectators the feeling that they're seeing something from the crooked gamblers handbook. It even allows the spectators to examine the card without fear of the card being damaged.

The ebook also takes you through the an overview of some of the steps of script writing and routine design used to create the script.

Larry's done it. As intriguing as the Hofzinser card might be, the on-going question has consistently been "What do you do with it." I like how someone said it, "When the method is more interesting than the effect, build on the method." That's exactly what Larry has done here in an admirable manner. If you have a Hofzinser card laying around in a drawer entertaining no one, I encourage you to download this now.
