3 Solutions… to Hofzinsers Ace Problem
Contained in this project are 3 different approaches to Hofzinser’s Ace problem. In each variation, four aces are used to divine the suit of a spectator’s selection.

The construction of the effect is excellent as there is an initial effect or coincidence with aces which then allows for a truly impossible climax.
