The Gaffed Card:
Misssing Card Hotline is a great magic trick as it involves you essential parading a gaffed card right in front of the audiences eyes as part of the trick. The audience has no idea how you did the magic trick although they are looking directly at the secret to this method.
The main problem a lot of inexperienced magicians face with card gaffs is they are nervous about getting the gaffed card out of the deck without the audience picking up on it. This problem is solved with this simple trick as you can play and remove the gaff in a way that makes sense to the audience.
Creating the Card Phone:
To do the Missing Card Hotline trick, you will need two extra cards and clear tape. One card needs to have quite a few pips, say a 7, 8, 9 or 10 of any suit, as the pips will act as the buttons of the phone. This is explained in the video tutorial.
The card force is very simple in this trick. If you are able to competently flick through cards, you will be able to successfully perform the Missing Card Hotline.
The clear tape is placed on the inside of the cards to make a temporary hinge. If you put the tape on the outside of the card, the audience will notice this and most likely point this out to you. By using the tape on the inside of the card, it becomes hidden and it’s less likely to wear out over time.
