ClubFloyd Transcript:
Hollywood Hijinx by Dave Anderson and Liz Cyr-Jones
As played on ifMUD on May 22 & 29, 2022

The idea behind ClubFloyd is that each week at a pre-arranged time, a group of people meet online to cooperatively play a game of interactive fiction.

Below is a transcript of Hollywood Hijinx written by Dave Anderson and Liz Cyr-Jones. Hollywood Hijinx was released in 1986 by Infocom. You can learn more about the game, including how to download it, by visiting IFDB.


WARNING! Below you will find a transcript of people playing these games, and it goes without saying that the transcript is full of spoilers. So, if you've never played these games, and think you might like to at some point, I do not recommend reading any further. Instead, you might want to return to the interactive fiction page.

#ClubFloyd Discussion



*** SESSION ONE ***
DavidW says, "Hollywood Hijinx was a fun silly game. I don't remember the statue turn sequence for unlocking the front door, though."
DavidW says, "A lot of people were less happy with Hijinx, though."
Jacqueline says (to DW), "I don't think I ever played Hollywood Hijinx"
DavidW asks (of Jacqueline), "REALLY? You didn't see the ATOMIC CHIHUAHUA?!?"
Roger says, "That sounds like it would have been memorable"
Jacqueline says, "Nope"
DavidW asks, "There's also a room where you push a piano to make the floor tilt?"
DavidW asks, "Lots of colored punch cards?"
Jacqueline says, "No, never seen any of that."
Jacqueline asks, "Should I upload it? Is it worth seeing?"
DavidW says, "I think it's worth seeing, yes."
DavidW says, "But we'll need the feelie or info from it to get the front door open."
Jacqueline says, "Ha. Well, okay. One sec."
DavidW says, "Like, we need to turn the statue east then north then south. Something like that."
DavidW says, "This game also features skis, iirc."
Jacqueline says (to ClubFloyd), "load sleepmask hwhijinx"

CF | As night falls the black limousine turns off the highway. It has all
CF | happened so fast, you think to yourself. Your Aunt passing away
CF | without any warning, the funeral this afternoon, and now this unusual
CF | stipulation in her will. The limo pulls up to the front of the house.
CF | "This is the end of the line," says the attorney, and you step out of
CF | the back of the limo. "Remember, your Aunt Hildegarde's will stated
CF | you will inherit her entire fortune -- if you can find the ten
CF | 'treasures' in one night."
CF |
CF | He hands you a photo of Uncle Buddy and a letter, saying, "Her will
CF | instructed that I give you this photo, with the poem, to point you in
CF | the right direction. Also this letter, and here, you'll need this." He
CF | gives you a flashlight. "Meet me at 9 a.m. in the living room with all
CF | the 'treasures' and you'll inherit her entire estate," he says as the
CF | limo pulls away and disappears into the night's darkness.

CF | You're standing in front of the house where you spent many of your

CF | west around the house, and a larger main walkway leads north.
CF |
CF | A life-size statue of Buck Palace, one of the stars of Uncle Buddy's
CF | talent stables, stands here. He's holding a bazooka pointing north.

CF | west from the park is Tokyo's main street. In the street west of the
CF | park there is an Atomic Chihuahua. The entire model is covered by a

CF | buttons: a blue button, a black button, a green button, a white button
CF | and a red button.

MoyTravis says, "Yes. I am."
MoyTravis says, "But, like, my grandpa didn't write in cursive."

DavidW says, "I write in cursive all the time."
MoyTravis says, "Well I wonder if him being Chinese made a difference."
MoyTravis says, "Anyways please drive I could not possibly drive this."
DavidW says, "Chinese has stroke order instead, so their bad scribbles still are readable."
MoyTravis says, "Huh! Interesting. Nobody I know my age uses cursive but then people also tend to write less."
Jacqueline says, "I have sort of mixed handwriting. Part print, part cursive."
DavidW says, "I don't remember what all these buttons do. The goal is to get the diamond ring."
MoyTravis says, "lol there's a real issue with the very young where nobody can actually WRITE any of the characters because of phone input systems."

CF | ran off toward the roses shouting something about being a rhinoceros.
CF |
CF | After howling until your throat felt like you had puffed on one of

CF | you arrived you couldn't believe your eyes -- Cousin Herman had pulled
CF | all the thorns off of all of Aunt Hildegarde's rose bushes in a quest
CF | to find the biggest thorn possible so he could be a rhino. Of course

CF | Entrance to Hedge Maze
CF | This is the entrance to the hedge maze. Aunt Hildegarde told you never
CF | to go into the maze without the map, and of course you would go in
CF | anyway and she would have to come in and find you.
CF |
CF | Guests were forever getting lost in the maze at parties. Sometimes you
CF | wished Cousin Herman would go in and never come out. But you always
CF | had the feeling he was thinking the same about you, only more
CF | seriously. Tall hedges, thick and green, stretch along paths leading
CF | to the east and west and a grass path north enters the maze. A stone
CF | walkway leads south.
CF |
CF | Shadows pour over you as grey clouds sweep past the night's full moon.

CF | Top Landing
CF | This is a rickety landing at the top of a long flight of old, wooden
CF | stairs leading down to the beach far below. You and Cousin Herman
CF | would race down these stairs in the summertime to see who would get to
CF | the water first. Usually Cousin Herman would trip you and win. A path
CF | in the grass leads west.

CF |
CF | You shuffle over the edge of the landing, and quickly gain momentum as
CF | you sail down the stairs. Ahead of you is the gap in the stairs.
CF | Racing into the gap, your skis bow slightly, but your forward momentum
CF | pulls you across the gap. You hit the landing at the bottom of the
CF | stairs but don't stop. You continue down a short flight of stairs then
CF | sail onto the sandy beach. You quickly stop with the drag of the sand
CF | and a feeble attempt to snow plow.
CF |
CF | Beach
CF | This is the end of a beach which stretches to the east. The fine white
CF | sand underfoot reflects the light. A slight breeze blows off the ocean
CF | to the north. A wooden landing is south of here, and an inlet lies
CF | west.
CF |
CF | Lying near the fire is a green match.
CF |
CF | You can see a small, smoldering fire here.
CF |
CF | > DavidW says, "ah right. Here's the 2nd match."
Knight_Otu asks, "Someone lit a fire here, eh?"
DavidW says, "I'm reasonably certain that we need to use this fire to light a candle, then drip wax over BOTH matches to make them waterproof."
DavidW says (to Knight), "Part of the story has yet to be revealed."
DavidW says, "But yes. Someone did light it."
