14 to 17 October 2020 – Pittsburgh, USA

Virtual 52 Plus Joker Convention

Meet legendary collectors & designers, hobnob with premier card manufacturers, and talk playing cards with other enthusiasts … all weekend long!

This year, the Annual Convention will not take place in Pittsburgh, but the officers will proceed to deliver as much of the planned content as possible by way of online events on a meeting platform such as ‘Zoom’.

Club President Lee Asher has extended this invitation to the IPCS. The offer is that IPCS members would be invited to any events they would like to attend. There will be a few 52 plus Joker member-only events, such as the AGM and auctions, which would be difficult to extend in a fair way for all.

The logistics for this should be fairly simple. Further details will be announced later.
