24. Cartamundi to acquire The United States Playing Card Company. http://bit.ly/31cTpah

Wow. If you care about suppliers, that's a big deal. Two top-quality vendors there, though. I hope they're smart enough to leave the brands alone and keep the value of what they're buying.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.
