We are an authorized distributor and yes, that's the list of the folks who are authorized - if you know of any others selling then just contact PPS / Chicago Gaming as I'm sure they'd want to know who they authorized is selling games in back alleys to people they shouldn't be. Unauthorized distributors do nobody any good - you or us. We deal with it with JJP. Consumers are buying from unauthorized people who have no knowledge of games, can't service what they sell, can't order parts, can't do warranty repair work, can't intervene and deal with tech support for the customer, etc... What pisses me off is it's usually it's newbies that get taken as they just go to websites or Ebay and buy. You'll see alot of this pop up around Xmas time to take advantage of these folks just looking to buy a game and not get 'into' the hobby and research. These fly by nights have no booths at shows and don't bring games for attendees to play, don't support the shows financially, don't donate to tournaments, and a lot of other stuff anyone on an authorized list usually does. Think of it this way - if they aren't on an authorized distributor list there IS a reason why - surely they asked at one point and were denied or they don't have the financial means to buy product and support it - both should scare the hell out of you if you're spending $ 8,000 - $ 9,000. That said anyone who has games listed in the marketplace right now seems to be legit. Not sure what you are referring to, Hilton, as the bulk of the ads are from consumers who are selling their own personal games. All seems ok to me.
For what it's worth too - I have shipped maybe 40-50 MMRs so far - LEs and Standards and we have had next to ZERO service issues - a few minor things here and there but the quality of the game as others have said is incredibly impressive. I rarely need to get involved with any customers after they get their games. Trust me, that's really something as most every other game we sell has service issues - major and minor, and you know what it's kind of expected, but MMR has really been the exception. That's the truth.
