Also, the site is “invitation only”,
but invitations are available freely and un-exclusively Update: this offer expired in Sept, 2010. Update: Wade adds: “The Invitations are only widely available this summer at the conventions. After that, they will only [be] available though current member invitations.” If you’d like a free invite (and, apparently, a free Zendikar booster pack in limited quantities), contact them and tell them Purple Pawn sent you.
The site is co-founded and run by Wade Sugiyama, a former WizKids manager; the other co-founders, the sponsors, the vendors contributing items, and all other information is still pending the signing of contracts. Wade stuck around at NECA for a while to help them relaunch Heroclix, but left in March and has devoted his time to this site.
“Contact them” link is broken (should be “mailto:”?).
Let me get this straight: Deniath will require me to find an existing member (or in this case, a blogger offering free registrations), so I can have the privilege of letting them sell me things? Is identity theft in the gaming crowd so rampant that sellers can no longer trust their buyers without implementing a trust circle? Or let me guess, the company is so honorable that they would be heartbroken if one of their fantastic deals went to waste on a random internet consumer, instead of their loyal, elitist customers?
Annoying marketing tripe.
cLee, Decipher also tried this as a marketing gimmick for a while (they’ve since dropped it). I think the idea was to foster a sense of exclusivity, i.e. to have people wanting to “get in”. I doubt very much that you’ll be responsible for the people you actually invite.
nevermind, i’m a fcking idiot, deniath is awesome
