Sometimes the name of the distributors is a secret, sometimes it is not. Out of curiosity how many are there? I hate how Asmodee prevents consumers from getting the lowest prices but if there are many then the consumer benefits.

There are many, but Asmodee has become exclusive at one.

In the US there are five main distributors:

Alliance, PHD, ACD, GTS, and Southern Hobby

There are some smaller ones, too. One regional one I know is semi-big is Alladdin.

This is correct. Gaming stores can only buy Asmodee products through Alliance, which is also the largest comic book distributor (through their sister brand Diamond)
