I've just discovered this group and remembered the fun I had playing Rogue, Angband and Temple of Apshai. Any groups where I might find similar ones that are available to the public?

This is an excellent newsgroup for playtesting roguelikes, although
a lot of the regulars here don't release their source code, only
binaries (which /might/ be a problem if you're on a weird platform,
or just like to read code). In recent months, roguelike releases here
have included DoomRL, The Tombs, DiabloRL, and I think a new version
of GearHead, and probably a lot more I wasn't paying attention to.
When someone posts about a new release, there's usually a URL in the
post where you can download the game.

rec.games.roguelike.misc might get traffic related to more complete
games; I don't read it so I don't know. Of course there are newsgroups
for the individual popular RLs: r.g.r.nethack, r.g.r.angband, and so
on; see what groups your service carries.

Finally, try bouncing around Wikipedia and trying the external links,
starting at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Roguelikes .

HTH,

I think you get more content and less noise on a moderated group
dedicated to announcing finished (and half-finished) roguelikes,
like rec.games.roguelike.announce
