Antares Facebook Player Groups

Facebook Groups

Community FB GroupsThe following are Antares Facebook groups or local group pages that we’ve been told about. If you’d like us to mention your own Antares player group, do get in touch!

The main Facebook group for players of Antares is the Beyond the Gates of Antares (IMTel) group. On here there is a constant stream of discussion and pictures about the game as well as events, rules questions, ideas… loads. We keep the number of sales posts from third parties to a minimum. We often make use of it as a news outlet to let Antares players what’s going on!

All the other groups below are not administered by anyone at Warlord and are run by players for players. The admins acknowledge that some are quieter than they would like, but all welcome more contacts and wish to play and help potential players connect to each other. This page will undoubtedly be expanded as we go along!

If you’d like your own, local group entered here, do get in touch. Alternatively, local Antares clubs could have their own Nexus page.
