The Alternate Reality Gaming Network is the largest and most complete news resource available for players of online collaborative Alternate Reality Games. For many years, this site was the central hub for an affiliate network of sites that were independently owned and operated by volunteers for the enjoyment of themselves and the ARG community. In October of 2006, the site’s focus switched over to being a news network first and foremost, and will continue to operate in this facility.

Simply put, ARGNet is the place to be when news breaks about new ARGs, as it offers insightful, investigative reporting from dedicated, knowledgeable volunteers through articles, interviews and netcasts. Quite often, we also include interesting stories on events and innovative ideas that, while not direct news about ARGs, we think our audience will enjoy. We have an announcement list that you can sign up to that is low-traffic, but that serves as another way we can deliver breaking ARG news to you, and we are easy to contact through our voicemail, mailing address and contact form.
