The following games have been reported as being roguelike in previous
versions of this list, but further information has shown that they are not:

Wanderer:  a box-pushing puzzle like sokoban.  (In c.s.g archives...)

Conquer, xconq:  Multiplayer strategic wargame (cs.bu.edu, jyu.fi)

There are a lot of things that aren't quite in the category of 
roguelike games, but that keep creeping into the roguelike
newsgroups...
     
For information about commercial games like Ultima, Wizardry, etc.: 
     comp.sys.*.games[.*]

For information about playing D&D or other fantasy roleplaying games 
with other human beings, face-to-face or by e-mail:
     rec.games.frp.*

For information about Multi-User-Dungeon games on the Internet:
     rec.games.mud.*

For information about other games to play when you feel like bashing
innocent bits and bytes: 
     rec.games.video.*

Finally, there are text-mode puzzle games, like Adventure, Zork, and the 
whole family of Infocom text adventure games.  If you want to *play*:
     rec.games.int-fiction
If you'd rather *write* them:
     rec.arts.int-fiction

If what you're looking for isn't listed above, don't post to the
roguelike groups - you'll just annoy the Ancient Dragons - try:
     rec.games.misc
