Ferret Forum

There are various fora and user groups for Ferret, official and unofficial.

The main site for discussion of the game is the Ferret Users group on Facebook.

The Authors monitor the Facebook site and occasionally make contributions to avoid any falsehoods permeating the ether.

For more experienced players there are advanced (private) discussion groups, which you will be invited to join once you reach the requisite entry level.
