Rules


  • Players will have an opportunity to apply for the games of their choice, but it will ultimately be up to each club to decide what players play in what tournaments.
  • There is no minimum or maximum of games each club has to compete in. However, there will be Olympic Tournaments in only a limited number of Games offered here at GoldToken. This limit varies over the years, as more games are added and become popular in turn.
  • These games will have strict time limits on them. Our goal is to complete all Olympic games within 365 days from the start of the tournament. Please play accordingly. All the tournaments will have the following limitations:
    • The regular 3 day limit per move. This limit is extended to allow the player's weekend days and vacations
    • A global limit of 60 days per player to complete the game. This limit is NOT affected by vacations.
  • There are no more limits on the number of games a player can enter. It is the responsibility of the player to ensure that he or she will be able to play the games in view of the time limits stated above.
    • Limits imposed on previous Olympics, no longer valid:
      • Up to the 2011 Olympics: Players were limited to 20 games, and no more than 2 variants per game category. Mysteries not included.
      • 2012 Olympics: Each contestant will be limited to 35 games each, Mysteries not included. No variant limitations.

  • So many points will be awarded for each Tournament won to represent the Gold, Silver and Bronze medals awarded to first, second and third place winners.
    • 10 for gold
    • 5 for silver
    • 3 for bronze

In case of equality, the points will be shared:
  1. if 2 players have the same number of points in first place they share the 15 points for 1st and 2nd place. Each will receive 7.5 points. The 3rd place winner(s) will receive or share the 3 points for bronze.
  2. if 3 or more players have the same highest number of points they share the totality of the 18 points for the tournament; in that case there are no other winners.
  3. if there is 1 player with a highest score and 2 or more players with the next highest: the 1st player gets the 10 points for gold, the other players share the 8 points for 2nd and 3rd place.
  4. special rule for determination of bronze, in case the last round has only 2 players: the gold and silver is distributed as before. To determine the bronze winner we rely on the round before last. For each section we take into account the number of players in the section. The bronze medal winner(s) is(are) the one(s) who in the round before last has the highest score, divided by the number of games per player in his section (the 2 finalists excluded)


  • WINTER_OLYMPIC~~~~PRIZES to be awarded after all Olympic games have ended:

  • An award of 5 Golderos will be awarded to each member of the club with the most points, excluding the winners noted below.
  • An award of 3 months membership, of what ever that players current membership is at the time the award is given, will be awarded to the player with the third highest points (Bronze winner).
  • An award of 6 months membership, of what ever that players current membership is at the time the award is given, will be awarded to the player with the second highest points (Silver winner).
  • An award of a 1 year membership, of what ever that players current membership is at the time the award is given, will be awarded to the player with the most points (Gold winner).
starting with the 2015 Winter games no specific prize will be given out to any officer for organizing the games or presiding a club. Such work is purely voluntary. An officer of a club is of course eligible for any other prize mentioned above as a regular player.

  • SUMMER_OLYMPIC~~~~PRIZES to be awarded after all Olympic games have ended:

Players do not have to remain in the clubs to play once the tournaments start, but do have to remain in their club to receive any prizes. Players that drop out of their Olympic club for any reason have two weeks to rejoin. Otherwise, they forfeit any prizes and will not be able to rejoin the club for the remaining duration of the Olympics.
