GoldToken's Monthly Newsletter
to RabidWolff of the Wolf Pack, who collected all 40 of the 20th Anniversary Tokens during the month of December! She's the winner of a 1-year membership extension! Her closest competitors were monkeytyper, who collected 38 of them, and Leeeeeesa, who collected 37. In all there were 759 Tokens earned during the competition, and eliphont551 did an amazing job keeping track of them all and posting them to players' profiles. Thank you to our newsletter team volunteers for the fun contests!
We will be giving away an Anniversary Token on several discussion boards for entering contests each month! In addition, you may see more contests pop up on other discussion boards at random throughout the year. Players who have collected all 40 Tokens by Dec 31, 2020, will be entered into a Shake Rattle & Roll tournament to win a GoldToken Duffel Bag and a 1-year membership extension of whatever level the winner has at that time!
Here's to a year of health, happiness and peace!
Wishing you much luck and tons of fun!

I am a newbie here on GoldToken, my really good friend cee-vs-tee introduce me. I feel as if I have been here for years. This is because in the short period of time that I have been here I have played against/with some great people who have made me feel so welcome! Everyone has been so kind and helpful. GoldToken is not like any other game site. The games are awesome, so many to choose from, and the people make you feel like family. I just recently got upgraded from a Guest to Silver because someone generously (I don't know who it is but I truly thank the person) gave me this opportunity and I am grateful! So now I will be taking advantage of this opportunity in a good way. I will be joining clubs, playing and learning more games, meeting more great people and I love all the Goldies, Icons, Discussion Boards, just so many things I am and looking forward to.

to these clubs!
ladyvic says she will be running a lot of tournaments and handing out Profile Tokens in honor of GoldToken's 20th Anniversary. Look for her in these clubs:
The Lisa's Teddy Bear Picnic on the Front Porch Club has some new officers: sallyp and Trsm149. They are trying to regroup the club in a new direction. They will have new ladders, will be playing a lot more wiki games and new automated tournaments each month. If you want more information, please contact Lisa Marie or one of her new officers.
The officers of The Sallyp and Friends Club would like to thank their members for taking part in so many of our tournaments this year and over the last decade and wish everyone all the best for 2020 and the new decade.
ALSO best wishes for a happy and healthy 2020 from meme22 from the The Cat Lovers Club
The Club Nascar Club will be starting a new year next month. Daytona starts a new year for 2020. If you not a part of the club contact PattyMac. Prizes are awarded at end of the year for winners.
Would you like to Learn to dance the Wiki. Would love to see over there, check it out Learn to dance the Wiki.
ALL who wish to learn about wikis contact johnnyyboy on the board or by pm. He has set up and run 1000's of wikis in lots of clubs over the years. Any members interested will have to join a club and take on the role of an officer of a club.
Please consider joining in and learning wikis; the reason is simple. GoldToken is trying to help and support the clubs which are the base of this great site. We need new members to step forward and learn these skills of running and keeping the clubs thriving. Help out in an established club or start your own club - you will find the job rewarding. Give it a try! If you do not like it, nothing is lost but it will give you an understanding of the effort that each club owner and the clubs' officers put in every day.
GoldToken, over the last couple of years, has lost some leading members of clubs due to them passing away so we need more people to step up. Please consider joining in and learning wikis!
