GoldToken's Monthly News


  • 19 years of GoldToken!

Did you notice the fancy logo on October 5th? It was GoldToken's unofficial 19th anniversary! The site wasn't officially active until January 1, 2000, but players were able to sign up as early as October 5, 1999. Luckily, GoldToken survived the Y2K frenzy. Grinning



Wishing you much luck and tons of fun!

1st Stop Information
Site tips and helpful tools

I've got a problem with one of my games. Who should I contact?

This is a common question! First, check to see if it's really a problem - it sounds like a no-brainer, but there are some interesting twists that are commonly forgotten about or overlooked during game play. For example, forced jumps in Halma. Falling So, check the rules of the game. They can be accessed via a link beneath your game board or through the "New Game" link...when you click on a game type, you'll see links to the rules for that game and any variants. You can also post on the discussion board for the game in question, accessed by clicking on the "Game Discussions" link at the top of the page. GoldToken has so many helpful and knowledgeable players, and they are a great resource! If you are unable to find an explanation for the problem you've encountered, then the Bug Reports discussion board may be the place for you. Offering flower

Well, guys, it looks like Fall (Autumn) Growing a tree is coming - in this part of the country, anyway. More time to spend playing games on GoldToken? Cheerleader Or maybe spending some time on the Pony Up! Cowboy Riding a Stick Horse board while waiting for more games? A new game has been introduced on the Pony Up! board, called "Jeopardy", where you have to answer the statement with a question in order to guess correctly. So who can't use more Golderos or profile tokens? Maybe use any won golderos to extend your membership, help someone else with their membership, or buy tokens for yourself or a friend from the Recognition Tokens - GoldToken's Treasure Trove page. It's such a fun way to win! Click on the subscribe box on the Pony Up! board and take a guess at some of the contests that are run. Nothing else is required, and your profile page may start looking different with new tokens. So come one, come all Group hug and maybe you'll be the next one to win and figure out how to spend those golderos! Our recent winners are:

izzy in Celebrity Quotes
llwgirl in What is Wrong with this Picture?
macBruck in What GT Player?
Mary in Football Team Guess
pepperbeach in Jeopardy
Jools in the Screen Name Contest
bestgremlin in Name that Tune

• I joined GoldToken in Feb of 2009 at the invitation of my Brother “Slappy” and my Uncle “Fimmer”
• I have made many friends on GoldToken, and have had a couple become long distance friends.
• I play backgammon and many versions of it, that is my favorite. I play several versions of shake rattle and roll. And friends have been know to ask me to play games I have no idea how to play – but I will give them all a shot.
• I love GoldToken – it is an easy game site to use. I have tried playing backgammon on other sites but none are as user friendly as GoldToken. I also find when you ask them for help it comes quickly and with great friendliness.
• I log on at least once per day, some days I log on and play multiple times. I love tournaments, and ladders as well. I find playing players who are better than me improves my game.

Icon Mania!
Brought to you by: GoldToken's Icon Fairy

Happy Halloween! will be celebrated this month with Halloween icons. They can be found in Rows 1 and 2. Remember if you already have a saved icon for Halloween and you request one from the board, the saved icon will be placed on your profile first. Then, if you would like to exchange it for the one on the board and it is still available, we can do that and place your previously saved icon back into circulation. This way no icon gets forgotten. Thumbs up

Thanksgiving and Christmas will be fast approaching, so I will place those icons on the board on the next day after a holiday is over. For example, Halloween is over on Oct 31 so I will place Thanksgiving icons on the board on the 1st of November.

Have a fun and safe holiday - find your best costume { Image: goldtoken.com/pics/icon101005150438.jpg }, grab your bucket { Image: goldtoken.com/pics/icon101005144104.png }, look both ways before crossing the streets { Image: goldtoken.com/pics/icon131002135643.gif } (you just never know who's out there), don't eat to much candy { Image: goldtoken.com/pics/icon131002140650.gif } but best of all have fun { Image: goldtoken.com/pics/icon131022145827.png }!
