GoldToken's Monthly News

  • Pending Site Downtime

Continuing with our site rewrite, we are updating GoldToken's Operating System on Thursday October 5th right after backup at 3 A.M. PST. The site will remain down for a couple hours afterwards, while Tomas loads our backup and tweaks a few bits and bobs. Please plan on playing your games earlier, or later that day.

  • Continuing with GoldToken's Site Recode

I am so excited to see GoldToken's rewrite unfold. Mecir is doing a terrific job! It's been painfully slow but so worth it! The GoldToken's Gaming Commission Club is now open for players who have special understanding of game rules and how they should play. If you are interested in furthering the value of good play and have the needed qualifications, please contact GoldToken Support. This club has a three month goal to provide suggested corrections to our current games.

  • Contest Director & Assistant Wanted!

Must work well with others, have a great imagination for inventing contests, understand wiki formatting or be willing to learn. Experience in club management a plus. Please submit your application to GoldToken Support if interested.

  • Tournament Overall Time Limits

Heads Up for all tournament players! When a tournament is given an overall time limit, it then has two time limits. One for the number of days within which a move must be played, and the other that issues a strict number of days in which the game must by finished by each player. Each player is given the same overall time limit in which to make their moves. When a player has used all the time allowed for his or her side of the game, the game is up period. Vacation days can be used all the way up to the end of that overall time limit, but not beyond as there is no pausing an overall time limit. Thumbs up


Have a wonderful month and play like you mean it!

Testimonial Of The Month
Brought to you by: *GoldToken* Players

My sister told me about this site back in 2000 or 2001. I played as a guest for quite some time and officially joined Dec. 7, 2001. I started as Wood and only played my sisters at first. As time went on I began playing other people and was thrilled when I began to make friends from all over the world. I worked my way up to Platinum. I learned about clubs and how to edit the wikis. So I now spend probably too much time playing these silly games, but I love it. My favorite games of late are tabula, moultezim, tawula, officers skat, and large dice pipes.
