The American Checker Federation (ACF) has made the family strategy game site, GoldToken.com, its official online checkers play site. Under the terms of the contract, GoldToken will provide a wide-ranging set of checker-play enhancements to their site.
"ACF members have been asking for an 'official' home for their online checkers play," ACF President Alan Millhone stated. "The agreement we signed with GoldToken will provide our members with a high-quality on-line experience that meets our needs for serious checker play."
The ACF selected GoldToken at the end of a rigorous process that included vendor pre-qualification, evaluation of responses to a very complex request for proposals, and contract negotiations with the winning proposer.
"GoldToken was willing to provide the extensive set of features we require," added the ACF President, "and our qualification process determined that they would be able to deliver on their commitments to us."
Mr. Millhone pointed out that online checkers played at a serious level of competition is no mere child's play, involving significant skill and the adherence to strict rules and standards.
"We specified everything in detail, from the method by which opening moves are chosen to the exact color of the board and checker pieces," he said. "Our members are very serious about their checker play and they insist that everything be done according to the official rules."
Mary Strazicich, owner of the GoldToken site is positive about GoldToken's partnership with the ACF. "This contract will bring checkers on the internet to the next level, and will benefit not just the ACF but all GoldToken players as well as our over 100 classic online board games and strategy game variations like online chess, dominoes, pente, word games and backgammon," she said. "Our programming and design teams will deliver on the ACF's requirements over the next six to twelve months." This makes GoldToken the place to not only play chess online, but play checkers online too.
Besides American Checkers, GoldToken offers Brazilian Checkers, Canadian Checkers, Giveaway Checkers, International Checkers, Italian Checkers, Pool Checkers. Restriction Checkers (3 Man Ballot), Russian Checkers and soon will offer 11 Man Ballot, Turkish Checkers and other popular online checker variations.

But we can tell you that GoldToken will be adding a lot of online checkers related improvements and additions in the coming months. We know we'll find the wait practically unbearable, but definitely worth it. For the best in strategy game offerings, visit GoldToken.com.
