About Us


Our Mission Statement

GameColony.com 's mission is to replicate land-based tournaments of skill in a secure online environment and to maintain a thriving online community where players from all over the world are engaged in healthy skill-based competitions.



The Company

Established in 1999, GameColony.com (GC Corp.) is an Internet provider of universally popular competitive multi-player games of skill and strategy (see company overview). The company offers a state-of-the-art, live multi-player gaming destination where members can play a variety of free skill-based games and compete in fee-based online tournaments against other members to win real money prizes.

GameColony.com hosts skill-based tournaments for members who thrive on competitive play. GameColony.com provides a secure multi-player gaming platform, schedules and hosts competitive online tournaments, distributes prizes and maintains member's accounts and a user friendly entertaining site.

Tournament participants earn prizes for their skilled performance in professionally organized online competitions. Players enter online tournaments by purchasing tournament Tickets from GameColony.com. The winner(s) collect a prize based on a percentage of tournament prize pot comprised of entry fees (Tickets). The prize-purse for any specific tournament depends on the number of participants and the amount of entry fees collected.


Our Commitment to Players       What our players are saying       Webmistress' blog

GameColony.com is determined to deliver exceptional player experience online. The company has a highly experienced and hard working staff -- always ready, willing and able to assist the players. Skill-gaming is a leisure activity, and most psychologists agree that leisure is essential in living a well-balanced life. GameColony.com offers a great variety of games, a solid reputation and most importantly - an excellent entertainment value.

GameColony.com acts solely as an independent/impartial tournament host and leaves the outcome of every game in the players' hands.  Participants never play against 'the house' and there's always a winner based on one's skilled performance.

GameColony.com tracks player skill-based ranking and features a Ladder system where Ladder winners receive monthly Prizes.


Is Playing Games at GameColony.com Legal?

Since its inception in 1999, GameColony.com has operated in full compliance with US Federal and State Laws. Skill games have always been legal in the states in which GameColony.com operates.

GameColony.com games are no different from carnival games, chess and golf tournaments or other skill-based games that have been played for cash or prizes in the offline world for hundreds of years -- we've just taken them online.

GameColony's fee-based tournaments do not constitute gambling because they involve predominantly skill, as opposed to chance, and are designed as interactive online entertainment for adults. Participation is restricted to individuals of legal age in their respective jurisdiction. Players must also meet criteria for location eligibility in order to participate - please see our Terms and Conditions for full details.


How does GameColony.com Make Money?

GameColony.com business is conducted on the internet and exclusively through its website. GameColony accepts online electronic payments for Tickets online. Tickets can be purchased only through PayPal and credit cards.

Like the host of a chess or golf tournament, GameColony collects a percentage of each player's entry fee every time they enter a new competition in exchange for managing the tournament. GameColony acts as an impartial tournament host with no vested interest in the outcome of each competition and never acts as the 'house'. The company derives profit from a percentage of entry fees paid to host the skill-based competitions.
