                  FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How many can play Catalyst? The game is set up for 2-6 people, but any number can play. The more players there are, however, the longer the game tends to go. We once used a pistachio shell as a game piece to accommodate a seventh person.

Can I play by myself? Although Catalyst is intended for group play to foster community and gain more insight, Catalyst can be played alone. In that case, make sure to listen to your inner wisdom and be open to unconventional ways of looking at your focus. Also be certain to finish up the game by writing down your Inspiration at the end (see if you can get a friend to help support you in the fulfillment of those intentions). It is recommended to play with others, however, whenever possible. Call a few friends and have a Catalyst party!

Can kids play too? The game was originally designed to entertain adults primarily, but surprisingly, kids seem to like Catalyst, too. So if you have an older child that is psychologically or spiritually insightful, who interested in playing, there is nothing in Catalyst that is for adult eyes only. They may just need a little help withunderstanding some of the words or concepts. I have plans in the works to create a game for families with children that will encourage self-empowerment & creativity, understanding each other outside of familial roles, and having LOTS of fun together.

How long does it take to play Catalyst? To get the most out of the game, set aside at least a half hours worth of time per player. However, Catalyst can be played within any time frame you wish.

Do we really need a facilitator? The facilitator is necessary for keeping the game moving and to remind people to apply what they experience to their focuses. It really isn't hard and there is generally someone in any group who is willing to be in charge of this. For people who would like more hints on how to facilitate Catalyst, I will be adding some extra tips for game play to this website in the very near future and will update as things occur to me.

How do I get more Catalyst Worksheets? Through this website and for FREE. Soon there will be value-added material like a window to print more worksheets, and extra game play & facilitation tips. If you need more worksheets before the link is posted on the web, please fill out the form below and request the worksheet template. I would be happy to send it to you as a PDF attachment.  

Are there plans for any others versions of Catalyst? Absolutely. Once the first edition is well established, the next projects planned are a family edition to help parents and children communicate better, grow closer, and empower each other, and a Christian edition. Catalyst is getting a lot of attention from the Hispanic community so a Spanish language version is likely to come in the not-too-distant future.
