On behalf of the Catalyst Demo Team, we would like to take a moment to say "Thank you!" to the fans that made 2014 such a wonderful year.
We experienced record setting attendance attendance at both Origins and GenCon as well as had the opportunity to run events for you at a load of new conventions across the globe. It is our pleasure to provide countless hours of fun for you (and ourselves)!
Convention season never ends for us and we are already looking forward to our first set of conventions starting in January 2015. Please keep an eye out for upcoming conventions and game store events on this website, because we want to make sure you have an opportunity to enjoy the host of games we demo.
Thanks again and have a Happy New Year!

With Origins behind us now, I wanted to take a moment and thank all of the Agents and Players who came out to make this one of the best Origins ever. It was a fun filled weekend that was desperately needed in many ways. Each one of you that came to help and play made an impact and you are very much appreciated. Without you, we could not have done it. So, a few tidbits of info:
Over the course of the weekend we ran 120 miniatures events with 22 Agents! That alone is totally awesome! In those 120 events (four of which we didn't even schedule!) we had 454 players attend them. That does not mean 454 unique players, as many of our players played in multiple events, it means we had 454 "slots" of attendance. Broken down further, we had 242 tickets and 230 generic tokens given to play in our events. And the last number I have to share is all of this translates into 855 hours of players having fun in our events. This could not be possible without you guys.
It was so awesome to see the introductory events, Shakedown Cruise for Leviathans and Bootcamp for Battletech, packed with new players learning how to play our games! It was also awesome to see players and Agents enjoying themselves at all of our events in the miniatures hall. I only got to pop into the RPG area a few times, but again it was busy all convention too!
I want to give a big shout out to Bull, Tinner, Ray, and everyone else that made the "special" event on Saturday happen. Pretty much last minute, an awesome event was dropped into their laps and they made it happen without complaint and with fun for everyone involved! The incredible Felica Day wanted to learn how to play Shadowrun, and in record times these guys made it happen. If you've seen any of the photos on CGL's facebook page, I think you could say she had fun.
The minis hall had a celebrity attend one of our events as well, Sandra Garrity wanted to learn how to play Leviathans and our own Jen made her feel welcome, at ease, and really enjoy herself!
So again, thank you to everyone that could make it! I hope everyone had fun and I look forward to another Origins in 2013!
