At Catalyst Ranch, the original creative meeting venue located in Chicago’s West Loop, we take play pretty seriously. Games are part of the landscape here at the Ranch. Board games, card games, and puzzles adorn the book shelves around the perimeter of each room. Sometimes our Monthly Giveaway Prize is a challenging puzzle or funky desktop toy. We post a daily trivia question on our chalkboard in the lobby to get your wheels turning right away. At lunchtime we share the question on our Facebook page so everyone can get in on the fun! Our creative staff invented Pogo’s Activity Arcade, a vast collection of activities that your meeting facilitator can administer throughout the day. This incredible resource includes brain teasers, riddles, and competitive and collaborative craft projects! You may be wondering, Catalyst Ranch is a top-notch meeting venue; what’s up with all the games? As loyal Creative Juice readers know, purposeful play is an important part of the Ranch Philosophy. In our effort to create the ideal meeting environment, we make toys and games available to trigger feelings of nostalgia which open up the imagination. All of the stimuli at the Ranch is meant to engage the whole brain so your best ideas can flow.
