If you count 40 days from December 25, you arrive at February 2—the day we celebrate the Feast of the Presentation of Jesus. When he was presented to Simeon, who was a just man, Jesus was told that he was “a light for revelation to the Gentiles, and glory for your people Israel” (Luke 2:32). On this same day, the Church also celebrates the Blessing of the Candles, formerly known as Candlemas—the Mass of the candles. Then the candles that will be used throughout the year are blessed. As you know, candles are a very important part of Catholic ceremonies. They symbolize that Christ is the light of the world, just as Simeon had said.

Catholic BLURT! Game



This game is free, however it is only to be used for classroom and personal use. It may not be published on any websites or other electronic media, or distributed in newsletters, bulletins, or any other form or sold for profit. Reproduction or retransmission of any materials, in whole or in part, in any manner, is not permitted.


Catholic BLURT is based on the game Bible Blurt.




Catholic BLURT! For 3 Players or 4 Teams. Recommended for ages 8 and up.

A fun and exciting way to review the Bible and the Catholic faith. When the Reader gives the Definition, blurt out the word you think it defines. There’s no penalty for wrong answers. You can blurt as many times as you want until somebody gets the correct answer. If you’re the first one to blurt the correct answer, move your pawn the number of spaces rolled by the Reader. If there’s a tie, read another Definition. Only the players who tied can blurt. If you land on a square that’s already occupied by another pawn, there’s gonna be a Showdown! The two players on the square have a Definition read to them by another player. If you’re first to blurt the correct word, you win the Showdown and may remain on the square. If you’re not first, you have to go backward the amount of squares shown on the die. If you land on a square that matches the color of your pawn, this is your big chance to challenge another player and takeover his or her square! Place your pawn on the same square with the player you want to challenge. Play the same way as you would in a Showdown, except the winner remains on the lead square, and the loser has to go back to the square from which the challenger came. The first player or team to return to “Start,” after going all the way around the Game Board, is the . . . WINNER! You don’t have to land there by exact count.



Need:

Game Cards
Die
Game Board
4 Pawns (red, yellow, blue, and green)



Directions- Print out Directions. Rule variations are included.

Game Board- Print game board on legal size paper (8.5” x 14”). Print out Game Board, trim, and glue on the inside of a legal size file folder or a piece of cardboard.

Catholic BLURT! title and START Square- Cut out Catholic BLURT! title and glue in the middle of the game board. Cut out START square and glue on game board like in the picture above.

Game Cards- (Use these Game Cards or make up definitions yourself and play with your class. You can make it specific to what you have been learning and to the students in your class. Game Cards are in MS Word and can be changed any way you like.) Print Game Cards out on card stock. Cut out Game Cards. Laminate or cover with clear contact paper to make them last. Use only the cards that reflect your student’s abilities. There are 232 Game Cards for you to choose from. Note: Please take in consideration that I am just a Mom and I'm providing these clues to the best of my abilities. I tried to make them as accurate as possible, but I know I probably made a few mistakes and it was not intentional. (Questions taken from a Catholic Bible.)
