Dominic Crapuchettes

Recipient, Rising Star, 2010


Dominic is the Founder and Co-President of North Star Games. He was raised in a family that played games three evenings a week. From a young age, Dominic co-dounded Protospiel, an annual convention of game designers. It was at the third Protospiel that he transformed Conceptual Pursuit, a trivia game he designed in high school, into the wildly popular Wits & Wagers. Wits & Wagers has gone on to win more awards than any party game in history. Dominic’s published games – Cluzzle (2004), Wits & Wagers (2005), Say Anything (2008), and Wits & Wagers Family (2010) – have collectively won over 60 awards.
