Dominic Crapuchettes captained an Alaskan salmon fishing boat for 12 seasons, but in his heart, he always dreamed about starting a board game company…

One stormy night, his boat took on enough water to submerge the batteries in the engine room. All of the electronics went dead, and Dom was forced to guide his boat home by the North Star. He vowed that if he survived, he would stop fishing and follow his dream. In 2003, he weighed anchor and started North Star Games!
