Inventor: Rebecca Bleau & Nicholas Cravotta

We were anything but speechless to learn that husband and wife inventor team Nick and Rebecca, of BlueMatter Games, had created a word game. In addition to inventing best-selling toys and games, Nick is a novelist who can’t get enough of word play and Rebecca, a fine artist who is dyslexic, has spent lots of time working with words. The California-based twosome spends hours playing word games—even on dates and vacations!
