Gray Matters Games On Target For Growth

Some family moments are timeless. Whether it’s the way a Scrabble tile feels between your fingers as you try to maximize points for a five letter word, the joy on the face of a child when they’ve finally wound their way through the twisting, turning, multi-colored trail to reach Candyland, or the satisfaction of collecting the final piece of pie to end a game of Trivial Pursuit. First Light host Brian O'Keefe visited with the Glen Ellyn couple who've turned a love of board games into a growing start-up business.
