SLC FanX 2017

The big news for SLC FanX 2017 was that Princess Bride stars Chris Sarandon and Cary Elwes were coming. Stan Lee was going to make his announced final appearance in Salt Lake, but unfortunately, couldn't make it.

A personal milestone at SLC FanX was my first attempt at hosting a booth. I'd been told to give it a try, and finally decided to do so. I created a series of tangram posters for the occasion. I felt that they needed more color than simply shadowy images, so as well as creating over 150 new tangram puzzles for the event, I also colorized them. Color brought them to life so much that I feared the black originals were suddenly drab in comparison.

It was a good learning experience. Had I sold two more games, I would have broken even.

The most amazing piece of feedback I got was when I gave Greg Grunberg a tangram pack and said that it included the "Lost Airplane" that I had tweeted earlier. He got excited and said that he'd seen it and shown it to JJ Abrams. He said JJ loved it, and loves all sorts of puzzles and things like that. I couldn't get over that JJ Abrams had seen and liked my tangram. I returned later and gave Greg two posters, one was my tribute to "Star Wars" and the other to "Star Trek." He had me sign them and asked if I was ok with his putting them on the wall for his show "Geeking Out." Absolutely cool by me!
