Whilst the slot machine reels in the upper Playfield make this game unique and quite diverse, I find the game lacks character. I was never a fan of Christian Marche until his later stuff.
Not a disappointing game, indeed you can get your money' worth, simply a tad dull.

This review is based off of my Klondike rating.

Yukon Special is one of those games that really sneaks up on you and makes you realize the amount of game that is in this deck is astonishing.

The Pros:
Great shots all over the PF. The center saucer is a great "randomizer" for the ball in this design. 5 pops mean great action especially back up towards the combination reels at the top of the design. The 2 upper saucers are touch shots that while the ball can be guided in rather easily, make sure that the entire PF is utilized. Advancing the center reel from the orbits are TOUGH shots. Christian Marche pointy people (and horses and bears and ducks) make this whole art package scream 70's pinball!

The Cons:
Mine needs a new BG. FEEL THE PAIN! The center saucer is rarely scored.

The Takeaway:
I "nastified" my game by taking the posts out on the PF by the flippers. This game went from challenging to downright brutal. If you don't have your control skills on point with this deck and that setup, your game is over right quick.
