Yukon Salon: A Beary Hairy Game

Created by David Fooden

Yukon Salon is a creative, fast-paced card game for 2-4 players competing to be the best stylist in the Yukon by styling hairdos for Grizzly Bears and beards for Lumberjacks. Each client that you style rewards you with a combination of points to win the game and abilities and bonuses to help attempt riskier styles on more difficult clients. Sway the clients into choosing your style by making outrageous, unique claims and press your luck to earn the right mix of points and rewards.

Just a short, sweet update, since I've been packing all night to go to PAX South tomorrow.

We're SO close everyone, 82% in the first two days! 

If any of you will be at PAX South, please come by the Indie Showcase booth, check out all of the excellent games that got in, say hello, and play a game of Yukon Salon with me! Or if you have friends who'll be there, tell them to stop by! I'll be sure to post an update from the convention.

What a lovely day!

First of all, a huge thank you for the outpouring of support. 173 of you got Yukon Salon 68% funded on its first day! Hot damn. Virtual hugs and hi-fives all around.

It’s simultaneously humbling and gratifying to see something you’ve worked so hard on in relative obscurity for a couple of years be this well-received. Is there a German word for that feeling? There’s probably a German word for that.

It’s a strange, fraught time to be alive in America folks. Despite that, I hope my weird Gilliam-esque idea for a game interjects some fun and humor to your lives. To a whole lot of lives, really.

We’re pretty close to funding, and once we get there I’ll start talking about stretch goals. I can’t wait to share some of these with you. Yukon Salon is already a fun game with some great artwork, and we can make it a super-deluxe fun game with some great artwork. But one freaky bear hairstyle at a time, as they say in the Yukon. They say some odd stuff up there.

If you haven't already, please share this project on the social media outlets of your choice. Every bit of signal boost really does help, whether you’ve got 12 Facebook friends or 3.08 million Twitter followers or…whatever happens on Instagram. Filters? Filters. Sure.

Thank you all again, talk to you soon!
