What is Camel Up about?

‘Camel Up’ transforms your tabletop into a thrilling desert racetrack where camels stack, race, and spring surprises on even the most seasoned gamblers.

This Spiel des Jahres (Game of the Year) winner has entertained my gaming group with laughter and competitive banter.

A Kaleidoscope of Fun and Frenzy

Camel Up brings horse race excitement combined with unpredictable camels stacking on top of one another. It’s a speedy and straightforward game filled with vibrant artwork that begs you to play.

Each game involves a series of thrilling rounds, players bet on which camel will finish first or last. The tension mounts as the quirky pyramid dice shaker releases a single, colored die that propels one camel forward while others anxiously await their turn.

The game is filled with twists: camels can catch a ride on each other’s backs, leading to dramatic comebacks and unexpected upsets that can overturn the whole race in a single move!  It is a dice-rolling game filled with twists and turns.

What makes it fun?

Simple rules and straightforward game mechanics help Camel Up appeal to a wide array of gamers. It is light and engaging, but with enough strategic depth to keep everyone involved.

The dice pyramid, provides a fair and entertaining way to handle randomization. The playtime is quick, ensuring that you can fit a game or two into an evening with no player left waiting for long for their turn.
