Camel Up is a simple family game where players place bets on a crazy camel race in the desert. Camels run not always past each other though, they often land right on top of each
other and carry one another around.
Five camels are racing around a square board and they are given a starting position by rolling dice. There are plenty of chances to bet on the results and how to influence the race.
Each turn, a player can perform on action: take a leg betting tile, take a pyramid tile, lay or move a desert tile or place a bet or a racing betting card.
Players must read the dynamics of the race and having a good sense of timing to beat the odds.
You can place short-term and long-term bets and the earlier you place your bet, the more money you can win.
The player who wins the most money is the winner.
