Five camels, a pyramid and up to eight players make Camel Up - an exciting camel race in the middle of the Egyptian desert. Players bet on the camels and try to type which of them will land at the front and which will gallop past the finish line last. But in all the crowds, the camels do not run neatly after each other, but jostle and push what the stuff holds.
The earlier you place your bet, the more you can win — should you guess correctly, of course. Camels don't run neatly, however, sometimes landing on top of another one and being carried toward the finish line. Who's going to run when? That all depends on how the dice come out of the pyramid dice shaker, which releases one die at a time when players pause from their bets long enough to see who's actually moving!
Camel Up is a simple, fast and entertaining betting game, where everyone gets their money's worth. A simple mechanism and low computability provide tension to the end.
