Camel Up

As members of Egyptian high society, you gather in the desert with one simple goal: to gain the most money by backing the right camel to win a leg or even the entire race.

However, in this race, its not just the lucky ones who can beat the odds. Reading the dynamics of the race and having a good sense of timing is just as important when it comes to backing the right camels and taking the victory.

Place your bids wisely and decide when it is time to strike, and maybe just maybe with a little bit of timing and a lot of luck, your bid will pay off!

  • Quite simple betting game with a fun theme. I'd really only play this with kids, though - Randomness and huge swings are the name of the game here.

  • Accessible light family game. Bonus feature is it supports up to eight players. Always a laugh, always a surprise at the end.

Of the racing theme games I either own or have played I would rank them:

  1. #Downforce - Note this includes both expansions which are a blast.  Pretty easy to play multiple races.  My favorite
  2. #Camel Up - I love the #Camel Up: Supercup Expansion as well. 
  3. #Flamme Rouge - A great game with a little bit of strategy.  Plays best at 3 or 4 players.
  4. #The Quest for El Dorado
  5. #Tales & Games: The Hare and the Tortoise

Yeah 55 for extended family is "small" for me and my family as well.  My dad was 1 of 8 and my mom is 1 of 12.  Family gatherings for my mom's extended family can get close to 150 - 200 people if all of the cousins and their kids show up.  Yes, they end up renting a reception hall/church basement to hold everyone.  Dad's extended family ends up closer to 100 if everyone shows up. 

#Sheriff of Nottingham, #King of Tokyo, #Diamonds, #For Sale, #Citadels: Classic, #Skull, #Camel Up, #Sushi Go Party!, #Just One are games that end to get played (depending on what I bring with me)

This is really awesome. 

I would start my collection again probably pretty similar to how i started it in the first place.

  1. #Clank! A Deck-Building Adventure
  2. #Carcassonne
  3. #Camel Up
  4. #Lords of Waterdeep
  5. #Pandemic

Those are all games that still get plays even 4 or 5 years after initial purchase.  The one with the fewest recent plays, Pandemic, is such a great intro to the hobby that I'd still get it even if its been eclipsed by some other co-op games for my group.

For the hard to find game. 

  1. I want #Tannhauser  I have't seen that anywhere.  I've wanted this game since listing to Same from the Dice Tower talk it up in a couple of videos a couple of years ago. 
  2. #Snow Tails
  3. #Blood Rage


2 games of #Flash Point: Fire Rescue with 3 players.  Played on the office side with regular difficulty and got crushed both times. 

1 game of #Camel Up w/ #Camel Up: Supercup Expansion.  I won a pretty tight game.  Love the expansion for this game.

I've actually introduced them to some they've really enjoyed which is why their desire to play monopoly was...confusing to say the least haha.

Their favorite for awhile was#Camel Up but I think that got overtaken by#Monikers this weekend!

Camels + Racing = #Camel Up

Too many races + Territory Control = #Small World

Dinner Building + Card Drafting = #Sushi Go Party!

Haunted House + Traitor Game = #Betrayal at House on the Hill

Iconic Monsters + King of the Hill = #King of Tokyo

Bean Farming + Trading = #Bohnanza: Bohna Nostra

Trains + Route Building = #Ticket To Ride

I could do this all day...
