With the recent announcement of the Spiel des Jahres nominees (see "2014 'Spiel des Jahres' Nominations"), Z-Man Games announced it will be publishing the English edition of Camel Up! sometime in 2014.
Designed by Steffen Bogen, Camel Up pits two to eight players against each other in trying to determine the show placement of five racing camels. As the dromedaries and Bactrian camels race around the pyramid, players bet on either specific legs of the race, or final placement; the earlier the bet is recorded, the more money can be won. The camels’ progress is determined by dice that come out of the pyramid dice shaker, released one at a time.
The box contains a pyramid, a game board, 5 camels, 5 dice, 40 race betting cards, 8 desert tiles, 15 leg betting tiles, 5 pyramid tiles, 50 Egyptian pound coins, 20 Egyptian pound cards, 1 leg starting player marker.
Release date and MSRP have not been announced.
