Great quality game, beautifully designed and lots of fun (and who doesn't want to build a teetering tower of racing camels and get rich off of their hard work?). This was a gift from my wife and it was probably the high point of my Christmas. We played it with ages ranging from 4 to 72 and everybody loved it and wanted to play again as soon as the race ended.

Since then, I've brought it into regular rotation as a nice palette cleanser between more intense games on gaming nights. It's always fun and sometimes we're enjoying ourselves so much that the other games we had planned on playing fall by the wayside for the evening (accursed addictive camel gambling).

Honestly as far a racing games go this is the new top of the list for me! you feel invested in the race, and anything can happen. I have played this with my game group and my family a hit in both! a must play game! (Posted on 11/30/15)

I wouldn't play it with less than four people, but with four or more it is a blast. I mostly enjoy deeper strategic games, but Camel Up does a a great job of balancing random chaos with a sense that you really can predict the next round. Our strategies varied wildly between turns, people, and games, and no one got a real sense of the best way path, which I think is a good sign in a game that might initally appear simple. The art is fun and the components are great, even the gimmicky pyramid feels like it fits perfectly. I wouldn't play it all night, but this is perfect for people who aren't deep into games, or when you have a bigger group and mostly want to be social. (Posted on 8/21/15)
Totally random. Completely fun!! Review by Alex

I was a little concerned that this game would be like the Hare and the Tortoise from Iello games but it is way more crazier. While Hare and the Tortoise is a betting and racing game which is focussed more on the race itself, Camel Up is a betting and racing game focused completely on the betting.

This is as random as it gets. It is like going into a horse race blindly and then betting on your horses and placing more bets as the race progresses but instead you are betting on camels that can carry each other and that is where the hilarity ensues.

This game is stressful in a fun kind of way. I find that the group that I played with had very mixed feelings about it. They didn’t like that they were in control of the race but they enjoyed how it felt intense. There are only a few things that you can do which affects the outcome of the race but those things are still based entirely on randomly generated outcome. As for your other actions, it is just straight up betting. And that’s what I love about this game. The mechanics are very clever in the sense that it makes the race very very random. You may think that you are betting on a winner but then suddenly the camel at the very back is actually making is way back in the lead and then you will be freaking out about it because you already placed your bet. This game is chaotic, and frustrating in a fun kind of way.

On the first time you play it, the players will feel a bit strange about the game because they will feel like they had no control but if they give it a second chance, they will really understand that this game is really all just about being lucky and strategizing your betting based on probability. If you can accept this concept, then you will have no problems enjoying this game.

I really enjoy this game and while this game isn’t for the hardcore strategy gamer, it is definitely a great game to break out in a large group party setting especially since it doesn’t involve that much thinking and it is super easy to learn.

Thumbs up and highly recommended (Posted on 5/3/15)

got this game for christmas. Camel up is a betting game. you bet on who will be first for each leg of a race and who will be first and last overall. the camels are moved randomly. they stack. what more do you need to know. Its a funny chaotic game. Plays very well with larger groups of people. think party game. some people are tepid on it, so i was wary about it but ive brought it out to my last few games nights and it was a hit each time.
