Review: Camel Up

Betting is fun, but sometimes that whole losing money thing can be a real drag. What if you could bet on races and not have to worry about that? And what if those races involved camels? And what if there was a cardboard pyramid? Well, at that point, you’re probably talking about Camel Up (or is it Camel Cup?). Check out our video review to see if this is one you should grab for your family.

  • Fun, light mechanics that can be picked up quickly
  • Really cool components
  • All the fun of gambling without the heart-shattering side effects


  • Unpredictability means strategies easily backfire
  • Higher numbers of players lead to fewer turns per round
  • Not very different from play to play
