in camel up, up to eight players bet on five racing camels, trying to suss out which will place first and second in a quick race around a pyramid. 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!expedition teams are ready to try to secure the most promising sites in the digging field. each square on the game board contains valuable finds. each team would of course like to occupy the best sites, and then dig away in peace and quiet. players use their archaeologists and assistants, while the workers ensure that the digs are supported. the game is different each time, since the board consists of 7 large and 7 small board segments that are combined differently each time, leading to different dig configurations.
