A game of Camel Up during play.

Camel Up is a board game for two to eight players.[2] It was designed by Steffen Bogen and illustrated by Dennis Lohausen, and published in 2014 by Pegasus Spiele.[2] Players place bets on a camel race in the desert; the player who wins the most money is the winner of the game. Camel Up won the Spiel des Jahres in 2014.[2]

In 2015, an expansion called Camel Up: Supercup was released, allowing the game to be played with up to 10 players.[3] A mobile app was also released in 2015 for Android and iOS devices.[4]

At Essen 2018, a German board game convention, Eggertspiele released a second edition[5] of the game with new artwork by Dennis Lohausen and Chris Quilliams, and revised game rules.[6]

In 2021, a spinoff called Camel Up: Off Season was released.[7]
