In Camel Up: Off Season, each player has their own caravan of four camels that can carry goods, with the camels being able to carry 3, 4, 5, and 6 goods. Goods come in four types (carpets, vases, dates, and fruit) and these goods will be available at the different markets in play.
Players bid to see who selects goods first from a market, with the bidding rules being set by the back of the topmost goods card in the deck. Whoever wins the bid pays their money to the bank, while everyone else keeps their coins. (Coins are victory points though, so spend them wisely)
The winning bidder chooses a market. They may use the power of that market, as each market has a unique power. Once they take all of the goods from that market, and flip them face up, they load the goods onto their camels. A camel can hold goods of only one type, so you must continue placing that good on the same camel. Each camel has a goods limit, however, and if you exceed that limit, then you must throw away all of that type of good!
Replace the racing and betting of the original Camel Up with the tactical (but also risky) bidding of Camel Up: Off season.
For 3-5 players.
