Camel Up: Off Season is a board game for three to five players based in the same Saharan setting as the original family game, but this time focusing on a desert market rather than racing. Throughout the game, players bid on who gets to choose from the available markets first. Each market can carry between three and six different items - ranging from carpets and vases to dates and other fruit - which players will be able to select if they're able to successfully win the bidding phase.
Once the player who won the bid has taken their goods, the other players are then able to pick between the remaining markets. Players are then able to sell any good from one of the loaded camels, with each good providing a different benefit. This process is then repeated until the end of the game, with the player holding the most coins being named the winner.
