Hey all, this is a great game. Absolutely love it.

However, I do think it could be a bit more dramatic at times. Especially when a camel is in the space before the finish line, you know he's going to win if and when his dice comes out of the pyramid.

I was wondering what your thoughts were, or if you've tried, replacing one of the 3's on the dice with a 0? I think a zero on the dice would add a bit of that unpredictability factor, that could provide some drama I think the game could benefit from in some situations. Plus, one less 3 might extend the game by one leg or so, which I'm all for as well.

Thoughts?

Please give it a try and report back. I'm not sure when I'll play it again but I will try as well.

Camel Up is already one of the highest variance non-purely-deterministic games out there, which is part of the reason it often gets snubbed by highly competitive gamers. Making it even higher variance and also adding at least 15-30 minutes to the total playtime would almost certainly have a profoundly negative impact on the game. It's already one of if not the actual greatest party game of all time, I don't really think it needs to be "fixed."
