Before crossing the desert, camels are gathered in the oasis corrals. Players add them covered on stacks, and announce which good they carry. Of course they can lie... and maybe get caught ! In order to win them, players should then guess how many they are, by playing a bet card. The gained camels loaded with goods are added to your Caravan, when you own 3 of the same colour you win the game ! The only way to gain camel cards is to use your bidding cards to guess the number of camels in the card stacks. A second level introduces "special" cards - Spies, Thugs, Merchant and Sandwind - which will allow you to build elaborated strategies to gain camels, and gives a true tactical dimension to the game.
