An adventurous children's race game, with a tactical element and a variable game board. Good fun for adults too.

Each trader has four camels, that they attempt to get through the desert to the market at Marrakesh. The market in Marrakesh has a lot of valuable items waiting and these provide the victory points for finding out the winner. Movement is controlled by drawing tiles from a bag. Tiles usually allow you to move your camel, but may have other effects such as Sandstorms, which change the board layout. Camels that arrive earlier at the market will be able to pick up the most valuable items. However, if you concentrate all your efforts to get one camel to market, you are likely to lose your back-markers to the sandstorms.
