"Camel - The Game"
(c) 1992 R.J .Reynolds
- six dice, as described;
- 48 cards, with ranks as dice faces, eight each, illustrated with "Joe
Camel" double ended figures;
- Score pad
- rule sheet;
- packaged in box designed like oversized Camel cigarette pack.
Game is sort of a vague cross between the Hearts dice game and Liar's Dice.
Has appeared regularly and cheaply on Ebay for years. Current listings as
item # 737483083, 738486210, 738888133, 738919076, 738958050. The second
listing has the best illustrations:
Even with the full set, I don't bother with the cards or the rules, and
simply play a Hearts variation with the dice.
