Time to order some games!

It's well worth shopping around mind, Shop4World always seems to have decent prices (though delivery isn't free on orders under £44ish). I'm after Concept and it's £5 cheaper there than on Amazon anyway.

I did intend to use the voucher to finally pick up Camel (C)up, which was a shade over £20 when the promotion started. I don't know if they were being crafty or if it was pure coincidence, but it shortly after slipped in price to just under £20 so I couldn't use it without buying something else.

I still bought it anyway and I'm glad I did so. Yes, it is almost completely random, but it's still a great party game, and the stacking mechanic makes it quite funny how in an instant the camel you've backed can go from being well in front to leaving you completely screwed, or vice versa.

Not heard of that one before, sounds fun, although reading your description it sounded a bit like buckaroo!!

It is great, as long as you aren't playing with proper hardcore gamers who will most likely hate the randomness. I've done a poor job of describing it though as it isn't anything like Buckaroo!

It's a good laugh. I'm often terrible at it, but I'm happy with the knowledge it's largely a guessing game and I know that if I lose I'm generally unlucky rather than playing it badly

There's also £10 of orders over £50 at Amazon today only, should make some expensive board games a little cheaper.
