One of Uwe Rosenburg’s classic games is finally coming back into print courtesy of Lookout Games and Mayfair, and that game is Le Havre. The game itself plays very simply in that on your turn you have two actions you can take, grab a stack of goods being offered, or activate one of the many buildings on the board. The buildings will allow you to sell goods, upgrade goods, and even use the money you gained to build new buildings or ships. After seven turns the round is over, your cattle and grain will increase based on how much you have, and then you have to feed your people. After a set number of rounds the game is over and you get one final action to maximize your money, and whoever has the most is the winner.
This game is highly rated on BGG and has also been long out of print, with copies on the second hand market getting as high as $160. Luckily with this reprint the price to acquire this game will come down to something more reasonable, so look for it on store shelves in the new year.
