    It's also easier to just make it a consistent 6 buildings, even if they all aren't used in all player counts rather than make an unnecessary exception. It's easier for me to remember 6 buildings for setup than having to check how many to start with for each player count.

    Or you could just put the whole deck of special buildings out. If you're following the rules about when to draw them you'll only use the first 6 (5 in a 2 player game) so it doesn't really matter how many are sitting there.

    Thanks for all your comments. Thought it might be something to do with the marketplace. Just wanted to make sure I want missing anything.

    Decent is a good word. The short game is fun but the long game is brilliant.

    Yeah I hear that. I was playing with my girl so wanted to break her in gently.... :p

    I actually modded the "short game" to be a lot more like the "real thing", so all the buildings (which is only 2 more), specials back in, less goods than the short, etc and 10 rounds. I do find 14 a little long, not sure I will go back to it I find this 10 round game just about perfect now

    In my experience with 2p Le Havre, the short game is shorter than the full game, but it isn't that much shorter. Here are two reasons that I don't see mentioned in this thread:

    1. Setup/teardown/scoring
    They're about the same for each game length. In the short game you have no Special Buildings, but you must count out additional starting resources for each player. Scoring is clearly going to be about the same for each game length. Optimistically, about 30 minutes will get the game set up, scored, and put away. That's 30 minutes that is not proportionately decreased along with the number of rounds.

    2. (2p) Le Havre tends to speed up as the game goes on
    In the early- to midgame, players are deciding which buildings to build/buy, and new actions are available nearly every other turn. After this "building phase", the available options are mostly settled (when I play, this happens by round 10 at the latest). The remaining decisions are mostly tactical rather than strategic (though no less interesting), and so the last 4 or 5 rounds go much faster than the others. The short game cuts off some of the fastest rounds.

    For these reasons, I don't play Le Havre's short game anymore. If don't have time for a full game of Le Havre, then I just don't have time for Le Havre.

    The short game is really only for those that are learning the rules.

  • by John Shepherd

    There's a thing going around one of the instagram retro-video-gaming groups at the moment, snappily titled "spell your name in games". Basically, spell your name using a photograph of some of your favourite games, where the first letter of each title is a letter from your name.

    Inevitable outcome when I'm looking for blog post inspiration:



    My Village
    Russian Railroads

    Snowdonia
    Le Havre (BGG files it under "H", so I am too!)
    Euphoria (not strictly a favourite, but the only "E" I own!)
    Pandemic

    :D

    Anybody else up to the challenge?

    I think wood will still exist in the future. And it just might be radioactive. So I like it.

    My wife and I just began our board game saga and I have heard so many good things about this game, but I am late to the party as even the reprints are sold out. We can't shell out collectors pricing for this game, but would love to add it. Any knowledge on another reprint or anniversary edition etc?

    I have gone to several game stores and the game buyer at each said they get inquiries on Le Havre every week from different people. I hope this game continues to be printed!

    Not sure about international shipping, but there seem to be loads of copies here in the UK. My usual haunts of boardgameguru and chaos cards have stock.

    If you don't mind buying used, there are some reasonably priced copies in the Geek Market:

    One option to consider: the iPad app version works very well. And it's a whole lot cheaper than a physical copy.
