    Okay, I just got the game and tried a single player, long version, to get accustomed to everything and had some questions.

    1. Game setup: The rules say that you only use the standard buildings that have the associated check mark depending on short/long version of the game. But it also says standard buildings that have "Start" in the box are used as starting buildings. So this question may be pretty dumb...There are three standard buildings (Black Market, Marketplace, and Sawmill) that have "Start" in the box for single player, but one of them has a check mark as well. Do all three of those cards get placed with the regular starting buildings at the beginning of the game (totaling 6 starting buildings)? Or does the one standard building with a check mark and start get placed in the three proposal stacks?

    Buildings marked "start" are placed with the regular start buildings during the short game only.


    The black market is only a start building when there is only one player. Right?
    The sawmill only with 1, 4 and 5 players?
    The marketplace only with 1 or 2 players?

    And all of this only with a short game?

    What I would say in response, after reading every else's posts and with my own experience as well, is keep your eye on this statement and no other.

    Some of my most fun 2-p games have been buying up the town (and getting the Bank bonus) while my opponent buys more ships and outships me, and seeing who ekes out the win. Sometimes she wins, sometimes I do, and it is almost always close.

    One of the best of these saw me losing 295-289. My opponent produced 10 steel (low to some of you experts, but impressive to me) and got both luxury liners AND the Church - and I still almost pulled off a win.

    So I think the "wildly different ways" is still valid. But then I've played only about 30 times with other people (I love this thing solo) and perhaps I am still on the honeymoon.

    amazing review! drilling to the true core of the game.

    i can fully recommend to play LeHavre as online game too.
    the app is so well done and the asynchronous play fits perfectly.
    i love to really think deep on every move without getting on the nerves of the other players. opens up new dimensions for playing this great game.

    thumbs up for Codito! done with love. even the background music is a perfect fit :)

    Thanks, Michael. For those who might not have found the game on iOS yet, here's the link: (current price $4.99/4,49 €)

    Le Havre (The Harbor) on the App Store

    Happy gaming!

    The "A Sample First Round" section of the Buildings Overview describes a first round in a 3 player game playing the full version of the game.

    Already on reds first turn after choosing to take the Francs from the Franc Offer space it is explained that he could take an additional action to buy the Marketplace for 6 Francs.

    I only thought the Marketplace was a start building in the short version of the game in a solo or 2 player game.

    What am I missing?

    The Marketplace is labelled number 1 and will therefore be at the top of one of the building stacks. The top building of each stack may either be built or bought. I believe that is what is happening in what you described, i.e. the Marketplace is bought from the top of one of the building stacks.

    Buying a building (which includes those in the town and on the top of each building stack) is not another action.

    Taking the francs and buying the marketplace is a very common first turn action in Le Havre.

    what those 2 guys said. start buildings are "in town" the others are in 3 stacks, shuffled but then ordered numerically per stack and you can always buy any building thats not covered by another as long as you can afford it, even multiple on the same turn.

    Thanks for the clarification guys. For some reason I thought that only buildings owned by the town were available for purchase and that the top buildings in the tree piles were only available to build (and not for purchase).

    It all makes sense now. :)

    There's going to be a reprint correct? I don't want to pay the Amazon listed price for a copy.

    They are my two favorite worker placement type games. So I'd say you'll be delighted either way. Le Havre goes resource bananas, while the fun thing about Caylus is that you can monopolize certain resources.

    when zev ran the show it was great, but since they were taken over it's been downhill ever since. not only that, but when contacting z-man customer service you may get different answers depending on who you talk to.

    Not to rag on Z-man, but yeah, their entire customer service operation has really tanked basically from the day they sold to Filosofia or whoever. I've sent them multiple emails about stuff, including joining their group of game reps, and never got a single reply.

    If there's a game I want that they print, I'll still buy it, but they sure don't get a good rap anymore in my book.

    Over the last year, I've bought Le Havre, Ora & Labora and Caylus to try to get that Agricola feel.

    I think Le Havre delivers the most satisfying game play.

    The half dozen games of Ora & Labora that I've played feel long and drawn out.

    Caylus, like another post mentioned, is a bit abstract. It's also very unforgiving. I just sold my copy of Caylus.

    But since some of the mechanics of Caylus are pretty interesting, I just bought Belfort to fill that gap. Belfort feels a lot like Caylus but blended with other game mechanics. It's a blast to play.

    Belfort is definitely on my list. Just got Eminent Domain, I love the TMG game feel so far.

    Just to confirm: ZMAN games is the correct source to contact regarding an inquiry as to whether it will be reprinted or not? What email has everyone been using?

    If enough of us email them then maybe we can get a response! I would also like to know whether this is going to be reprinted or not.

    Lookout Games handled the previous reprint, so you might be better off contacting them.
