Le Harve Board Game
Drake says: "Le Havre is an economic and "worker placement" game in which players must distribute goods and make good use of buildings and clever combinations in order to amass the largest fortune."

John says: "Le Havre is very complex and engrossing. You'll love this advanced game of economics with its many unique cards which can even be played solo."


Uwe Rosenberg


Le Havre is a French city, containing France’s second largest harbour (after Marseilles). The city is notable not only for its size but also for its unusual name. The Dutch word "Havre", meaning "Harbour", was adopted into French in the 12th century, but these days it is considered archaic and "le port" is used instead.

The principle of the game is simple. A player’s turn consists of two parts: First, distribute newly supplied goods onto the Offer spaces; then take an action. As an action, players may choose either to take all goods of one type from an Offer space or to use one of the available buildings. Building actions allow players to upgrade goods, sell them or use them to build their own buildings and ships. Buildings are both an investment opportunity and a revenue stream, as players must pay an entry fee to use buildings that they do not own. Ships, on the other hand, are primarily used to provide the food that is needed to feed the workers.

After every seven turns, the round ends: a Harvest increases players’ grain and cattle reserves, and players must feed their workers. After a fixed number of rounds, each player may carry out one final action, and then the game ends. Players add the value of their buildings and ships to their cash reserves. The player who has amassed the largest fortune is the winner.
