What is Le Havre about?

Le Havre is a French city containing France’s second largest harbour. This game has a simple principle. The turn of a player consists of two steps: Distribution of newly supplied goods onto the Offer spaces; then action. As an action, players have the choice either to take all goods of a type from an Offer space or to use one of the buildings. Players can upgrade goods, sell them or build their own buildings and ships using building actions. A building is both an investment opportunity and a revenue stream as players must pay an entry fee to use a building they do not own. On the other hand, ships are primarily used for providing workers with food. 

A Harvest increases players’ grain and cattle reserves, and they must feed their workers every seven turns. Each player may perform one final action after a fixed number of rounds. Players add the value of their buildings and ships to their cash reserves. Whoever has the largest fortune wins.
