Mayfair & Lookout Games Bringing Back Le Havre
There have been many great games over the years that have, for one reason or another, gone out of print. For many games, that could spell the end, with later generations of gamers never having a chance to give them a play, due to their scarcity. However, some games get another life as a company picks it back up for production. Such is the case with Uwe Rosenberg’s Le Havre, as Mayfair and Lookout Games will be bringing it back next year.
In the game, players take on the role of a shipping tycoon, looking to buy, sell, and trade goods at the docks. But it’s more than just picking up some lumber or clay, you’ll also be building and buying warehouses and eventually ships of your own. All of those goods aren’t going to move themselves around, either. You’ll need to hire workers. But it’s more than just getting them to work for you, you need to make sure they’re well-fed. The workers will also have to go and deal with their own harvests from time to time. There’s a lot of moving parts to keep track of, with the one doing the best job coming out ahead of the others.
