I thumbed it just for the sheer recordkeeping (having tried it, I know how easy it is to screw up and how much time it takes).

Would definitely like to see some personal thoughts with it.

Several things, but off the top of my head: "P" could've traded up her iron ship to the luxury yacht for an additional 14 points at the end, but didn't. Instead, she used the shipping line for 5 francs.

There was very little outright buying from the building proposals or available ships -- more here would've likely helped us all. Instead, we were focused on maximizing our "goods" actions and living with low franc inventories.

Interestingly, "B" was winning at the half, "G" at three-quarters, then "R" wins. (Granted, these scores considered loans as -7 each.) "R" was the only one not to take a loan, and "R" almost always had more than enough food at the end of each round from ships alone. This freed him up to focus on ship-building in rounds 14, 18, and 20.

"G" visited the local court three times. I think that sapped my momentum and was the biggest reason why I fell behind at the end. Also, after the tavern was built, I inadvertently converted all my grain to bread instead of holding some back for franc conversion.

"R" made good and quick use of the brick manufacturer for 28 francs. The special buildings really can make a difference, but to do so, they must be engaged.

And everyone missed building the dock! That was 12 to 24 additional points overlooked.

I'd love to hear any other thoughts.

Le Havre is really great with 4 players. We'll go again, I'm sure.
