Strategy[edit | edit source]

Strategy The below is one of many player suggested strategies for Hawai'i. Bear in mind, due to the dynamic nature of the game, it may unfold differently for other players.

Hawaii does not exist in 1444, but given that most of the islands that can form it start at even footing, assembly of an army and uniting it shouldn’t take too long. Afterward, they have a good position to start colonization of the pacific and North America. Places like Australia shouldn’t pose much of a threat with worse tech, and many islands can be settled easily. Attention should head eastwards early on to modernize in preparation for European invasion. Luckily, Europe should arrive a bit later than in Africa and whatnot. Consider making allies with Japan and China to help in the wars. You could, with colonization of good land and modernization, eclipse European nations after a while. However, given your unique position, institutions could prove difficult.
