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

Patna starts off in a rather isolated part of India, though past it's immediate borders are powerful countries that need to be taken into consideration as you plan your conquests.

Starting diplomacy

Patna begins the game with the generic Garjarti ideas, which are mostly focused on nation building, rather than the military when compared to it's neighbors. The goal early on should be to form another country such as Nagpur or Orissa as early as possible. Orissa is preferable as it can be formed the earliest. An alliance with Bahmanis or Bengal is essential to warding off the potential threat of the other, and great care should be taken to keeping the alliance until the player can contest other major nations in India.

Early game

The player should build up to force limit and conquer the other tribes as soon as possible. This should allow you to attack Orissa, who shouldn't be allied to any other strong countries. If Bengal and Orissa go to war before you do, intervene and try to ensure Orissa won't exist after the war, as to ensure you can form Orissa as soon as possible.

Later on

Once the player has consolidated the the Bengal region, has the choices of conquering west across india to get to the manpower rich hindustan region, going south to consolidate Indian trade, depending on what the player needs at the moment.
