Strategy[edit | edit source]

Strategy The below is one of many player suggested strategies for Vanua Levu. Bear in mind, due to the dynamic nature of the game, it may unfold differently for other players.
Main article: Viti#Strategy

Vanua Levu starts as one of the Fijian minors, and has more development than Lau but less than Viti Levu. Forming Viti as soon as possible is a priority to secure the Fijian islands and set up for further expansion in Polynesia and beyond. Therefore, the strategies for Viti are most relevant.

The three Fijian minors always start with one of the three rivalled by the other two, which will typically ally with one another. Rival allocation is random; if starting as Vanua Levu and rivalled by the two neighbours it will be very difficult to unite Viti (without saving up cash and developing for several decades at least), and is probably worth restarting. It may just be possible to spend years developing the player's province and saving up to build a dominant navy (replace all ships with galleons) to secure naval dominance over Fiji's solitary sea tile; this would enable the player to build up a large enough army to overpower its neighbours one at a time in a war. The other plausible alternative would be to form an alliance with Flag of Tainui Tainui and invade Flag of Ngapuhi Ngapuhi before expanding in Fiji; however this would be extremely difficult and it would be a nightmare trying to keep the rebellious vassal under control (every province outside Fiji is beyond Vanua Levu's coring range).
