    I thought of this myself with no strings attached. Try it like I did.

    1: Rename Tokugowa Attila ( the Hun ) and rename the Civilization The Huns.

    2:Start out the game and build a HUGE I mean HUGE! Stack of military units once you research horseback riding.

    3: Once you see enemy borders while exploring, attack the with your wild stack of hun ( ish if wanted to be added ) soldiers.

    4: Repeat 3 over until you need to travel by water.

    5: Colonize or explore the islands. ( Simular to step 3. )

    6: Fight like a true barbarian, give no mercy and catapult cities if neccesary.

    7: Once you reach the middle ages, try to research Monotheism, Feudalism, and Chivalry.

    8: Use your samurai to conquer the weak civs.

    9: After researching the required techs, research MT.( military tradition )

    10: Make a large stack of cavalry and pillage and plunder cities with them.

    11: Repeat 10 as many times as possible.

    12: Industrial Age. Research Nationalism, and medicine.

    13: Build and draft riflemen to protect your weak cities.

    14: Get to motorized transportation and build up a stack of tanks.

    15: Use your tanks to destroy or Capture the enemy Capitol.

    And 16: Start playing WWII style, Rip apart the enemy roads, luxuries, and Military Resources.

    Anybody wanna try my challenge?

    But seriously, what you have described is more or less the Alway War variant. This has been done many times, particularly in the Succession Game section.

    Wouldn't the Mongols be a better choice to represent the Huns?

    True, but renaming Japan is what I do and others who dont have PTW. You see, I dont have play the world, but only vanilla. So Japan is what the people that only have vanilla or vanilla and conquests would do is my idea.

    I personally find that trying to go to war with EVERYONE ends you with a stack of tanks next to your capitol and the enemy demanding enough tribute to make the City of Gold jealous.

    I personally find going to war with everyone exhilarating.

    And satisfying when you win.
