You'll want both Castile and Aragon to rival each other. This way when they end up fighting each other you can swoop up and grab the European provinces. From there, it's the usual Ottoman start. Annex {{flag|Byzantium}}, {{flag|Athens}}, and the Anatolian Beyliks. Set your national focus to admin as you will need it. Reclaim any cores that you have except for your core in {{flag|Qara Qoyunlu}} because you need to save your manpower. {{flag|Genoa}} is almost always willing to give up their islands if you threaten them with war and {{flag|Venice}} will often give up their islands to a threat of war if they are embroiled in a war themselves. Build up your armies and navy to be ready for the first war with the {{flag|Mamluks}} around 1460.

After expanding eastwards through Anatolia, it is recommended to build a fleet of galleys and carrier ships and conquer the provinces required from Naples and Aragon, as if the player leaves it for late game it will be harder to achieve as they will be under the control of Spain through the Iberian wedding event.

After conquering the Levant and the northern [[Hejaz]] provinces look in the Arabian peninsula for a country which is now small but has lots of cores to vassalise, i.e. an empire that rose and fell. Spend the time that you have a truce with the Mamluks feeding land to your Arabian vassal.

If you have spare time during your truce you can clean up {{flag|Trebizond}}, {{flag|Aq Qoyunlu}} or maybe some of the Balkan nations. However, do note that this achievement still requires you to have ''all'' owned provinces in the Muslim group so you'll have to convert them later. You should also have reclaimed most of the Italian provinces around the Black Sea, Anatolia and Greece.
