Default Crusader Kings 2 - Grahamiam's Failures

So, Shabba gifted this to me last week and I need to try to get into it. However, I find the whole "EU" style interface confusing and obtuse I think if I could just learn to play, then the interface will just kind of fade away, like it did in the past for so me when trying to learn difficult games.

In an effort to "just play", I was looking around for some hints or short term goals to help, and I stumbled across a list that was apparently in one of the CK2 files for "achievements" that were planned but never rolled out. I think these goals could help me get into it, and may help others. I think if I can get the very easy and easy ones done, I'll probably know enough about the gameplay to truely start to enjoy it.

The list:
************** Very Easy (6/6) - 6 points
- 'The Marriage Game' - Get married (Start as an unmarried character and get married.)
- A Pope of My Own' - Set up an antipope (Set up an antipope.)
- 'All Three Popes' - Set up a second antipope (Set up the second antipope.)

- 'Until Death Do Us Part' - Have your spouse assassinated (Have your spouse assassinated.)
- 'Always Bet On Duke' - Start as a count, become a duke (Start as a Count and manage to become Duke.)
************** Easy (4/4) - 20 points
- 'Full House' - Your charcater gets five children (Get five children.)
- 'Crusader' - Fulfill a Crusade goal (Conquer the target province of a crusade.)
- 'Paragon of Virtue' - Fulfill the Paragon of Virtue ambition (Fulfill the Paragon of Virtue ambition.)
- 'United the Kingdoms' - Hold the kingdoms of England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland (Hold the kingdoms of England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland.)
************** Medium (4/4) - 50 points
- 'On English Neck a Norman Yoke' - Conquer England as William the Bastard (Start on September 15, 1066 as William the Bastard and conquer the Kingdom of England.)
- 'It's Good to be the King' - Start as a count, become a king (Start as a Count and manage to become King.)
- 'It's Better to be the Emperor' - Start as a count, become an emperor (Start as a Count and manage to become Emperor.)
- Survivor' - Play through the whole game, from 1066 to 1453 (Play through the whole game, from September 15, 1066 to January 1, 1453.)
************** Hard (4/4) - 75 points
- 'Hard Ruler' - Start in 1066 as Harald of Norway, become King of England (Start on September 15, 1066 as Harald of Norway and become King of England.)

Good thing too prolly, cause Paradox tried their own, non steam achievements on EU III and apparently that was bloody mess. In the end they simply disabled them.

If you manage to get two duchies and your heir still owns both duchies several years later, I think you're good enough to play this game.
