EDGEHILL 1642

is a simulation of the first


important battle of the English Civil War. The Royalist
army led by King Charles I and Prince Rupert was
marching on London when it was blocked by a Parliament
army under the Earl of Essex near the village of Edgehill.
Turns: 10 turns, each turn is a half hour of real time.
Set Up: The Royal army sets up first within 6 hexes of
Radway. Parliament units set up with 11 hexes of Kineton.
Units: Cavalry, infantry (muskeeters & pikemen), leaders
(King Charles and the Earl of Essex) and baggage trains.
Top number = strength; bottom number = movement
allowance. (Each strength point = about 100 men/horses.)
Command: Most units belong to a brigade with a leader
name in common. The A unit is the command unit. If a
non-command unit is adjacent to its command unit, it is in
command; otherwise it is out-of-command.
Out-of-Command: Out-of-command units cannot move
into the zone of control of an enemy unit.
Stacking: Only 3 units are allowed to occupy a hex at one
time. If there are 3 units in a hex, a leader unit (King
Charles or the Earl of Essex) must be in the hex.
