Edgehill English Civil War Board Game

Edgehill is a free English Civil War boardgame available at Wargames Downloads.

This is an easy, introductory game on the first battle of the English Civil War, based on a system derived from the old SPI Thirty Years War system, modified with the introduction of a chit drawing leader activation procedure that makes the game different each time you play it and perfect for solitaire play. Easy to understand and fast playable (less than an hour), and full-color map (with the position of the different units printed on the map for an immediate set-up).

Contains:
11 x 17″ full color map (2 – 8.5 x 11″ parts)
113 full color counters.
Rules in English and Italian
