The game is based on We the People, Mark Herman's ingenious game on a later rebellion. As the organization of armies and states was often desultory, the cards do not provide a wide range of choices (as in Paths of Glory). The players in Unhappy King Charles! must make do with what they have. The three decks of cards-Red (1642-1643), Blue (1644) and Black (1645)- have been developed to give the correct feel for the early, middle and late war, based on storyboarding techniques. As befits a Civil War, there is treachery, bravery and stupidity in the events on the cards.

A solitaire game that tells the story of the English Civil Wars through key events and decision points. You attempt to stop the advance of four armies bent on destroying Parliament and Puritanism, whom you represent; simply holding on to London is not enough.

This game uses a point-to point system for movement. The counters represent infantry and cavalry regiments of resp. 1000 foot and 700 horse. The leader counters represent leaders of both factions, each leader has its own unique ratings for seniority, army handling, movement and tactical skills.

Not this game, actually, but if you read the last line of the game description, you'll see there's a companion volume called:

Once Upon a Time in the West Country

which are very enjoyable skirmish level miniatures rules for gaming in the ECW.

There are other ECW miniatures rules, such as
1644,
Cavaliers and Roundheads,
Cavalier & Roundhead,
Warhammer English Civil War,
Sword and Pistol, and others I can't think of right now. (I'm sure I used to have one called "Muskets", but it's not listed.)

I suppose I should list one of those first, but to my mind, the best of the bunch is Once Upon a Time in the West Country. But I'm partial to skirmish-level games.

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).

Marston Moor is the seventh entry in our introductory English Civil War tactical series. The rulebook integrates all the modifications and additional rules from the previous entries.
The Battle of Marston Moor was fought on 2 July 1644, during the First English Civil War of 1642–1646. The combined forces of the Scottish Covenanters under the Earl of Leven and the Parliamentarians under Lord Fairfax and the Earl of Manchester defeated the Royalists commanded by Prince Rupert of the Rhine and the Marquess of Newcastle.

Another TCS game and the only game on this geeklist to feature the name of Cromwell's boss, Sir Thomas Fairfax, the man who moulded the New Model into an efficient, disciplined fighting force. Fairfax's personal integrity did much to establish the high code of conduct for which the New Model became famous. Fairfax commanded the army at the decisive battle of Naseby in June 1645 and a year later the Royalist headquarters in Oxford surrendered to Fairfax, ending the First English Civil War. Under Fairfax's leadership, the New Model Army had not lost a single battle, siege or storm!

Twin of Edgehill, this one is a game on the last battle of the English Civil War fought by King Charles I before his capture and beheading. It shares with his twin brother the same gaming system and the same astonishing graphics for the map and counters art and it makes for another fast and challenging head to head game, with two armies of almost the same capabilities and strengths, that is very fun to play also solitaire in less than an hour.
