A light game from VPG, this is playable in about 90 minutes. It features a combat system reminiscent of A House Divided, but also includes a path to political victory.

There are three sets of rules (Bronze, Silver, Gold) that let you incorporate more advanced topics. The overall rules length is very short, coming in at 4 pages for the Bronze rules.

As written, Pompey will have a very difficult go of it, but some variants will help.

A relatively light block game from Columbia, this features triple use cards (move, levy and event). Folks coming from Hammer of the Scots, and even new players who aren't normally wargamers, should be able to pick it up easily.

The simplicity and short playing time of this game seems to have attracted some eurogamers, too, which I think has contributed to its popularity.

From Strategy & Tactics Magazine #157. This is part of the Ancient War Series, the others are Trajan, Caesar in Gallia and Germania.

Definitely the most complex of the Caesar vs Pompey games, with its 35 page rulebook when you include the advanced rules.

One of the interesting quirks of this game (and the series) is the use of Ptolemaic maps.

A grand strategic game on the Roman Empire that covers several hundred years of Roman historical conflicts.

Scenario #4 is specifically dedicated to Caesar vs Pompey.

Part of the Great Battles of History series (SPQR, etc), this is a detailed tactical wargame.

It features the battle of Pharsalus, Dyrrhachium-Lesnika, Thapsus, Ruspina, and Munda.

A weuro from Z-Man, this is actually a 3-player game featuring Caesar, Pompey and Crassus.

The game features 3 paths to victory - military, political or competence (skill).

Honorable mention for an unpublished card-driven game by John Firer. Although its focus is on the conflict after Caesar's assassination, there appears to be a "Rubicon" scenario as well.

From Ludifolie, this covers the Roman civil wars from 49-29 BC.

Marnaudo did a nice review:
