At what level of complexity will this game be? On the BGG scale of 1-5, where will it fall?

Will this approach or even exceed the complexity of GMT's 'Here I Stand' (3.9)? Or will it be nearer the more-manageable 'Europe in Agony' (2.9)?

I have played Here I Stand and a playtest version of Unhappy King Charles. I find UKC much simpler, for a start it's only 2 players and political events are mostly handled through cards. The endless special cases which make HIS so difficult are not present here.

GMT has its own complexity scale, on which HIS is a 6 and Twilight Struggle a 4. I imagine UKC is a 5...

More complex than WE THE PEOPLE but less than FOR THE PEOPLE.

Perhaps WILDERNESS WAR Level?

There are less special subsets of rules than in HERE I STAND.

Wow. Only a difference of 2 between TS and HIS?!? I guess this only makes sense, if 1=Snakes & Ladders and 10=World in Flames deluxe. Because those two games are miles apart in terms of complexity, I'd say.

I'd say UKC is somewhat closer to HIS's level of complexity than that of TS.
