The 1978 game is this one: [url]http://www.boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/5016/marston-moor [/url]

I want to buy one of these but haven't a clue what the pros and cons of each are. They look similar in some places, but quite different in others; but their ratings seem about the same. Is Cromwell's Victory an update of the Marston Moor system?

Any info would be appreciated

The games cover the same battle at approximately the same scale and scope, so naturally there will be similarities, but they are separate designs (although the designer of the later might well have been aware of the earlier).

I have both (actually, I accidentally ended up with two copies of Cromwell's Victory), but have played neither.
