Swords and Wizardry Light provides fast play for new players. However, it also has a lot of nostalgia for the grizzled rpg veterans. The game can be played with only a few minutes of setup. Players simply need pen, paper, two types of dice, and two foldable cards. It is easy to understand the mechanics and has a simple approach. This will have newbies playing without the confusion or frustration of a long character creation session.
