New Red Box Owner

Don't get your OSR panties in a bunch.  Armed with a 33% coupon at Borders I bought *gasp* the new Red Box.  I would put a picture up, but everyone knows what it looks like.  It looks like the old red box, but its not.  You maybe asking yourself, why?  Why would I waste money on this instead of a kickass OSR module?  Or you may have already clicked away.  Anyways, I have my reasons.

1. I have been looking at that damn box on the shelf for months.  Being a bit compulsive in buying gaming stuff I think I did real good with resisting.

2. Recently I started playing S&W with my wife.  She has a knack for questioning things we gamers sometimes take for granted.  So, I wanted her to try the 4th edition red box vs. S&W.  Sorta like a blind taste test, except she won't be blindfolded.  There is a joke in there, but I will leave it alone at risk of being smacked later.

I'm curious to see which one she will prefer.  To see which game is more beginner friendly.  It should be interesting.
