Friday Question

My long time gaming friend +Rob Conley wrote a post of how he would explain the OSR to a novice.  His explanation is accurate, but I think too long.  If I was a novice and someone was explaining something to me I would have glazed over.

So my challenge to you dear questioneers, how would YOU explain the OSR to someone?

I think mine would be and this is off the top of my head.

OSR is old D&D.  When it was more about being inventive than knowing the rules.  Just grab some dice, if you don't have any I've got a mound of them.  You make up a character and we start playing.  If you want to do something let me know and we'll figure it out.  The only three rules I have in my game are, 1. Don't be a dick.  2. Have fun.  3.  The last coke in the fridge is always mine.

So how would you bring someone over to the OSR side?
