One of the original retroclones, Swords and Wizardry is a great choice for both new-comers as well as those who want something different. It has what I think is the best cover ever created. Simple choices in classes and races, and the single savings throw is nice. I don't get including both ascending and descending armor class; the multiple savings throws were tossed out, so why not just stick to ascending? While some will like all of the asides for alternative ways to play combat, etc. I think they start to get a bit distracting. I just like a game/rulesystem to present one "set way" and then let me house-rule if needed. The Core edition is a nice balance between the spartan Whitebox and the text-dense Complete.

Swords and Wizardry is old school at its best! While the game does take some turns and incorporate some of the better modern way of doing things it does so with a eye on what worked before and what makes a game truly old school.

Reading the Swords & Wizardry rulebook was a fantastic trip down memory lane. I can't wait to try it out with my gaming group!

A great set of rules that captures the old school flavor. I will be using this set for a campaign I'm currently developing. The only thing I found wonky is the single saving throw for everything. I think they should have tied that to ability score modifiers for different saving types. Overall a very professional and concise rules set.

Swords & Wizardry is OD&D made easy and accessible. It has everything you need to play in one book, from character creation to high level playing, from referre tips and guides to monsters and treasures. Also, it's easy to read, one afternoon is enough to read a book and get your first adventure ready. Character creation takes minutes, just like combat. There are also optional rules, which make it easier for younger audiences to get into the game.
There are of course some errors, but only minor, and the Referee is free to do with them what he likes. Still, I would be grateful, if there was a non-free version of the book in pdf format, which includes the Thief and Monk classes from the print edition - although it's not hard to create your own version of these classes, and there are some gamers, who already did it...

I think the look, rules and everything else is just as good as the original 0e. The ascending Ac was unnecessary but nothing bad.

S&W is a fantastic retro clone that is worth a way more than the DTrpg price tag:). The product recaptures the wonder of the original edition era from '74 - '79. I grew up with the AD&D material so it is nice to be able to get my hands on a glimpse of that game's beginnings. I will most likely get a print copy of this game. The producers of this prodcut really deserve the support.
