I like it as it preserves some of Dave Arneson's early rules such as rerolling hit points every level, increasing damage as you gain levels, and a single XP chart (at least up until 7th level). 

Plus, it's extremely well written.

Of the three systems I could actually run these days, two are rooted in the 70s ;)
I've spent the better part of the day today going through piles of gaming shit stuff that just doesn't fit where it's supposed to. I have accumulated RPG systems and their supplements for so many years I literally have my gam...

Just started a #Whitehack game with my group. I really like the system, probably more than my players, but they'll realize its beauty soon. :)

I've got a copy of S&W on the way to me now, which I'm going to run for my daughter. Otherwise I've own the typical AD&D, Rules Cyclopedia stack which I often reference for game material and ideas.

I wish I had the time for more gaming!

Within the past year? Cypher System is the majority with a smattering of DCC, Savage Worlds, FFG Star Wars, AGE, BFRPG, and some indy stuff.

Hero System, Dungeon World, various D&D versions and derivatives, Call of Cthulhu, GURPS (on rare occasions), and many one-offs of any game that grabs my attention.

Far Away Land is the only recent RPG rules system that I was able to grok right away.

Peeking through it, I'm just happy they aren't resorting to the usual "Detroit as a wasteland" motif that every other piece of media seems to use. Can't afford to back right now but will definitely keep it in mind.
