Accessibility and a challenge!

Hey, folks.

I marvel at how easy it is to get people playing AW if they are used to more trad games or aren't regular gamers at all.  Here's my latest story about getting someone to want to jump into AW and I offer a challenge to tell me your best story for getting new gamers playing AW!

I e-mailed a co-worker a link to the "Back Page Pitch" from AW.com.  I wrote "Trust me, just read this, then ask me about it."  Minutes later, she was at my desk saying "What is this?  I don't even know what it is, but it's frickin' cool!"  I explained that it was a role-playing game and she affirmed that she'd never play D&D on general principles, but that colourful pitch had her hooked.  I'm putting an intro game together for her and some other co-workers.

Can you raise me a better story?
