I recently introduced a group of gamers to the concept, none of which had played 2e before. They had played 4e, 3e and 1e, so they had very different ideas on how to do things.
We started playing, and the numbers they rattled off made absolutely no sense to me, I had to have them break it down. Rather than subtracting the AC from the THAC0 and comparing the score to the roll, they were taking the roll, adding the AC and any modifiers, and comparing the total to the THAC0. It took awhile for me to be able to wrap my head around it, but it does work, I suppose.
Which makes me wonder if there are other ways to do it...
