I trying to decide whether to get HON or SON. I really like the theme in SON, but so far it seems to be pretty dead. Some things show that:

– The fixed PDF rules still isn't available.

– The extra content (official or not) for SON is much smaller, much more that would be expected.

– The SON site on BGG is mostly empty, there is one review, and not even enough ratings to move it to a proper position in the ranking.

– The SON forums (both, on the DPG and BGG) seems dead. 2-3 posts per month tops on DPG.


Now, is it worth getting SON? Or am I better suited getting HON instead?

Aside from the theme, which mechanics makes SON better/worse than HON?

No idea about mechanics but I prefer the theme of SON.
