.... or are they too similar to each other?
I would think so, different rules, layouts , designers, I happen to have both I feel they are very different.
ST is a VERY good game. Problem with any Top 10 or Top 20 of pins is that on any given day depending on mood that Top 10 can change on a person by person basis. However, I can see ST up there, and it's definitely one of Stern's top games ever.....
Very much so. Both are very good games and in a small collection they could favor each other well since the rules are so different and the slight variation in layouts can help (both are still fan based layouts).
My only hesitation is that both games can play long once you get good at them. In a 2 pin collection it's good to have one deep/long playing game and then another game that is a quick game. If that isn't of concern to you then I say you should go for it.
