Ok, time for that data you've been keeping to pay off! If you're good at logging plays, and good at marking a game as "previously owned", then finding out what previously owned game of yours has the most plays is as easy as going to "My Geek->Profile", clicking on "Previously Owned" on the upper right, and sorting by "Your Plays".

Let us know what that game is, how many plays you have, and how you feel about no longer owning it.

I'm fine with not owning this. Oh, I like it enough, I give it 3 stars out of 5. It's just that everyone I know with whom I'd like to play it already owns it. It didn't hit with my family.

Once again, thanks to my crazy amount of data I track, I know that I traded it for "Space Alert" back in October 2010. Yeah... never played my copy of Space Alert. I've played Wyatt Earp 4 times since selling my copy. I bet I only played my copy about 2 or 3 times, though.

I played Zirkus Flohcati 68 times before I let it go, back in 2007. And while I'd still play it if asked - I haven't missed it. I'm not glad I dumped it - but it was the right choice.

I've actually owned this three times. The first time I bought this was because I had just found BGG and it was ranked in the top 200. I sounded like a great game, and was the first game I ever bought because of the 'geek. My daughters and I tried it and they seemed to like it, even though I didn't really care for it. But I kept playing, thinking (hoping?) I would enjoy it more with repeated plays. That never happened, and I traded it away.

For my second copy I found one NIS at a local thrift store, and traded that away for a copy of Dominion: Cornucopia.

For my third copy I found an almost complete copy at that same thrift store, and donated it to someone who had asked for it on the Thrifting for You in 2015! geek list.

30 recorded plays, but a lot more unrecorded.

When I first played Race, I rated it a 9. I enjoyed it a lot, and picked up the expansions as they were released.

Over time though I found my approach to the game had slipped into the same rut, looking out for particular cards, and then creating a strategy according to which cards came up first. I also had a couple of painful games of this that were hard work, being dull and repetitive, finally coming down to who got the right cards at the right time - the winner could have easily been called as soon as we'd all built our engines. This was a problem of the players more than the game, but it's funny how often that can leave a bad taste for something.

I'm glad it's gone from my collection, I don't miss it and I'd stopped enjoying it some time before I let it go. Losing the love for this game was also about my own tastes changing and my own need for something with more interaction (well, what I really mean is conflict), so I can understand why others enjoy it - not me though.

Most of these plays were SoloPlays.

A great game, but it got eclipsed by other worker placements.
Ultimately traded this for a copy of Memoir '44.

I now have Caverna, which is a better game that plays in about the same time, and scratches the same itch. I'm happy to have parted ways with my copy of Agricola, but don't regret our time together.

13 plays.

13 recorded plays.

My wife and I liked the game fine but it just needs more than 2 players to be really fun. Although there certainly was something special about throwing players into the volcano.

I traded it for Atlantis Rising right before Pompeii was reprinted so I have no complaints.

This is a very simple auction game with a big dose of randomness, aimed at children. It's an excellent children's game actually, a good introduction to auctions and a very basic way to teach them a bit about resource management.
My own children have moved on to more complex games, so there was no need to keep this game around. We gave our copy to friends who have younger children.

So, yes, I'm glad we "dumped" it. But if anyone reading this has a child around the age of 5-6 that you want to turn into a gamer, or just want to play a nice game with, I recommend to play Wild Vikings with him/her.

Ummm, well this is technically what I come up with following your criteria. Wow, 56 plays and I just got rid of it.

That must mean I'm not much of a pack rat at all!





whistle

Or it could mean that I add all versions owned to my collection and that while I may have gotten rid of SotM: First Edition, I first added SotM: Enhanced Edition. Just maybe.

Ahem, yes, so, following that I've got Roma with 29 plays...which I at some point had 2 copies of but got rid of one of...

And Railroad Tycoon with 12 plays...which I replaced with Railways of the World...
