You did the right thing. I had to make the same decision about Magic about three years ago.

My decision was easier because I did it early in the A&A minis release and that I thought the game was too much of a dice fest (even more so than the A&A strategic level games). Then I realized how few boardgames I'd be able to buy if I got a couple cases of the minis, and they were traded away.
Still, I understand your self-doubt. But now, more boardgames!!!

As much as I like that particular game, I can't argue with your action. I have way too many games of a collectible nature that don't get played, and the money I have spent is phenomenal. I had to make some cuts. I don't know whether to be happy or sad that most of that stuff is in storage now. I need to sell it to (a) get rid of it and (b) make what cash back on it I can. At least I'm not buying stuff that doesn't hit the table from time to time.

Personally, unless I just didn't have the storage space, I would have kept it and just stopped collecting the expansions. You might not have anyone to play it with now, but things change.

It would be different if you weren't so crazy about the game. I would also change my answer if I had a high degree of confidence that I could just buy the game again when needed, but this is collectable and even if it wasn't, Hasbro has proven to be fickle in the past.

P.S. I am a Pack Rat in other ways, too.

I have a problem similar to your's, but it's more along the lines of any game in general, but I keep buying games even though I haven't played half the games I own.

Although, Pirates of the Spanish Main took over my wallet for a while.

I haven bought any lately though. Rent is kinda getting in my way.
