I'll raise you...

I do tend to keep games that I have painted, but have sold my painted Earth Reborn, Last Night on Earth, and partially painted Incursion.
I'm currently painting my copy of Deathwatch Overkill that I have owned for over 5 years. I will never get rid of it, and have declared to myself that I'm not playing it again until it's fully painted.

I've been on the hunt for that game for so long. Both BGG and Ebay prices never seem to drop below $200.
I don’t think I’ve sold anything I regret now. I don’t mind shelf-toading stuff.
That being said, I did just sell off a couple of things due to a combination of not playing them in years nor likely to in the future and their current selling price. BSG + 2 expansions for $500 and a complete Arkham Horror 2nd edition set for $750 is hard to pass up. No regrets.

The most I've ever paid for a game was $130 for Kanban EV with the metal cars. It's gorgeous. I had just returned from Vegas with some nice winnings, so no regrets there either. Then, literally two days after that purchase (before it had even arrived), someone bought my copy of Agents of SMERSH for $120, so I basically broke even anyway. Now that Vegas money is again burning a hole in my pocket, and that damn Barnes is making me look at Too Many Bones again.
I'm still struggling with whether or not to contact the seeker on BGG. It seems like a no-brainer to let it go, but I also just know in my gut that I would regret it. Both Shellhead and Charlest reflected my thoughts exactly.

I'm not sure I would ever mess with the physical game since the Steam version exists and makes everything less fiddly.

This. My games have way to much shelf wear to ever seriously sell.
As an aside, send me a PM regarding Assassinorum, I might be interested.
