```One of these should help:

k={{1,1,2,2,3},{1,2,2,2,3},{2,3,3,3,3},{5,2,2,2,1},{6,1,1,1,1},{6,1,1,1,1}};
Map[Rest, Split[Sort@k, #1[[1]] == #2[[1]] &], {2}]

{{{1,2,2,3},{2,2,2,3}},{{3,3,3,3}},{{2,2,2,1}},{{1,1,1,1},{1,1,1,1}}}

(Sort is unnecessary if you're sure k is already sorted.)

or

Last@Reap@Scan[Sow[Rest@#,First@#]&,k]

{{{1,2,2,3},{2,2,2,3}},{{3,3,3,3}},{{2,2,2,1}},{{1,1,1,1},{1,1,1,1}}}

or

lst=Last@Reap[Scan[Sow[Rest@#,First@#]&,k],_,List]

{{1,{{1,2,2,3},{2,2,2,3}}},{2,{{3,3,3,3}}},{5,{{2,2,2,
1}}},{6,{{1,1,1,1},{1,1,1,1}}}}

Clear@g
Scan[(g[#[[1]]]=#[[2]])&,lst]
g/@Range@6

{{{1,2,2,3},{2,2,2,3}},{{3,3,3,3}},g[3],g[4],{{2,2,2,1}},{{1,1,1,1},{1,1,
1,1}}}

or

Clear@g
g[_] = {};
lst=Last@Reap[Scan[Sow[Rest@#, First@#] &, k], _, List];
Scan[(g[#[[1]]] = #[[2]]) &, lst]
g /@ Range@6

{{{1, 2, 2, 3}, {2, 2, 2, 3}}, {{3, 3, 3, 3}}, {}, {}, {{2, 2,
2, 1}}, {{1, 1, 1, 1}, {1, 1, 1, 1}}}

or:

Clear@g
g[_]={};
Scan[AppendTo[g@First@#,Rest@#]&,k];
g/@Range@6

{{{1,2,2,3},{2,2,2,3}},{{3,3,3,3}},{},{},{{2,2,2,1}},{{1,1,1,1},{1,1,1,1}}}
