Suppose you could only retain all of the games in your collection that begin with the same letter of the alphabet, or begin with a numeral.

Which letter would you choose to keep? (Or, would you choose to keep all of your games that begin with a numeral?)

Below, I've listed the first (alphabetically or numerically) game from my collection for each letter of the alphabet, and for numerals. (If I don't own any games that begin with a particular letter, I've chosen the first--alphabetically--game in the BGG database with that letter.)

Weigh in (either by thumbing an entry, or adding the games you own that begin with that letter) with which letter of your collection you'd keep.

I've played neither of my games in this category, 1856 or 1960: The Making of the President, so it'd be a light loss.
