Kal-toh is a Vulcan game of intense strategy that can be played solitarily or by multiple individuals. The object of kal-toh, as stated by Tuvok, "Is not about striving for balance but about finding the seeds of order even in the midst of profound chaos." A kal-toh set consists of a number of playing rods called t'an.

When described by Harry Kim to an amnesic Tuvok, he said "The object of the game was to turn this jumble of rods into a perfect sphere", and that each player takes turns to position pieces, the one managing to form the final intended shape winning. (VOY: "Riddles")

When Harry Kim referred to kal-toh as "Vulcan chess", Tuvok commented that, "Kal-toh is to chess as chess is to tic-tac-toe." (VOY: "Alter Ego")

A different game referred to as Vulcan chess was shown in TAS: "The Magicks of Megas-Tu".

In a holodeck simulation created by The Doctor that included numerous historical figures, the holograms of Socrates and T'Pau played kal-toh together. (VOY: "Darkling")

During a game played by Tuvok and Harry Kim, Seven of Nine took a turn for Harry and beat Tuvok in one move, claiming she used elementary spatial harmonics to do so. (VOY: "The Omega Directive")

Tuvok, Icheb and Harry Kim often had a match of kal-toh together. Icheb was quite talented with the game. (VOY: "Endgame")

In an alternate timeline, Captain Harry Kim kept a kal-toh game in his ready room aboard the USS Rhode Island. (VOY: "Endgame")
A completed game of kal-toh is in the shape of two nested icosidodecahedra connected by the centerpoints of their edges.
