A kotra board.

Kotra is a Cardassian board game. The game is usually played with bold tactical moves rather than defensive ones.

In 2346, Skrain Dukat had a kotra board in his quarters on Terok Nor. (DS9 episode: "Wrongs Darker Than Death or Night")

Pythas Lok liked to play kotra. (DS9 novel: A Stitch in Time)

In 2373, Elim Garak played a game with Nog while aboard a runabout on its way to Empok Nor. Garak found Nog's defensive moves to be tiresome and anathema to the game's true nature. Garak later found a kotra board in Empok Nor's office and compared it to the situation between himself and Miles O'Brien after he was exposed to a psychotropic drug. (DS9 episode: "Empok Nor")

Akellen Macet was known to be a master kotra player. (DS9 novel: Cathedral)

In 2376, Garak compared the political situation on Cardassia after the Dominion War to being like a game of kotra. (DS9 novel: Cardassia: The Lotus Flower)
