Kef Tanar was a strategy board- or table-top game developed and played by the Tiste Andii.
It used carved wooden figures to represent armies, headed by king figures, who were notable personages among the Tiste. The game took its inspiration from the succession wars among the Tiste peoples. Tiles were used to expand a world that was the battlefield, and knuckles (dice) to determine various randomized events. The tiles represented aspects of Dark, Shadow, and Light, with over fifty tiles comprising Kharkanas, the First City of Dark.
