Is Kal-toh holographic? It looks "real", until someone wins; and it sort of morphs. - 07:01, 21 April 2006 (UTC)

is the trivia section right? i thought there was no "definite sollution"?(or am i mixing that up with another vulcan game...)

Logic? Edit

I fail to see the logic in this game, how is there ANY sort of logic in putting sticks in there?

Its an exercise. How is there any logic in moving heavy weights around? None, until you're faced with a dire situation, where the skills/talents you've developed through practice have rewarded you with the physical/mental strength required to overcome an adversity.

I have a feeling it was a troll question to begin with. --OuroborosCobra talk 03:04, 20 November 2007 (UTC)
Well, a good deal of logical thinking may be required to figure out where best to put the sticks, and where to put them in such a manner that further moves become possible. The question seems to me a bit like: I fail to see the logic in a Rubik's Cube. How is there any sort of logic in rotating around colored pieces?--Skon 12:54, 20 November 2007 (UTC)

The game is a test of a person's ability to think through Differential Equations. The initial conditions of each game obviously determine the game. Each player must stay on the path, until arriving at the end or soultion to the geograhical representation of the equation.The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).

How does this game work? Edit

This game seems to have no strategy behind it... They could put the sticks anywhere and you'd have no way of knowing if it was a good move...The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).

Like a lot of games mentioned in Star Trek, we just don't know the rules. CNash 23:10, August 11, 2010 (UTC)
I would like to know. 12:20, September 14, 2012 (UTC)
Speculating, I would suppose that the random jumble of sticks is supposed to represent a "folded" state of the final form. At least that's how I'd interpret "finding the seeds of order". --Cyberman TM (talk) 18:37, October 18, 2012 (UTC)
Given the "spatial harmonics" used by seven instantly transformed the jumble into a sphere, the rules pertain to how much plot favors a given individual. -- 18:49, September 11, 2013 (UTC)

Canon error? Edit

In Riddles (s6e06) Harry Kim tells Tuvok that after his encouragment Kim eventually scored a kal-toh, which I assume is a win? Yet in Endgame Tuvok tells Icheb that Kim has never beaten him. The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) at 19 June 2015.

Don't assume, go with the path of least resistance: apparently scoring a kal-toh does not constitute a win. -- Capricorn (talk) 19:36, June 19, 2015 (UTC)
