We provide a natural formulation of information theoretic games on interference channels. We analyze this game on a class of deterministic interference channels recently introduced to approximate Gaussian channels in the interference-limited regime. Our main result is a complete and simple characterization of the subset of the interference channel capacity region that can be achieved as Nash equilibria. We show that for all parameter values of the interference channel, there are always Nash equilibria which are efficient, i.e. on the boundary of the capacity region.
