At a recent game night at our house, we had two four-player games going on, one at each end of our long dining room table. The conversation from the other game was a bit distracting. I began to wonder ... what are the worst possible games to play at the same table?

Thought process in Ricochet Robot(s): "If I move the yellow robot first, that's one, two, three, four, five, six..."

Shouted during Pit: "FIVE!" "FOUR!" "FIVE!"

This could be a bit distracting.

Bluff as a representiv of a very loud game
(you could also insert Make'n'Break) here and a Brain-Burner like Chess, where you thoughfully have to calculate your next moves is a no-go.

Have you ever tried to think of 3-5 moves up in the future, while the dices are rattling in their plastic dice cup?
