My coworker and I have a small bit of table space (maybe 6 sq ft) between our desks. I was looking to get some ideas for games that we can play throughout the week that will fit on the space and work well without one person being there.

Games should:
- have a small footprint
- work well with two
- be easy enough to play without having to constantly ask rules questions (we're both still experienced players though)
- be relatively difficult to mess up (Eg not tons of little bits that are going to go everywhere if bumped)
- work well with async turns (shouldn't need both of us to be playing at the same time to take a turn)
- no dice rolling and preferably not a card game (don't want to worry about hands)

She brought in Equinox and I'm bringing Hive and Mr Jack Pocket. Any other ideas out there? Of course there's Chess but I'm trying to be more creative

Similar to chess, I think any abstract would work well here, like Go or one of the GIPF games. Plus, they usually look nice and have a more "serious" look for the workplace
