First off I just want to say that you folks that answer these recommendation posts are awesome. Whenever I have posted here I have always gotten lots of great answers and fast.

For this recommendation I am looking for a game for two that can be easily set up and tore down (small footprint) and is turn based. Something that could be played by two in a call centre environment between calls and that would not be disturbed or confusing if someone needs to step away to do their job for a while. Chess is a good example of something that does work in this scenario, I am just looking for something different.


Thanks.

To expand on the Blokus suggestion, go with Blokus Duo. It's for 2 players and has a very small footprint.

If you're OK with just card games, Monopoly Deal Card Game and Coloretto have small footprints.

Roll Through the Ages: The Bronze Age could also work, but the wooden dice may make too much noise, but that could easily be dealt with.

If I think of others, I'll be sure to post them.

Lost Cities would work well.

You might browse through the games available at http://www.yucata.de because they have the same "interruptible" requirement that you do. But beware that they "cheat" and make some information public that would normally be secret, figuring that without the interruptions you would have been able to track it.

As an example, there are some cases in Lost Cities where I might remember what you have in your hand, and play accordingly. If the game had been interrupted, I would lose that.

Aside from some good suggestions, I'll add:
San Juan
Ra: The Dice Game (assuming dice are ok)
+1 Roll Through the Ages: The Bronze Age (ditto)
