We all have people we'd probably rather not be seated next to at a party. Or we know of two people who have a history and should probably also not be seated near each-other at a party. This is the plight of many a wedding-reception-planner. It's a location puzzle and it's been turned into a game, Table Tantrums. It's up on Kickstarter now.
The specific setting for the game is Renaissance Italy. A banquet is being held for a major noble and you have to make sure it goes off smoothly. However, a lot of guests can get... rowdy... when near one-another. Players have a hand of cards representing the different guests that will attend the party. They must try and play out their cards as the tables fill up with people your guests may not like very much. The first player to get rid of all their cards is the winner.
