Whenever my friends chatter all at once, I just try to tell them (in a moderately raised voice so they could all hear it and in a firm tone) "Okay, one at a time now,one at a time..." They do respond to that positively and it doesn't in anyway make one seem rude.

Those situations can't be avoided especially when you guys haven't been hanging out for quite a while and everyone just wants to take the spotlight and tell their own stories. You just may not be the only one who's slowly getting annoyed my all those mouths blabbering at the same time, just be sure though to ask them in such a way that wouldn't humiliate them.

Shut your mouth and pretend as if you are not there and you got the key . Ultimately others will listen to you

try to change the subject and try out talking them instead. but then sometimes, when you are too annoyed, it's better to stay quiet and let them continue talking until they tire themselves out.
