Is there a difference in usage between samtlige and alle?

Not really, you can use both. However, samtlige implies everyone present whereas alle = everyone.

How usual is the use of Samtlige? I don't recall having heard it. Is it more normal to use alle sammen?

"Alle" is by far more common, I get more than a 100 million hits for "alle" on Norwegian sites on Google, wheras "samtlige" only returns 390 thousand.

Could "everyone round the table is hungry" be acceptable?
