The inventor of one such game, Arimraa, has an interesting article on Chessbase.com about what it takes to make a board game in which it is still possible for the best human players to remain competitive against computer software."

    I also agree Go is the game to play. Additionally, there are very nice game boards that you can get made out of fantastic natural elements (seashells, amazing hard wood, and slate) that really have a great tactile element to playing the game.

    If you think you may like Go there's also an Anime/Manga called Hikaru no Go which is enjoyable if you're in to that sort of thing.

    Hikaru no Go is fun indeed. Here [xs4all.nl] is a list of the games in the Manga, and here [xmp.net] is a list of the problems (tsumego) in it.
