There are abstract strategy games which are a major value because they offer you a number of game options which mean more to explore with the same board.

You'll get the idea pretty quicky.

Likely the ultimate given cheap cost, and how a basic game set lets you play a vast array of checker variants, plus great games such as Lines of Action.

Not a perfect information game without a tweak or two, but the variant rules and fun expansions really give you lots to explore

A bit of an under-appreciated game to me. Love the variant rules and objectives available here.

Not that Go can't keep you busy learning, but a set allows Slither and several other interesting games

If you use all the "expansions" that come with this "base" game, then there's a lot of meta-gaming fun to be had with this title.

It's strange that Chess is not the first item in this List.
The game offers so much. There are thousands of books with strategies, beginnings of game and even the best Chess players all the time discover something new in this game.

Board could also be used for Medieval or Ancient ancestors of Chess
