Title says it all:
Which boardgames could be used on a LARP, or easily adopted to a LARP-game?

Yes, Go and Chess and Checkers and Nine Man Morris are well-known, but also are a bit...special; very complex games with a big board and nice figures and so on - like only played by nobles or studied mages...

What about the evening at the camp fire or in the tavern?

Just some wooden hexagons in a bag. Perfect.

Like above - Six - but a little bit more complex. Still two players.

This is great! A nice bluff game, and even a medieval theme: Build a town wall! And playable with 6 players!!

I own this and like it REALLY much! The pyramids are made out of wood, and the mat is made from leather.

Ok, das müßte man natürlich neu basteln, aber vom Spiel her ginge es auf jeden Fall.

I've seen this played live-action at Origins before. The map was taped to carpet with masking tape, and each player walked around the "rooms" when it was their turn and carried their deck of cards with them. The guy running it played the Doctor and I think was in costume. Everybody looked like they were having a great time acting everything out.

This is perfect for those barroom encounters, it's also an excellent game in its own right.

You need to redo the carpet, of course.
A friend of us did that, and it worked well.
