Don't know about Navia Dratp, but Mr. Jack is a great 2 player game which would fit the bill nicely.

You might want to look at Dungeon Twister, Hive or any of the GIPF Project games.

If you like puzzles then the Ubongo Series is a great choice.

All excellent suggestions so far. Others I would add:

2 de Mayo
Neuroshima Hex! 3.0
Camelot
Napoleon's Triumph

Those are all over the lot in terms of complexity, depth and theme. You'd have to be much more specific in your request to get more targeted answers.

I second the Gipf series.

I thoroughly enjoy Yinsh and Tzaar within that family

Should be able to get lots of Dreamblade figures pretty cheap still, since the game is discontinued. Very nice 2p game.

Edit: Of course, the best abstract is Go!

Navia Drapt is a ton of fun. I highly recommend it.

Dreamblade is also very cool and may be easier to find.

another fun two player game is Dracula

Just noticed that nobody had given you feedback on Navia Dratp. I think it is an outstanding game, and if it appeals to you, and you have access to a set you can buy, you should definitely go for it. Note that you'll need both starter sets (red box and blue box) to play.

I really like durable, waterproof, boardless 2 player strategy games that can be easily taken and played anywhere in the world, but still have incredible depth. The ones that come to mind right away are:

Hive
Palago
Trax

Another thumb for Navia Dratp. If the theme doesn't put you off, it's a fantastic abstract strategy game.

Then I'll second Dungeon Twister which is one of the greatest game there is for pure strategy game set in a fantasy setting.
