I always used to enjoy reverse chess, where the first player to lose all their pieces was the winner. Taking a piece is compulsory and pawns are not promoted, just moved off the board when they reach the far side.
These days I prefer Backgammon.

It is fun, and much faster in play. The strategy is upside down, but as ever, it is about limiting your opponent's choices..
