it really doesn't matter all that much, as long as you are perfectly able to create your board game as a simple console program, then adding a GUI wrapper on top of it should really be only a piece of cake. Depending on your background though you may find it much easier to use a non-3D framework for your first GUI, otherwise using OpenGL/SDL is generally a good combination for programs that are supposed to work across multiple different platforms-also, you'll be able to get tons of support due to OpenGL & SDL basically being the de-facto standard libraries for multi platform development. The other alternatives you mentioned would work very well, too-however, you would be limiting yourself to Win32 development, solely-thus, should you eventually find yourself thinking about doing more generic development for additional/non-Win32 platforms, you may not find as much knowledge applicable.
