I'm looking for an old comic with Scrooge McDuck I think, or maybe Donald Duck. I read it in French was I was young (late 80s or beginning of the 90s).

He is facing a chess player, some kind of gigantic mountain man, with a big beard. This man always wins

because he is so scary and intimidating, with his big scary look, that the player in front of him loses all his confidence and kind of forfeit.

  • Dunno about him being intimidating... comicvine.gamespot.com/intellectual-176/4005-34136 – FuzzyBoots Dec 16 '18 at 23:08

    One of my favorite! If I remember correctly, it is about Scrooge Mc Duck making a bet with his rival Flintheart Glomgold. The game is not chess, but a similar game invented for the comics with overly complicated rules that are said to take years to learn. – Taladris Dec 16 '18 at 23:58
  • Welcome to SFF by the way! I edited the question to hide the spoiler. I am not sure it is necessary for an indentification question, but I enjoyed the ending of the story so much! More importantly, could you edit the question to add in which context (years, country,...) you read that comic. That would help people to answer your question. – Taladris Dec 17 '18 at 0:05
  • Thx for your help all but it's not Intellectual-176. It could be what you are talking about Taladris but I'm not sure. – Morgan1er Dec 18 '18 at 20:18

There is this recent (2014) Donald Duck encounter with Magnus Carlsen, the world chess champion.


However, it's not clear if it was produced in any languages other than Norwegian.
