Chess is such an international game.  Here is a game played by a Hungarian player against a Polish player using the French Defense played in Russia.  The winner was Leo Fleischmann, a former Hungarian champion who gave up the game after a few years.  He even played under an alias, Forgas.  The game had lots of pins and possible sacs that led to mate.  Fleishmann threw everything at the enemy king, including the queen, 2 rooks, a knight, a bishop, and a pawn.
