chess.com on a physical board ?

Hi,

is it possible to play a game against a real opponent (not AI) as I do on Chess.com, but using a physical board ? So my physical moves would be sent to chess.com and my opponent’s moves would be sent to my physical board ?

Thanks

The only board that I know of that currently does automatic moves is the Square-Off board

The last time I looked, they were claiming that was cheating, weren't they?

Square -Off boards are allowed.

As long as you treat it like a tournament game eg touch move

I have a Chessnut Evo and get a lot of satisfaction playing chess.com in the real world. I don’t do 100% of my games there but enough to continue to use it and justify the cash outlay (I was an early adopter on kickstarter). I’m very happy with it, though I haven’t yet learned how to do some of the features for which I bought it.
