Back to Home use e-Boards

New App



Play on an elegant sensor chessboard, on your favourite chess platforms, against old or new friends and without using any screens.

Order your Pegasus at your local DGT dealer or go to the DGT shop.

Use the app

Use the free DGT Chess app to connect your mobile device with the board. The app then links up with Lichess, a global chess community where you can find 100.000+ real opponents.

It is also possible to play with Pegasus via Chess.com (Android only), Chess for Android, White Pawn and Chessconnect. You can find both apps in the Google Play Store / App Store.

No screens, just natural game play

After connecting with an opponent, you can put your phone away and concentrate fully on the board. You will see your opponent's moves via pulsing LED rings on the board.
