This page contains a lot of information about DGT boards, including the patent, detailed description of technologies and algorithms used. Many additional references are provided, too. It is definitely an interesting read!

    While this link may answer the question, it is better to include the essential parts of the answer here and provide the link for reference. Link-only answers can become invalid if the linked page changes. Oct 27, 2014 at 19:52

    True, but I would not pretend to grasp half of the concepts/technologies in play and so could not hope to explain it nearly as well as the page does. Perhaps someone else can. Oct 27, 2014 at 19:55

The board does not verify the moves played at all. It does not even recognize the concept of a "move" - it just tells you where every piece is when you ask for it.
