Question
Dear Chuck

Are magnetic chess boards allowed in World Championship chess games according to FIDE chess games rules?.

Thanks
Prashant

Answer
Hello, Prashant.

As far as I know, it is not legal for a participant in a tournament or match game to analyze a position on a board other than either the board that the game is being played on or the large demo-board that is present for the benefit of the spectators.

Enjoy your chess!

Your chess friend,
