Since the queen is the most powerful piece, the vast majority of promotions in practical play are to a queen. If the queen is not available, the official rules are that the player should stop the game clock and summon the arbiter for the correct piece.

Some finer sets do include an extra queen of each color.Created by: globalquiz.orggames riddles »hard 44% he must choose another piecehe must choose another piece537he must wait until the queen is availablehe must wait until the queen is available490he wins the gamehe wins the game303he may use any item as the extra queenhe may use any item as the extra queen1054 How many pawns are there on a chessboard at the start of a chess game?16.
