The promotion of a pawn to a piece doesn’t really make much difference in the playing of the game, the new piece behaves as it would normally do so. It is simply a matter of finding some way to indicate that this has taken place on the Board. In Blood and Midnight games, however, it may require some interesting situations if, for example, two Queens end up being taken. This still comes down to a player being required to determine who it is connected to his or her opponent who best fills the role of the promoted piece.
