Falcon Chess 100 has two promotion zones. Only if Pawn gets into the corner-like squares, 4 northwest and 4 northeast, for total of eight squares is there option to promote to Queen. Otherwise, only reaching Zone 2, Pawn must promote to Rook, Falcon, Knight or Bishop. I was influenced, to vary means of promoting, by the several piece to piece promotion implementations current around year 2000 in IO, Pocket Mutation and Tamerspiel. Instead Falcon Chess 100 has no piece promotion but two Pawn zones.
