The rules state:

'If all of one player's pieces are eliminated before both goal boxes are
occupied by one player, then the player with pieces left is the winner.
Exception: if that player has only one piece left, then the game is
declared a draw.'

And the potential of two Bishops on the same diagonal pattern is extremely
remote.  Why promote to a Bishop when you can get that great Queen?
