  Usage: promote q|r|b|[kn]

Designates the piece that a pawn will be promoted to when it reaches the back rank. This is set automatically at the beginning of each game to 'q'. The setting can be changed during the game at any point.

NOTE: you must designate how a pawn will be promoted BEFORE it reaches the back rank, not afterwards.
