I thought it would be interesting to post games where there are multiple pawn promotions on the board. Here I have a few interesting Queen mayhem games:
Very cool! : )
OK, now a bonus question: what is the minimum number of moves needed to checkmate the opponent's King in a King and two Queens vs King endgame, with only the mentioned pieces on the board, in a position best for the lone King?
P.S. I don't know the answer to this one, but if you know, go ahead!
Here's another one I found:
Just stumbled upon another one:
I've only just posted one Nezhmetdinov's game, when I discovered another one of his:
This is a game in which Spassky got a second queen on the last move, when Larsen resigned. Enjoy it!

By now I'm probably the most famous of the almost-one-man topic creators, but here goes:
Here are two additional games:
Nice games, I like the second game where there is 5 queens on the board at the same time.
Here are three games featuring the wild attacker Alexey Shirov:
I think the answer is 4, as shown in this game below. Most other placements lead to mates in 3 or 2. The interesting thing is, if you put the white king on g2 instead of h1, it becomes a mate in 3!
Now for another of Alekhine's masterpieces:
Yes, another one! This time with Judit Polgar:
I was going to accuse you of copying another thread, but noting that I've already posted on this one, it must be the original. Excellent additions.
Thanks, Nytik! Recently I saw some new interesting games suitable for this topic, and they may get posted soon!
I think 4 if white to move and 8 if black to move:
That was a rather interesting study! OK, question closed, stay tuned for more Queenish armada!
