I have a list of various opening setups for Carrera/Bird/Capablanca chess here. Right now, I think Seirawan chess has the right idea; the problem with 10x8 chess is that the value of the pieces relative to each other completely change because of the new board. With Seirawan chess, we just need to worry about the values of the Hawk (Bishop + Knight) and Elephant (Rook + Knight); everything else can be inherited from FIDE chess.
