Xaigo!

Setup



I want to know what is the best setup

Pieces


K:King=royal, on-cell
C:Lizard=on-cell, default piece for automation
Q:Queen=off-cell
G:Guard=prevents adjacent cells from automation
O:Wheel=off-cell, changes automation type of piece adjacent to type on opposite side (but not color)

Rules

Move one piece per turn, as a non-royal chess king. Then it changes according to Conway's Life. A lizard with less than two or more than three adjacent lizards+kings dies. An empty square with exactly three adjacent lizards+kings creates a new lizard, of the color of majority adjacent lizards+kings. Kings and queens aren't affected by this. Win my capturing opponent's king.

Notes

Game Courier:

Xaigo 1 (8x8), Xaigo 2 (9x9)
Note: These will create 30-second limit error, and might not be best setup
