I had them turn the board diagonally and start in a corner.  Also, being as it was their first game strategy was a little light.  I will play with the full piece set next time because upon second playing strategies will probably start turning up.

Huh. Neat. How'd you set up the pieces initially? The only issue I can see
with that is that, unless you start in a corner, you can open with sending
out larges to wreak havoc.
