  4. I began by letting the Buddy autoplay on its own. However, it was so efficient at winning that I stopped it and used "play hint" to get more pieces. I'd use the hints until towards the end of the game at which point I'd capture stray pieces when the opportunity presented itself, whereas if I had let the Buddy continue, it would have gone straight for the kill. In other words, its goal was to win ASAP but since our goal is to get as many pieces as possible in one game, I chose to nab pieces whenever I saw the chance to do so. Again, I recommend doing this towards the end of the game where it's easier to see what pieces to nab without losing the game.
