[Icehouse] Branches, Twigs, and Thorns

I am looking at implementing the game Branches, Twigs, and Thorns on SDG. 2-player seems trivial, as well as 4-players, but I wanted the opinion of people who have played. If I do a 4-player version, it needs to take into account the fact that players sometimes withdraw prematurely. In a 4-player game, does the game still work well if a player simply stops playing? Scores would continue to accumulate and resignees would be disallowed from winning regardless of score, but would gameplay be adversely affected? Should I just stick with a 2-player version?
