No, it doesn't work. All the strategy comes from the fact that the board fills up, and you need to give yourself enough room to grow your last few pieces. If one player withdraws and stops playing, then it's almost certain that nobody else will lose points for the rest of the game -- there will be too much room. So the game is effectively over anyway.

Cheers!  2-player only it will be then.

The system doesn't have a notion of "this game has been abandoned in mid-game"?
