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"?


Well certainly that's an option. If someone resigns in a 4-player game it can be scored as it stands or simply abandoned. That's certainly possible. I've just never had a game like that before. Whichever of those 2 options work best can be done.
