Can I just resign?

Still thinking about Tramways. I have a problem with long games where someone can be cut off from winning the game and still have to play it out. In a game like chess or go, the losing player can resign, but in a multiplayer game that isn’t usually allowed.

Tramways was especially egregious  in this regard, as on the very first turn a player can be severely handicapped through absolutely no fault of their own, and then have to play a whole game with little to no chance at a victory.
