It's probably something in the table rules or maybe someone's special ability. I've only seen it in a couple of games ever, but you can have an optional rule where the match ends early if one player achieves a very high score, like 50k, 60k or 70k. This would usually have a name like トップ打ち切り or maybe 天辺 or てっぺん.
I see, makes sense. I'm going to guess it's a feature in this game since so far my impression is that this game highly tailored for quick online matches, which isn't necessarily a bad thing.

Barticle is on point, and the 3 players mode is East-South game.

Curiously enough when I tested out the "3 players mode", the game still lets me select my character and 3 CPUs, thus making the player count still 4 players. I wonder what that's all about?

That's curious indeed...

Anyone able to translate any of these symbols?
I assume they are Japanese but I could be wrong.

Yes, it's Japanese - the middle button has Japanese kana.

有 existence, possession (used to spell Ari)
無 nothing, negation (used to spell Nashi)
申 Monkey zodiac sign (used in words for "to be called", "to say", apology, application)
営 occupation, camp, conduct business
月 month, moon, Monday

得 profit, benefit, rebirth, gain
秘 secret, conceal

祝 celebrate, congratulate (used to spell Shugi = bonus chips)
合 fit, suit, merge, counting word for matches (used to spell Aikotoba = password)
満 full, satisfy (used to spell Mangan limit)
割 profit, assignment, ratio (used to spell Wareme rule)
禁 prohibition, ban

These could be abbreviations/contractions, for example "month" might be something like "monthly challenges" maybe.

I made a few guesses but that's as far as I can get.

Never underestimate the "poke and hope" method - press and see what happens! That's served me well for many years. :D

Wow, that's great!
I tried your guide first but couldn't come up with anything definite. Thanks.

I just saw this. Did not receive a notification in my e-mail.

But yeah, what Barticle said.
