Sorry to disagree, but the question is answered in Law 12, more explicitly
in Law 12A2 which says:
"The Director awards an artificial adjusted score if no rectification can be
made that will permit normal play of the board".

The Director may not award an assigned adjusted score if the board has been
cancelled without play.
