When playing a free-for-all game with 4 players, this is the recommended layout:

1v1v1v1 Caverns

Note that this makes it difficult for players at opposite corners to attack each other directly until one of the other players is eliminated. To reduce downtime, experienced players may want to add a condition that players at opposite corners should perform their prep, build, and move phases at the same time.
