For my last three full boards with three cut pieces at the ends I ended up just cutting each end at 90 and gluing up with a buttt joint and leaving wedged tight for 24 hours. Seems to be solid for me now and im putting 7mm pvc interlocking tiles down on top so should be ok. If there is any movement in them spots in the future I will lift tiles inspect and if they have come loose I will count my losses and remove the butted boards and replace with new t&g boards. Still had the top edge with the tongue into the groove so should stay put.I encountered this exact same problem with my build - it had a small sliver at the front edge maybe 150mm, 4 boards wide, all along the front. I wanted to just use one board for the 4 length width.
I looked at getting router bits to put the grooves back into offcut boards but gave up looking in the end and just bought 4 extra boards. Seems wasteful but seems like the only way
