When the members of my group run a measurement, they are getting
a "ballpark" estimate of the distance between two objects.  It's
more of a range band type of number that we'll use, not a precise

It's not an abused issue for us.  One or two may be all that's done.

I would imagine that a tournament rule would have to be applied if
a 'serious' game were being run at a convention.  In that case,
the 'no premeasurement rule' would be useful to avoid the abuse
that some players would make of it.
