At GenCon in Milwaukee we don't allow pre-measuring. Personally, I'd
allow it,
but I'm not a fanatic about it. However, we do allow referees to be
called in
for controversial measuring. This is usually in the case of someone
questionable moves, and such. So, with that in mind, you don't need to
someone, just let a referee do all the pre-measuring if he thinks
someone is
abusing the system.

It's rarely worth anyone's while to abuse pre-measuring by taking more
If you're in the lead, you can try to hold out before the time limit is
up, I
suppose. But I find the game changes so quickly that anyone trying to
slow the
game deliberately might end up losing in the end.
