Why Tape Measures Stink!
November 5, 2017
Are you a tabletop minis gamer fanatic? Then you’ve probably spent some bank on tape measures in your lifetime … and experienced the frustrations of using them:
Accurate? NOT! Depending on the manufacturer and intended purpose, tape measures can be less than accurate. Ever seen games come nearly to blows over 1/8 inch? We have. It’s not pretty!
That arc over longer distances? Tape Measures are not rigid. The more length you need, the more you run into arcing or bending … potentially sacrificing precious fractions of an inch!
Angles matter! In many minis games, line of sight, arcs and angles are key to victory. Tape measures are straight. Always.
That heavy weight in your bag? Sure. You could use one of those tiny, novelty tape measures on a key chain … but do you trust it? To get accuracy, you need one of those hefty jobbers. And those things are h-e-a-v-y!
Coolness points count! Tape Measures don’t look very gamer-y, now do they? You spent countless hours putting together miniatures, painting, basing, creating terrain … That construction/industrial tape measure just doesn’t look right!
