n. In order to play the measuring tape game all you need is a self retracting tape measure.

While seated in a chair or on the floor, you extend the tape vertically or horizontally as far as you can until it buckles under its own weight. Whoever extends it the farthest, wins.

The game is typically played while doing some sort of construction work.
