Just some thoughts on this.

I can produce Acrobat files from my LaTeX without Distiller. There are
several systems to do this, and also Ghostscript converts "any" Postscript
file to .PDF. This has some limitations though.

We use LaTeX because there will be no problems printing it just the way we
want it to be. I've had too much trouble in the past where I did a layout in
Word, making sure it was all on one page, and then when I went over to
someone with a better printer, there would be one word on page two. For
basic cutting and pasting to give players some info, Word or plain text
would be fine though.
