The object of the game is to tie the ropes together to have a rope long enough to throw to someone out about 15 feet away and pull them to safety. One player sits on the blanket or in the wagon and waits for his team to tie the ropes together using whatever knots they can fashion. Once the rope is thrown to the waiting player, he/she must tie a knot in the end while the other players tie a knot around the stick. All pulling must be done on the stick and not the rope. The first team to pull the player to safety wins.
