So how is the game difficult? Are the ropes different lengths? Do they fall? Is success chosen randomly? Does this article count as a stub?

It's not difficult, but it is extremely luck based. The correct rope is chosen randomly. I don't think it's a stub article.--Knife (talk) 14:05, 19 May 2011 (EDT)
