US Version

Those goons are standing right below that wooded crate! All you need to do is cut the rope, but it's all messed up...

Rearrange the tiles so that the rope connects from Luke's scissors to the crate above the goons. Keep in mind that you need to use all the tiles. Now, hurry!

UK Version

Drop this wooden crate on the thugs!

All you have to do is cut the rope...but it's all tangled up. Line up the parts to straighten out the rope, ready for cutting!

Use all the parts!

The final section of rope that connections to the crate is simply one horizontal length. Put that piece in place first.

The section that goes right above Luke's scissors has two pulleys.

The two sections that go at the very bottom have one pulley each. If you think about the direction the rope needs to go, you should be able to find these two sections right away.

The top-right section has one pulley. The rope comes in and out of this pulley from the left side.

The section to the left of the top-right section has one pulley, and the rope enters from the section below. This section also has a piece of rope running horizontally along the top.

Here's the path of rope starting from the section next to the crate:

Right, down, right, left, up, right, right, left, down, right, down, down, up, left, down, left, up, down, down, right, up, right, and down to Luke.

Got all that? Great!



Too bad!

Be sure all of the pieces connect.


US Version

Very nice!

Now, cut that rope!

UK Version

That's right!

It's time to cut the rope, even if you do feel a little sorry for the thugs.
