Tie-Up Positions
Here are some of the most common and most effective ways to position your victim when you tie them up.  At the top of the list are the easiest positions to execute, and they get more difficult as you go down the list.
1)  Standard Tie-Up
Your standard tie-up is very basic and common.  It is recommended for beginners only.  If you are a veteran at tying people up, we definitely recommend one of the following positions.  However, the standard tie-up position consistes of simply only tying your victim's hands or feet, or both.  In this position, the victim is not tied to any other object, such as a chair or tree, and this is why it is only recommended for beginners.  It is common because it is quick and easier than other positions.
2)  Chair Tie-Up
Another common position, as you can see to the right, is the chair tie-up.  It is relatively effective, because your victim is tied to the chair, hindering their movement.  However, it is not fool-proof.  The chair can usually still be moved even if the victim is tied tightly to it.  This could cause potential risks for escape, although it is still unlikely.  The chair tie-up is overall a pretty decent position to use.
3)  Bed Tie-Up
A rather effective position to tie someone up in is the bed tie up.  As you might have guessed, this is when you tie the victims arms and legs separately, each to a bed post.  It is recommended you execute the bed tie-up with the victim laying face-up.  This position is harder to get the victim in than the previous ones, but your hard work will be well worth it when you stand there at the foot of the bed, viewing the final result.  The most famous bed tie-up we have seen was executed by Victor LaRue on Alex Cahill, on the show Walker, Texas Ranger.  Refer to the TieMaster Rankings or Protieganist Rankings pages to read more about these two, respectively.

4)  Standing Tie-Up
This, as you can imagine, is a very hard position to tie your victim up in.  Only some of the best TieMasters have managed to pull it off from what we have seen.  As you can guess, this position requires that you tie your victim up while they are standing up, with their hands tied to something ABOVE THEM.  The reason this is so difficult to pull off is the fact that when someone is standing, they still have a full range of motion, making your job a lot harder.  Also, it is very hard to hold their arms in place above them while they kick and squirm, trying to get away, all while you work the rope around their hands/arms and the object above them that will anchor them down.  This position is recommended for aspiring TieMasters.

5)  Hog Tie
One of the most difficult position to tie someone up in is the hog tie position.  For those of you who don't know, the hog tie position is when you have the victim on the ground laying on their stomach, with their arms and legs up in the air behind their back, all tied together somehow by rope.  Duct tape will simply not work for this position.  This is one of the hardest to pull off simply because you have to completely dominate the victim to hold them in this position while you work the rope and tie that final knot.  If you pull this off on an unwilling victim, you should be proud of yourself:  you are very well on your way to being a TieMaster.
6)  Back-To-Back Tie
By far the hardest position to pull off.  This position is when you have two victims tied up simultaneously back-to-back with the same piece of rope or duct tape.  The reason this is the most difficult position is obvious.  It is because there are TWO people that you have to tie up at the same time.  This position can also be combined with the chair tie-up for a classy touch.  If you are a single person who has pulled off a back-to-back tie-up on your own, you have every right to be crowned a TieMaster.  This tie-up is demonstrated in the picture to the right.
