    What does "get rigged" mean?

    Do "get everything rigged" mean "got cheated in anything?"
    Do "get ready to go" mean " be prepared to leave?"


    Context:

    In other words, "We've got everything rigged and ready to go."

    Does "get ready to go" mean " be prepared to leave?" 'Getting ready' is a process; 'being ready' is a state. If you're in that state ('being prepared') you have probably been through the process ('getting ready').

    'Rigging' can mean cheating, But it may be necessary to 'rig' any piece of equipment before using it - a sailing boat, a parachute, anything. We need more context to say what it means in your case.
