"Everybody has to cross the river".

The following rules apply:

Only 2 persons on the raft at a time

The father can not stay with any of the daughters without their
mother's presence.

The mother can not stay with any of the sons without their father's
presence.

The thief (striped shirt) can not stay with any family member if the
Policeman is not there.

Only the Father, the Mother and the Policeman know how to operate
the
raft.

To start click on the big blue circle on the right.

To move the people click on them. To move the raft click on the pole
on
the opposite side of the river.

Surprised myself by doing it in about five minutes with only one false start. Lot's of cheering at the end. I'll now write down the moves but won't spoil anyone else's fun by posting yet.

What a disfunctional family though!! I hear social services are on the case.

I thought the premise was rather odd.
Maybe it is a Woody Allen thing.

Wow, the answer to this is evading me. I did the first version of it without a problem. Maybe I need a new brain.

Why do they beat up each other ??

Seems like my next door family. the father does not trust the mother being with her sons. the mother does not trust the father.

Would make a nice show for Jerry Springer.

The old cannibal/missionary puzzle, retold.

The missionaries offer the body of Christ. The cannibals are most intrigued by the offer. Brings the idea of transubstantiation to a new context.
