    If you can figure this out, you're a genius, because I'm lost. :(

    http://freeweb.siol.net/danej/riverIQGame.swf

    These are the instructions (its in Japanese on the site)

    The rules are simple:

    To begin click on the big blue circle to start the game

    Use the rules below.

    Apparently this is an IQ test given to job applicants in Japan:

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

    I did it, but it took awhile. The thief should be the last one to go over, but you have to take him over a couple times so he's not alone with the children. It's possible, but it takes awhile.

    MzB, I am going to try to explain how I got there. If there is a better way, somebody please let us know.
    Okay... the odd numbers will be crossing the river to the "other" side. The even numbers are the return trip. That should get you there.

    2. Police
    3. Police, Child (I'll say girl)
    4. Police, Prisoner
    5. Mom, Girl

    7. Mom, Dad
    8. Dad

    That sounds about right! The police and prisoner should be the first and last ones. You have to keep going back and forth with people.

    That was great fun, but I admit it was a bit hard. It took some trial and error, but I finally got everyone across safely. Great game!
