This is supposedly a test some Japanese applicants have to take when applying for a job in Japan.

The object of the game is to get everyone across the river.

Japanese IQ test

Click on link, and then click on the big blue circle. Use the rules below.

"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.

This can be done in 17 moves.

I got it. I needed a pen and paper, though.

So, what's with this family where the parents can't be alone with their opposite-sex children? I think the policeman needs to stick around for a while...

This sounds like the puzzle with the farmer, the fox, the chicken, and the bag of grain.

I finally got it, after everyone basically already killed each other once. I just still do not understand why the theif does not run away when left alone on the other side.
