River Puzzle
categories: Games

The members of this family want but two things – to cross the river, and to beat each other into unconsciousness. One task is significantly easier than the other as you will soon find out.

super easy once you figure it out! I wish it had multiple levels or something though...finishing it is almost depressing.

I wonder why the thief isn't concentrated on escaping when the cop goes to the other side of the river.

I got across!
I've seen this kind of problem before, involving a farmer, a fox, a cabbage and a sheep...
one boat, operated by the farmer
there's room for only one other thing.
fox+ sheep = bad
sheep + cabbage = bad...
That problem is a lot easier...

Funny thing is, its not actually so hard if you use the right way of thinking.

Instead of just fiddling with the raft and focusing entirely on the mother and father, you should use 'If-then' thinking.

You'll narrow down the possibilities that way.

For example. At the beginning you can conclude that you cannot sent either the father or the mother with only one of the kids, since the remaining kid would be hit by the other.

And you can send them both, but you'd also have to bring them both back or the kids will be unprotected against the returning parent. So thats useless.

As such the only possibility is to send the cop first, and he naturally must take the thief with him. However, he DOESN'T have to take the thief back if the thief is all alone. Allowing the cop to return, and take someone else with him. After all since the cop is returning as well, the thief can't harm him. Naturally the cop cannot take one of the parents, because the other would hurt the remaining kids. So he must take a kid.

Then he must also take the thief back because else the thief will hurt the kid.

And so forth.

Its really a case of, if this, then that thinking.

The big problem I think for most people is how to get that last kid across. The trick there is a matter of thinking 'How do I get that raft on the other side'

Hint, the police is your friend here. Remember you can leave the thief all by himself if no one else is there for him to harm.

chewy's got it right. Leave the whole family behind or sink the damn raft with everybody on it. Save us the trouble of keeping this family together especially when they'd obviously rather kill each other instead.

Here is the solution: Pm and the outlaw, Pm back, Pm and boy, Pm and outlaw back, dad and boy, dad back, dad and mom, mom back, mom and girl, Pm and girl, Pm back, Pm and outlaw. And now watch the retarded dance.

i think in order for it to qualify as a "safety dance" their arms should really make an "S"... it was fun to refresh my memory though! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HcOZ6xFxJqg

These parents might as well leave these children behind and get a fresh start. This batch just isn't meshing well with the family.
