    Rules are in (possibly) Chinese or here they are in english...

    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.

    And the link is: http://freeweb.siol.net/danej/riverIQGame.swf

    Good luck!

    Nice one. I like the animations when you make a mistake Such a violent family!
    I got everyone across eventually though.

    If you want I can pm you with the solution, but it would ruin the fun of it, IMO...

    Fun? I don't know this has been driving me mad for a day now. I was thinking about it last night when I should have been sleeping (or something) and I can't take it no more... I would be most thankful for da solution...

    I got it!!! I'm a genius!
    Wouldn't be able to tell you how I got it though! There's about twelve trips over and it's very confusing!
    Great post Malinga
    I'm so intelligent!

    I did it in 17 (sorry about the repeated numbers in my pm). Is it possible in less?

    Idid it twice, but each time I tried it again, I could not get it.

    Will keep trying until I can do it, and then PM the solution to interested parties.

    However, an EXCELLENT puzzle - thanks and recced for the link!

    17 moves here too, which I think is the minimum (although are several ways/orders to do it). The thief has (at least) one wonderful opportunity to escape, for those in need of a hint.

    17 appears to be the minimum. The ending is a bit disappointing, I'll have to confess.

    But the sound effects are repetitive animations are SO worthwhile!
