smarty pants?? japanese IQ test

Posted by Mindi at 8:00 AM Labels: ,

have you done this?? my b-i-l neal sent it to me last year, betting that my mad mathmatical skillz (translation: NONE) would make me give up solving the puzzle. i SUCK at this kind of stuff, but i dug down deep and , after 4 different tries, solved the freakin' thing.

yes, i AM that lame. i know this comes easily for some of you, but not so much for mindi. you must check it out, you won't regret!!!

This is a great one! And yes...there is a solution
The rules are: Click on link then click on blue circle. Apparently this is an IQ test given to job applicants in Japan. Everybody has to cross the river.
The following rules apply:

Only two persons on the raft at a time.

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

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

The thief (striped shirt) cannot 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.

Um....I can't even get past the stupid instructions!
Who the h3ll goes with who?

I don't care if the J@p@nese think I'm an idiot. But I'll give it a whirl!

Ok, I did it.
But it took me a minute or two.

i admit i had to do a google search for a hint to begin. i am ashamed. but i figured the rest out myself! but my favorite part was testing to see who-could-go-with-whom and apparently you can't leave the parents with kids of the opposite gender because they will SMITE THEM TO THE GROUND. i found that peculiar.
