Why did the family cross the river?
I ganked this from invader_haywire

Everybody has to cross the river. Only 2 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, 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.

Ah, for some reason I completely overlooked having the mom and the dad on the boat together.

Took me less than 5 minutes :D

I like those sorts of puzzles, thanks for sharing.

Once you get the dependencies right in your head it tends to fall into place.
