Purportedly a Japanese IQ Test

"Everybody has to cross the river."


Go to this website (http://freeweb.siol.net/danej/riverIQGame.swf)

To start, click on blue circle.


The IQ test rules are:

1. Only 2 persons on the raft at a time

2. The father can not stay with any of the daughters without their mother's
presence

3. The mother can not stay with any of the sons without their father's
presence

4. The thief (striped shirt) can not stay with any family member if the
Policeman is not there

5. Only the Father, the Mother and the Policeman know how to operate the
raft

6. To move the people click on them.

7. To move the raft click on the pole on the opposite side of the river.

If you get it, please don't ruin it for others by posting the answer. There's always PM.

So the symbols in the little box to the lower right are not numbers?

I did enjoy the cheer.

Fun game.

Man, that took me a few tries. I probably would have gotten it much sooner back in my college days. The logic has deteriorated! :cry: For all that work, I was hoping for more animated cheer!
Cool game though. :dance:

No more, but I agree with Kevin. Probably wouldn't have taken me so long the first time if I didn't have baby brain at the moment.

Doug, just wait until you've had a few years of interrupted sleep! Even if the kids (2 and 4) don't wake up (which is still about half the time), I wake up about 4 AM! :mad: My wife and I sometimes look at each other when we've lost our train of thought mid-sentence, and just laugh!

I think I sleep less now that ny daughter is 17 than I did when she was 6 months old...

The best sleep years were from 8 years old till about 12.....

For some reason, I'm not as worried about my 15 year old son....Double Standards maybe?

Still, cool game.

Interesting Japanese Culture.

The criminal is a woman.
The mother beats on the boys if dad is away.
Th dad beats on the girls if mom is away.

Tried to do it at work, but the blocking software said it was a porn site. Had to think a bit but got it around 5 minutes.

11-03-2005, 12:06 PM
Unless there is more than one way to do it, another clue is that the cop & theif are the first to cross, and the last to cross, and . . . ;)

It took a little thinking, but I got it. I used to be good at stuff like that when I was in college. Having a problem solving mindset helps. I was really good at doing proofs in geometry. I was also good at calculus too. So just having your brain used to solving problems helps you figure out stuff faster. I love stuff like that. its good for me to do that, gives the old noodle a workout. FUN!!! Thanks for posting that Eastie! :)

I forgot to mention the mother in my previous post!

Put her on the raft and take her across, but you can't leave the prisoner with the mother.

cause if she ran it wouldn't work... besides isn't this brain teaser just an animated version of what people have been telling for awhile... Harder to figure it out in your head.
