I'm going crazy! Wanna come?

I'm a sucker for puzzles. This game was used as an interview question for IT personnel in Japan. You have to get everyone across the River. Here are the rules:

1. Only 2 people can be on the boat at a time
2. Father can't be with the Daughters without the Mother
3. Mother can't be with the Sons without the Father
4. The Thief (in stripes) can't be with any of the Family without the Policeman
5. Only the Policeman, the Father, or the Mother can drive the boat

OK, so is it just me- this was pretty easy!

Jaime: Time to start applying for a Japanese IT job then!

I'm embarrassed to admit how much time I spent trying to figure this out.

Ok. I got it. It took me about ten minutes to figure out, and I'm not sure I could do it again. At least I figured it out! I was ready to call one of you!

Nice, Kenna. Sorry it takes so long to load. Glad you figured it out. And under the 15 min threshold too!
