Japanese IQ test

If you need a little break from work today, check out this Japanese IQ test!  My brother sent it to me, and gosh, I felt so invigorated when I finally solved it! One little problem... the instructions page is written in Japanese. No worries, I've used my mad skills to translate it for you (a.k.a. - I found it on another blog ;) ). Check it out and let me know how fast you complete it!

Here are The Japanese IQ Test rules:

The object is to get all the people to the opposite side of the river. You will know you achieved this because they'll all jump up and down with glee. But you must follow these rules:

Only 2 people can be on the raft at a time
The Father cannot stay with any of the Daughters without the Mother being present
The Mother cannot stay with any of the Sons without the Father being present
The Thief (striped shirt) cannot stay with any family member if the Policeman is not there
Only the Father, the Mother and the Policeman are able to operate the raft, so at least one of them have to be on board to drive it across to the other side
To move the people click on them. To move the raft click on the pole on the opposite side of the river.
