Talking IQ river test... revamped!!

Apparently this is an IQ test given to employees in Japan

Everybody has to cross the river. The following rules apply:

- Only 2 persons on the raft at a time
- The father can not stay with any of the daughters without their mother's presence
- The mother can not stay with any of the sons without their father's presence
- The thief (striped shirt) can not stay alone with any family member
- 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 red *****.....


Result:
if you succeed in:
4 minutes: you are a Genius
6 minutes: You are exceptionnally intelligent
10 minutes:You are very intelligent
20 minutes:You are average
25 minutes: You are a bit slow
30 minutes or more: You are terrible and you should go to work in
Europe...

River Test

how do you find out your score, do you have to time yourself?
i also got 17 moves, but i didn't time myself the first time i did it, but it took around 4-5 minutes.

YAY!!! i got it! took me maybe 6 mins...i dunno


k...i did it again and took me less than 2 mins. i dont know how many moves though, but i did it without any mistakes. so, i think i did it in the least amount of moves possible.

lol, the time is supposed to be from the first time you saw the puzzle, not every time you reset it... lol or maybe i'm just being overly skeptical and don't want to be quick to admit we have a bunch of extremely smart people here on TCC...
