What If I lay the footbridge diagonally. My drawing may not be on scale, but this could do the job. I hope.

Hi guys,
I just stumbled over this brain teaser and was amused about the entire list of posts discussing the various solutions.
Here is another one that is “self stabilizing” and doesn’t require people to stand on one end to make it work!

You could not assemble this unless someone were on the other side...

How about using the foot bridge as a pole, and use it to jump over the moat?

Or find something big and sturdy and place the footbridge accross it like a see-saw. Then, put a light guy on the end furthest away from the castle, and a fat guy on the other end, When the fat guy jumps on his end, the light guy would catapult to the other side! And, since we don't know how wide it is, you could maybe rotate the footbridge and walk across that way.

Or, make a guy hold the bridge, diagnally like a slide, and have the rest of the people climb up him and slide across. Of course, that guy wouldn't go, but then he could get paid for nothing!

Or, since they can't return empty-handed, just make their own village and become rich merchants.

Or, if the king ordered for a group of jesters, the assassins could kill the origonal jesters, steal their clothing, and get admitted into the castle!
