Question

Firstly, being new to the site my apologies if something similar has been posted before, but if not here's a straightforward-ish one to try:-

The Cannibals

Three cannibals and three anthropologists have to cross a river.

The boat they have is only big enough for two people. The cannibals will do as requested, even if they are on the other side of the river, with one exception. If at any point in time there are more cannibals on one side of the river than anthropologists, the cannibals will eat them.

What plan can the anthropologists use for crossing the river so they don't get eaten?

Hi Generic,

Yeah ... it's posted here.

One way to see earlier posts is to search for example cannibals +cross.

Welcome to the Den! ;)
