This month’s Mind Boggler is a “river crossing puzzle,” a type of puzzle where the objective is to transport a set of items across a river without violating the riddle’s restrictions. These puzzles date back to at least the eighth century; the first written riddle of this kind is attributed to Alcuin of York, a contemporary of Charlemagne. Famed author Lewis Carroll was a brain teaser aficionado and is known to have enjoyed this type of puzzle.
Can you solve it?
