And, as always, many of our MT problem-solvers had this "think-outside-of-the-box" approach.

What if they found another way around the river, like a fallen tree or something.
-----------------------------------
Samantha from United States, OR


They could all fit in the boat. It would be crammed but it is possable. The girls sitting on the men's legs and that's how they can stay with there knight and they are also able to all cross the river. (Just make sure they dont play chicken with rocking the boat)

One couple can get on the boat and the other three can swim.

This one is lengthy, but worthwile reading..

Jeromy Campbell from United States, ME


In order to cross the river #1-3 of the ladies would have to become engaged with knight #1. This will then leave knights #2-3 to cross the river. knight #3 will come back to become engaged with lady #1. Once knight #3 reached the shore lady #1 dumps knight #3 for knight #2. Knight #3 then goes back and pcikes up lady #2. Knight #3 then brings her to the shore just to get dumped as she goes for knight #2. Knight #3 goes back and gets engaged with lady #3. As they reach the shore lady #3 also falls for knight #2 so knight #3 goes to get knight #1. When Knights #1 and #2 reach the shore ladies #1 and #3 dump knight #2. lady #1 goes to knight #1 and lady #3 goes to knight #3. Now all of the knights are back with their ladies and across the river. What a chaotic relationship they have!

ed from United States, MO


Two knights could cross the river. One knight could return and wait with the others while the other knight went to find a bigger boat.

Drag the ladies in the water while rowing... It might be a bit painful, but since she can't row, it would be o.k.
