Solve the famous Cannibals and Missionaries problem. Three missionaries and three hungry cannibals have to cross a river using a rowing boat which can only carry two people. If on either bank cannibals outnumber missionaries, then the cannibals will eat the missionaries. Try to make them cross the river.

You can move a person to the boat by clicking on its image. Clicking on an image in the boat moves the person back.
To move the boat to another bank, press the '<<' or '>>' buttons.
