3. that boat looks like it can fit more than 2 tbh
4. always take across one human and one zombie?
5. Can't you just take 1 zombie and 1 human across in each boat? Or am I missing something?
6. maybe some extra zombies could cling on to the outside of the boat ?

Maybe more than two people/zombies on the boat will sink it?

You will then have to bring the boat back to the other side, and someone will have to be on the boat....
9. wont the zombies eat the humans anyways?

also its just a boat, no paddle and no horizontal current its impossible to get to the other side!!!

also that boar can clearly take more than 2, just get a little personal and Im sure they'll fit

and yes Im picking at plot holes because I'm not clever enough to answer it properly xD
10. Kill the ****ing zombies, because they're ****ing zombies lol...

12. THAT SECOND SPOILER THO
I'M DYING >.>
13. You pick the human that is the strongest swimmer to swim across the river and the 2 other humans use the boat. Who gives a pumpkin about the zombies?
can they swim tho?

wont the zombies eat the humans anyways?
Hypothetical situations are lost on you TSRians

Maybe the zombies don't like eating an odd number of humans.
15. Too easy, but I am too busy at the moment to try it.
16. I assume you can't push the boat back?

Then move one zombie and one human across. Zombie rows back.
Always keep one zombie in the boat as the driver and alternate ferrying zombies and humans across until there are none left on the first side.
Move the ferry zombie off the boat onto the second side.

19. Is the "you" an active participant counting as a being (and are they additional or part of one of the groups), and is that "you" a zombie or a human?

Let one of the zombies take the boat, so you have on one side 3 humans, 2 zombies. Now transport the first human to the other side.

On one side, there's just 1 human. On the other there's 2 humans 2 zombies. Let the same zombie come back, and this time let them take a zombie.

So now there's 1 human and 1 zombie on one side, and 2 humans and 1 zombie on the other. Now take a human.

2 humans and 1 zombie on 1 side, and 1 human and 1 zombie on the other. Take the zombie over.

Then take the human over. Then the original zombie steering the boat can jump off.
