Search Tips

Quotation Marks—Enclosing a multiword phrase in quotation marks tells the search engine to list only sites that contain those words in that exact order.

The following must appear in ALL CAPS and with a space on each side.

AND—Indicates that the records found must contain all the words joined by the AND operator. For example, to find objects that contain the words wizard, oz, and movie, enter wizard AND oz AND movie.

OR—Records found must contain at least one of the words joined by OR. For example, to find objects that contain the word dog or the word puppy, enter dog OR puppy.

AND NOT—Indicates that the records found cannot contain the word that follows the term AND NOT. For example, to find objects that contain the word pets but not the word dogs, enter pets AND NOT dogs.

Maniac Electronic Game

electronic game

On the side of the box, Maniac introduces itself: "My heart ... if I have one ... is a microcomputer. I convey intelligence, visibly and audibly. Two to four players match wits against my fiendishly clever, infallible computer brain. Beware! I am tricky and I am, above all, a sore loser. If you start to score too high, I become paranoid and increase the level of difficulty. Do you dare challenge me!!"
