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.

Foil

card game

Foil is a word card game in which players draw and discard letter cards until one player can make words using all the cards in his or her hand. All players then shuffle the letters of words they have made and then have five minutes to unscramble the words of their opponents. Players score for words they have made, opponents' words unscrambled, and for forming words that no opponent unscrambles. One of the 3M series of adult strategy games known as "bookshelf games," Foil was designed for 3M by game designer Frederick Herschler.
