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.

card game

Patchword is a contemporary (2009) card game invented by game inventor Daniel Weaver, who also publishes the game through his business, Knightweaver Games. A simple but clever word making game, Patchwork features two-sided cards with different letters on each. Players can only see one side of their cards, while opponents may see the other sides. Each tries to make words. The game is recommended for 7-years and up. It received a recommendation from Dr. Toy and a seal of excellence from Creative Child Magazine.
