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.

The Hippodrome

board game

During the late 19th and early 20th centuries, game manufacturers often brought out slightly different versions of other makers' popular-selling games. Edgar Clarke, in this example, published his "Hippodrome" game with a circus theme. It is just a version of the then wildly popular Tiddledywinks, with a circus animal game board. Players flip their "winks" up onto the board, which is marked with different point scores. The very decorative box cover hides a fairly plain game board.
