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.


board game

Milton Bradley's game "Bombardment" poses a problem. The Bradley company purchased rivals McLoughlin Brothers around 1920, and published some of the other firm's games with little or no changes. McLoughlin first published Bombardment around 1900, to commemorate the Philippine war and the Battle of Manila Bay. The box design remained exactly the same, but Milton Bradley published this example. Probably the game still appealed to boys regardless of, or in spite of, direct association with a specific war.
