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.

The Game of Advance and Retreat

board game

McLoughlin Brothers apparently marketed the game "Advance and Retreat" with two separate, and completely different, box cover designs. This example bears an image of Santa Claus, over children in a goat-drawn cart. The design likely appealed to both girls and boys. The other version, with a western theme, likely appealed more to boys alone. The game inside each box is exactly the same. Opponents work towards a center space marked "town."
