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.

Careers

board game

The board game Careers is an extremely popular game, first published by Parker Brothers in 1955. Players travel on a board and accumulate points in three catagories: wealth, happiness, and fame. The first player to reach 60 points in any of these categories wins the game. The game has been successfully published since the early date and is translated into many languages. It is consistently a prize winner in games rated by parents.
