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.

Spy Alley: The Game of Suspense & Intrigue

board game

Game inventor Bill Stephenson's mystery and deduction game Spy Alley, first published in 1992, gathered a Mensa Select award in 1998. Players assume secret spy identities and then must gather needed supplies as they round the board. They bluff by gathering supplies they do not need. The first to reach his or her national embassy, without being identified, is the winner. But be careful! Wrong guesses cause a player to lose the game, while correct guesses allow another method of winning.
