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.

Corner the Market Buy and Sell with Play Money

board game

Many game makers produced different varieties of finance-centered board games during the 1940s and especially the 1950s--the years when Parker Brothers' Monopoly game sold steadily. The Whitman Publishing Company, which also made board games, produced an interesting version based on the stock market. Players enter "pits" on the game board and attempt to corner a market in a particular commodity. Like so many games about money, the richest player at game's end wins.
