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.

A Game of Outrageous Quotes: Out of Context

board game

The 1980s seemed ripe for card games that involve some kind of trivia or guessing. Many of these were likely inspired by the runaway success of the game Trivial Pursuit, which appeared in 1981. In "Out of Context, A Game of Outrageous Quotes," players must guess the real quote from a series of alternative "fake" ones. Like many of the trivia-based games from this period, the game became dated rather quickly.
