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 Smurf Game

board game

The Smurfs are comic characters which first appeared in a Belgian comic in 1958. The little blue creatures grew in popularity around the world gradually, gaining a television series in the United States in 1981. Milton Bradley published a board game that same year, based on the little creatures antics and aimed at young children--and their seeming fascination with the characters at that time.
