Search Tips

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.


board game

Milton Bradley Company produced a clever strategy game called Pathfinder in 1954. The game board somewhat resembled the board for the word game Scrabble, and players also place square tiles upon it. But Pathfinder is not a word game. Players create "paths" with specially marked tiles and accumulate points during the play. While two players may compete, the game allows for up to six at one time, or more as team play. Milton Bradley later produced another game called Pathfinder, different from this version.
