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.

Tin Box Tiddly Winks


The first patent was granted for the game tiddelywinks in 1888, and the game enjoyed great popularity at the end of the Victorian era. It lost favor during the early 20th century but enjoyed a huge revival, mostly at college campuses, in the 1950s. Though many view it as a simplistic children's game, serious players take genuine pride in seriously playing. This contemporary but retro version comes packed in a nostalgic design tin box.
