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.

game

Hand crafted games of skill abound at county fairs, circus midways, and carnivals, and they were common throughout the 20th century in the United States. Sometimes these games are rigged so that players seldom win, sometimes fair play is the rule. Tossing games are common amoung these, as this hand-painted example shows. The simple rules, painted on the backboard, are easily understood. Bright colors helped make the target attractive.
