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.



Word games became very popular during the early part of the 20th century, with the invention of crossword puzzles (usually considered to be 1913) and Scrabble (1938). That same latter year saw the invention of Klix, called "the modern crossword game." Klix consists of seven dice marked with different letters on each side. Extensive instructions describe several crossword game variants, as well as a solitaire version.
