The answers for today’s Connections game, #370, are…

  • YELLOW: BASKETBALL ARROW DUNK, SWIM, LAYOUT, THREE
  • GREEN: FISH PERCH, PIKE, SKATE, SALT
  • BLUE: PROPERTIES OF THICK HAIR BODY, REBOUND, LIFTING, VOLUME
  • PURPLE: ___ BABY FLOWER, JUST, POSTER, PROBLEM

  • My ranking: Moderate
  • My result: Two mistakes

Today I was a bit sloppy and guessed wrong a few times before I pulled myself together and marked them all off one by one.

The first group I noticed was the BASKETBALL group (yellow), because of the DUNK and LAYUP. But I’m not a huge basketball fan and initially I tried these two solutions with BOUNCE and LIFT (thinking they were just “basketball stuff” and not specific shots, then I wondered if it was volleyball related and replaced them with PIKE.

With two errors, I looked elsewhere and identified the FISH group, green. Then I noticed _CHILD, which was a lot easier than the color purple would suggest. Back to basketball, with options restricted this time, brought answers: FLOATER and THREE were the missing two. And for the first time, I was able to solve the last group before I played it, correctly identifying that it was related to hair properties.

How did you feel today? Send me an email and let me know.

What are NYT calls?

NYT Connections is one of several increasingly popular word games created by the New York Times. The task is to find groups of four items that have something in common, and each group has a different level of difficulty: green is straightforward, yellow is slightly more hard, blue is often quite hard, and purple is usually very hard.

The advantage is that you technically don’t have to solve the last one because you will be able to answer it by process of elimination. What’s more, you can make as many as four mistakes, which gives you some slack.

It’s a little more complicated than something like Wordle, though, and there are plenty of opportunities for the game to throw you into tricks. For example, watch out for homophones and other wordplay that can unknown answers.

You can play it for free via NYT Gaming Site on your desktop computer or mobile phone.
