What is Connections?

Connections is a daily word puzzle published by the NYT, host of the ever-popular Wordle puzzle. Created daily by crossword puzzler Wyna Liu, Connections presents a selection of 16 seemingly disparate words that must be grouped into four sets of four words, with each group of four words sharing a common theme.

For example, the words “Hook”, “Nana”, “Peter”, and “Wendy” are all characters from Peter Pan. Or, to give another example, “Action”, “Ballpark”, “Go”, and “Stick” are all words that usually appear right before the word “Figure”.

Your task is to guess what motives connect the different words – but be careful, because in most cases there are intentional red herring connections to confuse you! To win the game, you must find all four connections without making 4 mistakes. On the fourth mistake, the game ends and the answer is revealed automatically.

Each of the four groups in the daily Connection puzzle is also assigned a different color to represent how uncomplicated or hard it is to find the Connection. These colors are: yellow (easiest), green (uncomplicated), blue (medium), and purple (hardest).

That wraps up today’s guide on how to solve the NYT Connections word puzzle.
