What is Connections?

Connections is a word puzzle published daily by the NYT, host of the endlessly popular Wordle Puzzle. Created daily by crossword creator Wyna Liu, Connections presents a selection of 16 seemingly disparate words to be grouped into four sets of four words, with each group of four words having a common theme.

For example, the words “Hook”, “Nana”, “Peter”, and “Wendy” are Peter Pan characters. Let’s take another example: “Action”, “Ballpark”, “Go” and “Stick” are words that usually appear right before the word “Figure”.

Your job is to guess what themes connect the different words together – but be careful because most of the time red herrings are deliberately placed there 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 simple or tough it is to find the Connection. These colors are: yellow (easiest), green (simple), blue (medium), and purple (hardest).
