Hey, everyone! Happy Friday. The weekend is right around the corner, so let’s make sure you roll into it with your Connections streak intact.

Today’s NYT Connections hints and answers are coming right up.

How To Play Connections

In Connections, you’re presented with a grid of 16 words. Your task is to arrange them into four groups of four by figuring out the links between them. The groups could be things like horror movie franchises, a type of verb or rappers.

There’s only one solution for each puzzle, and you’ll need to be careful when it comes to words that might fit into more than one category. You can shuffle the words to perhaps help you see links between them.

Each group is color coded. The yellow group is usually the easiest to figure out, blue and green fall in the middle, and the purple group is typically the hardest one to deduce. The purple group often involves wordplay, so bear that in mind.

Select four words you think go together and press Submit. If you make a guess and you’re incorrect, you’ll lose a life. If you’re close to having a correct group, you might see a message telling you that you’re one word away from getting it right, but you’ll still need to figure out which one to swap.

If you make four mistakes, it’s game over. Let’s make sure that doesn’t happen with the help of some hints, and, if you’re really struggling, today’s Connections answers.

This is your final warning!

Today’s Connections answers are…

  • Yellow group — comfy shoes (CROC, LOAFER, MOCCASIN, SLIPPER)

My second straight perfect game means I’m up to three wins in a row.

Today’s was the first game in ages where I’ve had three groups figured out by the time I’ve finished writing out the word list. Maybe it’s because I’ve been writing about tech for a long time, but as soon as I saw RUBY, my mind went straight to the programming language, and PYTHON confirmed for me that had to be one of the groups.

The yellows were next up as soon as I clocked MOCCASIN. And with the snake red herrings nullified, BOA led me to think of a feather boa, which was my way into the greens. That left the purples to sew things up for another victory.

That’s all there is to it for today’s Connections clues and answers. Be sure to check my blog for hints and the solution for Saturday’s game if you need them.
