This really was an easy-peasy Connections puzzle. In fact, this might be the fastest I’ve ever completed this game. I solved green first: CHEEK and SASS stood out immediately, LIP and ATTITUDE completed the set. Yellow was every bit as simple, with CHANCE, OUTLOOK, PROSPECT and FORECAST not hard to identify. And with only eight left, the four FISH for the blue group were obvious. I’m not sure I would have got purple, but I didn’t need to…

What is NYT Connections?

NYT Connections is one of several increasingly popular word games made by the New York Times. It challenges you to find groups of four items that share something in common, and each group has a different difficulty level: green is easy, yellow a little harder, blue often quite tough and purple usually very difficult.

On the plus side, you don’t technically need to solve the final one, as you’ll be able to answer that one by a process of elimination. What’s more, you can make up to four mistakes, which gives you a little bit of breathing room.

It’s a little more involved than something like Wordle, however, and there are plenty of opportunities for the game to trip you up with tricks. For instance, watch out for homophones and other word games that could disguise the answers.

It’s playable for free via the NYT Games site on desktop or mobile.
