NYT Connections is something we continue to load up every morning, and there’s plenty of reasons why. Firstly, it’s just about challenging enough to get the brain working early in the morning, but not too time consuming to feel like a chore. It’s also satisfying when you work out the first category, doubly so when the others start to fall in quick succession. Alongside Wordle, it’s become part of a solid routine.

The NYT Connections answers for today (February 7), along with our hints as to the categories, will help you solve today’s puzzle, which, as always, will demand some brain and thinking power.

You get four mistakes in NYT Connections and must work out each group, one at a time. They all have different difficulties too, meaning you can slowly whittle away the options of each puzzle, making things steadily easier for yourself. It’s a little more involved than something like Wordle, and there are plenty of opportunities for the game to trip you up with tricks.

How to play NYT Connections

To play NYT Connections, you ultimately need to find groups of four items that share something in common. Select these four items and press ‘Submit’ to see if you’re correct. You have four mistakes, and need to find the groups before you’ve used all of them up. Here are some category examples:

  • Fish: Bass, Flounder, Salmon Trout
  • Fire __: Ant, Drill, Island, Opal

Categories will always be more specific than things like the number of letters in the words, or broader links like names and verbs. Finally, each group is assigned a color, indicating its difficulty. From least difficult to most difficult, the colors go Yellow, Green, Blue, and then Purple. Try to guess the groups before you run out of mistakes!
