The answers to today’s Connections, game #369, are…

  • YELLOW: WRITING ASSIGNMENTS ARTICLE, ESSAY, PAPER, REPORT
  • GREEN: THINGS THAT ARE PINK BUBBLE GUM, CARNATION, ERASER, FLAMINGO
  • BLUE: NATO PHONETIC ALPHABET FOXTROT, HOTEL, VICTOR, YANKEE
  • PURPLE: ASSOCIATED WITH #2 DEPUTY, DEREK JETER, PENCIL, SILVER MEDAL

  • My rating: Hard
  • My score: Two mistakes

If anyone from the NYT is reading this today (unlikely, admittedly), I have a question: what is the connection between PENCIL and #2? Another one that I have is ‘Who is DEREK JETER?’, but apparently he’s well known in one country, which seemingly makes it fair inclusion for the New York Times. I also wasn’t massively happy with ERASER being in the THINGS THAT ARE PINK group, because erasers can be many colors and indeed often aren’t pink these days.

Apart from all of those criticisms, it’s all good here. Bah!

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.
