The answers to today’s Connections, game #384, are…

  • BLUE: PLACED DOWN LAID, PLACED, PUT, SAT
  • GREEN: CONNECT COUPLE, TIE, UNITE, WED
  • YELLOW: HOMOPHONES TO, TOO, TUE, TWO
  • PURPLE: ___FLOWER MAY, SUN, WALL, WILD

  • My rating: Moderate
  • My score: 1 hint

I always struggle when Connections uses lots of short words. I guess it makes sense – there tend to be more ways in which they could be used as prefixes etc. Anyway, that probably explains why I made a mistake early on here, guessing TUE, WED, SAT and SUN as days of the week, only to find out I was on the wrong track.

The breakthrough came when I looked at one of the longer words, PLACED, and formed the blue group. Like that one, green was simple synonyms, and with only eight words left the homophones of the yellow group became apparent.

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.
