This may be the easiest Connections puzzle for a few days, but that doesn’t make it downright easy – as you’ll see when you play it. There are hints below if you need them.

What should you do once you’ve finished? Why, play some more word games of course. I’ve also got daily Wordle hints and answers, Strands hints and answers and Quordle hints and answers articles if you need help for those too.

The answers to today’s Connections, game #380, are…

  • YELLOW: DIVULGE, AS PRIVATE INFORMATION DISH, SPILL, TALK, TELL
  • GREEN: DIVIDE BRANCH, FORK, PART, SPLIT
  • BLUE: SILENT “K” DOORKNOB, KNIFE, TOPKNOT, UNKNOWN

  • My rating: Easy
  • My score: Perfect

I’ve marked this Connections puzzle as easy, but it’s all relative. Connections is never easy in the way that Wordle, for instance, can be on some days. After all, there’s not really an element of luck as there is there – you always need to use your brain.

As is often the case, I had to stare at the board for about five minutes before getting any idea at all about what to play. When I did spot something, it was invariably a dead end with only two possible connections, for instance SECRET and UNKNOWN or DISH and RECIPE.

Eventually, I realized that BRANCH, SPLIT and FORK could all go together, which finally gave me three for one group, then added PART to make the green ‘Divide’ set. DISH, SPELL, TALK and TELL all fell into place soon afterwards, leaving – you guessed it – the two more difficult groups.

It didn’t actually take me long to solve them, on this occasion, with the many Ks standing out soon after and giving me blue, followed by the default purple – which I think I would have got anyway (but we’ll never know…)

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.
