What is Connections?

Connections is a new word game from the New York Times that’s all about finding connections between words. Each puzzle has 16 words grouped into four categories. Your goal is to figure out what the categories are and group the words accordingly.

How to Play

  • Each puzzle has four categories, color-coded from easiest to hardest: yellow, green, blue, and purple.
  • You can rearrange and shuffle the words to make it easier to find connections.
  • You get up to four mistakes before the game ends.
