Looking for Sunday’s Connections hints and answers? You can find them here:

Hey, everyone! Welcome to the start of a new week! Somehow, we’re already at the midpoint of 2024. The first half of the year was good for me. Here’s hoping that continues, and that the remainder of 2024 is great for you too.

Today’s NYT Connections hints and answers are coming right up.

How To Play Connections

In Connections, you’re presented with a grid of 16 words. Your task is to arrange them into four groups of four by figuring out the links between them. The groups could be things like horror movie franchises, a type of verb or rappers.

There’s only one solution for each puzzle, and you’ll need to be careful when it comes to words that might fit into more than one category. You can shuffle the words to perhaps help you see links between them.

Each group is color coded. The yellow group is usually the easiest to figure out, blue and green fall in the middle, and the purple group is typically the hardest one to deduce. The purple group often involves wordplay, so bear that in mind.

Select four words you think go together and press Submit. If you make a guess and you’re incorrect, you’ll lose a life. If you’re close to having a correct group, you might see a message telling you that you’re one word away from getting it right, but you’ll still need to figure out which one to swap.

If you make four mistakes, it’s game over. Let’s make sure that doesn’t happen with the help of some hints, and, if you’re really struggling, today’s Connections answers.

What Are Today’s Connections Answers?

Spoiler alert! Don’t scroll any further down the page until you’re ready to find out today’s Connections answers.

This is your final warning!

Today’s Connections answers are…

  • Yellow group — show the way (DIRECT, GUIDE, LEAD, USHER)
  • Green group — scheme (CON, HUSTLE, RACKET, STING)
  • Blue group — seen on a U.S. dollar bill (EAGLE, PYRAMID, SEAL, WASHINGTON)
  • Purple group — first word of Canadian provinces/territories (BRITISH, NORTHWEST, NOVA, PRINCE)

My second loss in a row was a frustrating one since a) it’s Canada Day and that should have clicked and b) that’s the country in which I live. I’m now worried I won’t let be back in after my vacation.

I spotted STING, USHER and PRINCE right out of the gate but didn’t see another mononym singer who would go with them. I then turned my attention to the greens but made a mistake by including PYRAMID instead of STING at first. I corrected that for my first group.

I then found the yellows before running into trouble. I didn’t have a clue about the blues or purples. NOVA should have been enough of a hint for the latter. But after a few random guesses, my luck ran out.

That’s all there is to it for today’s Connections clues and answers. Be sure to check my blog for hints and the solution for Tuesday’s game if you need them.

P.S. I went to a very fun show on Friday, with both The Darkness (a band I love deeply) and the always enjoyable Busted playing. So let’s go with my favourite song from the latter to kick off this week.
