Looking for Saturday’s Connections hints and answers? You can find them here:
Hey, folks! I hope you’re having an excellent weekend. Today’s 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.

Yet another perfect game brings me to three in a row and my 13th straight win overall.
There were some red herrings here in terms of the months. Since there wasn’t a fourth, that obviously wasn’t the way to go. I sussed out the yellow words first, followed by the blues. Those were straightforward enough.
I didn’t figure out the purple and green groups before I started. However, there are only so many groups into which GROUNDHOG can neatly fit. That was enough of a clue for me to complete the purple group, leaving me with the greens for victory.
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 Monday’s game if you need them.
