MORE FROM FORBESNYT ‘Connections’ Hints And Answers For Saturday, March 16

Hey, gang! I hope you’re making the most of your weekend. A nasty cold derailed my plans, so instead I’ve been watching sport and playing video games. Actually, that’s not a terrible weekend.

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.

A pretty straightforward game for me today. I sussed out the yellows and blues simultaneously as I was writing out the word list. It didn’t take much longer to pinpoint the greens.
