NYT ‘Connections’ Hints June 22: Clues And Answer For Game #377

by News7

After the astonishing success of Wordle, a word game which The New York Times purchased in January 2022 for a low seven-figure sum, the paper released Connections in 2023. The game has already gained a loyal following across the English-speaking world, with some players taking to social media each day to share tips and their results.

How to Play ‘Connections’The aim of Connections is to divide the 16 words you are initially given into four categories based on common characteristics.

Players select four words at a time and, if they are linked, forming one of the four categories, the letters light up and are removed from the board.

Each of the four categories is color-coded to denote its difficulty, with yellow representing the easiest, followed by green, blue and purple.

Once you correctly link four words, their color will be revealed, letting you know how difficult the quiz setters considered that part of the puzzle to be.

There is no time limit, but players can make up to four mistakes only before the game ends, representing a loss.

The player can also shuffle the board at any time, meaning the 16 words will be randomly repositioned.

Sometimes, a word can appear to belong in more than one category, but there is only ever one right answer.

Connections editor Wyna Liu advised that if you have five cards which seem like they belong in the same category, your best bet may well be to move onto a different category and see if you can eliminate some of the words.
