ForbesToday’s NYT ‘Connections’ Hints And Answers For Tuesday, June 11

Hey there, folks! Today marks the first birthday of Connections! To mark the occasion, the NYT has put together what I felt was a very fun grid. Let’s get on with the show.

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.

P.S. In the spirit of fairness in the leadup to the opening game of Euro 2024, I’ll include a song here from the land of Scotland’s opponents, the host country Germany. I do love Rammstein, though they are not for the faint of heart. I spent a couple of weeks last year listening to this one a ton.
