Today’s NYT Connection hints, answers and help for July 8, #393


Do you need answers to the New York Times Connections puzzle? To me, Wordle is more of a vocabulary test, but Connections is more of a brain puzzle. You are given 16 words and asked to put them into four groups that are connected in some way. Sometimes they are obvious, but game editor Wayne Liu knows how to trick you by using words that fit into more than one group.

And do you also play Wordle? We also have today’s Wordle answers and hints.

We also have today’s answer and some general tips for Strands, a new game from the Times that just moved out of beta and into the NYT’s Games app.

How to play Connections

It’s easy to play. It’s hard to win. Look at 16 words and mentally assign them to corresponding groups of four. Click on the four words that you think go together. The groups are coded by color, although you don’t know what goes where until you see the answer. The yellow group is the easiest, then green, then blue, and purple is the hardest. Look at the words carefully, and think of related words. Sometimes the connection relates to only a part of the word. Once, four words were grouped because each word began with the name of a rock band, including “Rushmore” and “Journeyman.”
