Today’s NYT Connection Hints, Answers & Help June 15, #370


Looking for the answer to the June 15 New York Times Connections puzzle? To me, Wordle is more of a vocabulary test and 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 the game editor knows how to trick you by using words that fit into more than one group.

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

Today we also have an answer for the Times’ new game Strands, which is still in beta, and some tips for playing that game.

Hints for today’s connection groups

Here are four hints for the groups in today’s connection puzzle, ranked from the easiest, the yellow group, to the harder (and sometimes bizarre) purple group.

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.”
