Objectives of Connections NYT

The primary objective of Connections is to identify and create four groups of four words that share unique connections. Players must use their knowledge of language, word associations, and lateral thinking to find these connections. Each group should be cohesive, and the words within it must be linked by a shared characteristic or theme.


  • Word Selection: At the beginning of each round, players are presented with a table containing several words. The challenge is to identify and select four words that form a group with a distinctive connection. The words may have diverse meanings and can belong to various parts of speech, such as nouns, verbs, adjectives, or adverbs.

  • Submitting Answers: Once players have selected their four words, they submit their choices using the 'Submit' button. The game's built-in algorithm then checks if the selection is correct and if the words indeed share a unique connection.

  • Categorization: If the connection is valid, the game assigns a color to the group, indicating its complexity. For example, straightforward connections may be marked with yellow, while more challenging ones are represented by green, blue, and purple.

  • Limited Attempts: Players have a limited number of attempts (usually four) to correctly identify all four groups. This adds an element of strategy and careful consideration to the game, as players must think critically before making their selections.

  • Learning and Fun: Connections not only sharpens vocabulary and language skills but also encourages players to think outside the box and explore unexpected word associations. It's a game that promotes curiosity, exploration, and enjoyment of language and linguistics.

Enjoy the thrill of discovering hidden connections and expanding your vocabulary as you embark on this delightful word adventure!
