BEWARE: Spoilers follow for today’s Connections puzzle!

We’re about to give away some of the answers. Scroll slowly if you don’t want the whole thing spoiled. (The full solution is a bit further down.)

What are the ambiguous words in today’s Connections?

  • A CLUB can be a golf club—but that’s not what we want today. A CLUB can also mean a group of people who unite for a common purpose, an instrument to whack people with, or that symbol in a deck of cards. That symbol is actually related to a CLUB as in the whacking stick; in various countries and deck designs, it is a club, wand, stick, or baton.
  • A WEDGE can be a shape, a shoe, a salad, or a golf club. This time you do want to think about the golf club meaning.
  • PINE can be a tree or the wood you get from it; but it’s also a verb meaning to want something desperately—usually love—that you cannot obtain.
  • HEART ACHE describes a similar feeling, but those two words do not go together today.

What are the categories in today’s Connections?

  • Green: GOLF CLUBS
  • Blue: YEARN

How I solved today’s Connections

This was one of my easier solves lately, and what made it easy was reminding myself to stay on track. Although I’ve quibbled with some of the groupings in the past, usually the puzzle constructor makes sure that the things in the group truly match. Not just on vibes, but on grammar and taxonomy as well.

So CLUB was not going to be in a category with WOOD, IRON, and PUTTER. You can’t (shouldn’t!) have the overall concept of golf clubs on the same level as specific types of golf clubs. WEDGE is the one that fills out that category.

Which means CLUB is now available to go with DIAMOND, HEART, and SPADE for suits of cards.

I thought I had another one in the bag with ACHE, LONG, PINE, and THIRST, but then realized WANTING could go with them. Stay on track! We wouldn’t have a gerund (-ing) alongside plain old verbs. I went with my initial guess, and it was right.

That left WANTING, LOW, SHY, and SHORT. How could a gerund fit here? Only if it’s being used as an adjective. To find something WANTING is to note that it’s missing something—as in when you show up a day late and a dollar SHORT, or you’re a few bricks SHY of a load.

How to play Connections

I have a full guide to playing Connections, but here’s a refresher on the rules:

First, find the Connections game either on the New York Times website or in their Crossword app. You’ll see a game board with 16 tiles, each with one word or phrase. Your job is to select a group of four tiles that have something in common. Often they are all the same type of thing (for example: RAIN, SLEET, HAIL, and SNOW are all types of wet weather) but sometimes there is wordplay involved (for example, BUCKET, GUEST, TOP TEN, and WISH are all types of lists: bucket list, guest list, and so on).

Select four items and hit the Submit button. If you guessed correctly, the category and color will be revealed. (Yellow is easiest, followed by green, then blue, then purple.) If your guess was incorrect, you’ll get a chance to try again.

You win when you’ve correctly identified all four groups. But if you make four mistakes before you finish, the game ends and the answers are revealed.

How to win Connections

The most important thing to know to win Connections is that the groupings are designed to be tricky. Expect to see overlapping groups. For example, one puzzle seemed to include six breakfast foods: BACON, EGG, PANCAKE, OMELET, WAFFLE, and CEREAL. But BACON turned out to be part of a group of painters along with CLOSE, MUNCH, and WHISTLER, and EGG was in a group of things that come by the dozen (along with JUROR, ROSE, and MONTH). So don’t hit ‘submit’ until you’ve confirmed that your group of four contains only those four things.

If you’re stuck, another strategy is to look at the words that seem to have no connection to the others. If all that comes to mind when you see WHISTLER is the painting nicknamed ‘Whistler’s Mother,’ you might be on to something. When I solved that one, I ended up googling whether there was a painter named Close, because Close didn’t fit any of the obvious themes, either.

Another way to win when you’re stuck is, obviously, to read a few helpful hints–which is why we share these pointers every day. Check back tomorrow for the next puzzle!
