What is NYT Connections and how to play it

NYT Connections is a new daily word game from The New York Times. It is heavily inspired by "The Wall" from the BBC quiz show Only Connect. The premise is simple: you are given 16 words, and you must sort them into four categories of four. The categories can be anything, as long as they are thematically appropriate.

You only have four incorrect guesses before the game is over, so you need to think carefully about how you group the words. To submit a guess, simply select four words and click "Submit." If your guess is correct, the four words will be highlighted in green. If your guess is incorrect, the four words will be highlighted in red and you will lose one guess.

The game gets more challenging as you progress, but it is a lot of fun and a great way to test your vocabulary and problem-solving skills. You can play NYT Connections on the New York Times website or in the New York Times app.
