Today's NYT 'Connections' Hints And Answers For Saturday, July 6

Hey there, everyone! I hope you’re having a most excellent weekend
Today’s NYT Connections hints and answers are coming right up.

How To Play Connections

In Connections, you’re presented with a grid of 16 words. Your task is to arrange them into four groups of four by figuring out the links between them. The groups could be things like horror movie franchises, a type of verb or rappers.

There’s only one solution for each puzzle, and you’ll need to be careful when it comes to words that might fit into more than one category. You can shuffle the words to perhaps help you see links between them.

Each group is color coded. The yellow group is usually the easiest to figure out, blue and green fall in the middle, and the purple group is typically the hardest one to deduce. The purple group often involves wordplay, so bear that in mind.

Select four words you think go together and press Submit. If you make a guess and you’re incorrect, you’ll lose a life. If you’re close to having a correct group, you might see a message telling you that you’re one word away from getting it right, but you’ll still need to figure out which one to swap.

If you make four mistakes, it’s game over. Let’s make sure that doesn’t happen with the help of some hints, and, if you’re really struggling, today’s Connections answers.

Boo, my streak is over after five wins.

It was the yellows that got me. My first guess was SHRINK, MELT, CONDENSE and VAPORIZE. After that didn’t work, I looked elsewhere and found the greens, thanks to BACKUP and ALTERNATE.

I didn’t have a clue about the blues or purples other than a vague inkling that COPPER wasn’t referring to the metal. So I took the trial-and-error approach to the yellows. Unfortunately, every guess I made included SHRINK, so I was doomed. Womp womp.
