NYT Connections today (game #366) – the answers The answers to today’s Connections, game #366, are… YELLOW: HOMOPHONES BI, BUY, BY, BYEGREEN: MUSCLES, INFORMALLY AB, PEC, QUAD, TRIBLUE: MUSIC GENRES DUB, EMO, POP, TRAPPURPLE: SETTINGS ON AN APPLIANCE KNOB HI, LO, MED, OFF My rating: HardMy score: Two mistakes Well this was a tough one! In fact, it’s arguably the most difficult Connections puzzle I’ve played in weeks. I solved it in the end, with two mistakes, but it took me about an hour to find all of the answers, split over several shorter sessions which mostly consisted of me staring at the board in bemusement. The problem is obvious immediately. Five of the words have only two letters, nine have three and two have four. And almost all of them could be prefixes. If you’re anything like me, you will have got hung up on that for ages, thinking of various words that could follow the various answers. Could BI and TRI go with CYCLE? And what would the other two be? Are some of them parts of words – for instance LO and EMO could be followed by TION to make LOTION and EMOTION. But again, there are only two of them. It was only when I looked for a different kind of connection that I made progress. BI, BUY, BY and BYE obviously all sound exactly the same. Obviously! How did I miss that? And then I realized that DUB, POP, EMO and TRAP are all music styles and solved blue next. I was getting there. And then I stalled again. With only two sets to find, I could see that muscles was a probable group – but I only knew three: QUAD, PEC and AB. I tried MED, then HI, failed twice, then went with TRI and got it. That gave me purple too and I solved this difficult Connections puzzle with two errors. How did you do today? Send me an email and let me know.
