Connections is The New York Times’ new puzzle game. It’s about organizing 16 words into four groups based on how they’re related. The game starts fresh every day at midnight, and each day’s puzzle can be easy or hard. It’s like Wordle, and you can see how well you’re doing compared to your friends.
How to play the Easy Mode of Connections:

- Now the Game word changes to Easy
Now, you’ll see a grid with 16 words. Your goal is to group these words into four sets of four by figuring out their connections. These connections can be things like names of video game series, book titles, shades of red, or names of restaurant chains.
Some words may seem like they could belong to more than one group, but there’s only one right answer. You can rearrange the words to help you see the connections better.
The groups are color-coded: yellow is the easiest, followed by green, blue, and purple, which is the toughest.
Select four words and click “Submit.” If you’re correct, those words will be taken off the grid, and you’ll see the connection between them. If you make a mistake, it counts against you, and you only have four chances before the game ends.
