Today’s NYT Connections Hints and Answer – Help for May 31, #355

 Today’s NYT Connections Hints and Answer – Help for May 31, #355

Need the answers for the May 31 New York Times Connections puzzle? To me, Wordle is more of a vocabulary test, but Connections is more of a brainteaser. You’re given 16 words and asked to put them into four groups that are somehow connected. Sometimes they’re obvious, but the game editor knows how to trick you by using words that can fit in more than one group. 

Do you also play Wordle? We’ve got today’s Wordle answer and hints too.

And although it’s still in beta, I have tips and tricks for Strands too. (Bacon number? Come on, people!)

How to play Connections

Playing is easy. Winning is hard. Look at the 16 words and mentally assign them to related groups of four. Click on the four words you think go together. The groups are coded by color, though you don’t know what goes where until you see the answers. The yellow group is the easiest, then green, then blue, and purple is the toughest. Look at the words carefully, and think about related terms. Sometimes the connection has to do with just a part of the word. Once, four words were grouped because each started with the name of a rock band, including “Rushmore” and “Journeyman.”
