Interesting , thanks for sharing


Connections has four difficulty levels. Each group is given a color which will reveal as you solve.

🟡 Yellow - Straightforward and easy

🟢 Green - Potentially unfamiliar terms or trivia

🔵 Blue - Potentially unfamiliar terms or trivia

🟣 Purple - Trickiest category to guess

Yes, thanks for that Toe.  Possible thread derail - my Mac (using both Firefox & Safari) has always shown the NYT coloured squares as just a gif symbol - until the blue in your post above, i.e.

By the way, I had NO IDEA what the last one was. They were the only four left. Even the explanation doesn’t make them more sensical. Curse you NYT.

Same here. Sometimes when I group them, I have something else in mind. It'll be the right grouping, but for a different reason than I thought

Well the answer says the final group is one of parenthetical words and phrases used in a song title. But I can’t think of songs that have those parenthetical phrases in them. So there’s no way to make the match, unless you’re some kind of music nut. Like Hilda.

Ugh, I wish I had some patience when playing this game.  It's not a race. 

And I did not choose purple because of the described category solution. Lucked out there

It crossed my mind that Satisfaction might be something to do with the Rolling Stones, but never in a million years would I have remembered that it's I Can't Get No (Satisfaction) even though the lyrics repeat just I Can't Get No. I googled Montero and it came up with Lil Naz, never heard of him/her/they or the song.

Princess, would you like to see it light up and hum when I wave it about

In the puzzle world of long ago, that would count as cheating. There used to be a Detective Club in which authors promised not to cheat by hiding essential clues from the reader.

I would have flunked that Connections puzzle. I'd forgotten that the Stones' hit has a word in parentheses, and I've never heard of Montero or Lil Naz.

You are just a thought that someone, somewhere, somehow feels you should be here.

Got my first attempt at #88 wrong because I thought the correct solution was just too obvious.  :facepalm:

They've only done 88 of these and it looks like they've already given up trying
