Looks like it was a lazy day at NYT as today’s categories and answers were a fun but easy mix of basic stuff. However, if you’re still bothered by a few words confusing the categories, then you’ve come to the right place. Join us as we discuss clues, hidden categories, and finally the answers to the November 14th NYC Connections. So, without further ado, let’s go.
Tip for today’s connection themes
If you want to know what today’s categories are based on, but only through subtle hints, check out these clues first.
- Yellow category – Our minds are constantly switching between the two
- Green category – Ever been to magic shows?
- Blue category – It feels nice when you finally purchase something
- Purple category – These insects are small but strong
Additional tip: You should see more magic tricks
We would love to go into more detail, but these tips are the best we can share in this section. They’re all closely related to the categories that matter today, so think long and hard before you scroll down. Do you still need help with the categories? Maybe this one simple tricks to fix NYT Connections will help.
Spoiler warning #1: Although this section provided hints for the categories, the next section names them directly. It will spoil the four categories for today’s Connections puzzle. You have been warned.
The names of the contemporary compound categories
Are you still stuck? In that case, here are the themes for today’s categories for NYT Connections.
- Yellow – BASIC EMOTIONS
- Vegetable – A LITTLE VOCAL FAN FARE
- Blue – TO ACQUIRE
- Purple – _ _ _ ANT
Spoiler warning #2: We hope you can guess the words now. However, if it still doesn’t work, it’s time to scroll down. The next section contains the answer to today’s puzzle; you will see all the answers in their categories. This is your final choice to resolve Connections on your own.
Connections Reply by November 14
Have you finally given up and are you ready for the answer? The answers to today’s Connections puzzle are:
- A LITTLE VOCAL FANFARE – See, Presto, Tada, Voila
- BASIC EMOTIONS – Anger, fear, happiness, surprise
- TO ACQUIRE – Acquire, land, secure, win
- _ _ _ ANT – Adam, Carpenter, Fire, Red
Anyone who’s seen enough real or fake magic shows knows that the Presto Changeo works exceptionally well when combined with Voila. As such, it took less than a minute to achieve the green category. Basic emotions on their own were again relatively easy to understand without additional hints or Googling.
I then had a little trouble making the connection between safe and winning. However, when I added country, the blue category made sense, and I got that answer. With only four words left in the puzzle, I combined them to get the purple category and solved NYT Connections by November 14th.
