Connections Reply by November 16
Got the categories but still can’t find the words? In that case, the answers to today’s Connections puzzle are:
- BALDERDASH – Bull, bullshit, bullshit, crap
- RUDDER – Direct, guide, lead, direct
- SINGLE/MULTIPLE ANIMALS – Buffalo, deer, fish, elk
- AWESOME _ _ _ – Dane, Lake, Seal, White
Full disclosure: I didn’t solve the first category myself. I had left my laptop open and came back to my colleague having already discovered the Green category. However, to my credit, I was also able to solve it easily. I took over by solving the Yellow category when I realized the connection between Bull and Hogwash.
Although the blue category was difficult at first, I realized that there is a water buffalo. That brought me to fishing and ultimately to the answer. Of course, I only had four words left, but I had already guessed it in my head. So I put the Great Seal and the Great White together for the Purple category to get the answer to Connections for November 16th.
