Connections Reply by November 2
Have you finally given up and are you ready for the answer? The answer on November 2nd Connections is!
- TO LIGHT – Burn, ignite, light, torch
- INFORMATION – Data, Info, Intel, News
- SMALL FOREST AREA – Dell, Glen, Hollow, Valley
- THINGS WITH CORE – Apple, computer, planet, reactor
As you can see for yourself, today’s answer was incredibly confusing. Ignite and information were easy enough to solve, as data and news go together quite well. And I didn’t even have to think much before saving those groups. I went the route of computer companies and gadgets, bundling Intel, Apple, Dell and other words together. However, I quickly corrected course after finding information categorized under the “Information” group.
My problems came with today’s blue and purple categories. First I linked Apple, Glen, Dell and Computer together. I quickly lost that opportunity when I realized this wasn’t that kind of Apple. Nevertheless, I used the brain a little and remembered that everything has a center. After almost 15 minutes of suffering, I was able to guess the purple Connections answer for today (well, not without luck).
So yeah, these are the answers for NYT Connections for today. If you ended up here by accident, it’s quite easy to learn how to play NYT’s Connections game.
