Connections Reply by November 21
Still can’t solve the puzzle after all the help above? In that case, the answers to today’s Connections puzzle are:
- TYPES OF TEETH – Canine, fang, molar, tusk
- FASHIONABLE – Chic, hip, hot, trendy
- DANCE MOVES – Floss, Robot, Vogue, Worm
- THINGS THAT SUCK – Leech, straw, vacuum, vampire
I started off very strong today by solving the Purple category first. Even though this would be the hardest part, making this connection was actually very obvious. I then continued with Yellow by simply thinking about my own teeth (without the Tusk of course). Although my fashion sense is ten kinds of dead, I knew what Chic and Hip stood for and that’s why I chose the Green category.
I’m actually grateful that the Blue category was left for last, because I had no way of knowing that the Floss or Vogue were dance moves. I connected these last four words together and got the response from NYT Connections by November 21st!
