Connections Reply by November 22
Still can’t solve the puzzle after all the help above? In that case, the answers to today’s Connections puzzle are:
- AREAS BETWEEN MOUNTAINS AND HILLS – Canyon, Gluch, Pass, Ravine
- EAT VORACIOUSLY – Gorge, gulp, scarf, wolf
- OFFERED IN SNOW WHITE – Apple, Shy, Mirror, Queen
- “C” + BIRD – Chen, Clark, Cowl, Craven
I actually got halfway through the NYT Connections puzzle before I gave up and lost all my chances. My game started off fine, guessing the yellow category almost immediately. Call it coincidence, but just seeing the word Canyon took me back to “127 Hours,” and that led me to connect all the other words together. I then moved on to the Green category and solved it within the next 3-4 minutes. The extra time I took was only because I didn’t know that Scarf also stood for food like that.
However, this is when my luck ran out. Although I could have guessed Snow White, I had no idea of the challenge that the Purple category presented. When I ran out of chances, the game gave me the answers and I had my NYT Connections for November 22nd.
