Connections Reply by November 5
Have you finally given up and are you ready for the answer? The answer to today’s Connections puzzle is:
- IMCHANGABLE – Even, flat, steady, steady
- LONG, SHARP OBJECTS – Lance, pin, spear, spit
- MUSIC PUBLICATIONS – Billboard, Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, Spin
- WORDS WITH NUMERICAL PREFIXES– Uniform, Bicycle, Trilogy, Quadrant
I always knew that a man of culture would help me. Even though music publishing would be difficult, it took me less than 10 seconds to guess all the words and get the blue category out of the way. The yellow category was also quite simple and easy to guess from the start. I will be honest; the purple category surprised me for a few minutes because of Quadrant, but a colleague pointed out that these might be disguised numbers. Once I got that down, the green category was right where I could complete today’s Connections puzzle.
So yeah, these are the answers for NYT Connections for Saturday this week. How was your experience solving this word puzzle? Where did you get stuck when you did that? Let us know in the comments below.
