Solving Today’s NYT Connections, while not the hardest, stumped me for quite some time. Perhaps I was sleep-deprived, or the staff designed it that way. Nonetheless, I got my thinking cap on and started with the Yellow category. After struggling with Hamper as a container, I finally had it down.
I then moved on to Blue and got it down to a science. Once you connect Curb and Limit, it’s hardly a surprise the other ones fit so well, too. However, I was bent out of proportion when it came to the Green. For some reason, I kept getting confused about which words to use. However, after about 15 minutes of struggling, I had it.
Finally, I connected the last words together, got the Purple category, and finally, the NYT Connections answers for December 2.
