Solving today’s NYT Connections, while easy, was also more of a different experience, as you will see yourself. I began my journey by solving the Green category, and that only happened because of a co-worker who is a guitarist. I then moved on to the Blue category and got it quickly, seeing as it was quite easy.
I am proud to say that I actually solved the Purple first. While it did take me a few minutes of being confused with other words like Gas and Water, I finally figured out they were being used to hype people up.
With that done, I got the last four words together, combined them all, and got Yellow and, consequently, the NYT Connections puzzle for December 3.
