I started my NYT Connections journey by solving the Yellow category. It was quite easy even if the staff did choose a different approach this time around. I then moved on to the Green category and chained together the words that formed these events.
I definitely had trouble with the Blue category as I had never heard of Heteronyms before. However, the words did sound the same to me, even if I didn’t fully understand them.
There were only four words left. I connected them all together and got the Purple category and the NYT Connections for December 30.
