NYT Connections Hints and Answers for November 23, 2023

Let me start by saying that no one at the Beebom office knew that Turnover is even food. This utter fact confused me with the Yellow category for a solid 15 minutes. Once I had moved on from that, I quickly dived into the sea of Green. The only saving grace here was knowing my phonetics, which helped me solve the category.

I then moved on to the Blue category and got stuck for a long time again. While I knew geography wasn’t my strongest suit, turns out I also lack general knowledge. Thankfully, a colleague jumped in to help me out. With only four words to go, I combined them all to get the Purple category and got my answer for NYT Connections for November 23.
