Solving the Wednesday September 6 NYT Connections Puzzle

Today's Connections puzzle on Wednesday, September 6 (87) can be a bit challenging, but don't worry, we've got you covered. Whether you need a little nudge in the right direction or you want to check out the full answers, we have all the information you need to conquer this puzzle.

In today's puzzle, the words are grouped by color. The yellow group consists of words related to monsters in fairy tales, the green group revolves around floral terms, the blue group includes titles earned by sneaky individuals, and the purple group is all about star signs.

If you're ready for the full answers, here they are:
– Yellow: Gnome, Goblin, Ogre, Troll
– Green: Bud, Leaf, Petal, Stalk
– Blue: Agent, Mole, Plant, Spy
– Purple: Dragon, Horse, Rabbit, Tiger

Now, if you prefer a little guidance instead of the complete answers, we have some hints for you. Remember, every day only has one solution, even if some words might seem like they could belong to more than one group. Feel free to shuffle the grid as many times as you need to jog your brain into reading the words in a different way.

If you enjoy solving Connections puzzles, you might also want to check out the board game Codenames. This popular party game involves guessing words from a grid using clues, similar to Connections. Both games challenge you to think about the different interpretations words can have.

It's worth mentioning that Connections was inspired by Wordle, another puzzle game that the New York Times acquired in 2022. In Connections, you can share your puzzle results with others using colored emojis on social media. Each color represents a grouping of four words, and a row with mixed colors indicates that you made an incorrect guess.

To truly impress your Connections friends or challenge yourself, try starting by identifying the purple words first and getting them right on your first guess. With a little practice and perseverance, you'll become a Connections master in no time.
