Good morning, dear connectors. Welcome to today’s Connections forum, where you can give and receive puzzle — and emotional — support.
Be warned: This article contains hints and comments that may contain spoilers for today’s puzzle. Solve Connections first, or scroll at your own risk.
Post your solve grid in the comments and see how your score compares with the editor’s rating, and one another’s.
The difficulty of each puzzle is determined by averaging the ratings provided by a panel of testers who are paid to solve each puzzle in advance to help us catch bugs, inconsistencies and other issues. A higher rating means the puzzle is more difficult.
Today’s difficulty is 3.3 out of five.
