Hey, folks! Welcome to the weekend. Today’s Connections hints and answers are coming right up.

How To Play Connections

In Connections, you’re presented with a grid of 16 words. Your task is to arrange them into four groups of four by figuring out the links between them. The groups could be things like horror movie franchises, a type of verb or rappers.

There’s only one solution for each puzzle, and you’ll need to be careful when it comes to words that might fit into more than one category. You can shuffle the words to perhaps help you see links between them.

Each group is color coded. The yellow group is the easiest to figure out, blue and green fall in the middle, and the purple group is typically the hardest one to deduce.

Select four words you think go together and press Submit. If you make a guess and you’re incorrect, you’ll lose a life. If you’re close to having a correct group, you might see a message telling you that you’re one word away from getting it right, but you’ll still need to figure out which one to swap.

If you make four mistakes, it’s game over. Let’s make sure that doesn’t happen with the help of some hints, and, if you’re really struggling, today’s Connections answers.

Connections Answers For September 16

Spoiler alert! Don’t scroll any further down the page until you’re ready to find out today’s Connections answers.

This is your final warning!

Today’s connections are…

  • Yellow group — fairy tale figures (GIANT, PRINCESS, WITCH, WOLF)
  • Green group — chess terms (BISHOP, MATE, GAMBIT, QUEEN)
  • Blue group — Peanuts characters (CHARLIE, PEPPERMINT PATTY, PIGPEN, WOODSTOCK)
  • Purple group — I love ____ (LUCY, NEW YORK, ROCK ‘N ROLL, YOU)

And just like that, my five-day winning streak is over.

The yellow group was easy enough but I got hung up on trying to figure out the blue words through trial and error. I don’t know that much about Peanuts and never would have guessed PIGPEN is the name of one of its characters. I probably should have switched over to trying to deduce the chess group but, as Elvis once said, I got caught in a trap.

That’s all there is to it for today’s Connections clues and answers. Be sure to check my blog for hints and the solution for Sunday’s game if you need them.
