Connections Answer for November 11
Have you finally given up and are ready for the answer? The answers to today’s Connections puzzle are:
- SPARSE/LACKING – Light, Short, Spare, Thin
- FUN TIME – Ball, Blast, Kick, Riot
- FILMMAKING EQUIPMENT – BOOM, DOLLY, LENS, TRIPOD
- GET A ___! – Clue, Grip, Life, Room
I actually had quite a strong start today. Even though the Blue category is supposed to be difficult, I instantly recognized it since I am around a studio so much. After all, Dolly was a dead giveaway for me. I then moved on to my experience with Hollywood movies, where everyone loves to “have a ball.”
Once I connected those dots, I only had the yellow and purple categories left. The yellow category stood out to me once I had guessed the initial two categories. While I haven’t been told to get a life a lot, I sure am clueless often. However, I sadly lost out to the purple category, for which the puzzle gave me the answer automatically. And just like that, I had my answers for NYT Connections for November 11.
