Well, to be fair to you, today’s NYT Connections was quite easy to get over with. I began almost immediately by solving the Yellow category since the connection here was simple. I had almost the same case with the Green category. I would have had difficulty with the word Front, but my previous knowledge of undercover cop flicks had me covered.
I did have some difficulty with the Blue category. That was mostly because of the confusion that arose between me considering Peak as a part of a mountain. I mean, who in their right mind knows what a Crag is without Googling it anyway, right? I had to do that and realized it’s part of the puzzle.
Finally, I had four words left that sounded the same. A bingo ding rang in my head as I joined them together and got my NYT Connections answer for November 18!
