I don’t know why, but Connections has a habit of building me up with simple answers and then stumping me until I almost give up. Am I supposed to think about my family or go to Vegas and play poker? If you’re battling the same problems when solving today’s Connections puzzle, then welcome aboard. We discuss what exactly the answer to November 3rd’s NYT Connections is, along with subtle hints to guide you along the way. So, without further ado, let’s jump in.
Hint for Today’s Connections Themes
If you want to learn more about what today’s categories are based on but do not actually want the exact answer, then check out these subtle hints first.
- Yellow Category – Despite that
- Green Category – You usually say these twice
- Blue Category – These words can be cut down further
- Purple Category – A higher status
Additional Hint: You need to think like a king to get the purple answer this time
We wish we could go into more detail in this section, but these hints are the best we can do. However, they are closely related to the actual categories, so think long and hard before you scroll below.
Spoiler Warning #1: While this section included hints for the categories, the next section names them. It will spoil the four categories for today’s Connections puzzle, so proceed with caution.
Today’s Connections Category Names
If you are tired of us beating around the bush, here are the themes for today’s categories for the NYT Connections game.
- Yellow – NEVERTHELESS
- Green – REPEATED WORDS IN EXPRESSIONS

- Purple – ROYAL ___
At this point, you might have already clicked on some of the answers. The yellow and green categories remain an easy guess if you can just take your time and solve it patiently, which we highlight as one of the best tricks to solve NYT Connections. You might need to be a bit of a chronic texter for the blue answer, though. As for purple, well that’s another story altogether. If you’re still unable to figure out the answer, scroll down and check out the groupings.
Spoiler Warning #2: The next section includes the answer for today’s puzzle, and you will find all 16 words in their exact categories. So, proceed with caution if you don’t wish to be spoiled.
Connections Answer for November 3
Have you finally given up and are ready for the answer? The answer to today’s Connections puzzle is as under:
- NEVERTHELESS – However, Still, Though, Yet
- REPEATED WORDS IN EXPRESSIONS – Hear, Knock, There, Tut
- WORDS ABBREVIATED WITH LETTERS – Are, See, Why, You
- ROYAL ___ – Family, Flush, Jelly, We
I had a good start around this time. As someone who chronically says ‘there, there,’ I recognized the words in green quite easily. The same case occurred with the yellow category, which I could guess within a few minutes. However, my troubles started with the blue one as I am not exactly the type of person who uses abbreviations or slang on Snapchat.
But after consulting a few Gen Z friends at work, I managed to get the answers to the blue category. The purple category, on the other hand, was annoyingly ambiguous and required me to think royally (pun very much intended) to get it. And like that, I had my connections answer for November 3.
