Connections Answer for November 2
Have you finally, given up and are ready for the answer? The answer to November 2 Connections is!
- IGNITE – Burn, Kindle, Light, Torch
- INFORMATION – Data, Info, Intel, News
- SMALL WOODED AREA – Dell, Glen, Hollow, Valley
- THINGS WITH CORES – Apple, Computer, Planet, Reactor
As you can see yourself, today’s answer was incredibly confusing. Ignite and Information were easy enough to solve as Data and News go quite well together. And I didn’t even need to think much before locking in those groups. I did take the computing companies and gadgets route, bundling Intel, Apple, Dell, and other words together. However, I quickly corrected course after finding intel categorized under the “Information” group.
My troubles came with today’s blue and purple categories. First, I paired up Apple, Glen, Dell, and Computer together. I quickly lost that chance when I realized it wasn’t that kind of Apple. Nonetheless, I made a little use of the brain, and I remembered that everything has a center. After almost 15 minutes of suffering, I could guess the purple Connections answer for today (well, not without luck).
