It sure appears like it was a lazy day at NYT, as today’s categories and answers were a nice yet easy jumble of basic things. However, if you still find yourself suffering with a word or two, confusing the categories, then you have come to the right place. Join us as we discuss clues, hidden categories, and finally, the answers to November 14th’s NYC Connections. So, without further ado, let’s go.
Hint for Today’s Connections Themes
If you want to learn about what today’s categories are based on but only through subtle hints, check out these clues first.
- Yellow Category – Our minds cycle between these all the time
- Green Category – Ever been to magic shows?
- Blue Category – It feels nice when you finally acquire something
- Purple Category – These insects are tiny but strong
Additional Hint: You should watch more magic tricks
We wish we could go into more detail, but these hints are the best we can share in this section. They are all closely related to the categories in question today, so think long and hard before you scroll below. Do you still need help with the categories? Perhaps these simple tricks to solve NYT Connections will help.
Spoiler Warning #1: While this section included hints for the categories, the next section names them directly. It will spoil the four categories for today’s Connections puzzle. You have been warned.
Today’s Connections Category Names
Are you still stuck? In that case, here are the themes for today’s categories for NYT Connections.
- Yellow – BASIC EMOTIONS
- Green – BIT OF VOCAL FANFARE
- Blue – OBTAIN
- Purple – _ _ _ ANT
Spoiler Warning #2: We hope you can guess the words now. However, If you still can’t, then it’s time to scroll down. The next section includes the answer for today’s puzzle; you will see all the answers in their categories. This is your final choice to solve Connections by yourself.
Connections Answer for November 14
Have you finally given up and are ready for the answer? The answers to today’s Connections puzzle are:
- BIT OF VOCAL FANFARE – Behold, Presto, Tada, Voila
- BASIC EMOTIONS – Anger, Fear, Happiness, Surprise
- OBTAIN – Get, Land, Secure, Win
- _ _ _ ANT – Adam, Carpenter, Fire, Red
Anyone who has watched enough real or spoof magic shows knows the Presto Changeo goes exceptionally well when combined with Voila. As such, it took less than a minute to get the green category. Basic Emotions by themselves were again relatively easy to understand without any additional hints or Googling.
I then struggled just a tiny bit with making the connection between secure and win. However, when I clubbed it with land, the blue category made sense, and I got that answer too. With only four words left in the puzzle, I combined them to get the purple category and solved NYT Connections for November 14.
