The Connections answer for today, 19th June is waiting to be discovered by you, so get your thinking cap on and prepare to solve this puzzle.

If you haven't played it before, Connections challenges you to sort a group of 16 words into four groups where all of the words are well... connected. This connection could come from them sharing a similar meaning, being part of a place name, objects found in a kitchen or anything at all really!

While this may sound easy, the Connection groups each have a different level of difficulty - with Yellow being the easiest and Purple being the hardest. For this reason, working out today's Connection answer might be rather tricky. You may get one group straight away, but another might be a mystery to you. Thankfully we're here to help!

Originally developed during The New York Times game department's annual game jam, the beta version of Connections was released in June 2023. Since then it has become one of the most popular games The NYTimes has to offer, only beaten by Worlde. Though some connections have been made to the BBC's Only Connect program...

Hint for today's Connections answer

Instead of jumping straight to the answer, let's start with some hints for today's Connections puzzle:

  • Yellow - If you're in agreement.
  • Green - Think about Tinder.
  • Blue - When there are lots of things.
  • Purple - Mystic Meg.
  • Aye belongs in the Yellow group, Court in Green, and Sea in Blue.

Remember - Yellow is the easiest group to find followed by Green and Blue, with Purple being the hardest set of words to connect.

Connections answer for 19th June

Without further ado, here's the Connections answer for today:

  • Positions In Favor - Aye, For, Pro, Yea.
  • Go Out With - Court, Date, See, Woo.
  • Multitude - Drove, Host, Pack, Sea.

Today's Connections puzzle is a good example of how the first two groups are extremely helpful when it comes to finding the two more difficult ones. The Yellow group was the first I found by putting together words that meant looking for something. Right after this one, I got the Green group. Kisses and Yours were fundamental for me to understand from which angle I should approach this group. With these completed, finding the Blue group became easier. Camp and Party were the words that showed me the topic around which the group would be formed. Lastly, I just put the Purple group together with the remaining words.

What to play after Connections?

The obvious answer to this question is Wordle, but, if you've already solved that today, then The New York Times does offer other games. When it comes to word-based games, The NYTimes has the Mini Crossword, Spelling Bee, Letter Boxed and Strands, which is still in its beta phase. If you fancy a break from words, then you can also try Tiles - a motif matching game - or Sudoku.

Outside of The NYTimes, there's Semantle - where you have to reach the secret word by guessing its meaning. Spelling doesn't count in Semantle, instead you have to pay attention to the numerical value your guesses have to chart your path to the answer. If you'd prefer to keep to the Connections format, however, then it's worth visiting Puzzgrid. Here you'll find hundreds of Connections-style puzzles, the twist, however, is that you only have three minutes to solve them.

(You can also just watch Only Connect on BBC iPlayer...)

Good luck solving today's Connections!
