Anyone tried the new game 'Connections'

www.nytimes.com/games/connections

kittylester Sun 26-Nov-23 16:53:56

We love it though it's references are sometimes a bit too 'American'

Not sure that it's new. It's been part of our family Quiz thread on WhatsApp for a few months now!

I've not seen it before, here are my results.

Thank you, I'd not seen it before.

Callistemon21 Sun 26-Nov-23 17:22:53

I can't share!
It was much easier than the one on BBC2!

Been live since June. I do all the nyt games, tempted to subscribe.

Farmor15 Sun 26-Nov-23 17:36:04

Thanks for suggestion. Definitely easier than BBC.

Grannmarie Sun 26-Nov-23 17:55:36

Thanks for that Elless.
We enjoy the Monday evening quizzes on BBC2, especially Only Connect. This one can fit into my morning quizzes, Popmaster and Wordle. ๐Ÿ‘

Thanks for the suggestion.

My son and I love Only Connect and between us answer quite a few. He is brilliant at missing vowels. We save the programmes so we can do them together as neither other halves are interested, must tell him about the on line version.

They have an offer for 50p a week for 6 months (ยฃ12.00 a month thereafter unless you cancel)

Elless Mon 27-Nov-23 08:42:09

We love Only Connect but Victoria Coren Mitchell can't half talk - imagine having her as a dinner guest ๐Ÿ˜‚

kittylester Mon 27-Nov-23 08:45:53

Are there any special benefits to subscribing rather than just googling?

Doodledog Mon 27-Nov-23 09:49:18

I don't mind 50p a week - the compilers can't be expected to work for nothing. I think there are some features available to subscribers only, but I'm not sure what they are yet.

Brilliant, thanks. Even more tempted.

Brilliant, thanks. Even more tempted.

That's to DoodleD, quite didn't paste.

Thanks for the tip..

Mollygo Tue 28-Nov-23 09:34:07

Today. Is there an easier way of adding results?

Callistemon21 Tue 28-Nov-23 11:19:18

I can't copy and paste mine at all! Unlike Wordle.

OldFrill Tue 28-Nov-23 12:32:06

On my android phone once completed it shows me a link to 'show results' - the share tab is on there.

Mollygo Tue 28-Nov-23 18:05:58

Thanks OldFrill. As soon as I scrolled down on the show results, I found the share tab.

Well! I was about to say how much easier it is than the Only Connect version. Then I failed miserably today. grin
