It’s time to wake up late, brew some coffee, and sit down to solve the Sunday Connections. The weekend is ending and today’s game has brought some solid brain-burner categories. Luckily, we’ve already scored our win for the day and can now help out others who may be struggling.

YELLOW-BROWN SHADES

BEIGE

CAMEL

KHAKI

TAN

Today’s ‘most straight-forward’ category was our second score for the day and it didn’t take much to notice the connection between these words. One of the most boring colors on the planet, and part of a Target store’s uniform, KHAKI stood out to us right away. TAN and BEIGE matched up with it quickly, with CAMEL coming up shortly after. An easy-score to this bland-colored category.

Green Answers: Revealed & Explained

DITCH

CUT

SKIP

Green was our first score of today’s game as these are all something we used to do in High School. Ah, the 90s, the decade of grunge music, Saturday morning cartoons, and unintelligible commercials trying to sell us fruit juice. There was no such thing as Connections back then, you kids have it so good now. We used to use dial-up modems to call BBS systems and play Legend of the Red Dragon for hours. I miss those days.

SWEEP

Much like today’s game the blue category was a quick SWEEP of victorious words. These were actually our ‘leftover’ words for today as the purple category was a fill-in-the-blank, which is our absolute favorite type of Connections category.

CHEESE

We scored purple in third place today and it was a fun fill-in-the-blank. COLOR and HAMPSTER stood out as the first wheel-like words and it didn’t take long at all to grab PRAYER and CHEESE to round out the win.
