Only Connect host points out similarities to fresh New York Times game

The New York Times is beta testing a game called Connections which has gained attention for its similarities to a round featured in BBC2 quiz show Only Connect.

In both games, players are shown 16 clues which must be categorised into four groups of four. Once a category is correctly identified, the clues are grouped together at the top of the board and asasigned a colour.

The only notable difference is that Connections refreshes each day and players can only make four mistakes (akin to Wordle), whilst in the Connecting Wall (as it’s known on Only Connect) players must solve the wall in two and a half minutes. Connecting Wall players have unlimited guesses until they’ve found two categories, after which they are only given three incorrect attempts.
