If the Connections categories didn’t help enough to solve today’s answers, we’ve provided the fully spoiled groupings below.

Bring Into Being

A yellow Connections game bar

Coin

Create

Devise

Invent

Despite being the easiest category, COIN really threw us for a loop. Multiple words seemed to group into currencies and it was hard to convince ourselves to see it any other way.

Excellent

A green Connections game bar

Fine

Prime

Quality

Sterling

This category was a bit simpler than the others as each word made sense together. Different types of excellent adjectives were easy to identify right off the bat, despite the connections with different silver items.

Symbols Above Numbers On A Keyboard

A blue Connections game bar

At

Dollar

Percent

Pound

The currency theme ran strong with DOLLAR and POUND in this grouping which led to much confusion in the beginning stages of our Connections game today. A very well-done grouping though and a great reminder to not always take things at face value.

Pass The ____

A purple Connections game bar

Bar

Buck

Time

Torch

This might have been the easiest category today, despite being in the purple spot. A common turn of phrase made these particular words easy to spot.
