Today’s Connections Answers & Hints For February 8, 2024 (Puzzle #242)

The February 8th Connections puzzle is available to solve and if you’re stuck, we’ve got the hints, and fully spoiled answers, you need.

The newest Connections puzzle is up and today’s word groupings might throw a few players off their game. Sometimes a group of words just doesn’t ever seem to go together, while other days the Connections flow like wine.



If a bigger challenge is something you want out of your short daily games routine, the game of Quordle is always recommended. Quordle has players solving four different puzzles at once, based on the popular Wordle challenge. Using one answer at a time, players will need to decipher the clues for all four puzzles before running out of guesses.
