Below are the fully spoiled answers to today’s Connections groupings, listed in order of most straightforward to trickiest, based on the games info page.

Hurt

A yellow Connections game bar

Ache

Burn

Smart

Sting

This specific connection grouping came quickly and was easily distinguishable from the rest of today’s words. SMART was the only outlier that provided any sort of challenge since it can have multiple meaning, but makes perfect sense once they’re all seen together.

Look After

Guard

Tend

Mind

Watch

Another fairly simple chunk of words that easily fall together. MIND and WATCH stand out a bit as more troublesome words, but nothing too difficult here.

Answer

Two

Wrist

Wrong

To be perfectly honest, this was the last one that we solved in today’s game and it was only due to the words being the only choices that we scored it. Even looking at them at the time we had no idea how they were connected.
