Today’s NYT Connections was all about peppiness with a weird mixture of categories thrown in. While it isn’t overly difficult to solve, you’d still be hard-pressed not to ask for help. For all those times and more, we are here. Join us as we discuss all the hints, categories, and finally the answers for NYT Connections for November 21. So let’s begin!
Hint for Today’s Connections Themes
We start by discussing a few subtle hints for the Connections themes today. So check them out below and see if you can guess some of them.
- Yellow Category – These might help in chewing
- Green Category – Not everyone is this
- Blue Category – Multiple ways to groove
- Purple Category – Some things pull stuff towards them
We wish we could go into more detail in this section, but these hints are the best we can share. They are all related to the categories for the puzzle, so think long and hard before you scroll below to see the exact names. But, if you’re still having second thoughts about the categories, then maybe trying these tricks to solve NYT Connections could work.
Spoiler Warning #1: While this section included hints for the categories, the next section names them directly. Make sure you’re fine with spoiling the category names before proceeding.
Today’s Connections Category Names
If you are still stuck with the categories, then maybe it’s better if we just tell you the names directly.
- Yellow – TYPES OF TEETH
- Green – FASHIONABLE
- Blue – DANCE MOVES

Spoiler Warning #2: We hope you can guess the words now. However, If you still can’t, then it’s time to scroll down. The next section includes the answer for today’s puzzle; you will see all the answers in their categories. This is your final chance to scroll back up.
Connections Answer for November 21
Still can’t solve the puzzle after all the help above? In that case, the answers to today’s Connections puzzle are:
- TYPES OF TEETH – Canine, Fang, Molar, Tusk
- FASHIONABLE – Chic, Hip, Hot, In
- DANCE MOVES – Floss, Robot, Vogue, Worm
- THINGS THAT SUCK – Leech, Straw, Vaccum, Vampire
I started out very strong today by solving the Purple category the first. Even though it’s supposed to be the hardest, making this connection was actually very obvious. I then moved on to Yellow by simply thinking about my own teeth (without the Tusk, of course). Even though my fashion sense is ten kinds of dead, I knew what Chic and Hip stood for so got the Green category.
I’m actually thankful the Blue category got left for last since I had no way of knowing the Floss or Vogue were dance moves. I connected these last four words together and got the NYT Connections answer for November 21!
