Connections Game

What is Connections

Connections isn't just your average puzzle game; it's an immersive experience that challenges you to think creatively. The concept is straightforward yet intricate - you are presented with 16 words, and your task is to group them into sets of four based on a common characteristic or category. 

However, don't be deceived by the simplicity; some words carry multiple meanings, making it a complex puzzle that demands keen observation and critical thinking.
