The shuffle feature in NYT’s Connections can be a real game saver—or a complete failure, depending on the day and the words in question. That’s where we come in. There’s a set of helpful hints for the September 16 (#97) puzzle ready if you need them, as well as every answer for today’s game if you’d like to skip to the best bit in a few clicks. Hey, whatever works for you is fine by us.

I had a pretty good start to my Connections weekend, clearing half of today’s board without too much trouble. The other half though? I’d rather not talk about it. Wow, that was far too close for comfort.
