I thought the purple category was going to be something along the lines of “Musicians I’ve never heard of”

Any time it’s ‘homophone of thing’ or ‘thing with letter removed/ changed’ it is incredibly dumb.

Yes I am mildly spoiling purple, because this is a dumb one.

Today was easy, for a change. Nice.

I feel I got lucky. Not an easy one today.

I tend to shuffle the words left when I’m stuck and I’m really glad I did today. Purple stood out right afterward.

It took me a minute to sort the last two groups out, supposedly the easiest and hardest ones. Lots of tricks this time.

I had never seen ICE used in this way, but that was the only thing I didn’t understand. There weren’t any other possible combinations so I was okay with a guess.

Avoided the baseball red herring, either because there were only three or my lack of knowledge stopped me from seeing the fourth.

Rough one. I had green and yellow figured out about the same time, tried to figure out the other two for a while before committing but eventually locked in those two. Sometimes that board rearranging helps, it didn’t in this case. Or at least not immediately. Spent a long time staring again before purple clicked. I was iffy on one of them but had it right and this was one of those where with three sets solved I still didn’t understand the fourth connection until it was revealed.

Green and Yellow are easy, but I’m trying to untangle the last two and I think I need more coffee.
