Yikes, blue and purple are brutal. Gonna be at this all day.

Yeah, that was tough. I had the blue category right but the members slightly off.

Got it, barely. I even had purple figured out right up until whatever the fuck a beer batter is?Yes, I know it is a method of breading something being fried, but I didn’t think of that while looking right at it. So I took the ones that made sense outside of Beer ____ and blue stood out, thankfully saving me.

I hadn’t heard of one of the blues, fishbowl as a party game? Assume it’s a US thing…

Apparently i dont go to enough parties, cause i’ve only heard of one of those. I was certain purple was some sort of 3 stooges category.

Despite the solve order it was purple I figured out last. Another puzzle where I was about 90% confident about one of them—blue in this case—but not ready to commit until the other Connection clicked. In this case I felt dumb when I realized the spring connection because it’s relatively straightforward, no wordplay or anything deceptive.

Me either, so maybe it’s not even a us thing.

Just started playing this regularly with a group of friends. Great brain teaser in the morning!

Swing and a miss!

Green was easy.
Yellow made me feel foolish I didn’t see it sooner.

As always, blue/purple is the bear. Still sorting it.

I stumbled into purple trying to guess off the wall. What gets me about blue is what year are those supposed to be from???

I still haven’t solved it, but yeah, I’m sensing peak bullshit at work.

In a twist, blue was the dumb one today. I only teased it out because it was the most obviously not an animal. WTF is the Fishbowl game?

That’s one, yeah. I’ve never even heard of that fruit. How’s it spelled? The other is that berry and bury aren’t homophones, at least not universally. I know that will vary by accent, but I say those two words differently.
