Another new week full of Connections and the February 5th collection of words is a tough one to break through, but once you get a few categories locked in the game becomes much easier. As always, the game provides a good assortment of categories that span a good subsection of interests.

If you’re a daily gamer who prefers more of a challenge the Wordle copycat Quordle is an excellent game to add to your list. It takes the basic game and expands it, requiring players to solve four different puzzles at the same time. Although a different style of game than Connections, it’s a great addition to any morning routine.

Connections February 5 The word Answers in large letters with a blurred background of the video game Suicide Squad: Kill The Justice League

Still needing a little help? The fully spoiled answers to each category are listed below, organized from most straightforward to trickiest based on Connections info page.

“Give Me A Break!”

Brother

Lord

Please

Sheesh

Despite being the “most straightforward” we only scored this category once we cleared out two of the others. SHEESH is the only word that really stands out as different and LORD fits in with a lot of other words.

Ecclesiastical Titles

Bishop

Cardinal

Pastor

Prior

Ecclesiastical: (adjective) relating to the Christian Church or its clergy. We can’t be the only ones who needed to Google that word. BISHOP, CARDINAL, and PASTOR were an easy mark, and clearly matched well, but the previous categories LORD threw us off the scent of PRIOR.

Wordle Hard Mode Guide (How to Win & How to Turn It On)

Wordle players can increase the challenge of their daily guess by activating Hard Mode, which limits the player as they guess the daily word.

Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Inductees

Heart

Madonna

Prince

Queen

This was actually the first category we solved in today’s game. QUEEN and PRINCE stood out on their own for different reasons, but once we saw MADONNA we knew this had something to do with music. HEART was an easy jump from there.

City Homophones

Deli

Niece

Roam

Soul

Homophones always get us and the only reason we solved this category was due to it being the only words left. The people coming up with the daily Connections categories are really putting in the work and this was one tough day, well done.
