A mock NYT Connections puzzle solution whose answers are related to crosswords or puzzles in some way.

Connections: the crossword

My daily routine nowadays includes two word puzzles: the Puzzmo/AVCX crossword and the The New York Times’ new game Connections. That’s inspired me to see if I could create a hybrid of the two.

Here’s what I came up with. The following is a normal American-style crossword puzzle — no cryptic clues this time — with 24 seven-letter answers. Once you’re done solving the crossword, write down the seven-letter entries and see if you can group them into six categories of four words each, like a jumbo-sized version of Connections. Good luck!
