The New York Times, known for also investing in games, announced on Monday that its new “Connections” game is now available in its NYT Games. The title was first introduced as a beta in June, but it should now be accessible by iOS and Android users of the company’s game app.

“Starting this week, solvers can now play Connections across all Times platforms, including the New York Times Games app for iOS and Android devices,” NYT wrote in its latest blog. “Connections joins New York Times Games’s other puzzles, like Wordle, Spelling Bee, The Crossword and The Mini in the Games app. Free to download, the app offers puzzles for every level so you can steadily improve your skills.”

The new game offers puzzle challenges to users by presenting 16 words, which they have to group into four based on their relationship. “The four category colors are yellow (the most straightforward), green, blue and purple (the trickiest),” the company explained the mechanics. “But be careful — players only have four chances to solve the puzzle before it’s all over.”

The new game adds to the company’s other collection of games, including the ones it bought, such as the Spelling Bee, Letter Boxed, Tiles, Vertex, and Wordle. Despite being a newcomer, nonetheless, NYT claims that Collections is now its second-most-played game after Wordle, adding it is “the most successful launch of any game we’ve developed in-house since the Mini Crossword in 2014.”
