I love playing New York Time's new-ish* word game called Connections.
But, I'm really bad at it. So bad that I've stopped sharing my scores with friends.
I often blame my terrible performance on the fact that some of the references are not "culturally inclusive". This is likely a stretch, I'm probably simply not good at it.
Anyways- my consistent underperformance was enough motivation for me to build a clone that centers Black themes, experiences, and references from across the diaspora.
Our version of the game is roughly the same with a few differences:
- The puzzle frequency is lower (these take a bit to make!)
- Some of the categories have pictures
- We have confetti 😅
