A connect wall is usually a set of 16 words which can be split into four groups of four related words. Each of those groups can be described under a single over arching group as well. Unfortunately, that leaves the words feeling very segregated. They've gotten tired of being separated into groups, and they have formed a new group where they can all belong.

 ---------------------------------------
|  IRAQ   |  GNAT   |  SYNC   |  VEND   |
|---------------------------------------|
|  PHO    |  SENT   |  TRY    |  TANG   |
|---------------------------------------|
|  BALK   |  FLAP   |  SHE    |  CUB    |
|---------------------------------------|
|  FRAG   |  GEL    |  ONYX   |  FUR    |
 ---------------------------------------

All 16 of these words are related in one unique way. Can you find the single tie that binds them all together?

It appears the tie is

every word in the grid rot 13s to another one in the grid. Like sync and flap.

    $\begingroup$ I don't think that's something that ties sixteen words together. It ties two together. Something that ties sixteen words together is that they each rot13(ebg guvegrra gb fbzr inyvq jbeq). $\endgroup$ – msh210 Aug 21 at 5:33
  • $\begingroup$ Yes that was the first thing I saw but I couldn't find any in the grid that only did that. They seem to all require it to be a valid word IN the grid. There could be another additional special property though. Not sure. $\endgroup$ – Amos Zoellner Aug 21 at 11:13
