A connect wall is a 4 x 4 grid, Each has 16 words inside it. They are broken into 4 groups of four words, Each has a relationship. The four words defining the relations are themselves related, And the relations are defined by a single word as well. More information on Stiv's excellent post.

Here is the connect wall:


Hint 1:

COMPUTER is not one of the groups.

Hint 2:

The answer is relatively crunchy, says the title

Hints 3-5:

ADVOCATE and WINNER are in the same group. CAPACITY is not in the group where VINDICATOR is. BRAIN is not in the group where ALLY is.

Last Hint:

If you want to lead to the answer, just go zig-zag. (not the method but this is a hint okay)

Revised answer taking the hints into account

TREE - copse, timber, grove, digital

RECORDS - winner, champ, vindicator, capacity

STEM - brain, ally, advocate, influence

CORE - potential, capability, mainframe, PC

So the joining word for all groups would be:


  • $\begingroup$ Ummmm, the instructions clearly said that there would be 4 groups. $\endgroup$ Commented Apr 6, 2021 at 13:28
  • $\begingroup$ Yes, which is why this is marked as a partial answer $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ Despite the other comments here (which all make fair points) I think this answer has real potential and suits the title too - if you can lose a group, shuffle its three members among the others and add the missing word into the mix, you may actually be on to something here :) $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I'm with Stiv. By my reckoning, you could distribute the STEM group among the others and make it work with the additional word. $\endgroup$

Here's my not entirely confident answer:

CHAMPION - ally, champ, vindicator, winner
TREE - advocate (??), copse, grove, timber
POWER - capability, capacity, influence, potential
PROCESSOR - brain, digital, mainframe, pc

Final answer: APPLE - Champion apple variety, apple tree, Power Mac from Apple computer, Apple computer processor (e.g. M1 processor). Also an apple is yummy and crunchy which fits the title.

What I'm not sure of is "advocate". Five words fit in the CHAMPION group including "advocate". From the hint, vindicator and winner are in the same group, so one of "ally", "champ", or "advocate" doesn't belong. The TREE group was missing a word, so I put "advocate" there as in "tree advocate", but it's a weak connection.

Partial Answer

Perhaps one of the groups are PC, DIGITAL, MAINFRAME, and CAPACITY, connected to COMPUTER?

    $\begingroup$ This really isn't a significant partial answer; due to the nature of connect walls there will be nearly unlimited red herrings of a single group. It takes 2 extremely solid groups or 3 good groups to be sure enough in them that an answer is warranted, and only then if there's been significant time since posting. Please refrain from doing this in the future. $\endgroup$
