Connect Wall (my first one):

Senior      Station     U.S.        Request
Travel      Boy         Benefit     Club
Group       Card        Private     Zone
Rights      Jam         Open        Family
  1. Find 4 categories with 4 words in each one.
  2. Find the common word for the categories (with the same pattern).

Hint for the pattern that this wall follows:

In each group the category name is a word that either precedes or follows the words in the group to make up a new known word or phrase.

    $\begingroup$ @JonMarkPerry Numbers and user-IDs in the title are also unhelpful. I've edited to a more descriptive title for now, but would encourage the OP to re-edit to an even better title. Perhaps a vague hint towards the form of the solution? E.g. if Brandon and I are correct about the overall topic, you could make the title something like "Connect Wall: go, go, go!"? $\endgroup$ Commented Jan 24, 2019 at 7:25

7 Answers 7


I think I finally figured it out:

CITIZEN: Senior, U.S, Private, Rights (from Yodaswag)
SPACE: Station, Travel, Jam, Open (space station, space travel, Space Jam, open space)
FRIEND: Zone, Boy, Request, Family (friend zone, boyfriend, friend request, family friend)
MEMBER: Benefit, Card, Club, Group (member benefit, card member, club member, group member)

SHIP: Citizenship, spaceship, friendship, membership

  • $\begingroup$ Yes, all correct! $\endgroup$

Ok, so I think I figured 1 of the 4 categories.

the category for the words:

Senior, U.S, Private and Rights is Citizen.


Senior citizen, U.S. citizen, Private Citizen, and Citizen Rights.

also I think the words:

Travel, Card and station are in the same category.

  • $\begingroup$ First category is right! $\endgroup$

I think the overall common theme is


First group:

SENIOR, GROUP, FAMILY, ??? - they can all be types of TICKET.

Second group:

JAM, PRIVATE?, ZONE?, ??? - these words all go together with TRAFFIC.

Third group:

STATION, OPEN?, ???, ??? - these words all go together with BUS.

Fourth group:

U.S., ZONE?, OPEN?, ??? - these words all go together with BORDER.

I'm not sure about all of the words, but I think I'm on the right track here ...

  • $\begingroup$ I think the second word of your second group is incorrect and should possibly go with the first group. $\endgroup$

CITIZEN Senior Citizen, Citizen's Rights, Private Citizen, US Citizen (@Yodaswag)

2. ?

INSURANCE Travel Insurance, Insurance Benefits, Group Insurance, Insurance Card


BUS Bus Station, Bus Boy, Bus Zone, Family Bus


SESSION Jam Session, Club Session, Session Request, Open Session

Common Theme????:

Jeff Sessions, Former US Attorney General?!


I'm going to guess that the broad category is


First Group:

Open, Private, Club, Request. Possible category names: lodge, ticket, access.

Second Group:

Senior, Group, Family, Travel. Category name: Discount

Third Group:

Card, Rights, U.S., Boy. Category name: Customs?

Fourth Group:

Travel, Station, Jam, Zone. Category name: Transportation?

  • $\begingroup$ The category names should be more obvious when you'll have the right words. $\endgroup$

I am using the first group as solved by @Yodaswag

Senior, U.S, Private and Rights is Citizen.

After this, a second group I can think of

Travel, Card, Open and Family is Business
as in business travel, business card, open business and family business

From this I take a bigger leap and organize the remaining words as

Request, Station, Group and Zone is Military
Club, Benefit, Jam and Boy is Family

This four category can mean that the answer is

Law, because citizen (civil rights), business, military and family are all fields of law

  • $\begingroup$ Your answer actually fits very well (maybe except for the last one..) but it is not what I had in mind. $\endgroup$

My guess is:


Senior, Rights, U.S., Private


Family, Benefit, Club, Group


Boy, Station, Travel, Card


Jam, Open, Request, Zone
