I'd seen this elsewhere but didn't know if we had a thread for it. Bollocks to it, here you go.

~

Only Connect is a BBC quiz show where teams compete in a series of matches to finding connections between seemingly unrelated clues. There’s a website called Puzz Grid where you can make your own, so I've had a go at making a few gaming-related ones. I've tried to provide a bit of challenge, and I hope you enjoy them:

An easier puzzle

A harder puzzle

An even harder puzzle

Can you find the four categories and figure out what links them?

Anybody can make their own, and I think people could get pretty creative with this. I hope folk run with it.  Thumbs Up!

Those were belting Cappa! I got 10/10, then 5/10 and then 1/10 so you definitely labelled your difficulties correctly!

7/10 for the easy one (I got everything but I wasn't specific enough about one of the categories!).

4/10 for the medium (I got two connections and *almost* got the last two - then wasn't specific enough about some categories again! If only you could be a Victoria and press me for more info).

3/10 for the hard (was kicking myself though!)

Those were great Cappa, top marks Thumbs Up!

Easy: 7/10
Dropped points because:
 

Medium: 10/10!

Hard: 2/10
I didn't work out any 4-ages but:
 



But that was really good fun! Game quizzes are always great.

Oh I love this, gonna try and make some myself. Managed to get 10, 6 and 4, a little gutted about missed points on the second one as well as I knew what linked the two I categories I missed before they were revealed I just couldn't think what went in which.

Got a 6/10 in the first and 4/10 in the second. Managed to get all the connections in the first one but only knew two of the categories and didn't get any connections for the second but knew what they were all from.

4/10 for the first one though weirdly it said 'correct!' when I guessed Sonic 3 for the Yooka-Laylee links so I should have gotten fewer points and 6/10 for the second! Gaming-Related Only Connect 1f38a

3/10 for Treesmurf:
 

2/10 for Balladeer:
 

7/10 for masofdas:
 

Edit: Also a 1/10 and 0/10 for those two Cappa. My retro game knowledge is poor.

Also, I made a grid! I don't think it's crazy hard, but then again it's difficult to know when you're the one who's made it.
