Many students and teachers at RCHS take part in playing the daily New York Times (NYT) games. The NYT provides fun and interesting games for people to play that change daily. Examples of games include Connections, The Crossword, The Mini Crossword, Wordle, Spelling Bee, Letter Boxed, Tiles, and Vertex. 

In the past couple years, the NYT games have become popular, especially during the pandemic. NYT games provided people with fun, and thought provoking games that changed daily. Wordle in particular is the most popular of the NYT games, but other games such as Connections and The Crosswords have also become favored games. Students and teachers of Rockbridge County High School are entertained by these games and play them often. 

People can access the NYT games on web browsers by going on The New York Times website. From the website, they can choose the game(s) that they want to play. 

On another note, the reasons that students and teachers enjoy these games are because they provide students and teachers with something fun and productive to do. Because the games change every day, it always leaves NYT fans with a new puzzle to look forward to. 

Mr. Brian Hamelman, junior John Brooke, and Ms. Maryann Wolfe talk about playing the NYT games, and they each say their opinions of the NYT games. 

 Hamelman talks about what games are his favorite. He plays wordle and connections daily.

 “Connections has been really fun just because it’s new, and it shows me a new take on a word game that I enjoy,” said Hamelman. “It makes my brain think in a different way.”

Brooke is also an avid NYT player. 

“My favorite games are wordle because they are really good brain warm-ups, and connections because it is really hard, and it is definitely a challenge,” said Brooke.

  Finally, Wolfe talks about her strategies for the games. 

“For me, wordle is my favorite because it is fun to try to guess a new word everyday, and whatever word pops in my head is the word I start with,” said Wolfe.
