Crossword Cove is a single player word game with a few special Pogo twists. The goal of the game is to fill in all of the words correctly based on the clues in the Across and Down lists.

Click on a square on the puzzle grid to select a clue. Click on the same square again to switch between the Across and Down clues, or press the Space Bar. Type in the answer using the keyboard; use Delete or Backspace to delete letters.

The Stars on the grid are Star Powerups; correctly answer the corresponding clue to collect the powerup, and it will be added to the Powerup Counter (the star with a number next to it). Click on the Powerup Counter to activate the powerup, and it will reveal the most common letters in the puzzle.

Click on the HINT button to see the answer in word-jumble form, and then reorder the letters to find the correct answer. In this word game, you receive half points for filling in an answer with Hint.

If you still can't figure out the answer from the hint, the HINT button will have changed to the SOLVE button, and you can click that to have the answer filled in automatically. You receive no points for filling in a word with Solve.

Click the blue EXPANDED CLUE LIST button for an expanded clue list which you can place on the screen wherever you prefer. You can switch the expanded clue list between a side-by-side and top-and-bottom view by clicking the ROTATE button.

When you complete a puzzle, or would simply like to give up, click the ALL DONE button. You can then click the SUBMIT button to score the puzzle, or click the CHECK ANSWERS button have the computer check your answers and reveal any mistakes to you. You can also click the CANCEL button to return to the puzzle without checking your answers.

Here are some tips to make you a Crossword Cove winner!

Use the powerups as soon as you get them; the more of the puzzle you've filled in, the less help they will be.

Use Hint if you need a kick start to this word game puzzle; you'll lose a few points, but that one answer might help you answer many other clues.

Use the Expanded Clue List to get a better look at all the clues together; you can scan through them more easily and find the clues you can answer.

While everybody earns ranks in Pogo games, only Club Pogo members earn badges when they rank up! When you reach certain ranks, not only will Club Pogo members earn a new rank, but you'll also get a nifty badge to celebrate your accomplishment that you can display next to your name. See if you can be the first person on your block to earn these badges! (Please note that turning off your neighbor's electricity in order to be the first on your block is not condoned by Pogo.)

To find out more about the badges available for this game, please check out the Game Award book in Badge Central.

Crossword Cove • Re: crossword for beginners

When I first played this game I absolutely hated it. One day I decided to go ahead and try the daily challenge. I worked on the 'star' words first so I could use them. When I had all 4 complete I was surprised at how easy the rest of the puzzle was. This game helps to stimulate your brain. It's best to just relax and play. You will understand what I mean about how it gets your brain working. My most hated game turned out to be the first game I ranked out in. You might be surprised at how smart you really are lol...... :D

There isn't any difference in the actual puzzle itself between Easy, Normal and Hard. What makes the skill levels is that on Easy and Normal the correct word "sets". On Hard, is doesn't. Plus, you get 4 power ups to help you on Easy and 2 on Normal. There are none on Hard.
All I can suggest is do the best you can. Don't be afraid to use the Power ups and the Hint button. That is how you learn. Over time, you'll get better and it will be easier.

I always play puzzles on Normal level. I completed the puzzle. I received credit for the daily challenge. In other words, you do not have to play on Easy to earn today's daily challenge.

So replay a puzzle you've already solved on EASY. You don't even have to completely play it, just play two words with the Stars and submit the puzzle. Very simple. Not worth getting huffed about it.

Daily Challenges are there IF a member wishes to complete them. You don't HAVE to.

The challenges I don't like I don't bother completing.

Was the difficulty level set to Easy on all of the puzzles you completed? If it wasn't, you wouldn't get credit.

Also check your Profile page to see if you won the badge. Scroll down a bit on that page, click on BADGES (next to "About Me") and see if the badge is there.




I activated this Badge challenge for last week of December 2016, played (and won) several games but did NOT receive credit towards badge. This is one of the things about Pogo that is quite frustrating. The payer/player follows the rules but Pogo does not show up. Any suggestions? I really don't feel like I want to waste the time playing if there's no progress recorded. And, in your initial message above you say do NOT use any hints. The 'how to' link next to the challenge says NOTHING about NOT using clues, in fact, it says to use the hint button if you're stuck. Here's that content:

Win 4 puzzles on Easy Level this week!
Pick the EASY difficulty before you play.
Answer a clue over a Star to collect it.
Click the Star to reveal the most common letters in the puzzle.

Stuck? Try the HINT button. MY COMMENT: --------------> TRY THE HINT BUTTON? Why state this when
it's not allowed?

Click ALL DONE when you finish the puzzle!


The challenge that Mod_Jada is referring to in the post you quoted isn't the same challenge that we have to complete this week. Notice that it is dated November 17, 2016.

For this Wednesday Challenge in Crossword Cove, Easy As Pie Badge, you can use the hint button if you wish.

And, that comment about the Hint is a normal function of the game. They don't rewrite the entire game for Badge requirements.
