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.

I believe it is the windows update as well. Did a system restore deleting the update and was able to complete the puzzle, at least for today.

I think it is the Windows 10 update as well. I had no trouble at all until the update. Now I can't enter anything into the puzzle.

In the Ugandese formal calendar, not commonly used by the Western World, last year was 2010. They don't see Jesus as the Son of God, ergo, they don't use his "birthyear" as the epoch turning point and, instead, use a local focal event instead. This event just happened to take place a few years after Christ's birth, according to legend.

You mean you were able to play it? I haven't been able to play since last Saturday. I think it is the Windows 10 update that screwed up the works

Crossword Cove • crossword cove not loading

By austexbldr » May 25th, 2017, 12:05 pm

How do I clear a badge, since I started the badge the puzzle loads a error. Do not say that I need to clear my computer or load java or any of that, I can play the free version as well as my wife's account on the same computer and same browser so it has nothing to do with this computer or browser or software!

This has happened to me, too. Move your cursor to the first letter of the first word, then click on that square. Next, change the direction from horizontal to vertical, and then back to horizontal. It works every time for me.

I was having the same problem. Tried several times to load the game, with no success. This last time, the game DID load, but it took 3 or 4 minutes. Granted, I don't like waiting that long, but it worked. The game loaded and I had no problems playing.

I am experiencing the same problem. This same thing happened on Friday, May 12th. I've attempted to play that game again several times, but it won't load. I've cleaned my cache and ran diagnostics on my PC, but to no avail.

Crossword Cove is a Flash game, not a Java game.

That message shows at the top of the Java games because it is a notification letting players know that Firefox, Chrome, and Microsoft Edge do not support Java.

You shouldn't be seeing that message when you go to Crossword Cove because it is a Flash based game.

The link below will show your system information. Copy and paste that information back here and someone will try to help:
