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: Change in Format (MERGED THREAD)

Every day I get on to Crossword Cove hoping that has returned to the former format or an option which to play. Everyday so far, nope still the same horrible format.

And, I hope members READ the Insider Blog #37 were Pogo addressed this issue. Then they would KNOW Pogo is aware of their displeasure and is trying to get a contract with a provider to give the members back the regular crossword puzzles.

Why did Pogo quit buying the regular format crosswords? I HATE these new format crosswords. Bring back the traditional crosswords, you cheap bass turds.

I love crossword puzzles but this format is horrible. I think that this makes it harder to play and makes it difficult and takes the fun out of it. I like to use my brain and this format almost sets you up to fail. Please bring our crossword format back to us. CARE4

If they had trouble with providers and had to make a change, a warning would have been nice. I really wanted to play the puzzles I hadn't been able to get to. This grid style puzzle is all frustration and no fun. If they can't find something better, there won't be enough players left to bother.

I think they lost the rights to the other puzzles and had to get another puzzle maker on board. All of the previous crosswords I hadn't worked yet disappeared on the same day these horrible grid puzzles began - August 1. I began paying for Pogo so that I could do the crosswords without ads - if I can't stand playing the puzzles, I might as well go back to the free version.

I don't mind the format change but I've tried every browser I have and it will not load. Keeps telling me to empty cache - that's been done 2 or 3 times and still will not load and if it does load I cannot type.

I agree about the format change. Please go back or give us an option. I always looked forward to my crossword every morning. Now I won't play it at all.
