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: Error in puzzle Nov. 16

By LojowiP » November 18th, 2017, 9:04 am

Thank you for trying to help. I do all the updating, clearing caches, and run CCleaner at least once a week. I switch back and forth with IE, Chrome, Firefox and Edge to get the best results for the different games. There is clearly a problem with the puzzle itself, because, just like you, I can replay any and all of the puzzles - no tokens, but I can replay them. Every single one except that one - it won't let me change anything and it won't let me start over, even though it shows in my calendar as a saved puzzle with the black tick mark. For the record, yesterday's and today's puzzles worked fine again. I think I'm going to have to submit this to EA Help to figure out, because I'm wondering if my using the "Solve" function caused the problem. I had never used that before. Anyway, thank you, it was very kind of you to re-play the puzzle.

I had been wondering if anyone else had this problem.



I played that puzzle & I just went back & RE-played it.
both times it worked as usual & all letters & words were correct.

so many of the problems that players on Pogo have are related to our pc's ( or macs )
if any conflict between programs exists ,or if you don't keep everything UP TO DATE
( that means both ' downloaded AND installed ' ) things may not work as expected .
also to be sure to keep ALL your caches, cookies, history etc CLEARED
a very easy way to do this in under 20 seconds is CCleaner . its free & trouble free

Crossword Cove • Error in puzzle Nov. 16

By LojowiP » November 16th, 2017, 12:11 pm

24 across answer should be drEamland, and 19 down should be deEpsea They intersect at the letters I have capitalized. The letters did not want to fit, so I used Hint, and when I got the same answers from hint, I used Solve. That filled in the letter where the two intersect as "S", giving me deSpsea and drSamland which make no sense. On normal difficulty, it looks like they are properly completed, but when I click on All Done, I get the incorrect/blank letter message, check answers does not show where the problem is, and it's not possible to complete the puzzle. Is Pogo going to fix this, or does someone have a workaround? Nothing I do allows me to finish the puzzle and get the green tick mark on the calendar

Crossword Cove and Boggle Bash do not work well when using Microsoft Edge but the games are working with Internet Explorer.

Make sure your browser's zoom is set at exactly 100 percent.

While you are on the homepage, hold down the CTRL key and press the Zero key (above the letter P on your keyboard) at the same time.
That will reset your zoom.
Do that BEFORE you go to the game.

You could also try a different browser such as Chrome or Firefox to see if you have better results.

You can actually complete this but the badge or tokens should really belong to Pogo. Just use hint and solve and the crossword can be completed from beginning to end. Not very much fun but at least nobody misses out. I have been having the 'typing in the letter' problem for ages now and have given up hope.

Sorry for your disappointment. That is the only version of Crossword available at this time.

A return date has not been announced as of yet.

Keep an eye on the Blog page. An update will be posted when another version becomes available.

My sister can play the game (Crossword Cove) but can only HINT and SOLVE. She can't type any letters to complete the answer. When she types it's like the letters are invisible. Can anyone please help???

Have you tried looking in the thread the Mod provided??? It also helps if you provide a bit of info such as what browser you are trying to use. If using Edge, the thread discusses that also if you read thru it.
