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.

Having the same problems. Game won't load or, if it does, you can't type the words into the puzzle..
I haven't been able to play Crossword Cove since the 15th.
I clicked on the page to check if I have the latest Flash player and I think I do.
I'm using the edge browser. Tried Chrome and Mozilla as well. Just get the "Cripes, can't load" page. :(

I can't play Crossword Cove using Edge, but can using IE or Firefox. For a while, I couldn't play it no matter what browser I used but that seemed to clear up on its own because I didn't do anything but the usual cleaning using CCleaner.

Crossword Cove • WHAT IS GOING ON WITH RANKING

By kittyb13 » July 21st, 2017, 12:11 pm

I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO GET TO THE FINAL RANK (60) FOR 6 MONTHS BY PLAYING EVERY DAY AND EVERY TIME I GET NEAR THE TARGET IT CHANGES AND GOES UP. THIS HAS HAPPENED 3 TIMES NOW. IS THIS RANK NOT ATTAINABLE OR SOMEONE'S SICK JOKE?

There are so many people who are having the same problems not being able to play Crossword Cove. Starts with the letters not appearing when you type in the letters to answer a clue and progresses to getting the Cripe message and not being able to play at all. I wish Pogo would figure out what's going on and either fix the problem or offer a solution.

I am having the same problem and have tried the same fix. Need answers, as this game is the one I play everyday. Not Happy!!! It finally loaded the game but will not show the letters that I typed in. I am a club pogo member and sure don't like paying for something that is not working.

Crossword Cove • Can't play Crossword Cove

By GrandmaSad_ » July 18th, 2017, 8:52 pm

I've read that many people aren't able to play Crossword Cove. I'm not able to either, but only on my name. I switched over to another name (same computer) and can play. So it is not my computer. This only started today, yesterday I had no problem. This is frustrating to say the least!
