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: Squares Not Displaying Background Colors

I fixed it, but I don't know why it worked. I turned off hardware acceleration in Flash and suddenly everything is fine. :D

Check to make sure your game skill level is either Easy or Normal. Because of Hard, the back ground will not change. It will remain white. Only on the first two levels will you get the gold "set" tiles if they word is correct.

Crossword Cove • Squares Not Displaying Background Colors

By Quaff_more » August 14th, 2016, 8:25 pm

I play Crossword Cove on two computers that as far as I know are configured the same. One continues to work fine, but the other started having an issue yesterday. They are running Chrome on Linux. Although Pogo does not support Linux, the Flash games work fine with the Chrome browser.

On the one with a problem, the background colors are not displaying in the squares. Text colors display correctly, but the background for all squares is just clear. So unused squares have the same clear background as all other squares instead of being darkened. When a square in a word is selected, the background does not get highlighted. It just stays clear like all the other squares.

I've tried clearing the browser cache, deleting cookies, deleting app data, restarting the browser many times, and rebooting the computer. But the problem won't go away. I also reinstalled Chrome. Other Pogo Flash games continue to work fine.

Has anyone else seen this problem? Does this happen on Windows or Mac? Is there a setting somewhere in Pogo, in Chrome, or in Flash that might be causing this?

It's a background called In the Cove and was gifted July 8th. It's in the Mini Mall Backgrounds > Outdoor section. Be sure you are in your My Items tab.

I can't get it to open in my Firefox browser either and it seems to be after an update that it returned...
I get the following error message when it stops loading: "Context3D not available! Possible reasons: wrong wmode or missing device support."
I get the same message in Dominoes also.
I too have gone through all the suggested remedies to no avail.

Thank you for your help.

I just played a round of Crossword Cove. I completed it and earned all 4 powerups.
However, I did not receive credit for it on the badge I am working on, where I am required to get 30 powerups.
Is anyone else having this problem?

I've earned that one twice already with out any trouble.
Are you sure it is activated? Did you check under the Challenge tab to see your progress?

Crossword Cove • Not scoring correctly July 11th

By CambriaMermaid » July 11th, 2016, 9:30 pm

Hi---

I just played 2 games. During both of them, I had correct answers which were not counted as being correct.

I also had a badge running during these games. There was no credit given for the number of words-across that I had found.

Not sure if this is happening to others, or if it's just me. Everything worked fine yesterday, July 10th.

Nothing is working for me. After a couple of minutes the game disappears. Everything goes white, or
a message says I've lost the connection or something like that. I haven't gotten through a single game in days. I have all these badges pending, and I don't get credit for anything. Some games won't come up at all. I have a brand new computer, so please don't tell me clean out my caches or any of that other stuff that doesn't mean a thing.
There is really no excuse for this.

Doesn't matter whether you have an old computer or new one, you still need to clean the caches. Especially the browser's temp files. And, yes, it all does mean something. Does your new computer have sufficient RAM to run the Flash games? Does it have a decent processor to play the Flash games?
Not all computer's are build to play games on. Most low cost computer's come with only 4gb's of RAM (memory) and a low end AMD E series processor. While the system if great for surfing the internet, keeping up with social media and maybe streaming videos, they cannot handle the intense process of online Flash games.
Loosing connection could be because your router/and or modem needs rebooting, updating or replaced.
