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.

As far as I know, when I played crossword cove a few days ago, I got credit including towards rank because I went up a rank. However the game freezing was an issue. I could not see the rank progress after the game though because the puzzle stayed after the jackpot spin. I was able to click menu for a new game after the game unfroze and go to a new game instead of exiting game and coming back.

That's something I don't know so I'm unable to give you a definite answer.
You could try playing and see if you get credit or you could wait until the problem is corrected before you start playing the game again.

Glad to hear they are working on it. I noticed problem actually started about 2 weeks ago when it would freeze up when using expanded screen, but was able to go to regular screen and it would free up. Has gotten worse to point of freezing as soon as you submit score. Question - will we be getting credit for the games we submitted during this time?

Pogo is aware of this issue.

The Crossword Cove Puzzle for 5/24 is freezing after completion. You will still get credit for completing the Puzzle. Pogo engineers are aware of the issue and are currently looking for a solution.

You can read the above information by clicking "Help" (at the top of your page) > Known Issues, or by clicking the link below:

Known Issues

Although today's puzzle is the one mentioned above, do know that the engineers are troubleshooting the problem.

Are you using the new Edge browser that comes with Windows 10?
If so, click on the three dots at the top right side of your page and then click Settings.
Click Advanced Settings and make sure that "Use Adobe Flash" is set to "On."

You could also try using a different browser to see if you are able to play.
See below for more information about Windows 10:

I had found out that after I wait a minute, game unfreezes. I can click menu for new game. The game is finished but I am not seeing the rank progress that I should be seeing. I have to click on my profile to see if I have ranked up.

Humm? I have ranked out, years ago, and now play sporadically, but, it plays fine for me. Are you using Firefox or IE11? Are both up to date? Is your Flash up to date? Have you cleared your cache?
