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.

Thank you all for the answer on the grey or black checkmarks

The grey check means that the game was not completed even though you may have gotten credit earlier for completing it. If all the squares are filled in, just click on All Done, and you will get tokens for completing the game. You do not have to Replay or start a New game if it is for the day before and you have not done a game in between. This is why it is always good to start from the calendar to see if the day previous has a grey check. If you have played games between, then you have to Replay to get it to green.

The grey check mark means the game was not completed. Just replay the game and you will receive some tokens and the check mark will disappear. This has happened to me many times, even though I completed the puzzle. I hope this helps!!!

The black (grey) checks have never made sense to me. This question has been asked several times in this forum, and the answers have not been logical. If you go back to the day with the black check and play a NEW game you will get tokens and the check mark will change to green.

What does the grey check mark mean in the Crossword Cove crossword selection calendar mean? The green check means you have finished the game

Pogo holds the license to use the game but the questions are created by Hasbro.

Pogo cannot change the questions.

You could contact Hasbro and let them know that the question bothers you.

Since we are unable to help you here in Forums, I will close this topic.

Today's puzzle included a clue that went something like this, "some on who would be second class in the barrio." The answer was "Anglo." Being of mixed heritage including Hispanic, I fine this very uncomfortable bordering on racism. I don't like to feel bad when enjoying Pogo games.

Logged into Firefox and found out that they now have a 64 bit that you can download. My computer is working in this browser and I will be switching back to Firefox. Hopes this helps others that have been having the same problem.

Firefox is the browser I use most and it is working fine for me.
Make sure you have the latest version: Firefox 45.0.1

I am having the same problem with a few of the games. My flash had already been cleaned and there shouldn't have been a problem. I cleaned flash again but the games still did not work. I used CC Cleaner but still nothing. Finally I went to Chrome and the game worked fine. My computer is kept up to date and there is no reason for certain games to act this way. I played yesterday and when I go to play tomorrow they might work just fine. I have windows 10 and I am using Microsoft Edge. When I need to play Java games I go to Firefox. Flash doesn't work for me there anymore. I have tried all of the suggestions but Adobe Flash crashes every time I go there. Mozilla is no help. They keep telling me that they will contact me about my problem but they haven't yet and I have reported the problem to many times to count. It seems that I am not the only one having this issue.

That is YOUR computer telling you, your flash cache needs to be emptied.
I would suggest using a program like Ccleaner (free) and doing a good cleaning.



Hi "CAGal1950";

Thank you for the above solution. This morning when I went to play, everything worked fine until it was time for the puzzle to load. At this point, all I got was a black screen. I immediately came to the forum where I saw your response to the "Origianl Poster's" issue. I then logged off POGO and activated my "CCleaner's", which by the way I also learned from you, then re-started my computer. When I logged back onto POGO and loaded Crossword Cove, everything worked perfectly. Again, thank you for sharing your vast computer knowledge. ;)

5. You should be able to play a new puzzle without repeating the one you already finished.


This works for me too but because I (you) have actually completed the puzzle, no prize spinner will come up. It shows score and no tokens so you go on to the current puzzle.
If it has a green check mark, ignore the message that says you have a saved puzzle and will lose progress and just click new puzzle and play.
