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: puzzle will not complete

By Midniteblues54 » December 4th, 2016, 4:45 pm

I am having the same problem. I did complete one puzzle and said it was completed but did not get credit for the stars for the daily challenge. I tried again with a different puzzle and it would not give me the last 2 words, ever though the answers were right. What the heck is going on. We only have one day to do these challenges and they can't ever get the challenge right for us to do?

yes, I completed the puzzle got the js but did not get tokens for the daily challenge......went back it said that I had completed
that puzzle and would not receive credit if I redid it. It was activated and everything I ACTIVATE BOTH CHALLENGES B4 I start to play. Do not know what the problems are but concentrating on fixing them would surely alleviate a lot of the problems we are having.

Crossword Cove • Re: Grey Circle of Death in Crossword Cove

By CAGal1950 » November 25th, 2016, 5:16 pm

You are absolutely right, you really shouldn't be seeing the circle with that much RAM. Yes, have a tech check out your system. That "dn.stickyadstv.com" could be malware or cookies. I use Chrome and have cookies blocked.
In the Flash Player Manager, click Storage and then move the arrow to Unlimited. Then click Never ask again. This will lock it into place, until you do a system clean up. Then you will have to reset it.

Crossword Cove • Re: Grey Circle of Death in Crossword Cove

By Hnysucklered » November 25th, 2016, 5:00 pm

Yesterday I played Crossword Cove and had no trouble with the grey circle of death. This morning however it was back. I checked and I have 12gb of RAM. I deleted the flash browser cache and went back into Crossword Cove and before I could finish the puzzle the "grey circle of death" appeared again. I did find out that I have something that does not sound good, I have cdn.stickyadstv.com in my computer. Probably has something to do with being told I need the latest version of Java (which I already have) and the "circle" appearing. Guess I'd better have my computer guru take a look.

You will need to continue to do that on a regular basis. I'm going to guess that you have 4 gb's or less of RAM (memory) installed on your computer.

That is a Flash problem. It means your Flash Player is full and there is no more allocated room on your hard drive for Flash to store content. This is from another thread:
This is from Adobe about the exclamation point:
" It is a sign that Flash is protecting your computer from an application that is asking for more memory than your browser has available. The browser will crash if it runs out of memory and that is a Very Bad Thing. If that happens your browser may crash or your computer may crash and need a restart. Flash now has the feature in which it shuts down an application if that application causes a memory problem."
Make sure your Flash Player is up to date.
Make sure your Flash Player cache is cleared.

Crossword Cove • Grey Circle of Death in Crossword Cove

By Hnysucklered » November 23rd, 2016, 7:07 pm

The last couple of weeks I've been getting the grey circle of death (exclamation point in the middle of the screen surrounded by circle). I understand it's because the browser cache is full. I wonder, I've cleaned out the cache, yesterday twice in about 5 minutes, and it came back. Is anyone else having this problem in Crossword Cove, or any other game. For me it seems to be only in this game.

Crossword Cove • Re: Wrong Letters

By scoville57 » November 22nd, 2016, 3:08 pm

Try using the hint button and then hit the solve button. Sometimes this works, you loose a few points but you don't have to redo the entire puzzle.

Cheers!

Crossword Cove • Wrong Letters

By Chattmeme » November 17th, 2016, 5:48 pm

Very often, I type the wrong letter and am not allowed to change the wrong letter. When I try to submit the puzzle, it tells me that I have a certain number of wrong letters, but will not allow me to change the letters to the correct ones. I end up replaying the puzzle with no score just to delete the BLACK check mark.

Make sure you are completing the puzzle and make sure you are NOT using any hints.

Also check your Profile page to see if you won the badge. Scroll down a bit on that page, click on BADGES (next to "About Me") and see if the badge is there.
