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 • Full Screen

By AuntGrandma95 » May 2nd, 2015, 3:06 am

Not sure if this is where I post this but I must give a big THANK YOU to Pogo for making Crossword Cove full screen. I don't think this has been available before now but this is the first time I noticed its availability. And, yes, it is awesome! POGO, YOU ROCK!! Please know how much I appreciate the full screen games! My computer takes an inch and a half for the header and footer strips for items it thinks I MUST see. The full screen games gives me my full screen back AND makes the games so much larger which is easier on my old eyes. My membership in Club POGO is worth just this alone! Well...I do like the games. :D Yep. That's me. Very happy!

Hello, I was instructed by EA help to post my concern with the new layout in Crossword Cove on the forum. Crossword Cove was a favorite and the only game I have ranked out in. I like that we can now view the puzzles full screen. However, I am very sensitive to motion and the new constant motion of the wave in the left corner where the timer is literally makes me sea sick. It is very distracting. I think we should be able to turn off those waves- just like we can turn off the sound. Please consider this- even if I am the only person that hates it. Thanks.


I AGREE.....I THOUGHT IT WAS ONLY ME

Another way to communicate your concern to Pogo is to write to the editor. Use your regular email address and send it to editor@pogo.com

Don't expect a personal reply but perhaps your letter will be selected for his column. In any event, your concern will be read by Pogo staff.


Thanks. It didn't make sense to me that they did that. I am pretty frustrated about the situation and tired of the changes to games. I appreciate you trying to help.

Pogo doesn't create the puzzles; they are purchased from a third party and can be found in syndicated newspaper columns.

Crossword Cove • Names in Crossword cove?

Try a different Theme. I have a 23" monitor and can't see any wave action other then the breakers on the beach on those themes, but the light on the water in the night scene, I guess could be problematic.
