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 • Cannot Submit Completed Puzzle

By Guvna2 » July 10th, 2014, 1:50 pm

The 7/10 puzzle

Upon submitting the puzzle, something changed the first letter of 47 Down from "J" to "H", thereby claiming that one word was incorrect and the puzzle is not finished.

Come on people. I pay for this stuff!

Using Safari, Google or Chrome it loads to the green bar and the POGO with the bouncing balls and stays will go no farther.
Started having trouble with this game back about May and I can't play it at all now on any browser.
Appreciate any help. I have used all the things I know to do..I delete cookies, browser cache,flash cache, and java cache each morning and reboot my computer.

Crossword Cove • Re: check marks on calendar page

By Trekker47472 » July 8th, 2014, 4:03 pm

It indicates an uncompleted puzzle.... Or something.

"But I finished those puzzles!" you're saying.

"I got points and everything!" you're saying.

Which, yes, yes you did. Just that there's a hiccup in the game that makes it not entirely realize this. If you did finish that puzzle, got the points, and everything nothing is really being impacted other than this visual.

When you start a new puzzle you likely get a message saying you'll lose a previously saved puzzle and you ignore this warning because you *know* you finished the previous puzzle(s). Well, next time tell it you want to play the saved puzzle and you'll be taken back to your previous, completed, puzzle. Click "finished" again, you'll get another jackpot spin and points and be taken back to the menu where you can go to the calendar and select the newest puzzle.

SUCCESS!!!!!!!! Thank you so much! Such an easy fix for a pesky problem - who knew?!?! :lol: I've never adjusted the screen like that before. When I need to make whatever is on the screen larger I usually press Ctrl then use the wheel on the mouse. Learn something new everyday... :D

Thanks again!

While in IE10 select the Tools Gear and you will see Zoom (percentage). It should say 100%. If it doesn't change it.
Pogo games are made to play at 100% Zoom, not 95% or 125%. When you do this the "active" spot for your mouse will be off. As you described very accurately. As far as you Java..if it is working the there is no need to worry. It was just an observation on my part. ;)

Adjust my Zoom? I don't mean to sound ignorant but, what is that? Also, I know a Java version is not indicated on my system info however it has to be there. I'm able to play all other Java games on Pogo with no problem at all. :?

Sounds like you Zoom is set at something higher them 100%. Try resetting it and see how your game works.
Oh, and you're Java isn't enabled in IE10. You may want to check in Manage Add-ons to enable it. ;)
