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.

Also sometimes the correct answer does not register as being correct and the only way to get it to register seems to be to exit and come back to the game.


This may not be the problem, but make sure your zoom is set to 100%.

You're welcome. I think I did it in 3 games. I used the Hint/Solve as many times as I could. Switching between across and down.

It was a Mix & Match Badge originally released in Jan 2011 and re-released when CC was the Game of the Month. It is no longer available for purchase.

Those aren't "Hints", those are Star power ups. You need to use the Hint Button. You can do Hint/Solve for the entire game and get over 50 per puzzle.

Crossword Cove • Credit for Crab Cakes Badge

By OrvilleCarver » September 13th, 2016, 2:12 pm

I don't seem to be credit for this badge. "201 Hints used" - I've been playing on easy setting with four hints per game, but don't seem to be getting credit for them. What simple thing am I overlooking?

Thanks

My problem is that when I finish a game and if I don't start another one before I leave the game, the next time I come to play, I have to play the same game over again. But if I start the next one and even put one word in, then leave, I'm fine.

Is there a difference in rk pts for doing Hard or Easy? Does hint/solve give you less
pts? I read the How to Play and didn't find any of those answers.

All of the daily calendar games are this way. If they add ranks to Trivial Pursuit, people who are caught up will have to eke out progress one day at a time just like this.

I had an empty calendar in Crossword Cove when the ranks were added so I have managed to reach rank 60. I would have liked to auto-rank but I guess that wasn't in the cards for this game.

Hard or Easy doesn't make a difference because rank progress is by letters and all difficulty levels are the same puzzle for each calendar day. I don't know if the hint reduces rank credit but you could count the letter boxes on the puzzle and see if you get credit for all of them after using Hint or Solve during the puzzle.
