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: Filled month badge not awarded

By ACEY146 » June 1st, 2015, 10:44 am

I had the same problem. (I was getting black check marks too, even though I completed the puzzle ....) To get around the problem, instead of clicking on the "play today's puzzle" button, I clicked on the "calendar" button and selected my new puzzle everyday from the calendar. Haven't seen a black check mark since starting to do this.

Crossword Cove • Filled month badge not awarded

By IzabellaLiszt » May 31st, 2015, 4:08 pm

I have completed all puzzles for the month of May, yet I was not awarded the Filled Month Badge. Was it because I had to do some puzzles over because of the black check marks? I did do them over, even tho I had finished them correctly the first time, and now they all do have green check marks, tho I still wasn't given the badge. Is this going to happen whenever I try to attain this badge?

Crossword Cove • Across The Sea Badge Problem

By mlambert99 » May 29th, 2015, 6:28 pm

Hey,

I'm working on this badge and either it's not working or I did something wrong.

I completed the entire puzzle without using any hints and I did not get credit for anything.

You're supposed to solve 20 across words.

Any ideas?

I'm no expert, but I do have a Mac and use Safari and have experienced the same issue many times.

Try clicking on the game area while it's loading.

Safari has ClickToPlugin and ClickToFlash extensions: ClickToPlugin prevents Safari from launching plug-ins and replaces every plug-in object by a placeholder labeled by the name of the blocked plug-in (fig. 1). Clicking this placeholder loads the original plug-in object. Which plug-ins are blocked can be specified in the preferences. In addition, ClickToPlugin features several control lists to specify objects that should never be blocked or that should be hidden from view instantly. Check the Settings section for complete details on customizing ClickToPlugin.

Also check out ClickToPlugin Help: https://hoyois.POGO.io/safariextensio ... help.xhtml

Hope this helps...

I seriously doubt that he reads the Pogo forums since he doesn't even work for Pogo.

Pogo is subscribed to a syndication service that sells crossword puzzles to multiple sources, including at least one newspaper. He works (or worked) for that company.



Yes I know that. It was tongue-in-cheek and a response to the screaming and gnashing that went on about his puzzles being too difficult.

Don't know what happened, but I hope he is well, but I do hope he is gone from the lineup. I don't expect the puzzles to be easy, but his puzzles are obscure. I always hate to see one of his puzzles pop up. The new guy's puzzles are challenging, but not completely frustrating.

Bob Klahn's puzzles are the only crosswords i do. I hope he's still in the lineup.

I did try the new guy's puzzle. I liked it (similar to Klahn) and i will definitely watch for his again.
