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 • Can't Play Crossword Cove

By carnation332 » April 26th, 2017, 4:14 am

I've been having the same trouble (Cripes!) Edge, Chrome, Firefox make no difference. Clearing cache makes no difference. Can play Word Whomp, but not Crossword Cove.

Bob causes more stress than in-laws coming for a visit. Not sure where he is from but he sure is not from earth. I use the hint button for half the answers and all my star power ups and still invent new curse words to say. Once a month is all I can stand of his puzzles.

I did read the post above but closing out & going back in does not solve this problem. Neither does emptying my browser cache, my flash cache, etc. etc. None of the normal "fixes" (ex. have to refresh to enter games, make sure screen is 100%, etc.) that I have to do to play pogo works. As was reported by pogo, this was from a Microsoft Edge security update. Wish they'd leave my computer alone...everytime they "fix" something it messes up one of my programs.

Pogo is aware of the problem with Edge and keyboards in Word Games. If you go to the NEWS you can read the post.

I have had the same problem. I found if there is an ad on top that has an X where you can close it out, was the problem. As long as I go up and click it then I can enter my answers. At least until the next one comes up.

For the last 2 days have not been able to play. I get in to the game and cannot enter any letters to the clues. Then I keep getting a message saying Game did not load properly clear temporary internet files. I have done this numerous times and still get the same message. Please help!

After reading about the Edge update, I tried downloading Chrome and it does work. Will use it until either Microsoft or Pogo fix the problem with Edge.
