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: Change in Format (MERGED THREAD)

By SatanClaus69 » August 18th, 2017, 2:09 am

I've stopped. The new format is not fun.
It's not what a crossword is traditionally supposed to be, for US players.

If you want to use the UK format for Crossword Cove, create Crossword Cove UK. How freaking hard is that?

I'll tell you.....it's not. Either the developers are just plain stoop id or they are trying to kill this game so they can do away with it.

Either way, I'm not happy with it.

I agree with everyone else. Some - perhaps quite a bit - of crossword solving is clues from other UPs or Downs. That has been significantly removed. I don't know why they went to this new format. I used to do Crossword Cove daily. Now I only try occasionally . Super crossword solvers probably do not have any issues with this format. But, as a relative novice in crossword solving, it is a real downer for me.

This is the worst format. I DO NOT AGREE. Something IS NOT better than nothing. Get off your duffs and get a quality format. I know multiple coders that could have had a program up by now. You cannot make us get used to this by sheer apathy. You knew this was coming and you still let this happen. "We are learning too" is not an excuse.

This is the one my wife and I play together. We enjoyed this game nightly and now it has become a point of frustration. Not only because of the set up but because the clues are too vague and some don't even follow American-English. This is not England!

By BlondeDeni » August 17th, 2017, 9:03 pm

I absolutely agree. I know these puzzles were probably terribly cheap but, really, they are terrible. I used to look forward to my daily crossword but I'm so disappointed with these. Please give us back our old puzzles.

Please return to the regular Crossword Cove. This new one is not welcome by too many members. Maybe it would be a good idea to have the old version and the new one. I'll bet you that more members will play the older version. The new one stinks!!

I don't know how this forum stuff works, but I was just looking for a place to voice my opinion on the new form of crossword puzzle, and that is "I Hate it, Please change it back"

I cannot either get the game to load or if it does load I cannot insert the letters. What is wrong with this game?
It has been like this for a week or more, ever since the new Crossword Game was started, which I like very much.

I am having trouble accessing the old crossword puzzles from the calendar. Any ideas?

This new format is terrible. I'm a fairly intelligent person, but have too much trouble solving some of the words.
The old format was fun. Also, sometimes if I need to 'hit "solve" the puzzles gives me an error and when I go back to the puzzle it won't allow me to fill in the word and then can't finish the puzzle. this is one of the reason I'm cancelling when my subscription is over. too many problems

I no longer enjoy this game, used to love to do it everyday. Crosswords are to have cross words not trivia questions. Please change it back :twisted:
