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.

This thread is about Crossword Cove. Not, Daily Crossword. Two different games. Crossword Cove, with the "old style" puzzles will not be released unit May. Crossword Cove still has the UK style puzzles, while Daily Crossword uses the "old style" and always has.

Has anyone else noticed the old style puzzles have returned in the last few days? Think it started on Sunday. A big difference for sure, and not those long words that make no sense. I am happy to see normal words again.

No one knows more than what was announced, but my guess is that they will stick to one style of puzzle.

Will the current one still be available too? It's grown on me. It's more of a vocabulary test and I enjoy it.

A general description of what they're seeing - a frozen screen, a lagging screen, a black screen, a white screen, blurred images, and error message.

What browser they're using and if they are experiencing the same thing on different browsers

What game or games this is occurring with - Flash, HTML5, Java

Things they've tried with no success - different browsers, logging out and relaunching their browser, clearing browser caches, clearing Flash caches, updating their browsers, rebooting their router

If they've checked browser add-ons and security software settings to see if something is interfering with the game

How many programs they have running in the background


More information usually results in more suggestions.

I have tried to open game, selected a chat room, and then nothing. The game wouldn't open. Went all the way out and restarted but still the game wouldn't open. I have 6 more *** to get the badge but time might run out.

Crossword Cove • Old Puzzle Style

By RedPen6 » April 20th, 2018, 6:42 pm

Does anyone else prefer the old (normal) crossword cove puzzle style? A year ago (approx.) Pogo changed to this new style and I just don't enjoy playing it anymore.

Anyway, for those of you who like it that's fine. I just wish Pogo would return to the old Crossword Cove.

Perhaps you had changed your difficulty level without realizing it? Hard level doesn't tell you if your letters are correct. If that is the problem, just change to Easy
