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.

Grrrr. Are they making up for lost time?! (Those who provide the puzzle, that is,) when Klahn was around before he was like maybe once a month or so, but now twice in two weeks?!?

If you play Crossword Cove every day, you should have noticed that "Sunday Challenge" has been appearing on Tuesdays for the past few weeks. It's still here - just off kilter.

Most games on pogo.com let you track your stats during the game. (How long it took to solve, in game badge progress, how many games Ive completed under 15 minutes, etc.) There used to be one with Crossword Cove. What happened to it?

I have found by trial & error that the time limit for a bonus is 15 min. sometimes I get it, most times I don't; but I do them for fun & don't worry about the time

Crossword Cove • Bonus for Time!

By bonyotony9 » March 25th, 2017, 3:41 pm

I don't see anywhere info about the BONUS awarded for time. I frequently do a puzzle in less then 30 minutes. Today I finished the daily puzzle in 20:30. I am wondering how FAST must I be to get an AWARD!! Come on guys--DON'T be so stingy with the MEMBERS!! Crosswords are real challenges, but be REAL and REWARD normal people. Perhaps some GENUISES can do a puzzle in less then 20 minutes, but I am not ONE!! Anyone knows the rules for rewarding Bonus Tokens for TIME on this game?

Crossword Cove • Re: Friday March 24th puzzle

By skeetspark » March 24th, 2017, 3:30 pm

Yes, I found that odd that there was no clue. You almost had to gill in all the across words to get that word. What I found even odder is that it turned out to be the Spanish Language word, usted. Usted being the formal for the word "you" when addressing a person and you are wanting to either show respect for that person or perhaps to maintain a formal distance with that person. I have seen some non English words used on other occasions but you at least usually know from the clue what language is being used.

Crossword Cove • Friday March 24th puzzle

By jsnow08 » March 24th, 2017, 2:54 pm

There is actually an answer in this puzzle (a downward one towards the bottom) that has no number and no clue for it. This was very confusing and threw me off for a minute. I have never seen this happen before. I just wanted to bring it to your attention. Thanks
