Columns Crown (コラムス クラウン) is a puzzle game developed by WOW Entertainment and published by Sega for the Game Boy Advance in 2001. It was relased as part of the Columns series of games. A working title for this game was Advanced Columns.

Like the original Columns and its many derivatives, the object ofColumns Crown is to match up jewels either horizontally, vertically, or diagonally in groups of three or more. Very little is added to this Game Boy Advance adaption that was not seen in previous varients of Columns, other than a story and revised graphics. There is also a multiplayer option played via the Game Boy Advance Link Cable.

2005's 2 in 1: Sonic Pinball Party & Columns Crown also contains this game.
