I know, I'm using my brain as translation memmory right now, but luckily
it's pretty stable at present.

gnome-games doesn't always use gtk+stock items ?
for example:

#. not translated on purpose
#: ../aisleriot/menu.c:205 ../blackjack/src/blackjack.cpp:311
#: ../glines/glines.c:1710 ../gnect/src/main.c:1133 ../gnibbles/main.c:602

Perhaps, I don't know, but I'm guessing it wouldn't be all that many.

I just had a quick look at the po file and there are only a handfull of
messages that are being used in more than one game. And some of those
don't need different contexts as well I believe. 
For instance: 
#: ../blackjack/src/blackjack.cpp:317 ../gnobots2/
msgid "Show toolbar"
msgstr ""


#: ../aisleriot/sol.c:412 ../glines/glines.c:1967 ../gnobots2/statusbar.c:65
#: ../gnome-stones/status.c:71 ../gnometris/scoreframe.cpp:58
#: ../gnomine/gnomine.c:441
msgid "Score:"
msgstr ""

I think it is best not to split gnome-games and go with the solution
Alexander Shopov suggests for the few messages that have
