We're giving away 100 games a day to our users to celebrate our 5th birthday!

For the last 5 years we've been doing our best to bring the best games in history to your home computers. Now, we're celebrating our birthday, and we want you--our users--to have a blast! That's why for the next five days we'll be giving away 100 games a day via our different channels (the forums, social media, YouTube). The details of each giveaway will be revealed on day to day basis, so make sure to drop by daily and see what are we up to.

So, we heard you like puzzles and trivia? Let's have some more of that, shall we? Today, our giveaway is once again forum-based, but requires some gaming knowledge and puzzle-solving skill. We present, the B-Day crossword puzzle! 5th B-Day Crossword Puzzle

As you may have noticed, this isn't your regular crossword puzzle. You'll need not only guess what the correct words are, but also where do they go in the diagram. If you manage to get enough of them right, you'll be able to figure out the secret password. Send an email with the said password with the subject line CROSSWORD to Out of all the people who do this, we'll pick 100 users who will be sent a $9.99 gift-code.You have time until tomorrow, that's Friday, October 4, at 2:59PM GMT to send us your answer and enter the giveaway, as at that time we'll be moving to another communications channel with a new set of rules.

Have you participated in one of our 5th birthday contests, but are still waiting for its conclusion? We're a bit overwhelmed by the number of entries, as this is the ongoing biggest series of giveaways in the whole of history. Please be patient, well sort it all out, eventually, and everyone who was lucky enough to win something will be notified. Sorry for the delay!

I took a guess, hope it works ;)
Sent, hope I got it right :P
SCPM: Actually 2 of the games down in the middle of the puzzle are the same number of letters, 11. Threw me off a bit putting one of them in the wrong place. >:3
Ah, true. Missed it, due to incompatible letters. Allow me to edit my previous post then.
Thank you :)
Pretty crazy but I think I got it right ;)
Message topic line?
Meh, too hard. :p
Aw shit, re-checked and I got it wrong :/
After this, it's time to do something that requires less work so I can go back to feeling smart.
XYCat: Message topic line?
Nevermind. :-)
If only I had played more games from GOG I would have been on time. Then again, don't you need to have bought a lot of games already and played them to be able to solve the puzzle? That means that people who contributed the most to GOG (and spent time playing the games) have the highest chance of winning. Which seems fair.
Senteria: I would have been on time.
Random draw actually, so it's not the first 20 or something. You do have some time to find the correct answers, so don't give up.
Drives me nuts that they don't make it more obvious which clues go to which sets of boxes. I got half of them and then guessed the password, and used that to guess a few more titles. Ultimately I guessed all but 2 titles.

Since things seemed to fit, I sent in my guess.

Too hard for me
I don't have enough gaming history for this one.
Well good luck to all.
No chance for me. So, giving up...
