I have read a lot of Michael Dawson's Beginning C++ Through Game Programming 3rd edition, and I have made a few games. I have now ran out of ideas :(

Can anyone share any of your ideas?

Thanks in advance!

That's a good idea, but I am not that advanced yet.

Thank you!

I am still in the console windows, but I am now reading Charles Petzoid's Programming Windows 5th edition. I'll try making a black jack game a little later today.

Thank you!

I have read http://projecteuler.net/ and https://github.com/thekarangoel/Projects before, and they were a lot of help. I haven't read anything on http://www.pythonchallenge.com/ yet, but it does look helpful.

Thank you!

Just saw the edit to your reply with some more ideas:

chess/checkers
hangman
crossword puzzle
some maze game
High / Low Number Guessing
poker
tic tac toe
memory game
battleship
snake game


I have actually made a battleship and a number guessing game before.

The others look great too. I'll try making some of them later today.

Thank you!
You can make tetris
NOTE: tetris, snake and chess/checkers arent easy as they looks

I know, I was going to try hangman, the memory game, and maybe tic tac toe.

I will keep the other ideas for when I get better.
Hopefully soon :)

Thank you!

so true... i still for the life of me cant figure out how to do it
Try to make the tick-tck-toe game with several ways:
-With chars
-With string arrays
-With pointer-pointers

I answered that in my previous reply.

I guess you were typing your reply while I posted mine.

Sorry,
@DTSCode My reply before was wrong^^
I didn't read all of your reply.

That is a good idea, senhor. I will try that when I make it.

Thank you!

Working on the tic tac toe game and ran into a problem.

When I put this in it got an error.
char board[ROWS][COLUMNS] = {{"_", "_", "_"}, {"_","_" ,"_"}, {"_", "_","_"}};

For each {"_", "_", "_"} the middle "_" has an error that says "expected }"

How can I fix it?

Nevermind. I fixed it.

I should have put '_' instead of "_".
board is char, "_" is string. Either change the contents to '_' or change board to std:string

he has a char array which is a string. he could have written
{{"___"}, {"___"}, {"___"}}

I have already solved the problem, but thanks anyway!
