    challening programs

    Is it extremely difficult to make a simple checkers or pong game? What programming concepts need to be mastered in order to program those simple games? Two-dimensional arrays perhaps?

    You'll probably do better to have a strong knowledge of OOP, includeing Structures, classes and maybe even class inheritance.
    2D Arrays will also be needed for things such as displaying the board etc.

    It's really up to you, but this is what I'd recommend you learn either while your doing it or before starting. You could do it without these things, but it would be much easier to use them IMO.
