    Try improving your tic-tac-toe game, I don't know how good it is but make sure you have a scoreboard and a seperate infomation screen. Use a clear screen function before freshing the board.

    After the tic-tac-toe stage I think most people try out the Textbased RPG type games. requires more thinking to get anything out of it though and a lot of code.

    Basically what I mean is if the user presses something like 'h' for help a menu would appear, or even just a small piece of text explaning the controls.
