By asking the question you did, it is apparent you are not familiar even with C++ let alone how to make games with it. Thus, the first thing you need to do is learn C++ programming (or some other language, such as Python, that might be easier to learn how to program in as a first language).
C++ tutorials are plentiful:

First you'll need to learn a programming language. I'm guessing you've never programmed before, so I would suggest something more along the lines of Python, Java or even Game Maker. If you're absolutely intent on using Code::Blocks then you'll need to learn C or C++. There are a multitude of resources on all of these, so you shouldn't have any problems in that regard.
Next you'll need the appropriate library for making games. pygame for example is a good choice in python, and there are a wide variety of multimedia libraries for C/C++. Game Maker has all of this functionality built in.
Once you know a programming language and have some libraries to help you out, then IDEs like Code::Blocks can make your life a little easier by helping you manage the large amounts of code required to make a game.
(As a side note, the forums mangled my original "C++" link. Apparently the forum software doesn't like it when you write C++ as a link. Someone might want to look into that.)
