After studying inventors, we used the Caine's Arcade Video to springboard into inventing our own cardboard inspired games. We have created games for several years now and each year the experience gets better for our kids. I have learned from past years a process that works and the kids have learned things by playing other kids' games from previous years. This year we focused on game directions more than we have in the past. One big improvement this year was the usage of low-heat glue guns. Using hot glue improved the quality of our games and helped to speed up the making process.
