Nirvan Mullick, a filmmaker, came across an auto shop that had cardboard in front of the desk. He saw a boy sitting down, holding a piece of cardboard saying “Caine’s Arcade.” He was in the area to get a door handle but instead, he played in the arcade. He bought a fun pass which gave him five hundred tries and cost two dollars. Amazed by Caine’s work, he was going to make a film about the arcade and bring some people to come and play. George Monroy, the father of Caine, did not expect people to come and play since it was kind of a joke at the shop that no one had ever bought a fun pass.

So, Nirvan made a Facebook account to share about Caine’s arcade and to get people to come. Millions of people saw the Facebook account and wanted to play. Making a bunch of signs and cheering, the flash mob waited for Caine to come back with his father to open the arcade. When they made it to the shop they were surprised by over a hundred people cheering. Inspiring everyone who saw the film, Caine’s Arcade helped other kids all over the world create their own cardboard games.
