“Gamification” is a new name for an old concept. For generations, games have been used to teach concepts, skills and knowledge. Think Yahtzee, Monopoly and math, Scrabble and spelling, Mastermind, Qwirkle and strategy, Clue and problem solving…the list goes on and on.
People like to play games. Why? Simple: they are fun. Games are also challenging, interesting and engaging. And with the ever-enhancing technology landscape, games are more immersive than ever before. Individual or massive multiplayer online games have grown exponentially in the past few years, and projections only show gaming consumption increasing.

According to the Entertainment Software Association:
• The average gamer is 37 years old and has been playing for 12 years. Eighty-two percent of gamers are 18 years of age or older.
• Forty-two percent of all players are women and women over 18 years of age are one of the industry's fastest growing demographics.
• Today, adult women represent a greater portion of the game-playing population (37 percent) than boys age 17 or younger (13 percent).
• Twenty-nine percent of game players are over the age of 50, an increase from nine percent in 1999. This figure is sure to rise in coming years with nursing homes and senior centers across the nation now incorporating video games into their activities.
• Sixty-five percent of gamers play games with other gamers in person.
• Fifty-five percent of gamers play games on their phones or handheld device.
