Any activity can be turned into a game, if it meets the right criteria.  Wise words from Dan Cook:

     “If an activity can be learned…

     If the player’s performance can be measured…

     If the player can be rewarded or punished in a timely fashion…

     Then any activity that meets these criteria can be turned into a game.”

Gamification is hot.  I called it out in my Trends for 2013 roundup.   When all things are equal, fun is a differentiating factor.
