Gamification is the use of game thinking and game mechanics in a wide variety of non-game contexts to engage users such as solving world problems, in personal and professional skills training and even in managing our household utilities.

Some commentators say gamification offers significant innovative benefits to skills and knowledge engagement and acquisition in many industries including education, business, training and entertainment.
