Carification – Looking Back

Hi, I’m Andrzej. I am a blogger and speaker on Carification. Now, I’m sure most of you know what this is all about, but I thought I would start with a little look at what carification is and a short history lesson on it. So, first off, what is Carification?...

Teams and Competitive play.

Last week there was no post from me. The reason was that I was working on rebuilding my games review site (www.yetanotherreviewsite.co.uk). Take a look, you may like it!! Anyway, it got me thinking, as I looked over the games we have reviewed over the years. What do people like...

A Question of Motivation

A very quick blog this week, whilst I work on a few deeper ones (possibly) An argument that is pretty constant in Gamification, is that of Extrinsic vs Intrinsic motivation / rewards. Things like badges, points and even money vs altruism, autonomy, status and more. The general consensus, based on...

Question 3

When is gamification not gamification?

A few different conversations this last week have triggered a little built of thinking. This usually leads to me brain dumping a blog – and this is no exception. Don’t expect to find any answers here! The first questions was – should you tell people that they are using a...
