Game mechanics are not games. They are the rules and principles that guide a person through a series of activities while providing feedback as to progress and performance and delivering rewards for accomplishments.

Game mechanics are deeper than pins, badges or levels, they are mechanisms that harness the power of fundamental human needs.
