Gameify

derivation; verb
Turning tedious work into a game.
 
By adding suffix –fy to game, the meaning of the word turned into verb, and it has a new meaning with addition of the suffix. As –fy means “to make into,” the word means something is made into game. Through addition of affix, the new word is formed.
Etymology : game + fy(to make into)
Source : The idea of turning an otherwise mundane process into a game, to give people more of an incentive to do it, has been a hot trend this year, known as "gameification" (The Economists 11/3/2010)
