It is no secret that gamers come in all ages, educational backgrounds, socioeconomic levels, shapes and sizes. The one thing they all have in common is the pure love of the game. For some it is the chase, for others, it’s the obstacles along the way in the form of riddles or movable barriers. For most it is the worlds they can create for themselves and enter again and again.
Fantasy is something unique and special for each individual. An emotional attachment to the story can draw one in many directions. It is possible to be swept to the ancient past to search for tombs and riches or the more contemporary historical time periods of the 20’s – 60’s where one can imagine themselves as wealthy businessmen or fashion themselves as a notorious gangster. The bottom line is that there is a gamer inside all of us, and when it comes to gift giving and dressing up, we all love to show off our favorite pastimes.
