A total of 1100 students, which consist of 552 girls and 548 boys,from the 6 state schools (Mehmet Hüsnü Özyeğin, Erol Güngör, Süleyman Türkmani and SırrıKardeş Primary Schools, and Cacabey and 23 Nisan Secondary Schools) affiliated to the Ministry of National Education in the province of Kırşehir participated in the research with the method of purposeful sampling. A 14-item digital game addiction scale developed by researchers was used in the study. Percentage, frequency, factor analysis and Chi-square test were used in the analysis of the data. As a result of the conducted analyzes, it is seen that digital game addiction scores change according to gender and age. According to gender, there is a significant difference between girls' low addiction levels and boys' low addiction levels. It can be concluded that addiction level of boys is higher than the level of girls. According to the age, it is seen that the average and high level game addiction decreases while the low level game addiction increases as the age increases. In brief, the level of game addiction decreases as the age increases and this result is not accidental but significant. One of the most effective ways to cope with digital game addiction is to direct children to physical activities. However, parents, teachers and students should be informed about digital game addiction.
