As Munzee has grown over the years, the game has evolved in so many more ways than any of the co-founders could have imagined. We’ve certainly had our fair share of growing pains, but in its essence Munzee has tried to stick to its core goal of getting people out into the world. No one knows this better than those players who have been with us since the beginning. Though we took a break with POTW for a while, we’re back to celebrate our great players! This week’s Player of the Week is Robert Adamson (wakefieldbob).
Who are you?
Hi, I’m Robert Adamson, aka wakefieldbob.
Where in the world do you live?
I live in Wakefield, Yorkshire UK.
How long have you played Munzee?
I signed up for Munzee in October 2012 but didn’t really get into the game until September 2013. My account is 1234 days old!
How did you find Munzee?
I found Munzee completely by accident. I was out in the North Yorkshire Moors looking for something else and noticed a sticker on the back of a sign post that seemed to be unusual. I took a photo and checked it out when I got home and signed up for my account!
What do you most enjoy about Munzee?
The best thing about Munzee is getting out and exploring new areas. Also, the social side of the game is pretty great, too. Getting to meet new people and meeting up at events or maybe just bumping into a fellow Munzee player looking at telegraph poles! Lol.
What is on your wish list?
I would like to see a Munzee that can be deployed at an event by the MHQ Event’s team and to capture it you HAVE to leave a review/log of your attendance before you get your points for it. It would be good that you can look back on previous events and the fun times that you have had and also other players can read about the past event. It could be called a “Guestbook Munzee”.
I would also like a car window sticker to be sold in the store with a locationless Munzee or something similar. It would be even better if it was the static stickers so that it could be transferable to another vehicle.
Tell us about yourself!
I work in a cinema in Wakefield and like to meet up with friends for a beer in Wakefield or Leeds, when I’m not out playing Munzee that is! I got invited to join the Yorkshire Munzee Hunters back in November 2013, and it has been great fun playing with them as a team and having a joke about on our Facebook group. It’s like they are a big Munzee family (sorry for the soppiness). When MHQ announced that they fourth birthday parties were going to be a big thing, I got together with my clan mates and arranged a party. Little did I know that I would later be appointed the “Yorkshire Munzee Hunters Event Planner”, which is good fun. We have had a handful of events around Yorkshire, including the MHQ Bash UK that I helped Louise arrange. Meeting people at the events is just great and it’s what Munzee is about!
Other hobbies include:
I don’t have much time for any other hobbies as most of my free time I like to play Munzee! I do like to get out walking in the countryside and getting out to a pub for a few drinks with friends!
wakefieldbob also included some socials (one of which is on the Header Image), so cap away!
