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. This week’s Player of the Week is Jason Numbers (Jasnumbs).
Who are you?
My name is Jason Numbers. My gamertag is Jasnumbs (I bet you are smart enough to see why). Yet, I am not just an individual in Munzee. I am truly part of an amazing clan made up of some special people. They are the reason I love this game. They include my core group of Minnie213, Freecyclestacy, and disneyfan4life85. Also, nuttynan, blanchards3, 3Blanchards, iamdeana, AbbyPP, and AwesomeMini3B3. So, in short, if you really want to know who I am… I am a Wilderness Explorer.
Where in the world do you live?
I live in Massachusetts. It is truly a center for Munzee in the New England area. We are constantly getting together for Munzee events with a close group of amazing players. We are blessed to have amazing players like jayterho, Bugeye59, Bandyrooster, Jt75, Sasquatchman, shellshell, utilitymanjoe, tbygate, halyard, and may more (too many to mention here). It is because of these players that I got into the game and enjoy playing every day.
How long have you played Munzee?
I have been playing munzee for 801 days. It has been quite the fun ride to this point. I have seen so many elements added to the game in that time. I love seeing the new icons on the map and get such a rush hunting to add them to my specials. I especially loved the rock-paper-scissor munzee added (with the help 2dld26 a player from my area!) and the urban skins that came into the game with the help of none other then freecyclestacy!!!!!
How did you find Munzee?
I have two young children and at the time we brought them into our family we were looking for activities that would get them outside and would keep us entertained. This lead to us playing another popular geolocation game where people find containers with items to exchange. Well one of these containers contained a qr code. We downloaded a qr scanner which lead us to pick up munzee and we have been hooked ever since. One of my happiest memories was when my 2 year old started finding qr codes in the woods before we did. It was unforgettable the way his face would light up when he heard the beep (this used to happen everytime you captured a munzee).
What do you most enjoy about Munzee?
As you can tell already, there are many things I enjoy about munzee. The two most important is the community in my area and the ability to play with my family. Our events are full of great people getting together to enjoy conversations, capture tons of points and get new icons and badges (I love adding the amazing artwork to my wall of specials and badges). Finally, I also cannot tell you how special the time on the trails have been with my family. The happiness I see in my children while playing and the picturesque views we have encountered have been truly wonderful. Munzee takes you to places you have never been and would likely not have gone if not for the game.
What is on your wish list?
My wish list is to see special ops come into the game. There was discussion about this in the past and I was really excited about it, but it seems to have fallen by the wayside. These were described as individual daily goals to work towards. I even had an idea that I submitted to munzee called the yin/yang munzee. One whose icon could be white or black and it could be changed by the individual capturing it. This could add a whole new level competition within the game and could even be tied into the daily goals I mentioned.
Other hobbies include:
Gaming of any kind, board games, PC games, console games, geolocation games and more
Any last words?
Thank you to all who submitted my name to be player of the week. Thank you to the amazing players and community in my area for building the game and making it special.
