Player of the Week: Jason Numbers (Jasnumbs)

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).


image2Who 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 weimage3re 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.

Player of the Week: Jean-Claude Labrecque (grosseface1)

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 Jean-Claude Labrecque (grosseface1).


Who are you?

Jean-Claude Labrecque (grosseface1)

Where in the world do you live?
Saint-Hubert, Quebec, Canada, near Montreal

How long have you played Munzee?
I started playing at the beginning. Munzees were few back then. I captured my first munzee on October 2, 2011.

How did you find Munzee?
I used to cache but had captured pretty much every geocache near and far. Then I met another cacher, and he told us about Munzee. I’ve been playing ever since.

What do you most enjoy about Munzee?
I love the specials and like catching them before other players. I also like the clans.

What is on your wish list?
I like new munzees. I’m always waiting for what munzee you will come up with next.

Tell us about yourself:
I like hunting, so maybe that’s why I like Munzee so much.

Other hobbies include:
Hunting and bowling.

Any last words?
I love Munzee, so keep going with new ideas and munzees.

New Badge Suggestions

As you’ve probably noticed, we’ve been adding quite a few new badges recently, both new lines and extensions. We are always looking for new ways to expand the collection of badges that can be earned while playing Munzee. We never want to limit the ideas to our own, though, so we’d like to get input from you.

If you have an idea for a new badge, line of badges, or extension to a current line of badges, we’ve opened up a Google Form so that you can share them with us. All you have to do is submit a name (this doesn’t have to be a thought out name, but more of an idea of what the badge is related to) and description. The more similar ideas we receive, the more likely they’ll turn into a full fledged badge! Keep in mind, we do currently have more badges in the works.

Let’s see what you can come up with!

Munzee on!

New RUM Badges

Land ho! While you’re sailing the high seas and getting a taste of the RUMs, you have to fly banners of your conquests. Now, you can.

We’ve added a new line of badges for the Reseller Unique Munzees to accompany the current lines. These badges are awarded for deploying 5 RUMs from 1, 3, and 5 unique resellers. These badges ARE retroactive, and will appear in game the morning of September 8th and forward.

Earn your flags, and have fun!

Munzee on!

We’ve Reached a New Milestone: 100 Million Captures!

In just over five years, Munzee has grown in ways that the co-founders never imagined. A game that started with the idea of a simple QR code “greenie” bringing scavenger hunts into the 21st century has evolved into a worldwide game with hundreds of icons and an amazing worldwide community. Team Munzee couldn’t be more proud of how the players of the game have grown the map together.

This past weekend, we hit an amazing milestone. On Sunday, September 4th at 13:45:51 MHQ time, the 100 millionth capture was made by Shade. To put some perspective on the growth and evolution of the game, our 1 millionth capture occurred in August 2012, over a year after launch.

We are extremely excited about hitting this new mark and look forward to the future with new ideas and ways to make the game better every day. We can’t thank you, our players, enough for everything you do to grow the map and the community. You and your love and passion are what makes the game great.

Congratulations, Shade, on making the 100 millionth capture, and once again, thank you everyone for being amazing players and friends. Here’s to many, many more milestones.

Munzee on!

Hey Shade, we hope you enjoy the prize pack we added to your account! 😉
