Player of the Week: Jacques Couillard (JacquesC)
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 Jacques Couillard (JacquesC).
Who are you?
My name is Jacques Couillard therefore my username is JacquesC.
Where in the world do you live?
I live in the suburb of Quebec City in Canada.
How long have you played Munzee?
I registered for Munzee in September 2011, but I have been much more active since June 2014.
How did you find Munzee?
It was on a caching forum that I heard about Munzee for the first time, and I was immediately excited by the game: find, scan, and go to the next. As at the time I did not have a smart phone, I have to wait some time before actively playing. Today, I am not longer separated from my smart phone and Munzee.
What do you most enjoy about Munzee?
Munzee makes me move and get out of my house. If I am passing through a place, I usually make sure to find at least one munzee or leave my trace by deploying one of the small square codes in my possession.
What is on your wish list?
I would like there to be more active players in the area near my home to bring more diversity into the game.
Tell us about yourself!
I am a computer analyst. My wife and I have a pretty 10-year-old girl. She sometimes accompanies me on my ride and tries to find the little square codes before me which she does quite well. I walk a lot, run on occasion, and cycle very regularly. In the roughly nine months that I have used an activity tracker daily, I have lost about 35 pounds.
Other hobbies include:
During the holidays, we regularly camp in our Westfalia. Like many people of my generation, I play video games. I do electronic experimentation using microcontrollers: Arduino, Raspberry, and others.
Any last words?
I sincerely thank the entire team of Munzee, and I encourage them to continue the good work to maintain, diversify, and increase this great game.
JacquesC also included some socials, so cap away!
