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, Hanna Turunen (Jesnou).
Who are you?
My name is Hanna, and my Munzee name is Jesnou.
Where in the world do you live?
I live in Siilinjärvi, Finland just about 10 kilometers north of Kuopio.
How long have you played Munzee?
I’ve been playing Munzee since May 2014.
How did you find Munzee?
One day, my hubby (FlexPete) showed me a picture of a QR code and asked if I knew what it was. Of course I knew about QR codes, but his question got me thinking that it would be pretty cool if there was a game that is based on finding and/or scanning QR codes. He got excited and started to tell me about Munzee! He had seen his co-worker trying to find a munzee (He found it!). I installed the Munzee app right away, and we headed to the town to find some munzees. After a couple of days, he created his own account.
What do you most enjoy about Munzee?
I really like that Munzee gets me outside and exploring new places. I also like chasing Mythological Munzees and other temporary specials. But what I really enjoy the most about Munzee is meeting other players and going munzeeing with friends. I try to attend every event in Finland and love to host events as well. Munzee really brings people together and a lot of lifelong friendships can be made.
What is on your wish list?
I hope that I can travel more in the future; attend events abroad and meet more players and makes. Maybe Munzee could add a Munzee piggy bank to their merchandise. I could use it to save for a trip to the US. A Coexist Host badge and more fitness badges would be great. You cannot have too many badges, right?
It might also be time for a new nomad, maybe a “Fortune Teller” nomad that bounces on Zodiac Munzees. I would also like to have a “NEW” filter option in the app that would show all new deploys from the last 7 days.
Tell us about yourself!
I’m a postal worker in a mail sorting centre in Kuopio. I’m married, and we have a 2 year old Coton de Tulear, Jasper. He doesn’t always understand why “mommy” has to stop by every light pole. I enjoy walking in nature and loooove to bake. I listen to music when I’m doing something, so almost all of the time. My friend has inspired me to take more photos, and it’s really fun. I think I might have an eye for photography *grin*.
Other hobbies include:
In addition to Munzee, I love postcards. I’m a semi-active postcrosser. Postcards always make people smile.
Any last words?
thank you to all who nominated me! I’m very surprised and honored to be nominated. Best early birthday gift ever!
Remember to cap it if you can!
Jesnou has included some socials, so cap away!
