Munzee Player of the Week: Douglas Lynch (5daughters)

The key to Munzee is networking, making connections throughout our global community of players.  But it’s not just networking with friends around the world, Munzee strengthens the bonds within your own family!  Marana, AZ isn’t exactly a Munzee hotspot, however, this does not stop Douglas Lynch (5daughters) and family from “growing the map” and growing the game wherever they can!  The incredible growth and deployments of the Lynch family are why Munzee spreads so quickly. They’re an inspiration to players living in their own “Marana” – grow the map, and make your mark in the Munzee world!  Scroll down and get to know 5daughters, this week’s Player of the Week:


Where in the world do you live?
I live Northwest of Tucson in Marana, AZ.

How long have you played Munzee?
My account shows 603 days old, but I didn’t do any until the middle of last December when I opened the app and saw the christmas specials on it.  After that it was go, go, go.

How did you find Munzee?
A friend of mine told me and my wife about this crazy game almost two years ago at a gathering.  We looked into it and downloaded the app, but there wasn’t much around then and we promptly forgot about it. Now we’re hooked though.

What do you enjoy most about Munzee?
What I enjoy most is the competition in the clan wars. The clan I am on is currently shooting for a top three finish this month. We’re keeping our fingers crossed and hoping for the best, but some of the clans are really tough and it’s a fight.

I also enjoy the badges and specials and I love to see new ones added.

Another aspect I really enjoy is getting outside with my wife and three of my daughters and having fun with them. Without their support the game wouldn’t be nearly as fun and exciting.

What is on your wish list?
To get more Munzee players to come capture our area. We have created a virtual garden at the University of Arizona and are in the process of putting out 1000 mystery munzees along with a bunch of weapons to entice people to the area. Currently my family is about the only active players for almost 100 miles around.

151Tell us about yourself!
My family is the most important thing to me. I am one of the luckiest guys out there to have a great wife who is supportive of the crazy things I get us into.  We have five daughters, three of which are very active munzers, one of them was able to make it to level 100 on her 100th day. Not bad for a 12 year old lol.

If you have seen some of the stuff I post on the FB groups, you will know that I like to make people laugh. For me, laughter is what makes life fun. Although in person I am a pretty reserved individual until I get to know you, then I am more like my online persona. I am a locomotive engineer which allows me to have a pretty good amount of time between trips to Munzee.

Other hobbies include;
We love the outdoors, we kayak, hike and camp when we can.  We also love to travel, going different places is very high on our list of priorities.

Douglas was kind enough to share his social with us, so cap away!
