Munzee Player of the Week: John Boksteyn (Jobok)

All it takes is one cap and you’re a player for life, at least that’s what we at Munzee continue to hear time and time again. Whether you’ve played geo-location games for a long time or a friend randomly told you about it , Munzee is addictive from first scan. This week’s Player of the Week is John Boksteyn (Jobok) and like many of our players it just took a random munzer sighting to get him hooked. Read on to get to know a bit more about Jobok and his Munzee “obsession.”

John Boksteyn (Jobok)

Where in the world do you live?
I live in Medicine Hat, Alberta Canada with my wife Deidra (Deedster) and own two Rovers, Stella & Steve.

How long have you played Munzee?
I have been playing, no, make that obsessed with Munzee for about a year and a half now, so 602 days.

How did you discover Munzee?
I was driving in Redcliff (A small community just outside of Medicine Hat) and spotted one of my buddies beside the road walking in circles. I stopped to check it out. He was searching for a Munzee. It was a new game he had heard about so I joined in and together we found the 1st of four that existed in the area. That is all it took to get me hooked. Currently there are over 7,500 Munzees in the Medicine Hat area.

What do you enjoy most about Munzee?
I like capping, deploying, clans, specials and badges. I really like everything about the game. It’s really fun getting outside and having a goal. Anywhere you go, there’s a Munzee nearby and if there isn’t, there will will be.

What is on your wish list?
European Vacation!!! MUNZEE STYLE!!

Tell us about yourself!
I was born and raised in Medicine Hat and I’m still here! I work as an Electrical Lineman for a local utility company. I am married to my wonderful wife Deidra (Deedster) and we have four grown children and one awesome grandson, Cahleb!
We recently became the owners to two little Jack Russell Terriers (Rovers) who’s names are Stella and Steve who we hope to take on the trail with us wherever the game leads us.

What are some of your other hobbies?
– Caching
– Sturgeon Fishing in British Columbia
– Driving Deedster insane =)
