Player of the Week: Stacy Thompson-Numbers (Freecyclestacy)
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 Stacy Thompson-Numbers (Freecyclestacy).
Who are you?
Stacy Thompson-Numbers, Munzee name – Freecyclestacy
Where in the world do you live?
In Central Massachusetts, right outside of Worcester.
How long have you played Munzee?
I have played for just over two years, starting in July 2014.
How did you find Munzee?
I was searching for some family friendly activities that would get us outside and exercising. I found a couple of geo-location games, one of them being Munzee. We live in a very active area, so we were hooked from the start!
What do you most enjoy about Munzee?
There are a lot of things I love about Munzee! I munzee with my husband, kids, brother, mother, and sometimes, my dad will tag along. We love spending this time together and have created lots of memories. I also love being part of the Munzee community. Those local to me are simply amazing people. They are always willing to share their Munzee knowledge, putting on events so we can socialize and get points, and are just really nice people in general. Also, I love the new places which Munzee has brought me. I would never have found these places otherwise. Finally, I like the exercise I get while Munzeeing. There is nothing like getting out in nature, capturing and deploying with family, all while getting some exercise!
What is on your wish list?
I would love to take an RV road trip cross-country with family, visiting all of the Munzee hot spots along the way, eventually getting to McKinney to meet those that make this game possible. I am sure this would make for lots of laughs and family memories along the way!
Tell us about yourself:
I am a stay-at-home mom of 2 kids, ages 3 and 1. They are the focus of my life, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. My 3-year-old loves finding munzees and is great at spotting them! Sometimes he finds them before me! I often name my munzees after family memories or funny things my kids do. I have lived in Massachusetts for nearly all of my life and enjoy the peacefulness it brings. Family is very important to me, and I love spending time with them, be it Munzeeing, caching, grilling, playing board games, or vacationing at Disney!
Other hobbies include:
Along with Munzee, I also play WallaBee and cache. I love being outdoors in nature, gardening, backing with my kids, crafting, grilling, playing board games, and anything Disney-related!
Any last words?
A huge thank you to those that nominated me. This is a huge honor, and I am so appreciative. I also want to thank everyone in my local Munzee community. You are all such amazing people, and I feel lucky to be part of this community — Thank you!! Play the game however you can, and have a great time doing it! Munzee on!
