Munzee Player of the Week: Jay Piper (ThePiedPiper)

Co-creator of the Franklin Gardens in the US, a force to be reckoned with in the forums, and just a generally awesome guy with a true sense of Southern Hospitality when you visit the lovely “Munzee lands” of Tennessee!  This week’s player of the week is one of the most well-known American players, and has been in the spotlight big time this year with the Franklin Munzee Bash!  Let’s all welcome Jay Piper (ThePiedPiper) to the Player of the Week club!

Check out his interview below:

Who are you? ThePiedPiper  AKA  Jay Piper


 Where in the world do you live? Spring Hill, TN, USA   (15 miles from The Franklin Garden)

How long have you played Munzee?  Just hit 1,000 days on April 27, 2014. I signed up on August 1st 2011!

 How did you find Munzee?

Southpaw introduced me to Munzee on our way home from the Midwest Geobash in Wauseon Ohio. I signed up, created 10 Munzees, deployed 4 (all still active and in original laminated business card laminate) and then didn’t do much with it. One year later at MWGB 2012, I tracked down all of the deploys in the area and capped all of them.  That’s when I was truly hooked, I started capping and deploying on a daily basis after that. The game had evolved so much within that time period making it much easier to play.


 What do you enjoy most about Munzee?

I can’t say I have one thing I enjoy most, as there are so many.  One of the best things is enjoying time with the friends, Tammy (TheRealGigi) and I now call our extended family.  We try to hang out at least once a week to deploy and cap together in order to expand the Franklin, TN Garden.  I will admit I am extremely competitive so I enjoy following their progress in scoring. The Clan Wars have also made each month more exciting, challenging and keeps the game interesting for me.  Fortunately, I belong to a clan (Phoenix Rising) willing to work hard together as a team and we have achieved Chuck every single time with very little change in personnel. (We hope to continue that streak, although we know it could get much harder if we brag too much!).  Thanks to Munzee I now have worldwide friends, which, if we were ever to meet in person we will be able to get along instantly due to the common bond of Munzee. I also must say I like how the “Vardy Man” keeps adding new and exciting things to the game and how much he has transformed it over the last year. Thanks Rob!

What is on your wish list?

Besides Mysteries being a minimum of 10pts (Thanks Scott)?


(Editor’s Note: That’s some “monkey on your back there, Jay. May wanna lay off the Mysteries!)

I would like for the Franklin Munzee Bash to become one of the must go to events of the year and possibly a mega event.  We are already making plans for April 18th, 2015!

Tell us about yourself!

Professionally I am a computer consultant (Network Engineer, SQL DBA) that works with manufacturing firms all over the world. I work from home and have to travel about 25% of the time, which gives me plenty of opportunity to cap and deploy when in other areas. I am a Dad to three teenagers (a son 18, a daughter 15 and a step daughter 16) which makes life interesting every day. Was a Scout leader for many years until my son became an Eagle Scout in 2011.

Munzee Player of the Week: Reimar Kuepper (ReMiKu)

Quiet, persistent, and amazing… Words to describe the world’s “#2” Munzee player, and the second player to ever hit 1 million points!  Top spot on the leader boards isn’t anything to shake a stick at, and neither is this week’s POTW!  We’re happy to honor one of the biggest international players, Reimar Kuepper, as Player of the Week!  As we wish ReMiKu a Happy-Happy Birthday this week, let’s all get to know this unstoppable Munzee hunter through the interview below!

Who are you?
My Name is Reimar Kuepper but most people know my by my nickname ReMiKu.
Where in the world do you live?   
In Cologne, North-Rhine-Westafalia, Germany. I’m proud that I can say in one the the Munzee capitals in this world 😉 Have a short look here:
How long have you played Munzee?  
Today, as I write this, for 947 Days. It was the 4th of October in 2011. Feels like a few weeks ago.
How did you find Munzee?  
I found an article in an online mag about app. Too sad that I don’t remember which one it was, I would love to have a copy of that article. I used to be interested in other scavenger hunts where you get dirty and stuff (somehow I don’t remember the name of that game anymore), so this article was pretty interesting. After downloading the app I saw that there were a few Munzees in my area. I kept it in mind and a few days later I did my first capture. Tough times back in the beginning when I drove miles for a single Greenie. As you can see in the Munzee Map of my Hometown that I don’t have to go very far now (but I still do) 😉
What do you enjoy most about Munzee?
Hmmmh…the first thing that comes into my mind is the “social part”. Interacting and communicating with other people through this platform/game is a great booster for me. The Clans, and the Clan Wars of course, completed this for me. We found a game where we can go together, have fun, create fields and have a little “after work” drink. The Clan where I belong to (Check out Clan Cologne here: ) is a collection of a weird bunch of people that enjoy the game as much as I do. Nevertheless lots of other players (and now friends of mine) in different cities, states or countries complete my “Munzee world”. And yes…..the game itself is also pretty catchy.
I almost forgot: Munzee events! Events are very cool! Of course I love meeting other fellow Munzers out there in the field, and definitely like meeting them at events. The last European Meeting in Cologne was a huge success and I’m thankful for the organization of that event that I have the possibility to meet so many other Munzers in one place. BTW…the next European Event is coming up and I (and lots of others) will be there as well. Please check this link for additional information:
What is on your wish list?
Because I deploy quite a lot of Munzees, I would love a organizing tool or a section on the Munzee website where I can have a better overview of my deploys (Editor’s note: Very Interesting Suggestion…Hmmmm…). Due to the amount of munzees I sometimes have to repair them and I would love to have a little online help to mark them and create some kind of “repair tours”. Also Statistics works great for finding out which Munzee has been frequented by who and how often etc… I surely want more badges…I really like the badge idea to earn something special. Can’t wait for territory badges like countries, states or cities.
Tell us about yourself!
Well….I’m 42 years “old” and addicted to this game. I really like to set goals for me and try to achieve them…in a easy and funny way. I’m surely passionate when it comes to achieving my Munzee goals, but fun ALWAYS comes first. I really like enjoying what I’m doing. If you’re in Cologne and need a little guidance…drop me a line on FB or thru the Munzee Messaging system! I’m glad to show you around or give you some additional info regarding my area.
Other hobbies include;
Travel, travel and sometimes travel. I really like to see new places and meet the people who live there. So always keep an eye open…you never know if I’m just around the corner 🙂
I would really like to thank the creators of Munzee for giving us such a fun game.  In good times or bad, they push forward with their ideas and goals for Munzee, giving players the opportunity to play, and every day is a good Munzee day. Special Thanks of course to all the players in my Clan, my Area and my Munzee friends! Without you this game hasn’t been so successful to me as it is right now!
Even though today is all about you, ReMiKu, thank you so much for the kind words!  Now let’s have everyone wish you a wonderful week by getting the Munzee community to capture your Social below!
