Munzee Player of the Week: Brad Bond (NativeTexan)

A relatively new face on the scene, this week’s Player of the Week has quickly won the hearts of the community, and Team Munzee.  Passionate about geo-location games, and supportive of his local Munzee community!  You can find his smiling, upbeat personality shining on Facebook and around the web, and you can also contribute to his very exciting garden near Munzee Headquarters!  This week’s Player of the week is Brad Bond, aka, NativeTexan.  Read below to learn more about our newest enthusiastic Player of the Week!


Who are you?
My name is Brad Bond. Actually Brad is my middle name. My first name is James. And yes, I hear all the jokes about being James Bond! In the Munzee world, I’m NativeTexan.

Where in the world do you live?
I live in Denison, TX. It is about 45 minutes due North of Munzee Headquarters and is on the Texas/Oklahoma border. Some people might recognize the town because it is the same town Trish lives.

MeJenBradHow long have you played Munzee?
I have only been playing since the end of January, 2014. But it only took me a day or two to become totally hooked! Two days after I signed up for an account, I went premium.

How did you find Munzee?
I heard about it on Facebook from a caching page. Someone posted a question about Munzee and my immediate comment was, “What is Munzee?” I googled the term and found and after looking through the website and then seeing the map, I was amazed at the number of Munzees in this small town. I downloaded the app to my phone and went to find my first Munzee. I also joined some Munzee Facebook pages and started asking questions. I decided to join a clan two days later but I joined a laid back one since I wasn’t sure what all the clan stuff was about. Then on the second month I decided to join a clan that wanted to go for the Chuck and we made it! If I wasn’t totally hooked before then, that did it for me.

What do you enjoy most about Munzee?
I really enjoy getting outside but I have to admit, I am hooked on the points, badges and clan weapons! One thing I am really excited about is going to my first Munzee Bash. I remember reading all the fun stuff about MMIII and seeing the pictures of everyone who attended. I’m looking forward to going to something like that. Another thing that I really love about this game is the interaction between players and the MHQ staff. Everyone is so friendly and helpful and I was amazed how much the MHQ team interacts with the players on social media. I remember the day that my daughter and I decided to make the short trip to MHQ to meet the team. I wasn’t sure if it was appropriate just to walk in but we were greeted with open arms. That was a fun day for us.

What is on your wish list?
It is hard for me to say that I have a wish list since I am pretty new to this great game. But, I think for me I want to make sure I get more “special” icons in my list of icons. Of course, I really want the get the 10K and Centurion Badges. That is my goal for now.

Tell us about yourself!
I was born and raised in Texas. I have lived there all my life except for 5 years I spent in Summerville, SC. I really loved living there but was very glad to get back to Texas. I have four children, all of whom are adults and one granddaughter who is almost 5 and lives about 20 minutes from me. I have two boys who live in Texas and one son who lives in New York. My fourth is my only daughter. She is the oldest of all four. She and I live together and have for a few years. About 2 years ago she decided to try and adopt so we became a foster home. We have had 3 placements in our home for a total of 4 kids. The little girl we have now is 6 years old and she it totally hooked on Munzee! Every time we go into a store she starts turning bottles and packages around looking for QR codes. When she sees one she yells out, “here is a Munzee, scan it”. Not realizing that every QR code is not necessarily a Munzee, I humor her. I open the app and scan the code. She is disappointed when the buzzer sounds and it is not a Munzee. When we are out actually Munzeeing, her favorite thing is asking, “how many points did you get?”, after she hears the ding!

EmmaBut fostering can be a great thing. We know we are helping out some kids that need help at that time in their lives. They are so young and their world has been turned upside down. It is rewarding but as you can imagine it is hard as well. Sometimes you really get attached to these kids and then they end up going back home. It can rip your heart out at times.

Other hobbies include;
Like a lot of Munzeers I also enjoy caching. But when the weather is nice I really enjoy fishing! I live just a couple of miles from Lake Texoma, which is one of the best Striper fishing lakes in the country. I absolutely love getting on top of a school of stripers that are feeding on the surface. Every cast lands a nice fish! But now that I have discovered Munzeeing I have a feeling the fishing will have to wait each month until I meet the clan requirements!

NativeTexan was awesome enough to share his Social with us.  Cap it today!

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!

Happy Australia Day, ‘mate!

download (16)

Happy Australia Day to all our Aussie friends!

For those who don’t know, January 26th is Australia Day, a national celebration amongst our friends down under!  This celebration is similar to national, patriotic holidays for other countries.  Australia takes it one step further with celebrations that reflect the diverse society and landscape of the nation, marked by community and family events, reflections on Australian history, official community awards, and citizenship ceremonies welcoming new immigrants into the Australian community.  They even have an “Australian of the Year” award (click here to learn more).

Team Munzee wants to celebrate all the special Aussie players in the Munzee community!  On January 24th, at 10am MHQ time, we’ll be launching special icons worldwide in honor of our Australian players.  These might be a familiar sight for most Australians, but we want to share the kangaroo around the world:

kangaroo (1)

Here’s the details:

  1. Icon launch at 10am MHQ time (will take up to 2 hours for all icons to show on map).
  2. Icons disappear from the map January 27th (10am MHQ time).
  3. While normal ‘Roos like to bounce around, these little guys are Static! Once they are captured, they will not bounce someplace else.
  4. Only One capture per ICON. AND THEN IT IS GONE FOREVER. First to capture wins the icon.
  5. Points earned:  25 for capture and 10 for the Munzee owner.
  6. Only appear on the greenies!
  7. May be captured if they show up on Munzees you have already capped.
  8. No special map. However, “specials only” filters are available in app and online for premium members.

This is a quick little shout-out to our friends down under, so no special badge for capture, just a special icon for your list.  We hope you all enjoy Aussie Day, and have fun cappin’ all the Kangaroos!

Munzee Player of the Week: Manny O. (DoubleStuff)

This week’s player of the week is a special player that Team Munzee’s very own TeeJayoo had the pleasure of meeting recently!  He’s an all around exciting guy, and we’re excited to feature him for this week’s Player of the Week! Everyone, meet Manny:

power parachute



Are you excited already?  Well, read below and get to know Munzee player Doublestuff!

Who are you? Doublestuff

Where in the world do you live? Grafton, MA USA

How long have you played Munzee? 1 year & 5 months this Friday (Editor’s note: Happy Anniversary!!!)

How did you find Munzee?

To be honest, I came across Munzee completely by accident, and I’m glad I did! I have been a recreational ‘cacher for years. My daughter attends ISU in Ames, IA. We often fly to Milwaukee from Boston and take my in-laws van and drive out to Ames, I would cache at each of our destinations.

american pickers

Have you heard of the show American Pickers? Well our family loves the show. After getting hooked on AP I found out that their shop Antique Archaeology was located in LeClaire IA, just across the Mississippi river. We would drive right by the place 5 mins off the highway. Sure enough there was a cache on location, I made a point to stop on our way to Ames find the cache and maybe meet Mike, Frank and Danielle. We stopped on our way out tons of muggles and they were closed doing their indoor shots for the show. (didn’t see any cast members). On our way back from dropping our daughter at ISU, AA just closed but the cache and letterbox (in the trunk of the 1959 Nash) was wide open as we approached. Since there was nobody around any more I got to look at and trade all sorts of SWAG and Travel Bugs. On thing that caught my eye was a business card with Mike and Frank’s face on it, it said Welcome to American Pickers Munzee and stated to scan the code with a smart phone. So I did, it brought me to the app which I downloaded and back on the road we went. I created my account and the rest is history.

Once we got back to Milwaukee, I found a few Munzees to cap while I cached with my brother-in-law and got him started. As soon as I got back to Grafton I started really searching. There wasn’t that many in the area, about 10 or so. They all belonged to RAWHYD and one was only 5 mins from my house. I capped that one on the way back home from the Airport. I didn’t even notice the virtual at the airport. Now I have 3 virts at the airport and other have deployed virts at the other terminals as well. I started to cap the ones close by and branched out from there. THere were not many when I started but in that first year, the Massachusetts Munzee map grew 1000 fold and I am very happy. Now, I try to grow the map in towns were there are no Munzees, maybe some day I’ll get a cap on one of those deploys. It has been only 17 months and I have capped and deployed in several states, I Munzee everywhere I go. I have greenies in Spain, virts all over the world. I am currently at level 87 and do not intend on stopping. This year I intend to deploy greenies in Switzerland, Germany and the Netherlands. I now Munzee more than I cache and am a more active Munzeer than I ever was a cacher.


What do you enjoy most about Munzee?

Munzee is universal, you can deploy and cap in an Urban setting, something that’s getting harder to do in caching. Anyone with a smartphone can do it which opens it up to any age group and any physical ability. In caching you maybe limited to terrain 1 or 2., which there are not that many. It is easy to play, especially to deploy (just follow the rules, no strict approval process) you can create your own QR codes, you can buy generics for deploy) no more Tupperware or ammo cans. In the winter you don’t have to go on long hikes in the snow, in the woods, I guess the same holds true in the summer (no bugs). I enjoy the competition (clan wars), the recreation (cap while out shopping) and the challenge (getting those icons). I like the how MHQ is coming up with different types of Munzees, quiz, motel, etc. The Virts are the best of all, now you really can send people to interesting places, where a physical sticker, tag or a cache container is not a good idea. I also enjoy when MHQ goes out in the playing field to meet the players (don’t ever loose that part)! I met up with TeeJayOoo and Zoolander and some local Munzee players during their visit to Hartford and I look forward to attending the one in Boston this year.

What is on your wish list?

I would like to see virts have a bigger deploy and cap points since they’re price point is higher than regular Munzee. I have suggested that as the price of the “purchased” Munzee goes up the points should as well.  I would also like to seen another increase (thanks for the first one) in the number of undeployed Munzees a premium user can have, maybe added in incremental parts as your premium membership gets renewed. Regarding premium renewals, is there anyway to make that automatic? I would also like to see a moving Munzee that I can put on my car, or maybe on shirt, cap or bag. It can be a sticker or a patch. that has points. That would go a long way in getting more exposure.

Tell us about yourself!

My real name is Manny Orejola, I am Filipino, born in the USA, a “Navy brat”. My parents are both imigrants to the US and I grew up mostly down south on different Naval bases. I am married with 2 children, my wife is Polish, born in Nebraska. My eldest I talked  about earlier at ISU, and my son is a senior in HS. My son and wife have both started to Munzee recreational basis. I have introduced Munzee to two of my brother-in-laws.  One is very active in the game, and the other is a casual player. Before Munzee I was a ‘cacher. I got introduce to ‘caching through the Boy Scouts, it’s funny how
Munzee also got exposure via Scouting as well at the Order of the Arrow conference. I teach ‘caching to the scouts and adult leaders at the distric level. I am also a Geocaching Merit badge counselor.  I look forward to teaching Munzee to the scouts as well, right now a couple of pages in my Geocaching presentation is dedicated to Munzee.

People sometimes ask how I came up with doublestuff as my name. When I was in the Army, everyone would have a hard time pronouncing my last name O-RE-HO-LA, I would be called alphabet all sorts of names but after awhile they started to get it but it only got as far as saying “OREO” like the cookie. From there it morphed to doublesuff-oreo (Oreo was already taken as username in for other scavenger hunts) then just plain doublestuff.

I used to print and laminate my munzees. This made for a slow process. For those starting out it can be frustrating as you can only cap. Now I print my own sticker munzees and have several different skins depending on the deploy. I have a tackle box with all my munzees in it and a card case credit card wallet several munzee skins for those quick deploys.
Being able to print your own or buying from the store is the single thing that allowed me to grow the map at a faster rate and keeps me moving towards the next level. I would recommend anyone
that has a laser printer to buy waterproof labels and print your own. You will see your scores double and triple in no time. I supplement it with generics, metal tags and magnets from the store.

Other hobbies include?

When I am not Munzeeing or caching, I love to cook, and I am a foodie and will eat weird things (I have tried fugu fin in sake and did not die) I am a Food Network fan. I consider myself an amateur chef. I compete and have won in several local chili cookoffs for charity!

chili cook-off

This saturday I am competing again for the Appalachian Service Project to raise funds to by materials needed to fix homes of our poorest of the poor in the U.S. (Appalachia) I try to play guitar, ukelele and the cahon. I’ve started to do unique “adventureous” things for my birthday. Sky Diving, Powered Parachute flying, Hot Air Ballooning and last year pilot lessons. I don’t know what I will be doing this year, maybe hang gliding, or bungee jumping.

Munzee’s 1 millionth deploy!

Normally, we post our Player of the Week, but this week we’re taking a moment to highlight a big moment for Munzee, and a special player out there.

We’ve had a few players requesting this info and we’re happy to announce our 1 millionth Munzee deploy!

Scott and Daniel pulled the data, crunched the numbers, and found the lucky Munzee player was Nicklas, who deployed “Dammweg” on January, 5th, 2014!


We’ve been looking forward to this day since July, 2011, and we’re so excited that we’ve reached 1 million Munzee deploys.  We couldn’t have done it without our awesome players like Nicklas!  Thank you guys so much!  This is a milestone we’re happy to have reached.

To celebrate our 1 millionth deploy, Dammweg has been converted to a special Diamond Munzee, and Nicklas received bonus deploy points!

Here’s to another 1 million Munzee deploys!  We can’t wait to see how the map and our player community will grow in 2014!

Munzee Player of the Week: Daniel Hammock (Hksfarm)!

If you’ve ever seen a joker get “The Banner Hammer” -then you’ve had the pleasure of seeing this week’s Player of the Week.  If you’ve ever found yourself confused on Facebook staring at a Unicorn, you’ve probably seen something from this POTW.  But if you’ve noticed the increase in amazing Munzee Youtube videos, or ever needed help with something relating to Munzee gameplay/app/etc… then you’ve definitely interacted with this charismatic goofball!  This week’s Player of the Week is none other than Daniel “HKSFarm” Hammock!


Who are you? Hksfarm

Where in the world do you live? Baltimore, MD. U.S.A.

How long have you played Munzee? Since January 5, 2012 (Editor’s Note: Happy New Year and Happy Anniversary!)

How did you find Munzee?

I first found Munzee looking for alternate ‘caching apps. When I downloaded it and tried it there were very few Munzees for me to find. So I didn’t really play much at first until a while later when my friends CodyHollowFarm and DudleyGrunt told me that they were playing it. So I got back into it and have been hooked ever since!

What do you enjoy most about Munzee?

I love the social aspect of Munzee. I first was invited to make a clan with BoneCollector. We made the Maryland Munzee Militia. Popularity of the clans grew so I created a Facebook page for the MMM. As more people wanted in I bought my wife (Horselovernikki) a premium membership and she started a second MMM clan. The social part of Munzee, like making friends, talking on Facebook, and doing clan capping sprees is what I enjoy the most. I also wanted to give back to my fellow Munzee players. So I made the “Hksfarm’s Monthly Munzee Giveaway” group on Facebook:

I love watching Youtube videos, I love Munzee, and I love giving things away, so this was a step in the right direction for me.

What is on your wish list?

CIRCLES ON THE IPHONE APP!!!!!!!!! (Daniel’s Note: You can delete that Omi) (Editor’s Note: 5 minute Ban Daniel!!!)

I would love to see more organized gatherings for Munzee players to get together and chit chat.

Tell us about yourself!

My name is Daniel Hammock. I’m 33 years old. I’m a Taurus. My favorite food is Chinese. My favorite animal is a UNICORN!….LOL Just kidding!!!


HksFarm and Fam!

I usually go with Horselovernikki on my Munzee excursions, but have went solo with clan members on special 4x days 😉 Speaking of which, that should be another suggestion! More 4x days! One day I would love to fulfill my dream of working for Munzee….ya know as a janitor or something, wiping up the tears of other banned users. So basically, Rob’s job.

Daniel was nice enough to share his Social with us:



He’ll be happy to read your positive journal entries as soon as he’s out of BAN HAMMER JAIL!  We’re just joking.  Be sure to check Daniel out on Youtube for his monthly contests at:

Munzee Player of the Week Spotlight: TheRealGigi (Tammy Teel)

If you’ve ever needed a positive, helpful friend in the Munzee community, then you know who this person is.  She’s rallied multiple clans together to rank in the top 20, she’s the admin of nearly 70% of the Munzee help groups out there, and you can count on people like her and our previous Player of the Week Ken to turn any Munzee frowns upside down!  This week’s Player of the Week Spotlight goes to Tammy Teel, though you may know her as TheRealGigi!

photo (9)

Let’s take a moment to “meet” TheRealGigi by reading below!

Who are you? TheRealGigi

Where in the world do you live?  Spring Hill, USA

How long have you played Munzee?  10 months

How did you find Munzee?  That’s an interesting story… I have always loved treasure hunts and scavenger hunts… including the movie The Goonies!! One of the things Jay(PiedPiper) and I had in common and discussed on our first date. He mentioned he liked to Geocache, however had become more involved in Munzee. I immediately searched for Munzee on the web and downloaded to my phone. The next night we went to dinner on the way home he told me to pull up the app, as he would stop and let me cap an Easter Egg on the map… I was addicted at that moment and started searching the area, then state after state to find the seas of green. That is where the adventure began, and my entire life changed literally. Jay did teach me to cache, although considering my RA, I am not always physically able to do the difficult rare finds he enjoys so Munzee is perfect for me.

What do you enjoy most about Munzee?  I truly wish I had enough time to explain how God has blessed my life via Munzee, I will just say every day is a gift to me, I look forward to our munzee adventures each day. each person I have met through Munzee has proven to be an asset in my life. I now have friends across the states and around the world. Jay and I actually plan our travel routes by looking at the Munzee Map. Right now My Most Favorite thing about Munzee is watching Our Dream come true by building the Franklin Tennessee Specials Garden with our friends David, Amy, and Gracie Scarborough and now Jon Haag and Chelsey Hall. Together we have become the #1 Mystery Cluster in North America and still growing, that doesn’t even include the multitude of Virtuals, Diamonds, Weapons, Golds, Motels and Quiz Munzees and now Virtual Mysteries…thanks to the Munzee Family.

What is on your wish list?  Personal Wish list is to physically place a Munzee in all 50 states. Wish List from Munzee ? First on the list is the revamped version of the app for the iPhone, I know Patience is a virtue…as I prefer one without the bugs so looking forward to all the hard work I know is being put into its creation. I have always wanted Mystery Munzees to be worth at least 10 points for the cap with the continued increments of 5 pts up to 50 pts, however I suppose that could alleviate part of the “Mystery”. I also want to see more special icons and badges… I enjoy capturing others Socials including trading for the Rare ones…(Hint Hint…Social-Butterfly Badge?) and enjoy the challenges of the badges. (Editor’s note: Tammy was interviewed last week before some big announcements… Did we “do good” Tammy?!?!)

Tell us about yourself!  My name is Tammy Teel although my Grands call me Gigi. I am a mother of 3 daughters Catherine(foxxygirllt), Jessica (lulubell8709) and Laura(GeorgiaPeach) 2 granddaughters Juliana & Emma Kate and 1 grandson Collin, as well as part time mom to Jay’s Children Ashley(Peanut) and Clinton(TheLoneRooster).

Jay and I both are blessed with jobs allowing us to work from home, however this can lead to no outside world interaction if you are not careful. Munzee has truly made a difference in my life in multiple ways, especially my physical activity level which has already proven to be beneficial for my health. Jay and I munzee together on a daily basis, and it is a great way for us to spend quality time with our teens. Recently with the introduction of clan wars and watching our dream come true of creating a Specials Garden in Tennessee we have started meeting up with several of our teammates (now great friends) and capping and deploying as a group. Then again, I never meet a stranger and can talk to anyone about Munzee as Jay will be the first to attest. I enjoy cooking and used to have a pretty good second income baking and decorating cakes for birthdays, showers and weddings, thus the relation in cooking and cupcakes in my socials. I am very honored to have been nominated and chosen as Player of the Week… and I Greatly Appreciate the hard-work and efforts MHQ puts into making the game so enjoyable.

Tammy was sweet enough to share her Social Munzee with us!  Check it out:
