Dear Pokemon Go players. I have news for you if you think you’re really cool and you’re playing the latest in app technology. Are you hell!!! Here are three alternative games to #PokemonGo and how they’re much better.
This game is basically the same as Pokémon Go but you’re not after Pokemon characters. You’re after ghosts! Why is it better than PoGo? Cos busting makes you feel good!
Check out my munzee page. You can get virtual munzees or get out and look for physical munzees. Yes, they really exist! The latter usually in the form of a QR code you scan with your phone using the munzee app. (Go ahead, dload it and scan mine 😉 Each munzee holds its own value and you earn virtual rewards for progressing through the game. You can even own virtual dogs called Rovers, which can travel the world going from player to player. Ten times better than Pokemon Go!
The grand daddy of all GPS based games. This has been around since the year 2000 (shows how slow PoGo has been in development doesn’t it!) . Use your geocaching app to locate REAL physical containers of various sizes left by others. Sign and date the logbooks you find in each. The larger the cache, the more likely it is to contain little keepsakes you can trade ( Making it 100 times better than Pokemon Go). Find and hide trackables items other players will move around the world for you. I have one that’s currently on its 12000th mile!!
So Regina is back from leave. In theory thing should get marginally better at work. Then again , maybe not. But I’ll not be letting my areas suffer. It’s my Sponge I feel sorry for at her new job. I think it may be a bit gruelling as it seems to be quite an intense job with no margins for error. At least it will only be for a fortnight and will pay some way for her. I feel so helpless, but I’m always there. Hopefully that’s something better than nothing.
I’ve deployed two new geocaches and a virtual munzee over the weekend. Of course, Tentmantent was the first to find the one in North Hykeham. Wtg! Got rid of the one I made that’s been sitting in my pocket all week. That’s close by, so I’m beginning to dominate my residence area. I’d like to do another munzee trail. Will see how many I have got left and think of a theme. Gathering ideas already!
So Boris Johnson has claimed he wishes to vote out of the EU. His reasons are perfectly correct as well. Nigel Farage is pleased but naturally David Cameron is bricking it!
Well my Welcome To England virtual at Heathrow Airport seems to be doing very well. I have also invented an idea for a virtual which I can move to a different random location each time it’s capped. I call it the Journeying Jamzee. Check out my munzee page for more.
Poor Sponge isn’t feeling too well. I wish I could look after her as well as she did me when I was ill. Hopefully we can get our own place soon and that’ll become so! Right then, back to work 🙂
Just found out I even have a referral munzee. If you would like to become a munzee hunter and you start by scanning this QRcode, you will automatically get a whopping 50 points to set you off. Download the Munzee app on google store, set up your account and scan here!
Here is what I have done with my social munzee. I have printed a few off for laminating tomorrow and will be hiding them about the place. Wonder if they bring in more caps.
As followers will know I recently took up the outdoor pastime known as Munzee. If you have never heard of it or need an excuse to get off your arse, check out this page for a basic briefing. There is also a special mention of a series of Munzees that I have hidden locally.
Had a very productive day today. I’ve done my Zombie Apocalypse munzee series at long last. Timed it just right as well, I finished off just in time to catch the last bus home with only seconds to spare. Been up till now (3:40am) editing all their descriptions. Well, must go sleep now or I’ll be zombified myself in the morning 🙂
I’ve now been an active Munzee player for a few weeks, and have been trying to weigh up whether is is better than geocaching.
Pros- Munzee is largely digital. It contains no more physical presence than a sticky label at best. Logging is done digitally also. You can have one set up in seconds.
Cons- some of these pieces can cost well over $5. Even if they have no physical presence. They may not adhere very long in bad weather. Membership is a whopping $30
Pros- geocaching can have little collectables. It’s slightly easier to understand terms. Stealth caches are camouflaged well. They’re hardier on weathers if made well. Cheaper membership.
Cons- you have to wait for groundspeak to publish them. There are distance restrictions between caches. Anyone can find then steal them for their contents. Logbooks can be ludicrously small.
Either way they’re both great outdoor pursuits!
Well I have been back at work for two days now. The usual palace of grime awaited me when I returned. What is the point of sending in a mobile cleaner for two hours to cover a seven hour job? This is the mentality of the idiots that have all the powers at Romec. Itll be much better if and when Cofely take over as I don’t think anybody can be as bad as the current headless chickens society in charge. Regina has be whinging about Craigs skiving whilst on the job, yet I caught her upstairs with him at least twice chatting. I have got a bigger fish to fry sadly. My mobile phone has decided to stop functioning properly and keeps displaying error messages. I have tried everything from empting caches to wiping it completely back to factory settings with no luck what so ever. Vodafone were also unable to help so it looks like its time to buy a newy. Unfortunately this may mean going for a less expensive option on the Kickstarter I am currently backing. But what can you do?
Updated this sites header pic and placed a social munzee on it. get scanning guys n gals. I appear to have opened up a new area for geocachers down on the Scarborough Bros farmland. Tentmantent enjoyed finding the Siblings series which I hid there the other day, and is arranging a litterpicking event next month in the woodland over there. Would have been good if I had though to hide a small cache there also. Anyways, time to wind down for the day.
