For me, Foursquare is really a game where I need to keep up to date with the everchanging rules and points system to unlock a maximum of badges. In my last 2 years of activity with Foursquare, I only gained access to 3 specials, 2 of which I took advantage of which were in fact the same but at different locations.
These are the ongoing Foursquare virtual voyages of Sam. With the recent change in Foursquare’s point system and having changed jobs a few months back (now with many players in the office) my interest to check-in has been renewed. I was finally able to use a Foursquare check-in special at the Hard Rock Cafe in Washington DC and in Baltimore. In Washington I obtained a collector’s 40th anniversary shooter glass and in Baltimore I obtained an All Access VIP member card for a friend (I already have one since 2005).
Having unlocked many Foursquare badges, most of the basic non-sponsored ones, and many that are inaccessible (mostly because they’ve been retired) and now I have to wait for new ones to be created. This was the case with my latest West Coast & European virtual trip which after a while each earned me 10 badges bringing my total to 170.
