Player of the Week: Nancy Kelly (KatzRule712)

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 Nancy Kelly (KatzRule712).

munz1Who are you?
I’m KatzRule712, and my best Munzee buddy is a dog named Angus. Ironic, I know!

Where in the world do you live?
I live in Eden, a little town near Lake Erie about 30 minutes southwest of Buffalo, NY. We are famous for chick wings, beef on weck, and record breaking snow storms.

How long have you played Munzee?
I started playing on October 8, 2013. Seems crazy that I have been playing for 911 days.

How did you find Munzee?
I was out in one of my favorite hiking spots looking for a cache with my friend Tucci. We decided to take the direct route which brought us to the edge of a ravine. I heard a disembodied voice calling to us through the fog, and it was Frank Broughton. We climbed down the ravine and up the other side to find him very excited about Munzee Clan Wars. That very day, I went out on a bike path and started capping, so it is all Frank’s fault 🙂

What do you most enjoy about Munzee?
The number one thing has to be all the great people I’ve met. So many of them have become really wonderful friends. Next thing I love is capping physical munzees, preferable a long line of them. Walking with Angus and capping stickers is great exercise and lots of fun, especially when some of our friends join us. Munzee road trips are also a great part of the game, and I especially love it when our whole clan was able to attend the Munzee Bash.

munz6

What is on your wish list?
Well I wish to have the 5000 greenies deployed badge. I’m working hard on it every day! I also wish for more variety in the Clan War requirements. I loved it when it changed up more: some months deploys, sometimes points, other times captures. I think this gives more players an opportunity to go for higher levels.munz5

Tell us about yourself!
I’m a veterinary technician, a crazy cat lady, and my best friend is a dog. He loves to munzee, but the cats think we are nuts! I’m lucky to live in an area with lots of munzees. A few early players in our area worked really hard to introduce people to the game (thanks GOF and cski), and now the Buffalo area is covered in green (and blue and jewel tones). I have a great family and love playing the game with my mom, sister, and nephew.

 

 

Other hobbies include: 
I love to cache, kayak, go hiking and camping. Winter hobbies include crochet, woodworking, and puzzle solving.

munz3Any last words?
Deploy, deploy, deploy!! Love the greenies, and everybody just have fun!

KatzRule712 also included some socials, so cap away!

Munzee Picture Request

This year, we’ve been focusing on building communities, both within the game and our communities. While some of MHQ’s events can bring these two together, we also want to be able to showcase our player community within our local communities year round. To do that, we need your help!

We’re requesting pictures from your Munzee adventures, including events and just normal, everyday gameplay. We’re going to display these pictures in a digital gallery at both the Munzee Marketplace and the Munzee Marketplace – Cocoa Beach locations. These pictures will also be included in an online gallery.

Please send pictures of your events and activities to [email protected] with the subject “Photo Gallery”. This will be an ongoing gallery, so feel free to send them any time in the future, as well. Once the gallery is up and running, we will choose a Featured Photo every week to share with everyone!

We can’t wait to see what you show us! Munzee on!

Another Message from Louise

This week I have hit 2 very important milestones; I have been working for Munzee for 1 year, and I have managed over 500 events. Thank you to all my hosts, you’re certainly keeping me busy!

I’m really excited about MunzFit events starting next week. It’s not too late to join in, get them on the calendar and get involved! I have a fabulous host badge available too:

preview-full-MunzFitEventHost_720

All the events you host go towards your tally for the multiple host badges and guess what? I now have 15 and 20 times host badges available, I wonder who will be first to get them?

Something else to be excited about are some updates for events. Following on from the MunzFit events we are launching a new type of event account and a new special for you – the Event Pin!

preview-full-event pin

These Event Pins will be on a separate layer (similar to Flat Robs) and are reactive to other Event Pins (minimum proximity 50ft),  but not to other munzees on the map or the event account if proximity restrictions have been lifted on it.
There will be 100 Event Pins in each event account, hosts don’t have to use them all but can if they wish. If the event has a customised icon it will replace the Event Pin icon. They are worth 5 points to capture and replace greenies in the event accounts.

There will be no limit on what else goes into the event accounts e.g. MVMs and Virtuals. There are also new offerings for temporary placement e.g. Diamonds and Amethysts . New prizes available too e.g. Flat Robs and Virtual Resorts. Details of everything available and prices are listed here (https://calendar.munzee.com/MUNZEE_EVENT_PACKAGE.pdf) and are emailed automatically to hosts with their calendar link when their event gets listed on the calendar.

Hosts can also now see their event’s deployed munzees on the map ahead of the go live time as long as they are logged in on the event account. This should make the deploying process easier.

Looking further ahead to July we will be inviting you all to celebrate our 5th Birthday with us by hosting your own Birthday Parties throughout the month. Details on the packages available will be released next week.

In the meantime, thank you for your support and Munzee On!

EXAMPLES: Capture 1 munzee, receive 1 activity point.  Deploy 1 munzee, receive 1 activity point. (except socials)
1 Unicorn is a double activity – Unicorn cap and unicorn host cap. 1 full motel equals 6 activity points – 1 motel cap + 5 motel room caps. Many other examples are possible, but the rule of thumb is simple, if it shows in your capture/deploy list it is one activity point (except socials).

Yes, there are 31 days in the month, with 29 clan play days. We believe in you and know you can achieve based on the number of days in the month!

Player of the Week: Dottie Pratt (daysleeperdot)

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 Dottie Pratt (daysleeperdot
).


FB_IMG_1459936367581Who are you?

Dottie Pratt aka daysleeperdot 🙂

Where in the world do you live?
Just outside of Kansas City, MO in beautiful Greenwood.

How long have you played Munzee?
Since October 2012

How did you find Munzee?
I was attending a large caching event in Iowa in April of 2012. I had noticed a group of people around a sign and decided to check it out, figuring I would find an event cache. Instead, it was a sticker (a BrawnyBear munzee). I scanned it with a QR app and it gave me a link to Munzee. I disregarded it until November 2012 when I was attending another caching event at the same venue with StealthRT and convinced him it was a good idea to give Munzee a try. He reluctantly went along with the idea and we munzeed in the drizzling cold rain all the way back to Kansas City.

What do you most enjoy about Munzee?
Tough question. I mean, there’s just so much that I enjoy! I absolutely find it exciting to collect a new special icon and earn a different badge. Then there’s the road trips – and there have been some AMAZING road trips with friends and family going to Munzee events and such. Plus, I find it comforting in meeting like minded people who understand and agree that it IS fun scanning stickers who have all been extremely friendly. Unfortunately, there is just no way to narrow it down to one thing.

What is on your wish list?

  • To get a job at Munzee! 🙂
  • Make it at least into the top 50 (a reasonable goal).
  • Put my passport to use and travel to Ireland, Germany, Australia, and other new and exciting places. Plus, get some munzees and caches while I’m there, of course.
  • To finally get the elusive “Glitch” badge – that would be amazing!

Tell us about yourself!
I love to travel, and in my opinion, I don’t get to be on the open road enough. I’m also completely fascinated with Tiny Houses and hope to build and live in one in the near future. Then there’s my very understanding husband Corey (BillyBickle) along with my two amazing kids (ArtCrasher and IzzePop) who don’t fully understand my Munzee habit but go along with it anyway, so that’s cool. I also have a rescued Olde English Bulldogge- Tank, who puts up with the props for my Eventzee photos.

family

Other hobbies include:

  • We own 2 Jeep Wranglers and have enjoyed taking them off-roading many times.
  • Camping, Hiking, and Exploring
  • Running
  • Organic Gardening
  • And caching, too

Any last words?
A BIG thank you to all who nominated for POTW – I am honored and super excited because I get a new badge (doing my happy dance)!!! Thank you! Thank you! Also, thanks to all who have places munzees for me to cap. I have seen some amazing places and have a lot of great memories and stories to go along with a few 🙂 . But a BIG thank you to all the local KC Munzee players, all ofwho are amazing and continue to grow Kansas City.
