Munzee Player of the Week: Christoph (c-bn)
The story is a common one here at Munzee: Someone hears about a “new geolocation game” only to see very few munzees in their location, but before long, due to the hard work and dedication of our players, the game grows to new heights. Like many players before him, Christoph (c-bn) has helped expand Munzee in his area and developed a love for the game. Although his family, work and Munzee leave little time for other hobbies, Christoph is happy to dedicate himself to such a wide, supportive community. The combination of exercise and gadgetry are some of Christoph’s favorite things about the game, but don’t take our word for it. Read below to get to know Christoph a bit better:
Where in the world do you live?
I live in Bonn, the former capital of Germany, and that’s my username: “c” for Christoph and “bn” is the shortcut on our license plate.
How long have you played Munzee?
My account age is 1,000 days. I found and captured my first munzee on October 11, 2011. My first deploy was November 13, 2011.
How did you find Munzee?
I read something about a new geolocation game in an internet forum. It sounded very interesting to me, but unfortunately there were no munzees around me! So I forgot about it for a couple of weeks until I captured my first munzee on a trip to Hamburg. In October 2011 there were just three greenies, but have a look to the Binnenalster today!
It took a while to become really obsessed, but once infected my passion grew rapidly.
The first big thing I remember was the “walk the Rhine,” the first power-trail in the Cologne/Bonn area created by ReMiKu. In spring 2012 we had never met, but there were afternoons he deployed on the South end and I captured on the North end of the trail. This was an interaction I enjoyed very much.
In the very beginning of getting contact to the international community I created one of the first munzee art. We coordinated and deployed virtuals to build the premium member star. Think of a huge green meadow with nothing but the star. Today it is accompanied by many other VMs and MVMs.
What do you enjoy most about Munzee?
Munzee is a great opportunity to go outside and have fun! I like the combination of walking/exercise, gadgetry and points. As an early bird I know Munzee from the very beginning! I love the evolution of the game! I love the unexpected! I love specials! I love badges! I love statistics! I love double-point-weekends! I love a 3,500 pts. blast! I love the #SuperChuck! I love the Top3 – but I have to leave within the next few days :-/ Greetings to zeusi!
And – of course! – I love my Clan COLOGNE! My friends: It’s a joyful honor to be part of this clan!
The interaction with many other people, locally to grow the map, or worldwide to trade socials, talk about the game on FB and so on — all that is my pleasure, too! I’m looking forward to the upcoming events in Cologne and Hamburg!
What is on your wish list?
We were very spoiled with dafis Statzee. After the integration in Munzee.com most I miss is the section with all the clusters in the world. How many RMH do we have in Cologne? I don’t know and I can’t count them. I’m sure, Statzee will expand more and more.
Tell us about yourself!
I’m 40 years old, married, have two sons (7 and 5 years old). And I’m addicted to munzee!
I try my very best to infect my family with this enthusiasm. They all have their own accounts, but … 😉 My specialty is to deploy munzees unreachable for some players. It’s not my bad intent, it’s just because of my body size. I’m 2.02 meters (6 ft 7 in) tall and sometimes I look around, searching for the best place to stick a minizee and forget my dear fellow players that have trouble to reach my deploys. Some journal entries remind me — and I vow to improve!
What are some of your other hobbies?
This question is a joke, isn’t it? I’m addicted to munzee — no time for another hobby! The rest of my time is family, sleeping, working.
Is there anyone you would like to thank?
I thank the people who nominated me to the POTW.
I thank all the members of the MHQ for this game and all the fun it brings to my life.
I thank my parents, without whom I would not be at the world.
Christoph was kind enough to share his social with us, so cap away loyal Munzers!If you know a player that should be nominated for Munzee Player of the Week, shoot us a message at iLoveYou@Munzee.com and let us know just why this person is outstanding in the global Munzee community!
