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).
Who 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.
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.
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.
Any last words?
Deploy, deploy, deploy!! Love the greenies, and everybody just have fun!
