Munzee Player of the Week: Nils Blixt (raunas)

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 Nils Blixt (raunas).

Who are you?
Nils Blixt, aka raunas. munzee_riksdagshuset

Where in the world do you live?
Linköping, Sweden in Northern Europe.

How long have you played Munzee?
Since May 2013.

How did you find Munzee?
A chap from Northern Sweden talked about it in a Facebook outdoor hobby group. I downloaded the app and got out to cap all three greenies we had in our town. Since then, I have been a big part of growing that number. I think that we have passed 1500 active Munzees in our town.

What do you most enjoy about Munzee?
I like both getting out deploying and capping on my own or with my family, but I also like to help out people in our country’s Facebook group. I also have  great now to help players in Sweden to cap specials when they are around, bot by placing temporary virtuals for other players to cap or help them out finding the bouncing specials on the map so everyone gets a good chance to cap them.


What is on your wish list?
Besides more local Munzers and a vacation to McKinney, maybe a visit to Berlin or London is more realistic. I would like to see a 1000 FTC badge, and I love when new specials show up on the map.

Tell us about yourself!

I am married to Enikö (kiwipanther), have two children, Astrid (hates being outdoors and has no nickname) and Erik (yoloerik), and a dog. I have just started to work as a prison officer for the Swedish Prison and Probation Service after the 20 week long education to get certified as a prison officer. I was leaving a desk job in the security industry to work with people instead. I also love barbecue with the family (and while watching the barbecue you can always caps some socials). When I have long weekends of work, I find it very relaxing to go to our old croft and chop wood or just sit and listen to the birds. There is always something to do there (the croft is over 200 years old).

Other hobbies include:
Besides tracking and just outside walking, I also play floorball. Sometimes, when I am out walking, I might play other GPS hobbies, but not on a larger scale anymore.

raunas also included his social, so cap away!
