Munzee Player of the Week Spotlight: Lachy Gatland

By now, you know Team Munzee loves it when we’re introduced to players that just have that “something” that sparks the love of the game in all of us.  What adds to that spark is when we hear about our younger players, the players introduced to Munzee early, players who’ll carry the game with them as they grow up.  One of those great young players is McChickenNugget, aka Lachy Gatland.  We’re excited to have him as our Player of the Week, on his birthday week!


Who are you?

Where in the world do you live?
Perth, Western Australia

How long have you played Munzee?
One week over a year!

How did you find Munzee?
I found Munzee out when searching Google to see if there were any games for smartphones similar to Geocaching. From then the addiction started! I created an account and thought of one of a really silly name and began the hunt at a local park! 🙂

What do you enjoy most about Munzee?
I LOVE MUNZEE!!! I love meeting new Munzeers and making new Munzee friends! I also love bumping into Munzeers on field while out capturing and deploying! It is always a great surprise!

What is on your wish list?
Being able to purchase mysteries the same as motels. Reasonably priced, virtual and with a limit you can buy each month to keep and equal playing field.
I can’t wait for when we will be able to host official events! (Editor’s Note: Patience! They’re coming soon!)

Tell us about yourself!
My name is Lachlan Gatland, but prefer to be called Lachy. I am currently 14 years old and born on the 19th of November. (Yes, ironic that the week I turn 15 is the week I have been nominated for player of the week! :D) I am part of a family of four that love traversing the globe!

Other hobbies include; Aviation, aviation photography, sport and finding the occasional Geocache while out Munzee-ing.
I always cycle to Munzees! Well, it is hard to drive a car without a license! 😛 and I love deploying! DEPLOY, DEPLOY, DEPLOY! Grow the map!

When I started the group I was expecting maybe 50 people but we now have 600 members strong and have at least 1000 socials on the group so thank you! 😀

Lachy, we’re so happy to have one of our many great players from “down under” as a featured Player of the Week!  Your energizing Munzee spirit speaks volumes to our community, and it’s only fitting to feature you as our POTW on your Birthday week!  Happy Birthday, and happy Munzee hunting!

Do you know a player that inspires you, or does their part to grow the world of Munzee?  Know a Munzee super-hero, or maybe just someone that makes you smile?  If so, send us a message at with their name, player name, and your info as well!
