Munzee Player of the Week: Honza Stastny (CACHEEATER)

We’re always pushing our players to grow the map. Although some areas are bigger than others, they all started somewhere and took the hard work and dedication of our players to grow. This week’s Player of the Week remembers when his home city of Prague was just a few dozen greenies and now the game has grown exponentially. We’re proud to announce Honza Stastny (CACHEEATER) as this week’s POTW and hope he continues to help his Munzee community grow! Read on for more about CACHEEATER! 

CACHEEATER 13Who are you? 

Honza Stastny (CACHEEATER). My surname „Stastny“ means Happy and this is who I am.  Whoever is happy will make others happy too. And I like to make others happy! 

Where in the world do you live? 

I live in a beautiful city of Prague, Czech Republic.

How long have you played Munzee? 

Today I celebrate …. oh …. no … 666 days …. wait … no. It was yesterday! O.K. 667 days today. (Editor’s note: It’s been a few months since he sent this. We think he’s in the clear from demonic possession now.)

CACHEEATER 12How did you find Munzee? 

I discovered my first munzee while I was caching. I immediately checked out what it was, but created an account a few months later.

What do you enjoy most about Munzee? 

Tak hlavne to, jak je to jednoduche. Pipnes, publikujes (in english please!!!) Oh sh.. Sorry. I like it is so easy to play. To go out and capture or deploy. We don’t stop playing because we get old. We get old because we stop playing. So I’m going to stay young forever 😉

Thanks to Munzee I met a lot of new players, visited new cities and beautiful places. This is a very quick game and I can always expect something unexpected – new specials, sales, server issues – it has really enriched my life 😉 CoachV and CACHEEATER in COLOGNE EVENT

I am very proud of how Munzee has grown in the Czech Republic, especially in Prague! Prague has become a ‘destination’ for Munzee players around the world to visit, see the magnificent architecture and beautiful surroundings AND cap a LOT of Munzees! When I started to play there were several dozen greenies and FIVE virtuals – now it is one BIG, BIG coloured cluster filled with greenies, motels, specials and thousands of virtuals! All surrounded by amazing architecture and history. You all are very warm welcome to Prague!

What is on your wish list? 

Visit more new places, meet more new friends, capture more munzees …

I would like to see Munzee fix the problems with capping virtuals all around the world using changed location. It is still a big problem. The special icons have change the game a lot and I see all around me a lot of greenies without captures because most players prefer special icons. It is a pity I guess. I wish more “greenies related” days 😉 I love Clan Wars and the way they are each month different. Good for greenies were April Clan Wars. It was based solely on our activity! 1 capture = 1 point. 1 deploy = 1 point. And socials were excluded from these calculations. It was fair for most players and you could see the different results in the end of month 🙂  I would also love to see the daily leaderboards based solely on activity as I mentioned above! It is hard for new players to get to Top daily leaderboard (and get Winner, First Loser, Lucky and Unlucky badges) if other players get thousands of cap on points each day 😉

CACHEEATER AT WORK 2Tell us about yourself! 

About myself … What to write … I don’t know … The remarkable position in which I find myself is that I don’t actually know what I actually know … 🙂 Did I mention I like interviews, but don’t speak english?? …

One of my dreams I had when I was much younger has been fulfilled – I became a bus driver 🙂 But I have new dreams and keep working on these. Dreams keep me motivated.

Other hobbies include; 

I like driving and I like buses. In my leisure time I make the paper buses – small simple models not only for children. Look at 😉 I also like hiking trips out of Prague and traveling somewhere abroad. This year I visited beautiful Scotland, in 2011 I spent the absolutely best month in Alaska. I love calm places, nature and wild animals. I really enjoyed that journey and took a lot of photos. In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.

CACHEEATER was kind enough to share his socials, so cap away!

Munzee Player of the Week: Petr Stary (Czechroo)

Much like our game pieces, Munzee players come in all shapes and sizes. Sometimes even all species? Whether you’re short or tall, or a marsupial, Munzee is the game for you. This week’s Player of the Week is Petr Stary AKA Czechroo and although he may not be an actual Kangaroo, his ability to bounce around the Munzee map has impressed MHQ. Read on to learn more about this Czech born player who currently calls Australia home!

Deploying mysteries at Sydney Olympic Park May 2013 20130505_155816eWho are you?
My name is Petr Stary, AKA Czechroo. “Czech” is short for my home country “the Czech Republic” and “roo” is short for kangaroo.

Where in the world do you live?
I am originally from a picturesque tiny town Úštěk in the northern part of the Czech Republic, but I have been living in Sydney, Australia for almost 10 years.

How long have you played Munzee?
I signed up for an account and capped my first munzee in January 2012, but knew about Munzee 4 month before that. It took me a while to register as I was busy with my university studies. Four months later in May 2012, I went premium.

How did you find Munzee?
To be honest I do not really remember, but I think I discovered Munzee while googling some caching relating stuff.

Melbourne - Clan War End January 2014 IMG_20140201_171016eWhat do you enjoy most about Munzee?
I enjoy the opportunity to get outside and discover new places while riding and sharing my scooter with other Munzers (BlueBearyk). I also enjoy Munzeeing because I can place munzees pretty much anywhere and they do not need to be reviewed.

What is on your wish list?
There are quite a few things on my wish list.
1. Clusters on STATzee – probably the most asked wish.
2. An alternative scanner button on the map in the app – I change scanners quite often. It involves 6 steps to change it if one is on the main screen. If one is in a hurry or there are muggles around a quick access to this feature would appreciate many Munzers.
OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA3. I would like to see my own munzees that are in maintenance mode on the map in the app.
4. Proximity circles on/off in the Android app like the iOS app has.
5. A rover filter in the app and notifications so I know that someone picks it up, drops it off, or to be notified when my rover meets it goal.
6. To test scan NFC tags in the app.

Tell us about yourself!
I’m in my mid 30’s, BMI 21 🙂 and quite tall – 193 cm (6ft 4). That’s why are some of my early munzees deployed very high and they are not “kid friendly” and sometimes even adults cannot reach them. Lesson learned and now are most of my munzees deployed down low, waist and shoulder high. I moved to Sydney in 2005 to study English, but decided to stay longer and study more. I finished my Bachelor Degree in Information Technology (Networking, Systems Administration) in 2012. Unfortunately I have had no luck finding sponsorship which would help me to get permanent residency in Australia. Beside munzeeing I spend a lot of time outside enjoying the sun and Australian flora and fauna because it differs a lot from what you can experience in Central Europe. If you ever come to Sydney you can meet me in Kirribilli or Milson’s Point where the diamond mine is.

Other hobbies include?
Apart from munzeeing I occasionally play Ingress and search for geocaches. I also like traveling and visiting different places. When the weather is stunning I enjoy photographing.
