He’s friendly, he’s helpful, and he’s awesome! This week’s Munzee Player of the Week Spotlight shines on player KFL200, also known as Ken Fairhurst! Ken’s one of our many amazing UK players, and we’re lucky to have him as a part of our worldwide Munzee community. Ken’s been a pillar in our international community and an excellent resource for new players. Because of this, we’ve decided to introduce him to all our players, new and old!

How long have you played Munzee?
How did you find Munzee?
Like a lot of Munzers I used to be a ‘Cacher. One day I got a comment on one of my caches:
“TFTC, there should have been a Munzee here as well but no sign, a pity as it was an Easter egg.”
I thought,”Munzee – Easter Egg; what on earth is he talking about?” There was only one thing for me to do and that was Google “Munzee.” I liked what I saw so downloaded the app and I have Munzee’d almost every day since.
What do you enjoy most about Munzee?
I love Munzee as it gets me out walking with my dogs, seeing some of the beautiful area round where I live, places I never knew existed if I didn’t Munzee.
I love to be out deploying and seeing the map turning green along the routes I have been, and it’s great to receive emails saying people are capping my Munzees. If I get new people capping, I send them a “thank you” message hoping it will help inspire them to come back and cap some more.
What is on your wish list?
I think MHQ do a great job in keeping the game fresh, there is always something new round the corner, just keep the specials coming!
One thing I would change would be the Mysteries, it is rather disappointing to only get 5 points, perhaps it could be upped to 10 minimum? I would also like to see them sold monthly in limited quantities, possibly virtual, or like the Motels. This would definitely put everyone on a level playing field.
Tell us about yourself!
My real name is Ken (aka KFL200), I am retired now but as my wife is disabled I can only get out for a couple of hours a day. I Munzee with my 2 dogs Baxter & Bailey who love to be out and about, they look forward to their daily dose of Munzee.
At home I spend a lot of time on the computer, planning new routes and working out where to go the next day. I also enjoy the social side checking on all the Facebook messages and helping out with questions or problems where I can, and chatting to other clan members who live in the USA and Netherlands.
I set up a Facebook group called ‘Happy Munzees’ only happy posts are allowed (no negativity, mud-slinging, etc…) which has proved to be quite popular, and recently I set up a basic ‘Happy Munzee’ web site that brings all the Munzee stuff together in one place as a resource for new players:
I would just like to say I am really honoured to be chosen as ‘Player of the week’, it is something I never expected with so many worthy people out there. Thank you!
Ken, we thank you for being a valued member of the Munzee community! It’s not always about the points, and the positive energy you bring to the game makes us a Happy Team Munzee!
