Munzee Player of the Week: Kathy Wade (Way Too Far, Aufbau, Unicorn Hater, Former Munzee Queen of New Jersey)

Munzee supports family in every sense of the word. Whether you take your kids to Munzee with you, your partner begrudgingly goes along or you take your pets on a munzee walk, we love to see families come together. Every so often though that begrudging partner gets a spring in their step and takes over as the household munzer. This week’s Player of the Week is Kathy Wade and although she only started playing with her husband on a double point weekend, she has become hooked and is now a key player in our community. You may know her as Way Too Far on social media, so read on to learn more about Kathy!

munzee wildwood (2)Who are you?
OMG! It’s finally my turn!!!!!!! I am Kathy Wade, aka Way Too Far, aka Aufbau, designated unicorn hater and formerly Munzee Queen of NJ.

Where in the world do you live?
I live in a tiny town along the Delaware River – Beverly, NJ.

How long have you played Munzee?
As of today (10/15/14) my account is 1,095 days old. Missed the early bird badge by just a few days.

dog beachHow did you find Munzee?
My husband (qwade) actually started playing first and I used to tease him for playing such a lame game. One weekend he mentioned that it was double points and decided to go scan a few. I was hooked and haven’t looked back since.

What do you enjoy most about Munzee?
I love the thrill of clan wars and love munzee road trips with Keebs and Bitwiz. My husband rarely munzees anymore, but girlfriend road trips are loads of fun. On our last road trip, I had to give up my Munzee Queen of NJ to Bitwiz. She passed me, and then some. I’ll get it back someday. I also like to encourage new players by doing special deploys for them and leaving responses when I capture one of theirs about finding Munzee Madness on fb.

book cover meWhat is on your wish list?
Number one on my wish list is to have more more more players in my area so that the specials don’t always land on mine! I also love the idea of an intercontinental blast – maybe one each year with the premium membership renewal.

Tell us about yourself!
As for me – I retired from teaching special education in 2014. During a 10 year hiatus from teaching I worked with the Division of Youth and Family services (or whatever it’s called now) and I ran a substance abuse program in a medium security prison. I returned to teaching when I just couldn’t stand not being at home with my kids in the summer. Retirement beats all of that! This is a closely held secret, which I will reveal for the first time right here. I am one of the silliest people I know and take very few things seriously! Ask me about the adventures of Embly Gernumbly, the Royal Purple Collar club, traveling the south with clown noses, snaking Jenn’s house, and on and on. None of this nonsense would be half as much fun without my partners in crime – the OWLs. I am also a friend of Bill’s and have been for 30 years.

Other hobbies include:
Other hobbies include reading, reading, reading, sudoku, meandering through the forest with my dogs every day, volunteering at the local shelter as a dog walker, greeting every dog I see, and being nonsensical. Did I mention that I like to read?

Favorite quote: “your opinion of me is none of my business” – Judy Ford
Favorite breed: rescued
Favorite dead animal: unicorn

Aufbau was kind enough to share her socials, so cap away!

Munzee powers the Discover Jersey Arts Quest

The Quest is on.

DJAQuest_WebTileAltMunzee is proud to announce a partnership with Discover Jersey Arts, a project dedicated to increasing awareness of and participation in the arts in New Jersey. Through the Munzee app, Jersey Arts has designed a statewide scavenger hunt to detail various New Jersey art locations.

Starting Friday October 3rd between 1PM & 5PM CST there will be nearly 30 locations across the state with a designated QR code. Throughout the month of October players can capture each pin once. The person that captures the most locations in the Quest will win the grand prize. Each special DJA pin will give the player 25 points, but in order to win the grand prize you will have to register with Discover Jersey Arts at this link. If you cap one of the Jersey Art QR codes you will be sent to the registration page as well.

By capping one Discover Jersey Arts munzee you will also be awarded a special badge. Discover Jersey Arts also wants you to spread the word about the Quest and encourage your friends to take the challenge! Use the hashtag #DJAQuest wherever you participate in social media and document each of your captures by taking a selfie at each stop along the map, and share with them via the hashtag #QuestSelfie.
