Tell Us About your Connection with Gamisodes and Digital Collecting

1) What do you like most about being an Ambassador?
I couldn't be more thrilled to be a Gamisodes ambassador. When I first came to Gamisodes (Discord) I was shown such kindness by the community and had all of my questions answered by regulars (many of whom I consider good friends now). I think the most important role as an ambassador is simply providing good information/support while maintaining a positive all-welcoming atmosphere.


It means a lot to me that the Gamisodes community accepted me as a trusted source of information and a positive representative of Gamisodes.


2) What do you like about being a Gamisodes Game Time Host? And what is your favorite game?
I absolutely love running game nights with the Gamisodes community. If you've been to an event you know we like to have a good time. We are always joking around, laughing, sharing and really just being a family. I love me a good Rumble. That's one of my favorite games that we play on game nights. I get to feel a little bit like Santa Claus when I dish out the prizes. Who doesn't like to win free stuff!?


 3) What cartoons or nostalgic tv shows would you like to see on Gamisodes next?

DuckTales, Ninja Turtles, Transformers, and Super Mario Bros.

4) If you could decide on the next new Gamisodes Inspector Gadget collection, what would it be and why?

Chief Quimby’s many disguises, because Chief Quimby is the best, obviously.

5) Who’s your favorite Inspector Gadget character and why?

Hmm…let’s see…ummm??? …. CHIEF QUIMBY!

6) What is your favorite episode or memory about Inspector Gadget and why?

I remember watching with my brother and sister while enjoying snacks on our living room couch.

7) If you could pick the next Mission location(s), where would it/they be and why?

Mission Canada, eh. Because I live here and would love to see Bayu’s interpretation of Canadian culture.

8) What is/are your favorite Gamisodes collection(s) so far? Why? Of those collections, what are some of your favorite cards/collectibles? Why?

I like anything that comes with a physical. The VIP cards, Mission Singapore and the Brain Train tickets! I like the physical reminders around my home and office. They remind me of the great community we have and the fun times we share. So, I truly enjoy looking at them. I also love Bayu’s Mission cards. His thoughtful interpretation of each destination’s culture always amuses me.


9) There are thousands of other digital collectibles and communities out there. Why did you decide on Gamisodes?

I was a collector of NBA Topshot and NFL All Day. I arrived at the Gamisodes Discord Community after receiving an invite in a Dapper email for the 24 hour party. After checking it out and hanging out with the community during the event, I was hooked.

10) Is there a Gamisodes card or collectible you don’t have yet and are anxious to add to your collection?

I keep trying for Note from Set 5! But, alas, it still eludes me!

11)  What attracted you to digital collectibles vs physical?

It is easy to track ownership and transfers of said ownership when it is embedded in a blockchain.
