Introducing the Zodiac Munzee Line

When we launched the MunzPak service, we wanted to provide subscribers with new munzees and exclusive launches. With the October MunzPak, we will be doing just that. It will include the beginning of a new line of munzees: The Zodiac Munzees. These are physical stickers, not credits or virtuals.

scorpio_Icon_128Each month will include a new member of the Zodiac line, starting with Scorpio in October. Every Zodiac will be worth 10 deploy, capture, and cap on points. During the zodiac’s range, however, those numbers will double. For example, if a Scorpio is deployed or captured between October 23rd and November 21st, it will be worth 20 capture, deploy, and cap on points. Players will also earn a corresponding badge when they deploy a Zodiac Munzee. You can also see this information at Zodiac stickers will be mailed each month in the MunzPak and available exclusively in this program.

October’s MunzPak will include 5 Scorpio Munzees, 1 Ruby Munzee, 1 Hotel Munzee, 1 Virtual Amethyst Munzee, and a $5 gift certificate to the Munzee Store that will be emailed to you.

If you aren’t currently a MunzPak subscriber and want to get September’s Virtual MunzPak, you can still subscribe before the end of the month. Once your subscription has processed this is your renewal date. If you would like to move that date forward in October you can email us on the date you would like your October’s MunzPak to be processed at **We are only able to move your subscription to the current date**

Communication is Key

There’s been some discussion regarding communication between Munzee and our players. We would like to clear up some of these topics.

First off, our official communication channels. When Munzee first started, we wanted to be accessible and monitor the pulse of the game very closely. In doing so, many members of Team Munzee were very active in unofficial groups and information was spread in multiple places. As the game and our business have grown, we’ve had to distance ourselves in some respects. Everyone plays the game their own way and though we would love to be able to take every request personally, we don’t all have the time to do so. From this point forward, all communications regarding gameplay changes, official announcements, etc. will come through this blog. Blog posts will still be linked through Munzee social media channels, but information will always lead back to here. We will still be posting daily on social media with content such as #MunzeeFound and game-related questions/discussions. If you would like to contact MHQ, we ask that you use official channels as well. Going to will provide you with the options you need to get in touch with us.

Secondly, the Munzee 3.0 app. As we’ve said before, Munzee has changed quite a bit since the beginning. We wanted to redesign the app to represent how far we’ve come and make it easier to update as we move forward. Part of this change to 3.0 requires us to stop the functionality of the 2.x versions of the apps. This decision was not taken lightly. We had many discussions internally about the future of the Munzee app, and for technological and financial, we had to make this choice.

As with all major updates and changes like this one, there are some compatibility issues and bugs in the code. Our developers are constantly working to improve the app for everyone. We take player suggestions and requests very seriously. Though we cannot always implement these ideas or detail what’s to come in the future, we want to ensure you that we do review the submissions we receive.

Lastly, our ever growing suite of apps. In the past year, we’ve added quite a few new apps to our repertoire. These apps take a lot of time to design, program, test, etc., and we try to maintain current apps while developing new apps and features the best we can. Our developers are dedicated to making their projects the best they can, and we’re in the process of structuring our teams to streamline these development processes. We have not, and will never, forget any of our apps or players who use those apps. There are always more features and updates in the pipeline. We will have more information on some of these changes very soon.

From everyone at MHQ, we want to thank you for playing Munzee. We are making it a priority to communicate pertinent information more effectively as we move forward. We hope you will like what’s to come, and grow the map!

Newz from the Prez

I wanted to take a few minutes and update everyone on several issues we are facing. The first is the release of iOS 9 and our subsequent blog post about how it would effect the use of our app. We appreciate the patience of our Apple phone using players as we patiently wait for version 3.0.2 to be approved by Apple. The second issue has been our announcement of removal of our 2.x apps from Google Play and the App store on October 1st. Many suggestions have been made about alternatives, however several core components to the app were due for renewal from their providers. With the release of 3.0 and the new core components the time was right to cut off the other services. We realize both of these issues are not optimal for our worldwide players but we are working to come up with the best solutions possible. To help ease some of the pain we’ve come up with something fun for all players! :)

As a thank you to our loyal players we are opening up the prize vault this weekend. From 00:01 September 18 until 23:59 September 20 you will have a chance to win random prizes from MHQ (all times are MHQ based, GMT -6). These prizes will be added to your credits or your undeployed list. Every capture and/or deploy during this time has a chance to earn you a prize so get out there and Grow the Map or paint the town red! Prizes include virtuals, mystery virtuals, virtual colors, motels, aquamarines, diamonds, rubies, and even blast captures! We wish you good luck and hope you spend some time this weekend with Munzee, family, and friends.

In addition we’ve also lowered the price on several products in the store for the weekend, starting at the time of this blog post. Check out the special deals here.

Thanks for your patience during our time moving forward with the new 3.0 version of Munzee. I can’t wait for you to see what else we have in store for you during this year of New Perspective.  — Rob

Important Information Regarding Munzee 3.0 and iOS 9

Tomorrow, Wednesday, September 16th, Apple will be releasing iOS 9 to the public. The framework for the current Munzee app WILL NOT work properly with iOS 9. We currently have an update in review to fix these errors. Apple, however, is not accepting requests to expedite app reviews because of the high influx of apps being submitted to the App Store. They have replied to our request, though, stating that they are reviewing apps as quickly as possible. We suggest that you not update to iOS 9 until the new Munzee update is available if you want it to continue working properly and see the changes we have made.

We realize this is not ideal, however we have been constrained by our framework provider and the Apple review process. We expect the update to be available soon and will notify you when it is released. Thank you for your continued support, and grow the map!

Munzee 3.0 is Here!

This past year has brought quite a few changes in the Munzee Universe. Not only has Team Munzee grown but we’ve also grown our company to include new apps and ventures. Through it all, we never lost track of our core. Our company, and family, is built on the Munzee app and community. We’ve spent an extremely large amount of time and energy planning, designing, building, and refining the Munzee 3.0 update, and now, we’re ready to release it to the world.

The Munzee 3.0 app is not just an update, but a complete redesign intended to improve the experience for you, the player. Some of the changes include:

  • Daily Leaderboard with almost real-time stats
  • Upgraded options to show up to 2000 munzees on map

This is limited to a one-year renewal or brand new premium account purchase only. If you area already a premium member it will add one year to the end of your current membership. Purchase a premium membership in our online store at ***Apologies to MunzPak subscribers, August coupon will be disabled this time, but will be extended through the 6th. ONE TIME USE ONLY ON COUPON***

iOS users will see Munzee 3.0 as an update in the App Store over the next 1-24 hours. Android users will see Munzee 3.0 as a NEW app in the Google Play Store. We will be removing the current Munzee app from the Google Play Store. If you experience any issues please email with all details.

Last, but not least, we’d like to thank everyone who helped and was involved with Beta testing the Munzee 3.0 app. Your feedback was extremely important in making the app what it is.

Munzee Player of the Week: Marie Hunniecutt (hunniees)

As Munzee has grown over the years, the game has evolved in so many more ways than any of the co-founders could have imagined. We’ve certainly had our fair share of growing pains, but in its essence Munzee has tried to stick to its core goal of getting people out into the world. No one knows this better than those players who have been with us since the beginning. This week’s Player of the Week is Marie Hunniecutt (hunniees).

Who are you?
I am the spouse of a munzee addict (dt07751) and a Florida Cracker. No, a Florida Cracker is not a biscuit or snack food but a native Floridian. 😉 marienoseFlorida is a major cattle producer in the US and “Cracker” refers to the sound a whip makes when hearding cattle

Where in the world do you live?
I live in Lithia, Florida in the US, a munzee rich area. This is in central Florida not too far from Disney World or the beach.

How long have you played Munzee?
I started playing munzee about 2 years ago on a family vacation in the Midwest

How did you find Munzee?
We scanned a munzee posted on a Lake Superior Lighthouse. Thank you lrgrego for including a little information about munzee along with the QR! Since this was a driving vacation, I thought it would be fun to try it out. There weren’t many munzees on our trip or near our home at that time. Once we figured out tree hides and deployed our first mystery munzee, we were hooked.

What do you most enjoy about Munzee?
There are so many things I love about this game!

  1. Social Munzees
    No, you don’t get points, but you get the chance to meet and interact with people from all over the world sharing and trading Social Munzees. I have met such wonderful people and made many new friends via Social Munzees.
  2. Walking
    My work as an accountant required lots of time sitting and staring at a computer. (Of course, you can tell I am an accountant from the numbered lists. 😉 ) Munzee gets you out of doors, increases your activity, and gives you new venues to explore.
  3. Exploring
    Since my hubby and I like to travel, Munzee provides a way to explore new surroundings. By following Munzee Trails, we find lovely 11873933_736863866424234_876809587_nplaces that you wouldn’t read about in a travel brochure. One of my favorite spots in Cologne is a park that we found following a Mystery Munzee trail. Then, there are the munzees in Bergen overlooking the harbor…breathtaking.
    Through meeting other players, we explored new areas including Southend by the Sea, Celle, and Berlin. Thank you Tatch, Mary, McRon, Plueschi, JackSparrow and ChickenRun for making our visits so special.
  4. The Players!
    Whether it be earning a badge, learning how to create a social, or understanding game play, most munzee players go out of their way to reach out and lend a helping hand. I love helping other players and learning new munzee tips. Munzee is at its best when players work together.
  5. Clan Battles.
    Munzee does a good job of highlighting different aspects of the game in Clan Battles. I enjoy seeing which new aspect of the game will be incorporated each month. Wouldn’t it be great to see Social Munzees in next month’s battle?

What is on your wish list?

  1. Fitbit badges.
    The relationship between munzee and fitbit is a natural. It would be great to recognize the exercise benefits of munzee.
  2. More Rover badges.
    While we have badges for the number of rovers handled, the rover leaderboard is not currently recognized via badges. A badge for the number of rovers owned and unleashed might be helpful in making rovers a larger part of the game.
  3. Official Munzee Communications pushed to email and the application.
    When we first began playing munzee we missed a lot of key information since we were not using Facebook. I am now actively using FaceBook but find that many munzee players are still missing key information. The recent munzee Amethyst communication via the app was great and I hope this continues.
  4. Landing Page Redesign.
    While I love seeing recent captures and popular deployments on my munzee landing page, social munzees are commingled with virtuals and physicals. For those individuals with social munzees, the current design preventsready identification of popular physical/virtual deployments. It would be great to have social munzee deployments listed separate from other deployments.
  5. Personal Munzees for Sale.
    Great idea to develop a personal locationless munzee. My mouth has been watering since I saw them in July but regrettably I was not the winner. Pretty please release them for sale!
  6. Application Capacity.
    With the recent sale of Emeralds or other special event sales/activities, munzee speed and response seems to be a consistent issue. I expect sales are lost due to member frustration during these periods and that increased revenue which would offset additional capacity cost.

Munzee Clan Franklin

Tell us about yourself!
I am happy to be part of the Florida Munzee Family and a member of a great clan, Florida Munzee Hunters SuperChuckers. Florida is a great place to munzee! Should you ever come here to visit, please send me a note. It would be great to have you visit Florida and I would be happy to share tips and information about munzeeing here. Summers are pretty hot and humid, so Florida is best seen in the Fall, Winter or Spring. :-)

Other hobbies include:
Baking. That is all I can squeeze in with munzee

hunniees also included some socials (one of which is on the Header Image), so cap away!
