St. Patrick’s Day Weekend Wrap-Up

There was a lot going on this weekend with Flat Robs on the map, Leprechauns bouncing at an accelerated rate, and 3x points on some of our favorite green munzees. We love seeing gameplay statistics, so we decided run the numbers on this past weekend. All we can say is “wow”.

Total Capture and Deploys

As we mentioned in our social posts earlier today, Saturday was in the Top 10 Overall days of both captures and deploys. That’s not all, though. Friday, Saturday, and Sunday also all ranked in the Top 50 Overall days of captures and the Top 20 Overall days of deploys!

  • Friday:
    • 287,784 Captures (Ranked #50 Overall)
    • 16,381 Deploys (Ranked #16 Overall)
  • Saturday:
    • 509,530 Captures (Ranked #7 Overall)
    • 21,200 Deploys (Ranked #6 Overall)
  • Sunday:
    • 388,712 Captures (Ranked #20 Overall)
    • 19,080 Deploys (Ranked #11 Overall)

3x Point Munzee Captures

Seven munzee types were included in the 3x Point Weekend: Greenies, Dark Green MVMs, Light Green MVMs, Green Mystery Virtual Munzees, Green Virtual Munzees, Shamrock Munzees, and Emerald Munzees. During the weekend, there were 407,870 captures of these types including 92,787 on Friday, 165,356 on Saturday, and 149,727 on Sunday!

The Extras

We also had some extra badges for capturing Leprechauns and Greenies this weekend. You stepped up to the challenge, and 716 players earned at least the first of the three badges! There were 3,349 Leprechaun captures and 201,198 greenie captures over the weekend!

We hope you all had a great weekend, and we can’t wait for you to see what else we have coming up soon!

Munzee on!

St. Patrick’s Day Weekend UPDATE

A reminder that starting Friday March 17th at 00:01 MHQ Munzee is going GREEN with a 3x Point Weekend! Greenies, Shamrocks and Emerald munzees will all be worth 3 times as many points for captures, deploys or cap-ons.

Wait, what’s that? Some of our other munzees are a bit GREEN with envy…

We’re pleased to announce Green Virtuals, Green Mystery Virtuals, and Green and Dark Green MVMs will also be worth triple points!

So to recap:

From Friday, March 17th at 00:01 MHQ time until Sunday, March 19th at 23:59 MHQ time, we’ll be having a 3x Point Weekend for our favorite green munzees, including:

  • Greenies
  • Shamrocks
  • Emeralds
  • Green Virtuals
  • Green Mystery Virtuals
  • Green MVMs
  • Dark Green MVMs

Dark Green MVM

This will effect all points — Deploys, Captures, and CapOns.

Don’t forget that in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day, Leprechauns will also be bouncing faster than normal. During this time frame, Leprechauns will bounce every 6 hours (or when capped) instead of every 12 hours.

Be on the lookout for three secret Luck Of The Irish badges that can only be earned this weekend too. These are for capping Greenies and Leprechauns, but you’ll have to figure out just how many! Here’s a hint of where to start though…

Free Shamrocks!Capture 100 greenies and 1 Leprechaun.

Munzee on! #E1EW and Happy #StPatricksDay!

Featured Toolkit: Tracee Austin (tracee74)

One of the best parts about Munzee is that you can play how you want. Everyone goes about playing a bit differently, and that leads to some very creative and innovative uses of objects. From containers to bags to maintenance, we always encounter something new when we meet players. We want to showcase your Munzee Toolkits to see how you play the game and possibly even inspire other players who may need help. This week’s featured Munzee Toolkit comes from Tracee Austin (tracee74).


What’s in your Munzee Toolkit?

We have 3 players in our house.

First, we have our organizers (small tackleboxes) for our munzees. We have our name on the outside of each box and then G (greenies) or S (special) on each compartment,

Next, we have what is actually a nail care kit that comes in handy for repairing munzees. I’ve actually saved a few that were painted over with this.

Then, we have out flashlight for finding the non-glow-in-the-dark munzees at night.

And finally, we have out bag. It fits all of our organizers, flashlight, and nail kit. It has a net pocket on the side that we put the the sticker backs in. It also has a pocket for my keys so I don’t have to keep track of them while out capping and deploying.

If you have a Munzee Toolkit that you’d like to show off, you can email us at with the subject “Munzee Toolkit”. Make sure to include:

  • Your username and where you are from.
  • A few high quality photos.
  • A list of what each item is and how you use it.
  • What made you decide to use those items.
  • Any other relevant details.

We want to see your creativity and learn how you play. Show us what you’ve got!

Munzee on!

Let the Safar-Zee begin!

Last week we announced our March fundraising effort would focus on helping wildlife worldwide and now we’re excited to go into more detail on how YOU can help the majestic beasts of the wild.

For the month of March we will be selling Paw Print special virtual icons in the Munzee Online Store and all proceeds will go to help world wildlife rescue organizations.

These special Paw Prints will be on sale from now until the end of the month and the munzees will stay on the map through 23:59 MHQ Time on April 30, 2017.

For $5 you get a pack of 5 different Paw Print icons, each featuring a different animal print: Paw, Talon, Hoof, Foot, and Claw. Players will be limited to 20 sets of five Paw Print specials,

30 Capture, 10 Deploy, 10 CapOn

There are also a variety of badges you can earn for capping and deploying these temporary icons.The Safar-Zee, Charity Paw Prints and Animal Expedition badges will only be available while the charity specials are on the map so get to capping.

In connection to raising money for a worldwide wildlife rescue organization, we’ve also hired a new local member of the MHQ team- Meet Mystery!

To add a local spin to our worldwide initiative Munzee has adopted Mystery for the year through In-Sync Exotics, an exotic feline rescue group based out of Wylie, TX.

In order to offer Mystery and her other furry friends everything they need we have set up a permanent Munzee Virtual Garden outside of In-Sync’s headquarters. You can help make Mystery welcome to the Munzee team by purchasing a golden paw print virtual icon for $10. The pins will be automatically deployed at the location.

30 Capture, 10 Deploy, 10 CapOn

Players are limited to one paw print pin and this virtual garden will be permanently placed at 3430 Skyview Drive in Wylie, TX 75098.

Checkout the virtual garden as it grows HERE.

On behalf of Team Munzee we thank our players for their support and look forward to lending a helping hand to those with paws. Munzee on!

Player of the Week: Deb Carter (Debolicious)

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 Deb Carter (Debolicious).

Who are you?
Hi, my name is Deb, and my player name is Debolicious. I’m a truck driver, and I am Munzee crazy. My long-suffering husband and I travel around Australia, so Munzee is the best for finding new places and exploring. I would have never seen the things I’ve seen if it wasn’t for #Munzee.

Where in the world do you live?
I live in Mackay. It’s in the beautiful tropical north of Queensland, Australia. I have only just returned from 3 years away, and I am trying my best to get more players. I am growing the map here quite quickly.

How long have you played Munzee?
I have been playing for about 3 years.

How did you find Munzee?
My best friend of 35 years Jody (nomadicjp) got me into it when Nicki (nicdchick), a lay she worked with, showed it to her. At the time, I was living in Mackay. I then moved to Perth, Western Australia and got to meet Nicki. I am now very good friends with her and a lot of Perth Munzee people. I got crazy about Munzee in Perth. That is where I learned a lot about Munzee, including the rules. Who would have thought there was a code of conduct?

What do you most enjoy about Munzee?
Being outside. I love trails in the bush the most, but sadly, I have found that most players are after quick points and tend to just UTL the well hidden ones. I love how Munzee takes you places that you would never have found it it wasn’t for the game. Now, i try to deploy in areas that I find enjoyable, places where visitors would like to see, and especially hidden spots that the average traveler would not generally find.

What is on your wish list?
I wish not to live in a places that had very few munzees and not many players (told you I am Munzee crazy). I also wish the most for an easy way to get the word out to new players in my area. Because Munzee is a business, I am finding it hard to get people to help me advertise it. I would also love for MHQ to create an all use flyer we could print off that would have all the details about the game on it since some of us don’t know how to use Photoshop. Maybe even a Zombie evolution series.

Tell us about yourself!
I would have to say the most exciting thing about my life are my awesome friends whom spoil me to no end. The highlight of my life was not only meeting Rob and Louise in real life but having some of my friends surprise me at the recent Australia Day event in Melbourne. I would like to think I’m pretty awesome, and my theory is I have lots of awesome people in my life, so if like attracts like, I too my be pretty dang awesome. 🙂

Other hobbies include:
Munzee, Munzee, Munzee. I used to dabble in photography, but now all of my time goes to Munzee and #GrowTheMap. I do love a good hike, and if I’m hiking, I;m usually struggling to breathe, so I don’t munzee on those trips. Ha ha. My other interests I guess are trying to be healthy and living a good, clean life. I have recently discovered I love cycling. Did I mention Munzee?


Any last words?
A shout out to my Munzee faves Brenda (Bewrightback), Julie (julesbeus), and Nicki (nicdchick). All from Perth and all whom I miss dearly living on the wrong side of the country. I’m pretty sure these are the ladies who nominated me. I am so super excited to be nominated and have a title. Thank you so very much, Munzeeland. I don’t know what I would be doing without you. xx #E1EW

PS: A link to my garden if you would like to throw a Virtual at me 🙂

Debolicious also include some socials, so cap away!
