Can you believe tomorrow is already the first day of June?! That means it will be Munzee’s birthday in no time! It’s also time to give a big Munzee shoutout to the many players who earned the May Player of the Month (POTM) badge for capturing 500 or more uniques of a specific myth. While some declared this feat to be quite challenging, we’re happy to have awarded hundreds of players for being absolute Myth Masters!
Congratulations to all who earned May POTM! And now it’s time to move on to next month’s requirements, which will call for nominations!
June POTM Requirements
Ready to give some recognition to hard-working players who go above and beyond? We will be awarding the POTM title to outstanding clan coordinators during the month of June! Do you know someone who is able to rally a team and coordinate the troops to victory? Many players put in hard work and careful consideration when organizing Clan Wars, and it’s about time they received their due recognition! These players could organize one clan or multiple clans so be sure to let us know the name of the player and clan(s).
If you know an outstanding clan organizer, email their player name to firstname.lastname@example.org by June 25 at 15:00 MHQ time to nominate them for the chance to earn June POTM! Remember that anyone who earned the Player of the Week badge previously IS able to earn the Player of the Month badge as well! The criteria for POTM changes each month, so stay tuned for the July POTM criteria if June isn’t your month to shine.
Get ready to sharpen your swords, dust off your jousting lance, and summon your squire, because the theme for MHQ Bash 6 will be MedZEEval Times! The 6th Annual MHQ Bash will be held from Friday, September 27 through Sunday, September 29.
What exactly will MedZEEval Times entail? We promise, this will be a weekend of victory that you won’t soon forget! Today we are excited to reveal the package dates and options. This year we will be offering two package choices, as well as the opportunity for two additional add-ons. The package options are as follows:
Medieval Times dinner and show add-on with unique icon/badge only for attendees
*When choosing Between MedZEEval Times packages… UPDATE: Shirt size is not selected at this time. Sorry for the confusion. We will send out a survey for shirt size when sales conclude. ** Blast Caps and Magnets for this package will be awarded when you check-in to MHQ Bash in September.
You can shop the complete MedZEEval Times package options HERE!
While we’re not ready to reveal all of the weekend details just yet, we would like to share what the Medieval Times dinner and show add-on will entail if you purchase A Night With Knights. Medieval Times provides the ultimate medieval immersion experience. This family-friendly dinner attraction draws inspiration from medieval tournaments and feasts. Guests enjoy a four-course meal (vegetarian options available) and are able to cheer for one of six competing knights as they engage in a tournament of jousting and fun.
The four-course meal will be included in the package, and it will consist of garlic bread, tomato bisque soup, roast chicken, buttered sweet corn, seasoned potatoes, dessert, coffee, and two non-alcoholic beverages. There will also be a full-service bar, gift shop, and Hall of Arts. And of course, in custom with medieval traditions, you will have to eat with your hands!
Families, please keep in mind that every person joining us this night will need to purchase the A Night With Knights add-on for each person who wishes to attend regardless of whether or not Munzee accounts are joined. Though Medieval Times tickets are more affordable for children if purchased directly from the website, we will not be able to guarantee that anyone will be able to sit with the group unless they order through our packages.
More information regarding complete event schedules will be released soon, but the format will be similar to previous years. There will be activities during registration Friday evening, Saturday morning, Saturday afternoon (WallaBash), Saturday evening (public event separate from ANWK), and Sunday morning. There will also be a wide variety of specials and badges to earn at each event, not to mention all of the munzees to capture in the McKinney area! For more information about WallaBash, be sure to check out the WallaBee Blog in the coming days!
We can’t wait to ride gallantly into the night atop a golden unicorn with you this fall! Okay, it might not be THAT awesome, but MedZEEval Times will still be pretty great! Stay tuned for more information!
***Please note that food orders will only be included for the “A Night With Knights” package add-on, but there will be opportunities to eat during some of the events.***
***To guarantee availability of all items in packages, online registration will close on August 23, 2019 at 15:00 MHQ time. Packages will be available for purchase at the event, but we cannot guarantee all items will be available.***
***Please purchase only one package per person who will be attending. Everyone must have at least the free package. If you have a joint account, please purchase a package for each person (they do not have to be the same package).***

On behalf of MHQ, we thank you for your continued service.
Our monthly Capture Streak badges have been centered around a year of personal improvement through highlighting different monthly resolutions. This month we’re challenging players to save money for the June Resolutions badge.
Each month’s unique badge is dedicated to accomplishing another New Year’s Resolution. Like our Super Streak badges, you will be awarded a badge if you capture at least one Munzee* each day for the entire month. The monthly Capture Streak badges allow for the chance to work towards a different goal each month in order to bring about a year of positive growth and change.
Tips for Saving
While some are naturally skilled in the art of restraint, others need more motivation to hold themselves back from bleeding their wallets dry. However, no matter how careless you might be with your spending, it is entirely possible to reverse your financial situation by adhering to ways to save money. To maximize your long-term profits, take advantage of interest when moving around bank account assets. Take inventory of the items you have accumulated over the years, and rather than continue to add to the collection, consider what you can sell. There’s a good chance you can profit from scarcely used items in your possession.
Instead of purchasing items when the mood strikes, carefully plan your shopping endeavors. Collect coupons, sign up for rewards programs, and stock up during seasonal sales. Purchase items in their off-season, and plan ahead for holiday shopping. For example, it will be far more cost effective to purchase winter apparel at the end of the cold season and save it for the next year if you know you’ll be needing a new coat in the future. Be thrifty with your spending, and don’t leave important purchases or gifts for the last minute. By planning ahead, you can secure the most desirable prices rather than shell out extra cash for a last minute need.
Stick to your shopping list, and restrain from impulse purchases. Decide which nights you want to go out, and stick to a set budget when you do so or plan social outings around discount nights. Take care of the items that you do have, and invest in high quality, long-lasting items rather than disposable trendy apparel. Be conscious of how much money you spend on take out and eating away from home and how often you waste electricity. Investing in smart appliances is a great way to lower bills and help the environment.
No, you won’t be able to take your money to the grave. But with life being so unpredictable, you never know when some extra savings could be your saving grace. Additionally, by abstaining from giving in to momentary purchases and whims, you can save your hard-earned money for things that matter, like visiting a faraway friend or relative or doing something that you’ve dreamed of. Avoid hardship down the line and open the possibility for more opportunities by being a bit more reserved with your spending.
* In order to encourage active gameplay we will not count Social Munzees for these capture streaks. If you know you’ll be in an area without munzees, plan ahead!
It’s the end of the month, which means it’s time to recognize some outstanding Virtual Garden builders! We’ve had dozens of gardens to consider this month thanks to our many Garden of the Month (GOTM) nominations! As always, all winning GOTM organizers and all players who deployed in the winning gardens will earn special badges for their contribution to beautifully growing the map! Are you ready to see see who claimed this month’s title?!
For the May GOTM winners, we’re pleased to award the Mystery Virtual Bike Field, organized by Hoekraam, and the G Cardinal Garden, organized by munzeeprof! Congratulations to our May winners and all who deployed in these wonderful gardens! You can view the winning gardens below:
Someone is taking a page from Flat Lou’s book! What better way to celebrate our recent Fitness Update than by awarding this virtual bike field? This is a great reminder to get outside and stay active! Well done, Hoekraam!
Cardinals are a beautiful bird, arriving in times of celebration or loss to remind you that you are not alone. These strong, positive birds are something we love to see on the map! Great work, munzeeprof!
Did you deploy in one of the winning gardens? All players who deployed in the respective winning gardens will receive the following special badges!
Do you know a garden that is worthy of the June GOTM title? We’re asking for players to submit already created gardens for the chance to win any of our upcoming Garden(s) of the Month! Just be sure to follow the rules!
Rules for GOTM nominations:
Garden must feature non-licensed character designs.
The garden must be built using a publicly available spreadsheet which we will ask to be locked after being 100% deployed.
We’re asking for ongoing nominations and we will release the winners throughout the year.
Send your nomination for GOTM to email@example.com! Keep in mind that we take all former nominations into consideration for upcoming months. Just be sure your garden follows the nomination rules in order to be considered eligible!
Update: FTCs are only awarded for the Greenie host of a physical scatter type (Boulders, Retro Games, etc) if it wasn’t capped earlier. Only virtual scatter types like Feathers or Infrared Munzees count toward FTC badges.
Do you pride yourself in your ability to be the First to Capture (FTC) a munzee? Are you world renowned for your FTC abilities? Do you feel like this achievement is worthy of a bit more recognition? Well, we have new badges for you! We’ve put together an extension of our First Responder badge to honor First to Capture (FTC) on all Munzee types! This retroactive line of badges launches today at 10:00 MHQ time!
Never heard of FTC? First to Capture means that you are quite the vigilant player, because you are the first one to capture a munzee after it has been deployed! While these badges are retroactive, all current munzees with zero captures are waiting for you to earn your next (or first!) FTC! You can find the First Responder badges under the Capture category.
The First Responder badges count on ALL munzee types. That means that you just have to be the first to capture any munzee type to earn a FTC. However, these badges are very high numbered, so you will have to work extremely hard to earn the higher ones. The first badge in the series has been around for a while, so it might look familiar:
First Responder– Be the first to capture more than 100 munzees!
We weren’t exaggerating when we said that these badges are hard to earn! To help you out, we’ll also give you another badge to aspire to. The second badge in the First Responder series appears as follows:
Aerodynamic Responder– Be the first to capture more than 1,111 munzees!
There are five new badges in total, bringing the FTC First Responder badge line total to six. For help earning these badges, always check your local areas, because you never know when a new munzee will be deployed around you.
We hope you enjoy these new badges! Now it’s time to lace up your shoes or polish your wheels and be the first to the scene!

Here at Munzee we’re constantly encouraging our players to meet and greet and build the personal relationships that make this game so great. To bring back this fun way to introduce team members, here is one invaluable member of the Freeze Tag’s team!
I was born in Orange County and have spent most of my life growing up in sunny California. When I was younger I’d travel to Tokyo, Japan frequently to visit family and also attended university there while I was studying abroad.
Tell us about yourself:
Proud cat mom to two of the most precious kitties, Benji and Burr! As an animal lover, I’ve grown up with pets all my life and love to spoil them. I believe that all life is precious – and yes, I’m one of those people who brings spiders outside instead of killing them. Following my passion for games, I attended the University of California, Irvine and obtained a Bachelor of Science in Computer Game Science. At the time, Craig was teaching a Game Design course and after bugging him incessantly, he finally decided to hire me as an intern. After graduating, I joined the team full-time, and the rest is history!
How long have you worked for Freeze Tag?
I have worked for Freeze Tag for almost five years and Munzee coming up on one and a half years. Time flies when you’re having fun!
How did you find Munzee?
I originally downloaded Munzee as part of an R&D assignment while working at Freeze Tag, but ended up getting sucked into the game quite quickly, especially after meeting Rob and some of the local players at a nearby event!
Mari and Tamara
What do you enjoy most about Munzee?
Munzee has led me to find some pretty unique and scenic locations to visit, that I may not have found otherwise! I love how Munzee encourages me to explore new areas I haven’t been before. In the past I had tried geocaching and really enjoyed the hide’n’seek aspect of finding caches, except when they were missing or too difficult to find. That’s why I enjoy Munzee quite a bit more. They are easier to hide and find, especially in urban areas, and there are usually way more nearby Munzees deployed than caches.I also have a blast attending events and dressing up as different Munzee creatures with my cosplay duo partner, Tamara!
What are some of your other hobbies?
Video gaming has been a huge influence and part of my life from a young age. Starting with the original Doom on MS-DOS, to Super Mario Bros on NES, Final Fantasy VII on PS1 and World of Warcraft on PC. I’ve grown into a major Blizzard fan and try to attend Blizzcon each year, if I’m lucky enough to get tickets! Recently I’ve enjoyed playing Overwatch competitively on PC and have ranked within the top 3% of players in the US.
Famous last words?
“Is there fall damage in this game?”
Stay tuned to get to know more members of Team Munzee and Freeze Tag!
Chu ka he yo! Are you feeling hungry? Hopefully you’ve left some room in your stomach, because we have a brand new Global Grub hitting the map! Korea Global Grub will officially start bouncing around today at 15:00 MHQ time!

Players will earn a special badge containing a dish of food that is unique to the flag pin country each time a Global Grub is capped. Capturing a Korea Global Grub special will award you the following tasty badge:
If you’ve never treated yourself to Korean cuisine, there are so many dishes you need to try! However, kimchi has cemented its legacy as one of the most reliable staple dishes for traditional Korean dining. This side dish of salted and fermented vegetables that are finely seasoned is s great introductory meal to whet your taste buds. You can even pick up some cabbage and prepare it at home!
