Last year was a great year for events, and we want to make 2017 even better. As we plan for this year’s events, we want to incorporate our Everyone. Everywhere. theme and recognize our worldwide community. That begins with Easter events.
For the Easter event packages, we would like to reflect some of the worldwide Easter traditions. We’ve created a Google Form where you can tell us about your Easter traditions, e.g. Easter Bonnets, Easter Egg Hunts, Easter Parades, etc. These are community events and should reflect that.
We can’t wait to hear from you!
2016 was great year for Munzee Inc. and we’re excited to look back on some of the highlights! The “2016 in Review” series will showcase different aspects of the company and some of our team’s favorite parts of 2016.
It gives me great pleasure to take a few minutes away from setting up all these amazing Christmas parties to say THANK YOU to all of the players for their contribution to events. To my lovely hosts for putting the events on and being so great to work with, and to the amazing players that travel all over the world to attend the events and make them so fun.
My favourite aspect is the artwork and I’d like to say a massive thanks to the incredible Trish for her amazing work. I also love seeing you all have fun and get involved at the events in your Dodgy Jumpers and Easter Bonnets!
It’s fun to surprise my loyal hosts with stuff such as Emerald gardens in their area and to reward attendees with hidden extras at the events they go to. This will continue.
I loved the MunzFit events and the way players supported me, Rob and Matt in our successful attempt at 2 Guinness World Records, thank you.
I’ve been lucky enough to attend a few events myself this year and it’s been wonderful to put names to faces and meet players I’ve been working with for a couple of years now. I will be continuing my efforts to spread the events love far and wide and look forward to working with many of you and meeting even more of you!
Munzee on and thank you x.

It’s only been a month since Lone Star Bash, but we’re already planning for MHQ Bash 4! While we don’t have full details quite yet, we do have the official dates for it.
MHQ Bash 4 will be taking place September 22-24, 2017 here in McKinney! We’re excited to continue this tradition and see players from around the world!
We will have more information regarding accommodations, schedules, packages, and everything else out soon. We can’t wait!
November is flying by, and we’re got a lot of fun specials and events coming up, including Christmas Parties! The Munzee Calendar is filling up with Christmas Parties around the world! If you still haven’t planned yours, you still have time! Check out Louise’s blog post regarding the different event packages, put your event on the calendar, and start planning!
Please keep in mind: the deadline for Christmas Party artwork is THIS FRIDAY. Starting Saturday, November 12th, only generic artwork will be available for badges and icons. If you’re ready to submit artwork or would like more information, please email [email protected]!
The planning stages for Christmas Parties are in full swing, and Louise and Trish are hard at work getting everything ready. We want everyone to be able to have the artwork they want for their events, but we do need to provide ample time for completion.
For events during the first weekend of December, art requests must be submitted by Friday, November 4th at 23:59 MHQ time. For all other Christmas Parties, requests must be submitted no later than Friday, November 11th at 23:59 MHQ time. You can submit these requests by contacting [email protected] after you’ve submitted your event to the calendar. Following that date, only generic artwork options will be available for badges and icons. All packages will still be available.
Don’t miss out on getting custom artwork for your Christmas Party! We’re excited to see all of the great designs Trish makes for you!
It’s hard to believe that Lone Star Bash was over a week ago! Once again, thank you to all those who participated in one way or another. It was an amazing weekend, and we couldn’t do it without you.
Also, thank you to everyone who submitted pictures for the Lone Star Bash gallery. We’ve chosen some of the best, and put them below. If you still have pictures you want to submit, feel free to upload them to the Google Drive folder. We’ll update it once more at the end of the week.
Enjoy, and Munzee on!
Hello my lovely hosts, it’s that time of year again – time to plan your Munzee Christmas Parties! Last year was fantastic, there were so many great events all over the world. Let’s do it again!
First step is to get your event on the calendar and think about what you’d like to have included. Prices are as normal but various packages are available which unlock certain host badges. Christmas Parties are for the whole of December and every package includes a Christmas Party Attendee Badge and some surprises.
Just like the unicorns helped us celebrate the birthday events, the reindeer will be getting involved in the Christmas parties. Here are the packages:
- The Prancer – Basic event and no proximity restrictions – $30
- The Dancer – The Prancer plus 5 mystery virtuals – $35
- The Vixen – The Dancer plus badge and icon – $135
- The Rudolph – The Vixen plus Eventzee – $185
Father Christmas is bound to make another visit… if you’d like to have a rummage in his bag please request the Santa’s Sack option for $20, this gives every attendee a free credit item.
Don’t forget to dig out your Dodgy Jumpers again too, a badge and a spot in the gallery is up for grabs at each event. The host just needs to email me with the winner!
Don’t forget to leave plenty of time for artwork, get those requests in ASAP please. We will move to generic art options when the Trish’s diary is full and we will communicate that nearer the time. Really looking forward to hearing from you and having some fun!
For further details please drop me an email at [email protected].
