We’ve reached a new milestone. On April 19th, the 6 Millionth active munzee was deployed in the Netherlands by zoekix!
For the past (almost) six years, we’ve watched Munzee grow in amazing ways. We were thrilled when the 1 Millionth munzee was deployed in January 2014. Three years later, Munzee has reached new heights and is only poised to go higher. For now, though, we’re celebrating what you, our players, have built.
First off, zoekix’s greenie deploy is now a special icon worth 6 points.
We want everyone to get in on the celebration, though, so we’re also going to put out specials using this 6 Million icon!
From 12:00 MHQ time on Friday, April 28th through 12:00 MHQ time on Thursday, May 4th, 600 “6 Millionth Munzee” specials will be bouncing on greenies every 6 hours or when captured, and you WILL be able to capture them on your own munzees. You will receive 20 points for capturing one of these specials, and the owner of the host greenie will earn 17 points.
Thank you so much for your support and help with growing the map. We can’t wait to see the game and community grow even more.
This year’s internal MHQ theme is “All In”, so what better way to apply that than a casino themed MHQ Bash! Last year we had a ton of fun at MHQ Bash 3, but we’re kicking it up a notch for our Four-Of-A-Kind fourth year!
As a refresher, this year’s Bash will take place Friday, September 22nd through Sunday, September 24th in McKinney, TX.
The tentative* schedule is as follows:
Friday, September 22nd

Saturday, September 23rd

9am: MunzFit 2.0 and Goodbye Event
*Times and locations will be finalized and provided as we get closer to the events.
There are four packages available for this year’s MHQ Bash: Royal Flush, Full House, Flush, Ace High.
***To guarantee availability of all items in packages, online registration will close on August 11th, 2017 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 Ace High package. If you have a joint account, please purchase a package for each person (they do not have to be the same package).***
In March we celebrated our favorite color- GREEN. We also gave back to some wild friends with the help of our players, announced some birthday plans, crashed at a couple hotels and updated the app.
Take a look back on some of the things that happened this month and what to expect next month as well!
We kicked off the month with Safar-Zee, a fundraising effort focused on helping wildlife worldwide. For the month of March we sold Paw Print special virtual icons with proceeds going to help wildlife rescue organizations. As always our players showed their enthusiasm from the start and have already helped In-Sync Exotics and our newly adopted tiger Mystery.
The special Paw Prints will be on the map through 23:59 MHQ Time on April 30, 2017. The virtual garden above In-Sync is permanent.
Greet Garfield in Munzee, IN!
This month we announced some of Munzee’s 6th Birthday celebration plans to take over Muncie, Indiana and turn it into Munzee, Indiana! Join Rob the weekend of July 21st for a number of fun events including a trip to the Delaware County Fair! Rob will also be visited by a certain fat cat who is pretty popular around those parts.
Munzee Gone GREEN
We celebrated St. Patrick’s Day weekend in full force with a triple point weekend on some of our favorite green munzees, expediated Leprechauns and a limited time Leprechaun badge line!
Needless to say, our players made the most of the weekend and Saturdaywas in the Top 10 Overall days of both captures and deploys.
At Your Service
While February kept players busy capturing the treacherous Jewel Thief on precious stones, in March a new stealthy fella began roaming the halls of Hotels and Motels worldwide.
He claims he’s just here to help you with your bags though, so be sure to leave a tip for the new Bellhop Nomad Munzee!
The up-Dating Game
This month we updated Munzee to version 3.3.2. Be sure to update your app to make the most of the following new features.
Changes to the Own Socials list to fit overall look and feel.
Added the ability to deploy Socials from the player’s Details page.
Fixed photo submission issues for Places Munzees.
Added the ability to choose between select installed navigation apps.

Minor bug fixes and improvements.
Coming in April…
– We know we’ve been BASHful, but stay tuned for some news soon.
In March we kicked off ZeeOps and for the last month our players have taken down the Mean Green Gang and stopped their giant jewel-powered laser! An agent’s job is never done though, so prepare for another month of twists and turns.
The Mean Green Gang is using Top Secret Fire and Ice technology to wreak havoc across the world and it’s up to you to stop them. Certain Missions this month will require you to capture and deploy Fire and Ice Mystery Munzees. Your success in stopping the Mean Green Gang’s continued attacks has caught the eye of a mysterious group known only as R.U.M. This group of authorized resellers will outfit you with everything you need, but it’s up to you to prove you’re worthy.

This Operation is free, but you can only complete it once. The Cadet Op will be available to plan on April 1st- no we’re not fooling around.
On behalf of MHQ, we thank you for your continued service.
February showed us a lot of love! We released some awesome new coinz, had some great specials and announced a new operation we’ve put way more than 1,000 hours into.
Take a look back on some of the things that happened last month and what to expect in March as well!
At long last we are proud to announce the creation of ZeeOps- single player campaign missions to complete for rewards. These Operations work much like individual Clan Wars, but feature a range of Mission difficulty levels that require a variety of Munzee skills.
This February love was in the air- love of chocolate that is. We released Chocloate Heart Boxes that released three different kinds of chocolate when capped. Capping all three earned players an empty box of chocolate badge. Whether you had a Valentine or not, MHQ wanted to make sure you got something sweet!
Furry Forest Friends
This month 1,500 Faun Mythological Munzees scurried onto the map to greenies and Earth Mystery Munzees worldwide.The first of our Classical Mythological Munzee set, these furry forest dwellers are attracted to Earth Mystery Munzees, which were also released this month.
Easter will be here before we know it, so we gleefully announced that the whole of April is open for you to host and attend Munzee Tea Parties! The inspiration for these came from all round the world, so thank you for letting us know about your Easter and spring traditions.
Be sure to get your event on the Munzee Calendar ASAP because there will be an art work deadline in a couple of weeks based on demand.
Hidden In Plain Sight
We’ve added some new Urban Camo munzees to the Online Store! These new designs are perfect for hiding the game pieces in public without worrying about them getting ripped up.These four new designs are available now for $7.50 for 20 stickers.
First off, we want to thank you for your patience over the past few days. Scott and Daniel, along with our AWS partner, have been working nonstop to get everything back up and running properly.
As you can imagine, Rob is a bit worn out after this week and is ready for a break. He can’t just step away, though, so he’s leaving Flat Rob to look over the map. Starting tomorrow (March 3rd) at 00:01 MHQ time, Flat Robs will be on the map. This will last through Sunday, March 5th, at 23:59 MHQ time.
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE.
Flat Rob didn’t want to leave the map, so we bargained with him. Flat Robs will be on the map the following two weekends as well. They will appear from:
March 9th at 00:01 MHQ time through March 12th at 23:59 MHQ time
March 17th at 15:00 MHQ time through March 19th at 23:59 MHQ time
Since the blog has been down we’ve had some new things released so for information check out the following blogs;
While you’ve all been busy capturing the treacherous Jewel Thief on precious stones all month, a new stealthy fella is roaming the halls of Hotels and Motels worldwide. He claims he’s just here to help you with your bags though, so be sure to leave a tip for the new Bellhop Nomad Munzee!
10 Bellhop Nomads are now bouncing on Motel and Hotel Munzees every 12 hours or until captured. Note that the Bellhop only bounces to physical Destination Munzees though, so it will not fall on Virtual Resort Munzees.
With the release of the Scatter Munzee Badges a few weeks ago, of course the SCATTERED weren’t too far behind! This new line of badges is for capturing the ever exploding munzees that are sent out after initially capturing a Scatter Munzee.
Similar to the mad Scatter badges, the Scattered badges depict just how overwhelming it can be when more than a few get loose.
Picking up the Pieces! – Cap 50 ScatterED Munzees
The Catch All! – Cap 100 ScatterED Munzees
They’re Everywhere! – Cap 250 ScatterED Munzees
Please note that these badges are only for the official Scattered Munzees, so Fire, Ice and other specials that include munzees that scatter will not count. These badges are retroactive though, so all the hard work you’ve put into capping Scattered Munzees has paid off!
You can begin scheduling your operations today by going to munzee.com/ops. Based on how much ZeeCred you have acquired so far, you can schedule Basic, Advanced, Mega and Ultra Ops.
You’ll be able to complete the current campaign of Operations until the first of next month when a new set will go live. Remember that ZeeOps rewards change every month, so complete as much of these first Operations as you can.
Premium members have been awarded 50 ZeeCred and you can purchase more at https://store.munzee.com/collections/zeeops Normally you’ll be able to buy 25 ZeeCred for $5, but in celebration of the ZeeOps launch we have lowered the price to $2.50 for the first week.

2. Once you have chosen your operation length you’ll pick the date you want the operation to begin. Remember, operations are based on MHQ time and can’t overlap so plan your month precisely.
After the date has been added you will begin choosing missions. Agents are required to complete distinct daily missions depending on the operation.
3. Missions Levels vary on the intensity of the required task and certain operations can only access certain missions.
Basic Ops only offer level one missions.
Advanced Ops offer level one and two missions.
Mega Ops offer up to level 3, but players are also required to choose a minimum of two level 3 missions.

Collecting jewel munzees has become a staple of the game, but what are you to do with all of those precious stones you’ve captured?
We’re happy to announce that a new line of badges have been released for capturing certain jewel munzees. These badges track captures on non-blastable jewels: Topaz, Aqua, Diamond, Ruby, Pink Diamond and Amethyst.
Null Image for Jewel Collector Badges.
The design of these badges feature a few ideas of where you might safely keep some of those jewels, but you’ll only be able to unlock one at a time. To start things off, you can earn the “Hidden Hole” badge by capturing 200 non-blastable jewel munzees. It may not seem like much of a security system, but you’ve got to start somewhere, right?
Once you earn the first in the set you’ll unlock the requirements for the next badge. These may not be the easiest badges to earn, but you’ve really got to work for the added security. For those that are able to achieve maximum security, keep your eyes out for a secret Level 4 badge that won’t show up until you earn it.
Happy hunting for jewels and as always, Munzee on!
