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.
All sorts of shenanigans occur on and around April Fool’s Day, and this year is no different. We’ve noticed a mischievous character going by “The Prankster” around the office lately, and we think we’ve learned his plans.
The Prankster has been taking some cues from a few of our newest Mystery Munzees, so you need to be careful when you go after him. When you capture him, one of three things will happen:
The Prankster Gets Foiled – Just because you don’t lose doesn’t mean you win. You don’t lose or earn any points.
Each scenario will also earn you a badge! You can earn the Playing With Fire, Cold-Hearted, and Zilch, Zip Nada, Nothing badges for getting burned, getting frozen, and foiling The Prankster, respectively.
Playing With Fire – Be burned once by The Prankster April Fools Munzee
Cold-Hearted – Be frozen once by The Prankster April Fools Munzee
Zilch, Zip, Nada, Nothing – Capture The Prankster Munzee and have nothing happen
Dates: March 31st at 00:01 MHQ time through April 9th at 23:59 MHQ time
Capture Points: -5, -1, or 0
CapOn Points: 14
Number of Pranksters on the Map: 1,741
Bounce Time: The Prankster will bounce on greenies every 6 hours or when capped
The Mystery Munzee line wasn’t the only line of munzees that The Prankster was taking cues from. He also learned something special from the Mythological Munzees. You CAN capture The Prankster on your own munzees.
Munzee is turning 6 this year! To celebrate we are taking over Muncie, Indiana and turning 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.
We’re pleased to announce that special Garfield icons will be exclusively available in Muncie, Fairmount (the hometown of Garfield creator and cartoonist Jim Davis) and other areas of Grant County.
Some of these munzees will mark the locations of Garfield statues in the area. Located in Marion, Indiana and surrounding Grant County cities, the fiberglass statues each measure approximately five feet in height and depict Jim Davis’s Garfield in hilarious costumes or situations. Learn more about the official Grant County Garfield Trail HERE!
A Munzee (and possibly Eventzee) trail will be placed to coincide with this and launched during the birthday weekend!
Keep a lookout for more details about the weekend of events on the Calendar in the near future, but start planning your trip to the Midwest now!
We’ll also have more information regarding all of the 6th Birthday worldwide festivities soon, but you can be sure that it will be a BAM! of a time, even if it is a bit DRAWN out!

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:
Green Mystery Virtuals
Dark Green MVMs
Green Mystery Virtual
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.
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.

Charity Paw Prints- Capture one Paw Print Charity Munzee of any type.

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.
Points: 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.
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
