Hello everyone! Wow, the response for birthday events in July has reached new levels! Trish’s time is almost completely filled for the entire month so we will be cutting off new artwork requests. There will be generic badge options available for events that continue to join the calendar. If you have pending requests they will be dealt with in the order received. Thanks for understanding and Munzee On!
A long time ago in a place far, far away (or about 4 years ago about 3 miles from our current office), a grave mistake was made. In an effort to advance the game, generic munzee stickers were created using a new method. This method failed, however, leaving behind what became known as the Munzee Wallpaper. Thousands of stickers only to be used as decoration and as a reminder of a dark time. Or so we thought…
Ok. That may have been a bit dramatic. A few years ago, we created stickers that, due to technology at the time, were rendered unscannable. However, after a few updates to scanners and advancements in smartphone cameras, they can be used in the field.
This morning, we released an updated version of the app with a new scanner with improved recognition of damaged codes. This means that codes that may have previously been unscannable due to parts damaged or missing should be scannable now. (There are limits to how much reconstruction the scanner can do.) Because of this, we are releasing the “Munzee Wallpaper” stickers as “Scratch and Dent” stickers for purchase in the Freeze Tag Online Store.
These “Scratch and Dent” stickers are available now in packs of 20 stickers for $1.25. While we have thoroughly tested these stickers for scannability, you may have to be a bit more patient while capping and deploying in some cases.
Get these stickers while you can, and Munzee on!
Earlier this morning we pushed Munzee 3.4.4 to the Google Play and Apple App Stores. Along with an updated scanner and minor fixes/improvements, this new version adds support for the Mini ZeeOps that can be earned by capturing the dossiers spilled by the new Briefcase Munzees. You must have the new version of the app installed for this feature to work properly.
Good luck to those of you who are currently participating in a ZeeOp, and Munzee on!
While we’re working on changes for the Physical MunzPak, we still have the March Virtual MunzPak available for subscription today! It includes:
2 Flat Robs
1 Virtual Resort
1 Blast Capture
We hope you enjoy this month’s Virtual MunzPak, and keep an eye out for the updated Physical MunzPak information!
Thank you for your support so far with the Go Green Munzee Events! Excited to see so many events on the calendar and I’ve been super busy responding to all your emails, creating event accounts and Trish has been drawing lots and lots of badges and icons for you all!
Trish’s diary is now full until early April. Only generic art requests moving forward for Go Green Events in March and the first week of April. I will have examples of the generic options early next week.

Go Green and Munzee On!

Howdy! Here at MHQ, we are always looking for ways to improve the services and products we provide. Over the past few months, we’ve been tweaking and refining our MunzPak program. In that spirit, we will be making another change during March. The March Physical MunzPak will not launch at the beginning of the month as it has in the past. While we can’t give you full details right now, we can tell you the following:
- All current Physical MunzPak subscriptions will end March 1st at 00:01 MHQ time.
- Virtual MunzPak subscriptions WILL continue as they are for now.
- When we are ready to relaunch Physical MunzPak, all former subscribers will receive an email with information regarding how to subscribe, and we will post full information here on the blog.
This IS NOT the end of Physical MunzPaks. Keep an eye out in March for information about the new and improved MunzPak! Thank you for your support, and Munzee on!
March is almost here, and that means so is the schedule for Flat Robs and Flat Matts!
Flat Robs will be celebrating Go Green events as well as real Rob’s birthday by being on the map the entire month of March (March 1 at 00:01 MHQ time through March 31st at 23:59 MHQ time)!
As noted last month, Flat Matt will begin the month by being on the map while Matt is attending the Munzee Madness 7 events. After that, he will be on the map during the following times:
- March 8th at 00:01 MHQ time through March 11th at 23:59 MHQ time
- March 15th at 00:01 MHQ time through March 19th at 23:59 MHQ time
- March 21st at 00:01 MHQ time through March 27th at 23:59 MHQ time
- March 29th at 00:01 MHQ time through March 31st at 23:59 MHQ time
We hope you have a great March!
The Munzee Podcast is back for 2018! Rob and Matt say THANK YOU to January’s specials, briefly chat about the latest Munzee update and do their very best to confuse our players about what’s to come next. Enjoy!
Exciting start to the day! Munzee version 3.4.1 has been pushed to the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store this morning.
This update includes:
– Updated scanner
– Updated translations
– Fixed a problem on iOS that caused a white bar on map screen when there was no nearby activity.
– Updated scanner

Per usual, there may be a delay in propagation to your area, so please be patient if you don’t see the update just yet.
Enjoy and Munzee on!
2017 was a great year. We tried to encompass our theme of “Everyone. Everywhere.” into all that we did. There were learning experiences along the way, but the community consistently pushed us to provide the best game and experiences we could. For that, we thank you tremendously. Below, we have some “year-in-review” stats and messages from the team followed by more information about our 2018 theme.
Munzee Events from Louise
Wow, what a year 2017 has been for Munzee Events. To everyone everywhere, thank you all for keeping me so busy!
We’ve had some fantastic events this year from the Tea Parties to our 6th Birthday celebrations, the MunzFit Events to the Christmas Parties that are just wrapping up now. 525 events to be precise, most hosted by you, our wonderful players, and some hosted by us at MHQ. We were delighted to welcome so many of you to our new office in McKinney back in September and had our first events with the whole MHQ team.
We have greatly enjoyed coming to your events all over the world too, thank you for inviting us and being such wonderful hosts. Personally, my absolute highlight was celebrating my birthday with over 100 Munzee players at the Australia Day events back in January!
We’ve introduced new exciting merchandise exclusive to events and created Emerald Gardens all over the world. We also hit new record attendance levels with the events in Germany this summer, absolutely brilliant stuff!
I look forward to meeting more of you virtually as I work with you to create your Munzee Events and can’t wait to meet even more of you out and about at your amazing events.
Thank you for your support, Munzee On!
There are quite a few things that could be said about 2017. We went through a lot of changes in efforts to do what we thought was best for the game and company. The community was always at the forefront when we made decisions, and “Everyone. Everywhere.” wasn’t just a theme but a way of thinking. Check out some of the stats from this year:
As we mentioned in the podcast, our theme for 2018 is “The Time is Now.” Over the years, there has been projects and ideas that we haven’t had the time or resources to implement. With the staff and resources we have after merging with Freeze Tag, we can finally put these ideas into action. These range from gameplay changes to a new app and work on them will begin immediately. While you may not see them immediately, be sure that we are working to make the game and app better than ever.
Once again, thank you for everything you have done to help grow the game and support other member’s of the community.
Happy New Year, and Munzee on!
