2016- Munzee Events

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.

Lone Star Bash Wrap Up

Well Lone Star Bash is over now, and we had a great time. Team Munzee would like to thank everyone who participated, whether it was by attending the events, deploying for others, or interacting with us in other ways. We couldn’t do what we do without you. As Dylan said during his toast on Saturday night at TUPPs, “There are wood ships, and there are steel ships, but the best ships are friendships.” Cheesy? Very. True? Absolutely. The Munzee community brings people from all around the world together and creates lasting friendships. All of us are thankful for the friends that we’ve gained through Munzee, and we’re overjoyed to see the friendships that are created throughout the community.

The weekend was full of great events and great people. From Friday at the State Fair of Texas to Sunday at Celebration Park, there was never a shortage of munzees to cap or fun to be had. We enjoyed every minute of it and hope those in attendance did, too.

There are a few things to note:

  1. Announcements/introductions that were made during Lone Star Bash will be announced on the blog this week.
  2. If you have pictures from this weekend, don’t forget to add them to the Google Drive folder so we can add them to our gallery.
  3. If you did attend Lone Star Bash, keep an eye out for the survey we will be sending out. We’re always looking for feedback to make our events better.

Once again, thank you. You are the reason we do what we do, and we’re proud of how the game and community continues to strengthen and grow. We’re already excited for next year’s event.

Munzee on!

P.S. – If you haven’t seen the video of Rob getting taken down by Robbie during Bubble Soccer (or just want to watch it on a loop), you can check out the video on our Instagram.

MHQ Lone Star Bash!

Since the first MHQ Bash two years ago, the event has continued to grow each year as the biggest Munzee event worldwide. Much like our home state, everything is bigger in Texas so we’re continuing the tradition this year with MHQ Bash 3 dubbed “MHQ Lone Star Bash”!

LoneStarBashBadge_720
MHQ Lone Star Bash will take place on October 7th, 8th, and 9th all around the Dallas area. This three day event aims to celebrate our amazing players and the great state that Munzee was created in. The schedule of events is as follows:

Friday, October 7th

  • Lone Star Bash Kickoff (6 PM): We’ll be kicking off Lone Star Bash at TUPPs brewery once again with food catered by Green Pin Kitchen. The kickoff will work as a meet and greet with the MHQ staff (the entire global team will be here!) and other players from around the world.

Saturday, October 8th

  • Lone Star Bash Games (9 AM): The fun continues on Saturday morning at Gabe Nesbitt Park in McKinney, Texas. There will be plenty of room to cap and deploy while having fun and playing Texas-themed Eventzee games.
  • Lone Star Bash Fair Day (4 PM): What better way to cap (pun intended) off a day of fun than to visit The State Fair of Texas! We’ll be riding the train down to the State Fair and spending the evening exploring what it has to offer. Join the State Fair themed Eventzee hunt to really get a taste of Texas!


Sunday, October 9th

  • Lone Star Dash (8 AM): With all of our talk about fitness, we’ve decided to integrate it into our event. We’ll be hosting a 5K (complete with runner’s bibs and medals) to finish off the weekend! Dress in a TX themed costume for a chance to win a prize! After the 5K, we will have breakfast and a send off event for everyone.]

Munzee’s 5th Birthday Bash Details!

Earlier this year, we announced Munzee’s 5th Birthday Bash would be held in the Denver, Colorado area from June 30 through July 4. After planning and getting help from some of our great local players, we’ve got the details to share with you now!

Munzee’s 5th Birthday Bash will be a 5 day extravaganza taking place all around the Denver area. Rob, Matt, Dylan, and Louise are making the trek to the Mile High City for the party! A party is no fun without friends, so we are looking for players and non-players alike who are interested in the following things:

  • Scenic walks next to mountains, rivers, and highways

  • Spinning a yarn over a local craft brew

  • Staring at copper domes and searching for little gnomes

  • Stuffing doughnuts in your face at all hours of the night

  • Searching the old wild west for QR codes

 With 9 Munzee events over 5 days, there is bound to be something for everyone. Imagine the fun when you add Eventzee to the mix, giving everyone the option to compete for prizes in our photo-based scavenger hunts as well. Each of our nine events will have a custom badge. As usual there will be surprise badges, icons, and prizes scattered throughout the party. We will have a mixture of activities at each event for the social player, the points hound, and the adventurous hybrids.

A full schedule can also be found at www.munzee.com/birthdaybash.
We will publish our month-long worldwide birthday plans soon, but you can start thinking now about when you might like to celebrate locally during our birthday month!

FREE

Everyone always wants something for free. Well this time we are totally giving it to you! That’s right, *FREE! Flat Robs @ Easter Events!

Matt left the office Friday for an event in Canada, and other team members are out at events this weekend. Rob was sad he missed the first Easter events that started on the 17th and had other plans with family for the weekend. He wants to make it to every event in the world, but it’s just not possible to travel that much. So we put our thinking caps on and decided to send the next best thing! FLAT ROB! He will be on the map for the duration of the Easter events, so he is able to celebrate with everyone worldwide. That’s right, all the way through April 10th at 23:59.

Flat Rob’s will be sold in the store from time to time between now and April 10th but will not be there permanently. Also, you may not have heard but you get 5 FR’s included with your Munzpak subscription this month.

 

*Easter Events themselves are not free. It’s a play on the first letter of each word. Flat Rob will be “set free” on the map.
