Join Rob and Garfield in Munzee, IN!

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!

Special thanks to PAWS Inc. for permission to use the likeness of Garfield in the Munzee game.

St. Patrick’s Day Weekend UPDATE

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:

  • Greenies
  • Shamrocks
  • Emeralds
  • Green Virtuals
  • Green Mystery Virtuals
  • Green MVMs
  • Dark Green MVMs

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.

Munzee on! #E1EW and Happy #StPatricksDay!

Featured Toolkit: Tracee Austin (tracee74)

One of the best parts about Munzee is that you can play how you want. Everyone goes about playing a bit differently, and that leads to some very creative and innovative uses of objects. From containers to bags to maintenance, we always encounter something new when we meet players. We want to showcase your Munzee Toolkits to see how you play the game and possibly even inspire other players who may need help. This week’s featured Munzee Toolkit comes from Tracee Austin (tracee74).

Username 
tracee74

What’s in your Munzee Toolkit?

We have 3 players in our house.

First, we have our organizers (small tackleboxes) for our munzees. We have our name on the outside of each box and then G (greenies) or S (special) on each compartment,

Next, we have what is actually a nail care kit that comes in handy for repairing munzees. I’ve actually saved a few that were painted over with this.

Then, we have out flashlight for finding the non-glow-in-the-dark munzees at night.

And finally, we have out bag. It fits all of our organizers, flashlight, and nail kit. It has a net pocket on the side that we put the the sticker backs in. It also has a pocket for my keys so I don’t have to keep track of them while out capping and deploying.


If you have a Munzee Toolkit that you’d like to show off, you can email us at [email protected] with the subject “Munzee Toolkit”. Make sure to include:

  • Your username and where you are from.
  • A few high quality photos.
  • A list of what each item is and how you use it.
  • What made you decide to use those items.
  • Any other relevant details.

We want to see your creativity and learn how you play. Show us what you’ve got!

Munzee on!

These special Paw Prints will be on sale from now until the end of the month and the munzees will stay on the map through 23:59 MHQ Time on April 30, 2017.

For $5 you get a pack of 5 different Paw Print icons, each featuring a different animal print: Paw, Talon, Hoof, Foot, and Claw. Players will be limited to 20 sets of five Paw Print specials,


Points:
30 Capture, 10 Deploy, 10 CapOn

There are also a variety of badges you can earn for capping and deploying these temporary icons.The Safar-Zee, Charity Paw Prints and Animal Expedition badges will only be available while the charity specials are on the map so get to capping.

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.

Checkout the virtual garden as it grows HERE.

On behalf of Team Munzee we thank our players for their support and look forward to lending a helping hand to those with paws. Munzee on!

Player of the Week: Deb Carter (Debolicious)

As Munzee has grown over the years, the game has evolved in so many more ways than any of the co-founders could have imagined. We’ve certainly had our fair share of growing pains, but in its essence Munzee has tried to stick to its core goal of getting people out into the world. No one knows this better than those players who have been with us since the beginning. This week’s Player of the Week is Deb Carter (Debolicious).

Who are you?
Hi, my name is Deb, and my player name is Debolicious. I’m a truck driver, and I am Munzee crazy. My long-suffering husband and I travel around Australia, so Munzee is the best for finding new places and exploring. I would have never seen the things I’ve seen if it wasn’t for #Munzee.

Where in the world do you live?
I live in Mackay. It’s in the beautiful tropical north of Queensland, Australia. I have only just returned from 3 years away, and I am trying my best to get more players. I am growing the map here quite quickly.

How long have you played Munzee?
I have been playing for about 3 years.

How did you find Munzee?
My best friend of 35 years Jody (nomadicjp) got me into it when Nicki (nicdchick), a lay she worked with, showed it to her. At the time, I was living in Mackay. I then moved to Perth, Western Australia and got to meet Nicki. I am now very good friends with her and a lot of Perth Munzee people. I got crazy about Munzee in Perth. That is where I learned a lot about Munzee, including the rules. Who would have thought there was a code of conduct?

What do you most enjoy about Munzee?
Being outside. I love trails in the bush the most, but sadly, I have found that most players are after quick points and tend to just UTL the well hidden ones. I love how Munzee takes you places that you would never have found it it wasn’t for the game. Now, i try to deploy in areas that I find enjoyable, places where visitors would like to see, and especially hidden spots that the average traveler would not generally find.

What is on your wish list?
I wish not to live in a places that had very few munzees and not many players (told you I am Munzee crazy). I also wish the most for an easy way to get the word out to new players in my area. Because Munzee is a business, I am finding it hard to get people to help me advertise it. I would also love for MHQ to create an all use flyer we could print off that would have all the details about the game on it since some of us don’t know how to use Photoshop. Maybe even a Zombie evolution series.

Tell us about yourself!
I would have to say the most exciting thing about my life are my awesome friends whom spoil me to no end. The highlight of my life was not only meeting Rob and Louise in real life but having some of my friends surprise me at the recent Australia Day event in Melbourne. I would like to think I’m pretty awesome, and my theory is I have lots of awesome people in my life, so if like attracts like, I too my be pretty dang awesome. 🙂

Other hobbies include:
Munzee, Munzee, Munzee. I used to dabble in photography, but now all of my time goes to Munzee and #GrowTheMap. I do love a good hike, and if I’m hiking, I;m usually struggling to breathe, so I don’t munzee on those trips. Ha ha. My other interests I guess are trying to be healthy and living a good, clean life. I have recently discovered I love cycling. Did I mention Munzee?

 

Any last words?
A shout out to my Munzee faves Brenda (Bewrightback), Julie (julesbeus), and Nicki (nicdchick). All from Perth and all whom I miss dearly living on the wrong side of the country. I’m pretty sure these are the ladies who nominated me. I am so super excited to be nominated and have a title. Thank you so very much, Munzeeland. I don’t know what I would be doing without you. xx #E1EW

PS: A link to my garden if you would like to throw a Virtual at me 🙂

Debolicious also include some socials, so cap away!

Newsletter: February 2017

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.

Learn more at zeeops.munzee.com!

 


Chocoholic

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.

Order Earth Mystery Munzees and Elemental Munzee Paks today!

 


Tea Time!

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.

We’ve also changed the prices on the Mini Urban Camo Munzees to $5 for 20 stickers.

 


Coming in March…
