Coinz Of The Month Club

We’re proud to announce the latest addition to the MunzPak family: The Coinz of The Month Club! This monthly subscription service features two unique munzee game coins each month. The enamel coins include both a munzee coin code as well as an Extagz code. These limited edition items will come in a variety of fun designs and will be exclusive to this club. For $15 USD per month, you get a minimum of $20 worth of products.

Sign up for The Coinz Of The Month Club will be held Monday, January 16th at 3 PM CST at https://www.munzee.com/munzpak.

Space for the Coinz Of The Month Club is very limited so subscriptions are on a first come, first served basis. The first month is limited to the first 100 subscribers, but we plan on expanding the subscription limits in the future.

Just register once and then you will be charged monthly. You don’t have to do anything again. Each month, from the day you registered, we’ll send out your next Coinz Of The Month and it will be on your door or in your inbox as fast as the Munzee elves can get it there. Or at least as fast as standard mail ships. (NOTE: The monthly cycle begins on the 16th of each month, i.e. new coins and spaces in the service become available on the 16th.)

Alongside new Coins every month, Coinz Of The Month subscribers will also earn an awesome new badge just for joining!

The Munzee 2017 Theme

In 2017 Team Munzee has big plans that will test our abilities. We are going to spread the word about Munzee far and wide.

Our goal is simple: Everyone. Everywhere.

Our worldwide game gets bigger every day, so we want to include new players and areas as well as continue to grow our current communities. We can’t do it alone, though! With the help of our passionate players, we know even more people worldwide will embrace our game in the year to come.

To kick off the new year we’ve taken some of the photos our Munzee players have uploaded while playing and posted them into this collage of the world. Our game is worldwide in both places and people and 2017 will take that all to the next level.

Visit https://2017.munzee.com/ to check out this interactive collage. Just zoom in with your computer’s mouse wheel to see photos taken from players like YOU! You can also check out an excerpt of the Letter From The President, see some of 2016’s gameplay statistics, and follow links to other Year In Review blog posts.

Over the next 12 months, we have all sorts of exciting stuff planned, and we want you involved every step of the way. Use the hashtags #MunzEE and #E1EW to let us know how you embrace “Everyone. Everywhere.” all year long.

Happy New Year and cheers to everyone, everywhere!

2016- Letter From The President

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.

As I sit and reflect on 2016, I’m not even sure how to encompass the entire year in one quick letter. There have been some amazing moments and some very difficult ones as well. As usual we’ve made some tweaks that have been wildly popular and others that have touched a nerve. Through it all I can honestly look back on the year and see that each choice along the path has lead us to the best possible place to launch into 2017, with an “All In” enthusiasm.

I’ve had the opportunity to visit new locations across the world this year in order to help you spread the word about Munzee. Each trip allows me to meet players that are the core to our game, and I hope you know that our interactions mean the world to me. I enjoy hearing the stories of improved health, weight loss, and how Munzee has introduced you to a worldwide community of people you now call friends. The same is true for me. Physically I’m in the best shape of the past 20 years, due in no small part to our MunzFit initiative. You can look forward to a renewed focus on this sector of our game in 2017. I currently have plans to send members of the team to events all over the world, with announcements being prepared for the upcoming months. Here’s a sneak peek for a few we will attend, and others we already have our eyes on as possibilities. If you would like to be considered for a visit by Team Munzee get your event on the calendar soon and start promoting it! We are quickly finalizing details on a unique location and opportunity to celebrate our 6th birthday. However, we want to go ahead and invite you to join the party in Muncie, Indiana from the 21st of July through the 23rd. We are also working on tools for you to use to reach out to your local organizations to spread the word about Munzee. Worldwide events are our main tool to grow this game, so we will invest our resources in streamlining the processes and providing you even more necessary tools to be amazing!

I’ve been fortunate to present donations to several charitable organizations on behalf of our worldwide player base. It is part of the mission of Munzee to build strong communities, and this giving back is our way of doing this locally and globally. In 2017 you will see our charity-based focus continue to shine through. This is core to who we are and what we believe Munzee should do. We will continue to look for charities that have the ability to impact global communities. This ties in with our 2017 theme, which will be announced in the coming days.

I’ve been asked to share with you some of the things you can expect from Munzee for 2017. As most of you know, I possess a talent for being completely vague in responding to questions about the future. Many times in the past it is because we literally had not planned beyond the things you already knew about (that’s serious transparency there). I’m proud to say we are approaching 2017 with MANY things already in motion for expansions to current things and introducing new programs alike. *Drumroll please*…I’m excited to announce ZeeOps is almost here! We have been working diligently behind the scenes to bring this to life. The basic premise behind ZeeOps is best described as individual clan wars. There will be an opportunity for you to earn, and purchase, Zee Credits (I’m calling it Zee Cred) to be redeemed for ZeeOps which will contain daily missions. When the ZeeOp (Operation) is completed you will earn rewards. All the details will be released in the next 1000 hours, so get ready for an amazing kick off to 2017. In addition we have been excited about the buzz around our Munzee coin line. We have been working diligently to design new styles and have great news for you early in the New Year about this fun addition to the game. This will include a full explanation of what Coinz are and how to use them. A Roverhaul is being discussed with probable implementation as we enter the MHQ summer months. We will have some awesome monthly themes you will see across the entire company in many facets.

I’m proud of our team and what we have accomplished this year. As in every company individuals come and go from time to time, and we have seen several members of the team move on this year. It was difficult in the moment but the remaining team has stepped in and made the best of every opportunity. I’m fortunate to lead a worldwide family of team members that are motivated everyday to do their best for you, our players. In the end we all want to provide the best experience for you, so you will share our little game with your friends and family. You are our most valuable team member and resource and we remember that daily. In 2017 we will grow our MHQ staff, focusing on the tech team in order to provide more timely updates to our apps and websites. We have invested heavily in our infrastructure in 2016 with plans in 2017 to prepare for, and push on toward 500,000 players worldwide across Munzee Inc games. We will launch an Android version of our popular collection game, WallaBee in early 2017. We will also focus on finding additional partnerships to expand the reach of Munzee.

In closing, I have to say I’m humbled and deeply honored to continue to serve as President of a company that provides the games we do. I will continue to lead our company in line with our mission, to provide innovative apps that build community and make a worldwide impact. If I’ve never had the privilege to interact with you, I hope this year I am able. I’m fairly active in our Facebook groups, occasionally on Twitter or Instagram, and always available via Munzee message (coachV). Additionally, you can find me in my two dimensional version in app anytime I’m away from the office. 🙂 Thank you for the difference you make in my life, and the lives of our team members, through playing one of our “games”. It’s my personal mission to make a difference in your life as well. Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and Munzee On!

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.

MWTM Wrap Up

We’d like to say thank you for everyone who was able to join us at our Munzee With Team Munzee events throughout the year. Rain, cold, wind, nor heat could stop us from having a great time hanging out with the community and growing the map. As we’ve said before, today’s MWTM event was the last of the year due to holidays throughout the rest of the year. We love getting out with you and playing this wonderful game.

We can’t wait to see even more of you next weekend at Lone Star Bash! We’re excited to make even more great memories!

Munzee on!

Meet Munzee Munday: Judy Nguyen

Here at Munzee we’re constantly encouraging our players to meet and greet and build the personal relationships that make this game so great. Our team continues to grow and we’re excited with the addition of Judy Nguyen.


387998_2424252012886_742180605_nName and Title:


Judy Nguyen – Web Designer/Developer

Where are you from?

I grew up in a small town called Yukon, OK (the home of Garth Brooks, he never visits) right outside of Oklahoma City until I was sixteen and moved to the DFW area after that to be closer to family.

Tell us about yourself:
Pretty nerdy, laid back, introverted (but that doesn’t mean I don’t like meeting new people!).

I graduated from the University of Texas at Dallas with a BA in Arts and Technology. Initially I wasn’t sure what direction I wanted to take my degree, ended up getting interested in web development, studied a lot about it, and here I am! 🙂

How long have you worked for Munzee?
Approximately 1 month and 2 days.

What do you enjoy most about Munzee?
I’ve only been here for a month, so I’m still getting the hang of things, but so far the best part of working at Munzee are the people that work here. Everyone is proactive and open to new thoughts and ideas.1911278_10201742787478626_1028306444_o

What are some of your other hobbies?
I’m pretty obsessed with learning new things, which can range from teaching myself how to knit to hacking around with Raspberry Pi. In the era of the internet, learning how to do *anything* is just a Google search away.

When I’m not spending time nerding out learning about code and design, I enjoy playing video games (Fallout, Civilization, Stardew Valley are some of my faves). I also like dabbling in arts and crafts. I love music and enjoy finding new music to listen to (mad props to Discover Weekly on Spotify!). I also watch a lot of Netflix!
Any last words?

The Dragon Slayer

Sometimes it is good to take a quick break from 100% Munzee posts and let you know something personal about members of Team Munzee. Especially when one of our members accomplishes something amazing that needs to be shared! Today that team member is Louise. You probably know her as our Munzee Events Manager and have dealt with her if you have ever hosted an event. On June 5th she added another title after her name, The Dragon Slayer.

Louise made it clear from day one she is a serious cyclist but no one was prepared for the feat she would accomplish on June 5th. She cycled in the Dragon Ride L’Etape Wales by le Tour de France. The Dragon Ride is a grueling 100 kilometer (~60 mile) race through the mountains of Wales, near Cardiff. The course consisted of nearly 5000 feet of vertical elevation change with three mountains and warm temperatures on the sunny day. Louise battled through it all and was the first female to cross the line, in style on her bright pink Bianchi bike. The entire race took Louise 3 hours, 48 minutes, and 8 seconds. Not only was she the first female, but only 5 males beat her across the line. editors note: we blame the traffic lights she got stopped at on the open road course, otherwise she would have beat the boys too.

Well done Louise! You have made Munzee proud and we look forward to your next race!

LouTheChamp

Notice the Munzee on her sleeve? We are proud to be one of her sponsors. Also DBA Sports, VeloFlow, and Bicycle Richmond. Her indoor training is done with brilliant instructors at The Marlow Club. And that sweet pink bike is a Bianchi.

You’ll also notice this post goes live at an unusual time for MHQ information. We like to aim for 10am and 2-3pm. This post is about our UK employee so it seems fitting we launch it at 10am in the UK. 🙂 We are a worldwide game, and company, after all.

Now we hope you understand more about the inspiration behind the MunzFit events. Speaking of events we know she would encourage all of you to check out the Munzee calendar and click here to look for events near you!

Keep Calm and Munzee On!
