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!
Come one come all for the Cirque Du Munz! Join our Texas offices next month for our Under The Big Top birthday celebration in North Texas.
On Saturday July 14th, 2018 at 10 AM the MHQ Staff will celebrate seven silly years at Celebration Park in Allen, TX. This park is a former MHQ Bash location and has continued to be a hotspot of Munzee activity so come ready to cap! When the flats are out this field is really covered!
The event will feature an awesome badge (featured below), some event goodies, circus themed snacks and more! You can also bet there might be some exclusive personals for sale.
Like a good sibling, WallaBee will also be supporting Munzee’s big birthday with a Unique and some spectacular Circus Set stickers! Be sure to bring your passport books. The Unique will be available worldwide, but a special variant will be available to those in attendance.
Be sure to go to https://calendar.munzee.com/MHQ7/ and RSVP so we know how many to expect!
Stay tuned for more Birthday news in the coming weeks and Munzee on!

Birthday month has officially ended, but it was a resounding success. Members of Team Munzee loved visiting player events all across the world, which couldn’t have been done without the help of Louise, the Munzee Events Manager. Check out her quick recap of last month’s festivities!
It’s August, our birthday month is finally over, wow, what a busy month that was!!!
Thank you to all of you for your incredible support of Munzee events last month. There were 110 events that took place throughout July and the 6th Birthday Super Rob special was capped an amazing 4,673 times! We gave out thousands of Emeralds with the Dan the Man special and have some fantastic new gardens around the world. We also reached new highs with the events in Germany being the first to hit over 250 attendees, something we haven’t even done at MHQ!
I particularly enjoyed working with new hosts last month, great to see players stepping forward to grow the game in their areas. Please feel free to get into hosting at any time. I will guide you through the whole process and issue you with all the instructions and information you need.
Thank you also for your patience with me over the last month, I was extremely busy with my bicycle races too. Happy to report they are all now completed and I had a wonderful time and picked up a few more wins and fantastic experiences both in England and the French Alps.
I am now recovering at MHQ and catching up with work. I am still shutting down some of the birthday events and awarding host badges so don’t worry if you haven’t got yours yet!
Look out for some more events near your on the calendar (link https://calendar.munzee.com/) over the next couple of months, get your events on the calendar (link https://calendar.munzee.com/submit) and I look forward to communicating details of our next big events drive soon.
When we released Munzee 3.0 in 2015, we added the ability for players to add pictures at location of Munzees. So for nearly two years our players have gathered quite the collection of photos while munzeeing. Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to see all of those photos in one collected place? Well you’re in luck!
We’re proud to announce that you can now access a photo gallery of images you have taken and attached to Munzees! To access a player’s gallery just go to their online profile and click “More” to access the photo gallery. There you can scroll through and check out some of their greatest hits!
We had a SUPER good time during MHQ’s Birthday Bash! Players from all over joined us for a fun afternoon at the MHQ offices last Friday. They walked away with Birthday Comic skinned stickers, were the first to get their hands on some awesome Munzee Worldwide apparel, and earned more than a couple badges! Everyone showed off their heroic profiles in the Eventzee photo backdrop with a wide array of superhero costumes.
Thank you again to everyone who came and we’re excited to see all of you and more at MHQ Bash in the Fall!
Happy birthday to us and Munzee on!
Check out the photo gallery below to see some of the fun!
Greetings everyone! This message comes to you on behalf of Louise, our events manager, based in the UK. It is mainly for the hosts of previous and upcoming events however some information is helpful to all players as well.
In case you didn’t know July has already been a record breaking month for events in many ways. Our largest event ever happened in Bielefeld Germany with over 250 attendees. We’ve seen well over 2,000 players attend more than 50 events around the world. AND we’re only half way through the month with more events on the way!
In addition to all of this activity, we let you know in advance that Louise would be very busy on the personal side of her life during the month. She’s had multiple long distance bike races with another happening at the end of the month. This past weekend she competed in L’Etape du Tour in the French Alps, aka Stage 18 of this years Tour de France (being raced by the professionals in two days). It was a grueling 125 mile (200 km) race with over 12000 feet (4000 m) of elevation change, over two mountain passes, but we are happy to report she completed it with no major injuries or issues. Team Munzee is proud of our “cycling queen” for this major achievement as she smashed the course in less than 10 hours! If you’d like to see a satellite overview video of her race please click here.
In addition to the time away for the race she was unexpectedly delayed due to the airport closure at London Gatwick, and subsequently Lyon France. She’s arrived home safe and sound now but has a mountain of emails and event wrap up to do (fortunately she’s proven she can climb mountains!). We appreciate your patience as she works her way through all of her usual work over the next 48-72 hours. This includes any new event submissions over the last week.
Munzee On and once again CONGRATULATIONS TO LOUISE!
Wouldn’t it be great if you could easily swap out old virtual munzees in popular destinations for newer virtuals worth more points? Well now you can!
We’re excited to announce that you can now easily swap out many virtual munzees!
Using the Munzee website you can now go back to your older virtual type munzees and swap in new virtual types and MVMs. By using the Virt Swap tool, you can instantly archive your old virtual type munzee and deploy the new one in the exact same spot. No waiting periods and no losing your spot! This also opens up the opportunity for players to re-capture high density areas, if new virtuals are deployed.
With the Virt Swap tool almost any virtual type can be replaced by almost any virtual type.**
For example, you can swap an old green virtual for a new virtual sapphire in the exact same location. You could also swap an old yellow mystery virtual for a new MVM and add a yellow color credit. It’s good as new and ready for people to come and cap it! Imagine the cap on points you will receive with the strategically placed MVM versus the old virtual points.
Please note that when you swap out an old virtual you must use a new munzee that has not been previously deployed. Since you’re swapping out for a totally new munzee the points for the old virt captures will not change.
To celebrate the release of this new tool MVMs are on sale for $4 and for every MVM purchased you’ll get a free color credit as well. Go to the Munzee Online Store and stock up now!
To swap out a virtual just do the following:
- Go to your online Munzee profile.
- Go to your undeployed munzees and copy the number code from the replacement virtual item URL.
- Go to your deployed munzees and choose the virtual you want to replace.
- Click “Edit Details,” scroll down and paste the new number code in the specified area.
Check out the video below to see the Virt Swap in action (you may need to pause and rewind to fully get it):
**You cannot change any of the following munzees using the Virt Swap tool:

Hello from a swelteringly hot London!
I hope you’re all getting excited about July and all the 6th Birthday events. There are 80 on the calendar to choose from! It’s not too late to get your events on there, it’s quite late for artwork though, our designers’ diaries are full to bursting and we can only accommodate pretty simple requests for July at this stage I’m afraid.
Trish has recently finished the badges for attending and hosting, they are SUPER! Here is a sneak preview for you. There are 4 host badges up for grabs, the Super Scott, Super Matt, Super Trish and Super Dylan. I’m on the Attendee Badge and there is an icon featuring Super Rob for everyone who goes to a Birthday event and captures the Event Indicator Pin.
Don’t forget that Dan the Man will be giving freebies to all attendees when they capture the event badge if the host has opted for that $20 extra and there will be surprises thrown in for all Birthday events as per usual, don’t miss out, plan your event today!
Stay safe and Munzee On!
MHQ is hosting a Spectacular 6th Birthday Bash in July and we want you to join us! We’ll have snacks and of course some celebratory cupcakes, as well as SUPER new badge.
The event will run from 2-5 PM, on July 14th at MHQ and members of Team Munzee will be hanging out. We’ll also have some fun party favors for those in attendance, so don’t miss out!
We’ll have a lot more birthday announcements to make over the next few weeks, but we wanted to make sure everyone had enough time to plan ahead. Be sure to RSVP to the event on the Munzee Calendar so we can get an idea of how many people we’re expecting.
Don’t forget that you can also host your own Munzee Birthday event, but sign up soon!
