Our Go Green events are in full swing, and they’ve been great so far! Along with the events, hosts are choosing winners for the Go Green Competition. Below is a gallery of the winners so far. As more come in, we’ll update this gallery. Thanks to all the great hosts and players attending Go Green events! Munzee on!
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.
Here is a preview of the 4 badges available for hosts:
Attendees, I hope you’re getting your green clothes ready for the competition, you will be receiving this badge just for attending:
Go Green and Munzee On!

The time has come to reveal the plans for the next lot of Munzee Event Packages! We are inviting you to host Go Green Munzee Events all over the world. Would only be right to kick off these events with the King of Green, St Patrick himself, on Saturday 17th March and run them all the way through Easter and on to Earth Day on Sunday 22nd April.
We would love to see Munzee events encouraging green initiatives such as getting outside, picking up litter and wearing green. In fact, there will be a badge for the winner of the Go Green Competition at each Munzee event during this period. The host needs to send a photo and the player name to me after the event of the attendee that wears the most green clothing.
The packages for these Go Green Events are as follows:
The Seeds Package – Basic event + no proximity = $30
The Sapling Package – The Seeds Package + 5 Mystery virtuals = $35
The Tree Package – The Sapling Package + Badge & Icon = $135
The Forest Package – The Tree Package + Eventzee = $185
Add an Emerald for attendees to any Go Green event for $20
First step is to get your events on the calendar here and let me know your order once your event has been published.
I look forward to working with you and seeing you all Go Green!
Thank you and Munzee On!
Although August usually tends to be a cool down after July’s big birthday month, this year we kept very busy! We gave our players a hand, flew high in the sky and even started treasure hunting. Take a look back on some of the things that happened last month and what to expect this month as well!
A HUGE thank you is in order to all of our players worldwide! Our community pulled together to help out after the devastating effects of Hurricane Harvey in South Texas. Through the sale of Water Mysteries and Assorted Mini Packs, as well as WallaBee Mixers, we gathered $7,500 in donations for relief efforts.
We can’t express how proud we are to have such a great community that rallies around those in need. Thank you, again, for your support and generosity.
To celebrate International Left Handers Day and all of our left-handed players, we released a fun special at the beginning of the month! The Leftie Specials bounced all over the globe and to recognize the 10% of the population that is left handed these specials also had a 10% chance of scattering a Left Handed Thumbs Up icon.
The Thumbs Up were pretty rare to come by, but Munzee Magnets helped out!
This month the majestic Pegasus Mythological Munzee took to the skies. Although other Myths like the Faun and Hydra land on Greenies and specific physical Elemental Munzees, the Pegasus is a different kind of beast. The Pegasus bounces on all colors of Virtual Munzees, Mystery Virtual Munzees, and MVMs as well as Air Mystery Munzees.
Air Mystery Munzees are currently available in the Munzee Online Store!
Avast, me hearties! This month we announced the new Treasure Evolution Munzee as a Munzee reseller exclusive! Our resellers are great at promoting and being ambassadors for Munzee and its community so thank you to them for helping us grow the game! Like other Evolution Munzees, the Treasure Munzee consists of three stages and evolves over time.
Purchase Treasure Munzees through one of our Munzee Resellers!
We released a ton of new badges last month!
With the release of the Pegasus we expanded all of the various badges for capturing Myths.
– We’re going ALL IN!
– Stay in shape, fight Fit.
– All the colors of the Rainbow.
Birthday month has come and gone and with the help of our players we celebrated six years in a very big way! Take a look back on some of the things that happened last month and what to expect this month as well!
We ended Birthday Month with some HUGE news: Munzee and our partner Freeze Tag Inc. are merging companies! For the last year, Munzee and Freeze Tag have been working together in various ways on Garfield GO! and as the saying goes “two heads are better than one.” The leadership team at Freeze Tag are top notch guys with vast experience in building apps and bringing in new players.
We are excited to see their team join the Munzee family and help us all Grow the Game(s)!
To celebrate 6 spectacular years, we released Comic Book special icons for the entire month. When captured the specials scattered three onomatopoeia icons- BAM!, POW! and BANG! Players who managed to capture all 3 were able to earn a special comic book panel badge too!
These alongside the Munzee Magnets were an awesome way to kick off Birthday Month!
Birthday Events were a huge hit 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 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! Thank you to all of our awesome Event Hosts!
Remember, you can host your own events by submitting them HERE!
Oh, The Places You’ll Go!
Last month we were proud to announce that Places Munzeesare now available to the public for purchase! Now players can deploy their own Airports, Sports Stadiums, Wildlife and Museum munzees all across the world.
You can purchase Places Munzees in the Munzee Online Store!
A Breath of Fresh Air
At the tailend of Birthday Month we were proud to announce the creation of the Air Mystery Munzee! This virtual Elemental Munzee is the first of it’s kind and is currently exclusive to Virtual MunzPak subscribers in August. When capped, the Air Mystery Munzee scatters three temporary virtual Feathers. When those feathers are captured, they have a chance of throwing three ultra rare temporary virtual Golden Feathers.
You can still sign up for August’s Virtual MunzPak HERE!
– Master the elements with new Elemental Munzee badges!
– High-flying fun is on the way.
– Thumbs up are in order.
Now that’s how you celebrate Birthday month!
Thanks to the might of our players we broke numerous Munzee records this weekend! With Matt and Rob attending events both nationally and internationally, and the rest of the team on deck we were ready for a big weekend, but once again our players have taken it to the next level.
On Saturday we clocked in an AMAZING 1,002,986 captures in a single day! The rest of the weekend was just as crazy with 511,567 on Friday and 789,303 on Sunday totaling over two million captures all weekend! We can’t even begin to show our gratitude to the players worldwide for helping us hit this milestone.
We also saw our largest Munzee Events EVER this weekend. Germany was the place to be with three events all with over 200 attendees! Saturday’s event in Bielefeld, Germany had 261 event indicator captures which is the largest event a Munzee player has ever hosted. We’ll need to step up our game for MHQ Bash! Rob will certainly have plenty to say about his European adventures when he gets back, so stay tuned to hear more.
We’d like to extend a BIG thank you to Scott, Daniel and the tech team for handling this huge weekend with zero downtime. As many of you know we’re always working hard to better our infrastructure, and tests like this showcase how far we’ve come.
Of course, thank you to all of our players worldwide for helping us continue to grow and exceed expectations! We can’t grow the game without you, so cheers to all!
One of the many great things about Munzee is the never-ending supply of unique, sometimes absurd, artwork that our designers continue to churn out day after day. The many different styles of our graphic designers have become a hallmark of the game so we’re excited to be able to offer some of those pieces as posters in the online store.
Currently we have a handful of designs including the ZeeOps Mission Icons, the completed Birthday Comic Panel and Timeshare Munzee badges. We’d love for more suggestions about your favorite Munzee, WallaBee and Eventzee artwork though, so let us know!
Posters come in a variety of sizes and prices, so whether you’re decorating your office or your home there’s a fit for you!
Check out the collection in the Munzee Online Store HERE!
We spent a lot of June preparing for Birthday month in July, but we were happy to make some big announcements too. Take a look back on some of the things that happened last month and what to expect this month as well!
– We’ve added an in-app ZeeOps dashboard to track your operations.
– The main menu now features accompanying icons for all entries.
– Badge details now show the original description even after a badge has been earned.
– The coin discover request popup will now only show as toast message (transparent at the bottom) when not on the coins page.
– Improved scanner (focus issues for some phones are fixed)
– Minor fixes and improvements
Just Add Water!
This physical munzee type may hold the key to the Fountain of Youth, but it is not without its risks. When you cap the scattered water droplet you have the chance of drinking pure water, toxic water or salt water!
Purchase Water Mysteries and other Elementals in the Munzee Store!
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 with the new Virt Swap tool! Using the Munzee website you can now go back to your older virtual type munzees and swap in new virtual types and MVMs.
Stock up on new MVMs in the Munzee Online Store!
Can you feel the attraction? In June we revealed the Munzee Magnets as a part of July Physical MunzPaks! These brand new items are temporary credits you can use to attract Seasonal Specials and Mythological Munzees for a set amount of time. It’s easy, you just Magnetize a greenie of your choosing and that munzee will then attract up to 3 specials or myths for up to one hour!
Sign up for a Physical MunzPak and get 10 Magnet credits!
Munzee was proud to work with our partner Freeze Tag to launch Garfield GO this month!
Garfield GO is a brand new augmented reality treasure hunting game, featuring everyone’s favorite lasagna-loving cat! Odie has scattered Garfield’s comic collection and buried treasures around the world — Help Garfield get them all back, while scavenging for hidden chests along the way!
Coming in July…
– Spectacular 6th Birthday Comic Book Specials are on the map!
– Check out the Calendar to find a Munzee Birthday Event near you!
– Oh, the Places you’ll go!
We thought it would be nice to update everyone on a few upcoming times Rob will be out of the office, and therefore Flat Rob will be coming out to play! The July dates will give everyone a chance to plan ahead. We hope everyone enjoys seeing Flat Rob on the map. Stay tuned for more announcements soon about some *events you’ll be able to meet him (and Matt) at. Flat Robs may appear in the store sporadically during these times with no warning or additional blog posts. Additional dates for FR (and FM) to join the map are still being worked on for July and August! (Maybe more in June too?)
Jun 8 – 13
July 4 – 16
July 21 – 23
July 28 – 31
In May Munzee was busy moving into our new offices, but that’s not to say we didn’t keep our players busy too. Take a look back on some of the things that happened last month and what to expect this month as well!
We’ve spent the last couple months getting the ALL NEW Munzee Headquarters up and running! We have upgraded our offices to a much larger space which is ideal for our constantly growing staff. The new building is located just a few miles from our previous headquarters too, so we still get to call McKinney, TX home.
Some of our players helped us break in the new location with our MH-New Open House event and they even got to see us monkeying around first hand!
Flat Matt Has Hit The Map!
In November 2015 Flat Rob was released and he’s been traveling the world ever since. All that travel can be a bit lonely though, so we’re excited to release a similarly two-dimensional friend- Flat Matt!
Although Flat Rob comes out to play when Rob is traveling, Flat Matts will be live on the map during days with specific sporting events.
The Hydra is the latest Mythological Munzee, and the second in our Classical Myth line. Not much is known about this many-headed beast, although it is said to guard the fabled Fountain Of Youth.
Find a Hydra near you on the Specials Map!
The new Timeshare Munzee is the latest in our Destination line of munzees alongside the Motel, Hotel and Virtual Resort. This physical credit item features 5 Rooms so the first 5 players to cap the Timeshare get a room deployed. Here’s the kicker though, Rooms only stay deployed for 30 days!
Join Rockin’ Rob Vardeman and get your Timeshare in the Munzee Store TODAY!
Totally Tubular Turtles
To celebrate World Turtle Day on May 23rd, Munzee released turtle specials from May 19th through the 28th. These shell-shocking specials were a big hit and helped raise awareness about our slow-crawling friends.
Show your support and buy a World Turtle Day Coin HERE!
Coming in June…
– We’ve gone green to try and clean up the map.
– Don’t forget to keep hydrated.
