6 Million Deployed Munzees!

We’ve reached a new milestone. On April 19th, the 6 Millionth active munzee was deployed in the Netherlands by zoekix!

For the past (almost) six years, we’ve watched Munzee grow in amazing ways. We were thrilled when the 1 Millionth munzee was deployed in January 2014. Three years later, Munzee has reached new heights and is only poised to go higher. For now, though, we’re celebrating what you, our players, have built.

First off, zoekix’s greenie deploy is now a special icon worth 6 points.

We want everyone to get in on the celebration, though, so we’re also going to put out specials using this 6 Million icon!

From 12:00 MHQ time on Friday, April 28th through 12:00 MHQ time on Thursday, May 4th, 600 “6 Millionth Munzee” specials will be bouncing on greenies every 6 hours or when captured, and you WILL be able to capture them on your own munzees. You will receive 20 points for capturing one of these specials, and the owner of the host greenie will earn 17 points.

Thank you so much for your support and help with growing the map. We can’t wait to see the game and community grow even more.

Munzee on!

MHQ is moving offices!

We’re excited to announce that Munzee Headquarters is expanding in a big way! We have upgraded our offices to a much larger space which we will be debuting in grand fashion. The new spot is located at 1720 Bray Central Drive – McKinney, TX 75069, a few miles away from our previous offices.

We know everyone will be eager to deploy around our new office, but we have some big plans in store too! A deploy exclusion zone has been placed over the surrounding area, but this will be readjusted in the near future. There is a small physical exclusion zone around the property so we don’t bother the other tenants in the building.

As everyone knows moving can be a bit tiresome, so we are asking that anyone who wants to visit MHQ hold off until May 12th so we can get ourselves in order (exceptions for those who have already contacted us or have plans in place). Worry not though, because we’re doing it big with an open house!

Join Team Munzee in person for the grand opening of our new offices on May 12th from 2-5 PM MHQ. We will have snacks, prizes, a new MHQ grand opening badge, event indicator pin, and many more surprises!

Be sure to let us know you’ll be joining in the fun at We know not everyone can make it to TX though, so we will broadcast live on FB for anyone who can’t attend the ceremony!

Stay tuned for more info about the new space, our grand opening and more soon!

Player of the Week: Anu Sundell (anski)

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 Anu Sundell (anski).

Who are you?

Hi, my name is Anu, and my player name is anski.

I am a photographer with my own studio. My clientele is mostly children and families. I love my job and have been fortunate to make a dear hobby into a profession.

Where in the world do you live?
I live in Kokkola which is a small town in Finland. Even though our town isn’t big, it is one of the most active towns in Finland where Munzee is played. We have a good number of active players.

How long have you played Munzee?
I have been playing since August 2013.

How did you find Munzee?
I found my first QR code in a cache and was very curious to find out what it was. I scanned it with a QR reader and found my answer! Excited as ever, I rushed home to a computer to find out more. In no time, I had my own Munzee profile set up.

At that time, there were only a few greenies on the map, and 100 points in a day was definitely something else! I am one of the first players in the area. Nowadays, there is a good sized group of active players in the area whcih I am super excited about.

What do you most enjoy about Munzee?
Along with my husband (Tomppa71), I am really into Clan Wars. We both are members of the NorthernWestCoast clan. Due to the number of active players in the area, there are other active clans as well which we like to cooperate with. Reaching common goals and getting to know the other players are aspects of the game that I really like. Being in a clan has given me the opportunity to meet numerous new players. Munzee takes you to new places and encourages you to get out and about.

What is on your wish list?
I enjoy the various themed specials that luckily appear on the map rather often. They give added spice to Clan Wars. So, my wish is for Munzee to keep that up. The downside to having multiple active players in a small town is that just about all the poles are taken already. Hence, it would be nice to have a virtual that acted like a greenie. In other words, you would have to be at the location to deploy. With “virtual greenies”, it would be possible to build new trails, e.g. on nature trails. Having the same filters on the website map as in the app would help when planning where to go and what to cap.

Tell us about yourself!
As a Munzee players, I am more into tactics than capping the most possible points. I set up my goals according to Clan War requirements. I mostly play in the vicinity of my hometown, but I do have plans to visit some point heavy areas in the future. Maybe the next vacation destination will be chosen with the help of the Munzee map 😉

Other hobbies include:
During summers, I spend a lot of time in our vacation spot at a camping site in Kalajoki, Finland. As it happens, it is also an active Munzee area. It is also a fantastic site for walking by the sea, admiring gorgeous sunsets. I actually spend most of my free with my dear hobby, Munzee.

Any last words?
I would like to thank those whom nominated me. I am really surprised and excited about this. A great, big thank you to Team Munzee for a great game. Munzee on!

anski has included some socials, so cap away!

Player of the Week: Sandra Corbin (humbird7)

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 Sandra Corbin (humbird7).

Who are you?

Hi! My name is Sandra Corbin, and my Munzee name is humbird7. I love hummingbirds, and it just seemed too long of a name, so I shortened it. The 7 is because I was born on the 7th; the best day ever.

Where in the world do you live?
I live about 30 miles north of Montgomery, Alabama in a very small community; don’t blink or you may just miss it. I was born in Missouri and moved to Alabama when I was 7. I have been here ever since (except for 2 years spent in college in Tennessee).

How long have you played Munzee?
I started playing Munzee on November 17, 2013, but it doesn’t seem that long.

How did you find Munzee?
I was at a caching event and overheard some other players talking about Munzee. I didn’t think that much of it, but then a few days later I was looking for a cache while traveling. It was missing, but in its place, I found a munzee. I sat on the nearby bench, created an account, and scanned my first munzee. I have been hooked ever since. I picked up my cousin for the rest of the trip and was always on the search for a munzee. There weren’t many along our route to rural Missouri from Tennessee, but I did find a few. When I got back home, I was so happy to see quite a few in the area, and I haven’t slowed down since.

What do you most enjoy about Munzee?
I love getting out and seeing places that I would not have found unless there was a munzee there. Also, I love meeting people from all over the world who are as I am about the game. I cherish the friendships I have made.

What is on your wish list?
My top wish is that the virtuals would not block physical placement; that there would be 2 layers to the game. Say, you visit Celebration Park and want to leave a physical, you can’t because of all of the virtuals in the area.

I would also like the option of upgrading old Mystery Virtuals for a small fee so that the owner would receive more than 3 CapOn points.

I would like a 250K Day badge as well as some myth badges for 250, 500, 1000, and the king of capping 1500 unique myths. I know this may be hard for some people, including myself, but it’s always good to have a goal.

Tell us about yourself!
I am a nurse, and I work in all kinds of areas. My favorite is the Neonatal Intensive Care; you can make a difference for the rest of a person’s life. I also work adult ICE and surgery. In the past, I have done Home Health, Case Management, Utilization Review, and a little in the ER. I feel like this makes me a more rounded nurse so I can take better care of my patients be they big or small. I have an amazing husband of 35 years, Rodney. He lets me go all over the country to play this crazy game. He did go with me to the first MHQ bash, but it wasn’t his cup of tea, so he says at home and keeps it going and feeds the pups.

Other hobbies include:
What? There is a life outside of Munzee? Caching, fishing, reading, machine embroidery, and gardening. I love to camp, but the arthritis now make it hard to get off the ground.

Any last words?
I would like to thank whomever nominated me for this honor. I was so excited and thrilled to get the notification! Thanks to my Munzee partner OHail for all the impromptu trips we go on. You never know where we will turn up next.

humbird7 also include some socials, so cap away!

Featured Munzee Toolkit: Alex Williams (Squonk)

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 Alex Williams (Squonk).

Who are you? 
I’m Alex Williams, and my username is Squonk. My family also plays as hardcorepistachio, squirrelwithsombrero, Zappa, and kwyjibo.

What’s in your toolkit?
I mostly play on my own and carry 1 accordion wallet that consists of everything: generics, batch processed greenies, Fire, Ice, Shamrocks, Earth, gems, evolutions, urban camo generics, 1 dog tag, a couple of RPS, and Mystery Munzees. The wallet goes with me EVERYWHERE.

I never leave home without having the family toolkit in my car for when they join me to play. It consists of:

  • a 2nd wallet as a back up for when we have a specific goal and only want to take the essentials for said goal plus a few generics.
  • 2 small tackle boxes:
    • One contains — more generics, RPS, Mysteries, hard plastic generics (that I got at an event attended by Rob and Dylan), and batch processed greenies for the kids.
    • The other contains — coinz, dog tags and beaded chains, nails, and zip ties for affixing dog tags to trees, fence posts, and wooden poles.
  • . tin with my batch processed greenies.
  • a tin of urban camos.
  • Back-up battery packs, charging cords, and plug-in chargers
  • a tube of Gorilla Glue (not pictured)
  • a Swiss-army knife (not pictured)

This winter, the toolkit also included a thermos of hot water and an ice scraper. We had a severe winter, and I had to scrape ice off many light poles in order to cap.

Munzee on!

Munzee Newsletter: March 2017

In March we celebrated our favorite color- GREEN. We also gave back to some wild friends with the help of our players, announced some birthday plans, crashed at a couple hotels and updated the app. 

Take a look back on some of the things that happened this month and what to expect next month as well!

We kicked off the month with Safar-Zee, a fundraising effort focused on helping wildlife worldwide. For the month of March we sold Paw Print special virtual icons with proceeds going to help wildlife rescue organizations. As always our players showed their enthusiasm from the start and have already helped In-Sync Exotics and our newly adopted tiger Mystery.

The special Paw Prints will be on the map through 23:59 MHQ Time on April 30, 2017. The virtual garden above In-Sync is permanent. 


Greet Garfield in Munzee, IN!

This month we announced some of Munzee’s 6th Birthday celebration plans to take over Muncie, Indiana and turn 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.

Munzee Gone GREEN

We celebrated St. Patrick’s Day weekend in full force with a triple point weekend on some of our favorite green munzees, expediated Leprechauns and a limited time Leprechaun badge line!

Needless to say, our players made the most of the weekend and Saturdaywas in the Top 10 Overall days of both captures and deploys.


At Your Service

While February kept players busy capturing the treacherous Jewel Thief on precious stones, in March a new stealthy fella began roaming the halls of Hotels and Motels worldwide.

He claims he’s just here to help you with your bags though, so be sure to leave a tip for the new Bellhop Nomad Munzee!

The up-Dating Game

This month we updated Munzee to version 3.3.2. Be sure to update your app to make the most of the following new features.

  • Changes to the Own Socials list to fit overall look and feel.
  • Added the ability to deploy Socials from the player’s Details page.
  • Fixed photo submission issues for Places Munzees.
  • Added the ability to choose between select installed navigation apps.
  • Added a quick way to reset and activate all filters.
  • Updated the scanner.
  • Updated translations.
  • Minor bug fixes and improvements.


Coming in April…

– We know we’ve been BASHful, but stay tuned for some news soon.

– Jokes on you, this started already.

– Have any righteous Referrals? Asking for a friend…
