Announcing June POTM and GOTM Winners! (QRazy Challenge!)

It’s almost a wrap for June, which means we’re just days away from Munzee’s official birthday month! But before we dive into that celebration, it’s time to honor both our June Players of the Month (POTM) and Gardens of the Month (GOTM) winners!

June POTM

June POTM was selected based off player nominations, as we asked you to send in your choices for outstanding clan coordinators. Many players jumped at the opportunity to share their picks for players who step up to the plate and apply their top organizational skills to coordinating Clan Wars. You can find a complete list of the June POTM winners at the end of the blog.  Congratulations to all of these players for being recognized by fellow players for your outstanding leadership skills!

July POTM Requirements

Our July POTM requirements will see Determined Deployers being awarded. Anyone who deploys at least *16 munzees throughout July will earn the following special Player of the Month badge that we have newly updated for July winners:

Per usual, the July POTM badge won’t be awarded until the end of the month, but it is a new badge for Birthday month only. So even if you’ve earned the previous POTM or POTW badges, this will be a new badge to earn! And speaking of earning badges for deploys…

QRazy 8’s Deploy Challenge

It’s time for a community challenge! We challenge you all to help us reach 8,888,888 deploys before the end of the month. From the last deploy count taken on June 25, we are currently at 8,768,683 deploys. If the goal is met by the end of July, anyone who deploys at least 8 munzees of any type during July will earn 1 Virtual, 1 Virtual Color Credit, 1 Urban Fit credit, 1 Physical Capture 2x Booster, as well as the limited edition QRazy 8’s badge!

*Note: Socials and personals are excluded from deploy count and qualification badge for both POTM and the deploy challenge. If the deploy challenge is met, all players who deployed will also earn the Crazy 8’s badge. (All prizes and badges will be awarded at the end of the month.) You people are QRazy, and we love it!

June GOTM

It’s time to recognize some outstanding Virtual Garden builders! While we have lots of exceptional garden nominations to choose from, we’ve been waiting to award our June winners for a little while now! All winning GOTM organizers, as well as all players who deployed in the winning gardens, will be awarded special badges for their contribution to growing the map in one of the funnest ways possible. The June Garden of the month title goes to the Fort Worth Longhorn Garden, organized by denali0407, and Grenaa City’s Coat of Arms, organized by RUJA and Heinerup! You can view the winning gardens below:

Fort Worth Longhorn Garden by denali0407 in Fort Worth, Texas

Some gardens are so beautiful they don’t even need nominations! Everyone at MHQ (and online!) were big fans of this beautiful garden, which was created for Geowoodstock 2019, held in Fort Worth. 

Grenaa City’s Coat of Arms by RUJA and Heinerup in Grenaa, Denmark

This very large garden contains more than 3,000 virtuals for a flawless execution by this Danish duo. The garden depicts the coat of arms of the Danish town of Grenaa based on a seal from the early 14th century that depicts a bridge over the Grenaa river. A church stands on either side of the bridge, symbolizing the local church and older chapter, while the stars and crescents represent traditional Christian symbols of the time. This garden is near a very large birthday event taking place July 6 which Matt will be attending.

Did you have the pleasure of deploying in either of this month’s winning gardens? All players who deployed in the respective winning gardens will receive the following special badges:

Do you know a garden that is worthy of the July GOTM title? We’re asking for players to submit already created gardens for the chance to win any of our upcoming Garden(s) of the Month! Just be sure to follow the rules!

GOTM Rules for GOTM nominations:

  1. Garden must feature non-licensed character designs.
  2. The garden must feature a Garden Places Pin.
  3. The garden must be built using a publicly available spreadsheet which we will ask to be locked after being 100% deployed.
  4. We’re asking for ongoing nominations and we will release the winners throughout the year.

Send your nomination for GOTM to iloveyou@munzee.com! Keep in mind that we take all former nominations into consideration for upcoming months. Just be sure your garden follows the nomination rules in order to be considered eligible!

If you need help deploying in a Virtual Garden, you can check out this step-by-step tutorial that will making deploying in a garden easy no matter how long you’ve been playing. To fill in the gardens, make sure to stock up on Virtuals and Color Credits from the Freeze Tag Online Store.

A big congratulations to all of our POTM and GOTM winners! Keep up that fantastic work, and start deploying July 1 to win prizes during the birthday month!

Munzee on!

May Players of the Month and June POTM Requirements!

Can you believe tomorrow is already the first day of June?! That means it will be Munzee’s birthday in no time! It’s also time to give a big Munzee shoutout to the many players who earned the May Player of the Month (POTM) badge for capturing 500 or more uniques of a specific myth. While some declared this feat to be quite challenging, we’re happy to have awarded hundreds of players for being absolute Myth Masters!

Congratulations to all who earned May POTM! And now it’s time to move on to next month’s requirements, which will call for nominations!

June POTM Requirements

Ready to give some recognition to hard-working players who go above and beyond? We will be awarding the POTM title to outstanding clan coordinators during the month of June! Do you know someone who is able to rally a team and coordinate the troops to victory? Many players put in hard work and careful consideration when organizing Clan Wars, and it’s about time they received their due recognition! These players could organize one clan or multiple clans so be sure to let us know the name of the player and clan(s).

If you know an outstanding clan organizer, email their player name to iloveyou@munzee.com by June 25 at 15:00 MHQ time to nominate them for the chance to earn June POTM! Remember that anyone who earned the Player of the Week badge previously IS able to earn the Player of the Month badge as well! The criteria for POTM changes each month, so stay tuned for the July POTM criteria if June isn’t your month to shine.

Congratulations to our May POTM winners!

Munzee on!

Munzee Mistakes: Introduction to ZeeOps and Clan Wars

After sharing a variety of tips that covered many aspects of gameplay, such as deploying and capping munzees, this week we’re exploring two areas of everyone’s favorite real world scavenger hunt that new players may be entirely unfamiliar with. We’re talking about ZeeOps and Clan Wars, which offer the chance for competitive gameplay with both yourself and others, respectively. Read on to discover more about Munzee competitive play and hear what tips and tricks fellow players have to share to help you enjoy all that Munzee has to offer!

Are you interested in competitive gameplay with yourself? ZeeOps might be the answer for you! Feel like a secret agent by taking on monthly Missions that range in difficulty levels and require a variety of Munzee skills to conquer. Complete your Missions within the required amount of time to unlock treasures! Every month new Operations will be released, including confidential information related to each month’s Mission. In order to start ZeeOps, you’ll need to earn some ZeeCred, which you can pick up in the Freeze Tag Online Store. You will be able to earn more credits through completing operations.

Is competitive gameplay with others more your speed? Join a clan and compete in monthly Clan Wars with members of your team! Clans are formed with ten players, with the opportunity to use the Clan Randomizer button to find a spot in a clan from 00:01 MHQ time on the first of each month through 23:59 MHQ time on the second of each month if you need help joining. Clan Wars criteria will be released at the end of each month for the upcoming month, with all Clan Battles starting on the third and lasting for the duration of the month. The monthly requirements will vary, but they largely include both individual and group components needed to be achieved in order to move up between the five levels. That means a clan is often only as strong as its weakest link, though many clans only aspire to reach a certain level each month.

Below are 32 tips offered by fellow players. Munzee may provide some fierce competition, but that doesn’t mean that plenty of players aren’t here to help every step of the way!

Clan Wars & ZeeOps Tips and Tricks

Tip #1: Take advantage of both Clan Wars and ZeeOps to earn credits and specials. Then place the munzees you earn near your home or work to increase your odds of attracting Bouncers. (KLC)

Tip #2: If you are a newbie to Munzee, don’t cap everything that is around you when you first start playing. You will need some convenient caps to meet the requirements for Clan Wars and for ZeeOps. (Bossmanlee)

Tip #3: Start “Clan Warring” and “ZeeOpsing” as soon as possible. It’s easier to fill requirements before you’ve capped everything in your city. Plus you’ll get credits to make your area more appealing to other players. (Aukush)

Tip #4: For ZeeOps, start with the Cadet level. It is fun and easy and a great way to introduce you to Ops and how it works. Plus you get enough ZeeCreds from completing the operation to try a Basic Level! (5Star)

Tip #5: If you’re doing a level 2+ ZeeOp and one of the available missions of the month is to have 500 or 1,000 cap-on points, schedule that on a Saturday or Sunday. That’s when most people are capping munzees (either at events or on their own). (pikespice)

Tip #6: Set a reminder for ZeeOps so you don’t forget. (qdog)

Tip #7: I love ZeeOps, because you can do some little personal challenges each day and get credits for them! I add the daily requirements to my reminders on my calendar so I don’t forget. (jellybean88)

Tip#8: Always wear sunglasses while doing ZeeOps… this makes you feel like a secret agent. 😎 (Jerzee)

Tip #9: Cluster your deploys — have pockets of jewels, zodiacs, elementals, etc. This will help attract players doing ZeeOps! (Leese Philip)

Tip #10: If you wonder how to try a longer operation or use the Mission Mulligan in the very beginning, you can win ZeeCreds on Prize Wheels, and you get some each month as a gift for being Premium Member. (xwusel)

Tip #11: If you are able, attend events to meet some friendly faces and have a chance to learn more about the game. Bonus tip: participate in some basic ZeeOps to earn a fun variety of new munzees to deploy. (beckiweber)

Tip #12: Remember that there is the Mulligan whereby you are allowed to fix one day’s failed operation at the cost of 25 Zeecred. But this doesn’t apply for the last day of the mission! (stebu)

Tip #13: You can win ZeeCreds by capping Prize Wheel Munzees. (BrianMoos)

Tip #14: Remember that Clan Wars don’t start until the 3rd day of the month. If you are doing a ZeeOp and are in a clan, you can consider not starting your ZeeOp before the 3rd. There is no reason for all the ZeeOps hard work to go to waste and not do double duty and count for the clan as well. (3Blanchards)

Tip #15: Consider joining a clan. It makes you part of a team with a common goal, and it teaches discipline when capping so you don’t just go around capping everything. (fsafranek)

Tip #16: Try to join a clan! Clan members are a mine of information and encouragement. Joining a clan also helps you realize that many other quite normal people enjoy scanning lampposts! (Thegenie18)

Tip #17: Join a low level clan to start. (TheFoods)

Tip #18: Join a clan and have a clan group chat page! It really helps all clan members with things like deploying virtuals near clan mates. It is great to have help with all things Munzee and have a general Munzee chat with fellow players. (lolbot)

Tip #19: Join the Munzee team sport that is Clan Wars. Once you understand the requirements, don’t cap everything in a 10 mile radius in your first week! (Section42)

Tip #20: In Clan Wars, if CapOn points are counted that month, consider focusing on capping the munzee’s deployed by your teammates to help their points increase as well. This will help the overall points of the clan. If you live in an area with few munzees, encourage your team to build the map locally so all will have points to obtain. This will also attract new and traveling players. (FindersGirl)

Tip #21: Not all clans aspire to reach Level 5, but different clans have different goals. Be ready to do 1/10 of the requirements before committing to a certain level in a clan, unless you agreed otherwise. (halizwein)

Tip #22: Choose a level in Clan Wars that you are comfortable playing to keep it fun. (YMHgra)

Tip #23: For Clan Wars, pick what level you can complete 10% of clan goals and what level you can complete just the personal requirements, and let potential clans know both levels you feel comfortable with. Some clans may not care if you can do 10%; others may require it. (technical13)

Tip #24: You can find a clan suitable for your level in the Facebook group “Munzee Clan Transfer Market.” (Justinas Rumcikas) 

Tip #25: At the end of the day, remember that you are playing a game. Yes, people can get competitive, and it’s fun to win, but it’s more important to enjoy yourself and celebrate small victories when you’re engaging in Clan Wars or ZeeOps! (violetblonde)

Tip #26: Get above your individual requirements to help your clan mates if you can! Remember you are playing with a team. (Faby)

Tip #27: If you run a clan, create a Facebook page for easy communication. If you join a clan with a Facebook page, make sure you join the page as well to keep up with clan requirements. (Orky99)

Tip #28: Be social on Facebook and with your clan mates. Your fellow players will be glad to help you meet your goals. (Kermit450)

Tip #29: Communication is key. Talk to your clan mates! (Sportytaxi)

Tip #30: Once you have chosen your Clan Wars Level, communication is the key! A number of clans have set up a private Facebook group to facilitate good clan communication. (EagleDadandXenia)

Tip #31: For Clan Wars, having clan mates in different areas can help with clan POB, TOB, and MOB requirements. (Belboz)

Tip #32: Play the game the way you like it. Whether you do Clan Wars or ZeeOps, deploy only physicals or only virtuals, that is up to you. Start the game the way you like it most, and if you still enjoy it after a month or so, branch out deeper into the game. It can be overwhelming if you try to learn it all at once. (Reart)

Munzee Mistakes: 10 Tips and Tricks for New Players

Welcome to Munzee! Munzee is a complex game, and to make it easier for both new and old players, we have been sharing tips every week on social media with the help of player suggestions. Whether this is your first day or fourth year playing, it’s always helpful to connect with other players in order to hone your hunting skills. 

If you’re in need of some helpful hints, we have compiled together our social media tips that we have been sharing weekly. Consider these tips while playing to avoid the most common Munzee mistakes! If you follow us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, these tips might look familiar. 

Tip #1: Use your filters! Make it easier to find specific munzee types by turning different filters off and on! Don’t forget that you can unlock even more filters with a Premium Membership.

Tip #2: Read the notes on munzees. Look under “details” to discover helpful hints that offer tips on where to look. When deploying a munzee at a location that is not obvious, be sure to add descriptive notes. They are always appreciated by players!

Tip #3: When deploying physical munzees, scan the munzee sticker in your hand first, then stick it. This will avoid any issues with attempting to deploy too close to another munzee, so you won’t have to peel off a sticker and relocate it! Once you’ve added the name and description to your deploy, you can re-scan the sticker to verify that it can be capped easily. (Tip courtesy of WiseOldWizard.)

Tip #4: When you first start playing Munzee, try to get the hard to earn badges first, such as the Pi Badges which require an exact number of points capped in a day. Once you start Deploying and earning CapOn points, some badges can be extremely tricky to get. (Tip courtesy of valmie.)

Tip #5: Buying a Premium Membership is worth the extra cost, as you are able to see more of the map area and be more selective with filters if you are in a munzee dense area and only looking for certain types to cap. It also helps because you can choose to not see munzees you’ve already capped or deployed. (Tip courtesy of bumpy.)

Tip #6: Leave some of your neighborhood blank – you never know what new types of munzees MHQ has up their sleeve. You don‘t want to not be able to deploy at least one nearby to keep your neighborhood interesting! (Tip courtesy of granitente.)

Tip #7: For a unique and adventurous Munzee experience, use tree tags to grow the game into the wild. When created with quality materials and deployed correctly, tree tags will likely last longer than stickers on light poles and signs. And you get to hike and enjoy nature while deploying and capping! (Tip courtesy of semipaw.)

Tip #8: Always keep two or three stickers between your phone and the phone case for those emergency replacements. (And to play it extra safe, don’t leave home without a portable phone charger!) (Tip courtesy of wazong.)

Tip #9: Remember that just because you CAN place a physical Munzee somewhere doesn’t mean you should. Consider dangers like traffic and terrain when placing that strategic sticker. Munzees placed in private courtyards and compounds not open to the public will see little action. Finally, remember the forbidden places in the Player Code of Conduct! (Tip courtesy of The8re)

Tip #10: Don’t cap everything at once! If you are doing Clan Wars, you may need to save certain caps in your town for future months. It can be overwhelming, but go slow and steady. Leaving munzees uncapped will also help with maintaining streaks during dry periods. (Tip courtesy of Sprinkman)

Bonus Tip: There are three kinds of bouncers: POBs (Player Owned Bouncers), MOBs (Munzee Owner Bouncers), and TOBs (Team Owned Bouncers.) The distinction is very important for Clan Wars. Attached are a sampling of some MOBs, TOBs, and POBs. You can also read a full listing of all MOBs, POBs, and TOBs here! (Tip courtney of aturner0010)

Do you have any tips to share? E-mail us at iloveyou@munzee.com! You can also check out our past blogs about 25 master tips, 20 capping tips, 20 deploy tips, and 10 tips for new players. For more tips, be sure to check the blog daily for updates! 

A big thanks to all who shared tips, and if you’re a new player, welcome to the Munzee family! As you can see, this is an interactive community in which players help each other master the art of Munzee. We’ve also been updating the Munzee Help Manual, which will feature all of these tips and tricks as well as a comprehensive breakdown of many aspects of gameplay.

Munzee on!

Munzee Mistakes: 25 General Tips and Helpful Hints

The Munzee community has banded together to bring us 20 capping tips, 20 deploy tips, and last week’s 10 tips for new players. To continue our journey of making Munzee more accessible for our many new players, this week we’ve compiled a comprehensive list of general tips and tricks sent in by some of Munzee’s dedicated players!

Are you a brand new player? Are you a dedicated player browsing the list to learn some new wisdom? (Are you an absolute expert seeing if your tip is featured? 😉) No matter your level of gameplay, there is always something new you can learn since we’re always mixing things up to introduce new adventures, excitement, and specials to everyone’s favorite real world scavenger hunt!

Here is some general gameplay advice offered by fellow players:

Tip #1: Help fellow players complete Virtual Gardens and Trail Munzees. It helps everyone! (Elisa Angel Reynozo) #GrowTheMap

Tip #2: Always check your filters to make sure you’re not missing anything. (dap217)

Tip #3: Definitely learn how to use the filters to get the best experience. You will need to become a Premium Member to get the better filter range. (mikedee)

Tip #4: Become a Premium Member. The ability to use filters is incredibly helpful. In an instant you can filter out and see hotels/resorts that have rooms. You can filter and see JUST where Mythological Munzees are located near you. Being a Premium Member allows you to do this! (MRSG9064)

Tip #5: When you become a Premium Member, spend some time looking at Statzee. (This is the home of munzee statistics!) There is an amazing amount you can learn by looking at this information closely. (Bungle)

Tip #6: Sign up for monthly MunzPak subscriptions! I love getting my Physical Pak every month, as it gets me out and about in my area! Points makes badges! (Jemma Jones-Hayes)

Tip #7: Go to an event and make lots of new friends! (See the Munzee Events Calendar HERE!) They will be willing to help you with all the questions you have. Remember, no question is too daft (silly) to ask! (Anwsmum)

Tip #8: Go to an Event in the neighbourhood. You are able to meet more experienced players who can give you all kinds of tips. You might even be able to go and Munzee with them to see how they approach things. (Feikjen)

Tip #9: Get in a WhatsApp, Facebook, or online community to share Munzee stuff and just chat amongst each other. Communicating with fellow players is a great way to keep up to date with Munzee and get to know other players. (Human01d)

Tip #10: Watch Facebook, Twitter, and Munzee Blog posts for Munzee Announcements. New Munzee types may mean you need to check your Physical or Virtual FILTERS to see everything. (KernKlan)

Tip #11: If you’re unsure of what a sticker is coded as, test scan it, and then write on the back of the sticker so you don’t forget! (Liam Kearns)

Tip #12: When you’ve completed the new player tutorial, go back and scan that referral code that led you to the game! (Penfold49)

Tip #13: When you are starting out with a fresh area, deploy a “Myth Farm”, a block of Shamrock munzees, a block of Water Mystery munzees, a block of Ice Mystery munzees. That way, you will always have several Myth munzees showing up every day. (MythBait)

Tip #14: When deploying, mix it up a little. A field of Greenies will be more likely to attract players if you add some specials in there. A few jewels, weapons, Destination munzees, and scattering types (Ice Mystery, Fire Mystery, etc.) can help draw a player in. (Jellybean88)

Tip #15: It will take a while and effort, but having ZeeQRew makes capping better, and you won’t miss specials. (GeoTracker7)

Tip #16: If you buy a Personal Munzee, make sure you scan it first to deploy it before letting others scan it! Otherwise, they own it. (Linda Shoemaker)

Tip #17: For deploy requirements, don’t forget that if you cap a Destination munzee (Hotel/Motel/Virtual Resort/Timeshare) that has a vacancy, the room you get counts as a deploy. (Bennycams)

Tip #18: Hold down the “my location button” and it will follow as you walk/drive. (Connor Brown)

Tip #19: For extra fun when deploying physicals, have three Munzee players deploying every 50 feet to make a great Munzee physical power trail! (earthangel)

Tip #20: In cities or areas where walking can be difficult, think about places where a future capper can park. It’s easier to cap when you can park legally and only have a short walk. (Kpr1000)

Tip #21: Think of the long haul. Build your home map to bring the CapOns to you— they will come if you build it well enough! (FrankBroughton)

Tip #22: Along with setting filters, research the area before trips so you don’t get sidetracked and miss the munzees you traveled for by capping everything in sight. (rufnredy)

Tip #23: Name your Virtual Resorts before you ever deploy them. (denali0407)

Munzee Mistakes: 10 Things I Wish I Knew When I Was New

For the last few weeks, we have been sharing Munzee Tips to help ease new player transitions into everyone’s favorite real world scavenger hunt. After sharing 20 tips for both deploying and capping munzees, this week we’re keeping things simple with a short and sweet list of advice that long-time Munzee players wish to offer to the newbies.

Feel free to share these posts with new referrals (and don’t forget to share your referral code)! If you are new to the game and checking out our blog for the first time, welcome to Munzee! Things may seem confusing at first, but there are always plenty of players who are ready to help!

Here is the advice that current players have to offer:

1. The Facebook page Munzee Water Cooler* is a very helpful resource where you won’t be chastised for being a newbie asking questions. It’s filled with very helpful individuals for the most part. You will learn a lot by joining! (Mygalstar)

2. As a new player, build up the area where you live. You can then easily go out quickly to capture the many Bouncers that will land on your deploys. A good mix includes many greenies, a set or two of Elemental Mysteries, and a few Shamrocks. You can then fill in gaps with virtuals, starting with green, then red and black. Nothing beats just walking out of your house and capping some high point Munzees. (Jim Roik)

3. Try to earn the badges that are harder to earn, such as the Repeater and the Pi-badges, in the early days of the game. Very particular badges that include exact numbers will be harder to achieve once you are a regular player. (Norbee97)

4. As soon as possible, start deploying AND capturing at least one Munzee every day. This will let you get the streak badges sooner and get you into the game much more quickly. (malof)

5. Patience is an important tip! As a new player, it takes time to grow your local area, and it takes time to buy/earn munzees to deploy. It’s okay to get a little jealous of the older players and their many CapOns, but don’t worry, it will come in time. And there is a LOT to learn, so be patient with yourself! (Fizzlewizzle)

6. Get online and read about Munzee! The blog will tell you about badges, points, types of munzees, Specials, filters, etc. This helps you understand the game a little quicker. (Read about the different types HERE!) Also wherever you go, open the map and you will cap. (Sandmari)

7. Don’t cap everything in your local area. You never know when you need a quick cap or a certain type to keep a streak alive! This will also be beneficial if you choose to engage in Clan Wars or ZeeOps. (Cceasar)

8. Try to get into a Munzee community. This will help and support you in the game, as well as occasionally understanding the written word from MHQ. For me, the start of socializing within the game was attending an event and starting to talk to the lovely Munzee people. Today I think of them as my (Munzee) friends! (Jorgensen4220)

9. When attending events (or even just capping!), take along a portable battery charger or an iPad. Battery life is important when in a large area or park. (This tip may seem simple, but nothing cuts quite like a dead phone during a capping streak!) (NanaKern)

10. Become a Premium Member. The ability to use filters is incredibly helpful. In an instant you can filter out and see hotel/resorts that have rooms. You can filter and see JUST where myths are located near you. Being a Premium Member allows you to do this! (MRSG9064)

Don’t forget to follow us on  Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to stay up to date with the latest tips and gameplay updates. We’re also beginning to dust off the Munzee Help Manual, where you can find these Tips and Tricks. To share your Munzee Tip, connect with us on social media or e-mail iloveyou@munzee.com. As always, a big thank you to all players who shared their tips!

Munzee on!

Munzee Mistakes: 20 Capping Tips for New Players

Last week we shared 20 deploy tips brought to you by fellow Munzee players. This week we’re happy to share 20 capping tips also shared by player suggestions. Have any helpful tips that you’d like to share with new players? E-mail us at iloveyou@munzee.com to share your ideas! And be sure to share these blogs with new players, as well as have them scan your referral code.

This article’s theme is capping tips! “Capture,” “Cap,” or “Capping” are all terms we use for earning points from a munzee, which is either done by scanning a QR code on a Physical Munzee or by standing within the appropriate circumference to capture a Virtual Munzee. Remember you can purchase munzees for other players to capture, which will allow you to earn “CapOn” points, in the Freeze Tag Online Store!

Here is what fellow players had to say about capping mistakes, tips, and tricks:

Tip #1: Always read the details of the munzee, including the about screen, history, and even the photos screen. These areas will usually have helpful information about the specific munzee that you’re trying to capture. (dgas71)

Tip #2: Take a black pen with you. It might help if you colour in the large black squares in the QR code if you can’t scan an old munzee! (Appeltje32)

Tip #3: Create a “Munzee bag” with wipes (munzees stick better in clean spots), extra munzees to deploy, water, a charging device, selfie stick, etc. You can carry this bag around with you while capping to always have the essential on hand. (thefoods)

Tip #4: For those living in areas that get a lot of snow, get a selfie stick. Selfie sticks will help you reach those munzees that are four feet away without having to climb through snow banks. It also helps you reach munzees deployed a little to high to reach. (SpiritTree)

Tip #5: In the winter months, invest in either electronic friendly gloves or a cheep pack of styluses to keep you from having to take your gloves off while capping. (Geodude)

Tip #6: Be prepared with water, sunscreen, generics, and referral cards before you set off to cap! (Jellybean88)

Tip #7: When Munzeeing, always remember to “slip, slop, slap” (wear plenty of sunblock) when playing during the daylight hours. You’ll regret it if you don’t and you end up sunburnt. (prmarks1391)

Tip #8: When walking and capping, consider wearing a safety vest. Not only do you look safe, but it will also make it appear as though you belong where you are. This will help it look less suspicious when you are capping random objects. (godspeed1074)

Tip #9: Carry alcohol prep pads with you while capping. They work great to get recently painted-over munzees clean so you can cap them. (TK7464)

Tip #10: If your GPS doesn’t show the position where you are and it isn’t refreshing, start another GPS app such as GPS Status. If that still doesn’t help, kill the app and start again. ( GeoLog81)

Tip #11: Invest in a Premium Membership! It really helps with captures. (newbee)

Tip #12: When capping, deploy a munzee near your car so that you can find it when you are done. Sometimes your munzee nose can lead you further and further away from where you started. (Godspeed1074)

Tip #13: Always carry a backup battery or charger, and make sure your phone is fully charged. (snakelips)

Tip #14: When you intentionally drive to an area to spend time capping Munzees, park near a munzee if possible, but don’t cap it until you are ready to leave. Use that pin to keep track of where you parked your vehicle (especially if you are doing a clean sweep of munzees). Knowing how far you’ve wandered from the munzee you parked near will allow you to estimate how long it will take to get back to your car! (Anitaz)

Tip #15: If you can’t reach a munzee, use the zoom (pinch out) to magnify the image a bit. (thefoods)

Tip #16: Hold down on the globe to realign the map so north is up! (danielle41101)

Tip #17: Use the satellite view on the map! It can give hints as to what light pole, sign, fence post. etc. the munzee is deployed at. This is very helpful if there are only vague hints provided. (Buckeyecacher111)

Tip #18: If you don’t see the munzee right at the listed coordinates, check some other locations nearby. Perhaps the hint is incorrect; i.e. the munzee is really on a green box, but the hint said “LP” for lamp post instead. There may be several of the hint all clustered together, so be sure to check them all. (5Star)

Tip #19: Remember to refresh the map if you scan any Elemental munzees. This is not the end of the fun! A new bonuses munzee has just appeared in your area! (Lumen)

Tip #20: Plan road trips so you can munzees along the highway. This makes the trip go a lot faster! However, don’t drive and cap! (Bowlr)

For more Munzee Tips, follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram and keep a lookout on the updates we’re doing on the Munzee Help Manual. A big thanks goes out to all players who shared their tips! Munzee may be complex, but there are always players ready to help decipher everyone’s favorite real world scavenger hunt.

Munzee on!
