I’m delighted to let you all know that a Munzee event hosted by rubik80 and spysmurf in Australia last week hit over 300 attendees! All attendees are being awarded this brand new badge:
There is also a new host badge for hosts hitting over 300 attendees.
Don’t forget there are also host badges for every 5 times you host. My current champion on that is Primdahl who has hosted over 50 times!
Well what a wonderful few weeks the Go Green Events were! Thank you all for your support of them, there were 81 events around the world and we saw lots of wonderful green initiatives and outfits. Check out the gallery of all the Go Green Winners here.
I am currently working on the theme and packages for the birthday events for you all to help us celebrate our 7th Birthday this summer! The packages will be available for the whole of July so feel free to start submitting your events on the calendar.
Details of the packages will be available in due course, along with some other really exciting news!
There are also some new badges coming for those of you who’ve already hit the 100 events attended badge and don’t think that’s high enough!
Stay tuned and Munzee On!
Just in time for this month’s Clan Wars, we’re excited to announce new badges for Capturing Recycle Munzees!
This is an extension of the current Recycle line, which includes badges for capturing 1, 50, and 100 Recycle Icons. We are adding badges for capturing 500, 1,000, 2,500, and 5,000 Recycle Icons, which will be available starting at 00:01 MHQ time on April 3rd.
These badges ARE retroactive, but will be hidden until you earn them.
Recycling Basket- Capture 500 Recycle Icon Munzees.
Recycling Bin- Capture 1000 Recycle Icon Munzees.
Recycling Can- Capture 2500 Recycle Icon Munzees.
Recycling Dumpster- Capture 5000 Recycle Icon Munzees.
As a quick reminder, Recycle Icons appear on certain munzees that haven’t been capped in 365 days. This is a “one and done” special icon. Once the icon is capped, the Munzee returns to its normal icon. In other words this is a race for you to be first in your area to get to the icon. You CAN capture this icon on munzees that you have capped before. You CANNOT capture this icon on your own munzees. The affected munzees are:
- All Physical Jewels
- All Physical Clan Weapons
- Physical Mysteries
- Premium Munzees
Recycle Icons will be on the map from 00:01 MHQ Time on Tuesday, April 3rd through 23:59 MHQ time on Monday, April 30th.
Good luck, grow the map and go green!
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!
There was a lot going on this weekend with Flat Robs on the map, Leprechauns bouncing at an accelerated rate, and 3x points on some of our favorite green munzees. We love seeing gameplay statistics, so we decided run the numbers on this past weekend. All we can say is “wow”.
Total Capture and Deploys
As we mentioned in our social posts earlier today, Saturday was in the Top 10 Overall days of both captures and deploys. That’s not all, though. Friday, Saturday, and Sunday also all ranked in the Top 50 Overall days of captures and the Top 20 Overall days of deploys!
- 287,784 Captures (Ranked #50 Overall)
- 16,381 Deploys (Ranked #16 Overall)
- 509,530 Captures (Ranked #7 Overall)
- 21,200 Deploys (Ranked #6 Overall)
- 388,712 Captures (Ranked #20 Overall)
- 19,080 Deploys (Ranked #11 Overall)
3x Point Munzee Captures
Seven munzee types were included in the 3x Point Weekend: Greenies, Dark Green MVMs, Light Green MVMs, Green Mystery Virtual Munzees, Green Virtual Munzees, Shamrock Munzees, and Emerald Munzees. During the weekend, there were 407,870 captures of these types including 92,787 on Friday, 165,356 on Saturday, and 149,727 on Sunday!
We also had some extra badges for capturing Leprechauns and Greenies this weekend. You stepped up to the challenge, and 716 players earned at least the first of the three badges! There were 3,349 Leprechaun captures and 201,198 greenie captures over the weekend!
We hope you all had a great weekend, and we can’t wait for you to see what else we have coming up soon!
A reminder that starting Friday March 17th at 00:01 MHQ Munzee is going GREEN with a 3x Point Weekend! Greenies, Shamrocks and Emerald munzees will all be worth 3 times as many points for captures, deploys or cap-ons.
Wait, what’s that? Some of our other munzees are a bit GREEN with envy…
We’re pleased to announce Green Virtuals, Green Mystery Virtuals, and Green and Dark Green MVMs will also be worth triple points!
So to recap:
From Friday, March 17th at 00:01 MHQ time until Sunday, March 19th at 23:59 MHQ time, we’ll be having a 3x Point Weekend for our favorite green munzees, including:
- Green Virtuals
- Green Mystery Virtuals
- Green MVMs
- Dark Green MVMs
Green Mystery Virtual
Dark Green MVM
This will effect all points — Deploys, Captures, and CapOns.
Don’t forget that in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day, Leprechauns will also be bouncing faster than normal. During this time frame, Leprechauns will bounce every 6 hours (or when capped) instead of every 12 hours.
Be on the lookout for three secret Luck Of The Irish badges that can only be earned this weekend too. These are for capping Greenies and Leprechauns, but you’ll have to figure out just how many! Here’s a hint of where to start though…
Free Shamrocks!– Capture 100 greenies and 1 Leprechaun.
Munzee on! #E1EW and Happy #StPatricksDay!
You’ve all played with Fire and been frozen by Ice, but now it’s time to clean up with the new Earth Mystery Munzee!
This new physical Munzee type is much like its elemental counterparts, but don’t expect it to scatter every time you cap an Earth Mystery! While Fire left you burned and Ice frozen solid, the Earth Munzee is all about Going Green. When you capture an Earth Munzee all munzees that haven’t been capped in over a year will turn into a Recycle Munzee for two hours- but only for you to see.
Name: Earth Mystery Munzee
Cap/CapOn: Split of 60 with min of 5.
Earth Mystery Munzees are available NOW in the Munzee Online Store. They are physical stickers sold in blocks of 20 for $40 USD. There is currently a limit of 100 per person, per month.
We’re also excited to announce the Elemental Munzee Pak which will include 10 Fire, Ice and Earth Mystery Munzees for $40. You can also find these in the Munzee Online Store.
Speaking of the Fire and Ice Mystery Munzees, the Yetis and Dragons heard your cries and thought to bring you a nice surprise. Fire and Ice Mysteries now have an increased chance of attracting Dragons and Yetis, respectively!
Be on the lookout for Earth shattering badges to be released soon!
Have fun, and #MunzEE on! #E1EW
