6th Birthday Events UPDATE

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!

Introducing Elemental Munzee Badges!

We’re excited to announce the release of a new line of badges for capturing Elemental Munzees! Do you think you can harness the energy of the world’s elements?

You can earn these badges by capturing Fire, Ice and Earth Munzees… and maybe something else soon.

The first of three badges is for beginners of the Elemental Arts and you can earn it by capturing 100 Elementals of any kind. All of the Elemental Munzee badges are retroactive, but they will remain hidden until you unlock the requirements for the next badge. The badges will go live at 00:01 MHQ on Thursday June 15th.

You can help out your fellow players with their caps and purchase an Elemental Munzee Pak HERE

Good luck on your journey to master the elements! Munzee on!

Player of the Week: Brian Glaski (cachewhisperer)

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, Brian Glaski (cachewhisperer).

Who are you?
Brian G. aka cachewhisperer

Where in the world do you live?
Currently Orlando, FL

How long have you played Munzee?
I have been a member since 2012

How did you find Munzee?
I was on a road trip with War1man and Rosieree to WV for a Hatfield and McCoy Tour hosted by some great friends. Every now and then along the way, Warren would find a munzee nearby and run back to the car to grab his phone. That night, at dinner in a local restaurant, there was a QR code on a ketchup bottle. Making a joke to YankaBucs about scanning the ketchup munzee, it turned out to be worth 1 point. I was shocked and downloaded the app. That ketchup bottle was my second munzee scanned after a regular virtual.

What do you most enjoy about Munzee?
I enjoy the walking aspect of the game. I’m very competitive with points, but I will never let the original intention of the game to get people out walking for exercise to escape me.

What is on your wish list?
One day, I would like to get over to Europe and see where their Munzee trails bring me. Or maybe even a clan war month with no virtual captures/CapOns. Just physicals. I like a challenge.

Tell us about yourself!
I am a paramedic working my way up with training and experience and eventually have a goal of becoming a firefighter/paramedic in NH.

Other hobbies include:
From time to time I do enjoy taking out the golf clubs and smacking a few around. My game has improved quite a bit lately, so if MHQ is up for a challenge… Haha.

Any last words?
Isn’t this what they ask you before pulling the switch on the electric chair? I’d like to say thanks to the MHQ staff for all that they do. It’s not an easy job pleasing everyone, but there are many that appreciate what you do.

Player of the Week: Timo Sivonen (Sivontim)

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, Timo Sivonen (Sivontim).

Who are you?
My name is Timo Sivonen, and my username is Sivontim.

Where in the world do you live?
I live in Helsinki, Finland.

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

How did you find Munzee?
I was playing another GPS game, looking for hidden Tupperware and found my first Munzee code. I didn’t have a suitable device to scan it. Later, I got a new tablet and decided to test it. I drove 70 km from our cabin to the nearest code and captured my first munzee. I purchases a Premium Membership that same day.

Around my home there were only a few greenies, and for more codes, I needed to drive around the city to capture single codes. The idea of trails came later. Now, there is a huge “candy shop” for the beginners, and I’m still driving around capturing all of the mythologicals.

What do you most enjoy about Munzee?
I like getting out ans seeing places that I would not have found unless there was a munzee there. I have also met many new friends who play the game.

I enjoy the Clan Wars and all kinds of charity campaigns with the specials on the Munzee map.

I like the way the game is constantly changing and growing up.

What is on your wish list?
I would like to get an Emerald Garden in Helsinki.

I would also like the option of upgrading old Mystery Virtuals for a small fee so that those could then be capped again by anyone who capped it previously.

For the events, I would like a new kind of Personal Munzee that players could capture again at every event.

Tell us about yourself!
I’m 46 years old and working as a project manager in the ICT company. If I’m not munzeeing, I’m photographing or editing my pics. I love to “shoot” all kinds of birds and other animals in the wild and at the local zoo.

Other hobbies include:
My hobbies along with Munzee are photography and genealogy.

Any last words?
I would like to thank those whom nominated me. And thank you, MHQ, for keeping the game changing and making it fun. Munzee on!
