Featured Munzee Tookit: Helga Marten (Mieze)

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 Helga Marten (Mieze).

Who are you? 
I’m Helga Marten from Germany (near Stuttgart), and my username is Mieze.

What’s in your toolkit? 
The first picture is my rucksack. It holds all of my things:

 

Next is a box which holds all of my Munzees, sorted by type.

I also carry:

  • a pair of scissors so I can cut the munzees
  • a glove with metal parts to use my phone when it is very cold
  • a self-made extension (ruler) with a rubber band to hold my phone so as to get an “extended arm” — this was invented by Engel19; we are on the road with him quite often
  • my Personal Munzee

I also keep snacks and water with me for longer days.

Finally, I keep a powerbank with me.


If you have a Munzee Toolkit that you’d like to show off, you can email us at iloveyou@munzee.com with the subject “Munzee Toolkit”. Make sure to include:

  • Your username and where you are from.
  • A few high quality photos.
  • A list of what each item is and how you use it.
  • What made you decide to use those items.
  • Any other relevant details.

We want to see your creativity and learn how you play. Show us what you’ve got!

Munzee on!

Tea Parties Kick Off Next Weekend!

Hello from London! It’s nearly time for tea!

The calendar is looking wonderful with more events being added by the day and we are getting ready to kick the Tea Parties off next weekend. There is still time to host an event by submitting one here: https://calendar.munzee.com/submit. Trish’s diary is very full so any art requests would have to be very simple at this stage or we won’t be able to get them done in time I’m afraid.

Most events are including the Tea Pot add on, this is $20 and awards a present to each attendee as they scan the relevant munzee (usually the event badge). Hosts please email me at louise@munzee.com if you would like to add this to your event but haven’t yet done so.

We are all looking forward to seeing your fun hats too so please feel free to come to the events in your finery! This Mad Hat badge is up for grabs for the winner at each one and the hosts will receive it too! Hosts just need to email me a picture of the winner and their Munzee username.

We are still working on new offerings available to events and should be in a position to reveal them over the next couple of weeks and even showcase one of them at an event at the end of April, details to follow….

Hosts and attendees alike should be excited to hear I have a new line of badges for you. They will start on 1st April and are for attending events, yes they are retroactive too! I brainstormed with local players whilst Down Under on these and will be interested to see how many you all have!

Finally, on a personal note, I wanted to say thank you to those that have emailed and messaged me about the sad and scary events in London yesterday. Us Londoners are brave and strong, we will drink tea and carry on!

Munzee on and stay safe everyone!

Join Rob and Garfield in Munzee, IN!

Munzee is turning 6 this year! To celebrate we are taking over Muncie, Indiana and turning 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.

We’re pleased to announce that special Garfield icons will be exclusively available in Muncie, Fairmount (the hometown of Garfield creator and cartoonist Jim Davis) and other areas of Grant County.

Some of these munzees will mark the locations of Garfield statues in the area. Located in Marion, Indiana and surrounding Grant County cities, the fiberglass statues each measure approximately five feet in height and depict Jim Davis’s Garfield in hilarious costumes or situations. Learn more about the official Grant County Garfield Trail HERE

A Munzee (and possibly Eventzee) trail will be placed to coincide with this and launched during the birthday weekend!

Keep a lookout for more details about the weekend of events on the Calendar in the near future, but start planning your trip to the Midwest now!

We’ll also have more information regarding all of the 6th Birthday worldwide festivities soon, but you can be sure that it will be a BAM! of a time, even if it is a bit DRAWN out!

Special thanks to PAWS Inc. for permission to use the likeness of Garfield in the Munzee game.

St. Patrick’s Day Weekend Wrap-Up

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!

  • Friday:
    • 287,784 Captures (Ranked #50 Overall)
    • 16,381 Deploys (Ranked #16 Overall)
  • Saturday:
    • 509,530 Captures (Ranked #7 Overall)
    • 21,200 Deploys (Ranked #6 Overall)
  • Sunday:
    • 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!

The Extras

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!

Munzee on!

St. Patrick’s Day Weekend UPDATE

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:

  • Greenies
  • Shamrocks
  • Emeralds
  • Green Virtuals
  • Green Mystery Virtuals
  • Green MVMs
  • Dark Green MVMs

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!

What’s in your Munzee Toolkit?

We have 3 players in our house.

First, we have our organizers (small tackleboxes) for our munzees. We have our name on the outside of each box and then G (greenies) or S (special) on each compartment,

Next, we have what is actually a nail care kit that comes in handy for repairing munzees. I’ve actually saved a few that were painted over with this.

Then, we have out flashlight for finding the non-glow-in-the-dark munzees at night.

And finally, we have out bag. It fits all of our organizers, flashlight, and nail kit. It has a net pocket on the side that we put the the sticker backs in. It also has a pocket for my keys so I don’t have to keep track of them while out capping and deploying.


If you have a Munzee Toolkit that you’d like to show off, you can email us at iloveyou@munzee.com with the subject “Munzee Toolkit”. Make sure to include:

  • Your username and where you are from.
