Coinz Of The Month, Evolution Coin, Re-released Coinz and Flat Robs!

April isn’t over yet- Coinz are on sale NOW!

We apologize for the delay on this month’s Coinz of The Month set, our move to the new office slowed down the shipping process a bit. This month’s coinz feature The Sillyman from our 2015 April Fool’s special as well a cool Earth Day planted tree design. Remember that COTM are $15 for a set of two coinz and are limited to one per player. If you missed out on last month’s COTM we still have a few sets available as well! You can buy both sets HERE. 

 

We’re also excited to release a new Evolution Munzee coin which is perfect for tracking your Evo captures. The Evolution Munzee Coin is for sale for $10 and you can buy one HERE.

The coinz keep on coming! We’re pleased to re-release our first set of Munzee Coinz: The Longsword, Greenie and Flat Rob! These were released in very limited quantity last year so we’re happy to restock for those that missed out. The Longsword, Greenie and Flat Rob coins are $10 a piece and you can buy those HERE.

Speaking of our favorite flat fella… CZeeO Rob Vardeman is out of town so Flat Robs are on the map NOW until Sunday at 23:59 MHQ. We also have Flat Robs for sale in the store for the weekend so stock up and deploy while you can!  Flat Robs a $5 each and you can buy those HERE. 

Please note that since it is Friday we won’t have anyone in the office for the weekend, so Coinz shipments won’t go out until Monday. We appreciate your understanding and we hope you’re as excited as we are for all the coinz craziness!

Munzee on!

Introducing the Timeshare Munzee!

Howdy folks! Rockin’ Rob Vardeman has a special opportunity for YOU to be a part of the Royal Zee Travel family. We’re excited to announce the latest in our line of Destination Munzees: The Timeshare Munzee!

The new Timeshare Munzee is the latest in our Destination line of munzees alongside the Motel, Hotel and Virtual Resort. This physical credit item features 5 Rooms so the first 5 players to cap the Timeshare get a room deployed. Here’s the kicker though, Rooms only stay deployed for 30 days!

At the end of 30 days the rented room is archived and a new room is then available for the first player to cap the Timeshare. This new room will be available for any player including the person who just had their room archived, which means after 30 days you can recap to earn another room.

Proximity: A Timeshare must be at least 2000 feet away any other Timeshares and 500 feet away from other Destination Munzees.

Rooms: There are 5 rooms available in the Timeshare. After 30 days a rented room will be archived and a new room will open up.

Deploy: 100 points

Capture: You can earn 25 points and then 10 points per room rented.

CapOn: 10 points per room for the owner and 10 points for the renter of room

Release: The Timeshare will be a MunzPak exclusive for the month of May. Each MunzPak subscriber will receive three (3) Timeshare credits with their May MunzPak. To sign up visit munzpak.com.

NOTE: If you’re not currently a MunzPak subscriber and want to get the Timeshare you need to signup on May 1st to receive the May shipment. If you are interested in April’s MunzPak you can subscribe now to receive this month’s shipment and then change your billing date on May 1st to receive May’s shipment.

We’re also releasing two new lines of totally tubular Timeshare Badges you can earn by deploying and renting rooms.

We’re excited to see where everyone starts deploying their new Timeshares and thank you all once again for helping grow the game in new and unique ways!

Munzee on!

UPDATE: These are being launched in the May PHYSICAL MunzPak only. They are a physical type credit.

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!
