Player of the Week: Guy Henville (RaggedRobin)

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 Guy Henville (RaggedRobin).


Who are you?

My name is Guy Henville. My Munzee name is RaggedRobin**. RaggedRobin is my chosen Munzee name as for a reason only know to me. I have a wild passion for a wild flower called “Ragged Robin”.

** The name (Ragged Robin) chosen as a Munzee pseudonym has no connection with any similar sounding cartoon character, business, person or persons in the UK or World Wide, but related to the perennial herb (Lychnis flos-cuculi).

Where in the world do you live?
I live in Webridge, Surrey UK, a town by the River Way in the Elmbridge district of Surrey. It is bounded to the north by the River Thames at the mouth of the Wey, from which it gets its name. It is an outlying suburban town within the Greater London Urban Area, 16 miles (25 km) southwest of Central London.

How long have you played Munzee?
I tried to play Munzee in the early days (2011), but as I only owned a Blackberry mobile, I was held back until I was strongly advised to change to an iPhone in 2012. So, in August 2012, I became a Premium Member and have been since then.

How did you find Munzee?
I have always had a passion for treasure hunting. One day in 2011, I was out and about looking for a hidden box in the woods near my home. I located the cache, and on the inside of the lid was a square stickers with small patterned black shapes on it. It said “Scan me for points”, and there was a website in green saying www.munzee.com. Well, I tried with my phone but nothing happened, so I took a picture of the sticker. When home, I went online and found the website. The rest, you might say, is history.

What do you most enjoy about Munzee?
What is there not to enjoy when playing Munzee? It gets you out into the world, seeing new locations and often places you would normally never visit. Munzee absorbs you into its world and gets you to feel part of its community. Clan wars is a good example, with a clan of 10 players all supporting each other and playing along together as one. I started up a clan of my own called “Elmbridge Hundred Clan of 1086”, and we are an international team of players . We have lost a few team players over the wars but we have kept up the fighting spirit with loyal core players. 1. Leea1401. 🇬🇧 2. BaDo. 🇱🇺 3. Gelad. 🇨🇭 4. J1Huisman. 🇱🇺 They all started with me in 2012. And a big thank you to my other team players too..

What is on your wish list?
I am hard pressed to add a personal wish list as MHQ seems to keep the gameplay up to date regularly. We get new badges almost daily, and new Munzee game pieces, too. The Munzee Coinz have added an extra edge to the game, and I am looking forward to owning a complete series of coins, so that’s on my wish list. I would love to have a badge for the highest number of socials deployed.

Tell us about yourself!
I love socials. They are great for displaying ones own feelings in a social/sharing way.
I love the challenge and fun while being out and about. My Fitbit tracks my steps, and I have extra incentive to exercise, too.
I am currently working as a Building Surveyor for a Property Maintenance Team in Surrey near where I live, so handy with little traveling.

Other hobbies include:
My hobbies along with Munzeeing are walking, photography, architecture, and caching. I also have a passion for gadgets.

Any last words?
I would like to thank all of the Munzee team for their skill in keeping us playing and providing us all with a really entertaining game. I have added a special social to celebrate being POTW.

Am I really POTW?… me thinks!!!

Cheers everyone, and keep on Munzeeing…

RaggedRobin has included some socials, so cap away!

UPDATE: Coinz Of The Month Club

WOW- The first signup for the Coinz Of The Month Club was a HUGE hit and ended in mere minutes. Unfortunately mere minutes isn’t nearly enough time to give everyone a chance to purchase so our supply definitely didn’t meet demand. Admittedly we wanted to roll this new subscription service out slowly, but the response has been overwhelming and we will have to plan accordingly.

We have already ordered more of January’s Coinz.  Unfortunately since there is such a long production time those Coinz will not be available for a few weeks. To make up for this we will put the next round of January Coinz for sale in the Munzee Online Store once we have received them.

NOTE that this will not add you to the Club subscription, this will be just to purchase those Coinz.

Based on the excitement around Coinz the MHQ staff are working hard to reconfigure this subscription experience, so stay tuned for more info!

We want to thank all of you for your interest and patience regarding Coinz Of The Month Club. We have some exciting stuff coming in the months ahead!

Featured Munzee Toolkit: Maria Dahlin (Questing4)

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 Maria Dahlin (Questing4).

Username 
Questing4 from Brisbane, Queensland

What’s in your Munzee Toolkit?

I have tried to keep it small, but the bag keeps growing. It has 5 pockets, and sometimes, I really need more!!

The middle pocket keeps my Munzee tins and, of course, back up munzees in case I run out. When I get down to 50 generics, I buy more as I would have to no have any. LOL. This pocket also houses the selfie stick which has come in very handy when the munzees are out of arms length. For several that have been behind construction fences, the selfie stick has done the job.

Being in the tropics, a must have is insect repellent and sun screen.

The other pocket has all of the regular stuff: silicon for sticking (I also repair others if needed), tree tags, zip ties, etc.

The back pocket has two back up batteries because you always need power. Mind you, as they have a really large recharge capacity, I haven’t even exhausted one of them yet, so I really have no idea why I carry two!!

The small front pocket holds tissues, money for coffee when I have walked far enough and need a respite, and the all important Personal Munzee!

I also carry around screw drivers, scissors, and, oh, the best thing is a craft scalpel. It has been awesome to repair munzees that have been painted over as it just scrapes the paint away.

I try to keep it simple. I did carry around a hammer and nails as well, but that really made the bag heavy. Thankfully, zip ties normally will cover the same job.


If you have a Munzee Toolkit that you’d like to show off, you can email us at [email protected] 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!

Tell Us About Your Easter Traditions

Last year was a great year for events, and we want to make 2017 even better. As we plan for this year’s events, we want to incorporate our Everyone. Everywhere. theme and recognize our worldwide community. That begins with Easter events.

For the Easter event packages, we would like to reflect some of the worldwide Easter traditions. We’ve created a Google Form where you can tell us about your Easter traditions, e.g. Easter Bonnets, Easter Egg Hunts, Easter Parades, etc. These are community events and should reflect that.

We can’t wait to hear from you!

Munzee on!

Player of the Week: Lisa Brazier (WellstrandTribe)

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 Lisa Brazier (WellstrandTribe).

Who are you?
My name is Lisa, aka WellstrandTribe, named after out Stud Dairy Cow Herd prefix, Wellstrand Holsteins.

Where in the world do you live?
I live between our farm which is 45km south of Perth, Western Australia in Mundijong and our unit on the beach at Cottesloe.

How long have you played Munzee?
I have been playing since May 10, 2014.

How did you find Munzee?
I was caching near the farm – I had been trying to constantly find this one cache for months that was getting the better of me. In the notes on the GPS unit one day was a comment: “It’s right next to the munzee.” I rushed home to the farm, looked up this Munzee thing, joined, and never found the cache. Some months later, allysangels contacted me to join a clan – that was way outside the comfort zone. I declined, he persisted, and the next month, I was in. I have never looked back.

What do you most enjoy about Munzee?
The people you meet locally, interstate, and worldwide, hosting events, the satisfaction of finding that really difficult hidden physical, and of course, the badges.

What is on your wish list? 

  • To meet my amazing clan members – Munzee Madness. We all play at different levels each month, and everyone is so respectful. We work really well as a team.
  • The ability, when moving rovers and setting goals, to have a drop down box to select some or all of them for the same goal, etc, rather than doing it individually.

Tell us about yourself!
My partner and I have two boys, Rory (19yrs) and Curtis (17yrs) who I am happy to name as they all think I am nuts to play this game and it is an embarrassment to them. We were dairy farmers milking around 400 cows per day in a rotary; we have since sold the cows and now just run beef cattle. My partner, Andrew, made the comment one day that Munzeeing and dogs have sniffing light poles in common, so I bought a dog, Heide, and we now Munzee together with some other local players.

Other hobbies include:
I like volunteer work and currently tend to over 60 rose bushes at a local church; occasionally they are neglected due to playing Munzee.

Any last words?
Thank you to those who nominated me – I am very humbled and grateful. MUNZEE ON!!!

WellstrandTribe has included some socials, so cap away!
