Get Fit Munzee Trail Recap

Hey, everyone! Matt here. I was off last week, but I wanted to recap my trip to South Carolina for the kickoff of the Get Fit Munzee Trail!

Erica (AgentSmiley) approached us about creating a Munzee trail as part of her Silver Award for Girl Scouts. I, an Eagle Scout myself, loved the idea of using Munzee to help with a community service project for a great organization. The team worked with Erica and her family to plan and release a 30 stop trail in Spartanburg, South Carolina dubbed the Get Fit Munzee Trail. This trail is a permanent fixture on the Munzee map, and can be seen using the Tourism filter.

The trail went live on Saturday, September 2nd with a kickoff event. We spent the morning walking the 2.45 mile walking trail while capping the new Trail Munzees and event icons that had been deployed. This was some players’ first time playing and attending an event, and it was great to see the Munzee community in action helping them learn.

After the morning event, we all went out to cap some more then met up for a “cool down” event to grab some food, enjoy each other’s company, and cap more event munzees.

I had a great time, and I want to thank everyone who came out or supported from afar. I’m happy that we were able to help Erica with her project as well as grow the Munzee community.

Rob and I will be back at events soon, and we can’t wait to meet and see more of you!

Munzee on!

Player of the Week: Marko Lehtonen (matanome)

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 Marko Lehtonen (matanome).

Who are you?
My name is Marko Lehtonen. In the Munzee world, I’m known as matanome. I’m married with two children. At first, our whole family played with the same account, but nowadays, my daughters have their own accounts. My wife, Tarja, still sometimes plays with me on the same account.

Where in the world do you live?
I live in Turku, Finland. To those of you who have never heard of Finland, it is a land of a thousand lakes situated in northern Europe. Turku is a beautiful city on the southwest coast of Finland. In Turku, we have a great amount of different types of munzees, so each and every one of you is most welcome here to play with us! Feel free to contact me if you need any kind of help while playing and staying here. 🙂

How long have you played Munzee?
We have played for almost three and a half years now.

How did you find Munzee?
The very first time I heard about the game was from my work mate, but we didn’t create an account and try the game until after my wife had mentioned it to me a bit later. At first, I didn’t like the same as much as my wife and daughters did, but after a knee surgery, I needed to find a reason to walk a lot. Then it really hit me!

What do you most enjoy about Munzee?
The main reason I like the game is that it keeps me going. I have lost over 30 kgs just by walking and capturing munzees! I also like meeting new people and making new friends. By playing, I can be outside and enjoy the beautiful nature here in Finland and also get to know many places we have never been to before (even in our hometown!). In the game at the moment, I mostly like capturing free rooms and the Mythological Munzees, and collecting badges, of course.

What is on your wish list?
I have so many wishes! 😀 More badges, of course, and it would be nice to get ZeeOps credits and blast captures as clan rewards every once in a while. I have already met Rob (he was a nice fellow), but I would like to meet other Munzee staff, too, so please visit Turku soon… I would also like to have more clan war months where you actually have to move and collect the points by capturing greenies and other physical munzees. I also dream about virtuals that every Premium Member would get every once in a while. They would look like the national flag of the player’s home country, so, for instance, I could deploy Finnish flag munzees at places I have been and I could see which countries other players who have visited our town are from.

Tell us about yourself!
I am a 38-year-old young man who works as a warehouse worker at a distribution center in Kaarina. I’m a hockey enthusiast and support the local ice hockey club Turun palloseura (TPS)

Other hobbies include:
My other hobbies include being a floorball referee, playing video games, and Pokemon Go, and watching movies and good TV series.

Any last words?
Thanks to those who nominated me! You are all very welcome in Turku. Munzee on!

matanome has also included some socials, so cap away!

Munzee Hurricane Harvey Relief Update!

A HUGE thank you is in order to all of our players worldwide! Through the sale of Water Mysteries and Assorted Mini Packs, as well as WallaBee Mixers, we gathered $7,500 in donations for Hurricane Harvey Relief!

This is a huge testament to the compassion of our community and our players all across the world. We have donated $7,000 of the funds to the American Red Cross in their constant relief efforts in South Texas, and preparation for Hurricane Irma bearing down on Florida. We’re also happy to announce that we have donated $500 to our friends at Shutt’er Down Ranch. They went down to Southeast Texas with supplies and helped rescue animals who were displaced due to the storm. Their work continues and we are happy to support them at this time.

We can’t express how proud we are to have such a great community that rallies around those in need. Thank you, again, for your support and generosity.

Munzee on!

Introducing Places Streak Badges!

After expanding the Places capture badge line last week we’re excited to announce new streak badges for capturing Places Munzees! One of the great things about Places Munzees is that you can capture them every day and visit your favorite Places over and over again. Because of this we want our players to see how long they can keep the streak going.

To earn these badges you will just have to consecutively capture a Places Munzee for a week, a month and a year.

CAUTION: MUNZEERS AT WORK – Capture any Places Munzee for 7 days in a row.

Now even though you can cap the same Places Munzee everyday you can also earn the badge by capturing any Places Munzee worldwide. That way you can still travel and capture lots of fun Places all while keeping your streak going.

You can currently buy Places Munzees in the Munzee online store, so help out your fellow travelers and deploy a few Places! You can buy one of each Places Munzee a month.

These badges go live Thursday August 31st at 15:00 MHQ and they will be retroactive in case you’ve already started capping them daily.  We’re excited to see all the Places you’ll go! Good luck and Munzee on!

Hurricane Harvey Relief Sale

As you may know, Southeast Texas was hit by a major hurricane late last week. Hurricane Harvey was a Category 4 hurricane when it made landfall north of Corpus Christi, Texas and has since moved north causing catastrophic damage in the Houston area. It has also caused flooding in Austin and San Antonio and is expected to affect Louisiana as well.

Many members of Team Munzee have family and friends, including members of the Munzee community, who live in affected areas. This is a very worrisome time, and the impact of this disaster may have a global impact. We want to show that Munzee and our community are here to support those in need.

Starting at 12:00 MHQ time TODAY, Water Mystery Munzees and 20-packs of assorted mini generic munzees* will be on sale with 100% of the proceeds being donated to relief for victims of Hurricane Harvey via American Red Cross. Water Mystery Munzees (pack of 10) will be available for $15 and the 20-packs of assorted mini generic munzees will be available for $3.50. These will be available until Thursday, August 31st at 23:59 MHQ time.

All of those people that have been affected are in our thoughts, and we want to help as much as possible.

Munzee on!


*The 20-packs of assorted mini generic munzees can include: Minis, Mini Urban Camos, or skinned mini generics.
