Welcome to the family!

We would like to welcome a new Munzee type to the growing family!

The Munzee Stash!

The Munzee stash is a colorful cube to be deployed with a choice of 6 vibrant colors.  The color you choose will have a unique distinction on the map, a special capture icon, and be 1/6 of earning a special badge.  Here’s a screen shot of each color deployed around MHQ:

map

The stash comes pre-loaded with 25 generic stickers to trade with players who find the stash. Another unique feature is the ability for the first five who find the stash to deploy their own sticker (included) on one side of the cube. The points will accumulate similar to the Munzee motel. Take a sticker, leave a sticker! It’s a great motto for the new stash!

Due to limited stock and shipping costs these items will be sold at Munzee events and through authorized Munzee resellers for the month of April on a trial basis.  Additional quantities will be added to the store soon when all shipping requirements are met.  Be sure to place your order today!

And last, but not least, THE BADGE!  When you deploy a Munzee Stash in each of the six colors available (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet) you will earn The Irish Badge.  This is the perfect badge to add to your collection.

RainbowBadgeWe can’t wait to see the map light up with the colors of the rainbow and know you will welcome The Munzee Stash to the family!

Munzee Player of the Week Spotlight: TheRealGigi (Tammy Teel)

If you’ve ever needed a positive, helpful friend in the Munzee community, then you know who this person is.  She’s rallied multiple clans together to rank in the top 20, she’s the admin of nearly 70% of the Munzee help groups out there, and you can count on people like her and our previous Player of the Week Ken to turn any Munzee frowns upside down!  This week’s Player of the Week Spotlight goes to Tammy Teel, though you may know her as TheRealGigi!

Let’s take a moment to “meet” TheRealGigi by reading below!

Who are you? TheRealGigi

Where in the world do you live?  Spring Hill, USA

How long have you played Munzee?  10 months

How did you find Munzee?  That’s an interesting story… I have always loved treasure hunts and scavenger hunts… including the movie The Goonies!! One of the things Jay(PiedPiper) and I had in common and discussed on our first date. He mentioned he liked to Geocache, however had become more involved in Munzee. I immediately searched for Munzee on the web and downloaded to my phone. The next night we went to dinner on the way home he told me to pull up the app, as he would stop and let me cap an Easter Egg on the map… I was addicted at that moment and started searching the area, then state after state to find the seas of green. That is where the adventure began, and my entire life changed literally. Jay did teach me to cache, although considering my RA, I am not always physically able to do the difficult rare finds he enjoys so Munzee is perfect for me.

What do you enjoy most about Munzee?  I truly wish I had enough time to explain how God has blessed my life via Munzee, I will just say every day is a gift to me, I look forward to our munzee adventures each day. each person I have met through Munzee has proven to be an asset in my life. I now have friends across the states and around the world. Jay and I actually plan our travel routes by looking at the Munzee Map. Right now My Most Favorite thing about Munzee is watching Our Dream come true by building the Franklin Tennessee Specials Garden with our friends David, Amy, and Gracie Scarborough and now Jon Haag and Chelsey Hall. Together we have become the #1 Mystery Cluster in North America and still growing, that doesn’t even include the multitude of Virtuals, Diamonds, Weapons, Golds, Motels and Quiz Munzees and now Virtual Mysteries…thanks to the Munzee Family.

What is on your wish list?  Personal Wish list is to physically place a Munzee in all 50 states. Wish List from Munzee ? First on the list is the revamped version of the app for the iPhone, I know Patience is a virtue…as I prefer one without the bugs so looking forward to all the hard work I know is being put into its creation. I have always wanted Mystery Munzees to be worth at least 10 points for the cap with the continued increments of 5 pts up to 50 pts, however I suppose that could alleviate part of the “Mystery”. I also want to see more special icons and badges… I enjoy capturing others Socials including trading for the Rare ones…(Hint Hint…Social-Butterfly Badge?) and enjoy the challenges of the badges. (Editor’s note: Tammy was interviewed last week before some big announcements… Did we “do good” Tammy?!?!)

Tell us about yourself!  My name is Tammy Teel although my Grands call me Gigi. I am a mother of 3 daughters Catherine(foxxygirllt), Jessica (lulubell8709) and Laura(GeorgiaPeach) 2 granddaughters Juliana & Emma Kate and 1 grandson Collin, as well as part time mom to Jay’s Children Ashley(Peanut) and Clinton(TheLoneRooster).

Jay and I both are blessed with jobs allowing us to work from home, however this can lead to no outside world interaction if you are not careful. Munzee has truly made a difference in my life in multiple ways, especially my physical activity level which has already proven to be beneficial for my health. Jay and I munzee together on a daily basis, and it is a great way for us to spend quality time with our teens. Recently with the introduction of clan wars and watching our dream come true of creating a Specials Garden in Tennessee we have started meeting up with several of our teammates (now great friends) and capping and deploying as a group. Then again, I never meet a stranger and can talk to anyone about Munzee as Jay will be the first to attest. I enjoy cooking and used to have a pretty good second income baking and decorating cakes for birthdays, showers and weddings, thus the relation in cooking and cupcakes in my socials. I am very honored to have been nominated and chosen as Player of the Week… and I Greatly Appreciate the hard-work and efforts MHQ puts into making the game so enjoyable.

Tammy was sweet enough to share her Social Munzee with us!  Check it out:

Munzee Player of the Week: Rob Verstappen!

If you’re a Munzee player and you’re ever lost in Europe, there’s only one person you need to meet: Rob Verstappen.  Lovingly referred to as “Dutch Rob”, “The Rob V overseas” and even “Rob’s other Brother”, Robje64 is the friendly “face” of our European Munzee community.  Always helpful, he’s a proactive Munzee player that’s strengthened the Munzee community worldwide, even volunteering to help us with translations for the Munzee app!  Now tip your hat to the other Mr. V. and check out this interview below!

Who are you?  Robje64

Where in the world do you live?  Venlo, Netherlands

How long have you played Munzee?  Since Feb 23, 2012

How did you find Munzee?

I was at a Stammtisch ‘caching Event.  When I was there I saw the QR code in the well-known green colors.  It got my attention right away! Since I always explore new things on my iPhone, I immediately downloaded the app and signed in.  I scanned it, and there it was: my first 5 points!  From the first day I started playing Munzee, I liked to looked at the map and check out all the Munzee pins out there to capture!  In the beginning, there weren’t that many in my area.  So I started to look further. Planned a trip to Germany, which included a small “hike”.  That hike had many Munzee, and every time I heard “PING” it drove me further, to capture one after another! (Editors note: sounds like Munzee “Madness” to us!)

What do you enjoy most about Munzee?

As I played, my passion for Munzee grew and grew. I started to contact people. First Germans, Dutch people and some Belgians.  Then it took off rapidly all over the world, contacting Munzee players, networking, and making friends.  Time and Friendships swept me up in the moment, before this game, I never thought it possible to meet and befriend so many people.

After a while i got in contact with the wonderful people from MHQ.  And not to put too many words on paper, nowadays i try to arrange as much as possible on Munzee stuff as i possibly can.  Setting up Facebook groups, connecting with other players, and volunteering Munzee help for new players.

And just another thing i want to point out what i really liked:
Last Friday was my 49th Birthday. I had a 2 days of training at a garrison in the middle of the Netherlands.  When I arrived at the garrison in the morning, I was surprised with many Virtual Munzees and Mustache Munzees to congratulate me!  How cool is that? 😉

Nowadays, I am fortunate to volunteer testing various projects for Munzee.  How involved can one get in the game? It’s super, and I love it!  So the most I enjoy about Munzee, is getting connected with lovely people all over the world and being part of this wonderful community.

What is on your wish list?

On my wishlist… hmm… that’s something to think about for a while…

Some suggestions that immediately come to mind:
– Seeing at least 1 Munzee being deployed in every Country around the world.
– Events being well organized, so more people can meet in real life.
– The whats-next-on-the-surprise list from Munzee coming out.
– The possibility to link broken Munzee via the app.

Oh! and visiting Munzee headquarters one day!

Tell us about yourself!

For the ones who don’t know me, my real name is Rob.  I am in the Royal Dutch Military at Oirschot, Netherlands (near Eindhoven).  I am married to the most lovely wife on this planet, Monique.  Here she is below!

POTW_robje64

Normally when I go out to deploy/capture Munzee, she’s always by my side. Being very supportive, helping out, and just walking together having fun with the game.  We joined the lovely people in the Clan Cologne. Going on streaks together and, as most people know me, eating and drinking with all who wants to join! We can all say that Munzee has taken a very important game in our lives. And when you are that addicted you better make sure to have fun as we do!

At home, you can usually find me on my iMac. Creating graphics to share with the Munzee community (Mostly for the Facebook groups)! And of course planning the next trip, discussing with Monique what we want to see or where we want to get most points out of a day.

I’d like to thank all players around the world for being in our lives.  No matter if we have met you or not. Every munzee is a feast!
Thanks to Munzee HQ for letting us (not only me, Monique as well) be player of the week.  If you meet me in person i have a special Munzee gift for you!

And for this special occasion i also created a new Social munzee. 😉

*President Rob Note* “Dutch” Rob is a really important part of our European player base, noted by his honorary title, European Ambassador. It was a pleasure to meet my “brother” in person on my recent trip to Cologne. I can’t imagine anyone taking more care of the details and organizing a great opportunity to meet so many of our amazing European players. I’m happy to honor Rob for his impact on Munzee today!

Munzee Player of the Week: Sean Miller

Our players have chased down his socials all over the web.  And like a super-hero, he’s chased each of you down and reached out to support Men’s Health with Virtuous Virtuals all over the globe.  Always helpful and always smiling, this week’s Player of the Week is player batmanandrobin!  Successfully blending the world of Munzee with the world of Music Entertainment with Coxillah.com, Sean Miller can be found at a moment’s notice offering help to his fellow players and engaging our online community with a positive attitude.  He’s received the highest number of independent player nominations from the Munzee community, and we’re happy to highlight him!

batmanandrobin

Who are you? 

batmanandrobin aka Sean Miller and Sarah Hitsman

Where in the world do you live? 

Petoskey/Rochester Hills Michigan

How long have you played Munzee?

2 years

How did you find Munzee? 

When my girlfriend and I started dating to keep our relationship going and keep us doing things together we would go on road trips throughout Michigan. One day we ended up in Mackinaw City and I had remembered where a previously found geocache was and we found a qr code attached to a sign near where the cache was supposed to be. We quickly downloaded and never looked back.

What do you enjoy most about Munzee?

I enjoy how it forces me outside of my house and gives me something to do. I also love how I have been able to meet players from around the state and even some from outside.

What is on your wish list?

Most of the things I really wanted to see have come out for me to enjoy, so right now I am very content with the game.

Tell us about yourself!

I used to start playing with my girlfriend but she has since somewhat lost interest in the game. Our real names are Sean Miller and Sarah Hitsman. I am a Junior in college at Oakland University and am a journalism major with a music and world music minor.

My main project I have been working on is my website Coxillah.com (visit and you may find some socials). The theme of the site can best be described as a sort of “Rolling Stone” and also does review and PR work for independent musicians.

My last ongoing project is my music. I have multiple songs in the works involving mainstream music elements and other world music aspects including Afro-Cuban, different African elements and some others that will hopefully combine into a great musical project that can help me pursue my dream as a mainstream musicians making a living off my music.

As a little shout-out to Sean, he’s provided us with a Social he’d like to share with the entire Munzee community:

Munzee Player of the Week Spotlight: KFL200

 

Munzee Player of the Week: KFL200

Munzee Player of the Week: KFL200

He’s friendly, he’s helpful, and he’s awesome!  This week’s Munzee Player of the Week Spotlight shines on player KFL200, also known as Ken Fairhurst!  Ken’s one of our many amazing UK players, and we’re lucky to have him as a part of our worldwide Munzee community.  Ken’s been a pillar in our international community and an excellent resource for new players.  Because of this, we’ve decided to introduce him to all our players, new and old!  Continue reading below to get to know KFL200/Ken!

 Where in the world do you live?   

Gt Altcar, Nr Formby, UK

How long have you played Munzee?  

6 Months

How did you find Munzee?  

Like a lot of Munzers I used to be a ‘Cacher. One day I got a comment on one of my caches:

TFTC, there should have been a Munzee here as well but no sign, a pity as it was an Easter egg.

I thought,”Munzee – Easter Egg; what on earth is he talking about?” There was only one thing for me to do and that was Google “Munzee.” I liked what I saw so downloaded the app and I have Munzee’d almost every day since.

 What do you enjoy most about Munzee?

I love Munzee as it gets me out walking with my dogs, seeing some of the beautiful area round where I live, places I never knew existed if I didn’t Munzee.

WP_20131030_004
I love to be out deploying and seeing the map turning green along the routes I have been, and it’s great to receive emails saying people are capping my Munzees.  If I get new people capping, I send them a “thank you” message hoping it will help inspire them to come back and cap some more.

What is on your wish list?

I think MHQ do a great job in keeping the game fresh, there is always something new round the corner, just keep the specials coming!

One thing I would change would be the Mysteries, it is rather disappointing to only get 5 points, perhaps it  could be upped to 10 minimum? I would also like to see them sold monthly in limited quantities, possibly virtual, or like the Motels. This would definitely put everyone on a level playing field.

Tell us about yourself!

My real name is Ken (aka KFL200), I am retired now but as my wife is disabled I can only get out for a couple of hours a day.  I Munzee with my 2 dogs Baxter & Bailey who love to be out and about, they look forward to their daily dose of Munzee.

Happy Dogs make Happy Munzee Buddies!

At home I spend a lot of time on the computer, planning new routes and working out where to go the next day. I also enjoy the social side checking on all the Facebook messages and helping out with questions or problems where I can, and chatting to other clan members who live in the USA and Netherlands.

I set up a Facebook group called ‘Happy Munzees’ only happy posts are allowed (no negativity, mud-slinging, etc…) which has proved to be quite popular, and recently I set up a basic ‘Happy Munzee’ web site that brings all the Munzee stuff together in one place as a resource for new players:

www.munzee.ukcanals.net

I would just like to say I am really honoured to be chosen as ‘Player of the week’, it is something I never expected with so many worthy people out there. Thank you!

Ken, we thank you for being a valued member of the Munzee community!  It’s not always about the points, and the positive energy you bring to the game makes us a Happy Team Munzee!

Do you know a player that inspires you, or does their part to grow the world of Munzee?  Know a Munzee super-hero, or maybe just someone that makes you smile?  If so, send us a message at iLoveYou@Munzee.com with their name, player name, and your info as well!

Oktoberfest

The Munzee Oktoberfest celebration is underway!  It ends October 6.  Get out there and capture those icons!

Oktoberfest! Wunderbar!

September 21 at midnight CEST ( GMT +2 ) Munzee kicks off the Oktoberfest celebration!  This launch coincides with the Oktoberfest event which originates in Munich but is celebrated across the globe.  Munzee will celebrate from September 21st through October 6th.  We will place 3 different icons on the Munzee map which will “bounce” all over the world.  This bouncing will work the same as our birthday cake celebration with a shorter time limit per icon.

Brezel Pretzel_128px  Bierkrug DarkBeer_128pxLederhosen Lederhosen_128px

How to capture one of the Oktoberfest icons:  1) wait for one to land near you. 2) Check to see the amount of remaining time. 3) Gauge the distance and time related to your location.  4) Apply maximum speed allowed in order to get the capture.     ♥Munzee

And now the actual rules. Oktoberfest icons will land on REGULAR Munzees across the entire world. The first person to capture the Munzee before the 6 hour time limit expires will be awarded the icon and related points. Previously captured Munzees become active again when a special icon is attached. You may NOT capture a special icon on a Munzee you own. Premium members have a “Specials” filter for use in the app. If an icon is not captured within the 6 hour window it will jump to a new location somewhere else in the world.  There will be 333 of each icon active at any given time. This is a total of 999 icons circulating around the world. This increases the likelihood of players receiving a capture and earning more than one icon. Attempting to capture one of each icon is a great goal *hint, hint*  Sind Sie bereit, Oktoberfest feiern?  Dieses Video wird Ihnen im Geiste zu bekommen!Oktoberfestflyer

September Clan War

The first weapon to acquire is the brass knuckles.  This weapon requires only 100 points from each of the 10 players in your clan.  Due to the relative ease of reaching 100 points the brass knuckles are mildly effective in the battle.  They will earn you a few points and hopefully encourage you to move forward in the battle.  This weapon basically assures your clan won’t end up in last place!

***Remember*** Weapons are assigned each night at Midnight MHQ time which means you have 24 hours to accumulate your points before the cutoff for us to send weapons.

The second weapon is called the Munzee mace.  It is very effective and will be a GREAT weapon to add to your permanent arsenal.  All we can say at this point is, you absolutely MUST get your clan to this level!  When the first clan earns the mace we will post here what the requirements are.

Are you ready for war???

September Clan War Weapons!

September will be a special Clan War Month!

Team Munzee will reward your clan with weapons when you achieve certain levels of play.

Rules:

  1. Your clan must be full (10 players) to qualify for weapon rewards.  No partial clans will qualify.  Visit the forum to recruit additional players if needed.  A separate forum account is necessary to interact.
  2. Munzee Code of Conduct applies to all players.  No “phantom” accounts or multiple accounts for only one real person.
  3. All members of your clan must reach the point level in order to earn the reward for the entire clan.
  4. Rewards will be sent via email to each member of your clan.
  5. Individual weapon rewards will not be available.  Entire clan or none.
  6. Clan weapons will be calculated and dispersed via email nightly at Midnight MHQ time.

Weapons:

          Brass knuckles, Munzee mace, Munzee longsword, and “The Chuck”.  Function of weapons will be explained via email when earned by entire clan.  🙂  Believe me, you will want them!

Levels:

  • Brass knuckles will be awarded when each member of your clan reaches at least 100 points.  This is not a cumulative total.  It is based on each individual in your clan earning 100 points or more.
  • Munzee mace level will be announced when the first clan earns the weapon.  If no clan has achieved this level by September 6th we will update this post.
  • Munzee longsword level will be announced when the first clan earns the weapon.  If no clan has achieved this level by September 11th we will update this post.
  • The Chuck level will be announced when the first clan earns the weapon.  If no clan has achieved this level by September 15th we will update this post.

Team Munzee wishes you the best of luck in the upcoming clan war! Grab some clan mates, get out there, and grow the map!

Chuck Munzee2

May the odds be EVER in your favor.
