Announcing the #DontTellRob Sale!

Rob has gone missing!

Well not really. Our faithful Munzee President Rob Vardeman is just taking a much needed vacation and left the rest of us in charge. So while Rob is away, MHQ will play! The power has gone to our heads though, and we’ve decided to have a #DontTellRob sale in the Munzee store all week. Starting NOW until Saturday at midnight MHQ Time we’ll have exclusive sales on a variety of items. Get to the store now, before Rob finds out!

flatbobFlat Rob Pins

Flat Bob had his fun masquerading around for Eventzee, but now Flat Rob is taking his rightful place on the Munzee map. Flat Rob pins will be virtual munzees available for $5 in the online store until Saturday at 23:59 MHQ time. Once they’re gone, they won’t be available for purchase until Rob leaves again- and he doesn’t do that very often!

These unique virts can be deployed anywhere without having to worry about proximity to other types of munzees. Proximity rules will be in effect regarding other Flat Rob pins (i.e. 50ft between other players’ deploys). These munzees will earn you 19 points for deploy and a 76 point split for capture and cap-on. You’ll also get a badge for capping or deploying a Flat Rob.

There’s a slight catch, though. Flat Rob pins can only be deployed and captured while Rob is out of the office (vacations, Munzee events, holidays, etc). So make sure you deploy these pins before Saturday. These will count toward personal streaks and can be capped by a blast cap.

Be sure to share your Flat Rob location on social media and include the #DontTellRob hashtag as well. So let’s see Flat Rob all across the map until the real Rob gets back on Saturday!

These are available for purchase and will be visible on the map until 23:59 MHQ time on Saturday, October 31st.

JewelPackBejeweled

Hot off the heels of the Family Jewels Badge we have a Jewel Credit Pack available in the store for $15. These four jewel credits would normally cost you $21- so it’s like getting an Amethyst for free! Who could pass up that offer? 

This includes:

  • 1 Diamond credit
  • 1 Ruby credit
  • 1 Aquamarine credit
  • 1 Amethyst credit.

This is available until 23:59 MHQ time on Saturday, October 31st.

Blast_720 (1)Blast Off

Starting today you will be credited a free Blast Capture for spending $50 or more in the Munzee store. So bombs away!

This is available until 23:59 MHQ time on Saturday, October 31st.

Surprise Sacks

Starting Wednesday Oct. 28th at 09:00 MHQ time, randomized Virtual Grab Bags will be available in the Munzee store. These grab bags will be $15 for a minimum of $20 value. 

Items that they may include are:

  • Blast Captures
  • Virtual Colors
  • Hotels
  • Motels
  • Jewels (Diamond, Ruby, Aquamarine, Amethyst)
  • Socials
  • Secure Socials
  • Rovers

To top it off, random purchases will be chosen to receive Double Grab Bags which feature double the goods!

This is available until 23:59 MHQ time on Saturday, October 31st.

So get to the store and remember, #DontTellRob! Let’s give him a nice surprise when he comes back from a week of rest and relaxation!

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!

If you know a player that should be nominated for Munzee Player of the Week, shoot us a message at iLoveYou@Munzee.com.  Please note, this is a super active campaign.  We may not be able to get back to everyone, but you’re helping to grow the list of amazing people in the Munzee community!
