2017 In Review and Looking Forward to 2018

2017 was a great year. We tried to encompass our theme of “Everyone. Everywhere.” into all that we did. There were learning experiences along the way, but the community consistently pushed us to provide the best game and experiences we could. For that, we thank you tremendously. Below, we have some “year-in-review” stats and messages from the team followed by more information about our 2018 theme.


Munzee Events from Louise

Wow, what a year 2017 has been for Munzee Events. To everyone everywhere, thank you all for keeping me so busy!

We’ve had some fantastic events this year from the Tea Parties to our 6th Birthday celebrations, the MunzFit Events to the Christmas Parties that are just wrapping up now. 525 events to be precise, most hosted by you, our wonderful players, and some hosted by us at MHQ. We were delighted to welcome so many of you to our new office in McKinney back in September and had our first events with the whole MHQ  team.

We have greatly enjoyed coming to your events all over the world too, thank you for inviting us and being such wonderful hosts. Personally, my absolute highlight was celebrating my birthday with over 100 Munzee players at the Australia Day events back in January!

We’ve introduced new exciting merchandise exclusive to events and created Emerald Gardens all over the world. We also hit new record attendance levels with the events in Germany this summer, absolutely brilliant stuff!

I look forward to meeting more of you virtually as I work with you to create your Munzee Events and can’t wait to meet even more of you out and about at your amazing events.

Thank you for your support, Munzee On!

There are quite a few things that could be said about 2017. We went through a lot of changes in efforts to do what we thought was best for the game and company. The community was always at the forefront when we made decisions, and “Everyone. Everywhere.” wasn’t just a theme but a way of thinking.  Check out some of the stats from this year:

As we mentioned in the podcast, our theme for 2018 is “The Time is Now.” Over the years, there has been projects and ideas that we haven’t had the time or resources to implement. With the staff and resources we have after merging with Freeze Tag, we can finally put these ideas into action. These range from gameplay changes to a new app and work on them will begin immediately. While you may not see them immediately, be sure that we are working to make the game and app better than ever.

Once again, thank you for everything you have done to help grow the game and support other member’s of the community.

Happy New Year, and Munzee on!

MHQ Visit Requests

We love it when players choose to visit MHQ. To give you the best experience possible, we would love for you to let us know in advance. This is especially the case if you are traveling long distances and have a limited time to visit MHQ.

To ensure you have a great time visiting us, we have set up a Google Form that can be found here and on our contact page.

After filling out this form (which contains contact information and date/time of visit among other things), you will be contacted by Teraca (our Director of HR) to confirm your visit as well as let you know any pertinent information. If there is a conflict with your request, she will try and work out a solution with you.

**Please note that it is not necessary to fill out this form when attending official MHQ events found on the Munzee Calendar such as our 6th Birthday Event or MHQ Bash. The on-site Munzee store is also open anytime during our work hours, so this form is specific to those players who are interested in a special tour/visit.

We’ve had players from all over the world visit MHQ, and we can’t wait to meet more people. Schedule your visit today!

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!
