Update on the Birthday Present Special

Sadly, this is the last weekend of Birthday Month. While we hate to watch the celebration come to an end, we know there are bigger and better things to come. In full Munzee spirit, though, we’ve decided to go all out this weekend. If you weren’t aware, we started a Double Point Weekend this morning at 00:01 MHQ time. Of course, that’s not all.

For the remainder of Birthday Month, we’ve also updated the Birthday Specials. We’ve made two big changes to them:

  1. Scatter Radius: While a 5 mile scatter radius was representative of our 5th birthday, it isn’t necessarily ideal for all players. Now, instead of scattering within 5 miles, the Birthday Icons will scatter within 1 mile.
  2. Credit Percentage: There are quite a few items you can earn from the Birthday Icons. We’ve changed up the algorithm to increase the chances of getting Diamond and Ruby credits when you capture the Birthday Icon.

So get out there and help us end Birthday Month with a bang! Have fun, and Munzee on!

Player of the Week: Stacy Thompson-Numbers (Freecyclestacy)

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 Stacy Thompson-Numbers (Freecyclestacy).

IMG_1439Who are you?

Stacy Thompson-Numbers, Munzee name – Freecyclestacy

Where in the world do you live?
In Central Massachusetts, right outside of Worcester.

How long have you played Munzee?
I have played for just over two years, starting in July 2014.

How did you find Munzee?
I was searching for some family friendly activities that would get us outside and exercising. I found a couple of geo-location games, one of them being Munzee. We live in a very active area, so we were hooked from the start!

What do you most enjoy about Munzee?
There are a lot of things I love about Munzee! I munzee with my husband, kids, brother, mother, and sometimes, my dad will tag along. We love spending this time together and have created lots of memories. I also love being part of the Munzee community. Those local to me are simply amazing people. They are always willing to share their Munzee knowledge, putting on events so we can socialize and get points, and are just really nice people in general. Also, I love the new places which Munzee has brought me. I would never have found these places otherwise. Finally, I like the exercise I get while Munzeeing. There is nothing like getting out in nature, capturing and deploying with family, all while getting some exercise!

What is on your wish list?
I would love to take an RV road trip cross-country with family, visiting all of the Munzee hot spots along the way, eventually getting to McKinney to meet those that make this game possible. I am sure this would make for lots of laughs and family memories along the way!


Tell us about yourself:
I am a stay-at-home mom of 2 kids, ages 3 and 1. They are the focus of my life, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. My 3-year-old loves finding munzees and is great at spotting them! Sometimes he finds them before me! I often name my munzees after family memories or funny things my kids do. I have lived in Massachusetts for nearly all of my life and enjoy the peacefulness it brings. Family is very important to me, and I love spending time with them, be it Munzeeing, caching, grilling, playing board games, or vacationing at Disney!

Other hobbies include:
Along with Munzee, I also play WallaBee and cache. I love being outdoors in nature, gardening, backing with my kids, crafting, grilling, playing board games, and anything Disney-related!

Any last words?
A huge thank you to those that nominated me. This is a huge honor, and I am so appreciative. I also want to thank everyone in my local Munzee community. You are all such amazing people, and I feel lucky to be part of this community — Thank you!! Play the game however you can, and have a great time doing it! Munzee on!

Freecyclestacy also included some socials, so cap away!

The Legend of the Pink Diamond

It’s been almost a month since the Dragons unleashed their fury upon the Munzee map. Traversing the globe and igniting fires has led to chaos among the other two Mythological Munzees. They say beauty comes from chaos, though, and we have stumbled upon some of that beauty.


Among the riches that the Dragons were guarding, we found a never before seen gem. This diamond is believe to have been altered by the fire and strength of the Dragons. It gleams a light shade and has become known as the Pink Diamond. While the history of the Pink Diamond isn’t completely known, we do know the point structure of it:

Deploy: 45 points

Capture: Split of 25 points with owner; minimum of 5 points

CapOn: Split of 25 points with capper; minimum of 5 points

(Examples: 20 points for capper, 5 points for owner; 10 points for capper, 15 points for owner)

The rarity of the Pink Diamond is similar to the Topaz Munzee. As such, the Pink Diamond will be a MunzPak exclusive. It will be introduced for the first time in August’s MunzPak. If you’re not yet a MunzPak subscriber, you can visit to join and be one of the first players to get your hands on one!

Have fun hunting the new Pink Diamond, and Munzee on!

Player of the Week: Jeffrey Thompson (Disneyfan4life85)

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 Jeffrey Thompson (Disneyfan4life85).

image1 (1)Who are you?
My name is Jeffrey Thompson, better known as Disneyfan4life85.

Where in the world do you live?
I live in Winchendon, Massachusetts which no one in the state, let alone the rest of the world, knows where that is. 😀

How long have you played Munzee?
Just over two years,

How did you find Munzee?
I actually found out about it while hiking for some containers with my sister (Freecyclestacy) and her husband (Jasnumbs), and we were curious about what we found. We looked it up and found it was a munzee. We were hooked from there.

What do you most enjoy about Munzee?
A couple things I really love:

  1. Meeting new people playing and forming friendships with them, seeing, and meeting up with them.
  2. Deploying. I really love coming up with names and helping people achieve points and different munzees. I love deploying at places I visit such as Florida and my surrounding states. I recently went to Gettysburg, PA for July 4th and earned my Super Duper ULTRA Streak!! As the badge icon shows, I was, to say the least, PUMPED! 😀

Me and Rafiki

What is on your wish list?
It’s a big one, but to Cap and Deploy something in every state in America, and maybe someday, the WORLD 😀

Tell us about yourself:
Well I love the outdoors and hiking. I love spending time with my family and niece and nephew! I love animals, especially a specific famous mouse and everything he’s about 😀

Other hobbies include:
Hiking, Golf, Disc Golf (frolf), Traveling, Movies

Any last words?
A wild explorer is a friend to all, be trees or plants, or tiny fishes, or those that live underground such as moles.
