The time to celebrate Munzee’s birthday has come again! As we mark our 4th birthday, we want to reward our players for all of their support in helping this game grow and become so much more than we thought it could be when we started. If you thought #FiestaThree was big, we can’t wait for you to see what we’ve got planned. Also, keep in mind that we like to celebrate on relevant numbered days, so watch out for days with 4 in them. Now on to the details.
What’s a birthday party without cake? Starting tomorrow, there will be 444 birthday cakes on the map at any time. They can be seen at www.munzee.com/birthday during the month. These cakes will only land on greenies not in maintenance mode (if a Munzee goes into maintenance mode while a cake is on it, it will bounce to another Munzee), and bounce every 12 hours.
Each cake starts with 4 candles. After each cap, it will lose a candle. After the 4th cap, the cake is gone and another will show up somewhere else. Capture points will be 100, 50, 25, and 20 for the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th cap, respectively. Cap on points will be 4 points each, i.e. 16 total if all are capped. Regardless of capture number, the special icon will be the full cake.
After the first capture of a cake, 4 “pieces of cake” will explode within 44444 feet. Each will provide a special capture and icon. Capture points are 44 and cap on points are 4.
We couldn’t just stop there. July 4th will be a 4x day on greenies and regular/colored virtuals ONLY (not MVM or anything other than regular greenies). This 4x day will include capture, deploy, and cap on points. This will be in effect from 00:01-23:59 MHQ on July 4th.
We’ll have more information about other events throughout the month, so make sure to keep an eye out on the blog and other social media!

With Munzee’s 4th Birthday just a few weeks away we have so much exciting news on the horizon. Our monthlong celebration of all things Munzee kicks off the first weekend of July with worldwide Birthday parties hosted by you, our players. From July 1-5 we have asked that our international community join us in celebration of four years of Munzeeing by hosting their own Munzee events.
Over the past month we’ve had lots of interest in hosting these worldwide events, due in large part to the promise of a special Birthday event badge. We would like to remind everyone that in order to get this special badge at your event there must be at least ten people who participate in the event and it must be scheduled on the official Munzee calendar. Just visit http://calendar.munzee.com/ to submit your event and be sure to follow along on social media for more Birthday announcements.
These events are also an opportunity for our various clans, groups, and communities to create custom badges and icons for the players in attendance. As stated earlier we have had a lot of events scheduled, many of which have had custom badges and icons created for their events. If you’re interested in hosting an event with custom icons/badges there is a 28 day advance notice required. So if you want special icons/badges for your Munzee Birthday Event you must have that submitted to the Munzee Event Team by June 3rd at 5pm MHQ time or there will be a surcharge.
Events are a perfect way to grow the game in your area, so be sure to spread word through all available avenues.
