Celebrate the 8zees with New 8th Place Badges!

Though hardcore players usually strive to be first, there is now an advantage for earning 8th place! In honor of the #8zees and Munzee’s 8 weeks of 8th birthday 80s throwback celebrations, we’re introducing the 8th place leaderboard badges today at 10:00 MHQ time!

There will now be three new badges that players can earn for earning 8th place on the three daily leaderboards. These badges are not retroactive, but you’ll be able to earn them starting today! That means if you end the day in 8th place on the Virtual, Physical, or Overall Daily Leaderboard, you’ll be able to earn these respective badges:

Cur8or– Earn 8th place on the Virtual Daily Leaderboard

Deb8or– Earn 8th place on the Physical Daily Leaderboard

InfiniZee– Earn 8th place on the Overall Daily Leaderboard

Whoever said first place is best clearly never celebrated the 8zees! Are you ready to earn some new badges?

Munzee on!

Big Map Plans for the InternationElles Munzee!

It’s July, which means it’s time for Louise and the InternationElles to make their pedaled protest to demonstrate the capability of women in cycling! In fact, today marks their very first day of riding! And with Freeze Tag sponsoring these fierce females and Rob joining Louise in France, we thought we’d take you along for the ride!

InternationElles Munzee

As Louise cycles the entire route of the Tour de France with the InternationElles one day before the men, Rob will be driving a support van and deploying in France. Rob and Louise will both be deploying virtuals and physicals throughout the Tour de France route, so we decided to make them special! Introducing the InternationElles Munzee icons!

Similar to the Whomp Canada and Wayward Nation munzees, these unique pins will feature special icons. Any greenie or virtual deployed by the InternationElles Munzee account will become the beautiful icons pictured above!


  • Capture: Between 19-78, random
  • CapOn/Deploy: N/A

You can access the InternationElles pins under the Tourism filter. Although the InternationElle Munzees will only be available in France, these special pins will be permanently on the map! So if you’re planning a trip to France, be sure to check out a portion of the Tour de France route and cap an InternationElle Munzee!

You will be able to view all deploys as they start going live here:


Players will earn the following badge for capturing one InternationElles Munzee of any type:

Following Fierce Females

This will be a fun way to track Louise’s progress as she accomplishes great things for female athletes along with the InternationElles. We’re happy to share that our Flat Lou donations, pulled from Flat Lou sales, have covered the costs of van and helmet stickers! Thank you to all who purchased a Flat Lou in support of our cyclist wonder!

You can keep up with Louise and the InternationElles by following them on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter! These ladies are accomplishing monumental things!

Go Louise, and Munzee on!

The full InternationElles team are together and ready to ride for equality! (image via internationelles, Instagram)

Celebrate the Twelve Days of Christmas with Munzee!


Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from Team Munzee! It’s the Holidays, a time of giving, friendship, and fun. For Christmas 2013, we’re celebrating the “Twelve Days of Christmas” with our players!

One set of icons will be added to the map each day (MHQ time) through the entire 12 days of Christmas. The times will not be announced, it’s a surprise! Each icon will bounce around the map until December 31st, 1500 MHQ.  Here’s a breakdown of the icons you’ll see loading to the map each day:


Special icon captures will earn 20 points, and the owner will receive a residual 10 points for hosting the icon. When the icon is capped by one player it bounces to another location somewhere in the world! Players may find a special present under their “Badges” should they capture at least six different Special icons during the Twelve Days of Christmas!

From December 13th-25th of the Twelve Days of Christmas, every capture or deploy is eligible for a unique present! These prizes will be selected at random from player activity during the Munzee Christmas Celebration! Some of the special prizes you can win are:  the new 20,000 mah external battery packs available in the Munzee store, the new FitBit Force, Pebble Watch, and a Garmin GPS unit.

If that isn’t incentive enough to “grow the map” this holiday season, here’s something you might like: between December 15th and December 24th, we’ll randomly award Munzee presents for CAPTURES OR DEPLOYS. Every player will have the chance to win Diamonds, Virtuals, Mystery Virtuals, Motels, and Socials.  The more you play, the more chances you have to win!

Additionally, Santa comes early on December 24th, as we’ll be giving away 50 one year premium Munzee memberships!

Tis’ the Season to celebrate and give.  This December, we’re celebrating our players, giving away some awesome Christmas presents, and wishing you all a happy new year to come!
