NFC Munzee Conversion

As the launch of Munzee 4.0 gets closer, we have an update regarding the removal of the Near Field Communication (NFC) Munzee type.  All undeployed NFC Munzees are currently being archived and all deployed NFC Munzees are being converted to white Virtual Munzees.

Please note that players have not had the ability to deploy NFC Munzees for many years, but this next step will remove the type entirely from the map. Although NFC Munzees were technically a physical type, the GPS coordinates attached to the NFCs will be where the newly converted Virtuals are located. Additionally, this also includes a substantial point update from what NFCs used to be worth. For those that have captured NFC Munzees in the past your capture count will remain in tact and you’ll still be able to see the special icon under the achievements tab.
UPDATE: This newly deployed virtual is available to be captured by anyone who previously capped the NFC. It is a brand new deploy.

Deploy Points:
5 —> 55

Capture/CapOn Points:
5 —> 70 points split with a minimum of 10
3 —>     *             *              *              *

We appreciate the player support for this type, but unfortunately NFC technology is not easily accessible for developers on all platforms so it’s time to move on. We promise the release of 4.0 is very close, so once again thank you for your patience during all of these changes. Remember this is just the start, we have some really big plans ahead!

Munzee on!

Virtual Point Update and Conversion! New Virtual Colors!

In the next phase of point updates, we have some big news regarding Virtual Munzees. As you may have noticed there has been a change to the map! Moving forward all MVM, Mystery Virtuals, and regular Virtuals have all been converted into a single new “Virtual” type. With this conversion comes a point update as well!

All Virtual types will now be worth the following moving forward, not retroactive:

  • Deploy = 55 points
  • Capture = between 10 & 70 points
  • CapOn = split points with Capture  (Ex: if 30 for Cap, 40 for CapOn, etc.)

Our hope is that the conversion of Virtuals will make it easier for new players as they begin their Munzee adventure. Although the point increase from Mystery Virtuals and MVMs to the new type is not huge, the jump for the original virtual points is! All of the oldest virtual gardens in the world just received a MAJOR upgrade! Please note that alongside the Virtual conversion, the Virtual Quiz Munzee is no more. All Virtual Quizzes have been converted to the new type as well.


Alongside the Virtual Conversion we have also expanded the number of Virtual Color Credits! Now you can bring an entirely new level of detail into your Virtual Gardens with more than 60 colors of any shade you might need! Bring out those baby blues with Cornflower! Follow the yellow brick road with Goldenrod! Get a little cheesy with Macaroni and Cheese! If you can dream it, we can color it!

Remember, Virtual Color Credits can be purchased in the Freeze Tag Online Store for $0.50 and that credit can then be used in-app or online to choose from the wide variety of colors. Did you know there are several Facebook groups dedicated to building Virtual Gardens all over the world? Kjasdad even started a master spreadsheet to track all the Gardens!

We know change can be a bit scary, but we hope you can all embrace the conversion and understand the larger end goal of making this game we love more comprehensive to new players. Thank you all for your support throughout the 4.0 launch process. Good luck and go build those Gardens!

Munzee on!


****Please note: due to this point increase and conversion there has been a slight increase in the price of the new Virtual type. Previously MVMs were $4.50, but that price has now increased to $5.

Announcing The Removal of Certain Munzee Types

As we move closer to the release of Munzee 4.0 some decisions have been made regarding certain features of the app and gameplay. In order to offer a more comprehensive gameplay experience we will be removing certain Munzee types leading up to the release of the new version. We understand that some of these types are liked in the Munzee community, but by removing them we can enhance the gameplay experience for both new and old users, as well as maintaining accountability on all munzee types.

Business Munzees:
Alongside the launch of version 4.0 all Business Munzees will be archived. The development process is still ongoing for the new version, so no firm date has been set. The Business Munzee program was halted years ago and with no more growth it makes more sense to move on and remove this type from active gameplay. With only 208 deployed, and many of these munzees inside businesses, it is easier to just remove them from the map rather than convert them.

Business Munzee

NFC Munzees:
Although we removed the ability for players to deploy NFC munzees years ago, we will be removing them all together with the launch of 4.0. Unfortunately the technology for Near-Field Communication (NFC) is not easily accessible for developers on all platforms, so we will be moving on from the type. All NFC munzees will be converted to a different type around the launch of the new app, but more details regarding this specific change will be available soon.

Accessible & Quiz Munzees:
Beginning Friday September 28 at 00:01 MHQ players will not be able to deploy any new Accessible, Quiz Munzees or Virtual Quiz Munzees. Although these types offer unique gameplay experiences, many have been misused from their original concept and it has proven too difficult to enforce regulations on them. When the new version of the app is launched all Accessible and Quiz Munzees will be converted to Greenies. Virtual Quiz Munzees will be converted to virtuals, but similar to the NFC conversion there will be more information regarding that change soon.

Although all of these types may be brought back in some form in the future, there are currently no plans to do so.

Greenie Point Increases:
There is a bright side to the conversion of Quiz and Accessible Munzees though. When 4.0 launches an increase in Greenie points will also occur. Currently Accessibility and Quiz Munzees have a CapOn value of three points, but when converted to new Greenies that value will increase to 11 points. Remember, these types will not be archived, simply converted so if you have deployed any of these they will still be available for capture.

New Points:
Deploy: 18 Points
Capture: 20 Points
CapOn: 11 Points

Thank you all for your understanding. For years we have experimented with many different munzee types and not all of those have been successful. As we continue to innovate the game we look forward to your open-mindedness regarding new and exciting types.

We’re just as excited for the launch of 4.0 as you all are, but remember this is just the stepping stone to all sorts of grand ideas! We can’t wait to share them with you. Munzee on!

Now Accepting Munzee 4.0 Beta Testing Applications!


Howdy Munzeers!

We have been avidly working on the latest version of Munzee and want to get your feedback. To ensure that this is the best experience for all of you, we’re doing things a bit differently than we have in the past.

We invite you to participate in a closed beta to provide us feedback and help us improve the app before we launch to the public. We have a very limited number of spots to accept testers. Please note that although you may have tested a version of the Munzee app in the past, that does not lock your spot on this beta test.

Please sign up using this Google Form to be entered into the random lottery for our beta groups. We will contact you if you have been selected. This application form will close on Tuesday September 4, 2018.

We look forward to hearing your feedback and we’re excited for more news regarding the worldwide release soon!

Good luck and Munzee on!

Player of the Week: Cleo Nordquist (QueenofDNile)

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 Cleo Nordquist (QueenofDNile).

Who are you?
I answer to several monikers; Chilly to my family, Queen to my caching friends, QueenofD’Nile to the Munzee community, and just plain Cleo Nordquist to the rest of the world! My avatar and photo stand in is known an QoD!

Where in the world do you live?
I live in Lindale, TX, which is nestled in the Piney Woods of East Texas.

How long have you played Munzee?
I signed up in March of 2012 and started capping the minimal munzees deployed in my hometown area for the next year. I became a Premium Member in July 2013 and started to deploy! The next month, BACON came to the map, and my addiction became incurable!

How did you find Munzee?
I first found out about Munzee at the 2012 Texas Challenge where Munzee has a cool LEGO QR Code set up. Although I couldn’t get my smart phone to act very smart that day and let me scan it, I was able to sign up.

What do you most enjoy about Munzee?
The people I have met. Especially, my red-headed Munzee enabler! I enjoy meeting up with fell Munzers in order to walk trails and “Grow the Map”. The addition of events has made gathering together and socializing even easier and more fun. It has “forced” me to drive so many miles in the last year that I wore out a set of tires all because there might be a special, badge, or icon just a “short” drive down the road.

What is on your wish list?

  1. We have started a beautiful Virtual Munzee Rose in Tyler, TX that we are hoping to complete before March of 2017. It has been placed in an area where all 577 will be hand capable.

  2. I would love to see a proximity limit created so that a munzee cannot be placed in Maintenance Mode unless the player is near the Munzee (300 feet). On that same note, it would be nice if there was a time delay to putting a munzee in Maintenance Mode by two players. The logs need to be at least 24 hours apart before the icon goes yellow.
  3. The creation of cute and kid-friendly skins that I could give my niblings to use for deploying. They love the doggie ones and would love some more fun skins. I am thinking Space Aliens, robots, insects, etc.

Tell us about yourself!
A short history of my life – I was born in Alaska, adopted, and moved to Minnesota. I spent a few years working as a missionary in Mexico, and now I live in Texas! I have a BA in History, which means I know enough about history to get into many arguments with non-history majors! I have 2 furry babies, aka cats, Calliope and Obsidian, both of whom get mad at me when I leave them for long periods in order to go caching and Munzeeing.

Other hobbies include:
When I am not spending time with family and friends, I am either crocheting, painting, coloring, caching, reading, or playing WallaBee.

Any last words?
Dum spiro, spero. I wish to thank whoever nominated me, as I believe you deserve this honor more, and I am humbly honored!

QueenofDNile has included some socials, so cap away!

The Munzee 2017 Theme

In 2017 Team Munzee has big plans that will test our abilities. We are going to spread the word about Munzee far and wide.

Our goal is simple: Everyone. Everywhere.

Our worldwide game gets bigger every day, so we want to include new players and areas as well as continue to grow our current communities. We can’t do it alone, though! With the help of our passionate players, we know even more people worldwide will embrace our game in the year to come.

To kick off the new year we’ve taken some of the photos our Munzee players have uploaded while playing and posted them into this collage of the world. Our game is worldwide in both places and people and 2017 will take that all to the next level.

Visit to check out this interactive collage. Just zoom in with your computer’s mouse wheel to see photos taken from players like YOU! You can also check out an excerpt of the Letter From The President, see some of 2016’s gameplay statistics, and follow links to other Year In Review blog posts.

Over the next 12 months, we have all sorts of exciting stuff planned, and we want you involved every step of the way. Use the hashtags #MunzEE and #E1EW to let us know how you embrace “Everyone. Everywhere.” all year long.

Happy New Year and cheers to everyone, everywhere!

Flat Robs Are Out for the Holidays!

It’s been a whirlwind of a year, and it’s hard to believe that 2016 is almost gone. To end Christmas events and start the new year off right, Flat Robs will be making a lengthy appearance.

From now (December 22nd at 12:00 MHQ time) until January 2nd at 23:59, Flat Robs will be on the map!

We’ve still got a few bits of fun up our sleeves for the end of the year, but we’re starting with this. Stay tuned for more info on what’s to come!

Have fun, and Munzee on!

That’s right it’s Double Point Days for End Of March!

Not all players can enjoy double points on weekends. *See DPD announcement for this weekend on greens and emeralds at the bottom of a previous blog post* Not all players can enjoy double points on weekdays. The world is big and there is never a perfect time for everyone in our worldwide community. This blog post is going out many hours later than our typical posts during the MHQ workday for that reason. *Hello to our players Down Under who may be currently awake and playing, and sweet dreams to those in Europe who may be resting!*

The purpose of this post is to inform you of an upcoming special occasion. Double Point Days! Let’s end March by celebrating the players who put in time to do battle each month with their Munzee clan. From March 29th 00:01 through March 31st 23:59 MHQ time (UTC -5) all clan weapons will be double points. This includes deploy, capture, and cap on points for the 4 weapon types. The Mace, Longsword, Battle Axe, and The Hammer.

We hope you’ve enjoyed March as much as we have (and it’s only halfway through). Thank you to our players who faithfully compete in clan battles every month. If you have a stockpile of weapons, NOW is the time to prepare them for deploy! If you’ve never joined a Munzee clan, the trading window opens April 1st at 00:01 for the April battle.
