There’s Gnome Way You Wanna Miss out on This!

This year, we continued two traditions started in 2019: Monthly Streak Badges in the form of Exercise Resolutions, and a set of Monthly Rare Specials, in the form of 20/20 Vision Munzees. We also started a new tradition of Monthly POBs in the form of Funfinity Stones, which have become beloved characters in the game.

For 2021 we wanted to streamline things by linking all 3 together with a common theme!

Keeping this change in mind, we wanted to make sure we still incorporated the things that made each of them special.

  • For Monthly Streak Badges, it was all about staying healthy by maintaining good habits, just like maintaining your streak.
  • For Monthly Rare Specials, we wanted an ongoing collection that built up throughout the year centered around a central theme.
  • For Monthly POBs, we wanted a unified set of characters that felt like a family.

So what’s health-focused, fits within a central theme, and comes in a lot of varieties? Well garden gnomes playing sports obviously! 2020 was a slow year for sports and traveling (even the Olympic Games got pushed back!) so we’re sending garden gnomes on the road to compete for gold! We’re excited to announce Sporty Garden GnomesΒ are coming in 2021!

We’re not releasing all of the details just yet, but we did want to give everyone a heads up to start your capture streaks on January 1st!

Garden Gnomes

As usual you’ll want to capture at least one munzee* each day for the entire month to earn the reward. If you can make it through the whole month you’ll be awarded a badge and special item themed to that month’s activity! We’ll release more information on this special item and on how Monthly Rare Specials and Monthly POBs will be incorporated once we’re back in the office, but for now, here’s a sneak peek into what we have planned!

Please give a warm welcome to January’s Ice Hockey Gnome!

We know travel and sports are heavily limited right now, but we hope as you work towards this capture streak you can live vicariously through these charming gnomes! Perhaps you can find a way to watch or play your favorite sport** at home! We’re all in this together and if nothing else it will help you get one step closer to the yearlong capture and deploy streak badges. We’ll have a different gnome badge design each month, but try and keep up with your streak throughout the year! We believe in you!

We hope you’re excited to meet each month’s gnome and perhaps take home one of your own! Munzee on!

* In order to encourage active gameplay we will not count Social Munzees for these capture streaks. If you know you’ll be in an area without munzees plan ahead!Β
