A Munzee card Munzee is a location based game that has appeared as a 'spin-off' from geocaching. Although it's relatively new, it seems to be gaining some traction. At the time of posting, there were almost 19,000 Munzees deployed, and almost 10,000 registered players worldwide. For those of you who haven't already come across it, describe the game as 'a real world scavenger hunt game where items are found in the real world and captured using your smartphone. You then level up and gain rank based on your score. Points are obtained by capturing other people's munzees or when your deployed munzees are captured by someone else.' We've captured a few and hidden a few  - and it's definitely got some potential as a 'quick-fire' alternative to geocaching. I can see the appeal of it, especially in an urban environment - without a container to hide or get muggled, it opens up lots of new opportunities. You do need a smart phone to be able to play, but if you own one, it certainly embodies paperless caching! The founders seem to be continually developing the product, having recently added some new security features,  updated web maps, email notifications as well as opportunities for businesses to get involved. Check it out, and let us know what you think!

  • I had a bit of fun putting out a few Munzees in Wodonga when they first started but the excitement soon wore off because I prefer the “use a GPS to find a container” scenario. Using a smartphone to find a label just doesn’t do anything for me. But I can see how it might appeal to the young tech-savvy urban crowd.
