Catastrophic is right ! The site is doing all sorts of weird things. Some bits are obviously up, but others aren't and that's causing very odd behaviour.

They've updated again:

We weren't planning on spending our weekend battling server problems but we know how much you guys were going to be out there capturing so we burned the midnight oil. All systems are go at this point. Please use our support system if you see any errors we missed. We are truly sorry for the downtime!


Man, the stressful weekend they must have had. :(

Got this in an email today. Sounds interesting.

NFC (Near Field Communication) Munzees
If you have a newer Android device, you may have a new hardware feature included in your phone called NFC, or Near Field Communication. For those not familiar w/ NFC, it is a technology which allows radio communication between devies, or devices and 'tags' at a range of about 1-2 inches.

Watch a quick video


We decided after hitting one million captures to roll out NFC to the Munzee platform. Munzee is not replacing QR codes, but we feel that NFC will give users more options for creative hides. NFC tags are very thin stickers that can be used in some very unique applications. All a user has to do to deploy or capture a NFC Munzee is have an NFC enabled device and tap the Munzee NFC tag. It is that simple. Watch the example video above showing how it works. To make it easier to get started w/ NFC, we are selling 5 packs of NFC Munzees in our online store for $8.00 (shipping included!)

To our Munzers who use Apple devices, stay tuned for possible NFC support in future devices. With over 1 million NFC capapble devices selling a week, we couldn't wait until every phone supported it to introduce it to the Munzee platform. To learn more, check out the NFC Munzee Info Page.

There's a cache that uses this technology somewhere in the inner west of Sydney.

Good news is they have moved to bigger servers so hopefully the site will stand up to the increased demand. Hit 1,000,000 Captures last week! :D

I hit some today being at the Rocks then Central for work. 2 I had to scan and 4 virtuals. I really can't see the point of the virtuals, stand within 100 metres of a spot and score a find. A park then an ice cream shop. At Central I could score 2 virtuals without moving.

I have actually been half thinking about deleting the app and account, still in 2 minds. It gives me something to do occasionally when I am where there aren't any caches, but it is far down the list of things to keep me entertained.

Yep, a Virtual Munzee really seems pointless to me too. I enjoy the game, although I do prefer caching. I just wish there were a few more Munzees down my way (apart from mine..all sitting there unloved, waiting for FTF [-o< )

Virtuals exist for basically one reason only... some people are like to buy tons of them and it generates income for the the Devs to pay for servers and stuff. Personally, I dont see the point of Virtuals 99% of the time.

Virtuals are an odd duck - I don't really grok the point of using a lot of them - but have placed one just because I though it funny to place one close to where I used to live in Canada.

Post Re: Munzees!
I too await someone to hide a munzee in my area. i have been busy placing some,and a few people have found some of them,but ,like all these games, leeching is more popular than supporting the game and placing one.
given how easy it is to hide a munzee I'm surprised ther arent many more out there.

and you get the same score for hiding one as you do finding one, so you can increase your score without ever finding another person hide.

Oh, And I will enter the NFC crowd very soon. i am upgradeing from the bottonm of the barrel Android phone,to oneof the current leaders.
it is on its way, via the silk route, by camel i think, it is taking so long to arrive. 13 days so far i have waited, if i wait any longer the phone wilbe superseded befor ei even turn it on.

You need to come to Perth Pesky. The official centre of munzee madness in Oz. More than 2000 in Perth city environs.
