Places munzees are virtual game pieces to be positioned at locations that may be of interest all around the world. These munzees can be captured once per MHQ day by other players. You do not have to wait 24 hours before you can re-cap it, e.g. you can capture it at 11:30 MHQ time on Monday and 9:21 MHQ time on Tuesday. YOU ARE NOT ABLE TO CAPTURE YOUR OWN POI. The capture mulligan WILL NOT work to fix a POI capture streak.
The more detail you provide in the notes on your munzee, the quicker it can be approved. If there is a website for the location please update the notes and include it. This is particularly important for the Drinks Depot and Virtual Garden places.

There are currently twenty-seven types of Places Munzees available to players:

Places Munzees are NOT blastable.
Players can deploy their Places munzee from the online Munzee map. Only one Places munzee may be deployed at each location (excluding Beach), so you may have to get creative with where you deploy these. Once you deploy the munzee it will then be sent to an MHQ staff member for approval. Places deploys will be approved within 24-48 hours, but these are manually approved, so please be patient. Once your deploy is approved or denied you’ll receive an email notification.
Capture: 20, except Virtual Garden Places, which give 10
Cap On: 10

- When deploying your Places munzee look for a designated icon on Google Maps. This makes the approval process much easier.
- Deploy your Places munzee at entrances and other areas that are easily accessible for other players. For example, don't deploy your Sports Stadium Places munzee in the middle of the field.
- If your Places munzee deploy is declined, you will receive a brief explanation as to why in the followup email.
- Even if your location was available at the time of deployment it may be taken by another player who selected that location before you.
