The Jewels Are Complete

We’ve periodically released new Munzee Jewels to our collection over the past two years. Now, the final jewel is ready to make it’s appearance. Along with that jewel comes, of course, a badge. virtual_amethyst

We’re very happy to announce the newest and final jewel, the Amethyst. The Amethyst is a virtual jewel that is slightly different than others. The Amethyst CANNOT be captured using a blast cap. Also, unlike other virtual munzees, you have to be within 150 feet to capture the Amethyst. An Amethyst will be credited to accounts of users who subscribe to the August MunzPak.

P5PcrL8uTu9EDo9Mt5CAULnic_PZvrE2Ja3tUXAa-TgOf course with the completion of a Munzee type line, a badge should follow. We’re also releasing the Family Jewels badge today. To earn this badge, you must capture OR deploy at least one of each of the six types of jewels:

  • Diamond (available in the Munzee Store)
  • Ruby (limited availability)
  • Aquamarine (available in Munzee Store)
  • Topaz (only available in MunzPak)
  • Virtual Emerald (only available as part of Official Munzee Gardens)
  • Virtual Amethyst (currently only available in MunzPak)

Munzee 3.0 Beta Update

Thanks to everybody who tested Beta 1 of the Munzee 3.0 app. We are very excited about the next beta which will be released on Friday, July 31, 2015 at 10am MHQ time. Beta 2 will be active until the following Wednesday, August 5, 2015 at 10am MHQ time. After that, you’ll be unable to use Beta 2. We disable the beta so that we can lock down features and provide a better product.

If you had Munzee 3.0 Beta 1, you don’t have to do anything further. You will receive an email when we release Beta 2, and it will be available for you to download. If you DID NOT sign up for Beta 1, you can sign up now via the links below, and you’ll receive an email when we release Beta 2.

We are also going to re-open user feedback. Please only leave feedback that is relevant to this beta. We realize that many of you have suggestions for new features, but at this stage in the Beta process, we are looking for feedback regarding current features in the app. We’d especially love feedback on the filter section of the app. Please go to http://munzee.uservoice.com to leave feedback.

Here are just some of the changes that we have made since we released Beta 1.

  • Multi-User Login
  • Clan Details View
  • First Time Login Walkthrough
  • Munzee Name and Notes on the Same Page on Deploy
  • Button to remove the name and the notes of a munzee
  • Combined Items on Filters
  • Friends List
  • Showing User Titles
  • Hide Popup After 2 seconds
  • Fixed the constant Compass Calibration for iOS
  • Rate the App
  • Secure Socials can now get a new code
  • Help/Support Menu Item

Thanks, and grow the map!

Ms. Wheelchair USA Victory Garden

We’re very proud to have supported Skylar in her quest to claim the title of Ms. Wheelchair USA and congratulate her on her victory! We’ve created a Victory Garden above the University of North Texas (Skylar’s alma mater) in Denton, Texas. This garden consists of 1645 green virtual pins. These pins, which will be deployed by MHQ after purchase, go on sale today, July 23rd, at 10am. They are $3 USD each, and the proceeds will go towards supporting Skylar as she fulfills her duties as Ms. Wheelchair USA. There is NO PURCHASE LIMIT on this garden.

Accessibilty Map

For more information, and to purchase a pin, go to http://store.munzee.com/Victory-Garden.html before they run out!

Runzee Beta Testing

We are spreading our Munzee wings and truly taking our 2015 theme, “New Year, New Perspective”, to a new level. We’ve created a game that doesn’t rely on geolocation or the use of a camera. Runzee is a “Runner” game for mobile that you will allow you to collect Munzee pins in a whole new way.

You can watch a preview of gameplay here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JLaDJ8JkW-A

Sign up for beta can be done for iOS and Android at their respective links:

If you want to follow the development process, you can like our Facebook page or follow us on Twitter. The Runzee website will also be updated as more information becomes available.

Thanks!

(CZeeO Note: From 3pm MHQ time Monday, July 20th until 3pm MHQ time Tuesday, July 21st, prizes will be randomly awarded for captures (EXCLUDING socials) and deploys. We can’t thank the Munzee community enough for all of their support!)

Goodbye Mystery, Hello Mini!

We love all of our different types of Munzees, but sometimes, you just have to let go and make changes. In that spirit, we say out with the old and in with the new! It’s time for the mystery sticker to retire. Welcome the new and improved mini mystery sticker!

retiredmysteryEach sticker is a generic code to be used/shared by the purchaser. On deploy, the owner receives 25 points. Each capture will yield 10 cap on points for the owner while the player who captures will receive a mystery number of points from 5-50 in multiples of 5. The icon remains the same as the original mystery, and only the points and the size of the sticker have changed. Mystery fields will now include mini mystery stickers as well.

(Note: Rob wanted to help out the media team and designed an image for the event.)
