Introducing the Fire Pouch Creature Munzee!

UPDATE: Due to player requests we have increased the point values to the three Tuli levels. We have also decreased the amount of time the Tuli will take to bounce from 12 hours to 6 hours. Changes are listed below in red. Thank you all for your input! 

In November we released the final member of the Classical Mythological Munzees, the Cyclops Mythological Munzee. Now we’re proud to announce a new era – the Pouch Creatures. The first Pouch Creature being released is the Tuli Pouch Creature Munzee.

The Pouch Creatures are based on items from one of our sister apps, WallaBee. These creatures, while similar to Mythological Munzees in many respects, have some different qualities. The Tuli Pouch Creature Munzee will bounce on Greenies and Fire Mystery Munzees every 6 hours or when capped. After 25 captures, however, the Tuli Pouch Creature Munzee will begin to level up.

To level up, a daily capture streak must be attained:

  • Level 1: 0-3 Consecutive Days of Capture
  • Level 2: 3-7 Consecutive Days of Capture
  • Level 3: >7 Consecutive Days of Capture

When the streak is broken, the Fire Pouch Creature will revert to Level 1 and the leveling process begins again.

By leveling up a Tuli Pouch Creature Munzee, the points for the owner, capper, and host owner will increase:

Deploy: 100 points

Capture/CapOn

  • Tuli (Level 1)
    • Capture: 50 points
    • CapOn: 50 Points
    • CapOn (Host Owner): 50 points
  • Tulimber (Level 2)
    • Capture: 75 points
    • CapOn: 75 Points
    • CapOn (Host Owner): 75 points
  • Tulinferno (Level 3)
    • Capture: 125 points
    • CapOn: 125 points
    • CapOn (Host Owner): 125 points

For deploying a Tuli Pouch Creature Munzee, you will earn a deploy badge:

There are also three badges (nine total) for capturing each level of the Tuli Pouch Creature Munzee. Here are the first for each level:

There will be 1800 Tuli Pouch Creature Munzees available for $20 in the Munzee Online Store TOMORROW (Friday, February 23rd) at 10:00 MHQ time. These will be sold on a first come, first served basis, and there is a limit of 1 per account.

That’s not all, though. We will also have a limited number of each of the previous Mythological Munzees available as well. If you’ve missed previous ownership opportunities or are a new player who wants to get in on the Mythological Munzee action, this is your chance! As always, you can only own one of each type of Mythological Munzee.

We hope you enjoy the Tuli Pouch Creature Munzee!

Munzee on!

Announcing Mystery Munzee Capture and Deploy Badges!

The game is afoot! We’re excited to announce new badges for capturing and deploying Mystery and Mini Mystery Munzees.

Continuing the Deploy line started with the Watson and Holmes badges, you can now earn two new badges featuring some of Sherlock’s more colorful characters.

We have also released an all new line of badges for capturing Mystery and Mini Mystery Munzees. A detective must use all of his tools to his advantage if he hopes to solve the Mystery!

These badges won’t be easy to come by, but they are retroactive, so any of your past mystery solving will count toward these. The badges are now live and available to earn.

In celebration of those masterful mysteries, for a limited time you can purchase 5 Mini Mystery Munzees for $5 (regularly $7.50) in the Munzee Online Store. The sale will run until Sunday at 15:00 MHQ time so don’t tarry too long! Check them out HERE!

Good luck in your adventures and Munzee on!

Player of the Week: Frank Profitt (munzeeprof)

As Munzee has grown over the years, the game has evolved in so many more ways than any of the co-founders could have imagined. We’ve certainly had our fair share of growing pains, but in its essence Munzee has tried to stick to its core goal of getting people out into the world. No one knows this better than those players who have been with us since the beginning. This week’s Player of the Week is Frank Profitt (munzeeprof).

Who are you?
I am Frank Profitt; I have several player names depending on the game I play: munzeeprof, WallaBeeprof, geoprof123, and strutprof. As so you can, I love geolocation games. <3

Where in the world do you live?
I love in Georgetown, Kentucky along I75 just north of Lexington.

How long have you played Munzee?
I started on 26 July 2011 🙂

How did you find Munzee?
I heard about Munzee on the GeoGearheads podcast, so I have DarrylW4 to thank for this madness. ;P

What do you most enjoy about Munzee?
Traveling to big events and meeting other players. 🙂 Also, having the virtuals so that I have something to do on bad weather days. 🙂

What is on your wish list?
I would love to see the historical ones expanded into other states besides Texas, but in a more ordered way. I think a great way to do this would be to us the historical markers that are along the roads. Here in Kentucky, there are over 2500 of these markers in the states, and they are managed by the Kentucky Historical Society which has a detail list of them by county.

Tell us about yourself!
I retired this spring from Toyota where I was a maintenance person for 25 years. I also served in the Navy as an electrician for 6 years and got to go around the world. I was stationed in several states and visited a lot of others. I guess this has fueled my desire to travel and to see what’s around the next corner.

Other hobbies include:
Besides playing geolocation games, I collect Hard Rock Cafe pins and have visited over 50 cafes. I also collect Hot Wheels and attend national events with other local collectors.

Any last words?
I have been building up my area and now have over 600 virtuals surrounding the Toyota plant. You are welcome to drop virtuals in between an of mine and to make a slight detour when you are traveling on I-75 to capture some of them. With GeoWoodstock coming up in Cincinnati this summer, there are sure to be lots of Munzee players coming through here. 🙂 Hope to see many of you at the Munzee events held then and other places. 🙂 Thanks to all the people who nominated me!!

munzeeprof also included some socials, so cap away!

Fall In Love With The Cherub AlternaMyth!

It’s Valentine’s Day and love is in the air! What better day than today to introduce you all to our new AlternaMyth friend: The Cherub! Watch out for that arrow, unless you’re looking for love that is!

As with the other AlternaMyths these Mythological Munzees are deployed on behalf of our HQ staff’s accounts, thus super rare. You’ll get 200 points for capping the Cherub. Owners of the host munzee will also earn double the points of the Cherub’s earthbound cousin the Faun.

As the Faun’s cousin this cute cloud soarer is attracted to Earth Mystery Munzees, but Cherubs will also hover to all colors of Virtual Munzees, Mystery Virtual Munzees, and MVMs as well as Air Mystery Munzees every 12 hours or when captured.

Cherubs are sure to be busy on Valentine’s Day this year, but luckily you can slow one down with a Virtual Munzee Magnet! You can add Virtual Magnets to any color of MVM and they will attract Cherub, Pegasus, and Fire Pegasus munzees.

Capturing a Cherub will also count towards the Myth Collector badges so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for those friendly flyers.

Good luck on your journey and Happy Valentine’s Day!

Announcing Secret Admirer Specials!

Love is in the air and it seems you all have a secret admirer or two! Who could it possibly be? The only way to find out is to collect their heart pieces and reveal your true love!

2,800 Secret Admirer Specials will be on the map from 00:01 MHQ time on Tuesday, February 13th through Sunday, February 18th at 23:59. There will be a total of 4 heart pieces (700 of each on the map) and by collecting at least one of each corresponding piece (each side of the heart) you’ll earn a badge for that set.

Since it’s mystery as to who these secret admirers could be, these specials will work a bit differently. The Secret Admirer Specials will bounce on MVMs, Mysteries, Mini Mysteries, and Greenies every 6 hours or when capped. Since these specials bounce on both physical and virtual game pieces, both Munzee Magnets and Virtual Magnets will attract these icons.

Points:

  • Capture – 28
  • CapOn for host owners – 14

Per usual these will also count toward the Special Hunter badge line and you can cap them on your own munzees so be sure to cap as many as you can!

We hope this season is full of love- even if it’s just the love of the game! Happy Valentine’s Day and enjoy this lovely new special. Munzee on!

Player of the Week: Ian Graves (Belboz)

As Munzee has grown over the years, the game has evolved in so many more ways than any of the co-founders could have imagined. We’ve certainly had our fair share of growing pains, but in its essence Munzee has tried to stick to its core goal of getting people out into the world. No one knows this better than those players who have been with us since the beginning. This week’s Player of the Week is Ian Graves (Belboz).

Who are you?
I’m Ian Graves, aka Belboz. In case you are wondering, Belboz is a character in a couple of interactive fiction games I played when I was a teenager.

Where in the world do you live?
Adelaide, South Australia, about a 10 minute drive north of the CBD and Adelaide Oval.

How long have you played Munzee?
Since October 23, 2015.

How did you find Munzee?
I saw a post on Facebook in a Fitbit group, downloaded the app, and walked to a local park to find my first munzee. That’s me in the photo lying on the ground about to capture my first munzee!

What do you most enjoy about Munzee?
Chasing myths, deploying physical munzees, Clan Wars, events, badges, Munzee Physical League (MPL). And more generally, the fact that there are so many ways to play Munzee, so there is a scope for all players from beginners to high level players to pick a goal and chase it.

What is on your wish list?
Aside from visiting some of the big Munzee cities, I have heaps of things on my wish list — the top 3 are:

  1. More Nomads and the ability to capture them on your own munzee.
  2. The ability to link a generic to a damaged or missing munzee IF it is hosting a bouncing special and IF the owner is dormant or inactive.
  3. More badges for deploying physical munzees, and make them challenging, say around 10% of the corresponding capture badges (i.e. deploy 1250 non-blastable Jewels).

Tell us about yourself!
I’ve been married for 20 years (yay!), and have a 15-year-old son and 10-year-old daughter. Most of our family is in Tasmania, and I’ve been in Adelaide for just over half of my life. I work in Defence R&D which sees me frequently in Canberra. I have an honours degree in Maths and have worked in a number of fields, including operations analysis, biometrics, and risk management.

Other hobbies include:
Interactive fiction, model trains, watching sport.

Any last words?
Thank you to whoever nominated me; it is appreciated. Also, a big thank you MHQ for continuing to evolve the game. And, finally, to everyone reading, I encourage you all to play your own way (an join the MPL)!

Belboz also included some socials, so cap away!

Introducing the AlternaMyth Wrangler Badge!

After the release of both the Myth Wrangler and the Classical Myth Wrangler badges it was only a matter of time until the AlternaMyths got their turn in the crosshairs!

We’re excited to announce that you’ll soon be able to earn the AlternaMyth Wrangler badge for capturing all four AlternaMyths in a single day!

The Rainbow Unicorn, Gnome Leprechaun, Ice Dragon and Sasquatch Yeti are all hard enough to find on their own, but will you be lucky enough to cap them all in one day? Since these Alternative Versions of the first four Mythological Munzees are exclusively deployed by MHQ, this badge is only for the most committed of Myth hunters.

You’ll want to do everything you can to increase your odds, so remember to utilize Munzee Magnets and Elemental Munzees. 

Please note that regular first generation Myths, Classical Myths, or Classical AlternaMyths will not count toward this badge. Unlike the original Myth Wrangler this badge IS NOT retroactive though. The badge will begin awarding at 00:01 MHQ time on Thursday, February 8th.

This one won’t be easy to get, but we believe in you! Happy hunting and Munzee on!

Premium Members to Receive Another Golden Carrot Munzee!

When we launched the Farm Set of Evolution Munzees in September 2016, Premium Members were awarded a special Golden Carrot Evolution Munzee. That was the only time that Golden Carrots have been awarded, and we thought it was time to change that!

On Thursday, February 8th at 10:00 MHQ time, all Premium Members will receive another Gold Carrot Munzee. As a reminder, the Golden Carrot is a credit that is applied to a generic. This will only be a convert option for uncapped greenies in the first 24 hours after deploy or for never deployed undeploys. When deployed it will grow just like the others, reaching golden carrot status in it’s final stage. You must be a Premium Member when the awarding takes place to receive one.

Not a Premium Member yet, or is your Premium Membership about to expire? You still have time! From now until 23:59 MHQ time tomorrow (February 7th), Premium Memberships are $5 off in the Munzee Online Store!

We hope you enjoy your new Golden Carrot Munzees!

Munzee on!
