UPDATE: New Year’s Resolutions

UPDATE: New Year’s Resolutions can be found here. We will be requesting updates monthly and posting them on the Resolutions page!

 

This year, the members of Team Munzee were asked to come up with at least one New Year’s Resolution. It could be work-related or personal, and they were told it would be posted on the Munzee website to be visible and updated throughout the year. Some of the resolutions include:

  • Scott: “Run 4 days a week so that I can run in the 2016 Dallas Marathon.”
  • Louise: “I would…love  to become a Guinness World Record holder..”
  • Daniel F.: “I think my goal is to lose 4 kg of body weight. Nothing fancy, but healthy.”

We don’t want to do it alone, though! We want to know what your resolutions are and have you join us in being accountable for them. Send your resolutions to [email protected] with the subject “New Year’s Resolution”. We’ll add them to the list of our resolutions on the Munzee website and allow you to update them as well!

We’ll be posting the link to the resolutions page next Monday (January 4, 2016)!

Make Us A Munzee Competition Finalists!

The Munzee team was overwhelmed with the response to the “Make Us A Munzee” competition! We had over 600 entries, and it was tough to narrow them down to five finalists. Below are the descriptions of the finalists and a link to vote for your favorite. Voting will close on Wednesday, December 30th at 17:00 MHQ time. The winner will be contacted shortly following then to make their idea become reality! Also, please remember that details of these Munzees is subject to change, but the overall idea will remain intact. The text below is what was submitted by the player. Team Munzee will work with the winner to determine exact logistics after it is chosen.

Finalists

  • The Joker (Rubik80) – “A physical munzee that rewards the capper with 100 points or penalises them with minus 50 points. Limited to one per premium member per membership, like a Premium Munzee. The trick is when they lose the 50 points, they go to the munzee owner.”
  • The Pioneer (d-n) – “Can be only deployed in areas with no other munzees in certain radius (for example 1/2 mile). Cap on points residual into 50. Advantages -Support for starting the game in areas with no munzees.”
  • The Prankster (Rosemark) – “This will be a virtual Munzee. It will have 5 location Pins on the Map, but only 1 will be real. To deploy The owner will pick a location and deploy just like a regular Virtual, and the computer will create 4 more locations on the map within a 1 mile radius of the deployed location. Only one of these pins will be the real location of the Munzee. When a player attempts to cap the Munzee, they will not know which pin is real. If they pick the wrong one it will tell them “No Joy” and they will have to go to one of the 4 other locations until they find the correct one. Once they find the real one, they will receive the points earned, and a Badge for successfully capturing a Prankster Munzee. The scoring should reduce for each miss. Perhaps 50 points if they get it right the 1st time, 40 if 2nd, 30 if 3rd , 20 if 4th and 10 if last. Cap on points to owner could be like 10. Each time the Prankster is captured, a new correct location is randomly selected by the computer, so the correct pin is different each time capped.”
  • The Wormhole (kulbago) – “This Munzee will randomly tunnel to another munzee that is over 100 miles from its deployed location. Upon capturing this munzee, you get points just as though you were at the location at the other end f the wormhole. Once captured it will re-tunnel to another randomly selected munzee somewhere else in the world. Each wormhole munzee can only be captured once per day per player. (ie. you can’t stand there and keep capturing Munzees that are far away) If you wanted to make it more interesting you could make different “size” wormhole munzees. Small would tunnel to 100 miles away, medium say 250 miles, and large would have to find a munzee more than 500 miles away to connect to.”
  • The Rock-Paper-Scissors (2dld26) – “On deploy, the deployer picks it to be Rock, Paper or Scissors. The icon shows RPS so as not to identify what it is. When capture, the capturer has to choose Rock, Paper or Scissors. If they beat the deployer, then capturer gets 20 points and the deployer gets 10 points. If the capturer loses, then the capturer gets 10 points and the deployer gets 20 points. If they choose the same, then they each get 15 points. Potential badges: -Badges for winning 1, 25, 50 matches (bronze, silver, gold) -Badge for winning once against all three types: rock, paper and scissors Clarification: rock beats scissors beats paper beats rock.”

Christmas Parties Are In Full Swing!

We’re halfway through the month of December, and the Munzee Christmas Parties are in full swing! Rob, Matt, Louise, Daniel Hammock, and Daniel Fischer have all attended events already this month! Matt will also be attending the Metro Vancouver Post Holiday Cap’ing event on December 27th, and he’s excited!

In less than two weeks, 1140 players have capped the Father Christmas special, and we have another 17 events happening worldwide in the next 7 days! We can’t wait to see the outcome of them! Also, if you haven’t checked it out yet, the Dodgy Jumper gallery is live! We’re adding more images as we get them, so check it out!

These events have given us some crazy capture numbers, too! Matt stopped by the office around 3PM MHQ time on Saturday, and there were over 103,000 captures! We want to thank everyone who has hosted and/or attended an event for growing the game!

It’s Beginning to Feel A Lot Like Christmas…Kind Of

RobTreeIt’s December, and we’re getting into the Christmas spirit here at MHQ. We’ve got a slight problem, though. We’ve got two Christmas trees with no ornaments, and we need your help! If you’d like to participate, download this ornament template, fill it in with your design, and email it back to us! We’ll print them out, and on December 21st, we’ll show off our decorated trees!

Please email your completed designs you [email protected] with the subject “Christmas Tree Ornaments” so we can keep track of them all!

The Christmas Parties Are Beginning!

So here we are, it’s December! The Munzee Christmas Parties start tomorrow. We are very excited about everything planned. What a fantastic Munzee Community we have. There are 24 events just in the next 7 days! Don’t forget to check the calendar at https://calendar.munzee.com/ to see if there is one near you! If there isn’t, don’t worry, it’s not too late to host one yourself. Add it to the calendar or contact me directly at [email protected] if you are having difficulties.

I have some important information relating to some of the features of the Christmas Parties, these two points are for all attendees to all parties:

  • Be sure to capture the Event Indicator Munzee at the event you attend. Your host has the code. This not only gives you the Event Indicator special icon, it will also give you the Christmas Party Attendee badge and a little surprise from Father Christmas.
  • Be sure to wear your best festive gear if you would like a chance at winning the Dodgy Jumper competition. Hosts will be submitting a player name and photo after the event. That player and the hosts will get the Dodgy Jumper badge. Hosts: just because you will be getting the badge for nominating someone else doesn’t mean you don’t have to make an effort!

Most events have taken the Lucky Dip option. This is a $20 add on that turns a specified Munzee into a magic Munzee that gives a credit item from the past, present or future every time it is capped. If you would like to add this to your event, please let me know ASAP.

Lastly, I would like to thank you all for your support with events. Your enthusiasm and efforts involved in them as hosts and attendees is fantastic and I look forward to growing the game, the map and the community even more with you all. Have a wonderful time this month and I can’t wait to hear all about it and see all those dodgy pictures!!

Cheers and Merry Christmas, Louise x
