ZeeOps: May Missions

In April our ZeeOps Agents stopped the Mean Green Gang from using secret Fire and Ice technology for evil with the help of the secret organization of resellers known as R.U.M.! An agent’s job is never done though, so prepare for another month of twists and turns.

Following your victories last month the Mean Green Gang has gone on the run. It’s up to you to find where they’re hiding by searching Munzee Destinations worldwide. Look for undercover Mean Green Gang members by capturing and deploying Hotel, Motel, Resort and Timeshare Munzees. Simply searching various Destinations won’t be enough to find the hidden Mean Green Gang members though. Prove the area is secured by renting rooms in Destination Munzees of any type. Remember that there are a limited number of rooms in each Destination Munzee, so you’ll need to be quick to capture when a new one is deployed near you.

May ZeeOps Operations are now live and you can begin planning your Missions to start on the following day. You can plan your Operations at munzee.com/ops/ and purchase more ZeeCred in the Munzee Online Store.

This month’s Missions are as follows:

Coinz Of The Month, Evolution Coin, Re-released Coinz and Flat Robs!

April isn’t over yet- Coinz are on sale NOW!

We apologize for the delay on this month’s Coinz of The Month set, our move to the new office slowed down the shipping process a bit. This month’s coinz feature The Sillyman from our 2015 April Fool’s special as well a cool Earth Day planted tree design. Remember that COTM are $15 for a set of two coinz and are limited to one per player. If you missed out on last month’s COTM we still have a few sets available as well! You can buy both sets HERE. 

 

We’re also excited to release a new Evolution Munzee coin which is perfect for tracking your Evo captures. The Evolution Munzee Coin is for sale for $10 and you can buy one HERE.

The coinz keep on coming! We’re pleased to re-release our first set of Munzee Coinz: The Longsword, Greenie and Flat Rob! These were released in very limited quantity last year so we’re happy to restock for those that missed out. The Longsword, Greenie and Flat Rob coins are $10 a piece and you can buy those HERE.

Speaking of our favorite flat fella… CZeeO Rob Vardeman is out of town so Flat Robs are on the map NOW until Sunday at 23:59 MHQ. We also have Flat Robs for sale in the store for the weekend so stock up and deploy while you can!  Flat Robs a $5 each and you can buy those HERE. 

Please note that since it is Friday we won’t have anyone in the office for the weekend, so Coinz shipments won’t go out until Monday. We appreciate your understanding and we hope you’re as excited as we are for all the coinz craziness!

Munzee on!

Introducing the Timeshare Munzee!

Howdy folks! Rockin’ Rob Vardeman has a special opportunity for YOU to be a part of the Royal Zee Travel family. We’re excited to announce the latest in our line of Destination Munzees: The Timeshare Munzee!

The new Timeshare Munzee is the latest in our Destination line of munzees alongside the Motel, Hotel and Virtual Resort. This physical credit item features 5 Rooms so the first 5 players to cap the Timeshare get a room deployed. Here’s the kicker though, Rooms only stay deployed for 30 days!

At the end of 30 days the rented room is archived and a new room is then available for the first player to cap the Timeshare. This new room will be available for any player including the person who just had their room archived, which means after 30 days you can recap to earn another room.

Proximity: A Timeshare must be at least 2000 feet away any other Timeshares and 500 feet away from other Destination Munzees.

Rooms: There are 5 rooms available in the Timeshare. After 30 days a rented room will be archived and a new room will open up.

Deploy: 100 points

Capture: You can earn 25 points and then 10 points per room rented.

CapOn: 10 points per room for the owner and 10 points for the renter of room

Release: The Timeshare will be a MunzPak exclusive for the month of May. Each MunzPak subscriber will receive three (3) Timeshare credits with their May MunzPak. To sign up visit munzpak.com.

NOTE: If you’re not currently a MunzPak subscriber and want to get the Timeshare you need to signup on May 1st to receive the May shipment. If you are interested in April’s MunzPak you can subscribe now to receive this month’s shipment and then change your billing date on May 1st to receive May’s shipment.

We’re also releasing two new lines of totally tubular Timeshare Badges you can earn by deploying and renting rooms.

We’re excited to see where everyone starts deploying their new Timeshares and thank you all once again for helping grow the game in new and unique ways!

Munzee on!

UPDATE: These are being launched in the May PHYSICAL MunzPak only. They are a physical type credit.

6 Million Deployed Munzees!

We’ve reached a new milestone. On April 19th, the 6 Millionth active munzee was deployed in the Netherlands by zoekix!

For the past (almost) six years, we’ve watched Munzee grow in amazing ways. We were thrilled when the 1 Millionth munzee was deployed in January 2014. Three years later, Munzee has reached new heights and is only poised to go higher. For now, though, we’re celebrating what you, our players, have built.

First off, zoekix’s greenie deploy is now a special icon worth 6 points.

We want everyone to get in on the celebration, though, so we’re also going to put out specials using this 6 Million icon!

From 12:00 MHQ time on Friday, April 28th through 12:00 MHQ time on Thursday, May 4th, 600 “6 Millionth Munzee” specials will be bouncing on greenies every 6 hours or when captured, and you WILL be able to capture them on your own munzees. You will receive 20 points for capturing one of these specials, and the owner of the host greenie will earn 17 points.

Thank you so much for your support and help with growing the map. We can’t wait to see the game and community grow even more.

Munzee on!

Munzee Referral Program Update: Rewards and Badges

Last week, we introduced Referral Leaderboards and Custom Referral Cards as a part of our Referral Program expansion. We told you to be on the look out for more updates, and the time has come! We’re happy to announce Referral Rewards and Referral Badges!

Referral Rewards

Word of mouth has made the biggest impact on growing the game, and you, our loyal players, are the most important part of that. Your hard work and passion for the game is what helps it grow. We want to thank and reward you for doing this.

There are now two ways to earn gift cards to the Munzee Online Store through the Referral Munzee program: Introductions and Referral Points Earned. Once you hit certain milestones for these two categories, respectively, you will be sent a gift card code.

These milestones are as follows:

Introductions

  • 5 Introductions – $5 Gift Code
  • 25 Introductions – $10 Gift Code
  • 100 Introductions – $25 Gift Code
  • 200 Introductions – $50 Gift Code

Referral Points Earned

  • 500 Referral Points Earned – $5 Gift Code
  • 1500 Referral Points Earned – $10 Gift Code
  • 2500 Referral Points Earned – $15 Gift Code
  • 5000 Referral Points Earned – $25 Gift Code

These rewards will be retroactive, so your past hard work in spreading the game will be acknowledged. For example, if you have 58 Introductions and have earned 2704 Referral Points, you will receive $5 and $10 gift codes for Introduction milestones and $5, $10, and $15 codes for Referral Points Earned milestones.

These will begin awarding tomorrow, April 26th at 01:30 MHQ time. If you’ve reached any of the milestones, you will separate receive emails with your respective gift codes.

Referral Badges 

Along with the Referral Rewards come Referral Badges. Like the Rewards, the badges are based on Introductions and Referral Points Earned. These badge lines will have to be unlocked one at a time though, so keep sharing your Munzee Referral Code with new players to earn them all!

The first badge for Introductions is the “Business Cards” badge, which you can earn by having 5 Introductions on your Munzee Referral Code.

Business Cards- 5 Introductions

The first badge for Referral Points Earned is the “Flying Standby” badge for earning 500 Referral Points.

Flying Standby – 500 Referral Points Earned

These badges are also retroactive, and will begin awarding tomorrow, April 25th at 10:00 MHQ time.

Referral Page

If you haven’t checked out the Referral Program page on your profile recently, make sure you do! On this page, you can find your Referral code as well as the players you’ve introduced to the game and the number of Referral Points you’ve earned.

We want to thank you for all of your hard work growing the game. You are the backbone of the game and community. With your help, we can make the game bigger and better than ever before!

Munzee on!

MHQ is moving offices!

We’re excited to announce that Munzee Headquarters is expanding in a big way! We have upgraded our offices to a much larger space which we will be debuting in grand fashion. The new spot is located at 1720 Bray Central Drive – McKinney, TX 75069, a few miles away from our previous offices.

We know everyone will be eager to deploy around our new office, but we have some big plans in store too! A deploy exclusion zone has been placed over the surrounding area, but this will be readjusted in the near future. There is a small physical exclusion zone around the property so we don’t bother the other tenants in the building.

As everyone knows moving can be a bit tiresome, so we are asking that anyone who wants to visit MHQ hold off until May 12th so we can get ourselves in order (exceptions for those who have already contacted us or have plans in place). Worry not though, because we’re doing it big with an open house!

Join Team Munzee in person for the grand opening of our new offices on May 12th from 2-5 PM MHQ. We will have snacks, prizes, a new MHQ grand opening badge, event indicator pin, and many more surprises!

Be sure to let us know you’ll be joining in the fun at https://calendar.munzee.com/NewMHQ/. We know not everyone can make it to TX though, so we will broadcast live on FB for anyone who can’t attend the ceremony!

Stay tuned for more info about the new space, our grand opening and more soon!

Player of the Week: Anu Sundell (anski)

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 Anu Sundell (anski).


Who are you?

Hi, my name is Anu, and my player name is anski.

I am a photographer with my own studio. My clientele is mostly children and families. I love my job and have been fortunate to make a dear hobby into a profession.

Where in the world do you live?
I live in Kokkola which is a small town in Finland. Even though our town isn’t big, it is one of the most active towns in Finland where Munzee is played. We have a good number of active players.

How long have you played Munzee?
I have been playing since August 2013.

How did you find Munzee?
I found my first QR code in a cache and was very curious to find out what it was. I scanned it with a QR reader and found my answer! Excited as ever, I rushed home to a computer to find out more. In no time, I had my own Munzee profile set up.

At that time, there were only a few greenies on the map, and 100 points in a day was definitely something else! I am one of the first players in the area. Nowadays, there is a good sized group of active players in the area whcih I am super excited about.

What do you most enjoy about Munzee?
Along with my husband (Tomppa71), I am really into Clan Wars. We both are members of the NorthernWestCoast clan. Due to the number of active players in the area, there are other active clans as well which we like to cooperate with. Reaching common goals and getting to know the other players are aspects of the game that I really like. Being in a clan has given me the opportunity to meet numerous new players. Munzee takes you to new places and encourages you to get out and about.

What is on your wish list?
I enjoy the various themed specials that luckily appear on the map rather often. They give added spice to Clan Wars. So, my wish is for Munzee to keep that up. The downside to having multiple active players in a small town is that just about all the poles are taken already. Hence, it would be nice to have a virtual that acted like a greenie. In other words, you would have to be at the location to deploy. With “virtual greenies”, it would be possible to build new trails, e.g. on nature trails. Having the same filters on the website map as in the app would help when planning where to go and what to cap.

Tell us about yourself!
As a Munzee players, I am more into tactics than capping the most possible points. I set up my goals according to Clan War requirements. I mostly play in the vicinity of my hometown, but I do have plans to visit some point heavy areas in the future. Maybe the next vacation destination will be chosen with the help of the Munzee map 😉

Other hobbies include:
During summers, I spend a lot of time in our vacation spot at a camping site in Kalajoki, Finland. As it happens, it is also an active Munzee area. It is also a fantastic site for walking by the sea, admiring gorgeous sunsets. I actually spend most of my free with my dear hobby, Munzee.

Any last words?
I would like to thank those whom nominated me. I am really surprised and excited about this. A great, big thank you to Team Munzee for a great game. Munzee on!

anski has included some socials, so cap away!
