World Turtle Day Specials!

To celebrate World Turtle Day on May 23rd, we’re excited to announce new turtle specials will be crawling to the map! These shell-shocking specials go live May 19th at 00:01 MHQ and will stay until May 28th at 23:59 MHQ.

These 1200 turtle specials will bounce on greenies every six hours or when capped, and you can cap them on your own munzees! You’ll earn 23 points for capping a turtle and the owner of the munzee will earn 17 points for CapOn.

You’ll also earn this totally tubular tortoise badge for capping one of these specials.

We have also released a new version of the Specials Map which allows you to filter what specials you can see so be sure to check it out before chasing after these turtles!

World Turtle Day was started in 2000 by the American Tortoise Rescue to raise awareness and respect for turtles and tortoises, and encourage human action to help them survive and thrive. In connection with our Safar-Zee charity special Munzee encourages our players to show respect for wildlife of all sorts.

Thank you for your support and good luck! Munzee on!

Premium Munzee Badges!

In May of 2012 we released our Premium Munzee membership program and we’re now excited to offer badges for those that joined the program and further reward those that have stuck with us! The Munzee Premium badges are awarded to players who have deployed Premium Munzees. These unique munzees can only be earned by joining or renewing the Premium Munzee program, and then deploying those premium munzees.

These five badges (one for each year of renewal) are retroactive and you can earn them now! They are not actually earned based on number of years as a premium member, but instead by the number of premium munzees you have deployed. If you have premium credits in your account, NOW is the time to get them deployed!

If you are interested in renewing your Premium account (and earning another premium credit and the other goodies again) you can do so HERE.

Upgrade your existing Munzee account to a Premium Membership and enjoy a unique set of perks! For $30/year you will (currently) receive the following:

  • Premium Munzee – This munzee is only available to Premium members and is worth 10 deployment and capture points.
  • Motel Munzee credit – This munzee is only available to Premium members through the store, you may purchase up to 5 per month.
  • 4 MVM – These munzees can be deployed in places where it is impossible to hide a physical munzee. They are virtual. Deploy in app or via the online map.
  • Social Munzee – Besides being location-less and mobile, the Social Munzee can be branded with your own custom logo (500 pixels x 500 pixels).
  • Expanded user stats – Go behind the scenes with detailed munzee activity stats that you can view and share with other users.
  • First access (usually distributed for free) to many brand new products.
  • App Ad Removal Option under settings in app
  • Advanced Filters
  • Multi User Login in app (3 users)
  • and more!

*We like to keep this fresh so we reserve the right to substitute/add/change/tweak this program with no advance notice. The value will always remain the same, or be higher!

Once purchased you will receive your Premium Munzee as a credit, to be added when you deploy a munzee. Your Motel, MVMs, Social, and expanded stats will be immediately available on your account as well. If you are renewing your premium membership it will add 365 days to the end of your current expiration date.

We appreciate all of our Premium players and especially those who renew each year! If you have never become a premium member, NOW is the time to give it a try!

Munzee on!

Open House Gallery!

Our MH-New Open House was a huge hit! It was great to hang out with some of our players and show off our new office space. Flat Matt made his first appearance, we hosted a not-so-brief Facebook Live videocast and much more! We even had a few surprise guests show up, including our friends from the National Breast Cancer Foundation Donation!

Thank you to everyone that joined us in person as well as those who deployed in the area for all of us to enjoy.

Slide through the gallery (see small arrows in the bottom right corner of image above) to see how well we monkey around!

Munzee on!

Introducing the Hydra Mythological Munzee!

It’s been three month’s since the Faun Mythological Munzee introduced the Classical Mythology set of munzees and began guiding players around the world on their quests. Some members of Team Munzee were in search of the Fountain of Youth and found another Mythological Munzee that was not helpful at all. In fact, this new beast stands guard to protect the Fountain. This Mythological Munzee is the Hydra.

On Wednesday, May 17th at 15:00 MHQ time, 1,500 Hydra Mythological Munzees will be available in the Munzee Online Store for $20.00. Like the Faun before it, each player is limited to one (1) Hydra Munzee per account, and the sale is open to anyone regardless of other Mythological ownership.

There will also be Hydra Munzee decals available, as well as Yeti and Faun Munzee decals, at that time.

Details:

Name: The Hydra

Description: The Hydra Munzee bounces on greenies every 12 hours or when captured. Each is numbered and owned by a Munzee player. Only 1 Hydra Munzee is allowed per account. You will also earn the Hydra badge for owning a Hydra Munzee.

Points:

  • Deploy: 100
  • Capture: 100
  • CapOn: 100

Matt’s Been Flattened!

In November 2015 Flat Rob was released and he’s been traveling the world ever since. All that travel can be a bit lonely though, so we’re excited to announce that he now has a similarly two-dimensional friend- Flat Matt!

After three years with Team Munzee we’ve finally put enough pressure on Matt McCann to flatten him! The first Flat Matt has been released as a permanent MHQ special at our Open House today and they’ll go on sale for the public on June 1st. Flat Matts work much like Flat Robs, but there are some differences.

Flat Robs may be activated when Rob is traveling, but Flat Matts are activated based on specific sporting event schedules. Exactly what schedules? Well we can’t spill all of Flat Matt’s secrets! Stay tuned for more gameplay details when Flat Matts go on sale next month.

To celebrate Flat Matt’s global release MHQ is hosting a Munzee Event at the Frisco Roughriders baseball game Thursday June 1st and we’d love for you to join us! Be sure to RSVP on the Munzee Calendar. We’ll have more details about the event in a couple weeks so stay tuned for more info!

MHQ is MH-NEW!

Remember to RSVP to our MHNew Open House event this Friday on the Munzee Event Calendar. Those in attendance will get an awesome new badge for the Open House as well as a few new badges for visiting MHQ!

We’re also going to start a monthly Open House program as well! On the second Friday of each month we will have an Open House Munzee event from 2-5 PM. This will be a great time to check out the new offices, chat with MHQ staff and more. Keep an eye on the calendar for future dates as well!

We understand everyone can’t make it to Texas though, so be on the lookout for a new social media campaign soon! We’ll be interviewing team members about their new offices so you can get a first hand account of what our interior design skills look like.

Ahead of Friday’s Open House, we wanted to showcase a few MHQ team members hanging in our new offices. We’ve still got some space to fill, but we’ve been having a pretty good time breaking it in. We promise that in between wiffle ball games and scooter rides we actually do get stuff done!

We’re super excited to see new and old friends on Friday and thank you all for your well wishes with the move! Munzee on!

Player of the Week: Sonny Harrison (Sonny32712)

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.
