Zodiac Credits and Air Mystery Munzees were introduced in August’s Physical and Virtual MunzPak, respectively. Starting tomorrow at 10:00 MHQ time, they will be available in the Munzee Online Store. Air Mystery Munzees will be $2 (with a limit of 10 per month per account) and Zodiac Credits will be $1. But that’s not all: Premium Members will receive one free Air Mystery Munzee tomorrow** as well! These will both be helpful for September Clan Wars and ZeeOps!
On another note, we’ve got the schedules* for Flat Rob and Flat Matt for September.
Matt will be attending events in Spartanburg, South Carolina this weekend to kick off a new tourism trail as part of a project for one of our players who is a Girl Scout working on her Silver Scout award. There are two events (https://calendar.munzee.com/GirlScoutKO/ and https://calendar.munzee.com/GetFitCooldown/), so join if you can!
We hope everyone has a great weekend!
*There may be additions to these schedules, and we will let you know as they happen.
**This is a one time occurrence and you must be a Premium Member before 23:59 MHQ time today.
Despite Director Zee’s return, little has been spoken regarding the First Clan’s ominous warnings of the war to come. The Director insists we must continue to focus on the work at hand, because peace is only temporary in this line of work.
Mysterious Zodiac symbols have begun showing up all across the world. It’s up to you to investigate and report back to HQ.
The Zodiac Munzees appear to be reactive to the stars and the time of year. Reports also suggest a masked vigilante is behind the ominous deploys. Be careful and if you come across this Zodiac Vigilante, do not engage until we can figure out his motives.
We have also extended our ZeeOps badge line for completing different Operation levels. Now you can earn an updated spy gadget badge for each Operation you complete 5 times. These badges are retroactive and currently available to earn. It won’t be easy, but we know you’ll emerge victorious.

After expanding the Places capture badge line last week we’re excited to announce new streak badges for capturing Places Munzees! One of the great things about Places Munzees is that you can capture them every day and visit your favorite Places over and over again. Because of this we want our players to see how long they can keep the streak going.
To earn these badges you will just have to consecutively capture a Places Munzee for a week, a month and a year.
CAUTION: MUNZEERS AT WORK – Capture any Places Munzee for 7 days in a row.
Now even though you can cap the same Places Munzee everyday you can also earn the badge by capturing any Places Munzee worldwide. That way you can still travel and capture lots of fun Places all while keeping your streak going.
You can currently buy Places Munzees in the Munzee online store, so help out your fellow travelers and deploy a few Places! You can buy one of each Places Munzee a month.
These badges go live Thursday August 31st at 15:00 MHQ and they will be retroactive in case you’ve already started capping them daily. We’re excited to see all the Places you’ll go! Good luck and Munzee on!
As you may know, Southeast Texas was hit by a major hurricane late last week. Hurricane Harvey was a Category 4 hurricane when it made landfall north of Corpus Christi, Texas and has since moved north causing catastrophic damage in the Houston area. It has also caused flooding in Austin and San Antonio and is expected to affect Louisiana as well.
Many members of Team Munzee have family and friends, including members of the Munzee community, who live in affected areas. This is a very worrisome time, and the impact of this disaster may have a global impact. We want to show that Munzee and our community are here to support those in need.
Starting at 12:00 MHQ time TODAY, Water Mystery Munzees and 20-packs of assorted mini generic munzees* will be on sale with 100% of the proceeds being donated to relief for victims of Hurricane Harvey via American Red Cross. Water Mystery Munzees (pack of 10) will be available for $15 and the 20-packs of assorted mini generic munzees will be available for $3.50. These will be available until Thursday, August 31st at 23:59 MHQ time.
All of those people that have been affected are in our thoughts, and we want to help as much as possible.
*The 20-packs of assorted mini generic munzees can include: Minis, Mini Urban Camos, or skinned mini generics.
Mythological Munzees: If there’s a physical host that is not owned by the capping player, it’s 3 points total. If the host is owned by the player, it’s only one for the myth. For a virtual host not owned by the capping player, it’s 1 for the myth and 1 for the host
September’s Clan War focuses on Activity Points and Total Points. Activity Points will be awarded as follows:
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 Jeen Huisman (J1Huisman).
Who are you? I’m Jeen Huisman, playing the game as J1Huisman.
Where in the world do you live? I’m living in Zwolle, the Netherlands.
How long have you played Munzee? Since October 2013.
How did you find Munzee?
I didn’t find Munzee, Munzee found me. Some members of the team I was working with in those days, including me, we caching. We wanted to introduce the game to another coworkers, but that coworker went googling and found Munzee as a new GPS-based game and said, “Why don’t we try this?” So we did, and bit by bit we got hooked on Munzee. So, thanks to “BaDo”, the game was introduced in the Apeldoorn region.
What do you most enjoy about Munzee? Teaming up with other players and travelling to Munzee fields together; visiting events and hunting down Mythologicals. Munzee brought me back on my bike and made me more fit again by lowering my weight by several kilos. Most captured of Mythologicals in the Zwolle region have been made biking around.
What is on your wish list? Visiting the United States, especially MHQ in McKinney and capping exclusive local munzees.
Tell us about yourself! I’m an IT Systems and Application Administrator, happily married for over 30 years (hint, hint, did you already capture that social>>) with Hettie. She joined the Munzee community as “Pinkeltje” in July of this year. We have a daughter (Inge) and a son (Niels). I think most players will have recognized my love for the Frisian Cow in my avatar.
I’m a part of the Munzee clan “Elmbridge Hundred Clan of 1086” with English, American, Swiss, and Dutch players.
Other hobbies include:
Biking, solving puzzles (e.g. sudoku)
Any last words? Many thanks to the players who wrote to Munzee for my nomination.
J1Huisman has also included some socials, so cap away!
Our resellers are great at promoting and being ambassadors for Munzee and its community. Over the past few years, we’ve worked with them to bring new ideas and game pieces, like the Reseller Unique Munzees (RUMs), to the game. Now, we’re happy to introduce a new item for our resellers: the Treasure Evolution Munzee!
The Treasure Evolution Munzee, like other Evolution Munzees, consists of three stages: Coin, Bag of Coins, and Treasure Chest.
Bag of Coins
The points for the Treasure Evolution Munzee are as follows:
Deploy: 20 Points
Coin: 10 Points
Bag of Coins: 15 Points
Treasure Chest: 20 Points
Coin: 5 Points
Bag of Coins: 10 Points
Treasure Chest: 15 Points
The Treasure Evolution Munzee will affect the Evolution badge lines, and will be visible in the physical Evolution filter in the app.
Last year, we introduced MunzFit as part of our March fundraiser for Skylar, the MDA, and the MNDA. MunzFit events were meant as a way to get our community (and our team) active while playing Munzee. We’ve continued to push ourselves to be more active in our daily lives since then, and now, we’re making another push.
On October 14th, members of Team Munzee will be participating in the American Diabetes Association’s 2017 DFW Tour de Cure. This event consists of a 5k walk/run or cycling up to 62 miles to raise funds and awareness for diabetes. Many members of the team have been directly affected by diabetes, whether it be by friends, family, or personal battles, and a few have taken part in a Tour de Cure event in the past.
We’d like to invite any Munzee community members to join us in our endeavor by participating, donating, or just cheering us on. If you would like to join our team or make a donation, you can follow this link to our Team Page. (Please read all of the information and requirements before signing up to participate.) If you would like to come cheer us on, we’ll be hosting an event of sorts. It is on the Munzee Calendar, and more information will be coming soon.
We’ve also created a Team Munzee cycling club on Strava (a running and cycling tracking social network). If you’d like to join, you can find us here.
Limited quantities of merchandise based on our custom jerseys will be available in the Munzee Online Store soon, but here’s a sneak peak.
The Tour de Cure is just part of what we have planned for the upcoming months, so keep an eye out for some more exciting announcements.
