Introducing the new Temporary Virtual!

We’re excited to announce a new product called the Temporary Virtual! This new virtual item would allow players to deploy in areas that would usually not be beneficial to place a more expensive game piece or to help other players hit goals.

Much like Flat Robs and Flat Matts. these new items will be on a new layer of the map, so you don’t have to worry about trying to deploy in areas that are already overrun with other munzees. This will be especially helpful for deploying at high profile events like Munzee Madness this weekend in Southern California!

These new items are currently for sale in the Munzee Online Store and available on Quick Deploy as of 10:00 MHQ!

Check out the stats below to learn more! **Particularly take note of how long you have to deploy these before they are auto-archived.

  • Myths, Nomads or any virtual specials will NOT land on these

We love that our worldwide community works together to help one another reach their goals, whether that’s Clan Wars, ZeeOps, Events or something else entirely. We think the new Temporary Virtual will be a great tool for helping us all grow the game- even if it’s temporarily!

Thank you all for everything you do. Munzee on!

ZeeOps: March 2018 Missions

ZeeOps: Mission Mulligan & Briefcase Munzee

Agents it has now been a year since we released our first set of Operations. In that time you have taken down Mean Greenies, stopped hordes of Evos, battled the ancient First Clan, and more. We thank you for your service and we’re proud to announce a couple updates regarding the program before we release the Operations for March.

MISSION MULLIGAN

To start things off, we’re excited to announce a new feature that is sure to help you all on your Missions. The new Mission Mulligan feature will allow you to continue an Operation even if you fail a Mission. So if you fail a Mission on Day 2 of an Operation, you can use this feature to complete* that Mission without risking the success of the Operation.

  • This feature can only be used once per Operation.
  • Can only be used while the Operation is still ongoing.
  • Must be used on/before your last day.

*Note you will NOT have to redo the failed Mission, it is just automatically completed for you. The Mission Mulligan will cost you 25 ZeeCred. You can utilize this feature in the online ZeeOps Dashboard, but not in-app.

BRIEFCASE MUNZEE

The Briefcase Munzee is the first ZeeOps-specific munzee in a line of Zeecret Weapons. Similar to Clan Weapons, these physical credit items can only be earned by completing ZeeOps Operations.

When captured, the Briefcase Munzee will “spill” three “dossiers” onto greenies within a mile for 2 hours. When capped, there will be a 90% chance of a player earning 30 points. The other 10% chance will be 15 points and a Mini ZeeOp* to complete within two hours. If the player completes the Mini ZeeOp they will earn 100 points. There are a variety of Mini ZeeOps so you could get a different Operation each time!

Points

  • Briefcase:
    • Deploy: 35
    • Capture: 45
    • CapOn: 25
  • Dossiers
    • Capture: 30 or 15 Points and a mini ZeeOp
    • CapOn (host owner): 25

*The Mini ZeeOp will automatically start when you receive it. You can do normal Operations as well during this time and it will count toward both requirements.

We think both of these features will help you along your Missions and provide some fun incentives to completing your Operations. Remember that you can earn ZeeCred by completing Operations, as a prize in Prize Wheel Munzees and through the online store HERE

On behalf of MHQ, we thank you for your continued service.

Physical MunzPak Changes Coming in March

Howdy! Here at MHQ, we are always looking for ways to improve the services and  products we provide. Over the past few months, we’ve been tweaking and refining our MunzPak program. In that spirit, we will be making another change during March. The March Physical MunzPak will not launch at the beginning of the month as it has in the past. While we can’t give you full details right now, we can tell you the following:

  • All current Physical MunzPak subscriptions will end March 1st at 00:01 MHQ time.
  • Virtual MunzPak subscriptions WILL continue as they are for now.
  • When we are ready to relaunch Physical MunzPak, all former subscribers will receive an email with information regarding how to subscribe, and we will post full information here on the blog.

This IS NOT the end of Physical MunzPaks. Keep an eye out in March for information about the new and improved MunzPak! Thank you for your support, and Munzee on!

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: 4-7 Consecutive Days of Capture
  • Level 3: 8+ Consecutive Days of Capture

Your Level 1 pouch creature will need 4 consecutive days of captures for it to evolve to Level 2, this will happen after the first capture on Day 4. Your Level 2 pouch creature will need 8 consecutive days of captures for it to evolve to Level 3, this will happen after the first capture on Day 8.

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 live 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!
