Introducing The Faun Mythological Munzee!

Something wild this way comes… The Faun Mythological Munzee!

As the first member of our Greek Mythology set, the Faun is a woodland creature not unlike the Leprechaun. This half goat- half human fella is known for guiding tourists in the forest and has a penchant for all things Earthy.

1,500 Faun Mythological Munzees will go on sale Monday February 20th at 15:00 MHQ Time in the Munzee Online Store for $20. Similar to other mythological releases, each player is limited to one each, but the sale is open to anyone- no matter if you have previous mythologicals or not. These furry forest dwellers are attracted to Earth Mystery Munzees, which are also for sale in the online store.

Details:

Name
: The Faun
Description:
The Faun Munzee bounces around on greenies and Earth Mystery Munzees every 12 hours or when captured. Each is numbered and owned by a Munzee player. Only 1 Faun Munzee is allowed per player.

Capture: 100
CapOn: 100

Introducing the Earth Mystery Munzee!

You’ve all played with Fire and been frozen by Ice, but now it’s time to clean up with the new Earth Mystery Munzee!

This new physical Munzee type is much like its elemental counterparts, but don’t expect it to scatter every time you cap an Earth Mystery! While Fire left you burned and Ice frozen solid, the Earth Munzee is all about Going Green. When you capture an Earth Munzee all munzees that haven’t been capped in over a year will turn into a Recycle Munzee for two hours- but only for you to see.

Name: Earth Mystery Munzee
Points:
Deploy: 50
Cap/CapOn: Split of 60 with min of 5.

Availability

Earth Mystery Munzees are available NOW in the Munzee Online Store. They are physical stickers sold in blocks of 20 for $40 USD. There is currently a limit of 100 per person, per month.

We’re also excited to announce the Elemental Munzee Pak which will include 10 Fire, Ice and Earth Mystery Munzees for $40. You can also find these in the Munzee Online Store.

Speaking of the Fire and Ice Mystery Munzees, the Yetis and Dragons heard your cries and thought to bring you a nice surprise. Fire and Ice Mysteries now have an increased chance of attracting Dragons and Yetis, respectively!

Be on the lookout for Earth shattering badges to be released soon!

Have fun, and #MunzEE on! #E1EW

Coinz Of The Month- February UPDATE

The next LOVELY Coinz Of The Month set will go on sale Thursday, February 16th 2017 at 15:00 MHQ Time!

February’s Coinz are a throwback Candy Heart special and the Muscle Car Evolution Munzee!

Since the first COTM Club last month we have been trying to figure out how to fairly and easily expand the size of this program to more players. We have been quite surprised at how quickly Munzee Coinz have continued to sell, but we worry that reserving our very limited stock to the same players each month isn’t the best way to grow the Coinz program. Because of this we have reengineered how the COTM Club works to better fit our players’ needs. For starters, it won’t be a club.

For the foreseeable future, all Coinz Of The Month coinz will be released to the Munzee Online store as opposed to our MunzPak site. The price will remain $15 for a set of two unique coinz, but these packs will be sold on a first come first served basis. NOTE that this means buying the Coinz of The Month coinz one month will not guarantee you get coinz the following month. We hope that this will allow players to acquire these products in the most fair way possible.

Players who did sign up for the first COTM subscription will not see any recurring charges moving forward, but you will have to purchase the next set of coinz like everyone else. An updated version of the COTM badge will still be awarded to whoever is able to purchase those coinz each month, but only for the specified COTM coinz.

Thank you for your patience as we work out the kinks to this new program and we apologize for the issues regarding this release. We take our players’ input very seriously and it helps us moving forward. We’ve got some awesome coin designs coming in both the COTM sets and regular sales, so be on the lookout each month!

You can find all Munzee Coinz for sales in the online store collection HERE.

Valentine’s Day 2017 Special!

It’s February, and love is in the air. With Valentine’s Day rapidly approaching, many people are scrambling to make sure they get the right gift for their loved ones. Whether you have a valentine or not, though, you should always get a little something for yourself. We’re here to help with our Valentine’s Day 2017 Special!

From tomorrow (February 10th) at 00:01 MHQ time until February 19th at 23:59 MHQ time, 2017 boxes of chocolate will be on the map. These icons will bounce on greenies every six hours or when capped. When captured, three pieces of chocolate will scatter within a mile radius: Coconut Chocolate, Cherry Chocolate, and Dark Chocolate. These scattered chocolates will expire two hours after they appear or after capture, whichever comes first.

Points

Each icon will reward different points:

Box of Chocolate
Capture: 14
CapOn (for host owner): 14

Coconut Chocolate
Capture/CapOn: Split of 15 with a minimum of 5 (i.e.: 10 for capper and 5 for host owner, 5 for capper and 10 for host owner)

Cherry Chocolate
Capture/CapOn: Split of 25 with a minimum of 5 (i.e.: 15 for capper and 10 for host owner, 5 for capper and 20 for host owner)

Dark Chocolate
Capture/CapOn: Split of 35 with a minimum of 5 (i.e.: 10 for capper and 25 for host owner, 30 for capper and 5 for host owner)

Badges

There are two badges that can be earned during this special: Valentine’s Day 2017 and Chocoholic.

The Valentine’s Day 2017 badge is earned by capturing the Box of Chocolate icon or any of the scattered chocolates. The Chocoholic icon is earned by capturing all three types of chocolate icons.

Be our valentine?

Munzee on!

Scatter Munzee Badge Line

Scatter Munzees can send you every which way to cap their offshoots. Munzee player “Snarf” suggested an awesome new badge line to show just how dedicated our players are to capping Scatter Munzees. We were happy to take their idea and run with it!

With that, we’re proud to announce the mind-bending Scatter Capture badge line!

The Scatter Capture badge line includes three badges: “Scatter Brained!”, “View Askew!”, and “Helter Skelter!” for capping 5, 50, and 100 Scatter Munzees, respectively.

The Scatter Capture badges will begin awarding TOMORROW (February 9th). These badges ARE retroactive.

NOTE: These badges are only for capping the original Scatter Munzee, not the ScatterED munzees. Keep an eye out for other lines that may be coming very soon. 😉

We hope you enjoy these badges!

Have fun and Munzee on!

Issues with Duplicate Coin Codes

We have discovered that there was an issue during the production of the MVM and Leprechaun Coinz. The codes for the MVM Coinz were duplicated on the Leprechaun Coinz. We are working with our supplier to have replacements with all new codes made. Mystery Pin, Dragon, Unicorn, Yeti, and Places Coinz seemingly were not affected in the mixup.

If you have an activated MVM coin, no action needs to be taken. If you have an MVM coin that says it is already linked to another account, please contact support@munzee.com, and we will help resolve that issue.

If you have a Leprechaun coin, you will receive an email regarding a replacement for your coin. Please DO NOT activate these coins if you haven’t already. If you already have, we will assist with correcting those coins.

We apologize for the confusion and inconvenience. We take full responsibility for this issue and want to correct it as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Thank you.

Coinz Badges Are Here!

The introduction of Coinz in October of last year and their expansion in January added a whole new level to the Munzee game. This part will continue to grow and with that comes new badges! Starting tomorrow (February 3rd), two lines of badges for Coinz will begin awarding: Coins Discovered and Munzees Visited.

Coins Discovered

The Coins Discovered line of badges will include World 1-1, World 1-2, and World 1-3 for discovering 10, 100, and 500 coins, respectively.

Munzees Visited

The Munzee Visited line of badges will include The Claw, Skee Ball, and Munzee Arcade for visiting 100, 500, and 1000 munzees with a coin, respectively. (Note: These require discoveries made with a single coin and do not compound, e.g. If you have 43 visits with a Longsword coin and 57 visits with a Greenie coin, you DO NOT earn the badge.)

 

These badges will be found under the Coinz category. The Munzees Visited line WILL NOT show on the badges page until earned. The Coins Discovered line will appear on the badge page with the following null image until earned:

We hope you enjoy these new badges! Keep an eye out for more information about new Coinz coming soon!

Munzee on!
