Diabetes Awareness Charity Special

Rob and Matt mentioned on the latest podcast that a new charity special was on the way, and we’re happy to announce that it is here! Starting now, you can purchase and deploy the Diabetes Awareness Charity Special.

Diabetes awareness is a very important cause that is near and dear to many of our hearts. From family members to friends, many, if not all, of us know someone who has been affected by diabetes. From MunzFit events to the Tour de Cure to this charity special, we’ve planned this Fall to focus on health and diabetes awareness and research.

Money raised from the Diabetes Awareness Charity Special will be donated to the American Diabetes Association through the Tour de Cure. The remainder of the money will be donated to the International Diabetes Federation (IDF). The IDF is an umbrella organization that consists of over 200 diabetes associations in 170 countries to help those living with diabetes and those at risk. This charity special also coincides with World Diabetes Day (November 14th), the world’s largest diabetes awareness campaign.

The Diabetes Awareness Charity Special will be on the map from Monday, October 16th at 15:00 MHQ time (now) through Sunday, November 19th at 23:59 MHQ time. Specials can be purchased in the Munzee Online Store through October 31st at 23:59 MHQ time These are available for $2.00 each, and there is a limit of 50 per username. You can find them here. These are temporary and will be archived at the end of this special campaign, similar to previous charity campaign specials in the past.

These are temporary virtual munzees that can be placed anywhere via Quick Deploy, and there is a Diabetes Awareness filter in the app under “Virtual” (make sure to turn it on). They have a 300ft capture radius and are blastable as well. These charity specials do follow proximity rules with all other types (excluding Flats). On November 19th at 23:59 they will be archived and removed from the map so plan and deploy early.

Points for the Diabetes Awareness Special are as follows:

  • Deploy: 14
  • Capture: 14
  • CapOn: 10

You can also earn the Diabetes Awareness Special badge for capturing or deploying 1 Diabetes Awareness Special.

During this fundraiser, we’d like to highlight stories about diabetes (or health in general) and how Munzee has helped you. If you have a story you would like to share, please email iloveyou@munzee.com.

We hope you enjoy this temporary charity special virtual game piece, and we thank you in advance for your support.

Munzee on!

Introducing the Freezer Burn badge!

We’re proud to announce a new challenge for our players: The Freezer Burn badge! You can earn this new badge by getting burned and frozen in the same day when capping the Fire and Ice Elemental Munzees.

The Freezer Burn badge is now live to earn, but it is not retroactive so you’ll need to prepare for some fresh burns and frostbite. We know this is no easy feat, so work with your fellow players and deploy Fire and Ice Munzees to better each others’ chances!

You can purchase an Elemental Munzee Pak in the Munzee online store, or buy individual elementals through authorized Munzee Resellers. Resellers will also have Ice Mystery Munzees on sale for 10% off.

Good luck and Munzee on!

 

Suffering from a brain freeze? Here’s a refresher on how each elemental effect works:

Fire Mystery Munzees

When you capture a Fire Mystery three Fires will then scatter to greenies within 1 mile. When you capture one of these Fires there is a chance you’ll extinguish the flame and earn 50 points. Unfortunately there’s also a chance you’ll get burned and LOSE 5 points. On the bright side you can earn badges for getting burned though!

Ice Mystery Munzees

Similar to the Fire, when you capture an Ice Mystery three Freezes will then scatter to greenies within 1 mile. Luckily you won’t lose any points for capturing a Freeze. Unfortunately there is also a chance you’ll be frozen and unable to play the game for one minute. Surviving the Ice Age might be worth it though because you can also earn some cool badges for getting frozen!

Flat Day The 13th Specials

There is a chill in the air and something wicked this way comes on… FLAT DAY THE 13TH!

This Friday is a Friday the 13th so we wanted to celebrate with a nefarious new special. Starting at 00:01 MHQ on October 13th a Fiendish Flat Rob will begin bouncing around the map until October 15th at 23:59 MHQ. Traditionally Friday the 13th is considered to be a very unlucky day for all involved, so let’s hope you can turn your luck around a bit this weekend!

Although Flat Rob is usually a virtual game piece, this masked version of him bounces on greenies like other specials. 1,313 masked Flat Robs will jump on greenies every 6 hours or when capped. These will be attracted to Munzee Magnets so be sure to stock up on those in the Munzee Online Store. 

You CAN capture these specials on your own greenies.

Points:

31 Capture points
13 Cap On points

You’ll also earn a badge featuring our fiendishly flat friend for capturing a Flat Day The 13th special. Flat Day The 13th captures will also count toward the Specials Capture badges.

To continue the celebration of Flat Day The 13th we will also have Flat Robs and Flat Matts on sale for 13% off in the Munzee Online Store starting Friday at 00:01 MHQ.

On this Friday the 13th we wish you all good luck and happy hunting. Munzee on!

Tour de Cure: Race Week Update

Hey, everyone!

Tour de Cure is THIS WEEKEND! The team is ready to race, and we’re excited to be supporting such a good cause. The Team Munzee cycling kits have arrived, and Louise is already sporting one.

A limited quantity will be available in the Munzee Online Store soon.

As we mentioned before, we will be hosting a Munzee Event after the races, so you can come support the race team, roam around Southfork Ranch, or check our the vendors booths. This will be a MunzFit event too!

Speaking of vendor booths, Eventzee will have a Tour de Cure-wide scavenger hunt going on during the event with a booth in the vendor area to spread the word about both Munzee and Eventzee.

We know everyone can’t make it, but we appreciate any support you can give, whether that be joining our team, cheering us on, or helping us raise funds for the American Diabetes Association by donating to the team.

We’ll be sharing plenty of pictures on race day, and we can’t thank you enough for your support. Keep an eye out for more information about an upcoming way to give back, as well.

Munzee on!

Introducing Overall Destination Badges!

Room service, anyone?

We’re happy to announce that a new line of badges have been released for capturing and deploying Destination Munzees of any type. With rooms booked up so often we wanted to give our players even more of a reason to continue capturing and deploying Motels, Hotels, Virtual Resorts and Timeshares.

These new badges are retroactive, but you’ll only be able to see the requirements for the next badge once you complete the previous one.

Here’s a look at the first badge for each set.

Once you earn the first in the set you’ll unlock the requirements for the next badge. Please note that Rooms within Destination Munzees will not count toward these badges. All of the badges are live so you can start earning them now.

These badges may be a bit tough to earn, but nobody said building a Destination empire was easy!

Happy hunting and as always, Munzee on!

Player of the Week: Rob Collins (coastingcollins)

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 Rob Collins (coastingcollins).

Who are you?
My name is Rob, Munzee username “coastingcollins”. Some of my friends call me “RoBbY bObBy”.

Where in the world do you live?
I live in the Beautiful Heart of the Ozarks in Springfield, Missouri, USA.

How long have you played Munzee?
I have been playing Munzee for 520 days, with a streak to match. My first capture was on May 1st, 2016, and my first deploy was on May 4th, 2016. (I didn’t have any munzees to deploy until a fellow player offered to help me out — Thanks, Semipaw!!!)

How did you find Munzee?
After a long previous day of playing another geo-location based game, I was scrolling through Facebook right before church, and I saw a one-minute video. I told my wife. “rollermama”, that the game looked pretty fun and interesting. Little did I know, I was hooked.

What do you most enjoy about Munzee?
Well, this is a tough question, so I have to go with 2 answers…

First, I would have to say FAMILY TIME. I’m a proud dad of 5 amazing kids and the husband to my amazing, beautiful wife, Cindy aka “rollermama”. The time we go out and play Munzee is priceless. Just sitting back and reflecting on all of the memories the game has brought my family kinda makes me teary eyed.

Secondly, I would have to say events. I really enjoy seeing the community of players get together and enjoy everyone’s company. From the smiles I see from all ages at the events to the stories of other players about their munzing days, they are friends I would be proud to call family. It’s all very special to me.

What is on your wish list?
Traveling the ole roads of the United States and capping and deploying munzees at every amusement park. Oh, and the infamous Glitch Badge.

Tell us about yourself!
Well, like I stated before, I’m a proud dad of 5 amazing kids and the husband to my amazing, beautiful wife, Cindy. We also have three dogs (Jet, Chloe, and Charleigh), two cats (Gadget and KitKat), and tons of fish. I’m a family man and love spending time outdoors with my family.

Other hobbies include:
I’m a big roller coaster geek (hence my name “coastingcollins”). I love riding coasters with friends and family. Again, the smiles you see on people’s faces while they enjoy good times are very rewarding

Any last words?
I would like to thank the local Munzee community, GAD64 and Semipaw. Without them, we couldn’t have grown the map and make Springfield, MO a Munzee stop. I would also like to thank the online Munzee community for helping me fill my local gardens (4 of them so far with 2 more already planned). Lastly, I would like to thank my fellow Munzee players and friends who nominated me for POTW. This is an HONOR, and I’m very thankful. So, until next time, my friends… Munzee on!

coastingcollins has also included a social, so cap away!

October Physical MunzPak and Introducing the Seasonal Munzee!

Over the past few months, we’ve been trying to refine our MunzPak programs by listening to feedback and requests from subscribers. This month, we’re implementing some new changes in response to that feedback. October’s Physical MunzPak includes only physical stickers. While we will still be including generics, any special munzee types will be included as stickers and not credits.

This month’s Physical MunzPak includes:

  • 5 New Seasonal Munzees (see below)
  • 3 Fire Mystery Munzees
  • 3 Ice Mystery Munzees
  • 2 Earth Mystery Munzees
  • 2 Water Mystery Munzees
  • 35 Mini Generic Stickers

We’ve also changed how the stickers are printed. All of the items included in this month’s Physical MunzPak are on one sheet. The layout for this sheet is below.

There will also be an insert included in the MunzPak envelope that explains this.


Now, let’s talk about the new Seasonal Munzee!

The new Seasonal Munzee is similar to the Evolution Munzees in that it changes after a period of time. The Season Munzee will change to the corresponding season on set dates:

  • October 1st – Fall (Northern Hemisphere)/Spring (Southern Hemisphere)
  • January 1st – Winter (Northern Hemisphere)/Summer (Southern Hemisphere)
  • April 1st – Spring (Northern Hemisphere)/Fall (Southern Hemisphere)
  • July 1st – Summer (Northern Hemisphere)/Winter (Southern Hemisphere)

This cycle will be continuous, but you can only capture each stage of the munzee once (i.e. if you capture the Fall stage, you cannot capture the Fall stage a year later).

Points

  • Deploy – 25 points
  • Capture – 20 points (per season captured)
  • CapOn – 10 points

Proximity Rules: 150ft from your own munzees; 50ft from other players’ munzees


We hope you enjoy the new Seasonal Munzee as well as the changes to MunzPak! If you’re not a MunzPak subscriber, you can subscribe here.

Munzee on!
