MHQ 6th Birthday Bash Recap!

We had a SUPER good time during MHQ’s Birthday Bash! Players from all over joined us for a fun afternoon at the MHQ offices last Friday. They walked away with Birthday Comic skinned stickers, were the first to get their hands on some awesome Munzee Worldwide apparel, and earned more than a couple badges! Everyone showed off their heroic profiles in the Eventzee photo backdrop with a wide array of superhero costumes.

Thank you again to everyone who came and we’re excited to see all of you and more at MHQ Bash in the Fall!

Even if you couldn’t make it out to MHQ’s Birthday Bash, there are still a bunch of 6th Birthday events going on all around the world. Join Rob and Matt in Munzee, IN this weekend for even more fun.

Happy birthday to us and Munzee on!

Check out the photo gallery below to see some of the fun!

Birthday Event Update

Greetings everyone! This message comes to you on behalf of Louise, our events manager, based in the UK. It is mainly for the hosts of previous and upcoming events however some information is helpful to all players as well.

In case you didn’t know July has already been a record breaking month for events in many ways. Our largest event ever happened in Bielefeld Germany with over 250 attendees. We’ve seen well over 2,000 players attend more than 50 events around the world. AND we’re only half way through the month with more events on the way!

In addition to all of this activity, we let you know in advance that Louise would be very busy on the personal side of her life during the month. She’s had multiple long distance bike races with another happening at the end of the month. This past weekend she competed in L’Etape du Tour in the French Alps, aka Stage 18 of this years Tour de France (being raced by the professionals in two days). It was a grueling 125 mile (200 km) race with over 12000 feet (4000 m) of elevation change, over two mountain passes, but we are happy to report she completed it with no major injuries or issues. Team Munzee is proud of our “cycling queen” for this major achievement as she smashed the course in less than 10 hours! If you’d like to see a satellite overview video of her race please click here.

In addition to the time away for the race she was unexpectedly delayed due to the airport closure at London Gatwick, and subsequently Lyon France. She’s arrived home safe and sound now but has a mountain of emails and event wrap up to do (fortunately she’s proven she can climb mountains!). We appreciate your patience as she works her way through all of her usual work over the next 48-72 hours. This includes any new event submissions over the last week.

Munzee On and once again CONGRATULATIONS TO LOUISE!

Birthday Coinz and more!

We’re proud to announce the release of a limited number of 6th Birthday Comic Book Special coinz! These golden brass coins look awesome and are a great keepsake from a SUPER month. Those in attendance of our MHQ Birthday Bash will be the first to to have the chance to buy them, so be sure to RSVP.

6th Birthday Comic Book Coin

Along with the Birthday coinz we are also releasing a Recycle coin and a ZeeOps coin. Remember you can use coinz to track specific munzee captures which is perfect when hunting recycles or completing ZeeOps missions. The Recycle coin features the Munzee Recycle icon and the ZeeOps coin features the ZeeOps logo inlaid upon a super unique white metal. Both are great additions to any coin collection!

All three coinz will be available on Friday at MHQ Birthday Bash, but will then be for sale to the public Monday at 3 PM CST. Everyone should be on the lookout for even more items on sale Monday too!

We hope to see a bunch of our players at the event tomorrow, but either way we hope you all enjoy these awesome keepsakes!

Munzee on!

Matt’s Birthday Events Trip – Part 1

Hey, everyone!

Matt here, and I just wanted to talk about my trip to Wisconsin and Massachusetts this past weekend.

First off, I want to thank all of the hosts and attendees of the four events I visited. It’s always great to see old friends and meet new ones, and these events were great!

The events in Appleton were the first hosted in Wisconsin by MHQ staff, and I can guarantee we’ll be going back. Everyone was extremely accommodating and welcoming. From a wedding party crashing our group photo to receiving a gift to represent the cheese heads for my office, there was no shortage of fun during the weekend.

The next morning, I flew to Massachusetts just in time for an event at Kimball Farm. Players from states all down the east coast showed up to take up the challenge set by the hosts, and we all had a great time mingling and playing Munzee.

I can’t wait to see more players throughout the rest of the month! You can check out the full schedule of events that Rob and I will be attending on the podcast, but next up for me (after the MHQ birthday event) is Florida!

Munzee on!

Record Breaking Weekend!

Now that’s how you celebrate Birthday month!

Thanks to the might of our players we broke numerous Munzee records this weekend! With Matt and Rob attending events both nationally and internationally, and the rest of the team on deck we were ready for a big weekend, but once again our players have taken it to the next level.

On Saturday we clocked in an AMAZING 1,002,986 captures in a single day! The rest of the weekend was just as crazy with 511,567 on Friday and 789,303 on Sunday totaling over two million captures all weekend! We can’t even begin to show our gratitude to the players worldwide for helping us hit this milestone.

We also saw our largest Munzee Events EVER this weekend. Germany was the place to be with three events all with over 200 attendees! Saturday’s event in Bielefeld, Germany had 261 event indicator captures which is the largest event a Munzee player has ever hosted. We’ll need to step up our game for MHQ Bash! Rob will certainly have plenty to say about his European adventures when he gets back, so stay tuned to hear more.

Munzee meets OWL event in Paderborn, Germany.

We’d like to extend a BIG thank you to Scott, Daniel and the tech team for handling this huge weekend with zero downtime. As many of you know we’re always working hard to better our infrastructure, and tests like this showcase how far we’ve come.

Of course, thank you to all of our players worldwide for helping us continue to grow and exceed expectations! We can’t grow the game without you, so cheers to all!

Munzee on!

Munzee Newsletter: June 2017 Wrap-Up

We spent a lot of June preparing for Birthday month in July, but we were happy to make some big announcements too. Take a look back on some of the things that happened last month and what to expect this month as well!

Version 3.3.3 of the Munzee app was released in June. Make sure you have the most up to date version at the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store.

New Features/Fixes:

– We’ve added an in-app ZeeOps dashboard to track your operations.
– The main menu now features accompanying icons for all entries.
– Badge details now show the original description even after a badge has been earned.
– The coin discover request popup will now only show as toast message (transparent at the bottom) when not on the coins page.
– Improved scanner (focus issues for some phones are fixed)
– Minor fixes and improvements


 

Just Add Water! 

The floodgates have opened and the latest Elemental Munzee is now for sale- Welcome the Water Mystery Munzee!

This physical munzee type may hold the key to the Fountain of Youth, but it is not without its risks. When you cap the scattered water droplet you have the chance of drinking pure water, toxic water or salt water!

Purchase Water Mysteries and other Elementals in the Munzee Store!


 

Virtual Reality 

Wouldn’t it be great if you could easily swap out old virtual munzees in popular destinations for newer virtuals worth more points? Well now you can with the new Virt Swap tool! Using the Munzee website you can now go back to your older virtual type munzees and swap in new virtual types and MVMs.

Stock up on new MVMs in the Munzee Online Store!


 

Opposites Attract 

Can you feel the attraction? In June we revealed the Munzee Magnets as a part of July Physical MunzPaks! These brand new items are temporary credits you can use to attract Seasonal Specials and Mythological Munzees for a set amount of time. It’s easy, you just Magnetize a greenie of your choosing and that munzee will then attract up to 3 specials or myths for up to one hour!

Sign up for a Physical MunzPak and get 10 Magnet credits!


 

Garfield GO

Munzee was proud to work with our partner Freeze Tag to launch Garfield GO this month!

Garfield GO is a brand new augmented reality treasure hunting game, featuring everyone’s favorite lasagna-loving cat! Odie has scattered Garfield’s comic collection and buried treasures around the world — Help Garfield get them all back, while scavenging for hidden chests along the way!

The game is currently available in Australia, Canada, and the US via the App store and Google Play.


 

Coming in July…

– Spectacular 6th Birthday Comic Book Specials are on the map!

Introducing Munzee Magnets!

Can you feel the attraction? We’re proud to announce a new gameplay feature called Magnets!

These brand new items are temporary credits you can use to attract Seasonal Specials and Mythological Munzees for a set amount of time. It’s easy, you just Magnetize a greenie of your choosing and that munzee will then attract up to 3 specials or myths for up to one hour! The magnet expires at the end of the hour or after the 3rd capture.

Think of it like a temporary shamrock or elemental that also attracts seasonal specials like the Birthday Comic Book specials. So now if you live in a less populated Munzee area you can increase your chances of capping specials and myths!

Magnetizing a munzee from the app is easy!

  1. Choose the Greenie you want to magnetize.
  2. Go to the Munzee Details page.
  3. Click on the three dots icon in the upper righthand corner.
  4. Click “Magnetize” and confirm.
  5. Wait for the fun to begin!

You can also Magnetize a munzee from the web! 

  1. Go to munzee.com/map
  2. Click on the munzee you want to Magnetize and go to the Munzee’s page
  3. Scroll down and on the lower righthand side is a button that say “Magnetize”
  4. Click confirm and go find that Munzee!

Click the image to enlarge it.

A few things to note:

  • When a Magnetized munzee brings a special or a myth anyone can cap it, so be quick or be nice and share with friends!
  • You’ll be able to Magnetize munzees you have already capped as well as your own munzees since you can cap specials on those.
  • You can see how many Magnets you have on the Credits page of the app or web.
  • Magnets will go on sale in August. Premium Members can expect some magnetic attraction next month too.

Magnet credits are currently exclusive to Physical MunzPak subscribers until they go on sale next month. You’ll receive ten Munzee magnets in your July Physical MunzPak subscription so if you haven’t signed up do it NOW!

Even though the Magnets are currently exclusive to MunzPak subscribers, it’s our birthday so we wanted to share the love a bit. Event hosts who are throwing Munzee Birthday party packages will also have the opportunity to buy Magnets to be used at their events. This will help bring some fun for your Event guests! You need to email Louise if you are interested in adding these to your event but remember she is cycling this weekend so don’t expect an immediate response.

***Event Details Edit*** Magnets may be purchased by event hosts. They are added to the event account only and event pricing is $10 for 10 magnets (maximum of 10 per event account).

We’re excited to see how you all use Magnets to your advantage! Happy hunting and Munzee on!

Spectacular 6th Birthday Specials!

It’s hard to believe that it’s already been six years since Munzee was launched. It’s surpassed anything the co-founders could have imagined as a game, company, and community. As you probably have noticed, we tend to celebrate, especially our birthday. So take a peek at what we have going on for our Spectacular 6th Birthday!

Specials

Like most 6 year olds, we love comics and superheroes so be prepared to cap special comic books! Starting tomorrow (July 1st) at 00:01 MHQ time, 2011 Spectacular 6th Birthday Special icons will be on the map. These icons will bounce on greenies every 6 hours or when captured.

When captured, these will scatter three onomatopoeia icons within one mile for two hours or until capped.

Each of these are worth 17 Capture points and 11 CapOn points for the host owner. You CAN capture these on your own greenies, and all four specials will count towards the new Specials Badges line.

The scattered icons will also have another surprise. Each of the three icons will award a different badge. Your goal is to collect all three.

When you collect all three of the badges, you will also earn the completed comic book page.

Earned by capturing all three of the scattered icons.

These icons will be on the map until July 31st at 23:59 MHQ time.

Flat Robs and Flat Matts

As we noted in our latest podcast, Flat Robs and Flat Matts will spend quite a bit of time on the map during the month of July:

Flat Robs:

  • 1st-16th

  • 28th-31st

Flat Matts:

  • 1st-10th
