The Cyclops Mythological!

We’re proud to announce the final Classical Mythological Munzee: The odorous, uni-ocular Cyclops!

On Cyber MunzDay, November 27th at 10:00 MHQ time, 1,600 Cyclops Mythological Munzees will be available in the Munzee Online Store for $20.00 each. Like the other Mythologicals, each player is limited to one (1) Cyclops Munzee per account, and the sale is open to anyone regardless of other Mythological ownership.

Although other Myths like the Faun and Hydra land on specific physical Elemental Munzees, the Cyclops is a much greedier creature. So greedy in fact that the Cyclops bounces on greenies as well as both physical and virtual Jewel Munzees!

The Cyclops will bounce on the following every 12 hours or when capped:

  • Greenies
  • Amethyst (V)
  • Sapphire (V)
  • Diamond
  • Ruby
  • Pink Diamond
  • Topaz
  • Aquamarine

Cyclops Munzees will also be attracted to Magnets, which you can attach to greenies to increase your odds of finding myths and specials.

Details:

Name: The Cyclops

Description: The Cyclops Munzee bounces on greenies and all Jewel Munzees (except Emeralds) every 12 hours or when capped. Each is numbered and owned by a Munzee player. Only 1 Cyclops Munzee is allowed per account. You will also earn the Cyclops badge for owning a Cyclops Munzee.

Points:

  • Deploy: 100
  • Capture: 100
  • CapOn: 100

There is also a line of badges for capturing unique Cyclops Munzees.

We’ve got a lot of great sales going on for Cyber Munzday, so be sure to swing by the store and load up on Jewels, Elementals and more!

Munzee on!

World Diabetes Day 2017 Special

First off, we want to thank everyone who has participated in our Diabetes Awareness Charity Special. We’ve had a great response to the specials, and the stories that have been shared are very special. We love seeing how Munzee helps our community.

Before the charity specials leave the map, we’ve got one more surprise up our sleeves.

World Diabetes Day Special

Starting tomorrow (November 14th) at 15:00 MHQ time, 2,017 World Diabetes Day bouncing specials will be on the map. These specials will bounce on greenies every 6 hours or when capped, and will be attracted by Magnets. The points for these specials are as follows:

Capture – 14
CapOn (for host owner) – 11

You will also earn the World Diabetes Day 2017 badge for capturing one of these specials.

World Diabetes Day 2017 Badge

These specials will leave the map along with the Diabetes Awareness Charity Specials on Sunday, November 19th at 23:59 MHQ time.


We will also be selling Diabetes Awareness Personal Munzees beginning at 15:00 MHQ time tomorrow. The website link will be live at that time.

These Personal Munzees include the Diabetes Awareness Charity Special icon on the front and the World Diabetes Day 2017 special badge on the back. They are printed on PVC key tags, making them lightweight and durable. A limited number of these will be available for $10 each, and there is a limit of one per username.

We hope you enjoy this new special icon as well as the new Personal Munzees.

Munzee on!

Introducing the Gnome Leprechaun!

Last month in celebration of MHQ Bash we introduced the first AlternaMyth- The Rainbow Unicorn. Well our colorful buddy now has a new friend bouncing around and causing mischief- The Gnome Leprechaun!

In the spirit of friendship we have deployed Gnome Leprechauns for both Team Munzee and our pals over at Freeze Tag! So there are now 26 Gnome Leprechauns bouncing around the map. We have also added a Rainbow Unicorn for each Freeze Tag team member bringing the total to 26.

AlternaMyths are Mythological Munzees deployed on behalf of members of Team Munzee exclusively. You’ll get 200 points for capping the Gnome Leprechaun. Owners of the host munzee will also earn double the points of normal Leprechauns (e.g. if the Gnome Leprechaun lands on a Shamrock, the owner will receive 34 points; if it lands on a greenie, the owner will earn 12 points).

Like normal Leprechauns the Gnome bounces to greenies and shamrocks every 12 hours, but as a fan of gardens they will also be attracted to Earth Mystery Munzees. You can also pull one of these rare globetrotters closer to you with a Munzee Magnet

Good luck on hunting down these traveling Gnomes and remember to leave a picture for us!

Munzee on!

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!

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!

Munzee Newsletter: August 2017 Wrap-Up

Although August usually tends to be a cool down after July’s big birthday month, this year we kept very busy! We gave our players a hand, flew high in the sky and even started treasure hunting. Take a look back on some of the things that happened last month and what to expect this month as well!

A HUGE thank you is in order to all of our players worldwide! Our community pulled together to help out after the devastating effects of Hurricane Harvey in South Texas. Through the sale of Water Mysteries and Assorted Mini Packs, as well as WallaBee Mixers, we gathered $7,500 in donations for relief efforts.

We can’t express how proud we are to have such a great community that rallies around those in need. Thank you, again, for your support and generosity.


Leftie Loosy

To celebrate International Left Handers Day and all of our left-handed players, we released a fun special at the beginning of the month! The Leftie Specials bounced all over the globe and to recognize the 10% of the population that is left handed these specials also had a 10% chance of scattering a Left Handed Thumbs Up icon.

The Thumbs Up were pretty rare to come by, but Munzee Magnets helped out!


High Flyers

This month the majestic Pegasus Mythological Munzee took to the skies. Although other Myths like the Faun and Hydra land on Greenies and specific physical Elemental Munzees, the Pegasus is a different kind of beast. The Pegasus bounces on all colors of Virtual Munzees, Mystery Virtual Munzees, and MVMs as well as Air Mystery Munzees.

Air Mystery Munzees are currently available in the Munzee Online Store! 


Treasure Tropes

Avast, me hearties! This month we announced the new Treasure Evolution Munzee as a Munzee reseller exclusive! Our resellers are great at promoting and being ambassadors for Munzee and its community so thank you to them for helping us grow the game! Like other Evolution Munzees, the Treasure Munzee consists of three stages and evolves over time.

Purchase Treasure Munzees through one of our Munzee Resellers! 


Bodacious Badges

We released a ton of new badges last month!

The elementals stormed in with Earth, Water and Air Mystery badges.

You’ll be going Places with the new Places Munzee Streak badges as well as the expanded Places Capture badges.

With the release of the Pegasus we expanded all of the various badges for capturing Myths.


September News:

– We’re going ALL IN!

– Stay in shape, fight Fit.

– All the colors of the Rainbow.

The Leftie Specials will bounce on greenies every 6 hours or when captured. To celebrate the 10% of the population that is left handed these specials will also have a 10% chance of scattering a Left Handed Thumbs Up icon.

Points for these specials are as follows:

  • Left Handed Icon: Split of 76 points between the capture and the host owner with a minimum of 19

Munzee Newsletter: July 2017 Wrap-Up

Birthday month has come and gone and with the help of our players we celebrated six years in a very big way! Take a look back on some of the things that happened last month and what to expect this month as well!

We ended Birthday Month with some HUGE news: Munzee and our partner Freeze Tag Inc. are merging companies! For the last year, Munzee and Freeze Tag have been working together in various ways on Garfield GO! and as the saying goes “two heads are better than one.” The leadership team at Freeze Tag are top notch guys with vast experience in building apps and bringing in new players.

We are excited to see their team join the Munzee family and help us all Grow the Game(s)!


Birthday BAM!

To celebrate 6 spectacular years, we released Comic Book special icons for the entire month. When captured the specials scattered three onomatopoeia icons- BAM!, POW! and BANG! Players who managed to capture all 3 were able to earn a special comic book panel badge too!

These alongside the Munzee Magnets were an awesome way to kick off Birthday Month!


Extraordinary Events 

Birthday Events were a huge hit last month! There were 110 events that took place throughout July and the 6th Birthday Super Rob special was capped an amazing 4,673 times! We also reached new highs with the events in Germany being the first to hit over 250 attendees, something we haven’t even done at MHQ! Thank you to all of our awesome Event Hosts!

Remember, you can host your own events by submitting them HERE!


Oh, The Places You’ll Go! 

Last month we were proud to announce that Places Munzeesare now available to the public for purchase! Now players can deploy their own Airports, Sports Stadiums, Wildlife and Museum munzees all across the world.

You can purchase Places Munzees in the Munzee Online Store!


A Breath of Fresh Air 

At the tailend of Birthday Month we were proud to announce the creation of the Air Mystery Munzee! This virtual Elemental Munzee is the first of it’s kind and is currently exclusive to Virtual MunzPak subscribers in August. When capped, the Air Mystery Munzee scatters three temporary virtual Feathers. When those feathers are captured, they have a chance of throwing three ultra rare temporary virtual Golden Feathers.

You can still sign up for August’s Virtual MunzPak HERE!


August News:
