Announcing Secret Admirer Specials!

Love is in the air and it seems you all have a secret admirer or two! Who could it possibly be? The only way to find out is to collect their heart pieces and reveal your true love!

2,800 Secret Admirer Specials will be on the map from 00:01 MHQ time on Tuesday, February 13th through Sunday, February 18th at 23:59. There will be a total of 4 heart pieces (700 of each on the map) and by collecting at least one of each corresponding piece (each side of the heart) you’ll earn a badge for that set.

Since it’s mystery as to who these secret admirers could be, these specials will work a bit differently. The Secret Admirer Specials will bounce on MVMs, Mysteries, Mini Mysteries, and Greenies every 6 hours or when capped. Since these specials bounce on both physical and virtual game pieces, both Munzee Magnets and Virtual Magnets will attract these icons.

Points:

  • Capture – 28
  • CapOn for host owners – 14

Per usual these will also count toward the Special Hunter badge line and you can cap them on your own munzees so be sure to cap as many as you can!

We hope this season is full of love- even if it’s just the love of the game! Happy Valentine’s Day and enjoy this lovely new special. Munzee on!

International “Thank You” Day Specials!

Rob realized writing individual “Thank You” notes to everyone wasn’t exactly feasible, so we decided to go in a different direction. In celebration of International Thank You Day, we’re proud to announce we’re celebrating in the best way possible: By sending out “Thank You” cards! Over the next few days you’ll be able to capture “Thank You” note specials from Louise, Rob and Matt.

“Thank You” cards from Louise, Matt and Rob!

The International Thank You Day specials will go live on the map at 00:01 Thursday January 11th and last through 23:59 on Sunday January 14th. There will be 1,000 of each of the icons (3,000 in total) bouncing on greenies every 6 hours or when capped. When you cap any of these icons, you will earn 18 points, and the owner of the host munzee will earn 11 points.

We know what you’re thinking: What good is a “Thank You” card if you can’t read what’s inside? Well when you capture one of the icons you’ll also earn the badge for that “Thank you” note and get to see what the cards says. Will you be able to capture all three?

Per usual these will also count toward the Special Hunter badge line, so be sure to cap as many as you can! You can capture these specials on your own munzees and they will all be attracted to Magnets.

Thank you once again to our awesome community of players! We couldn’t do all of this without you and we’re so thankful to have you as a part of our game. Now get out and Munzee on, because #TheTimeIsNow!

Find Your Footing With The Sasquatch Yeti!

This holiday season we’re proud to announce a new friendly fellow has joined The Rainbow UnicornGnome Leprechaun, and Ice Dragon. Welcome The Sasquatch Yeti, the final phase one AlternaMyth! He’s a bit more down to Earth than his furry cousin, but he’s still as cool as can be.

As with the other AlternaMyths these Mythological Munzees are deployed on behalf of our HQ staff’s accounts, thus super rare. You’ll get 200 points for capping The Sasquatch Yeti. Owners of the host munzee will also earn double the points of normal Yetis.

Similar to normal Yetis, this large footed fellow bounces to Greenies and Ice Mystery Munzees every 12 hours, but as a forest dweller he’s also attracted to Earth Mystery Munzees. You can make it one (large) step easier and use a Munzee Magnet as wellCapturing Sasquatch Yetis will count towards the Myth Collector badges too.

We also have Sasquatch Yeti (as well as all of the other Myths and AlternaMyths) decals in the Munzee Online Store.

Good luck chasing these furry forest friends!

Christmas 2017 Special

Christmas is right around the corner, and people around the world are getting ready to celebrate. For some, that means bundling up and getting ready to play in the snow. For others, shorts and a t-shirt will be the attire of the season. Our Christmas special accounts for both of those groups.

Beginning now (15:00 MHQ time on December 15th), 1009 Sun icons and 1009 Snowflake icons (2018 in total) will be on the map. These specials will bounce on greenies every 6 hours or when capped. When you cap either of these icons, you will earn 20 points, and the owner of the host munzee will earn 18 points. These icons will leave the map at 23:59 MHQ time on Sunday, December 31st.

There are three badges that can be earned during this special:

  • Winter Wonderland – Capture at least one (1) Snowflake icon.

  • Christmas in the Sun – Capture at least one (1) Sun icon.

  • Wacky Weather Christmas – Cap at least one (1) Snowflake icon and at least one (1) Sun icon.

These icons are attracted by Magnets, you CAN capture these icons on your own munzees, and these will count toward the Special Hunters badge line.

We hope you enjoy this special! Have fun capping!

Munzee on!

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!

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!
