August 9, 2017

International Left Handers Day Specials!

Lefties Unite! To celebrate International Left Handers Day and all of our left-handed players, we’ve put together a fun new special for the weekend. Starting at 00:01 MHQ on Friday August 11th, 1,976 Left Handed icons will be on the map until  23:59 MHQ on Sunday August 13th.

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
  • Left Handed Thumbs Up Icon: 76 points for Capture and CapOn

You can also earn a badge for capturing both the Left Handed Special and the Left Handed Thumbs Up.

Remember that these will count towards the Specials Badges and you can use Magnets to draw them out. You can also capture these specials on your own munzees.

Thank you to all of our players and especially all the lefties out there! Munzee on!

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:

– Master the elements with new Elemental Munzee badges!

– High-flying fun is on the way.

– Thumbs up are in order.

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…

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:

Flat Matts:

  • 1st-10th
