The Pegasus Mythological!

We’re proud to announce the latest in the Classical Mythology set of munzees, the high-flying Pegasus!

On Tuesday, August 15th at 15:00 MHQ time, 1,600 Pegasus 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) Pegasus 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 Greenies and specific physical Elemental Munzees, the Pegasus is a different kind of beast. The Pegasus will bounce on all colors of Virtual Munzees, Mystery Virtual Munzees, and MVMs as well as Air Mystery Munzees every 12 hours or when captured. Because this Mythological is attracted to so many different kinds of virtuals it will not be attracted to Munzee Magnets.

Details:

Name: The Pegasus

Description: The Pegasus Munzee bounces on all colors of Virtual Munzeess, Mystery Virtual Munzees, and MVMs as well as Air Mystery Munzees every 12 hours or when capped. Each is numbered and owned by a Munzee player. Only 1 Pegasus Munzee is allowed per account. You will also earn the Pegasus badge for owning a Pegasus Munzee.

Points:

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

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

To celebrate the release of the Pegasus, we’re also putting 100 more of each past Mythological Munzee for sale on August 15th at 15:00 MHQ time. These will still be limited to one per player account, so if you have one you will not be able to get another. We’ve seen a lot of new players join recently, so here is your chance to own a growing part of the game.

Thank you to everyone for their excitement regarding the Mythological Munzees. Be on the lookout to find a Pegasus near you! Munzee on!

Earth Mystery Badges!

When we released the Earth Mystery Munzees, we said badges would be released soon.

Well, soon is a very vague term, and since then, we have released Water AND Air Mysteries! So, excuse our tardiness, but we’re happy to announce some new badges lines are coming out in the near future. To kick things off, we’ve gotten in touch with our roots for some awesome Earth Mystery Munzee badges!

You can now earn badges for deploying and capturing Earth Mystery Munzees. All of these badges will be retroactive and don’t forget that when you cap Earth Mysteries they turn on Recycles, which also have their own badge line. You can purchase Earth Mystery Munzees in the online store.

Deploy

Capture

All of the badges are currently available to earn, so get out there and help out Fauns and Munzee Mother Nature. Have fun, and Munzee on!

ZeeOps: August Missions

Garfield Virtual Icons and The Tourism Filter!

With Matt and Rob en route to Munzee, IN, we’re excited to offer some more details on the virtual Garfield icons that will be available!

These virtual icons are located at each of the Garfield statues in Muncie, IN and Grant County. Garfields will be released at the Saturday morning event at McCulloch Park. You’ll earn 78 points for each Garfield statue captured, which is based on the year Garfield was first published- 1978. Even if you can’t make it to Muncie for the events this weekend, the Garfield virtual icons will be permanent, so stop by on your travels and enjoy some time with the fat cat in the future.

We’re also introducing a new Tourism filter that will include Garfield virtual icons and the Texas Historical Markers. We hope to expand to more tourism destinations soon, so stay tuned for more in the future.

There will also be an Eventzee photo scavenger hunt connected to all of the unique Garfield statues for the weekend. You can scan that join code at the Saturday morning event as well. Say (lasagna) cheese!

We hope you’re all as excited as we are to celebrate Munzee’s 6th birthday in Muncie! Matt and Rob will also be joined by Daniel “hksfarm” Hammock and Dale n’ Barb from Spacecoast Geo Store, so come join members of Team MHQ and the lasagna loving Garfield for what’s sure to be a fun weekend.

Munzee on!

Introducing Photo Galleries!

When we released Munzee 3.0 in 2015, we added the ability for players to add pictures at location of Munzees. So for nearly two years our players have gathered quite the collection of photos while munzeeing. Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to see all of those photos in one collected place? Well you’re in luck!

We’re proud to announce that you can now access a photo gallery of images you have taken and attached to Munzees! To access a player’s gallery just go to their online profile and click “More” to access the photo gallery. There you can scroll through and check out some of their greatest hits!

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!

How To Deploy Places Munzees

UPDATE: 

We’ve had a great response to Places Munzees, but to help both our players and our approvers we’ve put together some more defined guidelines for deploying. Go HERE to learn more!


With Places munzees now open to all players, we wanted to go into detail about how the deployment process will work. Currently players can deploy Airports, Sports Stadiums, Wildlife and the new Museum Places munzees all across the world.

Players can deploy their Places munzee from the online Munzee map. Remember that only one Places munzee may be deployed at each location, so you may have to get creative with where you deploy these. Once you deploy the munzee it will then be sent to an MHQ staff member for approval. Places deploys will be approved within 24-48 hours, but these are manually approved, so please be patient. Once your deploy is approved or denied you’ll receive an email notification.

You can watch the video below to see it in action: 

Points:
Deploy: 25
Capture: 10
Cap-On: 5

A few notes:

  • Places munzees must be at least 1 mile apart from one another, no matter the type (museum, airport, etc.).
  • You cannot cap your own Places munzee.
  • You will deploy Places munzees from your account, so you will get the points when people cap it. These may be capped by players once per MHQ 24 hour time period so there is potential for a lot of cap-on points.
  • Places munzees are not blastable.
  • Each* has a 1,000 ft capture radius. (*This does not include airports which have a 1 mile capture radius.)
  • Can be captured once per 24 hour MHQ day by players.
  • There are a limited amount of each type of Places munzees for sale.
  • Places munzees will cost $10 each and players are limited to one of each type.
  • If your Places munzee deploy is declined, you will receive a brief explanation as to why in the followup email.
  • Even if your location was available at the time of deployment it may be taken by another player who selected that location before you.
  • If your Places Munzee deploy is denied, you’ll still be able to resubmit, but please consider the notes the approver listed for the denial.

All four Places munzees will be for sale, in limited quantities, on Monday July 17th at 15:00 MHQ in the online Munzee Store. Happy Birthday month and 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…
