Introducing the Virtual Swap!

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!

We’re excited to announce that you can now easily swap out many virtual munzees!

Using the Munzee website you can now go back to your older virtual type munzees and swap in new virtual types and MVMs. By using the Virt Swap tool, you can instantly archive your old virtual type munzee and deploy the new one in the exact same spot. No waiting periods and no losing your spot! This also opens up the opportunity for players to re-capture high density areas, if new virtuals are deployed.

With the Virt Swap tool almost any virtual type can be replaced by almost any virtual type.**

For example, you can swap an old green virtual for a new virtual sapphire in the exact same location. You could also swap an old yellow mystery virtual for a new MVM and add a yellow color credit. It’s good as new and ready for people to come and cap it! Imagine the cap on points you will receive with the strategically placed MVM versus the old virtual points.

Please note that when you swap out an old virtual you must use a new munzee that has not been previously deployed. Since you’re swapping out for a totally new munzee the points for the old virt captures will not change.

To celebrate the release of this new tool MVMs are on sale for $4 and for every MVM purchased you’ll get a free color credit as well. Go to the Munzee Online Store and stock up now! 

To swap out a virtual just do the following:

  1. Go to your online Munzee profile.
  2. Go to your undeployed munzees and copy the number code from the replacement virtual item URL.
  3. Go to your deployed munzees and choose the virtual you want to replace.
  4. Click “Edit Details,” scroll down and paste the new number code in the specified area.

Check out the video below to see the Virt Swap in action (you may need to pause and rewind to fully get it):

**You cannot change any of the following munzees using the Virt Swap tool:

All Physicals
All MHQ created Virtual Gardens
Social
Event Pin
Virtual Emerald
Personal Munzee
Event Indicator
Virtual Trail

6th Birthday Events UPDATE

Hello from a swelteringly hot London!

I hope you’re all getting excited about July and all the 6th Birthday events. There are 80 on the calendar to choose from! It’s not too late to get your events on there, it’s quite late for artwork though, our designers’ diaries are full to bursting and we can only accommodate pretty simple requests for July at this stage I’m afraid.

Trish has recently finished the badges for attending and hosting, they are SUPER! Here is a sneak preview for you. There are 4 host badges up for grabs, the Super Scott, Super Matt, Super Trish and Super Dylan. I’m on the Attendee Badge and there is an icon featuring Super Rob for everyone who goes to a Birthday event and captures the Event Indicator Pin.

Don’t forget that Dan the Man will be giving freebies to all attendees when they capture the event badge if the host has opted for that $20 extra and there will be surprises thrown in for all Birthday events as per usual, don’t miss out, plan your event today!

Stay safe and Munzee On!

Introducing Elemental Munzee Badges!

We’re excited to announce the release of a new line of badges for capturing Elemental Munzees! Do you think you can harness the energy of the world’s elements?

You can earn these badges by capturing Fire, Ice and Earth Munzees… and maybe something else soon.

The first of three badges is for beginners of the Elemental Arts and you can earn it by capturing 100 Elementals of any kind. All of the Elemental Munzee badges are retroactive, but they will remain hidden until you unlock the requirements for the next badge. The badges will go live at 00:01 MHQ on Thursday June 15th.

You can help out your fellow players with their caps and purchase an Elemental Munzee Pak HERE

Good luck on your journey to master the elements! Munzee on!

Munzee’s Monthly Giveaway Video Contest!

You may know Daniel Hammock as “hksfarm,” “Support,” or “The Ban Hammer” of Munzee, but did you know he’s quite the Youtube video connoisseur?

Hksfarm hosts the “Munzee’s Monthly Giveaway” video contest where players around the world submit Munzee-themed videos for a chance to win prizes. If you haven’t already you should join his Facebook group and join in on the fun!

The rules are simple:

  • hksfarm posts the theme for month in the “Munzee’s Monthly Giveaway” Facebook group.
  • Players film and edit a Munzee video relating to that theme and upload it to Youtube.
  • Once it’s uploaded, players share it in the Facebook group and their name will be added into the prize drawing.
  • On the last day of the month, submissions will be final and hksfarm will draw a name from those that submitted a video. 

In addition for a chance to win prizes, players will also earn a sweet Unicorn badge for participating and the winner will receive the coveted Golden Unicorn badge! To qualify for the badge and giveaway, videos MUST be on YouTube.com and link posted in a separate post, also post your username. No skill or expensive camera equipment are needed because the final drawing is random. 

This month’s challenge is to share a video of a deployed munzee in the dark with the moon in the footage, so get ready to adventure through the night!

Munzee Newsletter: May 2017 Wrap-Up

In May Munzee was busy moving into our new offices, but that’s not to say we didn’t keep our players busy too. Take a look back on some of the things that happened last month and what to expect this month as well!

We’ve spent the last couple months getting the ALL NEW Munzee Headquarters up and running! We have upgraded our offices to a much larger space which is ideal for our constantly growing staff. The new building is located just a few miles from our previous headquarters too, so we still get to call McKinney, TX home.

Some of our players helped us break in the new location with our MH-New Open House event and they even got to see us monkeying around first hand!


Flat Matt Has Hit The Map! 

In November 2015 Flat Rob was released and he’s been traveling the world ever since. All that travel can be a bit lonely though, so we’re excited to release a similarly two-dimensional friend- Flat Matt!

Although Flat Rob comes out to play when Rob is traveling, Flat Matts will be live on the map during days with specific sporting events.


Hail Hydra

The Hydra is the latest Mythological Munzee, and the second in our Classical Myth line. Not much is known about this many-headed beast, although it is said to guard the fabled Fountain Of Youth.

Find a Hydra near you on the Specials Map! 


Victorious Vacation

The new Timeshare Munzee is the latest in our Destination line of munzees alongside the Motel, Hotel and Virtual Resort. This physical credit item features 5 Rooms so the first 5 players to cap the Timeshare get a room deployed. Here’s the kicker though, Rooms only stay deployed for 30 days!

Join Rockin’ Rob Vardeman and get your Timeshare in the Munzee Store TODAY!


Totally Tubular Turtles

To celebrate World Turtle Day on May 23rd, Munzee released turtle specials from May 19th through the 28th. These shell-shocking specials were a big hit and helped raise awareness about our slow-crawling friends.

Show your support and buy a World Turtle Day Coin HERE! 


Coming in June…

– We’ve gone green to try and clean up the map.

– Don’t forget to keep hydrated.

Flat Matt has hit the map!

Flat Matts are now officially for sale in the Munzee Online Store! Flat Matt virtual credits are $5 each and we have also decreased the price of Flat Robs to $4. You can purchase them both HERE! (Side Note: Timeshares are also for sale HERE!)

Although Flat Rob comes out to play when Rob is traveling, Flat Matts will be live on the map during days with specific sporting events. Flat Matt is a big fan of all sorts of sports, but he is especially fond of teams in the Dallas-Fort Worth, TX area. To kick things off, Flat Matt is spending the weekend watching baseball with Flat Rob so both will be on the map from now until Sunday, June 4th at 23:59 MHQ.

To give you a bit of an idea of when Flat Matt will be on the map, here is the schedule for the month of June:

2017-06-01 12:00:00 – 2017-06-04 23:59:59
2017-06-06 00:00:01 – 2017-06-07 23:59:59
2017-06-16 00:00:01 – 2017-06-22 23:59:59

Please note that all scheduled times are based on MHQ time and are subject to change.

Here is the general breakdown of Flat Matts:

Points:

Deploy – 19 Points
Cap/CapOn – Split 92 points with a minimum of 10 points.

Proximity: 

Flat Matts’ proximity is not affected by other munzees except other Flat Matts and Flat Robs. Flat Matts must be 50ft from other players’ deploys and 150ft from your own deploys.

You’ll also be able to earn a variety of badges for capturing and deploying Flat Matts.

Thank you all for showing Flat Matt and Flat Rob a good time on their travels! Munzee on!
