2020 Yearly Leaderboard Badges!

At first glance, Munzee seems like a pretty simple game. Scan physical munzees to get points. Tap on virtual munzees to get even more points. There are different types of physical munzees and different types of virtual munzees that award you with varying numbers of points. Simple, right?

What’s not so simple is how to stay on top of all the numerous active players! While more established players do have an advantage in terms of deployed munzees (rake in those CapOn points!), they face difficulties in finding munzees to cap, especially if they are active in Clan Wars! Taking advantage of special points days, active Flat Friends days, and other strategies are necessary to maintain or improve their ranking.

We started this badge line last year to recognize the hard work (and play!) from those on top. After such a tough year, it only seemed fitting to celebrate those who came out on top despite the odds. We are happy to make this a tradition and recognize the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place on the overall yearly leaderboard for 2020! These accomplished players are, as follows:

  1. humbird7
  2. dt07751
  3. hunniees

Congratulations to humbird7 for taking home the top spot this time, and to the King and Queen of Munzee for successfully swapping their positions! You may recall that we gave them a shoutout just after Thanksgiving, for a slightly different achievement!

We hope this year will remain Munzee-filled for these three, and that everyone else reaches for the stars — after all, this could be you next year!

Munzee On!

There’s Gnome Way You Wanna Miss out on This!

This year, we continued two traditions started in 2019: Monthly Streak Badges in the form of Exercise Resolutions, and a set of Monthly Rare Specials, in the form of 20/20 Vision Munzees. We also started a new tradition of Monthly POBs in the form of Funfinity Stones, which have become beloved characters in the game.

For 2021 we wanted to streamline things by linking all 3 together with a common theme!

Keeping this change in mind, we wanted to make sure we still incorporated the things that made each of them special.

  • For Monthly Streak Badges, it was all about staying healthy by maintaining good habits, just like maintaining your streak.
  • For Monthly Rare Specials, we wanted an ongoing collection that built up throughout the year centered around a central theme.
  • For Monthly POBs, we wanted a unified set of characters that felt like a family.

So what’s health-focused, fits within a central theme, and comes in a lot of varieties? Well garden gnomes playing sports obviously! 2020 was a slow year for sports and traveling (even the Olympic Games got pushed back!) so we’re sending garden gnomes on the road to compete for gold! We’re excited to announce Sporty Garden Gnomes are coming in 2021!

We’re not releasing all of the details just yet, but we did want to give everyone a heads up to start your capture streaks on January 1st!

Garden Gnomes

As usual you’ll want to capture at least one munzee* each day for the entire month to earn the reward. If you can make it through the whole month you’ll be awarded a badge and special item themed to that month’s activity! We’ll release more information on this special item and on how Monthly Rare Specials and Monthly POBs will be incorporated once we’re back in the office, but for now, here’s a sneak peek into what we have planned!

Please give a warm welcome to January’s Ice Hockey Gnome!

We know travel and sports are heavily limited right now, but we hope as you work towards this capture streak you can live vicariously through these charming gnomes! Perhaps you can find a way to watch or play your favorite sport** at home! We’re all in this together and if nothing else it will help you get one step closer to the yearlong capture and deploy streak badges. We’ll have a different gnome badge design each month, but try and keep up with your streak throughout the year! We believe in you!

We hope you’re excited to meet each month’s gnome and perhaps take home one of your own! Munzee on!

* In order to encourage active gameplay we will not count Social Munzees for these capture streaks. If you know you’ll be in an area without munzees plan ahead!

Zeecret Agent Competition Results!

And the winner is…

The P.I.N.E. Agency!

As they’ve been dominating the entire competition, this comes as no surprise… but we admire the effort that P.E.A.R. Agents put in as well, especially in the face of such a tough opponent! There were just under 2300 total agents at the end of the competition, we are excited about this level of participation!

Prizes

Now moving on to the part you’re probably most interested in — the prizes! Here’s what you will receive if you opted into an agency on CuppaZee prior to the end of the competition and were active at any point during the competition, based on how your agency ranked:

Support

We’ll be awarding the final prizes starting today, but as there were so many active players, it may take a while before you receive your badge and other prizes.

If, after a few days, you still haven’t received your final prizes, please e-mail support@munzee.com.

Focus on the Foundation of Any Exercise Routine With November 2020’s Resolution!

Have you been indulging in some Halloween candy that you were planning on passing out to trick-or-treaters this year? Or indulging in popular pumpkin spice-flavored treats? While there’s no need to deprive yourself of these sweets, make sure to save some room for foods that will help you meet your daily nutritional needs!

As we announced in our January Resolutions blog, we will be launching monthly Capture Streak Badges centered on a year of being active. Each month’s badge will be dedicated to practicing a different exercise. Similar to how our Super Streak badges operate, you will be awarded a badge if you capture at least one munzee* each day for the entire month. This month’s badge may be tricky to get, but we believe in you!

Each month’s badge will be themed around the particular resolution goal. For November, instead of a specific exercise, we’re highlighting the importance of a healthy diet! While you can certainly enjoy healthy foods via juicing as shown in the badge art below, don’t feel obligated to try it, especially if it would require you to purchase a new appliance. As we’re sure you already know, there’s more to health than kale smoothies!

Why has juicing gotten so popular?

Veggies seem like they take a lot of prep work since, generally, you need to wash them, remove inedible/unappetizing  parts, and finally, chop them up before you can start cooking them. That’s quite a bit more manual labor than shaking a box of dried pasta into a pot of boiling water or dumping a chunk of meat into a hot oiled pan. Because of this, the appeal of juicing is understandable — after doing all that prep work, you just pop the veggie bits into a juicer and you’re good to go!

But, if you prefer your veggies cooked, it doesn’t take that much more effort to do so — a lot of veggies taste great with minimal cooking. For example, Brussels sprouts are one of the most disliked vegetables here in the US, but they’re actually quite tasty when they’re simply sautéed or stir-fried with a bit of olive oil or butter, and seasoned with salt and pepper. The only thing to watch out for is overcooking them, which would give them a bitter taste. Once you see a bit of caramelization, quickly remove them from the pan! Green beans and sweet potatoes can be prepared this way as well, and instead of using the stove, you could also roast them for a short time in the oven. If you feel like going to a little more effort, adding some minced garlic to cook alongside these veggies is sure to be a success. What are some other simple but tasty ways to prepare vegetables that you recommend?

Before you attempt any exercise, it’s always a good idea to consult your doctor**. Good luck and Munzee on!

* In order to encourage active gameplay we will not count Social Munzees for these capture streaks. If you know you’ll be in an area without munzees, plan ahead!

The Zeecret Agents Competition is Back!

Agents, we’ve clearly underestimated the strength of the P.I.N.E. Agency. In the hopes of keeping the competition fun for both agencies until our planned end date, we needed a bit more time to make the next set of changes, and brainstorm further additions that you may see in future rounds! For the next round, we’ve made some adjustments to the point values and types that can affect agency HP. You can find a breakdown below:

This will also be reflected on CuppaZee’s Zeecret Agents Competition page. You can check out the state of the competition at any time there, or join an agency if you’re late to the party.

Time For Some Good GREEN Fun With A New Competition!

Agents, here is some more intel on that special assignment we announced on Wednesday — if you were on the fence about joining then, perhaps this brief will help you decide.

Zeecret Agents Competition

It’s time to show that you’re ready to become a ZeeOps Agent through a little friendly competition from now until Sunday, November 8, 2020 at 23:59 MHQ. Similar to our Competing Camp Specials we’re splitting you up to compete as worldwide teams! This time though, there are only two teams — the P.E.A.R Agency vs the P.I.N.E. Agency– and things will work a little differently.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to work with other agents to whittle down the enemy agency’s hit points and maintain or increase your own agency’s hit points for each round. If you accept this mission, head over to the opt-in link on CuppaZee HERE to find out which agency you’ve been assigned to.

Round Rules

For the first round each agency begins with 1,000 hit points. Each team can max out to 2,500 hit points in round one as well. Maxing out hit points does not mean your team wins that round. A round will end as soon as one team’s health reaches 0 HP or after 5 days. If 5 days pass, the team with the highest remaining health will be given the win. Rounds are then reset, giving both agencies full hit points again.

A new round will begin each time an agency is KO’d until the competition ends. Please note that not all rounds may begin with the same base points. Some rounds may have higher hit point counts. After the competition ending time, the final round will continue until it ends, as normal. If the final round ends and both teams have won the same amount of rounds, there will be a final rapid decider round, with a low starting HP.

Here is a breakdown of which actions will increase your agency’s hit points, and which will decrease the enemy agency’s hit points. You might notice a few new types on this list too! You can learn more about Pear Bombs and Pineamite below, but stay tuned for the Spyderbot and Laser Pen reveals soon!

CAPTURES
Add 5 points to your team Spyderbot
Add 3 points to your team P.E.A.R. Agent
P.I.N.E. Agent
Add 2 points to your team Pear
Pecan
Acorn
Add 1 point to your team Briefcase
Night Vision Goggles
Laser Pen
Subtract 10 points from the other team Squashed Spyderbot
Subtract 5 points from the other team Bowling – 2nd Roll
Subtract 1 point from the other team Physical Pear Bomb
Virtual Pear Bomb
Physical Pineamite
Virtual Pineamite
Dossier
Infrared Virtual
Laser Trail 1
Laser Trail 2
Laser Trail 3
DEPLOYS
Add 10 points to your team Spyderbot
Add 2 points to your team Briefcase
Subtract 1 point from other team Night Vision Goggles
Subtract 5 points from other team Laser Pen

*We may change these values between rounds in order to improve gameplay.

Bomb MOBs

Agents from both P.E.A.R. and P.I.N.E. have left surprises around the world and it’s up to you to defuse them! There will be 500 Pear Bomb and Pineamite MOBs on the map for the entirety of the competition. That breaks down to 125 of each type in physical form, and likewise in virtual form. These are attracted to Magnets. Ironically, none of these specials are blastable.

As noted above, for the competition leaderboard each Pear Bomb and Pineamite capture will subtract 1 point from your enemy team. Please note that this is different than the actual capture points a player will earn. This secondary point structure is just for tallying the competition leaderboard for those who are playing.

Landing Pads:

Bounce Time:

  • every 4 hours

Points:

  • Capture: 111
  • CapOn: 50

Zeecret Agents tPOBs

In addition to the Pear Bomb and Pineamite there will also be rare P.E.A.R. Agent and P.I.N.E. Agent Specials bouncing around the map! They are already out there lurking around on the map and more Agents may be unleashed as Agency Heads see fit! These are attracted to both Physical or Virtual Magnets on their respective landing pads. These are officially tPOBs on a Munzee account and are not blastable.

As noted above, since these are more rare each Agent capture will add 3 points to your own team on the competition leaderboard. Again, please note that this is different than the actual capture points a player will earn. This secondary point structure is just for tallying the competition leaderboard.

Landing Pads:

Bounce Times:

  • every 4 hours

Points:

  • Capture: 250
  • CapOn: 100

Badges

There are a number of badges related to the Zeecret Agents Competition specials:

  • Team Badge- Think of it as a Membership Badge! These badges feature your agency’s crest so wear it with pride!
  • Earn the Explosives Expert badge by capping at least one of each Bomb and Agent special.
  • There are three badges based on overall Bomb and Agent special captures. Cap as many as you can to earn these badges!
  • There will also be badges based on the outcome of the competition. We’ll keep those a secret for now 😉

You can sneak a peek at the team badges below:
