June Resolutions Badge Details

Our monthly Capture Streak badges have been centered around a year of personal improvement through highlighting different monthly resolutions. This month we’re challenging players to save money for the June Resolutions badge.

Each month’s unique badge is dedicated to accomplishing another New Year’s Resolution. Like our Super Streak badges, you will be awarded a badge if you capture at least one Munzee* each day for the entire month. The monthly Capture Streak badges allow for the chance to work towards a different goal each month in order to bring about a year of positive growth and change.

Tips for Saving

While some are naturally skilled in the art of restraint, others need more motivation to hold themselves back from bleeding their wallets dry. However, no matter how careless you might be with your spending, it is entirely possible to reverse your financial situation by adhering to ways to save money. To maximize your long-term profits, take advantage of interest when moving around bank account assets. Take inventory of the items you have accumulated over the years, and rather than continue to add to the collection, consider what you can sell. There’s a good chance you can profit from scarcely used items in your possession.

Instead of purchasing items when the mood strikes, carefully plan your shopping endeavors. Collect coupons, sign up for rewards programs, and stock up during seasonal sales. Purchase items in their off-season, and plan ahead for holiday shopping. For example, it will be far more cost effective to purchase winter apparel at the end of the cold season and save it for the next year if you know you’ll be needing a new coat in the future. Be thrifty with your spending, and don’t leave important purchases or gifts for the last minute. By planning ahead, you can secure the most desirable prices rather than shell out extra cash for a last minute need.

Stick to your shopping list, and restrain from impulse purchases. Decide which nights you want to go out, and stick to a set budget when you do so or plan social outings around discount nights. Take care of the items that you do have, and invest in high quality, long-lasting items rather than disposable trendy apparel. Be conscious of how much money you spend on take out and eating away from home and how often you waste electricity. Investing in smart appliances is a great way to lower bills and help the environment.

No, you won’t be able to take your money to the grave. But with life being so unpredictable, you never know when some extra savings could be your saving grace. Additionally, by abstaining from giving in to momentary purchases and whims, you can save your hard-earned money for things that matter, like visiting a faraway friend or relative or doing something that you’ve dreamed of. Avoid hardship down the line and open the possibility for more opportunities by being a bit more reserved with your spending.

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!

March Resolution Badge Details!

How comfortable are you with getting outside of your comfort zone? What skills have you been meaning to sharpen? Our monthly Capture Streak Badges are centered on a year of self-improvement, and March is no different. While January focused on eating healthy and February involved making new friends, March will be the month of picking up new hobbies!

Underwater sweater knitting, anyone?

Each month’s badge will be dedicated to accomplishing a different New Year’s Resolution. 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. Even if you missed out on the last two months, it’s never too late to get in on the healthy and happy living! The extra Munzee badge is just an added bonus.

The Importance of Hobbies

What’s your favorite hobby? (I mean aside from Munzee, of course.) While many of us feel consumed by our day to day lives, you don’t have to wait until retirement to explore your hobbies. And if you are already retired, you’re in luck! It’s time to start exploring what you enjoy. Carving a part out of each day to devote to activities that nourish you physically, mentally, and spiritually is tantamount to achieving overall health and well-being.

Maybe you fell out of touch with a cherished childhood activity or you’ve been meaning to explore a new activity for years. Whatever the case, having a hobby is proven to be beneficial for your mind and body. Hobbies are an excellent stress reliever, which has benefits for both your mental happiness and your overall physical health. It’s crucial to remember to take a break and unwind with an enjoyable activity in order to give yourself some important relaxation time.

At the same time, hobbies allow the opportunity for new experiences and challenges. Shake up the normal routine of your daily life and allow your brain to focus on something new. The mental stimulation will be rewarding, while allowing the chance to explore and discover new talents. Who knows what hidden hobby you will discover in yourself! It might even prove to be financially lucrative, while learning new skills can advance your career.

Don’t allow your free time to be wasted! Enrich your spirit by picking up a new hobby this month. Oh and don’t forget to cap something every day this month too!

Munzee on!

February Resolution Badge Details!

How has 2019 been treating you so far? As we announced last month in our January Resolutions blog, we will be launching monthly Capture Streak Badges centered on a year of self-improvement. Each month’s badge will be dedicated to accomplishing a different New Year’s Resolution. 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. And since this month is the shortest, you have no excuse not to try!

Each month’s badge will be themed around the particular resolution goal. While our January resolution focused on eating healthy, we decided to do something special for the month of love. Love comes in more than just romantic forms, so we made our February resolution to make new friends.

Why meet new people?

Though socializing comes natural to some lucky humans, many struggle to build new friendships. While it’s tempting to retreat into yourself, there are actually proven health benefits that friendship can provide.

In fact, having friends may even extend your lifespan. People who forge strong social relationships are less likely to die prematurely compared to their isolated counterparts. Friends help each other get healthier, as well as improve mental sharpness. And, of course, we need friends to lean on in tough times, bounce ideas off, challenge our beliefs, and widen our perspectives. Overall, having a trusted network of friends makes us healthier, more balanced, and more centered beings.

One of our favorite parts about Munzee is all the new people we meet along the way. Whether we’re traveling across states or nations, or simply checking our social media and e-mails, we love hearing about and seeing how Munzee has brought people together. It’s not always easy to branch out, but sharing a common interest really helps with meeting new people. And while nothing can replace physical friends, it’s pretty awesome to have virtual ones as well!

So go out, make some friends, and maybe even introduce them to Munzee! Good luck and Munzee on!

FIRST EVER Gardens of the Month Winners Revealed!

Today is a special day for the Munzee community, as we are excited to announce our first ever Gardens of the Month winners! This recognition is meant to honor a number of our outstanding players who have helped create some of our favorite Munzee Virtual Gardens. As a way to highlight the achievements of some of the very many people who help make Munzee great, we have created special badges for all players who have deployed in winning gardens.

Our first two Gardens of the Month organizers are mnbball and brandikorte! If these names sound familiar, it’s because these dedicated players also earned our first Players of the Month wins earlier this month. The exciting part about GOTM is that all players who deployed in the garden will earn a special badge as well. So without further ado, our winning gardens for January and our special badges are as follows:

Burger and Pizza Garden organized by Mnbball in Minneapolis, Minnesota

Sunset Cowboy Garden organized by brandikorte in Ft. Worth, TX

Everyone who deployed in these respective winning gardens will receive the following special badges!

GOTM: Burger and Pizza- Deployed a virtual munzee in the January 2019 Garden Of The Month

GOTM: Sunset Cowboy- Deployed a virtual munzee in the January 2019 Garden Of The Month

Do you want to be featured in our February GOTM? We’re asking players to submit already created gardens for the chance to earn this title! Remember that all players who deploy in winning gardens will earn a custom badge. Just be sure to follow the rules!

Rules for GOTM nominations:

  1. Garden must feature non-licensed character designs.
  2. The garden must feature a Garden Places Pin.
  3. The garden must be built using a publicly available spreadsheet which we will ask to be locked after being 100% deployed.
  4. We’re asking for ongoing nominations and we will release the winners throughout the year.

Are you eligible for our GOTM nomination? E-mail us at iloveyou@munzee.com to nominate yourself or another qualified player for either GOTM or POTM.

Need some help deploying in a Virtual Garden? We’ve got you covered! Check out this step-by-step tutorial to help build a Garden today. We’ve also found a handful of player-designed Gardens for you to deploy in as well. Once you’ve gone through the tutorial, go to Option 1, Option 2, or Option 3 and build away!

To help out on your Garden building, we’re also running a sale on Virtual Munzees in the Freeze Tag Online Store! From 15:00 MHQ today (1/25) through 23:59 MHQ on Sunday, January 27th, Virtual Munzees will be on sale for $4.25. Stock on up! If you buy a Virtual Munzee, you will get a Virtual Color Credit for free. No discount code is required for this bonus, but both products must be in the cart when checking out.

Good luck, and Munzee on!

New Year’s Resolution Streak Badges!

With the new year nearly here, we’ve all got ways we’d like to better ourselves in 2019. Easier said than done, right? Well we know how tough it is to keep up with new year’s resolutions so we’ve put together a rewards system to help keep you on track! How you ask? By capping munzees of course!

We’re excited to announce that starting January 1st we’re launching monthly Capture Streak Badges focused on various New Year’s Resolutions. Similar to the Super Streak badges all you have to do is capture at least one munzee* each day for the entire month. If you can make it through the whole month you’ll be awarded a badge themed to that month’s resolution goal!

To kick things off we’re all going to try and eat better in January! Look, nobody likes french fries and desserts more than us, but we need a little more greenery in our lives! 

Did you know?

According to the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention, just 1 in 10 adults in the US eat the recommended amount of fruit or vegetables? Depending on various factors federal guidelines recommend that adults eat at least 1½ to 2 cups per day of fruit and 2 to 3 cups per day of vegetables.  By having fruits and vegetables in your daily diet you can reduce the risk of many leading causes of illness and death, including heart disease, type 2 diabetes, some cancers, and obesity. While some countries may have a better percentage of healthy eaters than the US we know there is always room for improvement!

The more you know, right?!

We know capping a munzee each day won’t magically make you eat better, but we hope as you work towards this capture streak you think about grabbing an apple on your way back! 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 resolution badge design each month, but try and keep up with your resolutions throughout the year! We believe in you!

Here’s to 2019! Go green 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!

We have chosen three submissions, one from each of our social media channels.

Our winners are as follows:

Facebook: Deb Carter


Instagram: brilang71

We also held a second contest for photos attached to Munzees throughout the weekend. Our winners were randomly chosen from the database, but each was attached to a captured munzee at some point during the weekend.

Our winners are as follows:

Username: kellyat9

 

Username: babyw

Announcing World Photo Day Specials!

Say cheese!

We’re excited to announce new Camera Specials in celebration of World Photo Day on Sunday August 19! The Specials will be on the map starting August 17 at 00:01 MHQ and will last until August 20 at 23:59 MHQ.

2,009 Camera Specials will bounce on Greenies and Premium Munzees every 6 hours or when captured. The Camera Specials will also be attracted to Magnets on greenies. Players will be able to capture these on their own Greenies and Premium Munzees as well.

Points:  

  • Capture: 100
  • CapOn: 20 on Greenie
  • CapOn: 70 on Premium

Per usual there will be a badge for capping one of the specials, but you never know what other badges you could earn. Since these are CAMERA specials there will also be another special badge you can earn by uploading pictures to munzees throughout the weekend. Remember that placing pictures on munzees is a Premium feature, so this badge will only be able to be earned if you have a Premium Membership.

You can purchase a Premium Membership and Magnets in the Freeze Tag Online Store. We also have a limited number of World Photo Day Personal Tags in the store as well.

What would World Photo Day be without photos though? We want to see your best Munzee photos throughout the weekend on social media. Upload photos you take when playing Munzee using #WorldPhotoDay and #MunzeeOn to be eligible. One winners will be chosen from each of our three social media accounts (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) and awarded those prizes by the end of next week. We will also have prizes for three photos placed on munzees in the app through the weekend. These winners will also be chosen by the end of next week.

We hope you’re ready to strike a pose! Get out and document your adventures as you Munzee on!
