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!

Rob is on his way to Geowoodstock which means Flat Robs are now LIVE on the map! The original flat fella will be on the map from now through Monday at 23:59 MHQ so enjoy the long weekend with Flat Rob. If you’re headed to Geowoodstock be sure to say hey to Rob for us. He’ll be roaming around all weekend, but you should be able to find him near the Space Coast Geostore booth from time to time.

Don’t forget that Flat Rob’s newest friend Flat Matt will be joining him very soon! Flat Matts will go on sale June 1st at 12:00 MHQ in the Munzee online store. To celebrate our sports loving flat friend we’re meeting at the Frisco Roughriders baseball game that night and we want you to join us! Be sure to RSVP on the calendar HERE.

Open House Gallery!

Our MH-New Open House was a huge hit! It was great to hang out with some of our players and show off our new office space. Flat Matt made his first appearance, we hosted a not-so-brief Facebook Live videocast and much more! We even had a few surprise guests show up, including our friends from the National Breast Cancer Foundation Donation!

Thank you to everyone that joined us in person as well as those who deployed in the area for all of us to enjoy.

Slide through the gallery (see small arrows in the bottom right corner of image above) to see how well we monkey around!

Munzee on!

Matt’s Been Flattened!

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 announce that he now has a similarly two-dimensional friend- Flat Matt!

After three years with Team Munzee we’ve finally put enough pressure on Matt McCann to flatten him! The first Flat Matt has been released as a permanent MHQ special at our Open House today and they’ll go on sale for the public on June 1st. Flat Matts work much like Flat Robs, but there are some differences.

Flat Robs may be activated when Rob is traveling, but Flat Matts are activated based on specific sporting event schedules. Exactly what schedules? Well we can’t spill all of Flat Matt’s secrets! Stay tuned for more gameplay details when Flat Matts go on sale next month.

To celebrate Flat Matt’s global release MHQ is hosting a Munzee Event at the Frisco Roughriders baseball game Thursday June 1st and we’d love for you to join us! Be sure to RSVP on the Munzee Calendar. We’ll have more details about the event in a couple weeks so stay tuned for more info!

MHQ is MH-NEW!

Remember to RSVP to our MHNew Open House event this Friday on the Munzee Event Calendar. Those in attendance will get an awesome new badge for the Open House as well as a few new badges for visiting MHQ!

We’re also going to start a monthly Open House program as well! On the second Friday of each month we will have an Open House Munzee event from 2-5 PM. This will be a great time to check out the new offices, chat with MHQ staff and more. Keep an eye on the calendar for future dates as well!

We understand everyone can’t make it to Texas though, so be on the lookout for a new social media campaign soon! We’ll be interviewing team members about their new offices so you can get a first hand account of what our interior design skills look like.

Ahead of Friday’s Open House, we wanted to showcase a few MHQ team members hanging in our new offices. We’ve still got some space to fill, but we’ve been having a pretty good time breaking it in. We promise that in between wiffle ball games and scooter rides we actually do get stuff done!

We’re super excited to see new and old friends on Friday and thank you all for your well wishes with the move! Munzee on!

MHQ is moving offices!

We’re excited to announce that Munzee Headquarters is expanding in a big way! We have upgraded our offices to a much larger space which we will be debuting in grand fashion. The new spot is located at 1720 Bray Central Drive – McKinney, TX 75069, a few miles away from our previous offices.

We know everyone will be eager to deploy around our new office, but we have some big plans in store too! A deploy exclusion zone has been placed over the surrounding area, but this will be readjusted in the near future. There is a small physical exclusion zone around the property so we don’t bother the other tenants in the building.

As everyone knows moving can be a bit tiresome, so we are asking that anyone who wants to visit MHQ hold off until May 12th so we can get ourselves in order (exceptions for those who have already contacted us or have plans in place). Worry not though, because we’re doing it big with an open house!

Join Team Munzee in person for the grand opening of our new offices on May 12th from 2-5 PM MHQ. We will have snacks, prizes, a new MHQ grand opening badge, event indicator pin, and many more surprises!

Be sure to let us know you’ll be joining in the fun at https://calendar.munzee.com/NewMHQ/. We know not everyone can make it to TX though, so we will broadcast live on FB for anyone who can’t attend the ceremony!

Stay tuned for more info about the new space, our grand opening and more soon!

Join Rob and Garfield in Munzee, IN!

Munzee is turning 6 this year! To celebrate we are taking over Muncie, Indiana and turning it into Munzee, Indiana! Join Rob the weekend of July 21st for a number of fun events including a trip to the Delaware County Fair! Rob will also be visited by a certain fat cat who is pretty popular around those parts.

We’re pleased to announce that special Garfield icons will be exclusively available in Muncie, Fairmount (the hometown of Garfield creator and cartoonist Jim Davis) and other areas of Grant County.

Some of these munzees will mark the locations of Garfield statues in the area. Located in Marion, Indiana and surrounding Grant County cities, the fiberglass statues each measure approximately five feet in height and depict Jim Davis’s Garfield in hilarious costumes or situations. Learn more about the official Grant County Garfield Trail HERE

A Munzee (and possibly Eventzee) trail will be placed to coincide with this and launched during the birthday weekend!

Keep a lookout for more details about the weekend of events on the Calendar in the near future, but start planning your trip to the Midwest now!

We’ll also have more information regarding all of the 6th Birthday worldwide festivities soon, but you can be sure that it will be a BAM! of a time, even if it is a bit DRAWN out!

Special thanks to PAWS Inc. for permission to use the likeness of Garfield in the Munzee game.

St. Patrick’s Day Weekend UPDATE

A reminder that starting Friday March 17th at 00:01 MHQ Munzee is going GREEN with a 3x Point Weekend! Greenies, Shamrocks and Emerald munzees will all be worth 3 times as many points for captures, deploys or cap-ons.

Wait, what’s that? Some of our other munzees are a bit GREEN with envy…

We’re pleased to announce Green Virtuals, Green Mystery Virtuals, and Green and Dark Green MVMs will also be worth triple points!

So to recap:

From Friday, March 17th at 00:01 MHQ time until Sunday, March 19th at 23:59 MHQ time, we’ll be having a 3x Point Weekend for our favorite green munzees, including:

  • Greenies
  • Shamrocks
  • Emeralds
  • Green Virtuals
  • Green Mystery Virtuals
  • Green MVMs
  • Dark Green MVMs

Dark Green MVM

This will effect all points — Deploys, Captures, and CapOns.

Don’t forget that in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day, Leprechauns will also be bouncing faster than normal. During this time frame, Leprechauns will bounce every 6 hours (or when capped) instead of every 12 hours.

Be on the lookout for three secret Luck Of The Irish badges that can only be earned this weekend too. These are for capping Greenies and Leprechauns, but you’ll have to figure out just how many! Here’s a hint of where to start though…

Free Shamrocks!Capture 100 greenies and 1 Leprechaun.

Munzee on! #E1EW and Happy #StPatricksDay!

Let the Safar-Zee begin!

Last week we announced our March fundraising effort would focus on helping wildlife worldwide and now we’re excited to go into more detail on how YOU can help the majestic beasts of the wild.

For the month of March we will be selling Paw Print special virtual icons in the Munzee Online Store and all proceeds will go to help world wildlife rescue organizations.

These special Paw Prints will be on sale from now until the end of the month and the munzees will stay on the map through 23:59 MHQ Time on April 30, 2017.

For $5 you get a pack of 5 different Paw Print icons, each featuring a different animal print: Paw, Talon, Hoof, Foot, and Claw. Players will be limited to 20 sets of five Paw Print specials,


Points:
30 Capture, 10 Deploy, 10 CapOn

There are also a variety of badges you can earn for capping and deploying these temporary icons.The Safar-Zee, Charity Paw Prints and Animal Expedition badges will only be available while the charity specials are on the map so get to capping.

In connection to raising money for a worldwide wildlife rescue organization, we’ve also hired a new local member of the MHQ team- Meet Mystery!

To add a local spin to our worldwide initiative Munzee has adopted Mystery for the year through In-Sync Exotics, an exotic feline rescue group based out of Wylie, TX.

In order to offer Mystery and her other furry friends everything they need we have set up a permanent Munzee Virtual Garden outside of In-Sync’s headquarters. You can help make Mystery welcome to the Munzee team by purchasing a golden paw print virtual icon for $10. The pins will be automatically deployed at the location.

Points:
30 Capture, 10 Deploy, 10 CapOn

Players are limited to one paw print pin and this virtual garden will be permanently placed at 3430 Skyview Drive in Wylie, TX 75098.

Checkout the virtual garden as it grows HERE.

On behalf of Team Munzee we thank our players for their support and look forward to lending a helping hand to those with paws. Munzee on!
