Diabetes Awareness Charity Special

Rob and Matt mentioned on the latest podcast that a new charity special was on the way, and we’re happy to announce that it is here! Starting now, you can purchase and deploy the Diabetes Awareness Charity Special.

Diabetes awareness is a very important cause that is near and dear to many of our hearts. From family members to friends, many, if not all, of us know someone who has been affected by diabetes. From MunzFit events to the Tour de Cure to this charity special, we’ve planned this Fall to focus on health and diabetes awareness and research.

Money raised from the Diabetes Awareness Charity Special will be donated to the American Diabetes Association through the Tour de Cure. The remainder of the money will be donated to the International Diabetes Federation (IDF). The IDF is an umbrella organization that consists of over 200 diabetes associations in 170 countries to help those living with diabetes and those at risk. This charity special also coincides with World Diabetes Day (November 14th), the world’s largest diabetes awareness campaign.

The Diabetes Awareness Charity Special will be on the map from Monday, October 16th at 15:00 MHQ time (now) through Sunday, November 19th at 23:59 MHQ time. Specials can be purchased in the Munzee Online Store through October 31st at 23:59 MHQ time These are available for $2.00 each, and there is a limit of 50 per username. You can find them here. These are temporary and will be archived at the end of this special campaign, similar to previous charity campaign specials in the past.

These are temporary virtual munzees that can be placed anywhere via Quick Deploy, and there is a Diabetes Awareness filter in the app under “Virtual” (make sure to turn it on). They have a 300ft capture radius and are blastable as well. These charity specials do follow proximity rules with all other types (excluding Flats). On November 19th at 23:59 they will be archived and removed from the map so plan and deploy early.

Points for the Diabetes Awareness Special are as follows:

  • Deploy: 14
  • Capture: 14
  • CapOn: 10

You can also earn the Diabetes Awareness Special badge for capturing or deploying 1 Diabetes Awareness Special.

During this fundraiser, we’d like to highlight stories about diabetes (or health in general) and how Munzee has helped you. If you have a story you would like to share, please email iloveyou@munzee.com.

We hope you enjoy this temporary charity special virtual game piece, and we thank you in advance for your support.

Munzee on!

Introducing the Freezer Burn badge!

We’re proud to announce a new challenge for our players: The Freezer Burn badge! You can earn this new badge by getting burned and frozen in the same day when capping the Fire and Ice Elemental Munzees.

The Freezer Burn badge is now live to earn, but it is not retroactive so you’ll need to prepare for some fresh burns and frostbite. We know this is no easy feat, so work with your fellow players and deploy Fire and Ice Munzees to better each others’ chances!

You can purchase an Elemental Munzee Pak in the Munzee online store, or buy individual elementals through authorized Munzee Resellers. Resellers will also have Ice Mystery Munzees on sale for 10% off.

Good luck and Munzee on!

 

Suffering from a brain freeze? Here’s a refresher on how each elemental effect works:

Fire Mystery Munzees

When you capture a Fire Mystery three Fires will then scatter to greenies within 1 mile. When you capture one of these Fires there is a chance you’ll extinguish the flame and earn 50 points. Unfortunately there’s also a chance you’ll get burned and LOSE 5 points. On the bright side you can earn badges for getting burned though!

Ice Mystery Munzees

Similar to the Fire, when you capture an Ice Mystery three Freezes will then scatter to greenies within 1 mile. Luckily you won’t lose any points for capturing a Freeze. Unfortunately there is also a chance you’ll be frozen and unable to play the game for one minute. Surviving the Ice Age might be worth it though because you can also earn some cool badges for getting frozen!

MunzFit Coin Of The Month- $7.50- Buy HERE

To celebrate our MunzFit 2.0 events, we’re releasing a Munzee Coin featuring last year’s cycling logo. The soft enamel coin can be logged and discovered in the Munzee app, so it’s perfect if you plan on attending a few MunzFit events.

Premium Personal Tag- $10- Buy HERE

Personal Munzees were introduced to incorporate a more social aspect to the game while allowing you to earn points. The new Premium Personal takes this a step further by allowing you to link other Personal Munzees for quick deployment. Please note that you must have a Premium Account Membership to purchase a Premium Personal and you can only buy one premium tag a year.

WallaBee Coin- $10- Buy HERE

This brushed metal honeycomb coin features the WallaBee mascot and was another awesome item introduced at MHQ Bash. This coin may be a WallaBash keepsake, but it can also be logged and discovered in the Munzee app as well.

WallaBee Passport- $10- Buy HERE

WallaBee Passports are just one way to interact with the game and community. Each passport comes with your very first sticker, straight from WHQ.

October Physical MunzPak and Introducing the Seasonal Munzee!

Over the past few months, we’ve been trying to refine our MunzPak programs by listening to feedback and requests from subscribers. This month, we’re implementing some new changes in response to that feedback. October’s Physical MunzPak includes only physical stickers. While we will still be including generics, any special munzee types will be included as stickers and not credits.

This month’s Physical MunzPak includes:

  • 5 New Seasonal Munzees (see below)
  • 3 Fire Mystery Munzees
  • 3 Ice Mystery Munzees
  • 2 Earth Mystery Munzees
  • 2 Water Mystery Munzees
  • 35 Mini Generic Stickers

We’ve also changed how the stickers are printed. All of the items included in this month’s Physical MunzPak are on one sheet. The layout for this sheet is below.

There will also be an insert included in the MunzPak envelope that explains this.


Now, let’s talk about the new Seasonal Munzee!

The new Seasonal Munzee is similar to the Evolution Munzees in that it changes after a period of time. The Season Munzee will change to the corresponding season on set dates:

  • October 1st – Fall (Northern Hemisphere)/Spring (Southern Hemisphere)
  • January 1st – Winter (Northern Hemisphere)/Summer (Southern Hemisphere)
  • April 1st – Spring (Northern Hemisphere)/Fall (Southern Hemisphere)
  • July 1st – Summer (Northern Hemisphere)/Winter (Southern Hemisphere)

This cycle will be continuous, but you can only capture each stage of the munzee once (i.e. if you capture the Fall stage, you cannot capture the Fall stage a year later).

Points

  • Deploy – 25 points
  • Capture – 20 points (per season captured)
  • CapOn – 10 points

Proximity Rules: 150ft from your own munzees; 50ft from other players’ munzees


We hope you enjoy the new Seasonal Munzee as well as the changes to MunzPak! If you’re not a MunzPak subscriber, you can subscribe here.

Munzee on!

Flat Schedules and Events for October

Hey, everyone!

As you may have noticed, Flat Robs and Flat Matts are still on the map. That was intentional. Our wonderful Events Manager, Louise, asked that they remain on the map for the duration of MunzFit 2.0 events, and we were happy to have Rob and Matt virtually attend all of them. If you need a refresher, that means Flat Robs and Flat Matts will be on the map until 23:59 MHQ time on October 15th.

That doesn’t mean Rob and Matt won’t be out and about, though. They will be attending events throughout the month, as well.

Rob

In the spirit of coexisting, Rob will be attending “Going Caching” in Rome, Georgia next week, and end his adventures at the “GA – Going Ca…er uh Munzeeing! Rome” event! You can meet him at the “Going Caching” events next Wednesday, October 4th through Sunday, October 8th. If you’re attending “Going Caching” or are just in the area, make sure to stop by and say hi. The theme is Spy Games so it fits well in his covert ops mindset and attire.

Matt

Matt, on the other hand, will be getting into the Halloween spirit in Missouri during the end of the month. On Saturday, October 21st, he’ll be in Kansas City for “A Spooktacular KC Halloween” and “Kansas City’s Ghoulish Last Call“. The following weekend, he will be headed up to Springfield, Missouri for the “2nd Annual MunZters Mash” event on Saturday, October 28th.

Team Munzee

In the week between Rob and Matt’s travels, Team Munzee will be participating in the 2017 DFW Tour de Cure on Saturday, October 14th! We will be hosting an event after the race, and you can read all about our Tour de Cure efforts here. You still have time to join or donate to our team. Keep an eye out for more information as we get closer to race day!

Without further ado, here are the schedules for Flat Robs and Flat Matts:

Flat Robs

  • Through October 15th at 23:59 MHQ time
  • Additional times in October are possible but not confirmed at this time

Flat Matts

  • Through October 15th at 23:59 MHQ time
  • October 17th at 00:01 MHQ time through October 18th at 23:59 MHQ time
  • October 20th at 00:01 MHQ time through October 23rd at 23:59 MHQ time
  • October 25th (00:01-23:59 MHQ time)
  • October 27th at 00:01 through October 29th at 23:59 MHQ time

We hope to see you at an event this month!

Munzee on!

Introducing the Premium Personal Munzee!

We introduced Personal Munzees as a way to incorporatea more social aspect to the game while allowing you to earn points. Since then, Personals have taken on a life of their own in the game. Now, we’re introducing the next step: the Premium Personal.

Like the original Personal Munzee, the Premium Personal can be deployed up to three times per day and has a one mile capture radius. The Premium Personal has some upgrades, though. For starters, a Premium Personal has a higher point structure:

  • Capture/CapOn: Split of 100 points, minimum 20 points
  • Deploy: 25 points — You only receive deploy points for the original deploy, not every time it is deployed.

Premium Personals also have another trick up their sleeve — you can link other Personal Munzees to a Premium Personal for quick deployment. You still have to capture each Personal individually. On the details page of a Premium Personal, you will see a button called “Slave Munzees”.

On the next page, you will see a space to enter the URL for one of your other Personal Munzees. NOTE: This ONLY works with Personal Munzees, and they must be owned by you.

After you click “Link Munzee”, your Personal Munzee will show up underneath the URL field. You can manage the Personals linked to your Premium Personal on this page.

Premium Personal Munzees will be launching TONIGHT at MHQ Bash. All attendees who purchased a package (this does not include the “Ace High” free package) will receive a Premium Personal (seen below).

Premium Personal Munzees will be available in the Munzee Online Store next week. Premium Personals will only be available to Premium Members, and you will only be able to buy 1 per year. Keep an eye on the blog for more information about their availability.

We hope you enjoy the new Premium Personal Munzee!

Munzee on!

Introducing the Rainbow Unicorn!

As many of you probably know, we like chasing Mythological Munzees quite a bit. It isn’t a surprise to see Rob, Matt, or other members of Team Munzee capture your Mythological and leave a funny (or so we think) picture on it. We want to see the same thing, too. You know us, though. We like to stand out a bit. That’s where the Rainbow Unicorn comes in.

These Rainbow Unicorn Mythological Munzees (or as they’re known around MHQ, “AlternaMyths”) are a bit different than the Unicorns currently out in the wild. Rainbow Unicorns will be deployed by members of Team MHQ exclusively.

Tomorrow (September 22nd) at 00:01 MHQ time, 20 Rainbow Unicorns (1 on each Team Munzee members’ account) will be deployed. Looks aren’t the only difference, though. For capturing a Rainbow Unicorn, you will earn 200 points. Owners of the host munzee will also earn double the points of normal Unicorns (e.g. if the Rainbow Unicorn lands on a Shamrock, the owner will receive 34 points; if it lands on a greenie, the owner will earn 12 points).

Some things don’t change between the Unicorn and the Rainbow Unicorn, though. As noted above, Rainbow Unicorns will land on both greenies and Shamrocks. They will still bounce every 12 hours or when captured. And, of course, Rainbow Unicorns will be attracted by Magnets.

Have fun chasing our Rainbow Unicorns, and make sure to leave pictures for us!

Munzee on!

Get Fit Munzee Trail Recap

Hey, everyone! Matt here. I was off last week, but I wanted to recap my trip to South Carolina for the kickoff of the Get Fit Munzee Trail!

Erica (AgentSmiley) approached us about creating a Munzee trail as part of her Silver Award for Girl Scouts. I, an Eagle Scout myself, loved the idea of using Munzee to help with a community service project for a great organization. The team worked with Erica and her family to plan and release a 30 stop trail in Spartanburg, South Carolina dubbed the Get Fit Munzee Trail. This trail is a permanent fixture on the Munzee map, and can be seen using the Tourism filter.

The trail went live on Saturday, September 2nd with a kickoff event. We spent the morning walking the 2.45 mile walking trail while capping the new Trail Munzees and event icons that had been deployed. This was some players’ first time playing and attending an event, and it was great to see the Munzee community in action helping them learn.

After the morning event, we all went out to cap some more then met up for a “cool down” event to grab some food, enjoy each other’s company, and cap more event munzees.

I had a great time, and I want to thank everyone who came out or supported from afar. I’m happy that we were able to help Erica with her project as well as grow the Munzee community.

Rob and I will be back at events soon, and we can’t wait to meet and see more of you!

Munzee on!
