Evolution Munzee Badges

We released the first Evolution Munzees in October. Since then, new sets have entered the game, and we have plenty more planned for the future. With these things in mind, we are ready to introduce Evolution Munzee badges!

There are two lines of Evolution Munzee Badges: capture and deploy.

Capture

The capture line for Evolution Munzees includes three badges: Book Checkout, Book Shelf, and Library Card. These are for capturing all stages of one, five, and ten types of Evolution Munzees, respectively.

The capture badges will show on the badge page with a null image until earned:

Deploy

The deploy line for Evolution Munzees includes three badges as well: Beaker, Safety Equipment, and Microscope. These are for deploying 1, 25, and 50 physical AND/OR virtual Evolution Munzees, respectively.

The deploy badges are hidden badges and will not show until awarded.

These badges ARE retroactive and will begin awarding TOMORROW, January 12th.

We hope you enjoy!

Munzee on!

2016 was great year for Munzee Inc. and we’re excited to look back on some of the highlights! The “2016 in Review” series will showcase different aspects of the company and some of our team’s favorite parts of 2016.

We love to look at the various statistics of the game and how you, our community, has grown it over the years. Today, we’re looking at 2016 by the numbers.

2016- WallaBee In Review

2016 was great year for Munzee Inc. and we’re excited to look back on some of the highlights! The “2016 in Review” series will showcase different aspects of the company and some of our team’s favorite parts of 2016.

Robbie McGuire, WallaBee Manager

We are lovingly calling 2016 the year of growing pains. As Munzee has had WallaBee for a year now, we’ve seen many growth opportunities- some good, some bad- that have added great changes in the app and community. We’re proud of everything we accomplished this year and excited for what’s to come.

~Community~
The BeeKeeper program has grown from a few players approving places to a full-fledged team of forum moderators, helping make the game better for all.

Hardships were found in the community, from simple drama to losing players to death. Through it all, the community has found a way of coming together to hold others up. You don’t see this kind of community through normal mobile gaming and we’re proud to be a part of it.

WallaBee “One Year With Munzee” Celebration in Anaheim, CA.

~Gaming~
Over 350 items were released in 2016. Sets like Wombie Walentine Wapocolypse, Tell Us A Tale, Veni Vidi Mixi, Sushi Madness, BCA, and Cracking Under Pressure have showcased the types of sets that WallaBee is known for.

Users were able to commission new uniques for the first time in a long time. Players are also able to save more than 255 Unique items to their set without issues. With the addition of over 90 new uniques this year, the extra room was definitely needed.

New subcategories were added to the map, some previous subcategories were adjusted to blend categories, and players can now stash more items than ever. It is obvious that locations have been modified to best accommodate players, wherever they are.

~Extra Fun~
We also saw the addition of various physical items, like the pins, shirts, and the Limited Edition WallaBee Card Game. This game was created by staff for a completely new experience with the WallaBee artwork you know and love.

Plans for 2017
The biggest question on everyone’s mind is: “When does Android come out?” We are working hard to make this dream a reality. We anticipate launching the Android app in Spring 2017 (date TBD).

Beyond the player support and gameplay you’ve grown to expect, you can expect to see exciting game growth, technology improvements, and even more items to collect. We are excited for what 2017 has in store for WallaBee! Join us as we take this road together.

WallaBee Manager

WallaBee: Trading and Collecting Game was acquired by Munzee Inc. in 2015. The app is currently available on iOS devices and an Android version is coming soon.

Introducing the Myth Wrangler Badge!

For over a year now our players have travelled the world in search of the mythological munzees, capturing Unicorns, Leprechauns, Dragons and Yetis. While many have captured all four, an even rarer feat will now be awarded: The Myth Wrangler Badge.

This badge is for the best of the best who can capture all 4 Mythological Munzees in one day- based on MHQ time. A collection like this isn’t easy to come by, but we know you will persevere!

This badge IS retroactive and will begin awarding at 00:01 MHQ time TOMORROW (December 22).

We hope you enjoy this new badge!

Munzee on!

Introducing the Places Munzees!

As you may have seen across various channels, we’ve teased some new types of munzees during the past week. Well now, they’ve officially arrived. We’re very happy to introduce the Places Munzees!

The Places Munzees are positioned at locations that may be of interest all around the world. The first two categories of Places to be released are Airports and Sporting Arenas:

The Airport Places Munzees have been placed at some of the largest airports in the world as well as airports in areas with large or growing player presence. More airports will be added as we move forward.

The Sports Places Munzees have been placed at stadiums of major sporting leagues around the world, including soccer (football), hockey, and rugby. These will be expanded to more sports and stadiums in the future.

Details 

Places Munzees can be captured once per MHQ day. You do not have to wait 24 hours before you can re-cap it, e.g. you can capture it at 11:30 MHQ time on Monday and 9:21 MHQ time on Tuesday. Each capture of a Places Munzee will earn you 10 points.

Places Munzees are NOT blastable. They do, however, have different capture radiuses. Sports Places Munzees have a capture radius of 1000 feet. Airport Places Munzees have a capture radius of 1 mile.

Badges 

There are 3 badges for capping Places Munzees: Passport, Customs Stamp, and World Traveler. These are for capping 1, 25, and 100 UNIQUE Places Munzees, respectively.

We will continue to add new categories of Places in the future. The next two categories will be Universities and Aquariums, which will be released in January. More information regarding those categories will be available closer to release- so stay tuned!

We hope you enjoy these new munzees.

Have fun, and Munzee on!

Munzee 3.3 is Here!

Our development team is always working to improve Munzee and add new features. We’re proud to announce the release of Munzee 3.3! This update includes:

  • Multi Blast Support: When using Blast Captures, a pop up menu will appear asking how many blasts you would like to use. You can choose a number between 1 and 10. When you tap “Fire!”, a second pop up will appear asking you to confirm the number of munzees being blasted and the number of Blast Captures you will be using. You then have the choice to either use the blasts or not. This feature will automatically adjust to how many Blast Captures you have and how many blastable munzees there are. E.g. If you originally choose to use 3 Blast Captures, but there are only 125 blastable munzees within the mile radius, the app will automatically change the number of Blast Captures to 2.
  • In-app Quick Deploy: You can now long-press the capture button on the main map to pull up a list of virtual munzees to Quick Deploy. You can scroll through the pop-up list and choose a munzee you would like to deploy. Once you tap on the munzee of your choice, you will be taken to the normal deploy screens to edit information and location.

  • Improved Geolocation Handling
  • Updated Scanner
  • Reconstructed Tools View
  • Minor Fixes

The app has been pushed to the Google Play and Apple App Stores. If you don’t currently see an update, please be patient. There may be a delay in propagation to your area, but it is on the way! We hope you enjoy this new update!

Munzee on!

A Freeze is on the way…

Since the release of the Fire Mystery, the Munzee Map has been red hot. If you’ve been brave enough to attempt to put out the spreading fires, you know the peril that it brings. Being burned can be costly. Everything has an opposite, though. There has been a shift in the wind, and a cold front is starting to arrive. With it comes the rain, the snow, and the Ice… Mystery Munzee.

Today, we are introducing the Ice Mystery Munzee.

ice

Name: Ice Mystery Munzee

Points:
Deploy: 50
Capture/CapOn: Sum of 60 by multiples of 5 with a a minimum of 10 (e.g. 10, 25, 30, 45, etc) — Example: Capture = 45, CapOn = 15

Now, this may seem familiar. This is, in many ways, a reflection of the Fire Mystery. However, it has a different twist.

When captured, the Ice Mystery “freezes” three greenies within a mile. These will stay frozen for two hours or until capped, whichever comes first.

icespread

Capping these frozen greenies will result in two possible outcomes:

  1. There is a chance that you “thaw” the frozen greenie. If you do, you earn 50 Capture points and the owner of the host greenie earns 10  CapOn points.
  2. The other outcome is a bit more frosty. You also have the potential to get frozen. If you do, your screen will turn blue, and you cannot play for 1 minute. As with the Fire Mystery, it’s a choice of risk versus reward.

Badges: There WILL be badges for Deploy, Capture, and Being Frozen. These badges will be unveiled very soon.

Filters and /types page: Filters will be added in app and on information added to the types webpage Friday.

Availability

Ice Mystery Munzees are available NOW in the Munzee Online Store. They are physical stickers sold in blocks of 20 for $40 USD. There is currently a limit of 100 per person, per month.

We hope you enjoy the Ice Mystery Munzees!

Have fun, and Munzee on!

In Remembrance

Team Munzee would like to acknowledge several worldwide holidays taking place at the end of this week to remember and honor members of armed forces. In the United Kingdom, and the Commonwealth of Nations, November 11 is Remembrance Day. This memorial day has been in place since the end of World War 1 in 1918 and serves as a time to remember those members of armed forces who have fallen in battle. The observance is signified by a single red poppy, due in part to their brilliant red color as a symbol for the blood spilled in the war. To remember the fallen, Munzee is placing a sea of red poppies on the map as special bouncing icons. In the United States and other Nations, other special services are performed on or around the 11th. Veterans Day in the United States honors individuals who have served, or currently serve, in all branches of the Armed Forces. Our team is particularly proud to honor our co-founder, Scott Foster, for his time served in the United States Air Force. Scott was stationed at the Royal Air Force Base in Lakenheath England during his active duty.

To honor and remember all members of the armed forces, here are the details about the Munzee special icon and badge. 1918 Poppy Icons will bounce around the Munzee map every 4 hours, or upon capture. A single capture will earn the Remembrance badge. The poppies will appear on regular “greenies” only, and are only able to be captured by one player before bouncing to the next Munzee. For premium members, the “only expiring munzees” advanced filter will show the poppy in app. Premium members also remember to setup “alerts” in the app on the side menu to receive alerts when an expiring special lands nearby. The host munzee and capturer will both receive 11 points. This special remembrance and veteran’s memorial munzee will appear from November 9 @ 11:00 until November 15 @ 23:59, all times CST (MHQ).

We honor and remember those who have served in armed forces worldwide and appreciate the sacrifice made by the soldiers, their families, and loved ones. May peace one day reign, but until then, God bless those in uniform and keep them safe during their service.

Munzee On!
