International Left Handers Day Specials!

Lefties Unite! To celebrate International Left Handers Day and all of our left-handed players, we’ve put together a fun new special for the weekend. Starting at 00:01 MHQ on Friday August 11th, 1,976 Left Handed icons will be on the map until  23:59 MHQ on Sunday August 13th.

The Leftie Specials will bounce on greenies every 6 hours or when captured. To celebrate the 10% of the population that is left handed these specials will also have a 10% chance of scattering a Left Handed Thumbs Up icon.

Points for these specials are as follows:

  • Left Handed Icon: Split of 76 points between the capture and the host owner with a minimum of 19
  • Left Handed Thumbs Up Icon: 76 points for Capture and CapOn

You can also earn a badge for capturing both the Left Handed Special and the Left Handed Thumbs Up.

Remember that these will count towards the Specials Badges and you can use Magnets to draw them out. You can also capture these specials on your own munzees.

Thank you to all of our players and especially all the lefties out there! Munzee on!

Earth Mystery Badges!

When we released the Earth Mystery Munzees, we said badges would be released soon.

Well, soon is a very vague term, and since then, we have released Water AND Air Mysteries! So, excuse our tardiness, but we’re happy to announce some new badges lines are coming out in the near future. To kick things off, we’ve gotten in touch with our roots for some awesome Earth Mystery Munzee badges!

You can now earn badges for deploying and capturing Earth Mystery Munzees. All of these badges will be retroactive and don’t forget that when you cap Earth Mysteries they turn on Recycles, which also have their own badge line. You can purchase Earth Mystery Munzees in the online store.

Deploy

Capture

All of the badges are currently available to earn, so get out there and help out Fauns and Munzee Mother Nature. Have fun, and Munzee on!

Introducing Photo Galleries!

When we released Munzee 3.0 in 2015, we added the ability for players to add pictures at location of Munzees. So for nearly two years our players have gathered quite the collection of photos while munzeeing. Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to see all of those photos in one collected place? Well you’re in luck!

We’re proud to announce that you can now access a photo gallery of images you have taken and attached to Munzees! To access a player’s gallery just go to their online profile and click “More” to access the photo gallery. There you can scroll through and check out some of their greatest hits!

Introducing Munzee Magnets!

Can you feel the attraction? We’re proud to announce a new gameplay feature called Magnets!

These brand new items are temporary credits you can use to attract Seasonal Specials and Mythological Munzees for a set amount of time. It’s easy, you just Magnetize a greenie of your choosing and that munzee will then attract up to 3 specials or myths for up to one hour! The magnet expires at the end of the hour or after the 3rd capture.

Think of it like a temporary shamrock or elemental that also attracts seasonal specials like the Birthday Comic Book specials. So now if you live in a less populated Munzee area you can increase your chances of capping specials and myths!

Magnetizing a munzee from the app is easy!

  1. Choose the Greenie you want to magnetize.
  2. Go to the Munzee Details page.
  3. Click on the three dots icon in the upper righthand corner.
  4. Click “Magnetize” and confirm.
  5. Wait for the fun to begin!

You can also Magnetize a munzee from the web! 

  1. Go to munzee.com/map
  2. Click on the munzee you want to Magnetize and go to the Munzee’s page
  3. Scroll down and on the lower righthand side is a button that say “Magnetize”
  4. Click confirm and go find that Munzee!

Click the image to enlarge it.

A few things to note:

  • When a Magnetized munzee brings a special or a myth anyone can cap it, so be quick or be nice and share with friends!
  • You’ll be able to Magnetize munzees you have already capped as well as your own munzees since you can cap specials on those.
  • You can see how many Magnets you have on the Credits page of the app or web.
  • Magnets will go on sale in August. Premium Members can expect some magnetic attraction next month too.

Magnet credits are currently exclusive to Physical MunzPak subscribers until they go on sale next month. You’ll receive ten Munzee magnets in your July Physical MunzPak subscription so if you haven’t signed up do it NOW!

Even though the Magnets are currently exclusive to MunzPak subscribers, it’s our birthday so we wanted to share the love a bit. Event hosts who are throwing Munzee Birthday party packages will also have the opportunity to buy Magnets to be used at their events. This will help bring some fun for your Event guests! You need to email Louise if you are interested in adding these to your event but remember she is cycling this weekend so don’t expect an immediate response.

***Event Details Edit*** Magnets may be purchased by event hosts. They are added to the event account only and event pricing is $10 for 10 magnets (maximum of 10 per event account).

We’re excited to see how you all use Magnets to your advantage! Happy hunting and Munzee on!

World Turtle Day Specials!

To celebrate World Turtle Day on May 23rd, we’re excited to announce new turtle specials will be crawling to the map! These shell-shocking specials go live May 19th at 00:01 MHQ and will stay until May 28th at 23:59 MHQ.

These 1200 turtle specials will bounce on greenies every six hours or when capped, and you can cap them on your own munzees! You’ll earn 23 points for capping a turtle and the owner of the munzee will earn 17 points for CapOn.

You’ll also earn this totally tubular tortoise badge for capping one of these specials.

We have also released a new version of the Specials Map which allows you to filter what specials you can see so be sure to check it out before chasing after these turtles!

World Turtle Day was started in 2000 by the American Tortoise Rescue to raise awareness and respect for turtles and tortoises, and encourage human action to help them survive and thrive. In connection with our Safar-Zee charity special Munzee encourages our players to show respect for wildlife of all sorts.

Thank you for your support and good luck! Munzee on!

Introducing the Hydra Mythological Munzee!

It’s been three month’s since the Faun Mythological Munzee introduced the Classical Mythology set of munzees and began guiding players around the world on their quests. Some members of Team Munzee were in search of the Fountain of Youth and found another Mythological Munzee that was not helpful at all. In fact, this new beast stands guard to protect the Fountain. This Mythological Munzee is the Hydra.

On Wednesday, May 17th at 15:00 MHQ time, 1,500 Hydra Mythological Munzees will be available in the Munzee Online Store for $20.00. Like the Faun before it, each player is limited to one (1) Hydra Munzee per account, and the sale is open to anyone regardless of other Mythological ownership.

There will also be Hydra Munzee decals available, as well as Yeti and Faun Munzee decals, at that time.

Details:

Name: The Hydra

Description: The Hydra Munzee bounces on greenies every 12 hours or when captured. Each is numbered and owned by a Munzee player. Only 1 Hydra Munzee is allowed per account. You will also earn the Hydra badge for owning a Hydra Munzee.

Points:

  • Deploy: 100
  • Capture: 100
  • CapOn: 100
