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.

The Blog is Back and Has a Guest

First off, we want to thank you for your patience over the past few days. Scott and Daniel, along with our AWS partner, have been working nonstop to get everything back up and running properly.

As you can imagine, Rob is a bit worn out after this week and is ready for a break. He can’t just step away, though, so he’s leaving Flat Rob to look over the map. Starting tomorrow (March 3rd) at 00:01 MHQ time, Flat Robs will be on the map. This will last through Sunday, March 5th, at 23:59 MHQ time.

BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE.

Flat Rob didn’t want to leave the map, so we bargained with him. Flat Robs will be on the map the following two weekends as well. They will appear from:

  • March 9th at 00:01 MHQ time through March 12th at 23:59 MHQ time
  • March 17th at 15:00 MHQ time through March 19th at 23:59 MHQ time

Since the blog has been down we’ve had some new things released so for information check out the following blogs;

Thanks again for your support and for sticking with us. We know this ordeal has been a bit painful, but it has all been minor growing pains to help the games and platforms.

Munzee on!

Introducing the Bellhop Nomad!

While you’ve all been busy capturing the treacherous Jewel Thief on precious stones all month, a new stealthy fella is roaming the halls of Hotels and Motels worldwide. He claims he’s just here to help you with your bags though, so be sure to leave a tip for the new Bellhop Nomad Munzee!

10 Bellhop Nomads are now bouncing on Motel and Hotel Munzees every 12 hours or until captured. Note that the Bellhop only bounces to physical Destination Munzees though, so it will not fall on Virtual Resort Munzees.

These nomads will count toward the new Nomad Badges that were recently released as well.

Points:
Capture – 100
CapOn (for host) – 20

Since capping a Motel/Hotel usually means multiple caps and also a deploy if there are rooms left, we figured we’d go ahead and answer a few questions that might pop up:

1) What happens if I cap a Bellhop Nomad on an already capped Motel/Hotel?
You will get the points for the Bellhop Nomad, but you won’t get caps for the rooms again.

2) What happens if I cap a Bellhop Nomad on a not yet capped Motel/Hotel?
You’ll cap the Motel/Hotel as a nomad and additionally cap the rooms like you would have normally.

3) What if there are rooms available?
You’ll deploy a room like normal, as long as you do not already have a room since this would be case 1.

ScatterED Munzee Badge Line

With the release of the Scatter Munzee Badges a few weeks ago, of course the SCATTERED weren’t too far behind! This new line of badges is for capturing the ever exploding munzees that are sent out after initially capturing a Scatter Munzee.

Similar to the mad Scatter badges, the Scattered badges depict just how overwhelming it can be when more than a few get loose.

Please note that these badges are only for the official Scattered Munzees, so Fire, Ice and other specials that include munzees that scatter will not count. These badges are retroactive though, so all the hard work you’ve put into capping Scattered Munzees has paid off!

ZeeOps begin March 1st!

Agent, it’s up to you to go undercover and save the day.

At long last we are proud to announce the creation of ZeeOps- single player campaign missions to complete for rewards. These Operations work much like individual Clan Wars, but feature a variety of Mission levels. Missions range in difficulty and require a variety of Munzee skills.

ZeeOps will officially go live on March 1st at 10:00 MHQ Time and you can begin your missions on March 2nd.


To learn more about ZeeOps check out our campaign page at zeeops.munzee.com or the FAQs page.

More “How To” information will be released in the coming days through debriefings leading up to the launch of the Operations Dashboard. This dashboard will be where you can plan out your Operations and Missions each month. Currently there are four different Operation lengths each including varying levels of Missions. You’ll schedule out your Missions for each Operation in advance so prepare accordingly.

Whether it’s taking out members of the Mean Green Gang or acquiring rare gems and jewels it’s up to you to complete the Missions in the required amount of time. New sets of covert Operations are released monthly so schedule your time wisely.

To start ZeeOps you’ll have to earn ZeeCred. The cost of the ZeeOp depends on the duration of that Operation. Starting March 1st you’ll be able to purchase ZeeCred in the Munzee Online Store and you’ll also earn more by completing Operations. All Premium members will be awarded 50 ZeeCred on March 1st as well so make sure your membership is renewed at https://store.munzee.com/products/premium-membership.

In connection with the release of ZeeOps we’re also pleased to announce that 007 700 specials will be on the map to help you take your first steps toward becoming an agent. These ZeeOp icon specials will launch at 00:01 MHQ time on Thursday, February 23rd and end at 23:59 MHQ time on Sunday, March 5th. The specials will bounce on greenies every six hours or when capped and both capper and owner will earn points and extra ZeeCred. You’ll also earn the limited edition Operation: Launch badge for capturing one of these specials.

  • Capture: 20 points + 5 ZeeCred
  • CapOn: 10 points + 5 ZeeCred

You can view the number of ZeeCred you have earned on the FAQs page.

ZeeOps is a long time coming (more than a few thousand hours) and all of MHQ is super excited to give our players even more ways to play. Stay tuned for more information in the coming days and as always be on the lookout for updates and new features in the future. Get ready for March 1st- Director Zee is counting on you!

Maintenance and Database Transition

Hey, everybody!

As you may have noticed, some Munzee services have had a slower response time than normal. That is something that you, nor we, like. We are beginning a process to transfer our databases and servers. That process begins with some emergency maintenance tonight (February 20th) at 21:00 MHQ time. This maintenance should last roughly one hour.

Over the next seven to ten days, there may be outages or downtime that affect gameplay as changes and transfers are made. If we know about these potential outages, we will provide notice in advance here on the blog. If an outage is spontaneous, we will do our best to post an update on our status page within five minutes. You can sign up to receive SMS or email messages when an incident is reported, updated, and resolved on that page.

While we can’t give any specific time frames for some of these potential outages, we will continue to update you with the information that we receive from our AWS partners as we make these changes.

We apologize in advance for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience. All of this is to make the game the best it can be and continue to push forward with our 2017 theme. Everyone. Everywhere.

Munzee on!

Introducing the Earth Mystery Munzee!

You’ve all played with Fire and been frozen by Ice, but now it’s time to clean up with the new Earth Mystery Munzee!

This new physical Munzee type is much like its elemental counterparts, but don’t expect it to scatter every time you cap an Earth Mystery! While Fire left you burned and Ice frozen solid, the Earth Munzee is all about Going Green. When you capture an Earth Munzee all munzees that haven’t been capped in over a year will turn into a Recycle Munzee for two hours- but only for you to see.

Name: Earth Mystery Munzee
Points:
Deploy: 50
Cap/CapOn: Split of 60 with min of 5.

Availability

Earth 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’re also excited to announce the Elemental Munzee Pak which will include 10 Fire, Ice and Earth Mystery Munzees for $40. You can also find these in the Munzee Online Store.

Speaking of the Fire and Ice Mystery Munzees, the Yetis and Dragons heard your cries and thought to bring you a nice surprise. Fire and Ice Mysteries now have an increased chance of attracting Dragons and Yetis, respectively!

Be on the lookout for Earth shattering badges to be released soon!

Have fun, and #MunzEE on! #E1EW

Valentine’s Day 2017 Special!

It’s February, and love is in the air. With Valentine’s Day rapidly approaching, many people are scrambling to make sure they get the right gift for their loved ones. Whether you have a valentine or not, though, you should always get a little something for yourself. We’re here to help with our Valentine’s Day 2017 Special!

From tomorrow (February 10th) at 00:01 MHQ time until February 19th at 23:59 MHQ time, 2017 boxes of chocolate will be on the map. These icons will bounce on greenies every six hours or when capped. When captured, three pieces of chocolate will scatter within a mile radius: Coconut Chocolate, Cherry Chocolate, and Dark Chocolate. These scattered chocolates will expire two hours after they appear or after capture, whichever comes first.

Points

Each icon will reward different points:

Box of Chocolate
Capture: 14
CapOn (for host owner): 14

Coconut Chocolate
Capture/CapOn: Split of 15 with a minimum of 5 (i.e.: 10 for capper and 5 for host owner, 5 for capper and 10 for host owner)

Cherry Chocolate

Dark Chocolate
Capture/CapOn: Split of 35 with a minimum of 5 (i.e.: 10 for capper and 25 for host owner, 30 for capper and 5 for host owner)

Badges

There are two badges that can be earned during this special: Valentine’s Day 2017 and Chocoholic.

The Valentine’s Day 2017 badge is earned by capturing the Box of Chocolate icon or any of the scattered chocolates. The Chocoholic icon is earned by capturing all three types of chocolate icons.

Be our valentine?

Munzee on!

Scatter Munzee Badge Line

Scatter Munzees can send you every which way to cap their offshoots. Munzee player “Snarf” suggested an awesome new badge line to show just how dedicated our players are to capping Scatter Munzees. We were happy to take their idea and run with it!

With that, we’re proud to announce the mind-bending Scatter Capture badge line!

The Scatter Capture badge line includes three badges: “Scatter Brained!”, “View Askew!”, and “Helter Skelter!” for capping 5, 50, and 100 Scatter Munzees, respectively.

The Scatter Capture badges will begin awarding TOMORROW (February 9th). These badges ARE retroactive.

NOTE: These badges are only for capping the original Scatter Munzee, not the ScatterED munzees. Keep an eye out for other lines that may be coming very soon. 😉

We hope you enjoy these badges!

Have fun and Munzee on!
