Munzee Hurricane Harvey Relief Update!

A HUGE thank you is in order to all of our players worldwide! Through the sale of Water Mysteries and Assorted Mini Packs, as well as WallaBee Mixers, we gathered $7,500 in donations for Hurricane Harvey Relief!

This is a huge testament to the compassion of our community and our players all across the world. We have donated $7,000 of the funds to the American Red Cross in their constant relief efforts in South Texas, and preparation for Hurricane Irma bearing down on Florida. We’re also happy to announce that we have donated $500 to our friends at Shutt’er Down Ranch. They went down to Southeast Texas with supplies and helped rescue animals who were displaced due to the storm. Their work continues and we are happy to support them at this time.

We can’t express how proud we are to have such a great community that rallies around those in need. Thank you, again, for your support and generosity.

Munzee on!

Introducing Places Streak Badges!

After expanding the Places capture badge line last week we’re excited to announce new streak badges for capturing Places Munzees! One of the great things about Places Munzees is that you can capture them every day and visit your favorite Places over and over again. Because of this we want our players to see how long they can keep the streak going.

To earn these badges you will just have to consecutively capture a Places Munzee for a week, a month and a year.

CAUTION: MUNZEERS AT WORK – Capture any Places Munzee for 7 days in a row.

Now even though you can cap the same Places Munzee everyday you can also earn the badge by capturing any Places Munzee worldwide. That way you can still travel and capture lots of fun Places all while keeping your streak going.

You can currently buy Places Munzees in the Munzee online store, so help out your fellow travelers and deploy a few Places! You can buy one of each Places Munzee a month.

These badges go live Thursday August 31st at 15:00 MHQ and they will be retroactive in case you’ve already started capping them daily.  We’re excited to see all the Places you’ll go! Good luck and Munzee on!

Hurricane Harvey Relief Sale

As you may know, Southeast Texas was hit by a major hurricane late last week. Hurricane Harvey was a Category 4 hurricane when it made landfall north of Corpus Christi, Texas and has since moved north causing catastrophic damage in the Houston area. It has also caused flooding in Austin and San Antonio and is expected to affect Louisiana as well.

Many members of Team Munzee have family and friends, including members of the Munzee community, who live in affected areas. This is a very worrisome time, and the impact of this disaster may have a global impact. We want to show that Munzee and our community are here to support those in need.

Starting at 12:00 MHQ time TODAY, Water Mystery Munzees and 20-packs of assorted mini generic munzees* will be on sale with 100% of the proceeds being donated to relief for victims of Hurricane Harvey via American Red Cross. Water Mystery Munzees (pack of 10) will be available for $15 and the 20-packs of assorted mini generic munzees will be available for $3.50. These will be available until Thursday, August 31st at 23:59 MHQ time.

All of those people that have been affected are in our thoughts, and we want to help as much as possible.

Munzee on!


*The 20-packs of assorted mini generic munzees can include: Minis, Mini Urban Camos, or skinned mini generics.

Player of the Week: Jeen Huisman (J1Huisman)

As Munzee has grown over the years, the game has evolved in so many more ways than any of the co-founders could have imagined. We’ve certainly had our fair share of growing pains, but in its essence Munzee has tried to stick to its core goal of getting people out into the world. No one knows this better than those players who have been with us since the beginning. This week’s Player of the Week is Jeen Huisman (J1Huisman).

Who are you?
I’m Jeen Huisman, playing the game as J1Huisman.

Where in the world do you live?
I’m living in Zwolle, the Netherlands.

How long have you played Munzee?
Since October 2013.

How did you find Munzee?
I didn’t find Munzee, Munzee found me. Some members of the team I was working with in those days, including me, we caching. We wanted to introduce the game to another coworkers, but that coworker went googling and found Munzee as a new GPS-based game and said, “Why don’t we try this?” So we did, and bit by bit we got hooked on Munzee. So, thanks to “BaDo”, the game was introduced in the Apeldoorn region.

What do you most enjoy about Munzee?
Teaming up with other players and travelling to Munzee fields together; visiting events and hunting down Mythologicals. Munzee brought me back on my bike and made me more fit again by lowering my weight by several kilos. Most captured of Mythologicals in the Zwolle region have been made biking around.

What is on your wish list?
Visiting the United States, especially MHQ in McKinney and capping exclusive local munzees.

Tell us about yourself!
I’m an IT Systems and Application Administrator, happily married for over 30 years (hint, hint, did you already capture that social>>) with Hettie. She joined the Munzee community as “Pinkeltje” in July of this year. We have a daughter (Inge) and a son (Niels). I think most players will have recognized my love for the Frisian Cow in my avatar.

I’m a part of the Munzee clan “Elmbridge Hundred Clan of 1086” with English, American, Swiss, and Dutch players.

Other hobbies include:
Biking, solving puzzles (e.g. sudoku)

Any last words?
Many thanks to the players who wrote to Munzee for my nomination.

J1Huisman has also included some socials, so cap away!

Introducing the Treasure Evolution Munzee!

Our resellers are great at promoting and being ambassadors for Munzee and its community. Over the past few years, we’ve worked with them to bring new ideas and game pieces, like the Reseller Unique Munzees (RUMs), to the game. Now, we’re happy to introduce a new item for our resellers: the Treasure Evolution Munzee!

The Treasure Evolution Munzee, like other Evolution Munzees, consists of three stages: Coin, Bag of Coins, and Treasure Chest.

The points for the Treasure Evolution Munzee are as follows:

Deploy: 20 Points

Capture

  • Coin: 10 Points
  • Bag of Coins: 15 Points
  • Treasure Chest: 20 Points

CapOn

  • Coin: 5 Points
  • Bag of Coins: 10 Points
  • Treasure Chest: 15 Points

The Treasure Evolution Munzee will affect the Evolution badge lines, and will be visible in the physical Evolution filter in the app.

Treasure Evolution Munzees will be available from Authorized Resellers TODAY at 16:00 MHQ time.

We hope you enjoy the Treasure Evolution Munzee!

Munzee on!

Introducing University Places Munzees!

As August comes to an end, many schools around the world start a new school year. MHQ wants to celebrate that by introducing our next type of Places Munzee: Universities!

University Places Munzees, like the previous Places Munzees we released last month, are deployed on player accounts and have the same point and proximity structure. You can see all of the Places Munzees on the Places Map, and if you need a refresher on how to deploy Places Munzees, you can check out our previous blog post.

Details

Points

  • Deploy: 25
  • Capture: 10
  • CapOn: 5

Proximity: 1 mile from other Places Munzees

Capture Radius: 1000ft

Multi-Capture: These can be captured 1 time per MHQ day

Badges: These will count toward the Places capture badges.

Criteria

Like the other Places Munzees, there are certain criteria that we look for when approving University Places Munzees:

  • Most Importantly: University Places Munzees must be deployed at a University/College. Please no college annex buildings at grade schools (common in parts of the US).
  • Only 1 University Places Munzee will be allowed per campus. When deploying, please try and position the munzee at the main entrance on the university/college campus.
  • The university/college must be accessible to all, not a private/closed campus.
  • No research institutions unless they are part of a university/college system.

Our ZenDesk will be updated to reflect this information.

University Places Munzees will be available at 15:00 MHQ time TOMORROW (August 22nd, 15:00 CST) for $10 USD. All current Places Munzees will be removed from the store until then as well in order to add this new type. You will be able to find all Places Munzees for sale here August 22nd, 15:00 CST.

Munzee On!

Expanded Myth Capture Badges!

With the release of the Pegasus Mythological Munzee alongside the rerelease of all past Myths, we figured it was time to update the capture line of badges for each.

Now each Mythological has a total of 6 capture badges each. Remember that these are for capturing unique Mythological Munzees, so these will depend on capturing different numbered Myths.

Badges have been expanded for all of the Myths:

  • Unicorn
  • Leprechaun
  • Dragon
  • Yeti
  • Faun
  • Hydra
  • Pegasus

We’re won’t show all of the badges in the blog, but here is an example of what to expect:

All of the expanded capture badges are retroactive and now available to earn. These badges aren’t for the casual player, but we know you guys will keep motivated! Munzee on!
