Munzee Newsletter: August 2017 Wrap-Up

Although August usually tends to be a cool down after July’s big birthday month, this year we kept very busy! We gave our players a hand, flew high in the sky and even started treasure hunting. Take a look back on some of the things that happened last month and what to expect this month as well!

A HUGE thank you is in order to all of our players worldwide! Our community pulled together to help out after the devastating effects of Hurricane Harvey in South Texas. Through the sale of Water Mysteries and Assorted Mini Packs, as well as WallaBee Mixers, we gathered $7,500 in donations for relief efforts.

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.


Leftie Loosy

To celebrate International Left Handers Day and all of our left-handed players, we released a fun special at the beginning of the month! The Leftie Specials bounced all over the globe and to recognize the 10% of the population that is left handed these specials also had a 10% chance of scattering a Left Handed Thumbs Up icon.

The Thumbs Up were pretty rare to come by, but Munzee Magnets helped out!


High Flyers

This month the majestic Pegasus Mythological Munzee took to the skies. Although other Myths like the Faun and Hydra land on Greenies and specific physical Elemental Munzees, the Pegasus is a different kind of beast. The Pegasus bounces on all colors of Virtual Munzees, Mystery Virtual Munzees, and MVMs as well as Air Mystery Munzees.

Air Mystery Munzees are currently available in the Munzee Online Store! 


Treasure Tropes

Avast, me hearties! This month we announced the new Treasure Evolution Munzee as a Munzee reseller exclusive! Our resellers are great at promoting and being ambassadors for Munzee and its community so thank you to them for helping us grow the game! Like other Evolution Munzees, the Treasure Munzee consists of three stages and evolves over time.

Purchase Treasure Munzees through one of our Munzee Resellers! 


Bodacious Badges

We released a ton of new badges last month!

The elementals stormed in with Earth, Water and Air Mystery badges.

You’ll be going Places with the new Places Munzee Streak badges as well as the expanded Places Capture badges.

With the release of the Pegasus we expanded all of the various badges for capturing Myths.


September News:

– We’re going ALL IN!

– Stay in shape, fight Fit.

– All the colors of the Rainbow.

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!

Matt’s West Bend, Wisconsin Recap

Howdy, everyone!

Matt here. As you’ve probably noticed, I’ve been on the road quite a bit recently. This past weekend, I attended a great event in West Bend, Wisconsin ahead of the West Bend Cache Ba$h.

First off, thanks to Dale (SpaceCoastGeoStore), Barb (DalenBarb), and Bob (Whelen) for hosting and putting together the event. Thirty people scanned the Event Indicator, and we all had a great time scanning the traveling Personal books and capping the trail that Whelen deployed around the park area where the event was held. Joshua Johnson (mayberryman) aka The Geocaching Vlogger stopped by for the event, and we found a unicorn.

I also got to meet this week’s Player of the Week, BigNate27.

I want to say thank you to all of the local players who have been very kind when I’ve been to Wisconsin as well as the all of the players who made the trip to the event. I can’t wait to see you all again.

I’ll be out at events again soon, and I’m looking forward to seeing old Munzee friends and meeting new ones!

Munzee on!

The Pegasus Mythological!

We’re proud to announce the latest in the Classical Mythology set of munzees, the high-flying Pegasus!

On Tuesday, August 15th at 15:00 MHQ time, 1,600 Pegasus Mythological Munzees will be available in the Munzee Online Store for $20.00 each. Like the other Mythologicals, each player is limited to one (1) Pegasus Munzee per account, and the sale is open to anyone regardless of other Mythological ownership.

Although other Myths like the Faun and Hydra land on Greenies and specific physical Elemental Munzees, the Pegasus is a different kind of beast. The Pegasus will bounce on all colors of Virtual Munzees, Mystery Virtual Munzees, and MVMs as well as Air Mystery Munzees every 12 hours or when captured. Because this Mythological is attracted to so many different kinds of virtuals it will not be attracted to Munzee Magnets.

Details:

Name: The Pegasus

Description: The Pegasus Munzee bounces on all colors of Virtual Munzeess, Mystery Virtual Munzees, and MVMs as well as Air Mystery Munzees every 12 hours or when capped. Each is numbered and owned by a Munzee player. Only 1 Pegasus Munzee is allowed per account. You will also earn the Pegasus badge for owning a Pegasus Munzee.

Points:

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

There is also a line of badges for capturing unique Pegasus Munzees.

To celebrate the release of the Pegasus, we’re also putting 100 more of each past Mythological Munzee for sale on August 15th at 15:00 MHQ time. These will still be limited to one per player account, so if you have one you will not be able to get another. We’ve seen a lot of new players join recently, so here is your chance to own a growing part of the game.

Thank you to everyone for their excitement regarding the Mythological Munzees. Be on the lookout to find a Pegasus near you! Munzee on!

Munzee Newsletter: July 2017 Wrap-Up

Birthday month has come and gone and with the help of our players we celebrated six years in a very big way! Take a look back on some of the things that happened last month and what to expect this month as well!

We ended Birthday Month with some HUGE news: Munzee and our partner Freeze Tag Inc. are merging companies! For the last year, Munzee and Freeze Tag have been working together in various ways on Garfield GO! and as the saying goes “two heads are better than one.” The leadership team at Freeze Tag are top notch guys with vast experience in building apps and bringing in new players.

We are excited to see their team join the Munzee family and help us all Grow the Game(s)!


Birthday BAM!

To celebrate 6 spectacular years, we released Comic Book special icons for the entire month. When captured the specials scattered three onomatopoeia icons- BAM!, POW! and BANG! Players who managed to capture all 3 were able to earn a special comic book panel badge too!

These alongside the Munzee Magnets were an awesome way to kick off Birthday Month!


Extraordinary Events 

Birthday Events were a huge hit last month! There were 110 events that took place throughout July and the 6th Birthday Super Rob special was capped an amazing 4,673 times! We also reached new highs with the events in Germany being the first to hit over 250 attendees, something we haven’t even done at MHQ! Thank you to all of our awesome Event Hosts!

Remember, you can host your own events by submitting them HERE!


Oh, The Places You’ll Go! 

Last month we were proud to announce that Places Munzeesare now available to the public for purchase! Now players can deploy their own Airports, Sports Stadiums, Wildlife and Museum munzees all across the world.

You can purchase Places Munzees in the Munzee Online Store!


A Breath of Fresh Air 

At the tailend of Birthday Month we were proud to announce the creation of the Air Mystery Munzee! This virtual Elemental Munzee is the first of it’s kind and is currently exclusive to Virtual MunzPak subscribers in August. When capped, the Air Mystery Munzee scatters three temporary virtual Feathers. When those feathers are captured, they have a chance of throwing three ultra rare temporary virtual Golden Feathers.

You can still sign up for August’s Virtual MunzPak HERE!


August News:

– Master the elements with new Elemental Munzee badges!

– High-flying fun is on the way.

Birthday Events Wrap-Up

Birthday month has officially ended, but it was a resounding success. Members of Team Munzee loved visiting player events all across the world, which couldn’t have been done without the help of Louise, the Munzee Events Manager. Check out her quick recap of last month’s festivities!


It’s August, our birthday month is finally over, wow, what a busy month that was!!!

Thank you to all of you for your incredible support of Munzee events last month. There were 110 events that took place throughout July and the 6th Birthday Super Rob special was capped an amazing 4,673 times! We gave out thousands of Emeralds with the Dan the Man special and have some fantastic new gardens around the world. We also reached new highs with the events in Germany being the first to hit over 250 attendees, something we haven’t even done at MHQ!

I particularly enjoyed working with new hosts last month, great to see players stepping forward to grow the game in their areas. Please feel free to get into hosting at any time. I will guide you through the whole process and issue you with all the instructions and information you need.

Thank you also for your patience with me over the last month, I was extremely busy with my bicycle races too. Happy to report they are all now completed and I had a wonderful time and picked up a few more wins and fantastic experiences both in England and the French Alps.

I am now recovering at MHQ and catching up with work. I am still shutting down some of the birthday events and awarding host badges so don’t worry if you haven’t got yours yet!

Look out for some more events near your on the calendar (link https://calendar.munzee.com/) over the next couple of months, get your events on the calendar (link https://calendar.munzee.com/submit) and I look forward to communicating details of our next big events drive soon.

Munzee On!
