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.

– Thumbs up are in order.

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!

Air Mystery Munzees and Zodiac Credits

Can you feel change in the air? We’re proud to announce the creation of the Air Mystery Munzee!

This new virtual Elemental Munzee is the first of it’s kind. When capped, the Air Mystery Munzee scatters three temporary virtual Feathers in a mile radius for two hours or until capped. When those feathers are captured, they have a chance of throwing three temporary virtual Golden Feathers within a mile radius for two hours or until capped.

These scattered feathers will not land on other munzees but instead will be newly deployed munzees that will be archived after capture or time has expired.

Air Mystery Munzees are being released exclusively to Virtual MunzPak subscribers until they go on sale next month. Be one of the first to deploy an Air Mystery Munzee and sign up for MunzPak HERE.

Points:

Deploy: 50
Capture/CapOn: Split of 60 with 5 min

Feather Capture: 5
Golden Feather: 25

Not Blastable

Capture Radius: 300ft

Proximity: 300ft from any other Air Mystery; 150ft from your other munzees; 50ft from other people’s munzees

We’re also excited to announce that this month’s physical MunzPak subscribers will receive the all new Zodiac Munzee credit. This credit item works just like the regular Zodiacs, but instead of choosing which month you want to deploy the credit will automatically deploy as the current month. This means it will be worth double points as soon as you deploy it!

 

 

Thanks so much to all of our players for helping make our 6th Birthday a truly spectacular one! Munzee on!

Rob’s Munzee Birthday Euro Trip!

As you probably know, Rob went to Europe earlier this month to attend some Spectacular 6th Birthday events. He wasn’t disappointed, to say the least, and he wanted to share some of his experiences with you.


Our 6th birthday month has been nothing short of amazing. More than 100 events have been hosted all around the world, but I’d like to share some kudos to a few special events I attended.

The OWL events in Germany brought together over 250 players from 13 nations, in Bielefeld and Paderborn over the weekend of July 7-9. The hosts prepared for a full year with a goal of producing the largest events in Munzee history and were successful at meeting that goal. I had a great time walking the streets, trails, and parks with dafi87 (our German team member Daniel Fischer) and many other players. The relaxed environment of each event allowed for many conversations over good food and a bier or two. 😉

The following weekend I was able to visit our players in Finland. I would like to thank mandello, sivontim, and jesnou for transporting me around the country and helping me enjoy my time there. It was great to meet over 100 players in the seaside town of Turku. The weather was perfect and it was nice to walk along the docks playing Munzee and watching locals try to figure out what we were doing.

The next day was a trip to Helsinki for the final event of my European trip. After walking a long trail of Evolution Munzees, we arrived at a nice park where more than 50 players enjoyed a nice Eventzee hunt in addition to a great Munzee Event Trail. I had a great time using magnets and watching a few players run back and forth across the park chasing myths. After the event, as a proper sendoff, I had the opportunity to enjoy a traditional Finnish meal. It was a sort of reindeer stew with mashed potatoes, gherkins, and lingonberries followed by a strawberry cheesecake for dessert. Absolutely delicious and the perfect end to an amazing birthday trip.

I appreciate the gifts shared with me from all the players and hosts of the 6 events, and will cherish the memories and display the gifts proudly at MHQ. Until we meet again, Munzee On!

Garfield Virtual Icons and The Tourism Filter!

With Matt and Rob en route to Munzee, IN, we’re excited to offer some more details on the virtual Garfield icons that will be available!

These virtual icons are located at each of the Garfield statues in Muncie, IN and Grant County. Garfields will be released at the Saturday morning event at McCulloch Park. You’ll earn 78 points for each Garfield statue captured, which is based on the year Garfield was first published- 1978. Even if you can’t make it to Muncie for the events this weekend, the Garfield virtual icons will be permanent, so stop by on your travels and enjoy some time with the fat cat in the future.

We’re also introducing a new Tourism filter that will include Garfield virtual icons and the Texas Historical Markers. We hope to expand to more tourism destinations soon, so stay tuned for more in the future.

There will also be an Eventzee photo scavenger hunt connected to all of the unique Garfield statues for the weekend. You can scan that join code at the Saturday morning event as well. Say (lasagna) cheese!

We hope you’re all as excited as we are to celebrate Munzee’s 6th birthday in Muncie! Matt and Rob will also be joined by Daniel “hksfarm” Hammock and Dale n’ Barb from Spacecoast Geo Store, so come join members of Team MHQ and the lasagna loving Garfield for what’s sure to be a fun weekend.

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!

MHQ 6th Birthday Bash Recap!

We had a SUPER good time during MHQ’s Birthday Bash! Players from all over joined us for a fun afternoon at the MHQ offices last Friday. They walked away with Birthday Comic skinned stickers, were the first to get their hands on some awesome Munzee Worldwide apparel, and earned more than a couple badges! Everyone showed off their heroic profiles in the Eventzee photo backdrop with a wide array of superhero costumes.

Thank you again to everyone who came and we’re excited to see all of you and more at MHQ Bash in the Fall!

Even if you couldn’t make it out to MHQ’s Birthday Bash, there are still a bunch of 6th Birthday events going on all around the world. Join Rob and Matt in Munzee, IN this weekend for even more fun.

Happy birthday to us and Munzee on!

Check out the photo gallery below to see some of the fun!
