Munzee Places – Zoo and Animal Sanctuary Suggestions

In conjunction with our Safar-Zee March Fundraiser, we will be releasing new Places Munzees! We need your help, though!

Zoo Places Munzee

Through Wednesday, March 15th at 23:59 MHQ time, we will be taking suggestions for Zoo Places Munzee locations. These locations can be zoos, wildlife preserves, or animal sanctuaries. We will compile the suggestions and begin deploying these new Places Munzees during the month of March.

All you have to do is go to this Google Form and provide your username, the name of the proposed location, and the coordinates of the location.

Thanks in advance for your help, and Munzee on!

Let the Safar-Zee begin!

Last week we announced our March fundraising effort would focus on helping wildlife worldwide and now we’re excited to go into more detail on how YOU can help the majestic beasts of the wild.

For the month of March we will be selling Paw Print special virtual icons in the Munzee Online Store and all proceeds will go to help world wildlife rescue organizations.

These special Paw Prints will be on sale from now until the end of the month and the munzees will stay on the map through 23:59 MHQ Time on April 30, 2017.

For $5 you get a pack of 5 different Paw Print icons, each featuring a different animal print: Paw, Talon, Hoof, Foot, and Claw. Players will be limited to 20 sets of five Paw Print specials,


Points:
30 Capture, 10 Deploy, 10 CapOn

There are also a variety of badges you can earn for capping and deploying these temporary icons.The Safar-Zee, Charity Paw Prints and Animal Expedition badges will only be available while the charity specials are on the map so get to capping.

In connection to raising money for a worldwide wildlife rescue organization, we’ve also hired a new local member of the MHQ team- Meet Mystery!

To add a local spin to our worldwide initiative Munzee has adopted Mystery for the year through In-Sync Exotics, an exotic feline rescue group based out of Wylie, TX.

In order to offer Mystery and her other furry friends everything they need we have set up a permanent Munzee Virtual Garden outside of In-Sync’s headquarters. You can help make Mystery welcome to the Munzee team by purchasing a golden paw print virtual icon for $10. The pins will be automatically deployed at the location.

Points:
30 Capture, 10 Deploy, 10 CapOn

Players are limited to one paw print pin and this virtual garden will be permanently placed at 3430 Skyview Drive in Wylie, TX 75098.

Checkout the virtual garden as it grows HERE.

To learn more about In-Sync visit http://www.insyncexotics.org/.

On behalf of Team Munzee we thank our players for their support and look forward to lending a helping hand to those with paws. Munzee on!

3x Point Weekend – March 17th

The month of March is filled with an abundance of the color green. As you know, we’re quite fond of the color green ourselves, so we’re celebrating on St. Patrick’s Day weekend!

From Friday, March 17th at 00:01 MHQ time until Sunday, March 19th at 23:59 MHQ time, we’ll be having a 3x Point Weekend for our favorite green munzees, including:

  • Greenies
  • Shamrocks
  • Emeralds

This will effect all points — Deploys, Captures, and CapOns.

That’s not all, though. In celebration of St. Patrick’s Day, Leprechauns will be bouncing faster than normal. During this time frame, Leprechauns will bounce every 6 hours (or when capped) instead of every 12 hours.

We hope you enjoy the 3x Point Weekend!

Munzee on!

Prize Wheel Badges are Here!

Prize Wheel Munzees have always given a bit extra, including ZeeCred more recently, but now, they’ve got another prize for you!

We’re happy to announce a new line of badges for capturing Prize Wheel Munzees!

These badges show off some of the prizes you might get playing carnival games, but like the Jewel Collector badges, you’ll only be able to unlock one at a time. The first badge in the line is “Balloon Darts Beach Ball” badge for capturing 1 Prize Wheel Munzee.

After earning the first badge in the set, the requirements for the next will appear. These badges will start awarding tomorrow, March 9th, at 00:01 MHQ time and WILL be retroactive.

We hope you enjoy these new badges!

Good luck, and Munzee on!

Player of the Week: Deb Carter (Debolicious)

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 Deb Carter (Debolicious).

Who are you?
Hi, my name is Deb, and my player name is Debolicious. I’m a truck driver, and I am Munzee crazy. My long-suffering husband and I travel around Australia, so Munzee is the best for finding new places and exploring. I would have never seen the things I’ve seen if it wasn’t for #Munzee.

Where in the world do you live?
I live in Mackay. It’s in the beautiful tropical north of Queensland, Australia. I have only just returned from 3 years away, and I am trying my best to get more players. I am growing the map here quite quickly.

How long have you played Munzee?
I have been playing for about 3 years.

How did you find Munzee?
My best friend of 35 years Jody (nomadicjp) got me into it when Nicki (nicdchick), a lay she worked with, showed it to her. At the time, I was living in Mackay. I then moved to Perth, Western Australia and got to meet Nicki. I am now very good friends with her and a lot of Perth Munzee people. I got crazy about Munzee in Perth. That is where I learned a lot about Munzee, including the rules. Who would have thought there was a code of conduct?

What do you most enjoy about Munzee?
Being outside. I love trails in the bush the most, but sadly, I have found that most players are after quick points and tend to just UTL the well hidden ones. I love how Munzee takes you places that you would never have found it it wasn’t for the game. Now, i try to deploy in areas that I find enjoyable, places where visitors would like to see, and especially hidden spots that the average traveler would not generally find.

What is on your wish list?
I wish not to live in a places that had very few munzees and not many players (told you I am Munzee crazy). I also wish the most for an easy way to get the word out to new players in my area. Because Munzee is a business, I am finding it hard to get people to help me advertise it. I would also love for MHQ to create an all use flyer we could print off that would have all the details about the game on it since some of us don’t know how to use Photoshop. Maybe even a Zombie evolution series.

Tell us about yourself!
I would have to say the most exciting thing about my life are my awesome friends whom spoil me to no end. The highlight of my life was not only meeting Rob and Louise in real life but having some of my friends surprise me at the recent Australia Day event in Melbourne. I would like to think I’m pretty awesome, and my theory is I have lots of awesome people in my life, so if like attracts like, I too my be pretty dang awesome. 🙂

Other hobbies include:
Munzee, Munzee, Munzee. I used to dabble in photography, but now all of my time goes to Munzee and #GrowTheMap. I do love a good hike, and if I’m hiking, I;m usually struggling to breathe, so I don’t munzee on those trips. Ha ha. My other interests I guess are trying to be healthy and living a good, clean life. I have recently discovered I love cycling. Did I mention Munzee?

 

Any last words?
A shout out to my Munzee faves Brenda (Bewrightback), Julie (julesbeus), and Nicki (nicdchick). All from Perth and all whom I miss dearly living on the wrong side of the country. I’m pretty sure these are the ladies who nominated me. I am so super excited to be nominated and have a title. Thank you so very much, Munzeeland. I don’t know what I would be doing without you. xx #E1EW

PS: A link to my garden if you would like to throw a Virtual at me 🙂

Debolicious also include some socials, so cap away!

Newsletter: February 2017

February showed us a lot of love! We released some awesome new coinz, had some great specials and announced a new operation we’ve put way more than 1,000 hours into.

Take a look back on some of the things that happened last month and what to expect in March as well! 


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 range of Mission difficulty levels that require a variety of Munzee skills.

Learn more at zeeops.munzee.com!

 


Chocoholic

This February love was in the air- love of chocolate that is. We released Chocloate Heart Boxes that released three different kinds of chocolate when capped. Capping all three earned players an empty box of chocolate badge. Whether you had a Valentine or not, MHQ wanted to make sure you got something sweet!


Furry Forest Friends

This month 1,500 Faun Mythological Munzees scurried onto the map to greenies and Earth Mystery Munzees worldwide.The first of our Classical Mythological Munzee set, these furry forest dwellers are attracted to Earth Mystery Munzees, which were also released this month.

Order Earth Mystery Munzees and Elemental Munzee Paks today!

 


Tea Time!

Easter will be here before we know it, so we gleefully announced that the whole of April is open for you to host and attend Munzee Tea Parties! The inspiration for these came from all round the world, so thank you for letting us know about your Easter and spring traditions

Be sure to get your event on the Munzee Calendar ASAP because there will be an art work deadline in a couple of weeks based on demand.

 


Hidden In Plain Sight

We’ve added some new Urban Camo munzees to the Online Store! These new designs are perfect for hiding the game pieces in public without worrying about them getting ripped up.These four new designs are available now for $7.50 for 20 stickers.

We’ve also changed the prices on the Mini Urban Camo Munzees to $5 for 20 stickers.

 


Coming in March…

– We’re going to have a ROARing good time this month.

– The middle of the month is looking awfully GREEN.

– The CAT may be out of the bag for Birthday planning!

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!
