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!

ZeeOps: September Missions

Despite Director Zee’s return, little has been spoken regarding the First Clan’s ominous warnings of the war to come. The Director insists we must continue to focus on the work at hand, because peace is only temporary in this line of work.

Mysterious Zodiac symbols have begun showing up all across the world. It’s up to you to investigate and report back to HQ.

The Zodiac Munzees appear to be reactive to the stars and the time of year. Reports also suggest a masked vigilante is behind the ominous deploys. Be careful and if you come across this Zodiac Vigilante, do not engage until we can figure out his motives.

September ZeeOps Operations are now live and you can begin planning your Missions to start on the following day. You can plan your Operations at munzee.com/ops/ and purchase more ZeeCred in the Munzee Online Store. You can also track your Missions in the new Munzee app update.

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!
