Munzee Artwork Posters!

One of the many great things about Munzee is the never-ending supply of unique, sometimes absurd, artwork that our designers continue to churn out day after day. The many different styles of our graphic designers have become a hallmark of the game so we’re excited to be able to offer some of those pieces as posters in the online store.

Currently we have a handful of designs including the ZeeOps Mission Icons, the completed Birthday Comic Panel and Timeshare Munzee badges. We’d love for more suggestions about your favorite Munzee, WallaBee and Eventzee artwork though, so let us know!

Posters come in a variety of sizes and prices, so whether you’re decorating your office or your home there’s a fit for you!

Check out the collection in the Munzee Online Store HERE

Munzee Newsletter: June 2017 Wrap-Up

We spent a lot of June preparing for Birthday month in July, but we were happy to make some big announcements too. Take a look back on some of the things that happened last month and what to expect this month as well!

Version 3.3.3 of the Munzee app was released in June. Make sure you have the most up to date version at the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store.

New Features/Fixes:

– We’ve added an in-app ZeeOps dashboard to track your operations.
– The main menu now features accompanying icons for all entries.
– Badge details now show the original description even after a badge has been earned.
– The coin discover request popup will now only show as toast message (transparent at the bottom) when not on the coins page.
– Improved scanner (focus issues for some phones are fixed)
– Minor fixes and improvements


 

Just Add Water! 

The floodgates have opened and the latest Elemental Munzee is now for sale- Welcome the Water Mystery Munzee!

This physical munzee type may hold the key to the Fountain of Youth, but it is not without its risks. When you cap the scattered water droplet you have the chance of drinking pure water, toxic water or salt water!

Purchase Water Mysteries and other Elementals in the Munzee Store!


 

Virtual Reality 

Wouldn’t it be great if you could easily swap out old virtual munzees in popular destinations for newer virtuals worth more points? Well now you can with the new Virt Swap tool! Using the Munzee website you can now go back to your older virtual type munzees and swap in new virtual types and MVMs.

Stock up on new MVMs in the Munzee Online Store!


 

Opposites Attract 

Can you feel the attraction? In June we revealed the Munzee Magnets as a part of July Physical MunzPaks! These brand new items are temporary credits you can use to attract Seasonal Specials and Mythological Munzees for a set amount of time. It’s easy, you just Magnetize a greenie of your choosing and that munzee will then attract up to 3 specials or myths for up to one hour!

Sign up for a Physical MunzPak and get 10 Magnet credits!


 

Garfield GO

Munzee was proud to work with our partner Freeze Tag to launch Garfield GO this month!

Garfield GO is a brand new augmented reality treasure hunting game, featuring everyone’s favorite lasagna-loving cat! Odie has scattered Garfield’s comic collection and buried treasures around the world — Help Garfield get them all back, while scavenging for hidden chests along the way!

The game is currently available in Australia, Canada, and the US via the App store and Google Play.


 

Coming in July…

– Spectacular 6th Birthday Comic Book Specials are on the map!

– Check out the Calendar to find a Munzee Birthday Event near you!

Introducing Munzee Magnets!

Can you feel the attraction? We’re proud to announce a new gameplay feature called Magnets!

These brand new items are temporary credits you can use to attract Seasonal Specials and Mythological Munzees for a set amount of time. It’s easy, you just Magnetize a greenie of your choosing and that munzee will then attract up to 3 specials or myths for up to one hour! The magnet expires at the end of the hour or after the 3rd capture.

Think of it like a temporary shamrock or elemental that also attracts seasonal specials like the Birthday Comic Book specials. So now if you live in a less populated Munzee area you can increase your chances of capping specials and myths!

Magnetizing a munzee from the app is easy!

  1. Choose the Greenie you want to magnetize.
  2. Go to the Munzee Details page.
  3. Click on the three dots icon in the upper righthand corner.
  4. Click “Magnetize” and confirm.
  5. Wait for the fun to begin!

You can also Magnetize a munzee from the web! 

  1. Go to munzee.com/map
  2. Click on the munzee you want to Magnetize and go to the Munzee’s page
  3. Scroll down and on the lower righthand side is a button that say “Magnetize”
  4. Click confirm and go find that Munzee!

Click the image to enlarge it.

A few things to note:

  • When a Magnetized munzee brings a special or a myth anyone can cap it, so be quick or be nice and share with friends!
  • You’ll be able to Magnetize munzees you have already capped as well as your own munzees since you can cap specials on those.
  • You can see how many Magnets you have on the Credits page of the app or web.
  • Magnets will go on sale in August. Premium Members can expect some magnetic attraction next month too.

Magnet credits are currently exclusive to Physical MunzPak subscribers until they go on sale next month. You’ll receive ten Munzee magnets in your July Physical MunzPak subscription so if you haven’t signed up do it NOW!

Even though the Magnets are currently exclusive to MunzPak subscribers, it’s our birthday so we wanted to share the love a bit. Event hosts who are throwing Munzee Birthday party packages will also have the opportunity to buy Magnets to be used at their events. This will help bring some fun for your Event guests! You need to email Louise if you are interested in adding these to your event but remember she is cycling this weekend so don’t expect an immediate response.

***Event Details Edit*** Magnets may be purchased by event hosts. They are added to the event account only and event pricing is $10 for 10 magnets (maximum of 10 per event account).

We’re excited to see how you all use Magnets to your advantage! Happy hunting and Munzee on!

Spectacular 6th Birthday Specials!

It’s hard to believe that it’s already been six years since Munzee was launched. It’s surpassed anything the co-founders could have imagined as a game, company, and community. As you probably have noticed, we tend to celebrate, especially our birthday. So take a peek at what we have going on for our Spectacular 6th Birthday!

Specials

Like most 6 year olds, we love comics and superheroes so be prepared to cap special comic books! Starting tomorrow (July 1st) at 00:01 MHQ time, 2011 Spectacular 6th Birthday Special icons will be on the map. These icons will bounce on greenies every 6 hours or when captured.

When captured, these will scatter three onomatopoeia icons within one mile for two hours or until capped.

Each of these are worth 17 Capture points and 11 CapOn points for the host owner. You CAN capture these on your own greenies, and all four specials will count towards the new Specials Badges line.

The scattered icons will also have another surprise. Each of the three icons will award a different badge. Your goal is to collect all three.

When you collect all three of the badges, you will also earn the completed comic book page.

Earned by capturing all three of the scattered icons.

These icons will be on the map until July 31st at 23:59 MHQ time.

Flat Robs and Flat Matts

As we noted in our latest podcast, Flat Robs and Flat Matts will spend quite a bit of time on the map during the month of July:

Flat Robs:

  • 1st-16th
  • 21st-23rd
  • 28th-31st

Flat Matts:

  • 1st-10th
  • 14th-15th
  • 21st-26th
  • 28th-31st

They will also be available in the Munzee Online Store during the month starting tomorrow.

Birthday Sale

During Birthday Month, we will also be having a variety of sales. Starting tomorrow (July 1st) at 00:01 MHQ time, the following items will be on sale:

Throughout the month, other items will be on sale, so keep an eye out for more information on those!

Prizes and Giveaways

As always, keep an eye on our social media pages for prizes, giveaways, and contests.

We hope you enjoy Birthday Month. We know we will!

Munzee on!

ZeeOps: July Missions

Agents, due to your hard work in June the contaminated outlier strain of Evolution Munzees has been controlled. Despite investigations into what caused the issue, there have been few leads as to who was behind the leak. ZeeOps Agents must focus on forward though, so prepare for this month’s Operations.  

Since the leaders of the Mean Green Gang have seemingly all been eradicated Director Zee has kicked off a probation program for former MGG members. The program has been named “Going Green.” He has requested that ZeeOps agents worldwide begin rounding up Mean Greenies to present them the opportunity to join forces. The program has been met with some resistance from both ZeeOps agents and former Mean Green Gang operatives though, so be careful.

July 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 Specials Badges!

We’re excited to announce the release of a new line of badges for capturing special seasonal munzees!

Nearly every month we release new limited time specials and we want to award our players for capturing these year round! In the past we have released hoverboards, groundhogs and much more so always be on the lookout for new, unique specials.

The Specials Badges are now LIVE and you can start earning them when the next special is released! These badges will NOT be retroactive, but moving forward every new seasonal special we release will count. They may not be totally retroactive, but these badges will include all captures from the World Turtle Day specials that went out in May.

You might also keep your eyes out, we hear someone’s birthday is coming up…

These badges will remain hidden so we can keep you guessing, but here is a look at the first badge:

Special Hunter- Capture 10 Munzee Specials of any type.

Introducing the Virtual Swap!

Wouldn’t it be great if you could easily swap out old virtual munzees in popular destinations for newer virtuals worth more points? Well now you can!

We’re excited to announce that you can now easily swap out many virtual munzees!

Using the Munzee website you can now go back to your older virtual type munzees and swap in new virtual types and MVMs. By using the Virt Swap tool, you can instantly archive your old virtual type munzee and deploy the new one in the exact same spot. No waiting periods and no losing your spot! This also opens up the opportunity for players to re-capture high density areas, if new virtuals are deployed.

With the Virt Swap tool almost any virtual type can be replaced by almost any virtual type.**

For example, you can swap an old green virtual for a new virtual sapphire in the exact same location. You could also swap an old yellow mystery virtual for a new MVM and add a yellow color credit. It’s good as new and ready for people to come and cap it! Imagine the cap on points you will receive with the strategically placed MVM versus the old virtual points.

Please note that when you swap out an old virtual you must use a new munzee that has not been previously deployed. Since you’re swapping out for a totally new munzee the points for the old virt captures will not change.

To celebrate the release of this new tool MVMs are on sale for $4 and for every MVM purchased you’ll get a free color credit as well. Go to the Munzee Online Store and stock up now! 

To swap out a virtual just do the following:

  1. Go to your online Munzee profile.
  2. Go to your undeployed munzees and copy the number code from the replacement virtual item URL.
  3. Go to your deployed munzees and choose the virtual you want to replace.
  4. Click “Edit Details,” scroll down and paste the new number code in the specified area.

Check out the video below to see the Virt Swap in action (you may need to pause and rewind to fully get it):

**You cannot change any of the following munzees using the Virt Swap tool:

All Physicals
All MHQ created Virtual Gardens
Social
Event Pin
Virtual Emerald
Personal Munzee
Event Indicator
Virtual Trail
Virtual Resort
Virtual Resort Room
