Team Munzee to Participate in Tour de Cure!

Last year, we introduced MunzFit as part of our March fundraiser for Skylar, the MDA, and the MNDA. MunzFit events were meant as a way to get our community (and our team) active while playing Munzee. We’ve continued to push ourselves to be more active in our daily lives since then, and now, we’re making another push.

On October 14th, members of Team Munzee will be participating in the American Diabetes Association’s 2017 DFW Tour de Cure. This event consists of a 5k walk/run or cycling up to 62 miles to raise funds and awareness for diabetes. Many members of the team have been directly affected by diabetes, whether it be by friends, family, or personal battles, and a few have taken part in a Tour de Cure event in the past.

We’d like to invite any Munzee community members to join us in our endeavor by participating, donating, or just cheering us on. If you would like to join our team or make a donation, you can follow this link to our Team Page. (Please read all of the information and requirements before signing up to participate.) If you would like to come cheer us on, we’ll be hosting an event of sorts. It is on the Munzee Calendar, and more information will be coming soon.

We’ve also created a Team Munzee cycling club on Strava (a running and cycling tracking social network). If you’d like to join, you can find us here.

Limited quantities of merchandise based on our custom jerseys will be available in the Munzee Online Store soon, but here’s a sneak peak.

 

The Tour de Cure is just part of what we have planned for the upcoming months, so keep an eye out for some more exciting announcements.

Munzee on!

Introducing University Places Munzees!

As August comes to an end, many schools around the world start a new school year. MHQ wants to celebrate that by introducing our next type of Places Munzee: Universities!

University Places Munzees, like the previous Places Munzees we released last month, are deployed on player accounts and have the same point and proximity structure. You can see all of the Places Munzees on the Places Map, and if you need a refresher on how to deploy Places Munzees, you can check out our previous blog post.

Details

Points

  • Deploy: 25
  • Capture: 10
  • CapOn: 5

Proximity: 1 mile from other Places Munzees

Capture Radius: 1000ft

Multi-Capture: These can be captured 1 time per MHQ day

Badges: These will count toward the Places capture badges.

Criteria

Like the other Places Munzees, there are certain criteria that we look for when approving University Places Munzees:

  • Most Importantly: University Places Munzees must be deployed at a University/College. Please no college annex buildings at grade schools (common in parts of the US).
  • Only 1 University Places Munzee will be allowed per campus. When deploying, please try and position the munzee at the main entrance on the university/college campus.
  • The university/college must be accessible to all, not a private/closed campus.
  • No research institutions unless they are part of a university/college system.

Our ZenDesk will be updated to reflect this information.

University Places Munzees will be available at 15:00 MHQ time TOMORROW (August 22nd, 15:00 CST) for $10 USD. All current Places Munzees will be removed from the store until then as well in order to add this new type. You will be able to find all Places Munzees for sale here August 22nd, 15:00 CST.

Munzee On!

Expanded Myth Capture Badges!

With the release of the Pegasus Mythological Munzee alongside the rerelease of all past Myths, we figured it was time to update the capture line of badges for each.

Now each Mythological has a total of 6 capture badges each. Remember that these are for capturing unique Mythological Munzees, so these will depend on capturing different numbered Myths.

Badges have been expanded for all of the Myths:

  • Unicorn
  • Leprechaun
  • Dragon
  • Yeti
  • Faun
  • Hydra
  • Pegasus

We’re won’t show all of the badges in the blog, but here is an example of what to expect:

All of the expanded capture badges are retroactive and now available to earn. These badges aren’t for the casual player, but we know you guys will keep motivated! Munzee on!

International Left Handers Day Specials!

Lefties Unite! To celebrate International Left Handers Day and all of our left-handed players, we’ve put together a fun new special for the weekend. Starting at 00:01 MHQ on Friday August 11th, 1,976 Left Handed icons will be on the map until  23:59 MHQ on Sunday August 13th.

The Leftie Specials will bounce on greenies every 6 hours or when captured. To celebrate the 10% of the population that is left handed these specials will also have a 10% chance of scattering a Left Handed Thumbs Up icon.

Points for these specials are as follows:

  • Left Handed Icon: Split of 76 points between the capture and the host owner with a minimum of 19
  • Left Handed Thumbs Up Icon: 76 points for Capture and CapOn

You can also earn a badge for capturing both the Left Handed Special and the Left Handed Thumbs Up.

Remember that these will count towards the Specials Badges and you can use Magnets to draw them out. You can also capture these specials on your own munzees.

Thank you to all of our players and especially all the lefties out there! 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.
