6th Birthday Events UPDATE

Hello from a swelteringly hot London!

I hope you’re all getting excited about July and all the 6th Birthday events. There are 80 on the calendar to choose from! It’s not too late to get your events on there, it’s quite late for artwork though, our designers’ diaries are full to bursting and we can only accommodate pretty simple requests for July at this stage I’m afraid.

Trish has recently finished the badges for attending and hosting, they are SUPER! Here is a sneak preview for you. There are 4 host badges up for grabs, the Super Scott, Super Matt, Super Trish and Super Dylan. I’m on the Attendee Badge and there is an icon featuring Super Rob for everyone who goes to a Birthday event and captures the Event Indicator Pin.

Don’t forget that Dan the Man will be giving freebies to all attendees when they capture the event badge if the host has opted for that $20 extra and there will be surprises thrown in for all Birthday events as per usual, don’t miss out, plan your event today!

Stay safe and Munzee On!

MHQ Visit Requests

We love it when players choose to visit MHQ. To give you the best experience possible, we would love for you to let us know in advance. This is especially the case if you are traveling long distances and have a limited time to visit MHQ.

To ensure you have a great time visiting us, we have set up a Google Form that can be found here and on our contact page.

After filling out this form (which contains contact information and date/time of visit among other things), you will be contacted by Teraca (our Director of HR) to confirm your visit as well as let you know any pertinent information. If there is a conflict with your request, she will try and work out a solution with you.

**Please note that it is not necessary to fill out this form when attending official MHQ events found on the Munzee Calendar such as our 6th Birthday Event or MHQ Bash. The on-site Munzee store is also open anytime during our work hours, so this form is specific to those players who are interested in a special tour/visit.

We’ve had players from all over the world visit MHQ, and we can’t wait to meet more people. Schedule your visit today!

Introducing the Water Mystery Munzee!

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 a Water Mystery Munzee three water droplets will scatter to greenies within one mile of the surrounding area. When you cap the scattered droplet you have the chance of drinking pure water, toxic water or salt water. Depending on the cleanliness of the water you will either earn points, lose points, or nothing will happen.

The water will evaporate after two hours though so be quick! Water Mysteries will also attract Hydra Mythological Munzees soon as well.

Name: Water Mystery Munzee

Points:
Deploy: 50
Cap/CapOn: Split of 60 with min of 5.

When captured, three water droplets spread on greenies within a mile.

These have three outcomes:

  • Pure Water: Cap: 50, CapOn: 10
  • Salt Water: Cap: 0, CapOn: 0
  • Toxic Water: Cap: -5, CapOn: 10

Availability

Water Mystery Munzees are available NOW in the Munzee Online Store. They are physical stickers sold in blocks of 10 for $20 USD.

You can also stock up on Fire, Ice and Earth Mysteries in the Elemental Munzee Pak which will include 10 Fire, Ice and Earth Mystery Munzees for $40. You can also find these in the Munzee Online Store.

Capturing Water Mystery Munzees will also help count toward the new Elemental Munzee badges too!

Have fun, and #MunzEE on! #E1EW

Munzee’s Monthly Giveaway Video Contest!

You may know Daniel Hammock as “hksfarm,” “Support,” or “The Ban Hammer” of Munzee, but did you know he’s quite the Youtube video connoisseur?

Hksfarm hosts the “Munzee’s Monthly Giveaway” video contest where players around the world submit Munzee-themed videos for a chance to win prizes. If you haven’t already you should join his Facebook group and join in on the fun!

The rules are simple:

  • hksfarm posts the theme for month in the “Munzee’s Monthly Giveaway” Facebook group.
  • Players film and edit a Munzee video relating to that theme and upload it to Youtube.
  • Once it’s uploaded, players share it in the Facebook group and their name will be added into the prize drawing.
  • On the last day of the month, submissions will be final and hksfarm will draw a name from those that submitted a video. 

In addition for a chance to win prizes, players will also earn a sweet Unicorn badge for participating and the winner will receive the coveted Golden Unicorn badge! To qualify for the badge and giveaway, videos MUST be on YouTube.com and link posted in a separate post, also post your username. No skill or expensive camera equipment are needed because the final drawing is random. 

This month’s challenge is to share a video of a deployed munzee in the dark with the moon in the footage, so get ready to adventure through the night!

Munzee Newsletter: May 2017 Wrap-Up

In May Munzee was busy moving into our new offices, but that’s not to say we didn’t keep our players busy too. Take a look back on some of the things that happened last month and what to expect this month as well!

We’ve spent the last couple months getting the ALL NEW Munzee Headquarters up and running! We have upgraded our offices to a much larger space which is ideal for our constantly growing staff. The new building is located just a few miles from our previous headquarters too, so we still get to call McKinney, TX home.

Some of our players helped us break in the new location with our MH-New Open House event and they even got to see us monkeying around first hand!


Flat Matt Has Hit The Map! 

In November 2015 Flat Rob was released and he’s been traveling the world ever since. All that travel can be a bit lonely though, so we’re excited to release a similarly two-dimensional friend- Flat Matt!

Although Flat Rob comes out to play when Rob is traveling, Flat Matts will be live on the map during days with specific sporting events.


Hail Hydra

The Hydra is the latest Mythological Munzee, and the second in our Classical Myth line. Not much is known about this many-headed beast, although it is said to guard the fabled Fountain Of Youth.

Find a Hydra near you on the Specials Map! 


Victorious Vacation

The new Timeshare Munzee is the latest in our Destination line of munzees alongside the Motel, Hotel and Virtual Resort. This physical credit item features 5 Rooms so the first 5 players to cap the Timeshare get a room deployed. Here’s the kicker though, Rooms only stay deployed for 30 days!

Join Rockin’ Rob Vardeman and get your Timeshare in the Munzee Store TODAY!


Totally Tubular Turtles

To celebrate World Turtle Day on May 23rd, Munzee released turtle specials from May 19th through the 28th. These shell-shocking specials were a big hit and helped raise awareness about our slow-crawling friends.

Show your support and buy a World Turtle Day Coin HERE! 


Coming in June…

– We’ve gone green to try and clean up the map.

– Don’t forget to keep hydrated.
