Flat Robs in June & July

We thought it would be nice to update everyone on a few upcoming times Rob will be out of the office, and therefore Flat Rob will be coming out to play! The July dates will give everyone a chance to plan ahead. We hope everyone enjoys seeing Flat Rob on the map. Stay tuned for more announcements soon about some *events you’ll be able to meet him (and Matt) at. Flat Robs may appear in the store sporadically during these times with no warning or additional blog posts. Additional dates for FR (and FM) to join the map are still being worked on for July and August! (Maybe more in June too?)

Jun 8 – 13
July 4 – 16
July 21 – 23
July 28 – 31

Munzee On!

*Hint: Germany and Finland – get ready!

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.

Coinz Of The Month, Evolution Coin, Re-released Coinz and Flat Robs!

April isn’t over yet- Coinz are on sale NOW!

We apologize for the delay on this month’s Coinz of The Month set, our move to the new office slowed down the shipping process a bit. This month’s coinz feature The Sillyman from our 2015 April Fool’s special as well a cool Earth Day planted tree design. Remember that COTM are $15 for a set of two coinz and are limited to one per player. If you missed out on last month’s COTM we still have a few sets available as well! You can buy both sets HERE. 

 

We’re also excited to release a new Evolution Munzee coin which is perfect for tracking your Evo captures. The Evolution Munzee Coin is for sale for $10 and you can buy one HERE.

The coinz keep on coming! We’re pleased to re-release our first set of Munzee Coinz: The Longsword, Greenie and Flat Rob! These were released in very limited quantity last year so we’re happy to restock for those that missed out. The Longsword, Greenie and Flat Rob coins are $10 a piece and you can buy those HERE.

Speaking of our favorite flat fella… CZeeO Rob Vardeman is out of town so Flat Robs are on the map NOW until Sunday at 23:59 MHQ. We also have Flat Robs for sale in the store for the weekend so stock up and deploy while you can!  Flat Robs a $5 each and you can buy those HERE. 

Please note that since it is Friday we won’t have anyone in the office for the weekend, so Coinz shipments won’t go out until Monday. We appreciate your understanding and we hope you’re as excited as we are for all the coinz craziness!

Munzee on!

Update on Munzee Events from Louise

Hello everybody!

I hope you’re having a lovely April and enjoying the events this month. In the first 2 weeks, over 1600 of you have been to a Tea Party! There are plenty more over the next couple of weeks, and there is still time to host your own if you can’t attend one. Lots of stuff up for grabs with the specials, badges, extra points, Zeeops credits and Emeralds in our new gardens!

I also have some really exciting new products available to events based on what you’ve been asking for. All new items have been added to the Events price list and include:

  • Personal Munzees and T-Shirts featuring your Event Badge
  • Stickers featuring the Event Pin image or your Event Special Icon
  • Coinz featuring the Event Indicator Pin image or your Event Badge

We are most excited about the Coinz and cannot wait to see them out there. We don’t have to wait long though – the first event to have custom made coinz is on 29th April in North Carolina. Matt will be delivering them in person, so go along if you can; it will be an event not to miss!

There are some quite long lead times on a few of the new products so please get your events on the calendar, artwork requests in and we can get rolling!

Enjoy the rest of the Tea Parties and the new products, and thank you for your support as always.

Munzee On!

Munzee Newsletter: March 2017

In March we celebrated our favorite color- GREEN. We also gave back to some wild friends with the help of our players, announced some birthday plans, crashed at a couple hotels and updated the app. 

Take a look back on some of the things that happened this month and what to expect next month as well!


We kicked off the month with Safar-Zee, a fundraising effort focused on helping wildlife worldwide. For the month of March we sold Paw Print special virtual icons with proceeds going to help wildlife rescue organizations. As always our players showed their enthusiasm from the start and have already helped In-Sync Exotics and our newly adopted tiger Mystery.

The special Paw Prints will be on the map through 23:59 MHQ Time on April 30, 2017. The virtual garden above In-Sync is permanent. 

 


Greet Garfield in Munzee, IN!

This month we announced some of Munzee’s 6th Birthday celebration plans to take over Muncie, Indiana and turn it into Munzee, Indiana! Join Rob the weekend of July 21st for a number of fun events including a trip to the Delaware County Fair! Rob will also be visited by a certain fat cat who is pretty popular around those parts.


Munzee Gone GREEN

We celebrated St. Patrick’s Day weekend in full force with a triple point weekend on some of our favorite green munzees, expediated Leprechauns and a limited time Leprechaun badge line!

Needless to say, our players made the most of the weekend and Saturdaywas in the Top 10 Overall days of both captures and deploys.

 


At Your Service

While February kept players busy capturing the treacherous Jewel Thief on precious stones, in March a new stealthy fella began 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!


The up-Dating Game

This month we updated Munzee to version 3.3.2. Be sure to update your app to make the most of the following new features.

  • Changes to the Own Socials list to fit overall look and feel.
  • Added the ability to deploy Socials from the player’s Details page.
  • Fixed photo submission issues for Places Munzees.
  • Added the ability to choose between select installed navigation apps.
  • Added a quick way to reset and activate all filters.
  • Updated the scanner.
  • Updated translations.
  • Minor bug fixes and improvements.

 


Coming in April…

– We know we’ve been BASHful, but stay tuned for some news soon.

– Jokes on you, this started already.

– Have any righteous Referrals? Asking for a friend…

April Fool’s Day 2017 – The Prankster

All sorts of shenanigans occur on and around April Fool’s Day, and this year is no different. We’ve noticed a mischievous character going by “The Prankster” around the office lately, and we think we’ve learned his plans.

 

The Prankster has been taking some cues from a few of our newest Mystery Munzees, so you need to be careful when you go after him. When you capture him, one of three things will happen:

  1. The Prankster Burns You – When you feel the heat of The Prankster’s jokes, it doesn’t end well. You lose five (5) points, but the burn counts towards the First-, Second-, and Third Degree Burn badges.
  2. The Prankster Freezes You – The Prankster is cold hearted, and he’ll show you that. You lose one (1) point and you get frozen for one (1) minutes, but the freeze counts towards the Frost Bite, Big Freeze, and Ice-Solated badges.
  3. The Prankster Gets Foiled – Just because you don’t lose doesn’t mean you win. You don’t lose or earn any points.

Each scenario will also earn you a badge! You can earn the Playing With Fire, Cold-Hearted, and Zilch, Zip Nada, Nothing badges for getting burned, getting frozen, and foiling The Prankster, respectively.

Details

Dates: March 31st at 00:01 MHQ time through April 9th at 23:59 MHQ time

Capture Points: -5, -1, or 0
CapOn Points: 14

Number of Pranksters on the Map: 1,741

Bounce Time: The Prankster will bounce on greenies every 6 hours or when capped

The Mystery Munzee line wasn’t the only line of munzees that The Prankster was taking cues from. He also learned something special from the Mythological Munzees. You CAN capture The Prankster on your own munzees.

Have fun!

Tea Parties Kick Off Next Weekend!

Hello from London! It’s nearly time for tea!

The calendar is looking wonderful with more events being added by the day and we are getting ready to kick the Tea Parties off next weekend. There is still time to host an event by submitting one here: https://calendar.munzee.com/submit. Trish’s diary is very full so any art requests would have to be very simple at this stage or we won’t be able to get them done in time I’m afraid.

Most events are including the Tea Pot add on, this is $20 and awards a present to each attendee as they scan the relevant munzee (usually the event badge). Hosts please email me at louise@munzee.com if you would like to add this to your event but haven’t yet done so.

We are all looking forward to seeing your fun hats too so please feel free to come to the events in your finery! This Mad Hat badge is up for grabs for the winner at each one and the hosts will receive it too! Hosts just need to email me a picture of the winner and their Munzee username.

We are still working on new offerings available to events and should be in a position to reveal them over the next couple of weeks and even showcase one of them at an event at the end of April, details to follow….

Hosts and attendees alike should be excited to hear I have a new line of badges for you. They will start on 1st April and are for attending events, yes they are retroactive too! I brainstormed with local players whilst Down Under on these and will be interested to see how many you all have!

Finally, on a personal note, I wanted to say thank you to those that have emailed and messaged me about the sad and scary events in London yesterday. Us Londoners are brave and strong, we will drink tea and carry on!

Munzee on and stay safe everyone!
Louise x
