Christmas Events!

It’s that time again! We have just completed the Halloween events so now it’s time to start thinking about Christmas events. This year we are focussing on the Days of Christmas and these special packages are available for events throughout the whole of December.

Please get your events on the calendar and let me know which package you’d like. Each one has a unique host badge:

  • Partridge in a Pear Tree – Basic event and no proximity restrictions – $30
  • Two Turtle Doves – Partridge plus 20 virtuals – $50
  • Three French Hens – Turtle Doves plus badge and icon – $150
  • Four Calling Birds –  French Hens plus Eventzee – $200

We have something very exciting instead of the Emerald giveaway. It’s $20 per event, as usual, but the details will be shared during November. It’s going to be a fun addition attendees will love!

There is a badge to be won at each event for the “Most Christmassy Attendee” too. So dust off your dodgy jumpers or full on Santa costumes! The host will let me know who the winner is and you will feature on the blog.

This is the Attendee Badge that everyone will get and Father Christmas will be paying you a visit too!

So get those events on the calendar, orders in and artwork requests in nice and early please. As Trish’s diary fills up we will have to move to generic artwork.

If you’ve never hosted a Munzee event before don’t worry, I will guide you through the whole process and I look forward to working with you. If you’ve hosted before I look forward to working with you again!
Munzee On!

Letter From Zee Prez

Howdy Munzeers!

It’s time for a quick update on the overall progress and direction of Munzee! Over the past few months we’ve made some changes to the game and been working behind the scenes on a new version of the app. While I don’t have all of the details to share with you today I’d like to give you some information to help you know where we are headed.

As we move toward the 4.0 version of the Munzee app we are preparing many things behind the scenes. One of those is a much needed update to the point structure. In the beginning there was one type of Munzee, affectionately nicknamed the greenie. Other types were added over time with each becoming more and more valuable. The greenie sat in the shadows even though it is the cornerstone to the game. I want you to know that we have a plan for greenie points and it’s going to be rolled out soon. We love the greenie as much as you do and want to return the cornerstone to it’s place in the sun! In the meantime we will continue to update the point structure of many other types. You may notice the majority of point updates have happened to physical Munzee types. There is a purpose behind that as we know physical gameplay accomplishes our goals to get people active and moving. You will see us continue to drive the physical portion of the game forward since it is the majority of deploys worldwide, and always will be. Thanks for your patience during this big point update project.

Munzee 4.0 is a very large project as well. We aren’t quite ready to put it in the hands of beta testers yet, but we are feeling good about the progress through our alpha testing recently. The app is getting a complete makeover while the functionality you’ve come to expect will remain intact. The core gameplay is our focus while we also cleanup many side menus and organize features in a better way. We think you’re really going to enjoy it and can’t wait to get it out there in the field being tested. Stay tuned for more updates including information about beta testing and changes before the full launch of version 4.0.

I hope you’ve been participating in the variety of ways Munzee offers through gameplay options. We have events put on by players all of the world. Participate in Clan wars and join a group of 10 worldwide players to compete monthly in order to try and reach goals and win prizes. Recruiting for monthly clan wars is open on the 1st and 2nd of each month. You can also challenge yourself to complete our daily and weekly ZeeOps to earn prizes. We have plans to continue updating and evolving each of these interactive styles of gameplay after 4.0 launches and we can focus on each individually.

There are portions of the game you may think we’ve forgotten about, but believe me when I say that we have not. Munzee is huge and an intricate tapestry so we have to work on it one piece at a time currently! Remember our theme for the year? The Time Is Now! We remember and we’re working hard every day to make updates and keep things fresh. Please help us by growing the game and growing the map! The future of Munzee is so bright and we have so many great things in store. We can’t do any of this without our amazing Munzee community and we remember that fact daily. You are our focus.

Please contact us with questions, suggestions, and issues. My apologies if we don’t respond to every suggestion because we receive so many that we are really working on. The great ones might even make it into the game! I look forward to meeting some of you at upcoming events and interacting with others online!

Munzee On!

Mystery Munzee Point Increase!

If you’ve been paying attention, you may have noticed that we have slowly been rolling out point updates to a variety of different munzee types. We’re excited to announce that Mystery Munzee points are the latest to be updated! Starting NOW the points for Capturing, Deploying and Cap-Ons for Mystery and Mini Mystery Munzees has been increased to the following:

  • Deploy: 60
  • Capture and CapOn: Split 80 with a minimum of 20 as multiples of 5 (20/60, 30/50, 45/35, etc.)

With this point increase comes a merger of Mini Mysteries and Mysteries as well. Moving forward, both will just be called “Mysteries” regardless of their size**. Please note that this point increase is not retroactive, so past deploys and captures will not be increased.

In celebration of the new Mystery Munzee point structure we have a special offer in the Freeze Tag Online Store! From now until Wednesday at 23:59 MHQ if you buy two packs of Mystery Munzees (5 Pack) you’ll be given *additional stickers in each pack! To take advantage of this offer just buy a minimum of 2 Mystery Munzees in the online store, no code is necessary. Each additional set of 2 purchased will receive added free stickers.

The prevailing theory is that all these recent point increases are linked to the development of Munzee 4.0- and you wouldn’t be wrong in thinking that! Others seem to think the point increases are a drive to promote the physical side of Munzee gameplay and we agree with that theory as well! So stay tuned for more information regarding 4.0, point increases and more.

Munzee on!

*Free stickers will be a minimum $5 value for each order of 2 Mystery Munzee packs. They will be a mix of generic and pre-coded Munzee type stickers.
**Developer side note: the Munzee type code for mystery and minimystery has been combined and only one survives. This note is for those API developers who understand, the rest of us have no need to worry about this line. 😉

We’ll have some news next week regarding a special photo contest specific to adding photos to Munzees. So you might want to take advantage of the membership while it’s on sale! Again, we’ll have more information next week, but get ready to say cheese!

Thank you all and Munzee on!

Starting on July 6 at 00:01 MHQ 2,011 bouncing Clown Car icons will hit the map.  These colorful coupes will bounce on greenies every 6 hours or when capped. What’s a clown car without clowns though? Once a Clown Car special is captured, between one and three different clown icons will scatter on greenies within 1 mile for two hours. Since this is Munzee’s Birthday month all of these specials will last until July 31 at 23:59.

POINTS:

Clown Car
Capture – 77; CapOn – 11

Clown Scatter
Capture – 37; CapOn – 11

There just might be a badge or two for capturing Clown Car specials and the different Clown scatters. Since these will be on the map for the remainder of the month you might want to capture as many as you can. You never know what you might earn!

Clown Car specials will be attracted to Munzee Magnets so be sure to stock up on those in the Freeze Tag Online Store.

You CAN capture these specials on your own greenies and these will count toward the Specials Hunter badges as well.

As these jubilant jesters bounce across the world, remember to join in a Munzee event too! There’s a good amount of birthday events this weekend so check out the Event Calendar to find one near you!

Good luck on your harlequin hunting and Happy Birthday to Munzee! #MunzeeOn #CirqueDuMunz

New Towel Day Badges!

DON’T PANIC… It’s Towel Day!

Now as some of you may have noticed, there has been an error with the badge image for this event. The dreaded Error 42 screen has popped up on screens across the world. Well luckily just in time for the official Towel Day on May 25th, our developers have fixed the issue! Turns out someone gave them the wrong file. Simple mistake obviously.

So starting NOW you’ll notice that the Error 42 badge has been replaced with new artwork from guest artist Andy Cameron of WallaBee fame! We can’t take all the credit for this badge though. Well, we could, but that wouldn’t be very cool of us.

A huge thank you to Cleo Nordquist (QueenofDNile) for sharing her Towel Day WallaBee Unique concept with us!

Don’t Panic- Capture one Towel Day Special.

We’re also excited to offer a new challenge for the weekend! We’ve released a new badge for capturing 42 Towel Day Specials. Why 42? Well it’s the Ultimate Answer to Life, The Universe and Everything, of course. What was the Ultimate Question to Life, The Universe and Everything? Well that’s a question for another time.

The Answer To Life– Capture 42 Towel Day Specials.

These badges are retroactive, so if you’ve already captured 1-42 Towel Day Specials you will have earned both badges. Also please note that both the Towel Day Specials and the Hitchhiker Special scatters will count toward the badge.

Remember that 1,979 Munzee Towel Day Specials will be on the map until May 27th at 23:59, so be sure to cap as many as you can this weekend.

Good luck on your intergalactic journeys this weekend and Munzee on!

Expanded Prize Wheel Badges!

Step on up and try your luck! We’ve added new levels to our line of Prize Wheel Capture Badges!

Admittedly the first line of Prize Wheel badges were maybe a bit TOO easy to beat so we’ve stepped up the requirements for these new ones substantially! These badges continue to show off some of the prizes you might get playing carnival games.

New Prize Wheel badges are now live to earn and they are retroactive. Help out your fellow players and deploy a few Prize Wheels too! We’ve put Prize Wheel 5 packs back on sale for $17.50 (regularly $25). These will be on sale until Monday at 10:00 MHQ time, so don’t waste any time.

Good luck and spin away! Munzee on!
