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…

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 [email protected] 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

Newsletter: February 2017

February showed us a lot of love! We released some awesome new coinz, had some great specials and announced a new operation we’ve put way more than 1,000 hours into.

Take a look back on some of the things that happened last month and what to expect in March as well! 


At long last we are proud to announce the creation of ZeeOps- single player campaign missions to complete for rewards. These Operations work much like individual Clan Wars, but feature a range of Mission difficulty levels that require a variety of Munzee skills.

Learn more at zeeops.munzee.com!

 


Chocoholic

This February love was in the air- love of chocolate that is. We released Chocloate Heart Boxes that released three different kinds of chocolate when capped. Capping all three earned players an empty box of chocolate badge. Whether you had a Valentine or not, MHQ wanted to make sure you got something sweet!


Furry Forest Friends

This month 1,500 Faun Mythological Munzees scurried onto the map to greenies and Earth Mystery Munzees worldwide.The first of our Classical Mythological Munzee set, these furry forest dwellers are attracted to Earth Mystery Munzees, which were also released this month.

Order Earth Mystery Munzees and Elemental Munzee Paks today!

Easter will be here before we know it, so we gleefully announced that the whole of April is open for you to host and attend Munzee Tea Parties! The inspiration for these came from all round the world, so thank you for letting us know about your Easter and spring traditions

Be sure to get your event on the Munzee Calendar ASAP because there will be an art work deadline in a couple of weeks based on demand.

 


Hidden In Plain Sight

We’ve added some new Urban Camo munzees to the Online Store! These new designs are perfect for hiding the game pieces in public without worrying about them getting ripped up.These four new designs are available now for $7.50 for 20 stickers.

We’ve also changed the prices on the Mini Urban Camo Munzees to $5 for 20 stickers.

 


Coming in March…

Tell Us About Your Easter Traditions

Last year was a great year for events, and we want to make 2017 even better. As we plan for this year’s events, we want to incorporate our Everyone. Everywhere. theme and recognize our worldwide community. That begins with Easter events.

For the Easter event packages, we would like to reflect some of the worldwide Easter traditions. We’ve created a Google Form where you can tell us about your Easter traditions, e.g. Easter Bonnets, Easter Egg Hunts, Easter Parades, etc. These are community events and should reflect that.

We can’t wait to hear from you!

Munzee on!

Shamrocks and Easter Events

It’s hard to believe we are almost halfway through March. It’s been an exciting month so far, but there is plenty more to come. Let’s touch on a few items to start the week.

Shamrocks

The response to the sale of Virtual and Physical Shamrocks to raise money for Muscular Dystrophy organizations has been amazing! The donations that will be made from this fundraiser will be our largest yet, and it’s all because of you. We’re proud to have such wonderful and caring players.

As a reminder, both virtual and physical shamrocks will be removed from the store on March 17th at 23:59 MHQ time. (Reminder: MHQ is now UTC -5:00 due to Daylight Savings in Texas.) Virtual Shamrocks will remain on the map through April 10th at 23:59 MHQ time. You still have plenty of time to deploy and capture them before they disappear! Physical Shamrocks will remain on the map permanently. After they are removed from the store, they will become a MunzPak and special release item only.

Easter Events

Louise wanted us to share some (puntastic) information regarding Easter Events:

“Don’t be a chicken, hatch some plans to attend our Easter Events running from 17th March until 10th April. That’s right, they begin this week! Check the calendar or app for the closest events to you.

Team Munzee will be getting out and about to the events too, this Saturday we have Matt in Vancouver, Louise in London and Daniel Fischer in Prague. One or more members of MHQ will be attending the events this weekend in Southlake, TX too.

Don’t forget to capture the Event Indicator pin at each event you go to, it counts towards the number of attendees for the Party Crasher badges and the Easter Events are loaded with surprises for you, some of them hidden for now….
Magic Eggs have been made available to hosts for each Easter Event. If the event has an Event Badge it will be coded to that, if not, hosts will be made aware of which Munzee it’s linked to. Each player that captures the Magic Egg gets something free. I’m not yolking, these items are very egg-citing 😉 !

We hope you will join in with the Easter Bonnet competition at each event. There is a badge and a gallery on the blog waiting for you! It’s free to enter, just wear your best Easter hat and you’re in with a chance. Hosts will decide on the winner and send me the player name and a photo after the event. We can’t wait to see you in your best Easter hat!

Stay on the sunny side up and have an egg-ceptional week! Event hosts with any questions, please contact [email protected]

Our thanks to Louise for the great job she does managing and promoting our worldwide events. We would also like to thank our event hosts and hostesses because none of this is possible without you. Thanks for supporting our 2016 mission to grow local Munzee communities. Team Munzee is excited for what’s to come, and we hope you will be too!

Munzee on!

 

Small note from Rob: Double points on greens and emeralds only will begin Thursday, March 17 @ 00:01 through Sunday, March 20 @ 23:59 🙂 This is a scavenger hunt, so of course I’ve hidden this message at the bottom. An Easter egg if you will. See you out there on the trail.

Easter Events Update

Just a reminder: After this Friday (February 19th), we will only be offering generic artwork choices for Easter Events. If you haven’t submitted your artwork, you still have time!

If you’re still thinking about hosting an Easter Event, there’s still plenty of time to get events on the calendar! The dates for the Easter Events are Thursday 17th March – Sunday 10th April, and you can check out the original blog post here.

Louise is “chuffed with how, as always, players have got on board with the events”. There are almost 50 Easter Events on the calendar, so if you aren’t hosting your own, there are plenty to choose from!
