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.

– Thumbs up are in order.

Record Breaking Weekend!

Now that’s how you celebrate Birthday month!

Thanks to the might of our players we broke numerous Munzee records this weekend! With Matt and Rob attending events both nationally and internationally, and the rest of the team on deck we were ready for a big weekend, but once again our players have taken it to the next level.

On Saturday we clocked in an AMAZING 1,002,986 captures in a single day! The rest of the weekend was just as crazy with 511,567 on Friday and 789,303 on Sunday totaling over two million captures all weekend! We can’t even begin to show our gratitude to the players worldwide for helping us hit this milestone.

We also saw our largest Munzee Events EVER this weekend. Germany was the place to be with three events all with over 200 attendees! Saturday’s event in Bielefeld, Germany had 261 event indicator captures which is the largest event a Munzee player has ever hosted. We’ll need to step up our game for MHQ Bash! Rob will certainly have plenty to say about his European adventures when he gets back, so stay tuned to hear more.

Munzee meets OWL event in Paderborn, Germany.

We’d like to extend a BIG thank you to Scott, Daniel and the tech team for handling this huge weekend with zero downtime. As many of you know we’re always working hard to better our infrastructure, and tests like this showcase how far we’ve come.

Of course, thank you to all of our players worldwide for helping us continue to grow and exceed expectations! We can’t grow the game without you, so cheers to all!

Munzee on!

Munzee Artwork Posters!

One of the many great things about Munzee is the never-ending supply of unique, sometimes absurd, artwork that our designers continue to churn out day after day. The many different styles of our graphic designers have become a hallmark of the game so we’re excited to be able to offer some of those pieces as posters in the online store.

Currently we have a handful of designs including the ZeeOps Mission Icons, the completed Birthday Comic Panel and Timeshare Munzee badges. We’d love for more suggestions about your favorite Munzee, WallaBee and Eventzee artwork though, so let us know!

Posters come in a variety of sizes and prices, so whether you’re decorating your office or your home there’s a fit for you!

Check out the collection in the Munzee Online Store HERE

Munzee Newsletter: June 2017 Wrap-Up

We spent a lot of June preparing for Birthday month in July, but we were happy to make some big announcements too. Take a look back on some of the things that happened last month and what to expect this month as well!

Version 3.3.3 of the Munzee app was released in June. Make sure you have the most up to date version at the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store.

New Features/Fixes:

– We’ve added an in-app ZeeOps dashboard to track your operations.
– The main menu now features accompanying icons for all entries.
– Badge details now show the original description even after a badge has been earned.
– The coin discover request popup will now only show as toast message (transparent at the bottom) when not on the coins page.
– Improved scanner (focus issues for some phones are fixed)
– Minor fixes and improvements


 

Just Add Water! 

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 the scattered water droplet you have the chance of drinking pure water, toxic water or salt water!

Purchase Water Mysteries and other Elementals in the Munzee Store!


 

Virtual Reality 

Wouldn’t it be great if you could easily swap out old virtual munzees in popular destinations for newer virtuals worth more points? Well now you can with the new Virt Swap tool! Using the Munzee website you can now go back to your older virtual type munzees and swap in new virtual types and MVMs.

Stock up on new MVMs in the Munzee Online Store!


 

Opposites Attract 

Can you feel the attraction? In June we revealed the Munzee Magnets as a part of July Physical MunzPaks! These brand new items are temporary credits you can use to attract Seasonal Specials and Mythological Munzees for a set amount of time. It’s easy, you just Magnetize a greenie of your choosing and that munzee will then attract up to 3 specials or myths for up to one hour!

Sign up for a Physical MunzPak and get 10 Magnet credits!


 

Garfield GO

Munzee was proud to work with our partner Freeze Tag to launch Garfield GO this month!

Garfield GO is a brand new augmented reality treasure hunting game, featuring everyone’s favorite lasagna-loving cat! Odie has scattered Garfield’s comic collection and buried treasures around the world — Help Garfield get them all back, while scavenging for hidden chests along the way!

The game is currently available in Australia, Canada, and the US via the App store and Google Play.


 

Coming in July…

– Spectacular 6th Birthday Comic Book Specials are on the map!

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 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.

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 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
