On Your Mark, Get Set, GO! #WorldBicycleDay Specials!

UPDATE: as of 6/10/21, World Bicycle Day specials will now bounce around the map until 23:59 on June 30th. This has also been updated below.

In addition, Fancy Flat Lou will also scatter the Starting Line, Midway, and Finish Line munzees, which will reveal her own version of the random race result icons. Caps of Fancy Flat Lou will NOT count towards the capture badges described below, but caps of her Starting Line, Midway, and Finish Line munzees WILL. We’ve also extended the badge line so now there are 5 badges to earn!

Tomorrow is World Bicycle Day, which was established by the United Nations General Assembly due to bicycles’ historical significance and their many benefits as a transportation solution: “simple, affordable, reliable, clean and environmentally fit sustainable.” As our Global Events Director, Louise, can attest, the humble bicycle can be the start of something great, and is definitely worthy of being featured in our app! Starting at 12:00 MHQ on June 2nd, World Bicycle Day specials will bounce around the map until 23:59 MHQ on June 30th.

World Bicycle Day Specials

Riders will be racing in waves, but should reach a total of 1,200 — 300 per bike. They will bounce around on the map every 4 hours or when captured. You can find these speed demons at the following landing pads:

Each bike will be worth 150 points for the Capture and 50 points for the CapOn, so you don’t want to miss out! Champion Choppers and Unicorn Unicycles will be attracted to Physical Magnets, while Toy Trikes and Bicentennial Bicycles will be attracted to Virtual Magnets. To access these specials, please turn on your “All Expiring Specials” and “All Limited Edition Specials” filters.

Racers Ready

These bouncers also have a unique twist to them! When you capture a World Bicycle Day special, a Starting Line Munzee will scatter nearby, similar to a Laser Trail. This means only you (the capper) will see the Starting Line Munzee on the map. Once you start the race you’ll need to find the Midway Munzee scattered nearby, followed by the the Finish Line Munzee! If you find you’re just out of range, you’ll be happy to know that you can use Rover Treats to have Rover fetch them for you!

Additionally, when you capture a Finish Line Munzee, you’ll receive the random race result icon as well! They behave the same way as the Jack In Zee Box icons in that only the Finish Line Munzee will be visible on the map, but the result will be revealed once you capture it. Above is an example of the 1st Place Champion Chopper result! You’ll be able to earn 1st through 3rd Place for all bikes, so keeping racing to earn all 12 results!

Badges

There will be five badges to earn for these specials. They are all based on the total number of World Bicycle Day specials AND scatters you capture, but just how many captures it takes to earn all 5 badges will be kept a secret! Watch for a badge reveal post in the following days!

We hope you’re ready to rock-and-roll with these specials!

Munzee on!

Eventzee App Update In Relation To Munzee

We’re excited to announce a new version of the Eventzee app (and logo!) will be available for download later this week! The latest version of Eventzee has been totally reworked to offer virtual events and scavenger hunts for any occasion.

As excited as we are for the Eventzee team, there will be a transition period regarding the new app. You can read all about the new features, exciting partnerships, and more on the Eventzee blog. The purpose of this announcement on the Munzee blog is to identify some of the key changes, and how they affect Munzee and Eventzee’s relationship.

The new Eventzee app is an entirely new build, so when the new app is available you will not update your current version of the Eventzee app. Instead, you will need to search for the new version in your phone’s app store. This means that the Eventzee database has been restructured as its own and will no longer be a part of Munzee. 

New User Sign-up:

Since Eventzee will no longer be sharing databases, Munzee and Eventzee accounts will no longer be linked. So if you choose to join an Eventzee hunt you will need to create a new account.

Munzee Events:

Moving forward, Eventzee hunts will no longer be an additional add-on item for Munzee Events. This means that bonus points, and badges, etc will no longer be available for future events. However, this is subject to change as we develop our plan on incorporating this new app into Munzee events! 

Please note that some Fall Into Spring events with Eventzee packages are still scheduled on the calendar. These will continue as planned, but players will need to use the previous Eventzee app in order to participate. The new app will be replacing the older app in the App and Play Stores at the end of this week. So if you wish to participate in these Munzee Event hunts you need to make sure to keep the older version of the app on your phone since you will not be able to redownload it. 

Eventzee Legacy Badges

Badges currently available to be earned in Eventzee will become legacy badges. Legacy badges earned will still show in the Munzee app, and any Eventzee hunts completed on the old system (for example at a Fall Into Spring event) will count toward them. The new Eventzee app will not show these badges. 

Eventzee Themed Huntz

The themed scavenger hunts sold earlier this year will not be available in the new Eventzee app.  Anyone who purchased these hunts will still be able to finish them using the old Eventzee app. As stated above, the old app will be supported for the time being, but you must have it downloaded to your phone before the new app is released. 

We appreciate all of your support and hope that should your company, family, or organization need a customized scavenger hunt tool you look no further than Eventzee. This new app is top of the line, and will be able to offer more opportunities than the previous app has ever been able to. Thank you all again, we’re excited to see where Eventzee goes from here!

You Can Now Earn Munzee Badges by Playing Eventzee!

We like to reward our players for reaching milestones in the Munzee universe, and we’re always trying to expand those rewards, especially in the form of badges. We’re proud to announce two new lines of badges that can be earned by playing our photo scavenger hunt- Eventzee. These badges are retroactive and will show in the Munzee app when the badges launch. They will appear in the Eventzee app with the next app update, which is slated for some time next week.

These new badges are the Photographer and Pioneers of Gold lines and will each have three levels with possible future additions. The best way to achieve these badges is to join the free Weekend Photo Scavenger Hunts hosted by Eventzee each weekend. These worldwide hunts run from Thursdays to Sundays with clues going live at 3 PM MHQ time. Your photo will be either approved or rejected and you will earn points based on your submissions. We’ve also included a new cumulative leaderboard that you can visit online at www.eventzeeapp.com/leaderboard.

To join these hunts just find the Weekend Warriors event on the Eventzee in-app calendar and RSVP. If you’re interested in hosting your own Eventzee hunt please contact eventze@munzee.com and we’ll get you set up with the right package!
